Suited connectors are great to play against multiple opponents when we can see a flop cheaply. This is because we sometimes flop very strong hands with a flush or straight. We only want to play them though when we can see the flop cheaply. You won't win often enough to make paying large preflop bets profitable. Furthermore, be careful about flopping a pair with suited connectors. You will often be facing a pair with a better kicker, or an overpair. Again, with suited connectors, we are looking for straight or flush draws, not pairs. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

You made your straight on the river, but any time we have a straight (or a flush) we need to look at the board and see if someone can have a better straight than us. In this case, it was possible for someone to hold Q10 and that would have fit the action thus far in the hand. The same is true when we have a flush but aren't holding the A. When we recognize this danger then we can adjust our line. Rather than reraising, we can just call. This will save us some money in the cases where we are beat. It is hard not to lose money in these spots, but we can try to minimize the damage. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                    Hi 7yay!

                    Now we want to get you playing on the real money tables. Next up, and spend some time on this one , study the Poker Basic Course and take the basic assessment quiz at the end of that course.

                    Once you have passed this quiz, please let us know and your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours of passing it. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion.

                    Use this first buy-in to then play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you get your first buy-in and start playing these games and we'll continue on from there.

                        Hi 7yay!

                        Congrats on passing the quiz. Your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion.

                        Use this first buy-in to then only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as you will be able to earn another buy-in should this happen.

                        Use all that you have learned so far to try some real money games (1/2 cent tables). Post any hands that you have difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze them for you.

                        Also, please attend the 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section.

                        Please let me know when you receive the buy-in and attend the training session.

                            Hey John!
                            I have received the $2 Bonus (and didn't do well with it ) and I am enrolled in the bet sizing live training on the 27th.
                            I'm going to post a couple of hands that I wasn't too happy with.
                            Thank You
