Hi BuslinBrando,

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

Okay heres my first hand for review...



i raise on the button with my pocket pairs and then i get three betted i decide to call which maybe was a bit loose by me, post flop im pretty confident i have the better hand with the over pair, his bet tells me he maybe has ace king or queen something like that or maybe an overpair as well, he ends up getting lucky on the river... should have i maybe raised all in post flop because just by calling im already pot committed and a raise might have made him fold his draw? any advise is welcome

Hi BuslinBrando,

Thanks for posting and I'll ask one of the Hand Analysers to review this for you.

In the meantime please attend an 'Bet Sizing' live training session.

After you have done this we can continue on from there tomorrow.

Hi BuslinBrando!

The first recommendation that I would make is to play the full ring tables and not 6-max, as when you earn buy-ins with this promotion, playing any tables other than full ring will make you ineligible for further buy-ins.

With 88 on the button, I want to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper, or for here, I'll raise to 40. I don't want to raise less than this, as it gives the opps the correct odds to draw to beat me (something that I do not want to do).
When the opp raises to 140, my stack is deep enough to setmine at this blind level, so I'm just going to call behind and hope that the SB calls too, to give me better pot odds. I don't want to shove here, as 88 is a made hand, but it's a marginal hand. There are plenty of cards that the opps could have that are higher than an 8 that they can pair and beat me. I only want to have all my chips into the pot when I know I'm going to be ahead after all 5 cards hit the board, if at all possible. Shoving too many chips too early in a hand with a marginal hand is a losing proposition long-term.

The flop brings 3 under cards and the second opp bets 340. With only a bit more than 500 chips, here is where I need to make my decision in the hand. I do not want to call here, I either need to shove or fold. If there was an overcard that hit on the flop, I'm mucking to this bet. Since the flop was all undercards (rare for 88), I'm going to shove the flop here. I'm hoping that the opp has non-matching overcards for a 2-card race (that I'll win 76% of the time). I also hope that both opps do not stay, as that could lower my win % from 76% to 52%.. which makes it a virtual coin-flip.
I don't want to let the opps see the J on the turn, because it would let them know that they have me beat.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

Hi BuslinBrando,

No, that's fine and thanks for attending. Of course you can drop into those sessions at any time to ask a trainer a question in real time if you want to, you'd be very welcome to.

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 let us know and we'll advise on the next step.

Hi BuslinBrando,

Congrats on passing the course.

Your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours.

Use this first buy-in to then play ONLY the 1/2 cent full ring real money tables only on PokerStars. Playing any other game format will disqualify you from being able to obtain further buy-ins through this promotion.

Post back here when you get your first buy-in and start playing these games, along with a hand that you had problems, or that cost you money, while playing with this buy-in.

Also, please attend the 'Cash Basics' live training session. This should help too.

Good luck!

Hi BuslinBrando,

That's plenty for now

Don't worry about being confused, we all get faced with difficult decisions in this game.

I'll ask one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at these hands for you and offer some feedback.

Once he does this we can continue on from there.
