        Okay, here I am. I watched the video, then played some hands in play money rooms, here's one of them: As you can see i called pre-flop with A5, then KQJ appeared so I decided to build a pot and wait for 10 in turn or river to make a royal straight. Question is simple: Was i doing this right, or entering the pot with A5 was to risky? And for Poker Basics course, I went through all the lessons here, but unfortunately I failed Poker Assessment quiz at the end, so I will let you know in about 6 hours if I passed another one.

              Hi Knagh! The first thing that I see here is even before the hand starts. Whenever I sit at a ring table, I always want to wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over is a huge drain to a player's bankroll and is something that I need to avoid. With A5, I'd like to immediately muck here because it's a bad hand, but since the blind was posted, I'll check and hope to see the flop without putting another chip into the pot. I flop a gutshot and an opp bets into me. Here is how to figure out whether it's profitable to stay for a draw or if I need to fold. First, I need to get my pot equity if I call. I need to put 10 chips into a pot that will be 90 chips (11.1%). I have four outs to the straight, so from the rule of 4 and 2, each out is worth 2% equity to the turn, so my outs are worth 8%. Since my pot equity is higher than my hand equity, I expect to LOSE chips if I call, so I need to fold. If my hand equity was higher, then I'd call, as I would then expect to gain chips from calling. I definitely do not want to raise here, as I have absolutely nothing but A high. I want to be betting and 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! Here I am again! 1) There is the hand: I'm not sure if it was right to call K10 from UTG, fortunately i won, but is it a good move long-term? 2) Player might want to make big bet: *To bluff and force opponents to fold decent hands. *To protect from strong draws *To put a lot of pressure on opponents 3) I have some troubles with Quiz, when i try to take it there pops up a window like "You passed another quiz recently. Please wait and try again later", but the last quiz I passed was Poker Assessment around week ago. What should I do?

                              Hi Knagh

                              I think KT is generally too weak a hand to be playing from UTG at a Full Ring table. The chances of someone having a better hand and raising are so high.

                              However, if you have seen that the table passive with little raising going on, then I don't mind limping with a hand like this and hoping to see a cheap flop.

                              You play the flop and turn well and on the river you hit your top pair

                              Since nobody has shown any interest in the hand, you should be very confident that you have the best hand. To try and extract most value from people who have worse Tx hands or 3x and hands that think you're trying to bluff, I'd make a bet of about $0.08. I think your opponent will call equally as often facing a $0.02 bet or a $0.08 bet.
