Hi MonCoeurTien,

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

Hi MonCoeurTien,

Was this from a tournament? Just a reminder that the Bankroll Builder promo is a full ring cash game promo only.

That said we've no problem analysing this hand for you. I'll ask one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you and offer some feedback.

Once he does this we can continue on from there,

Cheers,

Raiser

Hi MonCoeurTien!

With AK from UTG, I want to make a standard raise, which for me is 3BB+1BB for each limper, so I will raise to 600.
I then get 2 callers, a min-raise and 4 more callers. AK plays much better in a heads-up pot than it does in a multi-way pot, so due to this many people in the pot and two raises... I'm mucking AK here. AK is a hand with potential, but is not a made hand and if I'm going to be in a pot with that many players, I want to have a made hand.

One thing that I do not want to do is to get married to a hand. Even AA can be a losing hand, so if I'm in a situation where it does not make sense to stay in... I'm even mucking it.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi MonCoeurTien,

Perfect!

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.

Let us know when you pass the quiz and we'll continue on from there.

Hi MonCoeurTien,

That's brilliant news and congrats on passing the quiz.

Your first buy-in has been awarded and you will receive it within the next 24 hours. Use it to play the 1/2 cent full ring cash tables only.

Now that you're playing on the cash tables, it would be a good idea to attend the Bet Sizing training session.

Also, please post some of the hands that you have had trouble with here and we will be happy to analyse them for you.

Good luck at the tables!

Hi MonCoeurTien,

Thanks for posting these hands for reveiw and I'll ask one of the hand analysers to take a look at them and offer some feedback. He should do this within the next 24 hours.

Please let me know when you have attended to 'Bet Sizing' daily live training session.

Hi MonCoeurTien

The first thing I noticed is that there many open seats on both your tables. Try to stay on full tables for the time being. Making money on short handed tables takes a bit more experience. You can set the cash game filter from the Pokerstars lobby to only show tables with 7 or 8 players. I always do this.

First hand A3o: Your preflop raise and c-bet look good Once your cbet gets called you need to be careful. Both the 9, 10 and J are in the villains preflop calling range. Plus, the turn makes the board very connected. There are flush draws in hearts and clubs, AND straight draws with the 9,10,J. Good job checking the turn. Since your hand still hasn't improved on the river, I would have checked your option rather than raising. The only hands calling your raise are the ones that have you beat.

Second hand A2o: Preflop was smart to just check and you got a great flop. You definately want to lead out for a bet on this flop. Anyone with AK would most likely have raised preflop. Anyone with an A will most likely call your bet, but you don't want to give them a free card that might give them a better two pair, or a set if they have a small pocket pair. Two pair is a strong hand but not unbeatable. Raise for value rather than slowplaying. Had you raised the flop the 66 villain will often fold with the A on the board.

The turn re-raise looks stong. The villain bet 2 cents less than 3x your raise. This is often the size better players choose when they have a strong hand. However, he could be semi-fluffing with a flush draw. Calling this raise looks fine though.

The river is a tough spot. Having a read on the villain would help out plenty here. Without a read, I would lean toward folding.

GL and have fun at the tables!
