        Hand for Analysis: Slow players let me catchup on the turn from my BB I checked my BB to the turn and caught top pair (low kicker), and made a pot size bet. Two callers. Insignificant river. I bet again and got raised. Should probably have folded, but thought opponents would have bet something on the flop if they had anything.

            Hi luckyleafs! Q7o is a pretty weak hand, so checking your option in the big blind preflop is perfect. At play money and at 2nl real money, never bluff! You miss the flop so again checking is your only good option. On the turn you get top pair. However, as you noted, your kicker is quite weak. You can lead out as you did, nobody has shown any strenth so taking a shot at the pot is fine with top pair. However, if you get raised, you need to be carefull and should probably fold. I suggest betting a bit smaller, perhaps half the pot though. When you get two callers you need to slow down. With so many players getting to see the flop, there is a greater chance that someone has a decent hand. The river probably didnt help anyone. but since you got two callers on the turn, would recommend checking with the intention of calling a smallish bet letæs say half the pot or so. By checking we keep the ranges of the villains wide allowing them to bet with hands that you are beating. It also helps to keep the pot small. Your hand is not strong enough to be betting here for value. Moreover, by betting nearly potsized as you did, you create a spot where you risk getting value owned. This means that all the hands you are beating are likely to fold which in turn means you win less than you could have (with a smaller bet or letting them bet). The only hands likely to call/raise are the hands beating you which in turn means you lose more than need be. As played when the villain raises you here on the river, it is rarely a bluff. Folding is your best option. Having a single pair and with a weak kicker is not strong enough to warrant investing much of our stack. There is a poker saying: "small pots for small hands. Big pots for big hands." It works 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!
