        Hey Raiser! I've watched the video and passed the basic course with 81%. Still I might want to read the "Entering the Pot", "Calculating Outs" lessons again to score better. umbup: Here the hand that I played at a play money table. In this hand, I won the pot. But still I want to know whether my decision is correct. Decision I made is to call all in against opponent at the flop. The reason behind this decision is, I had a good chance of having a flush. And there are no pairs in the community cards to expect a fullhouse from opponents. Please let me know whether calling all in is a correct decision on such situations. Also, advice me if anything wrong with it.

              Hi, Hand Analysis Making a raise pre-flop to isolate one of the limpers may win the pot uncontested, but let's factor in that reginaldo and MTTank44 have a really deep stack and can pretty much call our raise while having the benfit of being in position on us post flop. This hand isn't really a value hand and no where near the top of our range, so I'd avoid inflating the pot out of position. Post flop, even though we have the intiative, this is a middling board texture and will hit so many different combos of holdings...so raising as a semi bluff will generally only get action from hands that currently beat us, we'd pretty much be risking our entire stack to win about 40% equity share back versus a range of 9x...which is a close call, I would have preffered to cal smomg lead bet to keep all of the villains range in the pot...some of which may be inferior flush combos, high card combos etc... Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

                  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.

                    Raiser, I have watched the video and passed the course. Here are the three reasons why a player may make a big bet. - To put pressure on an opponent. - To get value from their made hands. - To bluff people off decent hands. Here is an interesting hand I played on a NLHE table, where I'm on BB holding two trash cards. I tried to bluff UTG and he didn't give up until he see all the community cards. Then I again bluff him with a higher bet after the river and I won a big pot for nothing. Since I rarely try bluffs, is this kind of bluffs risky to try?

                        Can I make a small deposit to my account now? Will it disqualify me from the next stages of this promotion?

                            Hi, Hand Analysis Sitting on a 25bb stack depth facing an UTG limper we could stab at this flop as this board texture can plausibely hit our BB option range, but expect to be called atleast two streets by high cards combos and flush draw combos, all of which have a more equity versus our hand. Your bet sizing was perfect on the flop and turn, it helped to buld the stack to pot ratio for a river jam if we do not complete, betting half pot gives the villain proper pot odds to hero call...going all in on the river will generate more folds, afterall we have no showdown value with 6 high...so let's make it difficult on the villain. Brave bluff and well played! Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
