                    Hi again, first session on the tables is over (still have 97 cents left) I played a 100 hands and saw the flop around 17% Is that too tight or what? Only had a few decent starting hands. Have a few hands i would like some comments on. The first one, is actually the first hand at the table, so no reads on any of the players. i paid the tablefee so i automatic called the big blind, and then the flop gives me top pair with king kicker, so i bet, i should have bet more than just 0,02 right? More like the 0,07c in the pot or? Anyway the turn is the 9, and i bet a small amount, he calls and the king on the river gives me the top two pair so i bet again. How would you have played this hand? Second hand is about how to play the small pairs: Starting hand is a pair of 7. The flop is two overcards, among them a king, so i fold when an early player bets, i'm thinking he has K,x. Ain't that a correct fold on a small pair with two overcards on the board? Freebu

                      Hi, Just a reminder, through out time posting the big blind + small blind to get dealt in will add up I'd suggest waiting for the big blind. Yes, you should have bet more than 2c, I'd make a sizing of full pot on the flop as it's a draw heavy board to a flush or straight and we can get value from worse Tx or possibly 9x. On the turn, I'd make a sizing of 2/3 pot for pure value..68, 78, J8, QJ, KJ and flush combos will call Tx might raise aswell 9x. The river, this is a very tricky spot..facing a check min raise..their line looks convincing..this is a bet/fold situation..even though it's just another 20c to call..we need to think what could they be raising with that has us beat? what do you we beat? If they had a Tx would they raise the flop or turn..possibly.. but we are read less of their tendencies..What range did you put them on? In late position, if we are to decide that the hand is playable..it should be opened for a 3x raise and this hand is certainly qualifies. It will get the initiative in the pot and we will most likely have position versus the blinds. This is a fit or fold hand..rarely ever will we feel comfortable betting this hand for value when over cards come..we are looking to spike a set(3 of a kind) or flop some equity to a straight draw and potentially win a monster pot! Hope this helps. CannonLee

                        Yes thanks that helps!

                        As to what i was thinking he had, in the first hand. I definitely wasn't thinking he had a 9x because he just called at the turn instead of reraising. Atleast thats what i would have done to protect my set from a straight or flush on the river.

                        And yes i should have 3x raised with the pair of 7's.

                        Again thanks for the answers, i will post more hands when i hit the tables again tomorrow.

                          New hand, lets just say i got a bit lucky! :P I get a pair of aces and 5 bets ,(3bet + 2*callers) and gets called by one player. The flop is quite good for me, and i bet, he then reraises, and i'm thinking he has some kind of draw or a high pair, probably a high pair since i doubt he would have reraised with a straigth draw. (i allways forget the set...) The turn is the 5, and since i doubt he is on a draw, because of the reraise, i bet all in and he calls. So how would you have played that pair of aces. I know you need to be careful not to fall in love with you starting hand preflop. So would you have folded when he reraised after the flop? (A tight table, but he's a relativ new player at the table) Freebu

                            Hi, With so many limpers ahead of us..I'd make my pre-flop raise size 12c to 15c (3x the big blind +1bb for each limper) Yes the flop is perfect for our hand! But is this flop good for the villain in seat 9? On such a low dry flop texture..We need to ask our self, what range of hands are they limp calling my raise with? what range of hands could they have that might hit this flop texture? How much should I bet to extract value from a weaker range of hands? And all of these questions should be based on reads/tendencies of previously played hands versus that villain. When the villain min raises your continuation bet..we can take two lines, 1.) re-raise them to $1 to $1.20 or 2.) flat call their raise like you did..our hand is strong enough on that board texture to not be afraid of straight draws considering the pre-flop action as the combos of 97 47 57 are a very unlikely range for the villain to be holding. On the turn we can bet 2/3 to half pot as to not scare of weaker over pairs or the occasional stubborn ace/king high call down. Nice pot! Please take the Cash Game Quiz >>click here<< and let me know when you have passed it and we'll advance you to the next stage of your training with a 2nd real money buy-in! Kind regards, CannonLee

                              Thanks for the reply!

                              I have taken and passed the cash game quiz.

                              By the way, am i allowed to use the cash that i win, (i started with the 2$ that i got from you, and now i'm on 3$ total, so 1$ in winnings) on micro buy-in tournaments? If not i'm totally okay with it and i will follow this course to the end on the micro tables! :P
