        What i'm wondering is in the situation of a overpair like 10 10 on flop should my action be to bet high or check and see what the turn and river will bring considering the fact that there are still 4 more overcards(16 outs) that they can hit. Especialy in the case of someone raising high and me calling the raise instead of me raising. And if i am raising what size the raise should it be(preflop) i finished the basic course and watch the clip Thank you for your time

            Hi Brzyzim! With TT on the button, I get a min-raise, then 4 calls. I'm going to make a standard raise and the key is the sizing of it. I need to raise to between 3X the previous bet or a pot-sized raise. With multiple opps in the pot, I tend to go for the higher end of this range, so I will raise to 135 (pot-sized raise). The flop is three unders with multiple straight draws and a flush draw. When it checks to me, I'm going to make a standard value bet. Bets postflop need to be made based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With four opps, I need to make a pot-sized bet of 820. I cannot bet less than this or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me... something that I need to avoid doing, as if I do this and they do outdraw me, it's my own fault that I lose the hand. However, this bet of 820 does something. It's over 1/3 of my remaining stack, which means that if I make this bet, I cannot ever fold. Due to this, I need to SHOVE the flop. I only want to shove when I need to make a bet that pot-commits me and I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something I want to avoid. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                Excellent! 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 completed and we will award you with your next buy-in. Best of Luck! umbup:

                  1. to put presure on a opponent, 2. to gain value from a very strong hand 3. to protect against strong hands. and this tutorial helped alot. i passed the cash quiz and have 2 hands i'd like advice on here i flop 2 pair with a straight draw all around, should i keep betting big or is the risk of someone hitting the straight high enough to keep it on check/small bet. here i hit the flush but got a second Q on the river, i called the bluff since it's a hand i consider i can't fold. did i do the right move or did i just get lucky? thanks for your time

                      Hi Brzyzim,

                      Hand#1: I think we can do both, lead at the flop or x/r. I think I would bet bigger OTT and fold to a raise. We can still get called by AQ, AK, Ax with spades. But when we are raised our two pair can be counterfeited by AJ and we need to be aware of the KQ too. OTR, I'd bet smaller just to get called lighter. Well played.

                      Hand#2: I think I would prefer a fold preflop. As played, after both opponents check we can bet the flop to try to pick up the pot right away or build a bigger pot incase we do make a flush against the BB if they check called with Qx. OTT, I think we need to raise so that we don't give a naked diamond that is higher than a 9 good odds to draw out on us. With the paired board and three diamonds on board against a raise with our 97d I would just call here and not re-raise back because we will hardly get called by a worse hand imo. Well done.

                              Hi Brzyzim!

                              The only VPP's that count are ones since your last bonus (this morning).. any that you got before then do not count.

                              Also, if you play even one cash tourney (mtt or sng), you will be INELIGIBLE for all future bonuses in this promotion. Also, do NOT transfer until you are done with this promotion.

                              Please play the 2NL FULL RING tables to get to 10 VPP's with this buy-in ONLY.

                              John (JWK24)
