        Play Money Full Ring Hand Hi there, I was wondering wether my all in shove from the big blind with AQ offsuit had a positive EV despite what I think is a bad beat in the end. Is the everyone folds blinds equity together with the probability that someone calls me and looses against my AQ not enough too make this a profitable move long term, given I only do this with a tight table image and given I only do it once per table (or again in case I cath a killer hand like pocket kings or aces)?

          Hi,

          Please post only full ring 9-max NLHE hand replays and not tournament hand replays..as your training is focused mainly on real money full ring 9-max NLHE. If you'd like to have this tournament hand analyzed please post it in the NLHE Tournament Hand Analysis forum >>click here<<


          Please let me know when you have passed the Poker Basics Course and the quiz at the end of it..we'll then advance you to the next stage of your training!




          Kind regards,

            Tournament?

            Hi there,
            I am fairly confident this was not a 9 player tournament but a 9 player cash game. I found the table under Holdem then Play Money and then No limit (with full ring only in the filter settings)and not something like sit and go and then play money or smth.

              Tournament

              I think the (playmoney)stakes are just really high because of wrong settings but I am sure that wasnt a tournament. If it is I am sorry (but I kinda dont think so).

                    Hi, Well done on the quiz!umbup: 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! Hand Analysis vs is a classic 60/40 scenario. With all of the limpers, we should be careful of a trap from one of the villains (AA KK QQ). Our line or rather course of action will be decided based on our reads of the villains tendencies at the table, is it a loose dynamic or tight.. Our stack depth is 50bb which is kind of a deep shove without a made hand, I would have raised it 3x the big blind + 1bb for each limper, I think this line will accomplish the same result as raising all in pre-flop in terms of trying to win the pot uncontested. This is certainly a difficult spot as we will be out of position post flop if we get called, unless the table folds around to the small blind..but that is the best case scenario.. It might even be a solid +EV decision to check our option and take a multi way pot with this hand..as a limping range tends to be classified as a weak range, we can maybe extract value that way. I wouldn't classify this hand as a bad beat as we only had a 20% edge versus that range , the villain didn't make the correct call based on their stack depth, hand and pot odds. Hope this helps!umbup: Kind regards, CannonLee

                      Real Money Hand Hi there, This is about the most interesting hand I found (unfortunately I did not play well so I did not play many hands before I lost everything but .23 dollars which isnt enough for a buy in). So, Despite beeing early position just right to the guy under the gun with an ace with pretty bad, yet not extremely horrible kicker, I raised to about 7 big blinds. Everyone folds apart from the small blind I wanted to steal, this villain reraises to 18 big blinds. Since my table image was really loose (rightfully so, I played rather horribly I must admit with a VPIP of around 40%) the guy probably thought my 7BB raise early position had a really weak range, so this guy who I thought was a fish since he had an amazing 60 or so VPIP after not too few hands recorded really made me think about my hand. Since I thought he thought I had nothing I decided to call this reraise (baaaad decision) because I thought he might merely wanted to make me fold my what I thought he thought was a rubbish hand. Then comes the rainbow flop 10 7 2. The villain acts first and raises another 12 BB which I thought was a really low reraise for someone who hit anything or has a really good pocket pair, my instincts told me he was really trying to keep me pot commited with low bets in order to squeeze more money out of me and that he wasnt bluffing. I will never know if my instincts were right since I then decided to fold. After all I had a weak ace high and he could easily have 1. A better ace 2. An ace with a pair 3. A really strong pocket pair from the very beginning. Do you think that given the pot odds I should have stayed now that I had already put so much in, which was due to a bad decision from the moment he reraised me proflop and I called, right?

                        Hi, A4 Sitting on a 30bb stack depth I'd open for the standard sizing of 3 big blinds and fold to any 3 bets that are ahead of me. This hand even though it does have some straight and top pair potential will not fair to well against a range of A9+ and A8 below we will be splitting the pot on most board textures at showdown. Let's not forget that AA KK QQ JJ TT could certainly be in their small blind 3bet range. We also need to factor in the villains tendencies in previously played hands at the table.umbup: When the villain 3bets we can't really cal in this spot as it's such a large % percentage of our stack..I'd prefer to re-raise all in or fold and pick a better spot! Please let me know when you have passed the cash game quiz, also list 3 reasons why players make a big bet. We'll then advance you to the next stage of your Bank Roll Builder training! Kind regards, CannonLee

                          Cash Game quizz + 3 reasons for raising

                          Hi,
                          I have finally passed the cash game quizz (92%)

                          3 Reasons to bet (in no particular order):
                          1.Protect a strong/very strong hand against very strong/monster draws by making the pod odds unfavorable for the villain.
                          2.Bluff your opponent of a better hand, for example on a dry board where likely noone of the few opponents holds anything.
                          3.Value Bet because you are most likely going to win the showdown.

                              Excessive bad fortune Hi, Wow that bonus dissapeared in basically one hand. Of course my flush king high got beaten by a flush ace high. The guy who won is an extreme fish with a vpip percentage of I believe around 60% and a flop fold percentage of I believe around 30% (so he took 70% to the turn) who had beaten me another hand just 2 hands earlier for what was already like 15% of my bankroll with high card ace king kicker against my high card ace jack kicker. Anway here is the hand with the big pot. The guy had an insane vpip. How would I know he would actually have AJ which I knew wasnt suited cause it was obvious he didnt have the flush after the turn. But of course his AceHigh Flush with the ace of diamonds beats my king high...
