                Hi DaChaari! With KK (or any other hand that I'm going to open with, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper (6 chips). I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, as this helps to conceal the strength of my hand. 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 want to avoid. I now get called, min-raised and that raise is called. With a premium hand, I'm definitely going to raise again and the key is the sizing of it. A standard sizing is to between 3X the previous bet (30) and a pot-sized raise (42). With multiple opps in the pot, I tend to go with the larger part of this range, so I will raise to 40. The times where I would shove is if the standard bet is over 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that I'll be pot-committed. Shoving when not pot-committed against better opponents will cause me to make all the hands that I beat fold and only the ones that beat me will call, which is the opposite of what I want to have happen. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  You've passed the basic test and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

                  Step Two

                  The Poker Basics test was easy right? Well, there's a lot more to learn on the road to becoming a profitable poker player.

                  Now study the Cash Game course and once you think you have it mastered 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.

                  Let us know as soon as you have passed the Cash Game Quiz and we will award you with your next buy-in.

                  Best of Luck!
