          Hi SeekingPots! With pocket 10's, there are two limps, then a HUGE overbet shove. My decision here will be based on my read of the opp. If they are shoving everything and playing very loose, I will call. If the opp is playing tighter, then I'll muck as I will be up against either 2 overcards (a coin flip) or be totally dominated. Pocket 10's is a made hand, but I have to remember that it plays much worse in a multi-way pot, so also, if I know that any of the opps behind me to act are going to shove anything, I also need to muck. 10's is a made hand, but it is very, very marginal in a multi-way pot. In the overwhelming majority of cases, I'm going to muck the pocket 10's preflop here. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

              Here's another hand I played... I'm sure I could have won more with this one. My bet on the turn scared everyone away =/ should I have veered away from a ~75% pot bet here? (with so many in the pot) ...or be happy someone didn't suck out on me? thanks If the table actually played poker preflop I probably would never have played this hand, but these play tables are very limp or fold PF =/

                    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:
