        Hand Question This hand was close, and I only won on the river. Should I have entered the hand? I knew they were playing loose, but should I have still folded pre-flop? Also, was it a mistake to push all in? Also, I've completed the basic course and watched the intro video.

              Hi tyrantrex! A6o is a decievingly weak hand, especially in multiway pots. Ask yourself what are you hoping to flop? You won't be flopping a flush draw. You won't be flopping a straight draw. If you flop a 6 it will rarely be top pair. And if you flop an A usually one of two situations occur. Either the ace scares the villain and they fold to a bet meaning you win a small pot, or the villain has an A with a better kicker than yours and you end up losing a big pot. I prefer just folding this hand preflop. With so many players I would prefer something like a pocket pair or suited connectors or a suited ace. Something that can flop a big hand. Note: people do play very loose at play money (and 2NL). If you play tight, then you will more often have the strongest hand in the hands you play. This is exactly how we can beat them. By playing equally as loose as the others, you lose this advantage. Tight is right Now, as played, you min-raised preflop. Ask yourself what are you hoping to accomplish by raising? Is your hand strong enough to be raising for value? If it was you should raise more in order to build the pot as well as to get some folds to help protect your hand. Or are you raising as a bluff? If so, you need to raise more to get everyone to fold since that is the only way a bluff can succeed. In other words your mini-raise does nothing to help you. It only builds the pot in a very marginal spot. As played, on the flop you should fold to the bet. You have very little hope of improving. The risk is just not worth the reward. At the 2NL real money tables, play is much tougher. Making all in reraises postflop without a strong hand is a quick way to lose your bankroll. Try to be patient and wait until you have a strong made hand post flop before committing all your chips. Preferably you want to have a set or better. 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.

                  Completed Next 3 Hey, I've watched the video. A big bet can be used to: 1) Put pressure on an opponent with a meagre holding to fold. 2) Bluff an opponent off their hand by representing a stronger holding. 3) Gain value from our strong hands, like a flopped set. 4) Protect our hand against a strong draw. An over pair of aces on a JT4 flop possibly. Here's my hand for analysis. I may have overplayed my KQc, but I thought since I had an open ended straight flush draw that I would've had a good amount of outs. In the end, I only had a pair of queens. What'd I do right? What can I improve? Also, I have already completed the cash game course. Thanks

                    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 tyrantrex,

                      I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

                      With our hand, I am definitely cbetting this flop. We can win with K high when villain folds as they will miss a good amount of the time on this board as its fairly dry, but more importantly we have barreling opportunities OTT.
                      When we bet the flop, we can bet many turns: A, K, Q, T, maybe a 9, and all clubs. Basically we have two overcards and backdoor straight and backdoor flush which can keep us aggressive in the hand. As played, I think we can go for thin value OTR and fold to a raise. I don't like checking the river too much in this spot because we might get bluffed and I hate to be x/c-ing the river in this situation.

                            Hi, Hand Analysis Did you have any reads on flyingspades? I would have entereed this pot for a raise with the intentions of folding to any 3bets made from tight villains pre-flop, we are entering the pot from early position which in creases the likelihood of a better range of Kx or Qx being dealt and let's also factor in premium pocket pairs AA KK QQ JJ TT. Post flop, it's hard to get a way from two pairs, we are ahead of some hands however we only have one blocker to a potential holding they have, KK. All these spade combos could easily be within a tight 3bet range , these premium pocket pairs are also handes they'd be willing to play for stacks with AA (with a stray spade) KK JJ QQ (with a stray spade). I'd ultimately be basing my play on the villains tendencioes from previously played hands...there is absolutely nothing wrong with bet folding a strong have versus a villain that hasn't show mcuh aggression.. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
