              Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.

              He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

              Cheers.

                  Hi winningwayz1! The first tip that I'd recommend is that when you sit down at a ring table is to wait for the BB. Paying extra BB's will be a very large drain to your bankroll over time. With J5s, while I'd like to fold, since I'm already in the pot by posting, I'll check and hope to see the flop for free. If anyone raises, I'm definitely mucking. I flop both a flush and a gutshot straight draw. When it's checked to me, I'm going to check here. I don't want to make a larger bet because of two things. First, even if I hit my draws, I won't have the nuts. Secondly, if all the opps muck except one or 2 here, by betting this large, I'm giving myself the WRONG odds to try to draw. It means that I will expect to lose chips on average by making this bet, instead of gaining chips. I want to be putting my chips into pots where I expect to win chips. The turn gives me the flush and when the opp checks to me, I'll make a 1/2 pot value bet (1150). When I get raised, I'm going to call. The river is another diamond and when the opp checks to me, I'm going to check behind and go to showdown. My hand does have showdown value (2nd nuts) but I don't want the opp to have an opportunity to check/raise me (where I'd have to fold). Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                          Brilliant! You've done all 3 tasks and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job! Step Two Use your first buy-in to only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Post one hand that you had difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze it for you. Please watch the following video and answer the question below. List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet? Then study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this. So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus. 1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer. 2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it. 3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz. Let us know as soon as you have all 3 tasks complete and we will award you with your next buy-in. Best of Luck! Raiser umbup:

                            Replayed hand on cash table for analyzing I'm not sure, but I think I should of called before the flop instead of raising, but the villan had been a bit gun hoe for a few hands before that ( which was proved in the end) so I thought this was an alright move. What do you think?
