          Hi,

          Hand Analysis

          We have just over a pot sized bet on the turn, I would have preferred to build the stack to pot ratio on the flop by making a slightly bigger bet sizing of 180 to 210...although there are not to many worse Ax that can call us considering we are holding top set (three of kind), I'd be looking to get value from Kx and there are plenty of stray broadway combos that have now turned equity. A good general rule of thumb when deciding to make a bet, is to make a sizing of 2/3 to 3/4 pot size...but let's keep in mind that 1/2 pot will have merit in some situations. Your turn play is giving the villain 3 to 1 pot odds on a call and they can certainly afford it based on their stack depth, the down side to making such a small bet is that it gives mediocre holdings close to a correct price to try and draw out..but as always we want to bet an amount that we think worse hands will call and this would ultimately come down to the villains overall tendencies and know hand ranges...


          Hope this helps.


          Kind regards,
          CannonLee

            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:
