              Hi pekmansick! With TT from UTG (or any other hand that I'm going to play), I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, I will raise to 150. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, as this helps to conceal the strength of my hand. 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 want to avoid. I see a 3-way flop with all undercards. When it checks to me, I'm going to make a standard value bet. Bets post-flop need to be made based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 2 opps, a standard bet is 2/3 pot, so I will bet 433. Once again, I don't want to bet more nor less, so that I can help to conceal the strength of my hand. The turn is a Q and the opp checks again. Here, I'm going to check behind and see a free river card, for pot control. The river is another overcard and the opp checks again. Since my hand does have showdown value, I'm going to check behind and go to showdown. I don't want to risk betting and letting the opp then bluff me off what could be the best hand. The key in this hand is to make standard bets. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                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. 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:

                      3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet
                      1) to put pressure on opponents
                      2) to protect against strong draws
                      3) to bluff people off decent hands
