              Hi OneRocky1! Welcome to the bankroll builder programumbup: There are several important points to take from this hand. Let's take a closer look: With I strongly suggest folding 100% of the time when someone has entered the pot before you. It is not a strong hand and is very hard to play post flop. Ask yourself "what am I hoping to flop?" If you flop a pair, you will rarely have top pair AND you run the very real risk of flopping a pair and losing because of your weak kicker to a hand like AJ or A7. Also, you might get a flush draw, but you are not drawing to the nut flush with an A or even a K. It will be hard to know if you have the best flush when you hit. Finally, J and 7 are not well connected so making a straight is much less likely with this hand than with connected cards such as J10. Learning to be patient and waiting for good/playable hands is the first important lesson. Also, be aware that players rarely fold on Play Money especially if they get a pair. Bluffing is a very bad idea on playmoney and 2NL tables for this reason. You will do much better value betting your strong hands since you will get paid off. This is actually what makes these games very beatable. This becomes important on the flop. As played, raising the flop will have a very low success rate. Also, your raise is a bit big. In general a raise (not 3bet) should be about 2.2-2.5x the original bet. You made it 3x. Also, this is big with respect to your stack. You are committing 1/3 of your chips on a semi-bluff. On the turn, your outs do improve. Now you have 3 good outs with all the aces for the nut straight and 9 flush outs that are probably good, but not 100%. So, 12 outs or about a 25% chance of winning on the river. The villain bet 200. You have to pay 200 for a chance at winning 1020 chips in the pot (and probably the rest of his stack on the river). So, you have 200/1020 = 20% pot odds and 25% chance of winning which is better. Therefore you can profitably call the turn bet. The best line would have been to call the turn. Then fold on the river if you don't make a straight or flush, and get all in if you do make one. Raising all in as you did just gets you value owned. The villain is never folding. Therefore you are willingly paying more in hopes of getting lucky. Your raise created a spot where you gave yourself bad odds to continue with the hand! In general it is good advice to remember that you should rarely (close to never) raise the turn as a bluff. Turn raises should only be for value in spots where you are confident that you have the best hand. Lots of information here! The most important point being wait for good/playable hands and don't bluff on Play Money or 2NL tables. It doesn't work very often, and is not necessary. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

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.
