              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 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.

                Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
                So the table was fairly tight which is why I chose it...not as many all in maniacs... I'm thinking I could have got more out of this hand but I'm not sure how. I limped hoping someone after me would raise so I could call and hit the set and stack him...but it didn't play out that way. I called the post flop bet as it was small and I had a pretty nice draw, turns out I was right, but I wasn't going to raise or initiate because of that Q, but I still feel like I lost money here...whaddaya think?

                      A table dynamic that's tight is not going to make as many mistakes as a loose table. In poker, we make money from other players mistakes. umbup: Limping in would be fine, if every player frequently calls a pre-flop raise and based on the limping action(that may be the case) But our hand is just so strong and we will have position post flop! I'd open for 3x + 1BB for each limper to try and thin the field down to at most 3way post flop. The less players that are involved in the pot, the better..as it'll increase our overall hand strength/equity and make our decisions a lot easier post flop. Your turn raise is fine, it looks bluffy and you have a nut hand! But what were you trying to get value from on a 4 card straight board texture? We had TT which limits the combos of other possible Tx. On the river, I'd bet a little less than half pot to ensure that we get called by a weaker holding. The villain checked the flop, bet the turn and checked river...when they called our turn raise it can mean several things...but I am more inclined to believe that they have a range of Qx weak kicker (maybe even 2pairs) or a range of 2nd pair trying to get to show down.

                      Well done on the quiz! Your first Bank Roll Builder buy-in will be awarded to you within the next 24 hours! Please use this buy-in at a full table of 1/2c 9-Max NLHE, as your training is focused on this game format. If you encounter any difficult situations, post a hand replay in your thread and we'll analyze it. Good luck at the tables!

                        Don't slow play AA
                        Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
                        Well this one hurt. just before this hand I was up 50cents and doing pretty well... As you can see I slowed played these but I don't think our AK winner was going anywhere even if I shoved preflop...I chose to slow play and was happy when I got action but as you see it didn't go my way...I think I should have let them go when the 10 hit the turn but I didn't and payed for it... Two hands later my KK got cracked by the same villain with AK again and I'm bust... So what's next?

                            Hi, nice start to your session! This is an unlucky spot post flop. No worries. With the best "starting hand" in NLHE we want to play this hand as aggressively as possible pre-flop. Slow playing should only be utilized when we have a extremely strong hand/the nuts post flop, all AA will be post flop most of the time is just an over pair in a multi-way pot.

                            Yes it is perfectly fine to squeeze out one of the villains and in this case villain2! Let's start with when villain9 5x on the BTN and villain2 in the big blind click back 3bets to 18c making the pot total 31c. This is a potential multi way pot if the we call and villain9 elects to call in position. We want to isolate one of the two villains for a heads up pot all in pre-flop, as it'll greatly increase our hand strength/equity post flop in the pot If we re-raise this pot to 98c to $1.28. vs. , we are over a 93% favorite to win the hand "preflop". So let's get maximum value by setting up the pot size to get stacks in pre-flop. If we flat call, depending on the bet sizing post flop it'll be difficult to get stacks in, as we all have a = stack depth of 100bb+ and ultimately be playing the pot out of position in a multiway pot.
