            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.

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

            Cheers.

              Hi TaurSVK! With AA or any other hand that I'm going to open with, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard as that 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 want to avoid. I flop an overpair to a very coordinated board (but I have the nut flush draw). I now get an abnormally small min bet and a call. Bets and raises postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 or more opps, a standard bet is a pot-sized bet, so I will make a pot-sized raise here to 62. I don't want to bet less than this because I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. If I do so and lose, it's my own fault that I lose the hand. I now get raised to 58. A standard re-raise is to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise (if this is higher). Raising to 174 is well over 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that I'll be pot-committed if I make this bet and cannot fold. Due to this, I'm going to shove. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                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!
