Hi Marsupiano79,

Yes, you are eligible and welcome to the Bankroll Builder.

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 each of the 'Getting Started at PokerStars' and 'Bet Sizing' live training sessions. You'll find these sessions daily in the Live Training section.

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

Thank you for attention,

I have attended the two live training sessions, and I have particular difficult in playing this hands. It`s interesting being more agressive or more passive on them?

Hi Marsupiano79!

With AQ in the SB, I want to make a standard raise, which for me is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With one limper, I'll raise to 4BB, which here is to 40 chips. I want to keep my raises standard, so that the opps are kept guessing as to which cards I'm playing.
The flop is 3 under cards. With making a raise preflop, I'm going to c-bet here and size it at 1/2 the size of the pot (55 chips).
The turn is a total miss for me. After the opp calls my first two bets, I'm going to check the turn here for pot control. Plus, the opp could easily be ahead of me by having a pocket pair or by hitting a card on the board.
The river pairs the turn. Same situation here, I'm going to check and hope to get to showdown.
The key thing to remember on the turn/river is that the bet sizes on these streets need to be in relation to the size of the pot. Since the pot is larger than on the flop, I need to bet an according % of the pot on these streets... to make these bets believable. However in a situation like this, I try to use pot control unless my hand improves.

With J7s in position, I could raise to 4BB (3BB+1BB for each limper) or I could call and play the rest of the hand in postion.
I flop top pair with a bad kicker. When it checks to me, I'm going to make a value bet of 1/2 pot in this situaion. I want to get value for my top pair and see if I can get 1 or 2 of the opps to drop, so that I can play the rest of the hand with less players.
The turn gives me a flush draw and now the SB leads out for a 3/4 pot bet. A5 already has a straight and there are straight and flush draws out there. I'm just going to call this bet. I may or may not have the best hand, so I don't want to raise unless I have the best hand.
The river gives me a flush and the SB makes a very small bet again that is called by the 2nd opp. I'm going to raise this bet for value and will size it at between 1/2 and the size of the pot.. whatever amount I think the opps will call.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi Marsupiano79!

Your first $2 will be credited into your account within 24 hours. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion.

Use this first $2 to then play ONLY the 1/2 cent real money tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you get your first $2 and start playing these games, along with a hand that you had problems, or that cost you money, while playing with this $2.

Also, please attend the 'Entering a Cash Game Pot' live training sessions. This should help too.

Good luck!

Hi Mars,

Don't really like limp-reraising, generally just open the action for a raise yourself. The reraise size is fine (could even be a little higher) and post flop with the pot this bloated we are definitely committed and shoving is fine imo, plenty worse can call at this point.

Hi

Thank you for your analysing.

I have attended the Entering a Cash Game Pot live training and completed the Cash Game Quiz. How about the second bonus?

Hi Mars,

The story is really the same in both of them... don't play marginal holdings. Both hands are very weak holdings, in the K2 hand don't limp in with it and don't call a raise with it... if the players behind you are tight you can open raise first in as a steal, but otherwise just fold.

In the 2nd hand don't call a raise with J5, this is just asking for trouble. Then on a coordinated flop he continuation bets into 2 players which looks really strong, and you raised all in with a gut shot and back door flush draw. You don't really have enough money to get any kind of decent hand to fold, and your hand equity is poor with this weak a draw as well, so again this is just a spot to be folding.

Ultimately tighten up a lot of the loose preflop calls and start with stronger hands and you'll avoid a lot of these bad spots. Once you gain experience you might loosen up a bit, but then you'll understand why and what situations are good for that. Neither of these were imo.

Thank you for explanation TheLangolier, I just overvalued my hands, I need to stop playing marginal hands.

"After completing the cash game quiz, there are three ways you can earn two additional buy-ins**:
Earn 10 VIP Player Points (VPPs) at PokerStars $0.01/$0.02 FR NLHE tables and we will automatically release your next buy-in.
If you lose your buy-in before earning the required VPPs, you will need to post the key hands from your losing session in your forum thread. Your PSO instructor will review your play and, where necessary, suggest additional training before sending you back to the tables with your next buy-in."

I have lost all my money and have only 8 FPP, how can I earn two additional buy-ins?
