      Thank you! I have finished: 1) Watching the 'Getting Started' video 2) Posting a 'PLAY MONEY' hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer 3) Passing the Poker Basic course. Here is my replayed hand. I extracted close to maximum value since the villain showed immense weakness, and a semi-bluff reraise on the flop, or a bet on the turn would have scared him off. A small raise most likely means that the villain is either on a draw, or has caught a weak pair. When the ace hit the river, I was hoping he would either complete his draw or simply call me with a weak pair, which he did. However, I possibly could have extracted more on the river since it's just play money though.

            OK, please do not do any more steps until you are asked. Doing the steps before you are asked can delay the system

            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.

            Cheers.

              Hi Kepelas! There are two important points with this hand. Firstly, let's look preflop. You have a speculative hand that is playable from late position, but not strong enough to be playing from early postion. It may be ok at play money, but you definately want to fold small suited connectors from ep once you start on real money. From ep I would like to have AJs at a minimum or 1010+. Also, regardless or your cards, any time you are the first to enter the pot preflop (it folds to you) always do so with a raise. Limping in as you did just makes it harder to win the hand. Moreover, it keeps the pot small when you do win. As played, when you spike your flush on the turn, you should definately raise. This is both for value AND to protect your hand. If the villain has a club, it will most likely be higher than yours. If a fourth club comes on the river, your hand won't be worth much. Raise now to protect your good hand. Moreover, if the villain does have a draw to a straight or flush, bet now while they still believe they can win the hand. If you wait until the river, they will fold all the missed draws. Raising the turn will get you more value this way. Nice startumbup: 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!

                  Here is a very interesting hand below: Could have extracted 20c more but decided to simply flat call in case of a flush. Reasons for big bets: 1. To gain value from hands 2. Put pressure on opponents 3. Make opponent pay for draws (similar to gaining value) 4. Or to bluff

                      Hi Kepelas! Nice pot I like your preflop raise. With smaller pairs, I would simply call behind and hope to flop a set, but JJ+ are strong enough to win the hand without improving to a set. Therefore, it is best to raise and limit the number of players seeing the flop. This protects your hand and gains you value. Here you flop top set, but the board is all one suit. Did you have any sort of read on the villain? We don't want to pay him off if he has a flush. Calling the flop and turn bets are fine. It keeps his range wider than if you were to raise. Even if he does have a flush you will improve to a full house about 25% of the time. The large river bet is a bit more unclear. Knowing whether calling or folding is best is read dependent. However, if you are going to call such a large bet, with nearly four dollars in the pot, I would have raised your remaining few cents. If you had a significant amount behind, then calling as you did rather than raising would be correct. GL and have fun at the tablesumbup: Roland GTX
