                Hi mtpha27! With AA from UTG+1, I'm going to make my standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 1 limper, I'll raise to 8. By making standard bets, it helps to conceal the strength of my hand. I see a 6-way flop that has a diamond flush draw and an opp makes an abnormally small min-bet (bets after the flop should be based on the size of the pot, not the BB). Due to the large number of opps, I'm going to make a pot-sized raise here to 52 chips, as I'd like to build a pot and have some of the opps fold. I then get re-raised and when it gets to me, I'm going to raise them back and make a standard raise, once again to conceal the strength of my hand. I will size it between 3X the opp's bet (162) and a pot-sized raise (294). With this many opps, I'm going to go for the higher end of this range and raise to 290 in most cases. However, this is well over 1/3 of my chips, which means that I'm pot-committed. This means that if I make this bet, I can never fold. Due to this, I'm going to re-raise all-in! If someone wants to try to outdraw me when I'm pot-committed, I want them to have to put their chips into the pot before they see a card that can beat me. 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! flophitter umbup:
