        Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
        Should I raise more pre-flop with kings?

                Hi 37growler! With KK on the button, I get 3 limpers in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper (60 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 or less based on the strength of their hand are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent.. something that I want to avoid. I also do not want to bet less than a standard raise, as this can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me... something else that I want to avoid. I now get a call, then a raise to 149 and a call. I'm going to re-raise here and the key is the sizing of it. A standard re-raise is to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise. HOWEVER, either of these amounts is over 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that if I make this bet, I'd be pot-committed and can't fold. Due to this, I'm going to shove. Once again, I don't want to bet smaller than a standard bet, as this can give the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Thanks for that, very helpful, although I've watched a lot of poker on TV recently and they always seem to raise to between 2 and 2.5 times the BB pre-flop.

                  I've also watched the video and passed the basic course. Cheers.

                    Excellent! 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 completed and we will award you with your next buy-in. Best of Luck! umbup:

                      Pair of jacks on button Hi, I've passed the cash game course. 3 reasons to make a big bet are a) with a strong or very strong hand pre-flop, to narrow the field. b) on the flop or turn when you have a made hand and you want to protect your hand against anyone drawing, i.e. you want to give them the wrong odds to call. c) to bluff, preferably on a draw heavy board. I had some trouble saving my real money hands, but what about this one on the play money tables. Although I won, there were too many callers, should I have raised more pre-flop? Thanks.

                          Hi 37growler,

                          You need to post a cash hand for this step, play money hands are no longer valid for this promotion. Please play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars.


                          Hope to hear from you soon.

                              Hi 37growler! The replayer is really picky about spaces, so if there's an extra one at the beginning of a line or especially in the header, it won't take. with a really bad hand in Q5, I need to be patient and muck hands like this when facing a raise as I only want to be calling raises with better hands and the only ones that contain a Q are QQ and AQ. Patience is a huge key in playing poker and I need to be able to muck hand after hand until I get a playable hand. John (JWK24)
