        Hello, I've finally passed the Basic Course. My main difficulty was regarding the objectivity betwin a made hand and a hand with many outs. I figured a made hand of a pair was stronger than a flush strait draw. This view seems to condition my game sometimes from being aggressive to passive afraid of the outs. It's seems so much easier to be more aggressive when connected at the flop. This hand that I post happened after I've noticed that my enemies were a bit imune to raises of 3 to 5 times the BB or Half, 3/4 or full pot bets. My objective on the flop was to eliminate as many players I could from a flush draw without much regard from who stayed in or not. I'm concious that it might not been a good play, but I'd like your opinion regarding entering the flop (in medium position) with figure and a low card (seems to happen alot of times to me). Thank you and regards, SrPickwick

            Hi SrPickwick Your comment regarding a made hand vs outs is actually relavant in your hand. Preflop your hand is not strong. So, checking is by far your best optionumbup: You flop top pair. Notice though you have a weak kicker. Now the board offers a straight and flush draw possibilities. This is important! You do not want the chasers to fold. You want to bet enough that they are making a mathematical mistake by continuing with the hand. Normally, if you bet about 70% of the pot this is enough. They will normally make their draw about 1 out of 3 times. If they are paying more than 33% of the pot to continue, then you will be making money over time. You want the chasers to chase because you will make money off them the two out of three times they miss their draw. Moreover, chasers don't easily fold in playmoney or 2NL games. Let them make the mistake of chasing with poor odds and you will make money off them over time. When the flush/straight card comes on the turn or river, don't pay them off. Keep the pot small if you can, if not just fold. Learn this concept and you will be printing money at 2NL On the flop in this hand, don't overbet. It becomes obvious what you have. Just bet 70% of the pot as above. This will build the pot for you without it getting out of control. You dont want to invest your entire stack in a mediocre hand. You have a pair, but weak kicker. A better pair is always possible, a set etc. Keep the pot small with small hands and build it when you have a set or better yourself. I hope this helps! GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                Hi!

                I've passed the Cash Game Course at first attempt. Unfortunately I've also managed to loose the 2$ first bonus...
                I'm using ipad for the moment so I can't connect to hand replayer. I'll post my hands ASAP.

                @ Roland - I understand completely... However I feel like I haven't learned a thing, since I lost the first part of the bonus while falling in love with my cards and then... Bam! The opponent had a stronger hand.

                Nevertheless I had a good time, thanks PSO! and perhaps next time I'll believe a bit more in what my opponents try to tell me with their bets. It seems I start fantasizing that my opps start to bluff me or are dumber... Then they are. And also, it's a bit hard to back off when I've already invested big in to the pot

                    Hi, I'm working my way to earn those 10VPP. Thanks for everything so far. I'd like to ask some advice in this hand. It's pretty straight forward. I had JJ playing on MP. I didn't know much about vilain. Thanks in advance! SrPickwick EDIT: I placed him on AK or KK, and tried to turn a set, but gave up after. I find a bit hard to calculate the pot and the implied odds. I'm mostly going by heart, but studying on free time.

                          Hi Pickwick!

                          You have JJ in MP and there's a raise by the player UTG. You should know that villain's will typically only raise UTG with a very tight (i.e. strong) range of hands like 99+, AK and AQs. The first point to notice is that JJ is not ahead of that range. It's roughly flipping with it. You're beating TT/99 and AK/AQ, but way behind QQ+. The second point to notice is that when you 3-bet vs UTG, he will fold the hands you beat, and only continue with hands that either have you crushed (QQ+) or have a good chance to out-flop you (AK). Villain will usually 4-bet with KK+ and AK, and call with QQ-JJ. Sometimes he'll call with TT and 99 if another player enters the pot.
                          In effect, your raise gets no value from worse (because worse hands fold), and manipulates villain's range to hands that have you in bad shape. For that reason, the standard play with JJ when faced by an UTG oprn is to call and go set-mining.
                          As played, your 3-bet is cold-called by the BB, and UTG also calls. The flop comes A52, which is a bad flop for you. If either villain has AQ or AK, you were flipping with them pre-flop, but now you're crushed.
                          The BB donks out. I can't see him ever doing this as a bluff, because villains tend to play very honestly in multiway pots. In short, he's got an ace or better.
                          UTG folds, so he probably had KK-TT.
                          You should fold here too. Not only do you only have an underpair, but you only have 2 outs to improve. You simply don't have the right odds to call a half pot bet when you have 2 outs. Generally speaking, you should fold on the flop when you have anything less than top pair or an 8-out draw. With middle pair and 2 outs, fold at the first opportunity.

                          Hope this helps!
                          Cheers,

                            Thanks Arty, Allways helpful! I've got a lot to learn and then some more. Would you mind talking to me about this fold I did? I'm SB with AQo and Button - 1 raised. I folded using the advices found on the tabble of the 3rd course. It intrigs me alot, why wouldn't I just call it there if the raise is a 3xBB, because I think it's a strong hand specially against LP. thank you and cheers, Pw
