          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!

                Hi, I started with AK offsuit. I raised utg. And flopped two pair. Ofc I thought of the possibility of him hitting that straight but since I have raised under the gun I expected him to have something better than 10-10 or like A-(high kicker). So when he re-raised me I shoved. I feel like it was a bad move but in the other hand it wasn't really likely for him to hit the nuts. Maybe I should've called cuz I had a chance to get full house but I dont know. I would like your comments. edit: I would like to share my progress too. Seems like I'm doing ok in 0.01/0.02 and 0.02/0.05 I wonder if I'm just in a lucky run or I'm constantly increasing my bankroll

                  He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

                        Hi radres92, I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post Preflop, I would stick with raising 3x or even 3.5x from EP and look to raise smaller from the BTN and that is because when we raise from EP we have positional disadvantage against most of the table and we want to charge premium with our strong hands to be able to build the pot. OTT we have a really tough decision, this flop hits our range very strongly. We can have two pairs, and sets. But villain raises us and there are not many hands that can do this given how strongly our range looks OTF and especially after we bet the turn also. AQ and KQ might just call us down. AA/KK would be more inclined to 3bet us preflop almost 100% of the time. So when they raise this looks super strong to me. AK, QQ, JTs makes the most sense. Against that range we only have 24% equity. Stack size and his raise make it even more difficult. If we assume they raise instead then we need 31% equity to be able to call profitably but since his min raise also commits both of us then I think his minraise here is the same as a shove since when we call 0.34$ we still have a river decision to make. This is a really difficult spot and I think fold > call > shove is how I see the ranking of the decision on the turn given the action, flop texture, and positions. 1,100 is too small of a sample to consider so I wouldn’t put much emphasis on results, but never the less keep up the good work umbup:
