            Hi teawithafee! With 38s from the BB, I'm more than happy to see a free flop, as it's definitely not a strong enough hand to call a raise with. I flop 2nd pair and when it checks to me, I can go about this one two ways. I can either check and call a small bet if either opp left to act bets and fold to a sizable bet OR I can make a value bet. If I make the value bet, then I need to size it based off of the size of the pot, the board texture and the number of opps in the hand. With 3 opps and a possible flush draw, I need to bet 3/4 pot (600). I don't want to bet less than this, because then the opps will be getting the correct odds to try to outdraw me and I also do not get any real information on what they may have. The turn is a total blank and if the opps had called a sizable bet by me on the flop, then I'm going to check here, as one of them most likely has a Q or 8 with better kicker and is ahead of me. Once again, if I did bet (which I would not), my bet would need to be standard for the situation to help to conceal the strength of my hand. In this situation, with 2 opps, I'd need to bet 2/3 the size of the pot (933). Many players vary their bets based on how strong their hand is, and this is a clear tell that turns that player's cards face-up.... something that I do not want to do. I always want to keep the opps guessing as to what I have. On the river, a standard bet for 1 opp is 1/2 pot. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

              Brilliant teawithafee! 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!umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Hi teawithafee! I'll take a look at this hand.
                  You have QQ on the button, facing a limp. I'd make a standard raise here, which would be 3bb + 1bb for the limper, totalling 4bb (8c). Since villain limped, he is unlikely to have a big hand. When you make it 12c, a weak hand is unlikely to call, so you miss some value. With QQ, you want to win more than the 5c that's in the middle, so a sizing of 8c is the happy medium that starts building a pot, but isn't so big as to make villains fold.
                  Here, something odd happens. The player that limped UTG re-raises to 22c. If he was deep-stacked, I'd feel quite sick here, because the limp-reraise play is a trick that some players (usually bad players) utilize when they have aces or kings. If both you and villain had full 100bb stacks, I'd actually fold here, because I'll be getting it in bad against KK+ almost always. Since villain is short-stacked, he's more likely to be getting cute with random junk and smaller pairs than yours. Especially since you've already put 12c in the middle, I think stacking off is the only reasonable play.
                  Notice that your oversized open-raise to 12c essentially committed you to getting all in. If you'd used a more standard size, it's easier to fold if you get reraised and feel you are beat, or if you see a flop and it comes AKx. Don't make big bets until you're sure you have the near nuts.

                  The hand replayer doesn't show what hand villain had, but if it was KK/AA, as I suspect, then I hope you learned your lesson. Always watch out for the limp-reraise trick. If you make a standard raise to 8c versus a limper and he comes back over the top, folding QQ is the right play.

                  Hope this helps!
                  Cheers,
                  Arty

                            Hi teawithafee!

                            It's 10VPP AFTER the 2nd bonus, which was less than 20 minutes ago. It has to be 10 VPP after this only and the ones that you've accumulated before this don't count.
