            Hi makstrudla, I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post I like raising with 99 here but there is no need to make it that big. We can do 3x +1bb for every limper, so 120 would be fine. When we raise too big we force our opponents to fold marginal hands and continue against us with very strong hands. With the money in the pot and the money we have behind we are obviously stacking off with a set here on a wet board umbup:

                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!

                  Hi, I passed the cash quiz and the answers are; 1. To get value from very strong hands 2. To protect my hand from draws 3. To bluff decent hands out Here is my hand,i played very stupidly i know :/

                        Hi makstrudla! This was a tricky hand! With all the small raises both preflop and on the flop, it is understandable that you got drawn into the hand. Preflop I would have raised 3bb plus 1 bb for the limper making it 8c. Once you get min-raised and action from two opponents you need to be very careful though. Calling the mini 3bet preflop is fine though. The flop is ok for you since it gives you an open ended straight draw. However there is a ton of action on the flop. You are actually getting decent enough odds to call the raises up to the point where V2 moves all in. His line looks very strong. Presumably he has either a set or QJ. I suggest folding. The main reason to fold now is that you are risking your stack in a spot where it is unclear if you are drawing to the best hand. If someone has JQ, you are drawing dead. So, we don't really know how many, if any outs you have. Fold and wait for a better spot. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
