          Well done menezes.melo! 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

                Good afternoon everybody! I present this hand for us to think about! Since I was the BB with a decent hand, I thought that shoving back after the bet of the villain. But I'm afraid that my amount of chips was too low to cause any effect on him, as he probably knew that I would shove back easily due to my stack. Well, I wait for someone for more experience to analyse this better and thank you in advance for giving your time to such a small player Daniel

                  Hi menezes.melo, 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. He will do this normally within the next 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. flophitter umbup: Team PokerSchoolOnline

                    Hi Daniel,

                    Your hands are a bit tied when you're so short stacked. This hand plays very similar to a typical hand in an MTT or SNG.

                    I think you did the correct thing by moving all in. KQo shapes up pretty well against a lot of different hands that the villain could have. Unfortunately for you in this case, he specifically had AK which has you dominated, that's just a bit of bad fortune.

                    Calling isn't great because you are then committed to the pot, so you'll have to get all in on the flop anyway because you would have so much of your stack invested.

                    Try not to get this short-stacked, auto top-up if you can and you shouldn't encounter situations like this too often.

                    Good luck at the tables!
