Hi DvorzakM,

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.

Hi!

First of all in the Live Training section I didn't see 'Getting Started at PokerStars' or 'Bet Sizing' events.
And the second I don't have money in my account to play in money games.
I expected to get 2$ and then play in money games.
What to do now?

Hi DvorzakM!

The live training ones for today are already done. Tomorrow's will show then, as these run every day.

You can and will earn buy-ins throughout this promotion, but there are a number of steps that everyone has to go thru to be able to earn each one of them.

The first step in earning the first buy-in is to attend the two live trainings, play the play money tables and to post a hand that you had trouble playing using the hand replayer. One of the hand analyzers will then go thru the posted hand for you, to give you their ideas on how to play the hand better. When this is completed, then you will be moved to the next step of the process.

PSO instructors are available every step of the way to help you accomplish these tasks and determine your eligibility to receive the additional buy-ins. Once eligible you can complete the cash game quiz and receive your second $2 buy-in**

I do not see anything here about two live trainings and play money tables. How to explain this?

The Bankroll Builder promotion is not just about passing courses and receiving buy-ins. It's a learning process designed to help you with your game.

To complete it correctly you should have started your thread and followed the steps as advised by your instructor.

So far you have been instructed to play some play money games and using the Hand Replayer to post some interesting hands here in this thread.

Also you have been instructed to attend the 'Getting Started at PokerStars' Live Training session.

We did not instruct you yet to take any quiz.

Each step of your Bankroll Builder challenge will be advised by your instructor. In order to get any bonus you must complete each step as instructed by your personal instructor.


As advised above:

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.

Hi Dvorz,

In the first hand I like the flop bet for sure, but really not the turn check. Bet again on the turn for value, they'll be calling us with any king and probably pocket pairs and maybe even ace high. Checking the turn leaves way too much value on the table. River bet is good.


In the 2nd hand, it's a good fold for sure, A-rag is way too weak to be getting in this kind of action. Good laydown.

Hi DvorzakM

Now we want to get you playing on the real money tables. Next up, and spend some time on this one , study the Poker Basic Course and take the basic assessment quiz at the end of that course.

Once you have passed this quiz your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours of passing it. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion.

Use this first buy-in to then only play the 1/2 cent fullring real money tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you pass the quiz, get your first buy-in and start playing these games and we'll continue on from there.

Hi,

87 - Raise immediately on the flop. There's no reason to slow play as we will get value from Q's and flush draws. If another spade comes, it will serve to kill your action (if they don't have spades) to an extent, so much better to raise for value right now.

Don't worry about the fact that they both folded to the turn raise. The action was extremely weak by both opponents so they genuinely didn't have much... you likely weren't getting much no matter how you played it.


T9 - lead the flop, lead the turn... their weak actions indicate weak holdings, you are ahead the vast majority of the time here but very vulnerable... by check-calling min bets you're baseically giving 8x, hearts, and overcards a free shot to draw out on you. Better to extract value from draws and charge them to try and draw out on you, you'll make more in the long run (and maybe get drawn out on a bit less, but it's not about that, it's about making a long term profit which you can't do well if you're giving them a correct price for all their draws).

Excelent!

Now that you've passed the cash quiz your account will be credited with your second buy-in within the next 24 hours.

Again use this buy-in to play the 1/2 cent full ring tables only. Earn 10 Vpp's with this buy-in and we'll automatically award you with another one.

If you lose this buy-in don't worry, just post the hands that cost you the money here for review and we'll analyse them for you and get you going again.

Good luck at the tables.
