              Hi adinaraluca! Interesting hand! Nobody showed any real strength preflop, nor on the scary AK flop. Your hand has little strengh as a value hand, but by being aggressive on the turn and river you got folds and won the pot. Recognizing when your opponents are weak and capitolizing on it is an important part of poker. Well doneumbup: However, one of the major characteristics of players at 2NL and playmoney is that they rarely fold. As a result, you need to be very careful about trying to win pots by bluffing. Normally you need the best hand at showdown to win a pot. Being aggressive and semi-bluffing for example when you flop a strong draw is good. Yet, the best strategy to consistantly be profitable at play money and 2NL is to never bluff actually. It doesn't work often enough. Moreover it isn't necessary. Because villains call down with relatively weak hands, we can simply wait until we flop a strong made hand then value bet every chance we get with a high likelyhood of getting paid off. Here your hand doesn't have much potential so checking behind unless your hand improves would be optimal. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                  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!

                    1) 2) - put a lot of presure - bluff players with decent hands - protect against strong draws - gain value from very strong hands 3) Done!

                        Hi adinaraluca,

                        I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

                        I think we have a clear fold preflop with J5s. Our hand is too weak to call a raise. We will be dominated when we hit TP and even worse when we do hit a flush we will always get action from better especially when the raise is coming from early position. Unlucky result though after we made trips.
