              Hi kang24! Before we look at your hand, I see you are playing 6-max rather than Full Ring. Please play only 9 man Full Ring for the duration of the Bankroll Builder promotion. Playing other formats will make you ineligible for any remaining buyins! Full Ring is the best place to learn the fundamentals. JJ is always tricky! In this spot, a read on the raiser would help tremendously. What type of range will he raise with? What range will he call a 3bet with? Is he passive or aggressive post flop? Without a read I would simply call behind and reevaluate on the flop. JJ is tough to play postflop because there are many overcards that can come on the flop. 3-betting may be profitable against some opponents, but if I were to 3 bet I would make it a standard 3x the original raise, about 825chips. This is problematic though because you are investing a significant amount of your stack and may have to fold on a later street. Raising all in as you did is problematic too since it will typically get you value owned. By raising so much, you create a situation where most of the hands you are beating will fold which means you win less than you could have. Whereas only the hands beating you will continue which means you lose more than necessary. This is very important once you get to real money tables. Most players would only call your shove with QQ, KK, AA and perhaps AK. Since shoving is too large a raise, and a standard 3bet is for too much of your stack, we again can see that calling the raise is your best option. It gives you options postflop and keeps the villain's range wide. Here you were unlucky wth the villain flopping a set, but the hand could have been played differently saving you some chips. In general try to win most of your big pots postflop with strong hands such as a set or better rather than getting all in preflop. 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!

                    What happens next. Pretty bad had gone over with this situation. Try to steal the pot with a pot sized bet on the flop from a miss and it turns out to be a worst scenario. Unbelievable... totally broke now. umbup: for this.. God Bless us ^^

                        Hi kang24! Interesting hand with plenty to learn from! Preflop you are in the best position on the button AND you have a decent starting hand. What are you hoping to achieve by raising 6bb? A standard raise would be 3bb. Big raises/bets tend to get us value owned. By raising so much, the hands you are beating will typically fold. This means you win less all the times you are ahead. Whereas only the hands beating you tend to stay in the hand which means you lose more than necessary when you are behind. Surprizingly enough your raise gets called by the sb and then the bb makes a mini 3bet. In a multiway pot that has been raised, this is normally a sign of a strong hand (QQ, KK, AA and AK) unless you have a good read on the villain indicating otherwize. This is a tough spot. You are getting great odds to call and have position. However, most of his range is beating you. Moreover, the sb is yet to act after you. Calling and getting raised by the sb would be very bad. Folding would probably best here, but calling is understandable. If your cards were suited, I would be happier calling. The main problem stems from your overly large initial raise. On the flop it checks to you. Again, you bet too large. I would bet 50% the pot on this board since it is unlikely to have helped the villain. Betting more creates a new situation where your betsizing gets you value owned. Since most of the villain's range consists of pocket pairs, I actually think checking behind would be better than betting. If you get raised again, you will have to fold. Right now you do not have a made hand so we should keep the pot small. Raising is only good if you think you have a good chance of getting the villain to fold. You get top pair on the turn. If the villain has KK, AA or AK, he is still ahead of us. Betting potsized creates the third value owning situation. Note, the villain 3bet your large raise preflop. Called your large bet on the flop. It is unlikely that he will fold to a new bet. I would prefer checking the turn now that you have some showdown value with top pair. This is not a good spot to risk your entire stack on a single pair especially with an uncertain kicker. Keep an eye on your betsizing. Remember the addage "Big pots with big hands, and small pots with small hands". In general you want to have a set or better before investing your whole stack. One pair hands we need to be more careful with. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
