            Did I played this hand right? player ndre.will 7 had the biggest stack and he played agresivly and raised all the time, and in most of the cases bluffed, but if anyone wanted to call he must go all in, not just this hand in almost every hand. My question is what is the best way to play against this kind of players?

                Hi Dzona85! The major point with this hand is the preflop action. K5o is a really weak hand which offers no real flop potential. You can't flop a flush or straight draw. A 5 will rarely be top pair. And if you flop a K, you risk losing a big pot to a villain with a K but a better kicker than yours. Here you are early to act. Your opening range should be the tightest from this postion. I suggest 88+ or AJs+. Folding is by far the best option preflop. You just won't win often enough to make playing this hand worthwhile. Secondly, regardless your actual cards, any time you are the first to enter the pot preflop, always do so with a raise (3bb). This will help limit the number of opponents, may win the pot by getting folds, and most importantly it will conceal the strength of your hand. As played, your postflop line was fine. However, having a weak pair of fives and a non-ace kicker is not a great hand. The best way to handle overly aggressive players is to wait until you have a stronger hand. When you flop top pair, two pair, a set or better, then you can gladly get all in. Focus on valuebetting strong hands and staying away from marginal hands and bluffs. Stronger starting hands make your postflop play much easier. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                    Brilliant!

                    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!

                        Answer to the question is:
                        1. To get value from my made hands
                        2. To be able to bluff
                        3.To put pressure on opponents

                        I ve done all three steps whats next?

                              Hi Dzona85,

                              Definitely raise with TT for value I generally don't advocate limping with hands into pots, I want to be the aggressor and come in the hand with a raise almost 100% of the time when I do decide to play a hand. As played though the bets seem small there is really not much to beat here so we should be looking to fold somewhere along the turn or river imo.
