            Hi Nagine, Thank you for posting your hand for review! I personally would not raise this hand given my stack size, I would rather iso-raise with a hand that I'd be happy to flop top pair with. Nevertheless, QTs is a playable hand with initiative so I like your raise as opposed to limping behind but I would go for a standard 3x raise + 1bb for every caller/limper; so instead of 30, I'd make it 50. So great, we just flopped top pair on a some what drawy board; putting out straight draws for KJ,QJ,87. We get donked into very small and its called - given the action and bet sizing I think there are no strong hands in both their ranges so I'm taking out sets and 2pair hands and it looks like they are on some weak pair or draws. Given that information I like raising to get value from draws and not give away a cheap turn. We are now committing the rest of our chips with two pair as their are some combo hands that we don't want to give a free river card (J9,K9,JT,KT). wp umbup:

              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! flophitter umbup:

                    Hi again Nagine

                    Up to the turn, you played your hand well. But I think the turn does not bring fold equity and it helps our opponents range once they call the flop, so I would give up on the hand and x/f.
                    Luckily we were able to take down the pot when the Ace comes on the river; but I think this would be an expensive line to take in general.

                    GL at the tables!
