            Hi quickscope3,

            Your hand history must be converted by using the hand replayer as per instructions in post #3. No other hand history format is allowed.

            Hope this helps!

                  Hi quickscope3! Firstly, I noticed that you paid the big blind out of turn. For you own sake, never do this! It make seem like it is only 1 bb, but these small loses add up to be a big drain on your bankroll. Check the "Wait for BigBlind" box. Then use the time to start building reads on your opponents. As played, you are dealt 33 and are in early position. Small pairs do not play well post flop unless you flop a set. Normally I would recommend folding them preflop from early position. Here since you are already in the hand, I would check behind and try to see the flop cheap. When set mining, we want to see the flop as cheaply as possible and with as many opponents as possible. This gives us the best chance of winning a big pot the few times we flop a set (implied odds). When we take a speculative line, then we can easily check-fold everytime we don't flop a set. This is a small risk, for a potentially big reward. You elected to raise. This line has merit at higher stakes where we expect most players to fold preflop. It allows us to isolate the original limper. Raising also sets up a good situation where you can c-bet most flops and rep a strong hand. However, at playmoney and 2NL real money, we see that players rarely fold preflop or postflop. Therefore, running this type of semi-bluff as you did here will more times than not fail and cost us a a big chunck of our stack. In other words, this is a big risk for a small reward. As played though, firing a c-bet on the flop was fine. It will hopefully get anyone not holding an A or 10 to fold. Note, if you get called on the flop, you need to check-fold the rest of the hand unless a 3 comes. Don't try bluffing a new street. It just doesn't work often enough. Try to be patient at the tables. Big pots for big hands (sets or better) and small pots for small hands Gl and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

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.

                              Hi, Hand Analysis Post flop, given that there are two kings as well fives on the board, we can discount a full house from the villains range as with those cards present it reduces the likelihood of them having that range..When the villain lead into you on the flop, their range is going to be much weaker than if they check raised (which would be the standard)..if they did indeed have a range of Kx they would elected to check call to keep your entire range in the pot.. As for the river play, there aren't many worse hands that can call us here that have decent showdown value besides Qx or Ax.. checking back is fine. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
