        Risk action or did it well? I completed small because nobody raised. Then bet with the second pair to see if anyone had something. Everybody checked the turn. Probably nobody had 6. When vilain_6 overbet 2.5X the pot, i thought he would fold if I check-raise, because he only calls with 6 or maybe with K and I don't believe he had these cards. It's a very risk action or I did it well? umbup:

                Hi, Hand Analysis Even though we are getting a decent price to complete our small blind, this mediocre hand will often yeild marginal results, especially since we will be at a positional disadvantage post flop versus multiple villains. There are several combos of Qx that have us out kicked and various other hands that have us dominated. We wont really feel comfortable betting for value if we flop top pair and we'll feel gun shy to call bets if we elect to try and take a pot control line. Post flop, we could take the lead as there are some inferior hands we can get value from, but I'd prefer checking for pot control.. even though a limping range is perceived as a weak range of holdings..Kx can certainly be in one of the villains range, 16 combos of each of these hands KT K9 K8 K7 K6 K5 K4s etc.. There is no need to inflate the pot out of position on each street by betting... I have a question, what better hands can we get to fold and what worse hands can we get to call? Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

                  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.

                  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.

                    Thx CannonLee. I agree that it's better don't enter with Q7off in small position and only do it sometimes, maybe less than 10%. But since I saw river, check-raise it's a good move in this situation? One more thing, the vilain_6 bluffed some hands before that.umbup:

                      Watched the Bet Sizing video. List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet? 4 answers are: 1)to put lot of pressure on opponents; 2)to bluff people off decent hands; 3)to gain value from very strong hands; 4)to protect against strong draws. My hand - 1/2 cent Real Money table: Villain_1 bluffed some hands before this one. So I decided to call pre-flop. Villain_2 had tight player moves before that. With top pair and flush draw, I check to Villain_1 C-bet. When Villain_2 moves allin, I call to catch Villain_1. But I think that I do wrong when I bet with the flush, cause I had to continue with my calls. My lucky was that Villain_1 is a real bluffer, so he goes allin with a straight draw!! Do you see another wrong moves?

                          Hi Alexandre,

                          Thanks for putting your thoughts down to this hand, it's good to see your thought process. I like a lot of what you did in this hand but I don't think you really took your opponents' stack sizes into account and I'll explain why this is relevant.

                          I don't really like playing K4s from early position. It is very easily dominated by better K-high hands and you are going to be out of position against most of your likely opponents, so this hand is going to be very difficult to play post-flop. I would just fold. However limping is not such a bad option if you think nobody is likely to raise. However you said that V1 is aggressive and likes to bluff. Because he is in late position, he is quite likely to raise the pot and you will be caught with a very vulnerable hand.

                          The best way to tackle people who like to bluff is to play tighter and make sure you hit strong hands and then let them bluff into you. Therefore I don't like calling his range as most of the time you are going to give up with K4 after the flop, which justifies V1's aggressive play. You are also out of position against V2, who likely has a tight range.

                          Another consideration is stack sizes. Both your opponents are short stacked with about 50BB. This means that it will not take much action after the flop before either or both your opponents feel they are committed to the pot. This means the hand will very likely go to showdown, which means that bluffing won't really apply, you'll need to have a strong hand!

                          You hit pretty much the perfect flop for your hand. Top pair with a big flush draw. I like that you checked and let V1 continue to bet. I also like the fact that you called the all-in from V2 to tempt V1 to come along. I think you have to do this with the intention of going all in on any turn card. Another strong option is just to reraise all in on the flop yourself, but then you might get V1 to fold, which you don't want!

                          On the turn with the pot at $2.13 and your opponent only having $0.43 left behind, just go all in, he will have to call anyway because there is so much in the pot and he has so little behind. It didn't matter on this occasion but don't fall into the trap of betting tiny with your very strong hands - you are not getting the most value from your hands and better players will realise this is often just a trap and will proceed very cautiously. Keep your bet sizing consistent whether you have the nuts or a bluff or anything in between.

                          Nice hand!
