        Replay hand for Bankroll builder As you can see in this hand I got nice size pot, but I am not sure how good was my play in this hand, I made a call before flop cause it was not big raise, few callers so I was thinking it can be a good call with QT, I raised after flop to check where is it my hand so far, one reraise and few callers indicated that there is few players connected to the flop but I decided to make a call, 3. club on turn and action after turn get worried me a bit, but raise was not too big considering size of pot so I decided to make a call and on river my hand become stronger and I was already committed to pot...At all, I am not sure how good was my decision on turn, any comment would be great...

              Hi zrinjaaa! With QTo from the SB, I get a min-raise and 3 callers. I need to muck this hand preflop and here's why. While my hand does have some potential, I'm out of position, which is one of the largest disadvantages in poker. Players sometimes look at playing from the blinds, that it can be cheaper to see flops due to already having chips in the pot... this is a big chip leak. I actually want to be playing the smallest % of hands from the SB compared to any other seat at the table, due to the positional disadvantage. If I did see the flop (which I would not), when I see that I hit top pair, I need to make a value bet. Bets postflop need to be made based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4+ opps, I need to make a pot-sized bet of 25 and do not want to bet less as by betting less, I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me.... something I do not want to do. When I get raised and then called by multiple opps, I need to muck. Calling and calling to try and chase hands is how many players lose all of their chips and is something that I absolutely want to avoid. The key here is to muck marginal hands preflop when out of position. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  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 zrinjaaa, I think you have played this hand well! I would use the same betsizing on the river as you have. umbup:
