        In this video, I'm just wondering what someone else's approach would have been to this hand. Figured with the 7, 6 suited hearts I'd have a great start off. I took the quiz also!

            Hi fluffguy911! Small suited connectors such as your 76s here are best played as a speculative hand. We would play small pairs the same way. With speculative hands we want to see the flop as cheaply as possible, with as many opponents as possible and preferably in late position. With these hands we normally miss the flop and have to check-fold. However, the few times we flop well with a set, open-ended straight draw, or flush draw, we rate to win a big pot since we can stack big hands such as top pair or two pair hands. Therefore, the best line preflop in this spot is to just call behind rather than raising as you did. Raising hurts you because it just builds the pot without improving your situation in a spot where you are unlikely to have the best hand. On the flop, there are two jacks and two clubs. You don't have either of these. As I said earlier, with speculative hands, you should check-fold a missed flop such as this. Raising as you did does not help you since your raise is a bluff, yet it is highly unlikely that everyone will fold. On the turn your hand improves and the pot is getting big. You still do not have a strong hand since you only have middle pair. Check-folding would still be best. Moreover, let us look at your bet size. There is 450 in the pot and you bet 40. This is so small compared to the pot that it achieves nothing for you. A normal turn bet would be half pot or larger whether it is a bluff or for value. On the river, the Q is another overcard to your pair. It also completes the possible flushes. Betting more at this point will cost you a lot of money in the long run. You tried to bluff preflop and got a string of callers. Again on the flop, Again on the turn. You will pretty much never have the best hand here and betting so small will not induce any folds. Just check-fold in these spots and cut your losses. Remember, with speculative hands we want to see the flop cheap and check-fold missed flops. This creates small losses and big wins. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

              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!
