            Hi Sphinx536! is a decent starting hand. However, it works best as a speculative hand where we hope to flop a flush or straight draw. Flopping a pair functions more as a backup plan. With speculative hands, we want to see the flop cheaply. Raising preflop may be a good line if this were real money. We can raise in an attemt to isolate the original limper. On play money tables, villains rarely fold and most flops are seen by multiple opponents. So, raising just builds the pot without reducing the number of villains. I think just calling preflop would have been a more profitable line. It keeps the pot small and allows you to avoid committing many chips until you have a strong hand or strong draw. As played, you raise, get a caller then an all in reraise by the short stack. The short stack could have anything, but the callers seems fairly weak with his passive line thus far. I would recommend moving all now rather than calling as you did. Raising all in gives you an important added chance to win the hand since the caller may fold. This is called fold equity. Calling as you did gives him the opportunity to push you out of the hand which he attempted to do by moving all in. Another way to think about this spot is as follows. If you intend on calling an all in raise (as you did here), it is usually better to be the aggressor and raise all in yourself since your fold equity improves your odds of winning. I wouldn't have minded you raising all in. However, calling the all in is going to be questionable. Don't stress the results in this hand. The important part is looking at your decisions preflop. There is plenty to learn from this hand GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

              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!
