          Hi optimus8778!

          With 77 from the BB, I get 6 limps in front of me. Since the stacks are deep enough (both myself and the opps have 15+BB's in them), I'm going to check and try to setmine. While 77 is a made hand, it's very marginal.
          If I did raise, then I would make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper, which for here would be to 9BB or 450. However, this bet would pot-commit me, as I would have to put over 1/3 of my reamining chips into the pot... something I do not want to do with a marginal hand.

          My plan for the rest of the hand, after checking and seeing the flop, is to make a standard value bet if I flop a 7 or to check and fold to any bet if I miss the flop.

          Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

          John (JWK24)

          P.S. Please let me know when you have passed the basics quiz.

                Hi optimus8778!

                I do not see in our system that you have passed the quiz at the very end of the poker basics course. This is the 15 question one at the end, not the smaller ones during the course.

                Please pass this quiz, as it's a mandatory step to move on with the promotion.

                        Trash cards that can win by bluff

                        [replay hand_id=478912 type=ps title_id=2 showControls=1 themePath=table_PS_560x386.jpg lang=en gameEntity=0 hash=7A0D51F8C7]


                        I would have raised higher bets but it's my instinct that my opponent was just only pretending by "checking" and yet i was holding the so called trash cards.
                        Since High King of Spade on the flop, i tried to raised the minimum amount to see their reactions, one opponent folded the remaining one just called.
                        Then Six of Clubs on the turn, opponent checked. I raised again with the minimum amount, he folded immediately.

                        Was my minimum amount of betting a big mistake with those cards i have or... i should have risk higher bets?

                          3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet

                          1. To put a lot of pressure on opponents,..forcing them to fold.
                          2. To bluff opponents off with their decent hands.
                          3. To gain value from very strong hand and to protect against strong draws.

                            Hi optimus8778! There are several points worth noting in this hand. Firstly, try to play on tables where all the seats are filled. This will make it much easier for you to play good poker with good starting hands. Being on short tables forces you to play more marginal hands. Experience is needed to do this profitably. I strongly recommend that you adjust the Filter in the Holdem Lobby to only show tables with 8 players. That way, when you sit down, the table will always have 9 players. That is what I do Secondly: When you do sit down at a table, be sure to check the "Wait for Big Blind" box! Paying 1bb doesn't sound like much, but it adds up fast and is just throwing money out the window since you will lose the vast majority of these hands. Now, on to the actual hand. You are dealt . You should be folding this hand 100% of the time preflop. Here you paid the bb out of turn, but at least get to see the flop without putting more in the pot. Niether opponent has shown any strength. If you are going to bluff, I suggest betting 50% - 70% of the pot. Our bet needs to be big enough to get folds. It is too easy for opponents to call the min-raise. Normally it will just result in bloating the pot without getting any folds. Moreover, 1bb min-raises are often a tell of a bluff at 2NL. An experienced player will take advantage of you if you continue doing this. More importantly, this is not the best spot to even consider bluffing for several reasons. Firstly, at 2NL bluffing is not neccessary, and will often be costly. Playing ABC poker, betting your good hands for value and folding your bad ones is by far the easiest way to be profitable. Bluffing gets costly because many players just don't fold enough which makes it difficult bluff successfully. Secondly, this looks like your first hand at the table. If so, I assume you have no information on the opponents. Bluffing unknowns is not recommended since you have no idea how to predict their reactions. The few bluffs that you do should be against known players in spots where you have good reason to expect them to fold. This brings us back to using the "Wait for Big Blind" box. While waiting, your job is to follow the action and start building notes/reads on your opponents, especially those seated nearest you. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
