              Hi Naty Jerbi! With Q5s on the button, I get everyone limping in front of me. While I'd normally like to raise to try to eliminate some of the opps, which would make playing post-flop easier, my hand isn't strong enough to do so, so I'll call and see the flop in position. My plan for the flop will be that if I hit it, I'll bet and if I miss and it checks to me on the button I'll bet. I totally miss, but when they all check to me, here is my one shot to win the pot. Due to the large number of opps, I'll make a pot size bet of 250 here. If anyone raises, I'll fold. If anyone calls, I won't put another chip into the pot unless my hand improves. ------ With AQ in the BB, there are 3 limps, a standard raise, then two calls of the raise. Honestly, being out of position with this much action, I'm mucking this preflop. The raise and calls could easily be from a pair or AK and I'm behind all of those hands. If one of them has AK and I call and see an A on the flop, it's going to be a very costly loss for me. This is a good example of why position is so importand in NLHE, as I'd be very happy to play this hand if I were in position, but with the prior action, I'm not playing it out of position. If I did decide to play it, instead of calling, I'm going to make a pot-sized 3-bet to 1400. If I was in the hand, this is an example of a flop that can be really costly. I have top pair, but could easily be crushed. Unfortunately with this many opps in the hand, I'm really forced to make a pot-sized bet on the flop, but there is even another problem with that. It's over 1/3 of my stack, so I'm really pot-committed. That means that I have 2 options here, shove or fold... and I don't really want to shove when I'm not sure I'm ahead... but then again, I don't really have a choice and will shove here. This is a great example of a hand where position is the key. Even though I have a better than average hand, when out of position, it can cost me a large number of chips playing it due to the positional disadvantage. It worked out in this hand, but in a game with regulars that are competent opponents, it's going to cost me a large number of chips. 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!

                      Hi Naty Jerbi! First hand 1010: Opening with 10s is greatumbup: However, when you get 3-bet, you have to fold. This is one of my "Golden Rules". Never CALL when you get 3-bet and are out of position! Fold all hands except KK and AA. With KK and AA you should 4-bet. Pocket pairs, even as strong as QQ, are tough to play post flop oop. So often overcards come combined with your bad position make calling a major leak. As played, I would not have lead with a bet on the flop. If you are ahead, let the villain make a mistake by betting and then you can check-call or check-raise. Folding as you did was your only option. Good fold. Second hand JJ: This hand differs from the previous hand in that you now have postion on the villain in the sb. Personally, I would have called the 3-bet rather than 4-betting. If the villain is raising light, or bluffing, they will usually fold to your 4-bet. If they have a monster, then they will move all in on you forcing you to fold. As played, you flop top set, but the board is very wet offering likely flush and straight draws. Your c-bet was well sizedumbup: The turn makes a straight even more possible. I would suggest betting larger since this board looks very dangerous. There are so many cards that might give the villain a flush or straight if they don't already have one. Since the pot is so large compared to your remaining stack, I would suggest moving all in and make the villain pay the maximum if chasing. Getting tricky in such a dangeous spot can quickly get you stacked. The river is obviously great for you and you got paid - nice pot Note, the villain over played his hand. Yes, he had a straight, but he was at the low end AND a flush was possible. When the board paired on the river a house was possible as well. Don't spew your stack in such spots if it is you with the low end of a straight. That is why it is called the "idiot" end Final hand AK: I think you played this hand nicelyumbup: Your betsizes were good preflop and on the flop. Both villains checked the flop, so c-betting looks perfect. When the villain leads on the turn, you still don't have a made hand. Folding is your best option. No sence getting involved in a big pot without a made hand. Good foldumbup: GL an have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
