              Hi Fckhai! With KK, I'm going to make a standard preflop open-raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Since there are 3 limpers, I'll raise to 6BB or 300. I want to keep all of my raises standard, so that the opps do not get a tell on how strong my hand is. I then have an opp shove and a call of the shove. I'd like to be able to see that there isn't an ace on the board, but with the second best starting hand in NLHE, I'm absolutely calling here. With KK or any other big made hand, the more opps that are in a hand, the higher % of the time I'm going to get beat, so I'd like to be in hands that only have 1 opp if I can. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    Excited I have read through the instructions and will complete one of the tasks asked here: 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet include trying to put pressure on opponents, to bluff people of decent hands and to gain value from strong hands. Will try to complete the other 2 tasks soon and post update asap.umbup:

                          Hi Fckhai! I'll take a look at this AA hand.

                          It's always nice to get aces when there's some action in front of you, because you can raise for value, expecting to get called by worse hands. Here, there's a minraise to 4c. I'd prefer your 3-bet to be a little larger, so you make more money when you're ahead, and also make it too pricey for random hands to enter the pot and crack your aces. When you're in position, it's fairly standard to multiply the original raise by 3, so 12c would be good here. 10c is OK though, but you get called in 2 spots, so your hand is more vulnerable.
                          The flop comes 866 with a flush draw. This flop is fairly dry, as the only hands that really like it are those containing a 6 for trips, an 8 for a medium pair, overpairs like 99-JJ, and a few suited connectors that may have flush/straight draws.
                          Weirdly, the small blind mindonks 2c into 33c. This pathetic bet is either a very weak hand or draw, trying to keep the pot small, or it's a trap being set by a player with trips. Most of the time, your aces are good here, so I definitely like a raise, but I think you made it too big. A competent villain knows you 3-bet pre-flop, so he should put you on an overpair quite often. If he just has a pair of 8s, he's probably folding to your big raise. You don't want 8x (or draws) to fold, so you want to choose a size that gets value from these hands. I'd go with something like 25c.
                          If you've noted that this villain isn't competent, however, and will spazz out with various bluffs and weak hands, then the large raise is a great way to get some fat value.
                          So you make it 48c, and villain re-raises to 94c, more or less putting you all in. Without a read, I'd sometimes fold here, because villain's actions are screaming "I have at least trips, and sometimes I have a full house with 88 or 86. Occasionally I have quads".
                          The problem is, because your first flop raise was so big, you are now committed to stacking off. You started the hand with $1.10 and now 58c of that is in the middle. You've gone beyond the commitment threshold (33% of your stack) so you pretty much have to shove all in here, and pray that villain doesn't have you beat.
                          Somewhat shockingly to me, villain shows J9o! All he had on the flop was jack high, needing running cards to make a straight/flush or two pair+ to beat you. This bluff by the villain is terrible. It might have worked against a tight player (like me) if the pot wasn't already so big, bu when you've already made a big raise on the flop, he should know that you're never folding.
                          I hope you made a note on this villain that he makes big bluffs with total air, because you'll be able to win lots of money from him if you see him around.

                          That hand was a nice boost to your bankroll, but be a little more careful in future with your betsizes. When you're pretty sure you have the best hand, choose a size that is the most you think a worse hand can call. Here was a dream situation, because villain didn't just call your big raise with a (much) worse hand, he went all in! In future, a big raise like that will often mean your hand is not so good after all.

                          Hope this helps!
                          Cheers,
                          Arty

                              Thank you so much for the analysis and it opened my eyes to even playing As which i always thought was pretty straight forward. Will keep all the little tips with me for sure. Well i've only got the cash game quiz to complete now but for some reason it keeps saying ive just recently completed a quiz and to try back again later. As far as i know ive only completed the basics quiz but i cant get on to the cash game quiz. What am i missing here? Advice? On a brighter note i seem to be doing quite well on the NLHE full ring 1&2c games. My bankroll is up to $14 from the initial $2 and ive been playing very tight. Really enjoy reading the analysis of pokerhands even from other players posts and i think its been helping. umbup:
