        small pocket pair play Hi Coach, here is the hand that I play in the late position.I was plan to see the flop cheaply and if I flop a set then I can win a big one.So when the gay raise me up, I'm very happy to reraise him but I don't want to scare him away by all-in.Since he is sticked to the pot deeply I raise all-in on the turn to finish the battle. PS: I've finished the quizz. Cheers!

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

            Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of just limping in (calling the big blind) pre-flop, but it's just about acceptable in playmoney games. Here it's fine to over-limp when someone else has called, and you can also call when it gets minraised, as you have a great price to go set-mining in a multiway pot.
            The flop comes J92 so you made your set. When a couple of villains check, making a fairly large bet for value is good. You can usually get action in a multiway pot, as someone must have something they can call with, even if it's just a draw, like QT. Here, a villain minraises. I definitely like re-raising, in order to set up a shove on the turn, or even get it in on the flop. Don't just click it back with a minraise though. Use the bet-slider to multiply the bet-size to 2.5 to 3 times the size, in order to price out the draws. When villain calls, there's 156 in the pot and you have 130 behind, so it's easy to go all in for value. Villain must feel pot-committed, because he calls with worse and you drag the pot. Nice hand!

            Hope this helps!

            Cheers,
            Arty

              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.

                List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

                To put a lot of pressure on opponents
                To bluff people off decent hands
                to gain value from very strong hands
                to protect my own hands against strong draws

                  For this hand, do I flod too soon? Since he didn't bet the full pot,should I reraise or call to see his action later on instead?

                      Hi AraleHey! Opening with QQ from under the gun position is fine. When you get called by the big blind, we need to ask ourself what hands might he call with. Any ace, two face cards, pocket pairs and suited connectors seem possible. Without a read, it is hard to say. On the flop, there are two overcards with an A and K. This is not good for you. Usually if someone flops a monster hand, they would check here and let you bet. However, any Ax or Kx hand would probably lead out with a bet. All we know for sure is that we are going to have a difficult time on the remaining streets. We wont be able to bet with confidence and most likely will be forced to fold or lose a big pot. Folding as you did is great - well done!umbup: Many beginners have a hard time folding great starting hands like QQ when we get a bad flop. Learning that lesson quickly looks promising. Keep it upumbup: GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                        Hi again!

                        I forgot to mention something. Please stick to Full Ring tables only for the rest of the bankroll builder promotion. If you play on other formats such as 6-Max, you may make yourself ineligable for the remaining money! Full ring is easier to learn on as well
