        So my question is what you think of this semi-bluff that turned into bluff? I think my bet on the river was too small and that´s why he called + because he had much bigger stack.

              Hi PokerAmigo77! I'll take a look at the hand in post #4.

              With 98o in the big blind, I'd often just fold. You have reasonable pot odds with two players already calling the raise, but your hand is not strong and you'll be out of position (2nd to act) post-flop, which will make it hard to play profitably. As played, you call, but the plan should be to flop a monster (2pr+) or a strong draw. With anything less, you shouldn't put any more money in the pot, as you'll generally need to make a very strong hand to beat all the opponents.
              You call and the flop comes T63 with a flush draw. You have just a gutshot, which is a weak draw. The best play is to check and fold. Instead, you decided to lead out with a donkbet, when you should be checking to the pre-flop raiser to see what he does. If he doesn't like this flop, he might check behind and you could get a free card. You made a stab of 6 chips into 40. This bet serves no real purpose. It's far too small to put any pressure on opponents, but when you're semi-bluffing you need them to fold sometimes. Two villains call. They are likely to have top pair, flush draws or overcards. When another ten hits the board, I think you should give up. A villain is never folding trips if he has it, but also the draws that called on the flop will also call. With 9 high, you have no shot at winning this pot unless you hit your 4-out draw.
              You bet less than half pot, which isn't enough to make better hands fold. Both villains call again.
              The river pairs the board again. You have no chance of making someone fold a full house or a pocket pair, and I think ace high will often call too. Your bluff failed on the first two streets, and it's even less likely to work now. Betting just under half pot is good enough to make missed flush draws fold, but the villain with a big stack and ace high looks you up, so you lost a big chunk of your stack.
              I think the main lesson to learn from this hand is to cut down on your bluffs. It's especially bad to bluff in multiway pots. One of the opponents is bound to have something that can call. Firing on all three streets with 9 high takes courage, but courage alone doesn't make money. Bluffing should be reserved for situations like when you're heads up with a scary board. On play money tables, and to some extent the 2NL cash games, villains will call your bluffs so often that it's pointless even trying. Save your big bets for when you actually have a hand.

              Hope this helps!

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.

                      Probably should have folded pre-flop already...

                        To bluff people off decent hands
                        To gain value from very strong hands
                        To protect against draws

                        And I have completed the quiz so I have all tasks done

                            Hi PokerAmigo77! I think your best line would have been to check preflop, and hope to flop a set. Raising isnt the best line. If everyone folds, you dont win very much since the pot is so small. If you get a string of callers, you will be bloating the pot and playing out of position. If only one player was involved then raising can be good. As played, yes, you should fold to the preflop 3-bet or 4-bet if you think the villain is bluffing. On the flop you are either way ahead or way behind when the villain mini-raises your bet. If you think you are behind, then I would just fold there and then. If you think you are ahead (based on reads from earlier hands) then you want to call with the intention of calling the next bullet on the turn as long as an A doesnt come. This will get max value for you when you are ahead and minimize your losses when you are behind. Knowing what to do has to be based on your reads and what you have seen the villain do previously. If he is unknown then keep it safe and fold to the preflop 3-bet. I hope this helpsumbup: GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
