              Hi super.woman0! KJo is not strong enough to open with from early position. When you get reraised all in and a string of callers, you want to fold this every time. You may be facing random cards on a play money table, but once you get to real money, you are going to be far behind your opponents' ranges. Be patient! Wait for good starting hands and try not to commit yourself (your stack) to the pot until you have a strong made hand such as a set or better. With KJo we need to ask ourself "what hand am I expecting to make?" You don't have suited cards for a flush. Your cards are gappers which means it will be a bit tougher to make a straight. And if you pair the board, you will not have top kicker as you would with AK for example. In other words, you just wont win often enough in this spot to make calling profitable. As played, you get a K on the turn. This is not a good spot to invest the rest of your chips. Notice firstly that there is an A on the board. So, you do not have top pair. Secondly, there are four clubs and you do not have a club. The villain is going to have a better hand than you pretty much every time here. Moreover, there is no chance of your hand improving to the nuts on the river. Folding is clearly best here. Remember, wait for good starting hands and don't invest your stack unless you have a strong made hand postflop such as a set or better. Let your opponents make the mistakes GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                Hi super.woman0, I wanted to award you with your first bonus but I don't see your pass in our system here. Are you sure it was the Poker Basic quiz you passed? If you're not sure, please take it again and let me know. flophitter umbup:

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:
