Hi Especially18,

You are eligible for the Bankroll Builder promotion and can earn up to $8 while learning the fundamentals of the game with PokerSchoolOnline.

We like to start everyone, no matter how much experience they may have, off with the basics so to get you started we'd like you to play some play money games (In the PokerStars lobby go to Hold'em > Play Money > No Limit) and using the Hand Replayer please post a hand that you have found difficult here in this thread.

Doing this will ensure that you know how to use the hand replayer tool and if you've any questions on it just ask us.

Also please attend one of the 'Getting Started at PokerStars' live training sessions. You'll find these sessions daily in the Live Training section.

Post back here when you have done both these things and we'll move you on to the next stage.

Thanks for the quick reply! Here is my hand replay and even though I won my pot, I'm having a hard time figuring out how to play mid-low pockets in ring games (6-9 players). Thanks for heads up!

Hi Especially

I think you played this particular hand fine. The main factor is not the amount of action in front of you, but rather the strength of your hand and your chip stack's relation to the big blind.

When you have 10 big blinds or less, which we definitely had in this case, you should be looking to go all-in with most pairs in most positions.

In fact, I would suggest we choose a hand to "go with" much before our chip stack got to the place you waited for. The reason is that, even when we win an all-in confrontation like we did, the blinds and antes are still going to put our stack at risk just a few short hands later.

Usually the best way to avoid this is to move all-in yourself when the action folds around to you.

Long story short, when you have 77 with this chip stack, definitely put those chips in . But don't hesitate to do so with a small or medium pocket pair at an earlier point in the session

Hi, I've just finished my session with ahar010 with his First Impressions video. I found it very enlightening as for the reads of other players. Am I now eligigble for the 2$ deposit and what is the next step?
Cheers

Hi Especially18,

That wasn't the 'Getting Started at PokerStars' session but no worries.

You've now learned how to post a hand for analysis and attended a live training session and this is really good!

Now it's time to study the Poker Basics course and when you've studied it have a go at trying to pass the quiz.

Once you've passed it we'll award you your first $2 and continue on from there. Let me know when you do this.

Judging by this you've already passed the Basic Assessment quiz, right?

Congrats on passing the quiz and your first $2 is on the way to you. It will be credited to your account within the next 24 hours.

The next step is to attend the 'Introduction to Bet Sizing' and 'Entering a Cash Game Pot' Live Training sessions. Be sure to attend these ones. They are scheduled daily in the Live Training section.

There short 15-20 sessions and once you've attended them let me know and we'll move on from there.
