          Hi spmurphy1, We can see that you did attend the session today. Did you find it useful? Did you learn something from it that you didn't know before? Next Step Next up play some 9-handed full-ring play money tables. Make sure the tables have no empty seats. Find a hand that caused you difficulty or cost you chips and using the hand replayer post it here in the Forum. Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.
          Once you've posted your hand we will analyse it for you and then continue on from there. Raiser umbup:

            Hi royalraise85, Yes, I found the 'Getting started with Pokerstars' very useful thanks. I played a 9 handed full ring play money table today. Please analyse the below for an interesting hand I played. Limped in on the button with a medium non-suited connector. I hit a trip of 8s on the flop but lost to a flush who went all in on the river.
            Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

              Hi spmurphy1! With 78o on the button, I'm either going to make a standard raise (3BB+1BB for each limper) or I'm going to fold. There are just way too many problems that I can run into by limping, as I will very rarely ever get the nuts. The majority of the time I'll miss the flop or hit one pair with a bad kicker. Due to this, I'm folding preflop. I try to only see about 20% of flops and to get 78o into the range that I would play, I would have to see 55% of flops... which is way, way too many. If I was in the hand and saw trip 8's, with only a very small bet in front of me and 5 opps in the hand, I need to raise here. I'd like to raise less, but due to the number of opps in the hand, I need to make a pot-sized raise here and will raise to 340. I'll then have to re-evaluate later in the hand to see what to do, but if I bet less than 340, then anyone with a flush draw will be getting the correct odds to try to outdraw me, which is something I don't want to do. The same thing for the turn, but with only 2 opps in the hand, I only need to raise 2/3 of the pot, so I will raise to 460. If I get raised here, it's most likely by a flush, so I will definitely need to re-evaluate and see if calling their raise is worth it or not (I do have 10 outs to a full house or quads). The river is a blank for me and the opp bets 100 again. With two opps calling two raises, one could very easily have me beat, so I'm just going to call here and fold to a large bet. I do not want to make a large raise here, as it will only be called by a hand that beats me. It also opens up the opportunity for the opps to bluff (another thing I don't want to have happen since my hand does have showdown value). If I call and the opp shoves, then I can muck, but by making a large overbet, I need to call their shove due to how few chips it is in comparison to the pot. The key here is to muck marginal hands preflop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                Hi JWK24,

                Thanks for the hand analysis.
                Yes, I agree with your advice, I suppose it never good play to limp in, either raise or fold the majority of time, especially at a very loose table, and 78o are just too marginal, even on the button.

                Thanks again,
                spmurphy1

                          Hi spmurphy1 Interesting hand! Let's take a closer look. I actually prefer calling preflop with A10o. You are in position and have a decent, but not great hand. I would have raised with A10s though. Raising can be ok here, but it requires good post flop skills. The flop is good for you since you have a flush and possibly a gutshot straight draw. The villain min-raised. Reraising as you did is nice and aggressive, however your bet size was a bit large. The standard is 3x the original raise making it 6 cents rather than 8. When you get 3-bet, you need to get concerned, but you did have the odds to call. Nice job. The turn didn't help you and the villain was kind enough to only make a small bet. You had the odds to call again. Well done. Unfortunately the river doesn't give you a flush. So, folding was your only option. You played the hand pretty well. Keep at it! GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
