        JJ UTG on super-loose table I'd waited and folded an awful long time on a really loose table before getting JJ... Didn't like the board but these guys were crazy. What should I have done? Left the table? Thanks! GringoJek

              Hi GringoJek! I'll analyse the hand in post #4.

              It's good to hear you remained patient. On the play money tables in particular, you'll see some crazy play, and it can be tempting to start playing random garbage in the hope you get lucky, but that would be a bad habit to pick up, as real money games are much tougher and villains won't be giving their chips away so easily. That being said, JJ is a monster hand in a play money game, so you should try and win a big pot with it if you get the chance. Raising pre-flop is great. When villain 5 re-raises, he's committed about a third of his starting stack. This means he's pot-committed and won't be folding any time soon. Since JJ is likely to be ahead of his range, I would go directly all in over the top. You'll lose quite often against random hands, but as long as you get your money in as a favourite, you'll make profits in the long run. As played, you call, and now you're pot-committed. On any flop where you make a set or an overpair, you should push all in. That's what happens. Amazingly on the T93 flop, two villains both have T9, so you're in terrible shape, especially as you have no flush draw, but you're lucky enough to spike a 2-outer on the river. Bear in mind that on the real money tables, you shouldn't play JJ so aggressively. Villains won't routinely be putting a lot of chips in the pot pre-flop with worse hands than JJ, and if they stack off on the flop, they will have QQ+, TPTK, or a set, so be a bit more cautious, and perhaps treat JJ like TT or 99. Play aggressively if you happen to flop an overpair, but don't go too crazy if you have a bad flop that contains overcards.

              Hope this helps!

              Best of luck when you get the real money bonus!
              Cheers,

                Hand analysis

                Wasn't it a 4 outer? 2 jacks and 2 threes. I had a 16% chance! 4 outs times 4. I'm probably the 1% that actually read the basic guide lol. Though what the odds of hitting 2 out of those 4 outs are I dunno.

                Thanks!

                  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!

                        Hi GringoJek,

                        I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

                        I don't mind calling the BB with a suited ace and play multiway. We flop pretty well with the nut flush draw and a straight draw. I think our hand benefits more from being aggressive by taking a check raise line OTF that way we fold hands that already beat us since we still don't have a made hand and we build a pot for the times we do hit vs pocket pairs, and weaker flush draws.

                        GL at the tables!

                              Hello, 'Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus'+ Remember it's 10 VPPs earned AFTER you got your last buy-in, not 10 VPPs total (any VPPS earned before you got your last buy-in do not count) If you have earned 10 VPPs AFTER you got your 2nd bonus then your 3rd bonus should be credited to you automatically within 24 hours. Let me know when you get it and I'll advise on the next step. Raiser umbup:
