Big Hands Poker Challenge

Here are some tips on how to play
  • Learn from the advice given by the Pros
  • Consider your bet-sizing for each hand
  • Observe your opponents at the table and their actions
  • Try to win as many chips as possible before leaving the table
  • Check your score against other Poker School members in the Leaderboard
  • Keep playing to improve your score

It's all about winning the chips!

There's no better feeling than leaving a poker table with your opponents chips in the bag. When we play hard, make the correct decisions, and have a little luck on our side poker can be really profitable. But do we always make the right decisions to maximise the amount of chips we can win? Bet too big and everyone folds, bet too small and we don't maximise our profits.

Poker isn't only about the cards you get dealt.  It's about how well you play them. Maximizing profit in your good hands and minimizing the loss when you have a losing hand means more in the long run than flops, turns, and rivers. 

Win a 'School Pass' ticket!

If you hit a high score of 4800 points or more you will receive a VIP 'School Pass' ticket that will be credited to your PokerStars account. *You will recieve this ticket on the first occassion of hitting the 4800 points target. There is no ticket award for subsequent achievements.
Can you figure this puzzle out?  Play the six hands of our high score challenge and see how high you can get your chip stack.  There are many ways to play the six hands in this first edition of the High Score Challenge. But only one route will take you to the High Score. 

Our Pro's will give you some tips and pointers along the way but ultimately each decision is yours. Check the leaderboard when you're finished to see your score and if you're not happy with your position you can always try again. Did you hit a High Score? Brag about it in our Forum!
