            Hi, Hand Analysis In a multi way limp pot it's plausible that one of the villains does indeed have a range of Ax. Now post flop is a different story in terms of their bet sizing, their range is weak in my opinion. I can see why you check raised as a bluff it looks SO STRONG doing this into multiple players being at a positional disadvantage in the small blind, but the thing here is we do not have any blockers or equity to the diamonds, 1 card flush combos are going to be a big portion of the villains range here and unlikely Ax, we could possibly get them to fold a nine on future streets. Now that we have highlighted a thought process here, let's talk about stack depth, playing this inflated pot out of position on a 20bb stack depth will put us in awkward position when we get called..you could check the turn and bomb the river (go all in) and maybe get an ace to fold or a hero call from nine..but the thing here is it's hard to get value from worse Kx taking our kicker card into account. Without any reads I'd consider just checking all streets and saving bets for a better value spot. I think you played the hand fine (from a heads up poker point of view), but it's certainly not a line that I'd advocate doing at full ring 9max as relative hand strength to board texture is usually weighted towards strong holdings. Hand Analysis On the turn we have a decent stack depth, the ideal sizing on this depth (in my opinion) is 1/2 pot, you played it fine! But looking at this board texture it's SO DRY and it's hard for a second nut or for the villain to have any decent made hand here..I'd like to think their range on this flop and turn will consist of high card more often than pairs..if we want to get value from those holdings I'd make a sizing of a little bit less than 1/2 pot just to induce a light/marginal call down...the stack to pot ratio is set up for a river jam and the villain will have proper pot odds to make light hero calls! Well played! 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!

                thanks for the feedback. Just to say i wouldn't even bother playing king six if it was real money, but i find that a lot of the time everyone on play money tables play every hand, so i thought i would limp and see a flop. Even when i missed the flop when everyone checked to the button and he makes such a tiny bet i felt i could get away with raising and probably get everyone to fold. in hindsight i probably should have raised bigger on the flop since the initial intention was to get everyone to fold to me, due to how wet the board was, and thinking on play money if they had anything they tend to bet huge.

                  really frustrated, got the bonus up to nearly 4 dollars, and then in only an hour lost nearly all of it. this is the hand were it went wrong and it was just a really stupid move on the river knowing that it was behind went all in to try and bluff him off the hand, and it was called after he flopped a set

                    Hi, Hand Analysis Usually a limping range is perceived as a weak range of holdings, although that is not always the case. I like the pre-flop raise sizing, but did you have any specific reads on that villain? Post flop the continuation bet is standard although when called I'd just take a pot control line of check call on the turn (maybe the river too) to keep all bluffs in the villains range barreling at the pot. I wouldn't be to concerned about the flush as those combos will be part of a small portion of their overall range on this board texture. River, we could have maybe found a fold in this spot, taking board texture into consideration and if we had reads of the villains tendencies in previously played hands coupled with if the villain has ever been aggressive. Unfortunate spot to have them set mine with the lower pair. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

                        the reason someone would bet big is;

                        1) to put pressure on an opponent
                        2) to bluff an opponent of decent hands
                        3) to gain value from really strong hands

                        i have also study the cash game course and completed the cash game test getting 86%.

                            possibly my favourite hand ever, however do you think i was right checking on the river, thinking that he would bet again having a flush.

                              frequent player point and vip player points

                              whats the difference between fpp's and vpp's, and if you use an fpp for a tournament, do you lose the vpp as well or just the fpp.
