          Hi, Hand Analysis We are sitting on about a 100bb stack depth and will be at a position disadvantage post flop! We could elect to raise 3x +1bb for each limper, but given our relative position and the playability of our hand, I'd prefer limping this hand and play fit or fold post flop (flop equity to a flush draw) rarely ever will we feel comfortable betting with this hand for value or calling bets due to having a low kicker card. Post flop, this is a really dry board texture and we need to bet to get value from high card floats coupled with protection as most turn cards will put us in a tough decision. Nice pot! Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

                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!

                  So, Reasons to make big bets: 1st,making a value bet with a good hand 2nd,making a bluff with a strong hand 3rd,putting pressure on opponent I was losing and keep losing..i really played bad those 2 hours and i lost all my bankroll.. Here's the hand which i lost my last dollar..I really didnt play it well,i didn't imagine about that flush..really bad playing..but i would like your opinion.
                  Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

                    Hi, Hand Analysis Sitting on about a 35bb stack depth I'd fold this hand in early position, there are just to many other combos of Qx or Tx that may have this hand out kicked. Also, If I decided that my hand is playable I will enter the pot for a raise of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper, this will help to get initiative in the pot post flop and thin the amount of players involved in the pot which will greatly increase our hand strength/equity while making our decisions much easier. Post flop, did you have any specific reads about this villains tendencies and/or showdown ranges? We have second pair with an open ended straight draw, but there is a flush draw present..so we should discount the clubs from our outs as they will not give us a nut hand. I'd maybe call all three streets, flop turn and river as the villains bet sizing is enticing and minimal. Raising the river is only going to isolate us versus the top of their show down range which would consist of a lot of top Kx or two pair combos and quite possibly a flush..given our stack depth it's going to be hard to generate fold equity here..although we do have two thin blockers, a queen for a set and the ten for a blocker to a straight. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

                              Hi, Even though premium holdings such as AA KK QQ JJ (maybe TT) do have great expectations mathematically to win, start to think of each board texture as being a 'trial'. With all of the possible different board combinations coupled with likely holdings that may have connected with the board, these premium holdings are just a pair. Taking into consideration player tendencies, stack depths, pot odds, implied odds and outs as well board texture a player may be making +EV (plus expected value) call downs to try and draw out on their hand to a holding that can beat a pair. What you are experiencing is called "tilt" it's a slang term for not maintaining positive composure, definition is basically this "To respond badly to a bad beat or downswing by letting it have an adverse affect on your game." All poker players will experience this, it's absolutely normal! One thing that I would recommend, take a short few minute break and sit out on your table but don't leave.. this is purely to recuperate if you experience a beat to where you will feel upset or self entitlement to chase a loss versus a villain that may have been deemed as lucky or other words that could profile them as incompetent. After taking that break and you feel better, before resuming your session look back on the hand replayer and see if there was a spot in the hand that could have been played differently and ask your self these questions: 1.) "could of I found a fold and would it have any merit in this situation versus their tendencies" 2.) "did I make the proper bet sizing to price out marginal holdings" 3.) "was I ever ahead at any point during the hand post flop" If you played the hand correctly and made all the right decisions that is what should matter the most! The objective of poker is to induce opponents to make mistakes, that is how most of the profit we make at the tables is won!umbup: Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
