                Hi jacko21297! With a total trash hand in 74s, I get a limp in front of me. I need to immediately muck here. Just because I have an ace or suited cards does not mean that a hand is playable. Patience and waiting for situations where I'm ahead is a very large key in playing poker. If I saw the turn (which I would not), I cannot bet here. There is 4 to a straight on the board and having only bottom pair, there are way too many cards that can beat me. I only want to be betting when I'm ahead, not when I know that I'm way behind or drawing dead. The key here is to muck bad hands preflop. Not doing so will cost me a large number of chips in the long run. 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!
