      Lesson 2

      1) I would raise AJs, AJo in blinds, if other players just call. (depends on, how many calls (only one i raise / more just call/check)).

      2) I have two examples:
      - first TT preflop raise
      - and the second QQ preflop allin

      3) Equity Win Tie
      MP2 46.32% 37.92% 8.41% AKo
      MP3 53.68% 45.27% 8.41% 88+, AJs+, KQs, AKo

      Welcome to the Course and Best of Luck. Good job! Homework #1 Done!

      Most of the weakness you wrote can easily be fixed by posting hands (analyzing your session). We will start writing feedback to your play. Usually negative feedback will put you into thinking phase and trying to fix all those leaks. It's almost the same as you lose money, you will remember it more than winning part. By this situation it's gonna be that negative feedback you gonna remember and try to avoid them next time.

      What about tilt? Do you adjust something against it? For example:
      Easiest way to fight against tilt is to set up stop-loss technique. Which means if you for example have lost more than 3BIs for a session then you just stop the session for some time. The BI amount is set up from your own results. Some may put it higher, some lower. Also after the stop you can spend some time with evaluation part to become better.

      Tight style is usually called playing selected hands. Like following the Starting Hand Chart. Aggressive should be also pretty clear that already the word says how you should be playing. But the problem playing aggressively is that you have to watch that you don't play too aggressive. Find good spots, find good targets. About The tight-aggressive strategy you can read in this article: "What is the Big Stack Strategy?"

      Hopefully you will enjoy the Course.

      Good job! Homework #2 Done!

      I guess you meant you would raise when there are some limpers? Which of course is totally fine, that kind of hand is totally strong enough for do it. But overall those AJo type of hands we don't want to play in raised-multiway pots being OOP on blinds.

      About Question #3:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    46.32%  37.92%   8.41% { AKo }
      UTG+1  53.68%  45.27%   8.41% { 88+, AJs+, KQs, AKo }

      Hopefully you enjoy the Course so far.

      Lesson 3

      1)
      preflop:
      Equity Win Tie
      UTG 50.78% 50.40% 0.38% KsQs
      UTG+1 49.22% 48.84% 0.38% 3d3c

      flop:
      Equity Win Tie
      UTG 26.46% 26.46% 0.00% KsQs
      UTG+1 73.54% 73.54% 0.00% 3d3c

      2) i have to call, cause if i call, the pot is about $1,13 big and i have to call only $0,22... 91 : 0,22 = 4,13 potodds (4:1)

      i have got 12 outs. and 3:1 odds and if the potodds (4:1) are bigger or equal then the odds i can call.

      3) Not really a good example, but i played this hand in my last session..

      Good job! Homework #3 Done!

      About Question #1:
      Preflop Equity:

      Equity Win Tie
      UTG 50.78% 50.40% 0.38% { KsQs }
      UTG+1 49.22% 48.84% 0.38% { 3d3c }


      Postflop Equity:

      Board: J:spade: 5:diamond: 3:spade:
      Equity Win Tie
      UTG 26.46% 26.46% 0.00% { KsQs }
      UTG+1 73.54% 73.54% 0.00% { 3d3c }


      About Question #2:
      There are several occasions on turn:
      a) If we take just odds for the FD and we take into account that all our odds are clean. Which means:
      Total Pot = $0,91 ; We have to Call = $0,22 -> According to that it means we are getting ~4,16:1 odds. For flushdraw we would need 4:1. Which tells us that we are getting perfect odds.
      b) If we consider the opponent having sets here:
      Which means we have to discount outs, for example 6 and also 3. Which means we have 7 clean outs so that means we need 6:1 odds. That tells us that we need ~$0,41 on river to make it profitable. If we expect the opponent being loose enough and being able to pay us no-matter what then we can do the Call here properly.
      c) We might even have overcards as outs or even 4 as a out:
      Although this kind of situation ain't that likely. I'd rather discount that one and either pick a) or b). Most likely towards Call.

      You are doing great progress, keep going!

      Good job! Homework #4 Done!

      This weeks homework was a bit easier. But the idea of that is to help you go through last weeks stuff if you didn't go through everything. Or either way maybe even read some more articles, watch some videos and of course attend in the coaching. What will also help for your game is the evaluation part of other members hands and of course posting your own hands.

      If you have interests you could try calculating the equity with a formula which you can use even on tables(either playing online or live poker):
      (Amount of outs x 4) – (Amount of outs – 8) = Your Equity

      About Question #3:

      Board: J:spade: 9:club: 8:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    41.41%  41.41%   0.00% { KsQd }
      UTG+1  58.59%  58.59%   0.00% { 7h7c }

      Hopefully this wasn't too easy homework for you.

      Lesson 5

      1) Have a look Link


      2) AK multi-way pot Link


      3) The VPIP of the opponents are not really high, they are quiet tight. So I guess, they have got probably good cards. We have got a flush, but not a good one.

      The range:

      BU 66.14% 66.14% 0.00% 7d6d
      SB 19.95% 19.84% 0.11% AQs, ATs-A8s, A5s-A2s, KQs
      BB 13.90% 13.79% 0.11% AJo-ATo, KJo-KTo, QTo+

      I would proably fold, is more safe.


      4) It is a dangerous board. There are a few straights and straigth draws possible. I would bet the flop onces, cause we have got an over pair. I would bet a lot, maby $2, to look where we are. If he calls, i going to check the turn.

      The range:

      MP2 34.28% 34.11% 0.17% JhJs
      MP3 65.72% 65.55% 0.17% QQ+, AKs, QJs, 87s, AKo, QJo, 87o

      He could have pockets like QQ+

      2) hm.. they are to fast in evaluating :D Link


      3) I would call the turn, cause we have got 2 pairs. If he is betting the river again, i would proably fold.

      The range:

      Hero 42.46% 39.13% 3.33% QhJh
      BB 57.54% 54.20% 3.33% AJs+, KTs+, QJs, AJo+, KTo+, QJo

      Re #3:

      I would say that folding is definitely on the tigther side. If we fold a made flush why are we even raising these hands preflop?

      I would either call to keep both in the pot or try to raise to isolate and protect.


      Re #4: Considering villain 3-bet and he is aggressive we have two options in my opinion and donking isn't one of them. I'd either ck/call to let him bluff or ck/raise (if he stacks off lighter).

      1 and 2 look good although you should try to provide more detailed answers for hands you reply at. It will make you think more about certain spots.

      Re #3: Do you think he will have hands like AK (that might 3-bet preflop). How about 33, can he not have that? Or even JJ/QQ?

      Good work so far, keep it up.
