            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!

                  Here's the hand. I would just like to clarify a few things. First of all, I wouldn't usually call with A9s if someone has raised to 3BB, but in this case there were a few things I considered. I would have only one opponent, my cards are suited and one of them is ace, plus table was pretty boring and I was looking for an interesting hand to post here. Second, I assumed that my opponent had an ace-high hand like me, probably suited, or medium pair. I flopped a pair of nines with top kicker, and raised. He made a 3-bet on my initial raise, so I suspected he was defending medium or high pair from straight draw. I went for it. I raised again 3BB and this time he only called, at that point I was sure that he didn't hit a set on the flop, and that he probably has nothing, maybe trying to hit a flush on the river. I raised again, just to make sure he didn't have a queen and when he called I was certain I won the hand. I know it was a risky hand, but nothing much happened before that.

                    Hi CikaVlada! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the hand, it helpsumbup: Normally we need to be careful about playing aces with weak kickers as you said. The biggest danger is if we flop an ace. We need to be careful not to lose a big pot against a villain with a better kicker. I like to have a read on the villain before making high risk moves though. Making a move because the table is "boring" is dangerous. It can actually be a form of tilt. I think we can assume the villain raising preflop from late postion has a wider range than you give him. It will include Ax, pairs but also two broadway cards and suited connectors. A read would help define this better. You got a decent flop. Your best hope was a flush draw, but top pair top kicker is a good result. With single pair hands, I would suggest only going for two streets of value, not three. Note, the 1st bet is a bet, the 2nd bet is called a raise, and the 3rd bet would be a 3bet (or reraise). So, you bet the flop and get raised. This tends to polarize the villain's range. Either he has a weak hand or a very strong hand. A read would really be good now. Often we should fold, especially being out of position. Calling can be fine if we know the villain bluffs, semi-bluffs a lot. The K on the turn is a scare card for you both. We can lead out here expecting the villain to fold most non-K hands. However, your bet is much too small. Ask yourself, what am I hoping to achieve by betting? If you want him to fold, you need to be about half the pot. If you are betting for value, you need to bet more as well since anyone willing to call the tiny 3bb bet into a 28bb pot will call an even larger bet. Moreover, your small bet actually looks like a blocking bet with a weak hand. A good player will notice this and start raising big. I would prefer to check down the river. Now there are two overcards to your nines and both are in the villains range. Try to get to showdown and hope your hand holds. He seems to like his hand and you are not beating much with 3rd best pair. If we are going to bet, then we should again be betting at least half the pot. This could get hands like 1010, JJ that are beating you to fold. Betting so small just inflates the pot in an uncertain spot. Good stuff! You are thinking in the right direction Roland GTX

                      Thanks for the encouragement and advice. I'll pay attention to things you pointed out. I guess my betting was definitely not wise, and I do know that this is something that can be called a very speculative hand. And that's exactly the reason I played it and posted it, so I can get feedback on the betting value and determining the opponents range.
