              Hi, Hand Analysis I noticed that you posted your big blind out of turn, try to avoid doing that, it can prove to be costly towards your long run profit. With all of the pre-flop raising action that ensued, there are several combos of Kx that eeasily hit this flop.. AK KQ KJ KT K9 K8 (16 combos of each of these hands) With a bet and a call ahead of us ... we made the correct fold, as we do not have the correct pot odds and equity versus a plausible two strong made holdings to continue in the hand. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

                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:

                  Was I right to play so aggressive? 1/2 cent real money table hand. This was a hand I was not sure if I played correctly. Regards

                    Did I get enough value or should I have been more aggressive? Was I aggressive enough?

                      Hello,

                      I have watched the video and three reasons why someone might want to make a big bet are:

                      1. To put a lot of pressure on opponents
                      2. To gain value from very strong hands
                      3. To protect against strong draws.

                      Regards

                            Hi, Hand Analysis With a flush draw present on the flop, there is going to be such a wide range of stray heart combos to get value from...soI'd bet for value and protection versus those combos. A sizing of 3/4 pot size would be a sufficient amount to bet as the villains are sitting relatively deep and can afford to call. On theurn we filled up with a fullhouse, I'd be looking to set up the stack to pot ratio as I expect one of the villains to call a bigger sizing to chase a flush or hero call with 8x, 1/2 pot will build the stack to pot ratio. On the river, it's hard for worse hands to call if we go all in, even if they had a flush... again our hand is so strong and some of their stray heart high card combos like X X X might shrug call a half pot sizing. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
