          Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
          Readless, Preflop I Raised about the total pot size to try and limit the number of players. But most of them called and one raised all in. I decided to call but not sure if I should have. I got lucky and won that hand but maybe i should not have called since it isn't superior to AK or AQ or pocket A, K, and maybe Q.

            Hi Angel.LiS2! With AJ (or any hand that I'm going to make a raise with), I'm going to make a standard opening raise here, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, with 2 limpers, I'll raise to 5BB or 10 chips. Everyone at the table calls except for the last opp to act, that shoves. This puts me in a really bad situation, because I'm behind bigger aces and also all pocket pairs. Also, I have absolutely no clue how many of the other opps may call too and AJ does not play anywhere near as well against multiple opps. Due to these reasons, I'm mucking AJ here (with as many opps that called my raise, I'm even mucking AQ or AK here, along with any small/mid pair). It's just not worth the risk to basically play bingo, especially with an unmade hand, as I only have ace high. One thing that we want to do as poker players is to not be results oriented. We want to make the best decisions possible for a given situation. If we continually do that, the good resluts will follow. There will be hands that are played well that lose, along with ones that are played poorly and win. The key is to make the best decisions possible. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

              Please let me know when you attend the Getting Started live training session, because that has to be done before we can move onto the next step.

                  Yes, it's the one under live training. There will be other ones that you'll have to attend and participate in later in the process too.

                        Hi Angel.LiS2!

                        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 and notifying us. 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.

                        John (JWK24)

                            Hi Angel.LiS2!

                            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.

                              I started with $1.60 and it started not well... BUT later I rebounded as you can see here. This was a very tough spot for me. I called easily thinking that I had the best hand with pocket K. But when he raised me i thought he had pair queen top kicker. Did I think wrong? What should I have doneee? Thenn it turned out great after. I was BB and so after seeing the flop I saw that I had many outs, so I played this hand out. = ) What do you thinkk?
