        Wouldn't this type of play be too loose for real cash games? Have I done something wrong with continuation bets? The player which have stayed with was a very loose one, so i think it's right to limp that big raises when you do hit overpair though.

              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 anxty747! With AKo from the hijack, I get 3 limps in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 3 limps, I will raise to 6BB or 60 chips. I want to keep all of my bets standard, as players that bet more with better hands and less with weaker ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent.. something I absolutely want to avoid doing. I totally miss the flop and both opps check to me. If I had made a standard raise preflop, then I would make a 2/3 pot c-bet (the standard amount for a pot with 2 opps, as post-flop bets need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture). However, due to the abnormally large bet preflop, I need to check here for two reasons. First, for pot control and secondly because an opp that calls an abnormally large bet should have something and as of now I only have ace high. The turn gives me top pair and the opp shoves. If it were checked to me, I'd need to make a 1/2 pot value bet (a standard bet for only 1 opp in the hand), however, this bet would be over 1/3 of my stack, so I'd be pot-committed and need to shove. Due to this, I'm calling the opp's bet here. The key with this hand is to make standard bets/raises throughout the hand. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  I think my best excuse here would be that i'm taking advantage of very ignorant and loose players to take big pots. It's surprisingly simple to read most of opponents in these 5/10 play money games. The betting structure of real money games where everyone is guarding their "real" stack should be very different and tougher. Thanks for the fast reply!

                    It will not be different. You'll see the same type of play there. I've even seen it in $300+ buy-in live tourneys.

                      Wow, so if I got it right, there are people who calls/bets high bets in these big games with that much risk? I feel pretty much like a just started newbie.

                        I had a player in the seat to my right in a $365 WSOP Circuit game that lasted all of 4 hands. Bet/raise every hand with basically nothing (had 99 one hand on a board with 3 overs). Threw away 10k chips in the 4 hands, basically with trash.

                          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!

                              *Gain value from the nuts

                              *To bluff with decent hands

                              All steps are completed.
