              Hi sumit2goody! I'll take a look at the hand in post #4.

              With A8s in the SB, faced with several limps, I think just calling is the best option. Although you sometimes have the best hand pre-flop, it is difficult to play this hand out of position, so I'd prefer to see if you hit the flop before building the pot. As played you raise to 8, but get immediately reraised to 40 by the big blind. I would fold to this reraise. The villain is representing a monster hand. A8s is not a monster (indeed it is crushed by hands like AK/QQ+) so folding is wise.
              As played, you call the big reraise and see a flop of K86 4-handed. You made middle pair, which is not a strong holding. You could call a small bet, but don't want to play a big pot. The flop gets checked around, so you see the turn for free. It comes a J, and you lead out for a very small bet. This makes no sense. Firstly the size isn't enough to thin the field or get value when you have the best hand. Secondly, this card does not improve your hand. It makes it relatively worse, as you now have third pair. Don't make bets when you're only getting called by better hands, as that's just giving money away. Unsurprisingly, everyone calls your tiny bet, because they have good odds to do so if they have any pair or draw.
              You get really lucky on the river, as you make trips. Now you almost certainly have the best hand, so it's just a matter of extracting maximum value. On the flop and turn, a standard size for a bet is 50-100% of pot, but on the river we can vary our betsizes according to how strong we think our opponents' holdings are. I think I'd bet about half pot on this river, hoping to get called by Jx (and any Kx hands that didn't bet the flop). You didn't "raise", because you were the first bettor. You made a bet of about 1/4 of the pot. This is fine, but a little bigger would be preferable. Everyone folds to this small bet, so it would seem that no one really had anything. Maybe they had draws that missed, or just had 6x or a random pocket pair like 77.

              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!

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.

                      Hi sumit2goody, You played this hand fine, and won. So, don't stress the result. We don't always win big pots with AA. However, I recommend sticking to the standard bet sizing preflop which is 3bb plus 1bb for each limper. Here you are the first to open, so 3bb or 6c would be the best bet size. Any time you are the first to enter a pot, ALWAYS do so with a raise regardless what you are holding! Firstly, this conceals the strength of your hand because you will be raising the same with AA and a pure bluff like 72o. Secondly, big pairs like AA or KK play best against a single opponent. Raising helps get you value from your big hands AND protects your hand. You do not want to get a string of limpers ruining your hand. Always raise/rereaise any chance you get with KK and AA preflop GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
