        I've completed all 3 steps. Here's a hand from today's session. I think I played it well, not knowing anything about my competition other than they were all very loose pre-flop... My one question would be how could I have gotten more value out of the hand? Was my bet on the flop sized correctly? Was my all in on the turn too strong? Should I have made a smaller bet there to bring a few more players along to the river? I was a bit nervous about the flush possibilities though. Thanks.

            Hi, Hand Analysis A good rule of thumb when deciding what amount to bet is to make a standard sizing of 2/3 or 3/4 pot size. This will help to ensure the stack to pot ratio is built for future streets and enough value is made with our strong holdings. Your flop sizing was just a tad bit to small, given that this is a multi pot and there is a flush draw and straight draw present...it's possible one of the villains is holding one of these combos...let's charge them a bit more...our hand is so diguised. There are so many hands to get value from on this board texture. As for the turn, we have just over a pot sized bet, if we used a slightly bigger sizing on the flop the stack to pot ratio would have been set up perfectly for an all in on the turn...however I would have used a 3/4 pot bet..You got max value from villain9! Nice pot and nice hand! Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

              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:

                    Hi Stompingtom1

                    With 16bbs we really need to look for spots to either get our money in preflop with a 3bet shove or take the initiative and look to stack off with a TP hand or a strong draw. This looks like a really close spot to limp behind with QTo, I think I would prefer a fold and wait for a better spot especially that we have not invested anything into the pot already. The way you played the hand put you in a tough decision to call off with middle pair.
