            Hi Nodry_61! With QQ from the cutoff, I get 5 limpers in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 5 limpers, I will raise to 8BB or 80 chips. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, so that the opps are continually guessing as to the cards that I'm playing. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to their opponents... something I want to avoid. I get 3 undercards, which isn't totally unexpected with QQ and I get a number of abnormally small bets. There is a min bet, 2 calls, a min-raise and a call. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the pot size, number of opps and board texture. With 5 opps in the hand, I would need to make a pot-sized bet if it were checked to me, so I need to make a pot sized value raise.. HOWEVER, I don't have that many chips, so I need to shove! Anytime that I have over 1/3 of my remaining chips that need to be put into the pot, I'm pot committed and whenever this is the case.. I cannot fold. Due to this, I have 1 play in this situation, which is to shove. 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 Nodry!

                    It is my personal preference to buy-in and auto top up for 100bbs. At 2nl this means 0.02 x 100 = 2$.

                    Open raising 3x with KQ from MP seems standard to me too, so I like it
                    There are actually only 2 reasons for betting: a) We bet for Value and b) We bet as a bluff
                    the rest comes as a bi-product; When we cbet or when we do a continuation bet after we raised preflop we are usually capitalizing on dead money or picking up the money in the pot.

                    A standard cbet size would be somewhere between 1/2 and 3/4 pot. I like your sizing, and yes I like cbetting this flop since a paired board is usually a dry board and makes it so hard for our opponent to connect with the cards.
                    If we do get called here, I will be looking for scare cards to bet again on the turn (2barrel); cards like: A, J, T, and K/Q ofcourse.
