Hi hannyug,

Please don't do anything yet until advised by your instructor.

Jumping the gun and completing tasks before you were asked may mean you won't qualify for some of the bonuses.

Please wait for further instruction tomorrow.

Hi hannyug,

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 the 'Getting Started at PokerStars' live training session. You'll find this session 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.

Thanks raiser

Heres a hand i played earlier, i think i got the maximum from the villains, but, could i have got more by perhaps making bigger bets on the flop, turn and river? I made the preflop raise as it was a cash play money table and not a tournament, is this also correct? Would love some feedback.

Hi there,

Attended a 'Getting started' training session with andre 'horror77' today, very good session, he talks a lot and knows his stuff well!

Also, just got busted in a Pokerschool Open Skill League tourney, just wondering if i played badly, or was it just a bad beat? I think if i had flat called or raised 3bb, after flop villain would still push me all in with the same result? would love some feedback

Hi hannyug,

Thanks for posting, I'll ask one of the hand analysers to have a look and offer some feedback.

Once he does this we can continue on from there tomorrow.

Hi hannyug!

With K2s, I'm normally going to muck this. There are still 4 opps left to act and if I'm called, I'm most likely behind and could easily be out of position too. If I was on the button and it folded to me, I'd be much more likely to play it and make a standard raise with it (3BB+1BB for each limper).

I see a 4-way flop and hit top pair with a 2nd nut flush draw. The blinds check to me and I want to make a value bet here, but I need to watch the sizing of it. If I bet too large, then I will not be getting the correct odds to draw at the flush, as if I get called, I expect it to be by a K with a better kicker.
If there were less in the pot, I'd have to bet less, but with 3 opps, I'll opt for my standard c-bet of 1/2 pot.

The turn is what should be a blank in a 3-way pot. With two callers, one of them most likely has me beat with a K and higher kicker here, so here is where a read on the opp that has position on me would come into play. If they are passive (only calls bets), then I'm going to check and hope to see the river for free. If the opp is aggressive when in position, then I'll make another 1/2 pot bet here and then check the river if I dont' improve. I'm doing this to try to use pot control, since I do have outs to a better hand, but am most likely behind at this particular moment.

The river gives me the nuts and I want to make a value bet, and size it at whatever amount I think the opp will call. Since I'd used 1/2 pot the last two bets and they called, I'm going to bet at least 1/2 pot, if not slightly more.
When the opp min-raises me, I'm absolutly going to raise them back and would size it at my standard raise size (3X their bet), however, that is more than the number of chips that I have left... so I'm shoving here and hoping for a call.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

P.S. In a league game, one thing that I do not ever want to do is to be all-in with a marginal hand that might not be the best hand after all 5 cards are on the board. The one and only concern, especially at the end of the month is to get as many league points as possible by lasting as long as possible.

Hi hannyug,

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.

Hi hannyug,

No worries, all is good

Now that you have passed the quiz your first buy-in 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 buy-in to then only play the 1/2 cent real money tables only on PokerStars. Do not play higher buy-ins than this until instructed to do so. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as we will credit you with another should this happen.

Use all that you have learned so far to try some real money games (1/2 cent tables). Post any hands that you have difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyse them for you.

Also, attend the 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section.

When you've done all this we will move you onto the next stage. Well done on the progress so far!

Raiser

Hi Raiser!

Thank you, have received the $2 buy-in on my account.

Also, i finished ITM in last months PSO open skill league and have been credited with 50cents, which i was going to use to play in a couple of 10cent turbo mtts, and one 25cent 90man sng. Is it ok for me to do this, or am I not allowed to use this 50cents for other tables while i am still under the bankroll builder promo? please advise

cheers!

Sure, just don't use the Bankroll Builder buy-in for tournaments or this may mean you won't qualify for further buy-ins.

Remember you will be asked to post any hands where you lost Bankroll Builder money with and these need to be 1/2 cent full ring cash game hands only.

After that, what you do with any additional funds is entirely up to you and we wish you luck.

Hi there,

first notable loss on 1/2 cent table. villain kept minimum raising on a wide range of hands, so i 4bet him. called his cbet on the flop and decided to fold if he bet any further, which he didnt. my questions, was my raise too high, given my read on him? and should i have called the flop bet?

i figured my shove on the turn would force both villains to fold and not try to outdraw me,, it worked,, but, did the overbet imply that i was trying to 'buy' the pot? should i have bet around 60 to 70 on the turn and let one of them improve?,, i figured that if i did this, i would be betting over half my stack, so better to shove all in?
