              Hi Donrulz,

              I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post
              I notice you have posted the blind out of turn, ofcourse in real money games I would advice you not to and wait for the BB because you would be paying your blind twice in the same orbit and I'm not sure why you would do that unless you hate money

              Although we have hit this flop, we only have bottom pair and bad kicker. More importantly, it is hard for us to improve on later streets so I would fold the hand to the flop bet.

                Thanks for the help with analysis.I agree there with you!

                I had to push on the river with a bluff but it did not work :/

                  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! flophitter umbup:

                    Thanks for the 2$ bankroll

                    I played won a little but lost to a bad beat.

                    I had AA my opponent raised on button with K6 in hand! flop came 476 he raised me 0.20 I called and on the turn came K so he made his 2 pair n raised me 0.32 I pushed all in ofcourse he called and I lost my start up roll.

                    Unfortunately I Missed the instruction about posting one ring game hand here for analysis I only read it after I lost my 2$.

                    Anyway Thanks for the start up roll! much appreciated!

                        Hi Donrulz, Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you (hopefully we can do that even without the Hand Replayer version, if not you'll need to locate the hand from your hand history). He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step. Cheers! flophitter umbup:

                            Hi Donrulz! There are several very important points to note in this hand. Firstly, there are a bunch of empty seats at your table. This makes it tougher to learn and be profitable. I recommend adjusting the Filter in the Holdem Lobby to only show tables with 8 players. That way, when you sit down the table will be full. That is what I do Secondly, one of the primary leaks of players at 2NL is that they call bets/raises to lightly. In other words, they don't fold. Knowing this we can formulate a good strategy. Don't bluff, because they won't fold. And, bet/raise your strong hands every chance you get both for value and for protection. Here you have AA, the best starting hand in the game, and it is raised to you preflop. I prefer 3betting to about 18 (3x the original raise) both for value and for protection. Just calling lets the villian off cheap. The flop is all low cards, but they are suited and connected. The villain leads into you. Again, I strongly suggest raising here (about 2. the bet). This is for value since you presumably have the best hand and for protection incase he is chasing a draw. On the turn, the third flush card comes. The villain makes a pot sized bet. This should be a warning. Notice that it is only now when your top pair is really at risk that you decide to raise all in. This is the opposite of what we want to achieve. Now that you may be behind and are not drawing to the nut flush with an A of clubs, you should be careful. By giving up the opportunity to punish the villain by raising preflop, and again on the flop, you allowed the villain to out draw you. He had two pair rather than a flush, but the principle is the same. Remember, bet/raise your strong hands early and often. It works. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                              Hey Roland! Cheers! I was slow playing to get maximum value initially! but the flush draw was scary ..Guess I learnt not to slow play Aces ever again

                              Thanks for the help with your valuable analysis much appreciated!
