    If you have some trouble hands we are here to help you with them.
    All you need to do is to follow our posting rules and our coaches are going to answer to your questions.

    Here are instructions on how to copy hands from PokerTracker 4 or Hold’em Manager 2 and how to post hands in our poker strategy sections:

    Here are more instructions on how to post hands on the forums correctly:

    Please remember that our forum has a character limit of 5000 for each post. If you exceed more than 5000, your page will just refresh without posting your topic or thread. If this happens, you can split your post into 2. 



    Posting hand histories on the forums for others to comment has become a standard practice over the years on the poker forums, yet not many players are actually doing it well.  You might ask yourself – what’s there to it? You post a hand, and people tell you how you should have played it, right? 


    When you post a hand, you should not be lazy; meaning you should not just throw out the problem, sit back and watch people bring you solutions on a platter.

    First of all, the more work you put into the presentation, the more detailed and useful responses you will get. But most importantly, the more detailed you are in your analysis and assessment of your own hand, the more you will have learned from it.

    Many times the correct or the most reasonable play becomes apparent after you go through all the factors involved, step by step, in detail. 

    You don’t have to spend hours on one hand (although you could, and the best out there certainly do it).

    But instead of posting “this guy can have busted draws, I call” – post a more detailed analysis.

    Which draws exactly? What about his value range? The bet size? His tendencies, your range? And so on…

    You will take as much from posting a hand as you put into it. 

    It’s not hard, but it requires the correct mindset and some tips on how to do it.


    Mindset when posting a hand on the forum:

    After you ask a question(s), you should try to answer them yourself first. See here how to do this:

    IMPORTANT! Post the hand history first and the questions BELOW. In the screenshot, the user posted the questions and his answer first and then the hand, which is wrong. FIRST the hand, Question SECOND.

    After seeing the results of the hands, there is always something to learn (sometimes there isn’t), write it down! This is a great exercise you can do. What could you learn? You can learn about your opponents tendencies and how they play. Leaning and adapting based on showdowns, not some random stat or general idea about the game, is what differentiate good players from mediocre players. Check some examples: 

    After seeing the results, what did we learn? We learned that the opponent is really aggressive raising on the flop and he continues on the turn and river without any equity. What could we do differently after the next time? We can call him down lighter since he is very aggressive, and we should be more conservative with our cbet bluffs, if he is raising a hand like that, he is raising way too much vs flop cbets.

    After seeing the results from this hand, what did we learn? We learned that the opponent likes to slowplay his nutted hands so we need to be more careful calling a river raise after he checks back on the flop. In general, the call vs the river raise was not bad since he is an obvious fish, he could be overplaying 2 pairs like K7, K8 and even KJ. But you need to understand that it was a good call because the flop was checked around. If hero had bet flop, turn and river and still got raised, then it would be a fold, since river raises are the nuts the vast majority of the times.

    Learn below how to TAG your hand, use the right title etc.

    Post hands for coachings and/or that interest you. You don’t “have to”, but we do recommend posting 1-2 hands a day. If you want a hand answered in group coachings, you HAVE TO post it on BPC in the way described

    CO: 104.5 BB (VPIP: 19.57, PFR: 17.39, 3Bet Preflop: 11.76, Hands: 49)
    BTN: 197.5 BB (VPIP: 28.67, PFR: 8.39, 3Bet Preflop: 4.76, Hands: 148)
    Hero (SB): 218.5 BB
    BB: 110 BB (VPIP: 21.43, PFR: 14.29, 3Bet Preflop: 14.29, Hands: 14)

    Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

    Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K J

    fold, BTN calls 1 BB, Hero raises to 5 BB, fold, BTN calls 4 BB

    Flop: (11 BB, 2 players) J 6 9
    Hero bets 8 BB, BTN raises to 16 BB, Hero calls 8 BB

    Turn: (43 BB, 2 players) A
    Hero checks, BTN bets 41 BB, Hero calls 41 BB

    River: (125 BB, 2 players) Q
    Hero bets 156.5 BB and is all-in, BTN calls 135.5 BB and is all-in

    Q1:Should I be calling this flop raise?

    A1: I think I should call there because I have really good odds there and I can still be ahead of some of his draw’s with plan to check/fold the turn

    Q2: Should I be calling this turn bet?

    A2: No because, he might do it with already Flush completed like Td8d/Td7d/8d7d and I even dont have good odds vs hand like Adx, and even if he dont have Ad in his hand I wont be able to get value from his weaker holding witch he might make that kind of play like J9/99/66

    Q3: Should I be betting river?

    A3: I think he will fold all his weaker hands maybe except T high Flushes but It’s really optimistic thinking that he is betting there
