            Hi ardavanbeyk! The first thing I see here is even before the hand begins. When playing a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over will be a HUGE drain to a bankroll. With 89o, I get 2 limps (including the post) and then a shove. I need to immediately fold this here as it's nowhere near a strong enough hand to call this bet with. If I had AA, KK or maybe QQ, then I'd call, but lesser hands need to be mucked, as I want to get my chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                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!

                      Hi ardavanbeyk! I'll take a look at the hand in post #9.

                      In a standard deep-stacked situation (when you have 100bb) you could actually fold AT in the small blind when facing a raise, because it doesn't play so well when you're out of position (OOP). Here, you only have 35c, so I don't mind going all in as a 3-bet reraise. (If you made a standard raise to 12c, you'd be committed to getting the rest in on the flop, as a third of your stack would already be in the middle, meaning you're "pot-committed" and cannot fold if you make a pair).
                      Unfortunately, villain makes a loose call with AJ, which he should actually fold to this action, as he's way behind hands like TT+/AQ+ which would also be in your shoving range. Unfortunately, you're in terrible shape with a dominated hand and can't spike a ten, so villain wins the pot with top pair, better kicker.

                      Hope this helps! Better luck with the next bonus.

                      Cheers,
                      Arty
