Hi 0stanleycup0,

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. Here's a short video on how to use the Hand Replayer

Im guessing that slowplaying my hand here was indeed the wrong play...Given that the board was condusive to all types of draws?
Im slowly figuring this out ....thankfully with playmoney atm.

Hi 0stanleycup0!

With AT on the button, I'm going to make a standard raise, which for me is to 3BB+1BB for each limper, so I will raise to 250.

The flop gives me two pair, but also has a possible made straight, multiple straight draws and also a flush draw. Due to this, when the opps check to me, I'm going to make a value bet. The key to this bet will be the bet size. I want to get value for my hand, but I also want to bet enough so that if either or both of the opps call, they are making a -EV call (a call in which they expect to lose chips on average). With two opps and a possible combo draw available (straight and flush), I will make a pot-sized bet of 825 here. Any smaller bet or a check will give the opps the correct price to draw to beat me, which is something that I do not want to have happen. I only want to give a free card IF there are no cards in the deck that can beat me. Here, there are multiple cards that can beat me.

The turn completes the straight to any Q (which is well within both opponent's ranges). The second opp now bets 450 and I need to see if calling makes sense. This is most likely going to be from a Q, so I will need to improve to win the hand. It will cost me 450 chips into a pot that will be 1725 (26.1%). With two pair, I have 4 outs to improve (two aces and two 10's). With 4 outs, my hand equity to see the river is 2% per out, so my hand is worth 8%.
Since the pot equity (26.1%) is higher than my hand equity (8%), this is a very negative play for me to call here, so I will muck my two pair. On average, I expect to lose 18.1% of my chips, each and every time I call here and I do not want to make a play where I expect to lose chips. I want to be making plays where I expect to gain chips (where my hand equity is higher than the pot equity).

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Thanks for the analysis ,,Im still working on equity formulas,Trying to get them engrained into my brain .....Giving a free card on the turn ,wspecially with such a wet flop is something i KNOW ,but when im in the game I sometimes throw common sense out the window for no appearant reason .
thanks again

Hi 0stanleycup0!

Congrats on passing 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 FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as you will be able to earn another buy-in 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, please attend the 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section.

Please let me know when you receive the buy-in and attend the training session and we will move you onto the next stage.
