        Bank Roll Promotion Hand Question First, am I being too passive by just calling pre-flop with suited JQ in late position? Second, I thought this was pretty much a perfect flop for me (flush and straigt draws). Once the heart comes on the turn, should I have known to fold based on the quick all-in by the other player? Is there a reasonable thought process to get away from this hand?

              Hi 7regniw! With QJs from the hijack, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper, if I'm going to play the hand. I'm doing this to try to lessen the field and maybe get the two opps with position on me to fold. If I limp, then I'll have to play the hand out of position, as they're getting too good of odds to fold. Therefore, I'll raise to 6BB or 120. I flop 15 outs to a straight or flush and have an opp bet 80 that is called. Here, I want to call and not raise. I have a hand with great potential, but I only have Q high. By raising to almost the size of the pot, I'm acually giving myself the wrong odds to try to draw... something I don't want to do. I want to be making plays where I expect to gain chips, not lose chips. My 15 outs are worth 30% equity to the turn (from the rule of 4 and 2).... so I don't want to put over 30% into the pot or I will expect to LOSE chips from the bet. The turn is good news/bad news. Yes, I have the 3rd highest possbile flush, but with a pair on the board, I can also be beat by quads or a full house, let alone a higher flush. To call, I need to put 810 into a pot that will be 2750 (29.5%)... this means that I need to be ahead 29.5% of the time for the play to breakeven. Whether I call or not will be based on my read of the opp. If the opp is playing extremely tight, then I'm mucking, as they'll have a better flush, full house or quads. If the opp is playing loose and like a maniac, then I'm calling here, as I'll be ahead of more of their possible hands. The key will be my read on the opp. 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.

                Best of Luck!

                  $.01/$.02 Question Hi, I played this hand, but wasn't comfortable with my decisions. This table seemed to be very passive, so I decided to be more aggresive. First, raising from early middle position with AQ. Is that a strong enough had from that position to play and should I have made a larger bet with so many people still to act behind? What about making the call on the re-raise? Second, on the flop I hit second pair. I decided to make a contiuation bet and stay aggresive, but wasn't sure how big to make it in this situation. I wanted to induce a fold and to be honest wasn't sure what I would do next if they called or raised. I am guessing a raise would mean I should fold(?), but if they had called what do I do on the turn. I'm thinking that means a weak Kx since it was a fairly large bet to call with just a draw. Thanks for your help, 7regniw

                    1. To apply pressure to an opponent.
                    2. As a bluff to induce a fold.
                    3. To build a value in the pot for a made hand.

                          Hi 7regniw Thanks for posting your thought process! It helps me to help you better. Note, adjusting your play to fit the table is great - well doneumbup: However, if the table has been passive, you should be giving the 3-bet more credit for being a strong hand. This alone is a strong argument for folding. AQo is good to open with from early mid position and your bet size was standard. However, you get 3-bet by the btn. Calling 3-bets is not recommended when the raiser has position on you. I suggest folding everything except AA and KK and with these hands it is better to 4-bet rather than call. As played, I was happy to see you lead with a bet on the flop. This was a great way to regain the initiative and win the hand. Your bet is a semi-bluff since you do not have top pair. If the villain calls you need to reevaluate on the turn, however I would normally be prepared to fire a new barrel. If the villain raises your bet on the flop or turn, you are beat and should just fold. Keep it up! GL and have fun at the tables§ Roland GTX

                              Poorly played hand... Well, I messed this hand up. I know I should have raised pre-flop being in middle position. I was slow in acting as I have the Starting Hand Guide open to look at as I play and was running out of time to act. Anyway, flop comes and I lead out,am raised and call. Turn comes, bet and fold. Should I have called the turn bet, raise or was the fold the correct thing to do? Thanks for the help.
