              Hi mirkom0! The first thing that I see here is before the hand even starts. Whenever sitting at a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over to start playing immediately is a huge drain to a player's bankroll and something that I want to avoid. With 67o and 6 limps in front of me (the posts count as limps), while my hand is not strong enough to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper, it does have some potential and since the blind was posted, I'm going to check and hope to hit the flop. If any of the opps behind me raises, then I need to muck. I totally miss the flop and when it's checked to me, I'm going to check and hope to see a free turn card. When an opp makes even an abnormally small bet on the flop, I need to fold because I have nothing. The reason that I say abnormal bet is that postflop bets need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture and with 4 or more opps in the pot, a standard bet is a pot-sized bet. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    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 complete and we will award you with your next buy-in.

                    Best of Luck!
