                awesome thanks I am trying to past the beginners quiz having some trouble so I am going to try it again today hopefully I will have that complete soon as well. And thanks to everyone who has made this school possible. I am having so much fun. played in 4 open tournaments. started off only getting to the 1000th position. Last night I got to the 200th and the night before I got to the 300th.And that is in a matter of about a week. I can really see a difference in my playing as well.

                    Hi miket.mt69! I'll take a look at the hand in post #6.

                    First of all, I notice that there are several empty seats on this table. Short-handed play requires a looser style with more aggression. Since this promotion (and the PSO basic courses) is based on full ring games, I would generally find another table if the one you are on is breaking up, because you need to learn patience and discipline, and don't want to have to pay the blinds so often.

                    Even on a short-handed table, Q8o isn't strong enough to play. I would just fold this hand, even though the only action in front of you is a limp. As played, you call and see a flop of 872, which is a good one for you, as you made top pair. When all the villains check to you, making a bet is the best idea. You can get value from flush and straight draws, so a bet of close to the size of the pot is a good idea. There's one call, so you see the turn, which is an ace. This is a somewhat scary card. It might have improved villain's hand, but it will also scare him if he has a worse pair. If he has a flush/straight draw, then it doesn't change anything. I think betting is a good idea. You can bet, but if villain makes a decent raise, then you can fold knowing that you're beat. 140 into 240 is a good size. Villain calls again. The river is the 6s. This isn't too terrible. The flush draw missed, but if villain had an open-ended straight draw on the flop with T9, then he just made the nuts. Villain checks, but I'd be a little concerned he is going for the check-raise if he has a monster, because he knows you've bet the flop and turn so are likely to also bet the river. I'd actually check behind here. When considering making a value-bet, I always ask myself "Can worse hands call?" and here there really aren't many. Flush draws that missed aren't calling, and there are very few worse pairs than 8x with worse than a Q kicker. As played you bet, and villain calls. You drag the pot, and I have no idea what villain calls with. About the only hands you beat that might call here are J8, T8 and 98. Villain would have to be really bad to call with anything worse than that.

                    Hope this helps!
                    To get more tuition on cash game basics, I recommend going to live training sessions for the Wednesday and Saturday Games if you can. You'll even be able to play alongside other PSO members in the Homegame club and get instant feedback on the way you play your hands. Good luck!

                    Cheers,
