              Hi Ak@sha81! With 99 on the button, I get 3 limps in front of me. I'm going to limp behind and setmine here with 99, since the stacks are deep enough. As another option, I could also make a standard raise with it here to 3BB+1BB for each limper (60 chips). I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, as this helps to conceal the strength of my hand. I either want to bet 10 or 60 here.. no more, no less. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something that I need to avoid doing. I see a flop with only one overcard. When it checks to me, I'm going to make a value bet. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 3 opps in the pot, I need to bet 3/4 pot (371 chips). However, this bet is over 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that if I make this bet, I'm pot-committed and cannot ever fold, so I would need to shove the flop. I really don't want to shove with a marginal pair if I don't have to, so I'm going to check behind here for pot control. If I bet, I do not want to bet less than 371, as doing so can give the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. If I do so and they do outdraw me, it's my own fault that I lose the hand. The key here is to make standard bets, both preflop and postflop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

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.

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.

                      1-To put a lot of pressure on opponents
                      2-To protect against strong draws
                      3-To bluff people off decent hands

                            Hi Ak@sha81, 22 Hand: I think you played this hand well. I like raising to take initiative in the hand and look to win the pot uncontested or with a cbet when called. I would prefer a slightly bigger raise something like 0.08 or 0.10 because of the dead money in the pot when the villain posts out of turn. When we are raised, we can easily let our hand go since we cannot call to set mine profitably with the stack sizes. AJ Hand: I would prefer raising myself preflop. I personally don't advocate a limping strategy. When we raise we have a better chance to win the blinds and play post flop more profitably with initiative. As played, I don't mind your line and with our stack size we are looking to put the rest of the money in. umbup:
