    Hello!
    My name is André and this is the first time I'm posting in the forums.
    I've played some play money games, a sit n go freeroll and also some tournament freerolls!

    So, what should I do now?

        Done! I attended the lesson about a minute ago! André kinda liked my name Anyway, here's a hand: Okey, so my problem with this one is not really the hand. I just don't know how to play at play money tables, nobody takes it so serious so it's quite impossible to know what you are up against. I'm guessing that that might also be the case at the micro limit tables. So do you got any tips on how I should do? André

          This hand was from a tournament. I'm not sure what i was going to do there, it was a free-roll, about 1500 people left.

            Hi awesomeandre! The low level micro stakes won't be much different. With KT from the button, I get a limp, a min raise, then a call in front of me. While I could call, I'm going to make a standard 3-bet here and size it at 3X the previous bet, so I'll raise to 12. I'd rather raise, as my hand will play better against less opponents. The flop doesn't help me at all, so when it checks to me, I'll check behind and hope to get a free turn card. The turn J doesn't help me either and now there is a very small bet and a min raise. Since I don't even know if a K will get me the best hand, I'm going to muck here and save my chips for a better spot. ------------------- Tourney hands won't help with this promotion, as it's only for full ring cash games. Once you earn a buy-in from this promotion, playing any cash tourney will disqualify you from being able to earn further buy-ins. With KQ from UTG, I'm mucking this since I'm out of position. Also, one thing that I NEVER do is to open-limp. If I'm the first one that is getting into the pot, I'm raising or folding and never limping. Open-limping hands is a large chip leak, as most players that do it are playing hands that they should be folding. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Hi awesomeandre!

                  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 play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables only 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. It's always best to buy-into a table with the maximum that you can. That way, you can get paid more for your monster hands.

                  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 analyse them for you.

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

                  When you've done all this we will move you onto the next stage.

                        Hi Andre!

                        You need to keep playing with it and to post a hand here that you had trouble with or lose the buy-in with.

                              Hi awesome, Preflop bet sizing is too small... the standard recommendation for 3-betting an open raiser is 3x their total bet size, which in this case would be .12c. I would generally prefer to flat call though for the .04c in position on the opener and proceed from there without reads on the table. On the flop you continuation bet when checked to, I think that's good. We can maybe get some better pocket pairs to fold, and we protect against hands that we're beating but have equity like KQ. Plus if we check behind and he fires the turn we get a little lost on how to proceed with this type of hand strength. Once we get called on the flop, I would shut it down and give up. The board is totally dry, his flop check/calling range will include pretty much all hands that beat us mostly, a lot of Ax hands up to AQ and a few slowplaying monsters. In this hand you turned an open ended straight draw and checked behind to take a free card, PERFECT. He's not folding to another bet imo so this is a good line. And checked down the missed river, I think again is perfect... his line now is consistent with an ace holding, and he will never fold this to a river bet, so just give up. There's a very small chance he was out of line preflop with 87, which would also play post flop in the same way that he did, but we beat that anyway and are not likely to get paid off by it if we bet, so no value in betting this river.
