          Hand Analysis Even though we are going to be at a positional advantage post flop our stack depth isn't big enough to maneuver as if there are multiple callers behind us the stack to pot ratio will be set up as to were we will be pot committed if any standard bet is made into us (or if we bet). I'd generally fold this hand and be looking to play a stronger range of hands. this hand is going to flop a lot of 2nd pair type of hands on most board textures which will leave us gun shy to bet for value. Over all your post flop line is fine, I like that you checked back the flop for pot control and in hopes to turn the inside straight draw. Also, on the turn and river what range of hands were you trying to get value from? As it's super thin to be betting at 9-max unless the villains dynamic calls for our course of action After all how many combos of Jx have us beat? J7 J8 J9 JT QJ KJ AJ JJ Hope this helps. I have moved your tournament hand to the NLHE Tournament Hand Analysis section, please >>click here<< to view your hand replay. An expert tournament hand analyzer will get to it within the day, please be patient. Please only post full ring 9-max NLHE (real or play money) hand replays in your Bank Roll Builder thread as your training is focused primarily on this game format. Great news! 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! Kind regards, CannonLee

              Hi D0vydelis! I'll take a look at this hand. You're in the small blind with AJs facing 2 limps. Although this is a pretty strong hand, I wouldn't always raise here, because you're in the worst possible position if you see a flop. I'd only raise with the hands that I'd open with UTG, and AJs is not quite strong enough. When out of position (OOP) I'd prefer to keep the pot small when I don't have a pair, because hands like AJ tend to win small pots and lose big ones. See my blog on considering postition when forming your pre-flop strategy. As played, you raise to 10c which is a good size (3bb + 1bb per limper) and you get re-raised (3-bet). Villain is seldom bluffing here. 3-bets at 2NL are usually for value and the typical range you'll run into is QQ+/AK. AJs is crushed by that range. It's definitely a mistake to call this re-raise, because playing bloated pots OOP is a big leak. You call and see a two-tone flop of T43. You check, but villain doesn't c-bet. Since his range is QQ+/AK, it's obvious to me that he has AK here, because he would surely bet with all his overpairs on the flop. The turn is the , so the flush gets there. There's a little scope for you to semi-bluff here with your gutshot, but I think AK is going to call, because that hand also has a gutshot. If villain holds the Ac or Kc, he'll have the flush draw too. Basicially, your bluff will only work if villain is particularly tight, and has something like AhKh. (There's also a slight chance that villain 3-bets AQ, in which case he's never folding TPTK!) Villain calls and the river is another queen. This would be quite a good card to bet again, because your turn bet repped top pair as well as a flush. I certainly think you could get villain off AK here, if you bet half pot. Having said that, I don't really recommend bluffing at 2NL. Villains will call too often. I think you recognise that this hand was quite a tricky one to play. You lost a bit of money, but it could have been much worse. If you'd hit a pair of aces, I'm pretty sure you'd lose your whole stack. After all, the final pot here was 80c and you both only had ace high! Your main mistake was not the semi-bluff on the turn. Your mistake was pre-flop. Next time you raise with AJ and get re-raised, the correct play is to muck. AJ is a decent hand to raise with in most positions, but it's a terrible hand in 3-bet pots, especially out of position. Hope this helps! Cheers, Arty

                            Hi, Hand Analysis Any suited aces that are below AT generally should be played in multi way pots as we are trying to play them for a flush or flop the world with a full house or three of a kind, majority of the time (our implied odds will be correct to call). Plus, we will be splitting the pot with all A8 and below on most board textures if just an A is present. When in a heads up pot A8 has a very good chance of being out kicked by A9 AT AJ AQ AK or dominated JJ QQ KK AA. Calling villain4 raise while being on the button may be ok if we know a weaker player is going to call behind, this all depends on the reads we have on the players tendencies? (did you have any reads, was villain4 tight?) But let's take note of their open sizing of 4x the big blind...this is not a standard amount also the villains stack depth is 100bb..so right there is a good indication of strength, this tells me they are willing to play a big pot and the strength of their hand. Post flop, when we re-raise to 30ish cents, what are we trying to get value from? Worse Ax or range that contains a diamond? I Like the line of taking the initiative in position. But when the diamond peels on the turn this is not the best turn card to barrel as it discounts cards from our range that contain a strong diamond and it's plausible the villain could have a diamond or possibly two pairs and a huge maybe Jx, which would leads us to shut down and check back the turn as we have extremely thin show down value. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
