        Hi thanks for your message. 1. Done 2. I don't think I played this hand too well. Perhaps I should have raised more on the turn (perhaps more like 3/4 of the pot?) and perhaps folded the river. 3. Done. Look forward to hearing from you!

              Hi WhiteyBT! With a bad hand in J7o from UTG, I need to muck this preflop. When playing from out of position, I only want to be playing premium hands that I can raise with. The only hands that include a J or 7 in them that I would play from UTG and make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper with are JJ and maybe 77.. even 77 is weak from this position at the table and is one I'll muck preflop the majority of the time. When I'm the first one into the pot, I do not want to limp. If the hand is not strong enough to raise with, I need to muck it. If I saw the flop (which I would not), when I flop top pair/bad kicker on a VERY coordinated board with multiple opps, I'm just going to check here. With 5 opps, I'd need to make a pot-sized bet (standard bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture) and my hand is nowhere near strong enough to do so with. When any of the opps bets, I need to fold, as there are way too many combinations of cards that can have me crushed here. The key is to be patient and to muck bad hands preflop, especially when out of position. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  I think part of my issue that the play is sooooooo loose on the play money tables - with many players entering the pot and all ins on most hands by one or many players.

                  So I guess I've tended to play quite loose as well, like limping and hoping to make a big hand, with which I can call someone else's super loose all in. It's hard to put players on a range when they are playing like this. I am slowly learning the error of my ways

                  Thanks again for your time, really appreciate your thoughts.

                  cheers

                    Hey WhiteyBT!

                    You'll see the same type of player at any price level. I've even had the same ones in a WSOP Circuit game. They're everywhere.

                      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!

                          So close... 1. Arrggh... I think (hope) my play was ok here but I managed to lose most of my stack anyway. - I reraised pre flop with AKo. - I had top pair+kicker on the flop and, given the op's min raise preflop, I decided to slow play - a mistake perhaps? He then raised, I reraised (a bit light maybe?) and he called. - Turn comes - it doesn't look too dangerous - and I shove the rest in. He calls with draw options but no made hand. - On the river he hits his club and the flush. On reflection, I think his last call was probably bad as he didn't have the pot odds to make his flush (or a 10 for a straight). Interested to know if I could/should have played this differently to avoid this outcome!! 2. Big bets can be useful to: - bluff people off decent hands - gain huge value with strong hands or - to protect against strong draws. 3. Passed - 87%. thank you

                              Hi WhiteyBT,

                              I think 3betting preflop is a good play, I would rather make it slightly larger to 0.20
                              Flop is really tricky I think because when we bet there will be less hands that can continue.
                              When villain flats the 3bet I think his range would look like: AK/AQ/AJs, QQ/JJ/TT, sometimes maybe some smaller PPs
                              So on the flop when we bet we only get called/raised by AK/AQ, AcJc, QQ so a bet would fold out most hands that we beat, a check could induce a bluff but also most of his hands have SD value so I think they would check back more often than not. So perhaps a flop bet would be better to deny free cards.
                              If we are going to check, I prefer a x/c and not a x/r. Villain is not getting the rigt odds to call OTT. They have 12 outs (9 clubs + 3 Tens) so they need have 24% equity. They need to call 0.91 to win 2.48; they need ~27% equity to make the call. Unlucky.
