          Brilliant! 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! flophitter umbup: Team PokerSchoolOnline

                  Hi sciana80, Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you. This is normally done within 24 hours (but can sometimes take a little longer, especially at weekends) and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step. Cheers! flophitter umbup:

                    Hi sciana80, 3betting preflop is good for value and your sizing is great. The flop is quite dry with low cards. On flops like this that seem pretty safe, it is best to bet about half the pot. Your bet is too big being potsized. This risks getting value owned which means all the hands you are beating will fold, whereas only the hands beating you will continue. When your bet gets called, what hands can we put the villain on? If he is tight, he is probably only calling with hands he thinks may be good since the board doesnt offer any draws. So, A10, an overpair, or a set seem most likely. You are beating all of these except for sets. So, betting the turn is good. However, again, betting potsized can get you into trouble by folding out all the hands you are beating. When the villain calls again, we need to get concerned. You are still beating several overpairs, so I don't mind shoving as you did on the river. At 2NL we will get called in spots like this often enough to make it profitable. However, it was a somewhat unnecessary risk. Had you bet smaller on the flop and turn, we would have had more options on the river. You are going to lose money in a spot like this. It is just a matter of minimizing your losses. Note: With AA or KK on a wet board that offers flush or straights, don't be afraid to fold a single pair hand if facing alot of action from a villain. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
