        Using the hand replayer I raise to 4BBs preflop, (im in big blind) and get one caller. I hit the nut straight on the flop and was not sure on whether the bet sizes were proper or not. Should I have bet more or less, considering he called my raise of 4BBs, or should I have slowplayed it? Thanks

          Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.

          He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

          Cheers.

            Hi atilla dhun! 910s is best played as a speculative hand. This means we want to see the flop cheap with many opponents. We only want to start betting to build the pot after we have a strong draw to a flush or straight. It is not strong enough to bet for value on its own since you won't hit a flush/straight all that often. When you do though, you will often win a big pot. So, preflop I strongly suggest just checking. Speculative hands include smaller pocket pairs, suited connectors and Axs. None of these hands are strong on their own, but all have the potential to make monster hands. Fold when you miss the flop and keep betting for value when you hit or get a strong draw. You flopped the nuts Now you want to extract as much value from the opponents as possible. Never slowplay on play money or 2NL tables! People tend to call lightly. Just keep betting for value and take them to valuetown! Here I suggest betting half the pot on the flop as you did. Once you get called, I would bet between 50% and 75% of the pot on the turn and again on the river. Aside from raising preflop, great job with the handumbup: Keep it up! GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                      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.

                      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.

                        3 reasons for betting big

                        reasons for a big bet: to put people off strong draws on a scary board, to put pressure on opponents, and to bluff people off okayish hands, which would have otherwise beaten us had we not bet big to scare them off.

                          Hand replayer I raise preflop to 3.5BB, and get one caller. I bet big on flop, turn and river, after opponent checks to me every time. I put him on a weakish hand, maybe 2nd pair high kicker, top pair low kicker or maybe just a draw. Should I have made the final bet after he checked to me, or what should have I done differently? Cheers

                            Hi, Hand Analysis This is hand is certainly strong enough to be opening from late position, although if we where to get raised I'd muck this hand as there are very few combos of Ax that we beat and the majority of that range we will be splitting with on most board textures (if we pair the A). Also there is a possibility of us being out kicked. This hand plays well in multi way pots, we are primarily playing this hand for a flush (fit or fold). I'd make my pre-flop raise sizing just a tad smaller, the standard 3x sizing is ideal. Post flop, It's safe to check back this board in the hopes of turning equity or pairing our ace. On the flop we had only 3 solid outs to pair our ace (6% equity) verus any range of Kx or Qx. There could be some flush combos in the villains range but given the fact that they called from the SB .. I think their range on this flop would lean a lot more towards KT KJ KQ QT QJ 33. The turn gives us some more equity but it's a marginal spot to be barreling or in this case semi-bluffing to a broadway draw with no pair, so I'd shut down and check back the turn as well on the river to save bets for a good value hand. Hope this helps. Please let me know when you have passed the Cash Game Quiz and i will advance you to the next stage of your training. Kind regards, CannonLee
