        Hi, Yes this hand can be folded, only under certain circumstances that the table dynamic displays, for instance are the players that are raising all in (tight and passive) or rather not been to active throughout their duration of stay at the table..also let's factor in stack depths..But other than that in a heads up pot this hand is extremely strong versus the majority of players opening ranges and we are only dominated by 2 hands pre-flop AA & KK... Interesting action pre-flop, with 8 of the 9 players being all in it decreases our equity/hand strength in the pot.. Keep in mind this will rarely ever happen at a real money table (unless it is a milestone hand) Please let me know when you have passed the Poker Basic Quiz and we'll advance you to the next stage in you Bank Roll Builder training! Kind regards, CannonLee

          Hello, I have completed the Basics quiz.


          • #6

            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.

              Making a big bet has much advantages:
              - To protect a made hand against drawing Hands
              - To create greater value from opponent when you have the nuts
              - To bluff your opponent fold a better hand

                I beat other players in this hand,But I think I might be wrong when dealing with this hand. --I think I was wrong that I raises $0.08 to $0.26 when UTG1 raises $0.06 to $0.18.Maybe i should call there? --UTG1 call me on the flop ,I thank he didn't hit a monster hands.he maybe has a pair of kings or queens or he only has one outs,and 2% chance to win.I didn't consider the flush or straight draws,I strongly believe that he could not raise with such starting hands on UTG position.

                  Sitting on a 40bb stack depth I would have made the sizing pre-flop 24c and 5bet jam all in when the villain re-raises. This line is entirely dependent on reads..did you have reads on the villain UTG?

                  Post flop, your line is fine as there is the possibility of getting value from AT AJ AQ KK QQ and a range of flush holdings AQs KQs QJs.

                  Please take the cash game quiz and let me know when you have passed it, we'll then advance you to the next stage of you Bank Roll builder training.

                  Kind regards,
