        Ok will do.

        It'll take some time though to get on the live training because of time zone, but I'll do my best.

          Hi Nosmin!

          Since the timing doesn't work for your time zone, here's a recording of one that you can watch.

            Preflop I might have done it wrong. But he had only 51 chips so I figure I'll just call. Also button raised and I called no idea why maybe I thought I already have 51 chips in the pot. On the flop I have top kicker and a chance to get the flush. So 9 outs if I dont count the kings. Got odds of 5.2:1 but pot odds are 9:1 but I raised to get more value. On the turn an ace dropped and I wasnt going to fold even if someone all in. Got a chance to make the flush and the straight. Got the 9s on river and all was good! Hmm I think I should have folded my hole cards pre flop. Anyway tell me what you think. Im weak on outs/odds so not sure if I got that right. Also 8/9 players, sorry about that but in play money they just tends to all in preflop and it is hard to play a decent hand. Edit: I'll Check the youtube video thanks!

                Hi Nosmin! With K3s from UTG+1, I get a short-stack shove from UTG. While my cards are suited, K3s is not a good hand and there are6 opps left to act. Due to this, I need to muck this preflop. When playing out of position, I need to stick to much stronger hands due to my positional disadvantage. Playing marginal-at-best hands from out of position will cost me a large number of chips in the long run. When one of the opps with position on me raises, I'm definitely mucking preflop. When playing NLHE, I want to be playing hands where I have the correct odds, not just to be calling bets to chase. Not mucking marginal hands, especially when opps are raising, will cost me a large amount of money in the long run. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                        Hi Nosmin!

                        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 only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables 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.

                        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 analyze them for you.

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

                        Please let me know when you receive the buy-in and attend the training session.
