        Hi, here's a hand that made me wonder if I played it correctly. The players at the table seemed to be rather loose so I figured they would call a $10 bet with almost any hand. I re-raised because I thought my opponent would raise with Ax so I'd be ahead. I thought if he had a high pocket pair he would play more aggressively and raise more. On the flop I was sure I was behind so I folded. Was it a mistake to raise this high pre-flop? Is it better to wait and see the flop before committing this many chips? Thanks.

          Hi kraxx0r! With AK or any hand, I want to make standard raises. Varying the bet sizes is the largest tell that many players have, as they bet more with a good hand and less with a bad or marginal hand. A standard opening raise is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With no limpers, I will raise to 3BB or 6 chips. I then get 4 callers and a smaller than normal raise to 40. If I think that the opps that called my raise will fold, I will re-raise and size my re-raise at the top end of my standard size (between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise), so I would raise to 130.... but there is a problem with this, as that amount is over 1/3 my stack, which pot-commits me, so I would need to shove. Since I would need to shove, I will call the extra 30 and hope to see a flop. When the opp re-raises to 200, I need to shove or fold. I've put too many of my chips into the pot to call and then fold the flop, so I need to shove or fold preflop. Standard raise sizes are a big key in poker and will be something that you will get into much more with this promotion. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Hi,

                  I've just passed the quiz with a 14/15 result. However, in the beginning of the quiz it said "Your account is not eligible for this promotion. You are still welcome to take the quiz."

                  Is that a different promotion?

                  Thanks.

                    Hi kraxx0r!

                    I'm not sure why it did that, never seen nor heard of that happenning before.

                    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.
