            Hi, Hand Analsyis When decide that my hand is playable I will enter the pot for the standard amount of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper, although this hand from early to middle position is not strong enough to be isolating a villain, so should be folded pre-flop. if we where in a late position near the button, we'd raise it up as we will have a positional advantage post flop. Post flop, raising the flop to 3/4 pot to fullt pot is great, it's a family pot and it's plausible that one of the villains does indeed has a two card flush combo, plus we could get value forem pocket pairs, worse Qx, ace high and king high. On the turn I would have bet 3/4 pot size, we want to get the stack to pot ratio set up for the river. Plus we want to charge this villain close to the max for chasing any draws or other reverse floats they could have in their range. On the river, we have blocker to this villain having any 2nd nut hand, I'd bet about 1/2 pot for pure value as the villain's stack depth can afford the call and they are not pot committed, we could get looked up by ace high, k high or a pocket pair. Food for thought, a good post flop bet sizing is 2/3 to 3/4 pot size, sometimes a situation may arise such as the hand you submitted where it'll be difficult for the villain to have a hand as we have blockers to possible combinations etc.. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

I have also completed and passed the cash game test. Q. 3 reasons why a player might make a big bet? A. To put a lot of pressure on opponents, to gain value from very strong hands, to protect against strong draws. Regards, currychip83

                  Hi, Hand Analysis Sitting on about 90bb stack depth this hand is worthy to open for the standard amount of 3x the big blind from under the gun (first to act). Post flop we hit top two pairs, this is a really strong hand and since we hold blocker to some of the possible Ax and Jx combos, I'd elect to bet about 1/2 pot on the flop and turn, the villains stack depth is shallow just shy of 30bb and they may be on a marginal draw with KQ QT aswell maybe a worse range of Ax..we want them to call.. On the turn taking card removal into account, it's unlikely they are holding one of the combos of 9x.. Around 1/2 pot bet sizing maybe would have got one more street worth of value. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

                      Bankroll Builder - Next Step

                      Hi Cannon,

                      Thanks for the reply and instructions on the next installment of Bankroll Builder. The only question I have right now is how do I earn VPP points? I know what FPP's are, whats the difference and can I earn these with onl a $2 bankroll?

                      Im not quite ready to make my first deposit yet, still learning and I hope I dont loose this $2 as quick as the last one :0) but if I do then as you've said just post the hands and then do you just apply the next $2?

                      Thanks,

                      currychip3

                          Bankroll Builder Promo - 3rd Issue Hi Cannon, I really didnt expect to be replying to you asking for the next part of th bankroll builder so soon. I feel like I've let you down after this hand. Ive done really well up to this and I have taken you advise and applied it in all games until this. Honestly I know I should have folded once the flop came with an ace but I really didnt believe this guy had one. Clearl a mistake but its all about learning from my mistakes right? Just so you know I'm not wasting your time, I placed in top 50 in the WCOOP Main Event freeroll on Saturday, 16966 started and I'm into round 2 this Sunday. So I do have potential to be good. Regards currychip83

                            Hi, Hand Analysis I'd definitely call on the flop given our pot odds, we'd roughly be breaking even on a call, although on the turn I'd fold..here's why. Let's look at all of the combos of likely holdings the villain may have of Ax: A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 A9 AT AJ AQ AK AA.. if you are to take all of the suits for each card that being diamonds, clubs, hearts, spades and think of all of the possible ways you could be dealt any of the above hands..the number will be 16 combos of each hand! So remember this, we are playing up against a range of hands and when evaluating certain board textures we could discount certain combos with card removal. (eg. paired boards, we have Ax board has A which reduces the likelihood of the villain having a combo of Ax etc..) Usually on these mono flop textures when a villain leads into us, their line could be indicative of trying to bet for value and protection as they do not have a suit. Although in some cases (player dependent) a villains lead could mean semi-bluffing to a flush with a high card blocker or a flopped weak flush. The villain is willing to play an inflated pot out of position to..looks like an ace on the turn.. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
