          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.

            Hi pokergeek!

            This looks like a playmoney tournament hand. That's fine, but for the remainder of this promotion, you should play 9-handed ring games where the blinds are fixed.
            Here you have 66 under the gun (UTG) and you're fairly short-stacked on 20bb. A small pocket pair is a good hand to have in late position when you can call a raise and go set-mining, or sometimes raise and steal the blinds, but in early position it's trickier because if you raise, you're likely to get at least one caller (so you'll be out of position) or even get re-raised or shoved on.
            With this stack size and position, I think the best play would be to make a reluctant fold. You're unlikely to have the best hand, and conserving tournament chips is crucial. I'd also fold this hand UTG in a cash game.
            If you do decide to play the hand, then I'd recommend you make a small raise (so you might see a flop cheaply, or could fold to a shove) or you could go directly all in, to maximise "fold equity" and make it less likely that you'll get called. (Stealing the blinds also adds a chunk of chips to your stack).
            The problem with your raise of 5bb is that it pot-commits you. Once you've put in a quarter of your stack, you have to call the shove(s). A big stack took a chance here and called with a ragged ace. You were a big favourite to win against A4, but he got lucky this time.

            Best of luck in the next stage of the promo!
            Cheers,

                  Hi pokergeek201,

                  My apologies, step one requires the poker basics course, and the system will not let you try any others before this one.

                  Your tasks were:
                  1) Watch the 'Getting Started' video
                  2) Post a 'PLAY MONEY' hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer
                  3) Pass the Poker Basic course.

                  Sorry for the inconvenience.

                          Excellent!

                          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.
