                    Hi 66theOnLYoNe! With QQ in the BB and 3 limps in front of me, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, I will bet 6BB or 12 chips. I do not want to raise to more or less than this number of BB. I want to keep all of my raises standard, so that the opps are continually guessing as to the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to their opponents and is something that I want to avoid doing as an observant opp will not pay off my better hands and will continually raise my weaker ones. 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.

                            Hi 66theOnLYoNe! I'll take a look at the hand in post #12.

                            With Q7s two seats off the button, I'd just fold pre-flop. This hand just isn't very strong. It can make a flush, but can't make a straight using both cards. Most of the time, you'll just make one pair with a bad kicker.
                            As played, you over-limp, presumably because you want to see if you can hit a flop for a cheap price, but the SB makes an iso-raise. Now you have to call 8c if you want to see a flop. All of a sudden, a hand that you thought would cost 1bb to play is costing you 5bb. This is your second opportunity to fold. Calling is no good, because you never have the best hand pre-flop. Villain isn't raising with Q6 or J9, is he? You call, however, and the flop is KJ3. You completely missed and villain bets. Why are you calling here? Villain's bet is small in relation to the pot, but you have queen high! If villain missed, he's likely to have ace high at least, if not something like TT.
                            When you call, villain might put you on a pair, either a pocket pair or Kx or Jx. When he checks the turn, he seems to be giving up. If I was going to bluff at all in this hand, I would do so on the turn. You can bet in position representing trip kings and villain will usually fold medium pairs and ace high. By waiting to the river before betting, it looks like you're bluffing. After all, if you had a real hand, why would you wait till the 3 on the river before betting? I'm not too surprised the villain calls with ace high to catch your bluff, because your line doesn't represent a made hand. On double-paired boards especially, ace high is often good.
                            I really don't recommend bluffing very often in the micros, but when you do it, you should tell a compelling story, and this means you have to put money in the pot for two streets in a row. If the story doesn't make sense you'll get looked up. Since playing hands like Q7s will mean you seldom make a strong hand, so you'll gave to bluff to win, you're far better off just folding pre-flop.

                            Hope this helps!
                            Cheers,
