        Hey raiser!

        I've watched the video and passed the basic course. Here's a hand that I played at the play money tables. In this hand, the opps were all playing very wildly and I wanted to play my hand against them.

                    Hi jake333who! With QT from the SB, I get 4 limps in front of me. I have two options here. I can make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper (if I think some would fold) or I can call and see the flop. I do not want to raise to less than a standard raise, as the opps will be priced in to draw and I would want the raise to get some of the opps to fold. I flop the nut straight, but there is a flush draw out there. Due to this, I want to make a standard value bet both to get value from my hand and also to price out the opp's draw. Bets post-flop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture and with 4 opps, I need to make a pot-sized bet, so I will bet 110. I don't want to bet less than this or the opps could be getting the correct odds to draw to the flush and if I do so and they hit and win, it would be my own fault that I lose the hand. The turn puts a second flush draw out there and with 2 opps, a standard bet is 2/3 pot, so I will bet 273. I do not want to overbet here, as that is a tell to the opps that a player either has the nuts or is bluffing and I do not want to polarize my hand. I want to keep worse hands in so that I can get value from them. The river makes KQ the nuts and with a small amount of chips left, I'll shove the river. I could also have shoved the turn, but would rather keep the opps in the pot to get value from them. The key here is to make standard bets to conceal the strength of my hand and to get value from lesser hands. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                      I've watched the video and passed the basic course.
                      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!

                        I have watched the video and passed the course. Here are the three reasons: I'd want to make a big bet. 1. To get value from my made hands. 2. To put pressure on an opponent. 3. To bluff. Here is a hand from the 2NL tables where I'm not sure about my bet sizes. I won the hand, but did I lose value?

                            Hi jake,

                            I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

                            We have a very strong hand, the best preflop hand in Holdem, I want to build the pot.
                            Checking and calling are passive lines and do not build pots. Betting and raising however do.
                            I would raise preflop to get more value. As played, betting will fold out worse hands. I would take a check raise line to give my opponent a chance to bluff at the pot and we can also get called by FDs. When we bet we force our opponent to have a hand to continue with us. Hands like KsJc are always folding to a bet on this flop, but they might try to bluff at the pot when we check to them that way we would have picked up an extra bet from them

                            GL at the tables!
