      I read on broodwar.de about pokerstrategy.com and just signed up, cause i played poker a lot with friends, but never wanted to invest money in internet poker.

      I got the 50,01$ (thx for the 1 extra Cent :) few days ago and started playing, playing, playing, cause i have a lot of free time at the moment. Im playing SSS and after a few ups and downs (~40$), i reached 68$ today, after i finished 4th place yesterday in a 100$ Rookie Freeroll (6$). I got the 100 Party Points 1-2 days ago and hope my rank will get updated soon, so i can read the silver articles and watch some videos.

      And i have a question about the SSS, it says, that u should bet 2/3 Pot if u got trash at the flop and u are against 1 opponent, who didnt bet. its the same if u have to bet first against 1 opponent, isnt it?

      Here is one of my hands:

      What should i do, if i dont hit the Q on the turn ?
      btw, i was a bad guy and played AQ in early position :D

      0,05/0,10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with Q:spade: , A:spade:
      Hero raises to $0,40, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0,40, 5 folds.

      Hero bets $0,60, MP2 calls $0,60.

      Turn: ($2,15) Q:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,85 (All-In), MP2 calls $0,85.

      River: ($3,85) 2:heart:


      Final Pot: $3,85

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP2 shows [ 4s, 5s ] a pair of Sevens
      Hero shows [ Qs, As ] two pairs, Queens and Sevens
      Hero wins $3.66 USD with two pairs, Queens and Sevens.

      yes, it's the same if you are out of position :) This specific bluff is called a continuation bet, and is quite profitable.

      Congratulations on the results so far by the way - keep going :)

      Welcome Quickben. :) I can't say much to the hand because I have no clue about tournament play. *g*

      Which makes my statement not wrong because someone with tournament skll would have seen that it is a cashgame. *lol*
