            Hi, I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post Hand #1: AK is a strong hand. I want to open raise for value. I'd make it 150. As played, we should be checking the flop. We have missed the flop that has some draws with multiple opponents left to act behind us. Hand #2: I would consider folding to a raise with a weak non suited Ace out of position. But considering there are many opponents in the pot we are getting tempting odds to call. As played, I would look to play a small pot with Top pair weak kicker. I think x/c once OTF, and small bet OTR is fine. Hand #3: I generally don't advocate limping into pots. Here with ATs I would raise to isolate the limper to 200. As played, flop/turn/and river lines look good to me umbup:

                Yea - will do. I can´t believe I have failed it like 6 times, even after reading the courses a few times through. I try to do it without any help and without reference so I´m sure I know it. I must have some wrong things stuck in my mind. Frustrating.

                    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.

                          More betting earlier? Yep - left the door open. But I don´t think he would have folded either way. Although an earlier bet would not have made a difference and only could have helped me. Maybe I just answered my own question. Please advise. BTW - that hand wasn´t so much "interesting" to me as it was frustrating.

                              Hi 546f6e6c6572 Preflop, you definately want to 3bet preflop here. Firstly, you are facing an utg raiser. Raises from this position are typically strong hands such as 88+ and AQ+. There is a good chance you will get called or even better 4bet. Thus raising builds the pot for you. Secondly, there are 5 people left to act after you. Big pairs play best against a single opponent. Calling as you did risks getting a chain of callers which will make for tough postflop play, whereas raising helps to isolate the original raiser. As played, the flop is unlikely to have helped either of you. Calling or raising is fine here. AT 2NL, I raise every single chance I get with my strong hands and would have raised here as well. On the river, I would fold to the large bet. Large bets on the the river are almost always strong hands. The risk is not worth the reward unless you have a good read/notes on the villain indicating that they would do this with less than a full house here. The important part to take from this hand is the preflop and flop. You missed opportunities in two spots where you were surely ahead and likely to get called. GL and have fun at the tables!
