      You are eligible for the Bank Roll Builder promo!umbup: The next thing that you will need to do is to attend one of the 'Getting Started With Pokerstars' live training sessions. Please let me know after you have attended this session. Also, you can be practicing on the play money NL ring tables and please post a hand that you were not sure about, using the hand replayer. Here's a short video on how to use the Hand Replayer

          Such hand I've played. Should I bet on the flop after 3 checks? And how to play on the turn?

            Did you find the Live Training Session helpful? Is there anything that you would like to discuss?

            Your pre-flop raise sizing is ok and to make things that much sweeter on the button with QQ, I'd make it a bit bigger and raise it up 4x the big blind +1bb for each limper(1500 to 1800) to build a pot and thin the field down.

            On the flop, we have the initiative and in position, a continuation bet is perfect, I'd make it about 1/2 pot for pot control just in case we get looked up with a weak Ax or Kx and to maybe get thin value from a range of Jx or Tx.

            On the turn, there are 2 lines we can take:
            1.) Bet a little less than half pot to maybe get a range of Kx or Jx to fold.

            2.) check back the turn and re-evaluate the river.

            If we bet the turn just half pot, almost half of our stack is now committed, the stack to pot ratio is no ready for the villain to jam the river and there is a good chance we can be beat.

            If we check back the turn, it helps keep the pot small as there are 2 over cards present just in case we decide to call a river bet without committing our stack.



            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 9-Max 0.01/0.02 NLHE as your training is focused primarily on this game format. If you encounter any difficult situations, post a hand replay here in your thread and we'll analyze it for you!

            Best of luck to you at the tables.
