            Hi ImBluffing81,

            I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

            Definitely betting both flop and turn. However, I think we should size it bigger; we have top & bottom on a very wet board, there is a straight and flush potential and our hand is vulnerable. I want to bet big here 2/3 to 3/4 pot to charge draws a higher price and build the pot.

              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! flophitter umbup:

                    Hi ImBluffing81! I'll analyse the hand in post #8.

                    I love the way you played this. Raising pre-flop is standard. When you flopped top set, betting out is great. Many (bad) players would choose to slowplay here, but I like to go for as much value as possible, and you don't do that by checking. It's a dream come true when villain check-raises all in on the flop. You can snap-call and he's drawing dead. All in drawing dead is always fun. Nice hand!

                    Hope this helps!
                    To get more tuition on cash game basics, I recommend going to live training sessions for the Wednesday and Saturday Games if you can. You'll even be able to play alongside other PSO members in the Homegame club and get instant feedback on the way you play your hands. Good luck!

                    Cheers,

                            Is there a way to get the hand history from when I lost the money? It isn't in the last week or last 100 hands?

                              Hi ImBluffing81 Hmm that's odd, it should be in both of those selections of hand histories. All I can suggest is that you make another request and have another look for the hands in question. If still no luck then let me know and I'll make further enquiries and see what we can do for you. flophitter umbup:
