            Hi baprejmer! The first problem that I see is even before the hand begins. Whenever playing a ring table, I ALWAYS wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over is a huge drain to a player's bankroll. With 26s, I get 2 limps in front of me (yes, the post counts as a limp). I'd like to muck this trash hand right now, but since the blind was posted, I'll check and hope to see a free flop. If anyone raises, this really bad hand will immediately go into the muck. The key here is to wait for the BB. By not waiting and paying the blind, 200 chips (1BB) was just thrown away. I work hard for the chips that I get and do not want to just give them away to the opponents. 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 baprejmer,

                      Hand# 102509440946
                      I would raise villain's donk bet larger to get him to commit with his TP 9x hand and draws before scared cards come that would shut him down.
                      The flop has 0.18$ and we have an effective stack on 0.62$ which gives us an SPR (stack-to-pot-ratio) of < 4; I am willing to commit here with an overpair given that we did not get 3bet preflop.
                      The turn is a bad card for us for two reasons:
                      1) We lose to Ax
                      2) If he had 9x, 6x this card can scare him off
                      I think checking back the turn with the intention of calling a bet OTR on blanks will keep hands that we beat in his range.

                      Hand# 102510493797
                      Yes, folding preflop is the correct play.
                      Our hand does not play well multi-way and we have an open from UTG which means they will have a strong range.
                      As played, there’s not much to say with your stack size; you got your money in good

                      By the way, I notice you do not play with a full stack. I would encourage you to use the auto top-up feature to have 100bbs at all times – You will get more money with your monsters and poker will be more interesting to learn

                      GL at the tables!
