        Hi I did everything as you asked. On this hand I'm curious about 3 things. 1. Did I make the right choice when just calling the pre-flop raise? 2. Did I make a good re-raise on the flop? 3. Did I make a good fold when everyone went all in?

            Hi kruno_vk,

            I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

            Preflop I feel reluctant to call with QJs when I see an open raise and a 3bet infront of me then again this is play money so we can expect to see alot of crazy things. The main note however is what happens post flop after we have called the domino bet effect preflop. I don't like the raise OTF with just TP and weak Jack kicker. I would prefer calling and trying to get to showdown as cheaply as possible. Sick fold you found there

              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! flophitter umbup:

                1. In this hand I'm curious, is the right thing just to call preflop or just fold? 2. On the turn small blind bets and I call because I thought he was trying to take the pot and I had position on him( I had the assumption the guy behind me will fold because he checked on the flop) but the guy behind me raised and totally messed up my situation and I decided to fold because my hand ain't that good. Was that the right decision? List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet? 1. To get value from strong hands 2. TO put a lot of pressure on opponents 3. To protect against strong draws Quiz done.

                    Hi, Hand Analysis It would be the correct play to fold as we would need about 20 to 1 pot odds to profitably call in this spot to set mine, however we can mix up our game and flat call without proper pot odds from time to time (depends on villains tendnecies). Post flop, I would have checked on the flop for pot control just as you did, but I would have folded to any turn bets made..generally a early poistion range will have a lot of Kx combos AK KQ KJs KK AA and a loose small blind range will have many inferior holdings coupled with strong combos. We can't really be bluff catching as there are 16 combos of each of the hands mentioned above...that is a lot of hands. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

                      Thanks for the answer.
                      Well I called because that guy was raising a lot, and he couldn't put me on a certain hand on BB so decided to give a shot at it.

                            Hi kruno_vk, That's great news! Once those VPPs filter through to our admin systems your third Bankroll Builder bonus will be processed and it will be in your account shortly thereafter! Now to earn your fourth and final bonus, keep applying the principles you have learned at the same tables as before until you have earned a further 10 VPPs, counting from when you receive this latest bonus. If you lose your bankroll, please post the losing hand(s) for analysis. As ever, if you have any questions we are here for you. flophitter umbup:
