            Hi DTail3r! There are a few key points with this hand. Firstly, when you first sit down at the table, don't pay the big blind early! Just wait until the big blind comes around to you. Use this time to study how your opponents play. Who is playing a lot of hands, who is being careful, etc. Pay special attention to the players to your right and left at the table. This is extremely important when you get to real money games. Even though it is only 2 cents, it adds up over time. Now, in this hand you have A8s in midposition. I would actually suggest folding even if the hand had folded around to you. A8s is good to open with from late postion, but not from middle or early. Too often you will run into an opponent holding an A with a better kicker. In this spot, you are facing an all in from early position. As a general rule, never call an all in preflop unless you have spesifically AA or KK. Even hands as strong as AK or QQ tend to lose money over time in these spots. The risk is just not worth the reward to make calling an all in like this. With that being said, you won a nice pot I suggest you focus on being patient and waiting for good hands, especially from late postion. Most winning players are only playing 1 or 2 hands each orbit on average. GL and have fun at the tables!

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:
