                Hi 1amAdonK! I'll take a look at the hand in post #6.

                You most definitely did not play this hand correctly. QTs is a pretty hand with good speculative value, but it's not a monster. I'd sometimes just fold it in this position, as it plays better closer to the button, but making a standard raise to 3bb is OK. Right after your raise, however, a villain shoves all in for 325 chips. That's a stack of over 160bb. There's also a call of this huge overbet. I'm never calling here. The only hands I'd get all in pre with for 100bb are AA and KK, and sometimes QQ if I know a player will stack off with worse. QTs is crushed by QQ+, so calling a 160bb shove is not going to be profitable in the long run. One of the crazy things about calling is that it only leaves you with 75 chips behind, but the pot will be over 1200 on the flop, so you'll be pot-committed and can't fold even if it comes AKK in hearts and diamonds.
                The flop here is K92, so you do at least have a gutshot, so it's - bizarrely - correct to get the rest of your chips in, as the pot is so huge in relation to the size of your stack. Chasing gutshots is not a profitable play in normal circumstances. You spike a jack on the turn to give you a straight, and you manage to drag the pot. Villains' hands aren't shown, but I'd guess they had hands like AA, KK, AK, JJ etc, unless they were maniacs.
                Basically, this hand just shows random gambling. We don't teach that at PSO. We want to turn you into a solid poker player that makes money in the long run. You won't do that by putting 200bb in the pot with QTs. Save the big bets for real monster hands like QQ+ and AK.

                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!

                  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! flophitter umbup:

                    bankroll session feedback Hi flophitter As you can see the uga made a standard 3bb raise.With KQo i decided to fold thinking that the hand was to weak to 3bet from that position.Was i correct in folding or should i have 3bet to 18bb.Please advise, thanks and btw the answers to the question why a player might want to make a big bet are as follows 1. 2 protect your hand against strong draws 2. 2 value bet your hand 3. 2 bluff your opponents out of a better hand

                        Hi again 1amAdonK!

                        The hand in post #10 is a simple one to analyse.
                        When a villain opens UTG, his range is something like 99+, AK, AQs. KQ isn't beating any hands in that range, so it's an easy fold. I wouldn't even play this hand in this early position even if UTG had folded. KQo is a trouble hand that shouldn't really be opened until you are in middle-late position. 3-betting it would be a big mistake, because you'd never get called by worse.

                        Hope this helps!
                        Cheers,
