    Hello vkool77,

    I think you will make it easier for the hand analyst if you would use the Hand Replayer(http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/replayer).

    Good luck at the tables!

      I think you played it fine and showed plenty of aggression preflop with your premimm hand which is good. The unfortunate thing about Play Money games is that you get many callers as was the case here. The flop came out very 'wet' meaning there were lots of draw possibilities for your opponents hand ranges, unfortunately for you one of them hit their draw in later streets. Unlucky in this case. You should try the Play Money games in the PSO Community Home Game Club where players take their play a little more seriously and the standard of opponents makes the games better for practicing and improving your game.

                    on this hand my hole card is a pair of 7. the question when i see the flop. should i make bigger bets then i did. because when the villain see the turn. i did another bet but he call. then river the villain made a straight. is there any better strategy to make him fold? here is the replay

                      please start a new thread in the basic poker hand discussion forum for each hand (with any reads, etc). that way the threads can stay on topic.

                          I am new but I have been reading on poker school online, that small bets are 1/2 pot, 1600 is big to me but only 20-25% of the pot, maybe if you increased to 3000 he may have folded, I get the feeling in both above videos that the player would have continued regardless of what you bet.

                          I am still figuring it out, I went up from 3000, to 83000 today in a tourney but then lost it all, I was still practicing what I have learnt and I had good cards but I still need to tweak it, so I don't lose as much as I gained.
