          What do you think about this hand?

            Hi iliecosmin52! With AQo from the SB, I get a limp, min-raise and 3-calls. I'm going to 3-bet here since I'm out of position and the key will be the sizing of it. My standard 3-bet range is to between 3X the previous bet (60) and a pot-sized raise (125). With 3 callers of a raise already, I'll opt for the top end of this range and raise to 125. I want to raise to try to get some of the opps to fold and to also get the initiative in the hand since I have the largest positional disadvantage of everyone at the table. I flop top pair/top kicker and I need to make a value bet here. Bets post-flop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 6 opps and a possible flush draw available, the best I can do is to make a pot-sized raise and hope to get less than 4 callers... if I do get more (or bet less), then the opps will be getting the correct odds to draw to the flush (something I want to avoid if at all possible). I need to do the same thing on the turn. With 4 opps, I need to make another pot-sized value bet (290). I don't want to bet less, as if I do and an opp hits a flush against me, it's my own fault that I lose the hand because I gave the opp a positive play to beat me. The river gives me trip Q and I'm going to make another value bet here and I will size this bet at whatever I think the opps will call. Normally I'll size it at 1/2 pot or just under 1/2 pot. I want the opps to call so that I get value for my hand. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

              Brilliant iliecosmin52! 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!umbup: John (JWK24)
