          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.

            Hi pokergal902! I'll analyse the hand in post #4. You have A6o in the big blind, and the action facing you is a limp, a raise and 3 calls. It might surpsise you to hear this, but I'd actually recommend folding. A6o is not a profitable hand, and it plays especially badly out of position in the blinds. You can't make a straight or flush using both cards, and you'll usually just make a weak top pair, as your kicker is no good. As played, you call and the flop comes A44. This is a pretty dry flop. There's a flush draw and a few gutshots, but generally you'll only get action on this board from random 4s and better aces. You checked to the pre-flop raiser, which is fine, and he makes a very small bet. There's a call, and then you decide to check-minraise. I'm not really sure what you're doing here. The problem with raising is that it's hard for worse hands to call. I suppose you could get value from flush draws, but I would be concerned about someone having AT+ or trips, and it's even more worrying when your bet gets re-raised. You call, so now the pot is much larger than your stack and you are pot-commited, which means you'll gave to get all your chips in on the turn even if it's a bad card for your hand. The on the turn is a very bad card, as it completes the flush draw. Nonetheless, you go all in, and villains are seemingly also committed, because the pot is huge and the price of calling relatively small. Fortunately for you, one villain overvalued pocket deuces and you drag the pot. When you get on to the real money tables, I would hardly ever expect you to have the best hand given this kind of action. Nice hand, but be more careful with ragged aces in future. Hope this helps! Cheers, Arty

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.
