            You've passed the basic test and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

            Step Two

            The Poker Basics test was easy right? Well, there's a lot more to learn on the road to becoming a profitable poker player.

            Now study the Cash Game course and once you think you have it mastered 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.

            Let us know as soon as you have passed the Cash Game Quiz and we will award you with your next buy-in.

            Best of Luck!

                  This first hand, I was pretty satisfied with the results. But this second hand, I don't know how to play As 10. I am a pretty agressive player as you can see but I think I had made a mistake when raising in the pre-flop.


                  • #10
                    I'm sorry if I sound impacient, but have I posted the Hand Replayer correctly? Looking forward for your response! Million Thanks,

                        Hi Matthew,

                        I like the way you played the first hand, but I think you could have won your opponent's entire stack instead of just most of it.

                        Opening KJs from Middle Position is a bit risky, but I prefer that players are aggressive so I don't mind this open. You have to be very careful not to get too excited when you hit top pair because KJ is dominated by AJ, AK and it is easy to lose a lot of money to those hands.

                        On the flop you are Out of Position and your opponent has a short stack. You have a decent hand but not yet a great hand. However because you already have a pair with an up and down straight draw, I would bet the flop bigger and be willing to go all in because the opponent has relatively few chips left. I would be something like 2/3 pot or $0.10.

                        The turn doesn't help you at all. I think both checking or betting small are OK. If you had checked, I would call a smallish raise and fold to an all-in, as you are probably only drawing to 10 outs (4 As, 4 9s and 2 Js) giving you only about a 20% chance of winning the hand.

                        You hit your second best card on the river. However I think it's very unlikely that villain has AK so you are very likely to be at least tying for the best hand (your opponent might also hold a K). Because your opponent only has $0.27 and the pot is a lot bigger than this at $0.44, going all in is the best play here. Whether you bet $0.15 or $0.27 isn't going to make any difference as to whether he decides to call or fold. You are only costing yourself chips when you get called by a worse hand.

                          I also like the way you played the 2nd hand.

                          You are right that AT is a strong hand but it can be difficult to play. You made a good raise preflop and I like your sizing.

                          On the flop you miss and your opponent leads into you. This is called a donk bet. Some people do this is a bluff, sometimes they do it with a draw, normally it's done with a mediocre one-pair hand, occasionally they do it with strong hands.

                          If you don't know anything about your opponent, I would just give him credit and fold like you did here. Your hand has relatively few prospects of improving, you have possible backdoor flush and straight draws, but you'll need to get lucky and pay another street of betting on the turn to see the river card.

                          If you know your opponent donkbets often, you could consider raising as a bluff, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with folding here and just waiting for a better spot.
