        Max Yield Here is a hand I played. What i would like to know is this. I think I was dealt a strong hand - which should bring more yeild. I was trying to raise less than he did so that others would have not folded. When the raise came i anly called so at least one or two would stay. But nobody did. Should i go hall-in here or not?

            Hi sebenc! With AQ on the button, when it gets to me, I'm going to make a standard opening raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 5 limpers, I'll raise to 8BB or 16 chips. I want to do this to get value for my hand and to try to eliminate some of the opps, as AQ plays much better against fewer opps. The flop misses me, but with this many opps, probably hit at least one of them. This is a good example of why I want to raise preflop, as opps that could have hit this board should fold to the preflop raise. There is an abnormally small min-bet that is called by two opps. If the bet was a standard bet for this type of board with this many opps (pot-sized), then I'd muck... BUT... with the bet being so samll, I'll call behind and hope to get an A or Q on the turn. I hit an A on the turn and when it folds to me, I'll make a pot-sized bet of 28 chips. I could bet less (even down to 1/2 pot if there was only one opp), but due to the large number of opps, I need to bet this much or the opps will be getting the correct odds to try to outdraw me. If I bet small and someone hits a straight or flush on the river, it's my own fault that I'll lose the hand, because I didn't bet enough to give the opp the wrong odds to draw. The river misses me and when it checks to me with only two opps, I'll make my standard value bet for having 2 opps of 2/3 pot (27 chips). By making standard bets, I will be able to get more equity for my good hands and will keep the opps guessing as to the cards that I'm playing. 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! flophitter umbup:

                  Weird hand Hello i am posting this weir hand which was checked until the river. I connecte to a pair and three of a kind on a river. It was fairly obvious i got sixes... Would the low bet be better here? to tempt someone else into the showdown?

                        Hi Sebenc! I'll take a look at these two hands and see if I can find ways to improve your play.

                        1. Normally, 65o is not a playable hand. I'd fold it all the time. But you're in the BB and can see a free flop. Despite the pot being multiway, it seems no one connected with the board, so it goes check-check all the way to the river, where you make trips. This is a funny spot, because when you bet, it can actually look like you're taking a stab at what we call an "orphan pot". Since your bet can look like a bluff, you may get called by someone with a "bluff catcher"; a hand like A3 (bottom pair) or even ace high. I'd probably make a smaller bet, in the hope someone will call with a worse hand, but it's not a big mistake to bet bigger, because although it means you're less likely to be looked up, you win a bigger pot when they do. A smaller bet might also be better on the off chance hat someone has a 6 with a better kicker, with a hand like A6s. They would probably raise, and then you'd be losing more. So a bet of 8c is probably better on the whole, but 12c is fine.

                        2. This looks like you're back on the play money tables, but you should be playing real money cash games for the rest of this promotion. I'll look at this hand anyway. Your call pre-flop with 66 is fine. You're going set-mining. If you make a set of trips, that's great. You can bet and raise, trying to win a big pot with your big hand. If you miss the flop, don't put in another chip.
                        Here you make your set on Q96 and it's checked to you. You decide to go all in for 3300 when the pot is only 1200. This big overbet is usually a mistake. It's very hard for anyone to call such a big bet unless they have a hand that beats yours, or has a very strong draw that could suck out quite often. A better bet size would be about 3/4 of pot. This would be a "value bet" that gets called by worse hands/draws, and would mean you could shove on safe turn cards. Two villains also go all in, and it's good to see you have the best hand, but it is vulnerable to both flush and straight draws. JT gets there on the turn, but that hand only had 8 outs. It shouldn't have been calling after your big overbet, as it didn't have a good price.
                        On the real money tables, you won't get called by such weak hands, but you still want to get value from them, so make a bet that is big, but not more than the size of the pot. You want them to call (to give your hand value), even though they don't have good odds to do so.

                        Hope this helps!
                        Cheers,
