          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!

                Got extremely lucky in this hand. I think in this situation I could've been a little less aggressive even seeing the result, but I wasn't giving my opponent the proper respect for hitting the straight. The fact he only called on the flop also threw me cause I was thinking maybe he had a two pair or suited connecters.

                Really, the range of hands was too big and maybe a better option was a bigger pre-flop raise or maybe even an all-in, cause he could think I'm some renegade aggro newbie looking for a big score, and any hand other than Aces is basically Christmas to me.

                Am I wrong? Half wrong? Three quarters wrong?

                  Hey there, You must post the hand in this thread (not a link) Instructions are in the video above. Cheers, Raiser umbup:

                        Hi, Hand Analysis Did you have any specific reads on this villain? As played everything was done perfectly, you raised the correct amount pre-flop, your contiuation bet sizing on the flop helped build the stack to pot ratio to go all in on future streets wheteher it be on the turn or river...when we get called on this flop a range of Tx is going to be such a small portion of the villains overall range, Qx AQ QJ QT Q9 JT KJ AJ there are (16 combos of each of these hands) all of which will call based on their pot odds and the fact that their stack depth can affoed the call.. Nice and nice pot! Well played. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

                          This was actually the first hand I was dealt when I took my seat. I had a few more hands where I folded stuff like deuce and something almost as bad unsuited then I got called for an IRL errand and had to leave the table. I didn't read much into the table pre-game cause no one saw a flop before I got dealt in, and I chose it solely because it didn't have any players with $3+ at the table, which I wanted(I also want more experience playing 6-seat tables)

                          Again, that call with a gutshot straight draw, no flush draw, and an ace threw me because I was thinking he would either fold(if he had A9/AJ or mid-range suited connecters, a hand I did not want him to improve.) or press me all-in, which would've been a tough decision. I thought I would get him off a scary board if he only had the intent of pushing small stack me around pre-flop with a decent but not great hand. I think I might've played it better, but at least I won and this didn't turn into a YouTube style disaster hand, which IRL would have guys like Norman Duke making funny quips about what that King on the turn could do to my chances.

                          But hey, now I know.....AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE!!

                          (Let me know if I need to submit another hand, I didn't play much cash game today but I'll have more opportunities tomorrow, especially since its Feb 1 and presumably time to start grinding to ChromeStar)
