Hello PokerSchoolOnline,

I would like to participate in this promotion. I have not made any deposit in my PokerStars account, however I have completed a few of the quizzes that are part of the 8$ bankroll giveaway (Poker Basics, for example).

Am I still eligible to join and earn the maximum 8$?

Hi Extreme,

You are eligible for the Bank Roll Builder promo!

The next thing that you will need to do is to attend one of the 'Getting Started With Pokerstars' live training sessions. Please let me know after you have attended this session.

Also, you can be practicing on the play money NL ring tables and please post a hand that you were not sure about using the hand replayer. Below is a video tutorial on how to use the hand replayer



Thank you for being a member of www.pokerschoolonline.com and best of luck at the tables.

Hi ExtremeTP,

Thanks for posting, I'll ask one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at this for you and offer some feedback. This should happen later today.

Once he does this we can continue on from there.

The flop looks pretty good for you. The only hands beating you are AA, KK, AK and any 9x. Someone holding a 9 is less likely when two are on the board, however, with so many people in the pot we cant rule it out completely. The AA, KK and AK also seem unlikely since I would have expected those hands to be raised more aggressively preflop. Reraising is what I would do on this flop, but I would not have gone all in as you did. I suggest sticking with the standard 3x + 1x for each caller, making it 200. Here is why:

By making such a large overbet (larger than the pot), you create a situation where only the hands beating you are going to call your raise. Had you made it 200 and gotten reraised, you could have easily folded the hand and saved your stack. More importantly, if you were ahead in the hand on the flop, you want to keep the second best hands playing so that you can get more money from them.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi ExtremeTP,

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.

If you have already passed the Poker Basic Quiz please check back this time tomorrow and we'll advise on the next step.
