              He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

                    Hi AVICll! I'll take a look at the hands in posts #6 and #9.

                    In the first one, you have 63s in the big blind. This is a very weak hand, so the only time I play it is when I can check my option in the big blind and see a free flop, like you did here. The flop comes 762 which is pretty dry, as all broadway cards missed. The action is checked around so you see the turn for free. It comes a 6, so you made trips. Since you almost certainly have the best hand, betting for value is the right idea. You made it 4 chips into 12, but I'd go a little bigger. It's standard to bet between half pot and full pot, to get value for your hand and to make it a mistake for draws to call. If you bet less than half pot, villains could suck out, and it would be your own fault because you gave them the right price to do so. Here, two villains call. The river is a 3, so your "big blind special" made a full house. It's possible that someone made a straight here, because 54 had an open-ended straight draw on the flop. I'd target that hand by making quite a big value bet on the river. Your bet of 18 into 24 is perfect. Unfortunately, there was no call, but you played it nicely.

                    With JTs, I think it's OK to limp along with all the other players and play a multiway pot, as this hand is a great speculative holding that flops very good draws. If there was no one else in the pot, I'd usually fold this hand in early-middle position, and only play it in the cutoff or or on the button, when I'd raise to try and steal the blinds. As played, it's a family pot with 8 players and you see a two-rone flop of A98. This is a huge flop for you, as you have a monster draw. With your open-ended straight draw plus flush draw, you're actually a favourite to beat top pair, so I would definitely try and get a lot of money in the pot on the flop. Three players put 10 chips into the pot, so there's 110 in the pot when the action reaches you. Raising as a semi-bluff is a great play, and 100 is a nice size, as it's close to the size of the pot. Amazingly, 4 players call the raise, so you could win a very big pot if you hit one of your 15 outs.
                    As luck would have it, you spike a queen on the turn, giving you the nut straight. Villains will never put you on JT here, as they probably think you raised the flop with Ax. When villain 4 donks into you for a very small bet, raising is good. When another re-raises, you have an easy decision. You call all in and the cards go on their backs. Villain 8 had a pretty good draw himself, with second pair and the flush draw, but you already had the nuts. A diamond on the river would have given villain a winner, but it's unlikely to come when you both had diamonds in your hands. Nice hand, well played!

                    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,
                    Arty

                      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.

                      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.

                        Thank you so much!

                        Yes, every information really helps to me!

                        It seems I am not so bad, as I thought about myself in poker ))

                        Sorry, about my English

                        P.S.

                        I play 5cd well, but I have never tried holdem because I thought it was just a luck
