        Hand replay
        Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
        This situation was so bad. I got the evidence of bluffing by other player and I raised - because I made top pair already on the flop. But on the river I did not concentrated on game, so I lost my all stacks (though I already lost about 80% of my stacks on the turn)

            Hi Wayne378! The first thing with this hand that I see is that whenever sitting at a ring table, I always want to wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds by posting will be a huge drain to a bankroll over time and something that I want to avoid. With AQs, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 5 limpers, I need to raise to 8BB or 16 chips. By keeping my bets and raises standard, this helps to keep the opps guessing as to the cards that I'm playing. Players that bet more with better cards and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent, something that I want to avoid. I see a 5-way flop where I hit top pair, but this is a very wet board, as they are all clubs with possible straight draws too. An opp now shoves for 110 and is called. I wish I had more chips here, because the only way I can price out a player with a single club from their draw or a player with a straight draw is to raise 3/4 pot since there are 3 opps. Unfortunately, I don't have that many chips. If the opps are known to play suited cards, then I need to muck here. If not, then I need to shove here and hope that the opps don't hit their draw. When playing a ring table, I always want to buy-in for the maximum amount (if it's a capped table) and to buy-in for at least the number of chips as the largest stack at the table if not. This way, I can avoid situations like this. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

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.

                      The reasons why a player may want to make a big bet

                      1) To put a lot of pressure on opponents
                      2) To gain value from very strong hands
                      2) To protect against strong draws


                      And I passed cash game course. check it please

                          Hi Wayne! I'll analyse the hand in post #10.

                          A4o is a trouble hand. It doesn't make money in the long run, because it flops so badly. If you make top pair, your kicker is useless, so if you bet for value, you'll usually only get called by better aces. In short, ragged aces win small pots (when villains miss the flop) and loses big ones (when they have you out-kicked). Since you can't make the nut flush using both cards, it's basically unplayable in early position. Limping in (just calling the big blind) is a weak play that doesn't give you an immediate chance to win the pot. Raising isn't great either, as you're almost certain to be called by someone who has position on you. That means the only good play is to just open fold.
                          As played, you limp, but there's no raise, so you see a cheap flop. You totally missed, and it gets checked to the river, where the big blind bets 3/4 pot. With ace high you have to fold. You played it fine post-flop, but you could have saved 2c by never getting involved in the first place. Small 2c mistakes like this add up over time. Be very careful with ragged aces. Since they don't have a positive expectation, just give them up like other trash hands.

                          Hope this helps!
                          To get more tuition on cash game basics, I recommend going to live training sessions for the Wednesday and Saturday Games if you can. You'll even be able to play alongside other PSO members in the Homegame club and get instant feedback on the way you play your hands. Good luck!

                          Cheers,
                          Arty
