              He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

                Hi saintastro! With TT in MP, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper or to 100. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, as this helps to conceal the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something that I need to avoid. I see a 6-way flop that has a pair. When it checks to me, with only one opp behind me, I'm going to make a standard value bet. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4+ opps, a standard bet is a pot-sized bet and with this being well over 1/3 of my remaining stack (meaning that I'm pot-committed), I'm going to shove the flop. I cannot bet less than this or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to outdraw me. If I give them the right odds and they do outdraw me, it's my own fault that I lose the hand. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    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.

                    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.

                        Hi, Hand Analysis After 3betting an early middle position open and a flat caller all we can do is call off their remaining chips as we have the best starting hand in NLHE! One thing though, I would have made the 3bet sizing 20c to 24c total, the real value will be made from villain2 as they have a bigger stack than us, we want a big enough pot built pre-flop to help ensure the stack to pot ratio is set up post flop as we are both sitting deep. Unfortunate outcome to this hand. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
