        I just sat down at this table and played a couple hands, then this one came up. I raised 4x BB to try to thin out the field, but everyone called... The flop showed all small cards and it gave me an open-ended straight draw. I felt that it was a very good flop. So I bet the pot. Still a few callers. The turn showed another small card but 2 clubs. At this point, there are too many possibilities. Some may be on a flush draw. Some Ax hitting the small card. Or even over pair? I don't know. But I still had the OESD, so I thought I still had a chance to win this pot. With that in mind, I was not going to fold, so I went all-in. Could I have done anything to avoid losing my stack? Thanks!

              Hi TangentZ! With 99 from UTG, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper (the poster counts as a limp). Due to this, I have 1 limper, so I will bet 4BB or 8 chips. I flop an overpair with an OESD and get an opp making an abnormally small bet of 2. Bets post-flop should be based on the size of the pot, so this is really, really small. With my hand and the large number of opps left, I'm going to make a pot-sized raise to 77 chips here. The turn is a blank and the same opp makes another odd min bet. However, this time I don't have enough chips to price out anyone that is drawing. Due to this, I'm just going to call and hope to see a cheap river card and then re-evaluate on the river. The reason for this is that if I can't bet enough to price out the opp and make it a bad play for them to draw, then if I bet less, I'm giving THEM chips on average by betting... something I'd rather not do. Also, I don't want to be all-in when I could easily not have the best hand, which could be the case here, as someone could either have already hit a straight, set or two pair. 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:

                  Thanks! I think I understand the need to slow down when my stack is too small to price out the villain(s).

                    Here is another hand that I lost my stack to. I've been playing at this table for several orbits. The players are generally loose and passive. Villain limped and there was a 3xBB raiser and a caller. I had AA and reraised 4x that. Everyone called. Should I have made the bet bigger? Flop seemed "safe". Villain made an extra big bet. I didn't believe he had the straight, maybe a flush draw. So I called. Was this a mistake? Thanks!

                      The system won't let me take the Cash Game Quiz. It says I have passed a quiz recently. I passed the Poker Basics a week ago and didn't take any other test. Please help!

                        I know I probably shouldn't have called the bet on the flop, but the turn gave me two pairs and flush draw. Villain made a bet and I pushed all in. Was this a bad move? I thought the villain had a pair of Aces and I truly believed I was the favorite to win. Even if I was behind, I had very many outs. I've lost so many hands when I was the clear favorite.

                              Hi TangentZ Try not to sweat this one, you played the hand well and were a bit unlucky. Preflop you played nicely by 3-betting. Your bet size was great. Getting called by two is not a great result though. You have an overpair to the board and the villain shoves. If he had a straight, it is unlikely that he would have bet so much. Moreover, you do not have much behind compared to the pot. Calling is correct in this spot. You were ahead, but the villain drew out on you. It happens unfortunatley. Note, if you had a deeper stack say equal to the villains, then we need to consider folding to the shove. You are likely to be ahead still, but it is a very large risk with "just a pair". I would prefer to have a read on the villain before making an all in call. Against an unknown, I normally recommend playing it safe and folding. In this particular hand, as I said, you were priced in since you didn't have that deep of a stack. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
