Hi !f00gZz,

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

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.

If you are opening, make it a more standard raise, 5x bloats the pot too much and makes it harder for worse hands to call.

Definitely good fold after all the cold calls of your raise and the blind shoving. Seat 1 stacking off with AJ as well is pretty terrible.

Thanks alot for the analysis, makes me feel like im on kinda the right path of play, I try and stay within the rules of what I should do but I believe we sometimes have to go outside those lines to be a good player.

Yes, you will still be able to get the reward so long as you are eligible for the promotion (and you are) and you follow each step as directed.

Your doing great! Attend the 'Getting Started at PokerStars' live training session and post back here when you've done so.
