            Thank you for posting these hands for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at them for you.
            He will do this within the next 24 hours and once they've been analysed I will advise on the next step.

            Cheers.

              Hi Curbside101! With 33 here you want to fold 100% of the time. You are ahead of pocket 2s, but all other hands will be overcards or overpairs. You are facing an utg raise which usually means a strong starting hand. A 3-bet which will nearly always be a very strong hand, then a caller before the action gets to you. You just won't flop a set often enough to make calling here profitable. I would only call with KK and AA in this spot to be honest. At play money and 2NL, there are so many clearly good spots to play, that I would recommend avoiding marginal spots like this. The risk is not worth the reward. With small pairs our plan should be to see the flop cheaply. We want to have 20:1 odds in order to get the proper implied odds. Try to be patient and wait for good starting hands. In general you don't want to risk your whole stack until you have a strong made hand such as a set or better GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

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.

                            1. To put a lot of pressure on opponents
                            2. To bluff people
                            3. To gain value from very strong hands
