        Were my actions(bets especially) right or not?
        And what is the problem with hand replayer. I did everything right I guess.

          Hello, The summary bit is missing, and this is why it won't work in the replayer. Please make sure you paste the full Hand History into the replayer Cheers, Raiser umbup:

            I finally made that. Were my actions and bet sizes correct? On the pre flop I decided to open my hand with 4bet and then I decided not to re-raise on the flop because I got really good hand.

              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.

                Hi LetItGooo! With AQo from UTG+1, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper, so I will raise to 600. I want to keep all of my raises standard, so that the opps are continually guessing as to the cards that I'm playing. 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 flop top pair/top kicker in a 5-way pot and get an opp that makes an abnormally small bet in front of me. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 or more opps in the pot, a standard bet sizing is a pot-sized bet, so here, I need to make a pot-sized raise to 4800. I do not want to bet less than this or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to call to try to outdraw me. If I give them the right odds and lose the hand, it's my own fault that I lose. The turn should be a blank, but it puts a flush draw out there. With 2 opps in the hand, a standard bet is 2/3 pot, so when the opp makes another abnormally small bet, I need to raise by 2/3 pot (raise to 3800). Once again, I cannot bet less. If the opp calls both the flop and turn raises, then I'm going to check the river and hope to get to showdown. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                      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.

                      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.

                      Best of Luck!
