          And Here is my hand for you to analize I've folded this one, but I found that interesting cause lot's of players played this hand agressively loose, I'm I right? This other one, I've limp'd in to the flop played agreesively my strong hand and won a very big pot: I noticed that I and my oponent misplayed. I was in danger cause of J and Q.. he could have made a bigger second pair, but he was only check-calling and that told me that he didn't had much... Any advices would be great.

              Hi gmagella!

              To unlock the bonuses with a deposit, you need to finish the first two steps.

                Hi gmagella! With T9o in the BB, I get 3 limps, a min-raise and 2 calls. I'm going to call here and hope to see the flop for only 3 more chips. If the cards were not connected (ex: 79, 58, etc) then I'd muck. I flop the bottom end of a gutshot draw and will check and hope to see the turn card for free. When the opps make a sizable bet, I'm going to muck and look for a better spot. ---------- With K6o from UTG+1, this is a very bad hand and due to this, I need to immediately muck it preflop. When playing from out of position, I want to only be playing premium cards and if everyone in front of me has folded, I want to either raise or fold.. and K6 is nowhere near strong enough to raise with. If I was in the hand (which I would NOT be), I will make a standard 1/2 pot value bet on all three streets.. flop, turn and river. By keeping my bets standard I keep the opps guessing as to the cards that I'm playing. Opps that bet more or less based on their cards are basically turning their cards face-up to an opponent, which is something that I want to try to avoid. Every hand can get lucky and win, but I want to be getting my chips in when I'm ahead in the hand, not when I'm most likely behind, like K6 is preflop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Hi there JWK24.
                  Thanks for taking the time to analize my hands. I appreciate it.

                  Would you bare with me a little discussion about K6o?
                  I agree with you... it's a pretty bad hand pre-flop, but top 2 pairs are a strong hand after the frop, aren't? About my raise post flop, my intention was to protect my hand, as I "might" have the strongest hand at the moment, am I wrong?
                  From then I stuck with the plan 1/2 pot each street.
                  I forgot to mention that the table was too loose, and they were playing almost every hand... so..

                  Do you think I've play'd wrong? I'm talking about the thinking process, any advices will be appreciated!

                  Thanks again.

                    Hi gmagella!

                    On the flop, the pot-size bet that the opp makes actually DOES protect your hand. If they bet less, then you would need to raise to protect against any draws, but their bet was large enough to do it for you.

                    The thing that is wrong about the hand is being in it, in the first place. When out of position, I only want to be playing premium hands, not something that is at best marginal. With a K as one of my cards, I want the other card to be able to make a straight, flush or preferably both (if the other isn't another K). K6 cannot make any of these hands, so it needs to be mucked.

                    Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

                          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.

                          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!
