        In this hand i started off with 2,2 and since i had a low buy in i thought to call the raise in the preflop and continued to raise after i got the Q,Q and 2,2 pair and won with the full house. Was it the right move to bet big early on or should i have folded?

          Video problem

          Hello. For some reason the getting started video would not load, but through following the bankroll builder faq i learned to use the hand replayer and posted my hand. If there is another way to watch that video kindly direct me to that. I'am currently working on passing the poker basic course.

                Hi sabih1992! With 22 in the SB, I get 3 limps then an abnormally large raise to 66. A standard raise for this opp would be to 3BB+1BB for each limper or 12 chips. I need to fold 22 in this spot and here's why. First, I cannot call to try and setmine, as to setmine, I need to have 15X the bet in both my stack and the opp's stacks. I don't have that many chips, so calling is not an option. I also do not want to shove here, as 22, while it is a pair, is marginal-at-best. Any card that the opp has that pairs will beat me, so this is not a good option either. Therefore, the only option left is to fold and I will do so and wait for a better spot. If I did see the flop with chips left (which would never happen as I need to shove or fold preflop), I cannot bet this flop as there are 3 coordinated overcards and I should be behind here almost everytime. I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    Hello. I have answered 11 questions of the poker basic quiz correctly but it says that i have still failed because it is only 69% but 11 out of 15 equals to 73% therefore i should have passed. Is this a fault or do i have to take the quiz again?

                        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!

                            First reason to bet big is to be able to bluff. 2nd reason is to get value from my made hands and 3rd reason is to put pressure on my opponents.
