            Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you. He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step. The "Getting Started Video" is the first video posted in "Step One," which you can find above.

              Hi abshark22! The first thing that I notice with this hand is that it is from a 6-max table and not a FULL RING one. This promotion is ONLY for full ring and once you receive a bonus from this promotion, playing any type of cash table other than 2NL FULL RING, will make you ineligible for any future bonuses in this promotion. With 66 on the button, I have two choices. One is to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper (50)... OR... I can call and try to setmine. I can only try to setmine if all of the stacks at the table are deep enough (15 times the bet). If the stacks are not deep enough to setmine, then I need to raise or fold. After I call, I get an abnormally small min-raise from an opp. Since I called the first time, if the stacks are still deep enough to setmine (15X) then I can call this bet. Otherwise, I need to fold. I do not want to re-raise here, as my bets will not be telling a consistant story throughout the hand. The first call says that my hand is weak and the re-raise says that it is strong... it just doesn't make sense. When I see a flop that contains a pair and overcards, when an opp bets into me, I need to fold, as the overwhelming majority of the time, I'm going to be beat. If all of the opps had checked, then I'd check behind and hope to get a six on the turn (and fold to any turn bet if I miss). I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I have the best hand, not when I am most likely beat. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                      Excellent! 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 completed and we will award you with your next buy-in. Best of Luck! umbup:
