        Hello, I have watched video and here is my hand from Play Money Table. It was my third hand at this table and I have been on dealer position so I have raised and re-raised again all in. I’m not sure about betting pattern – if it was correct or not. Some players play “Play Money Tables” very crazy. Villain_6 had 5d 8s. Thank you for your comments. Also, Poker Basic Course looks complete; I did it some time ago. Regards, Mirtech

            Hi Mirtech! With AQ on the button, there are 4 limpers in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise here, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 4 limpers, I'll raise to 7BB or 350. I want to keep all my raises standard so that the opps are constantly guessing as to the cards I'm playing. I'll make the same raise with AA, 77, 22, AK, JTs or anything else that I want to raise with. Betting more with better hands and less with marginal hands is a bet tell that basically turns your cards face up to an observant opponent, something that I do not want to do. There is then 3 calls, a raise and a shove. While AQ is a hand with potential, it is not a made hand and plays much better against only one opponent than it does into a multi-way pot. Without a made hand that is most likely not ahead, let alone the favorite to win the pot, I'm going to muck here and look for a better spot. The keys for this hand are standard bet sizes and that I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm going to lose the majority of the time. 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!

                Hi John,

                Thank you for reviewing my hand. I thought that my betting wasn’t correct after play was over. I’m surprised that you would muck AQ after re-rise from V_6, what looks like stealing (and it was).
                Anyway, thank you again for comments; I will remember that for future.

                Regards,

                Miroslav (Mirtech)

                  Hello,

                  I have watched Bet Sizing video and here is answer fro question:
                  Players may want to make big bets, because
                  - they want to put a lot of pressure on opponents
                  - they want to bluff people off decent hands
                  - they want to gain value from very strong hands
                  - they want to protect against strong draws

                  I have also completed Cash Game quiz.

                  And my worst played hands are below.

                  Regards

                  Miroslav (Mirtech)

                    My AK hands These are my worst played hands. For both I had AK and lost the whole stack to same player. First time to KK and second time to AA. Not sure what I was thinking about that time. Very bad play from my side. I hope this will be helpful for other beginners. Take time to think before putting chips in.

                        Hi Mirtech Wow, you were really unlucky against this opponent. Unfortunately it happens. Hopefully the cards will fall your way next time. There are some things to notice with the hands though. First hand AK: Firstly, I strongly suggest opening with a raise rather than limping. Limping often gets a string of callers making it tough to play post flop. As played the villain makes a larger than normal raise to 10 cents. You 3-bet to 29 cents. This is fine, but looks super strong. The fact that the villain 4-bet will rarely but a very strong hand with KK and AA being most likely. I suggest folding to the 4-bet here unless you had notes on the villain showing him to be very aggressive. AK is a great starting hand, but it is not a made hand yet. As played, with so much already in the pot, once you flop a K you are going to go to the showdown. So, the only problems here were preflop. Second hand AK: The deep stacked villain opens with a 6bb raise from utg. This is much larger than normal again, just like he did last time with KK. Did he always make big raises? If not, then this is an indication that he has a big hand again. (This is why we do not recommend adjusting your bet sizes based on your cards. It becomes an easy tell.) Furthermore, you are in early middle position. There are five people left to act after you. You don't want to call only to be pushed out of the hand by a late position 3-bet. So, even though you have a strong hand, the rest of the situaiton does not look too good. I would suggest playing it safe and folding. Note, if the villain always raised large, then I would rather 3-bet than call here. I would definately fold on the flop. A 10 will give you a straight, but at the moment you do not have a made hand. Try to avoid calling large bets post flop, especially putting you all in, when you do not have a made hand or an extremely strong draw. I hope this helps GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                              Hi Mirtech, The VPP's that count for this is only after the second bonus is received, not the total number of VPP's that you have. We only show that you have just over 10 VPP's TOTAL and all of these are not from only after the second bonus. Please keep playing and when you get ot 10 VPP's for this bonus only, the next one will be released. Keep up the good work! umbup: Joss
