Hi,

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 practising on the play money NL 9-max/ring tables and please post a hand that you were not sure about using the hand replayer. Here is a video tutorial on how to use the hand replayer.

Hi,

I've attended some trainging and played some play money games? What next?

This is a hand i made real mess of, any advice?
The other players have been playing rather aggressively so i call them on a gut shot flush draw to find my self losing to 2 pairs.



Thanks TvXFaDed

Hi TvXFaDed!

The key with hands like this is.. am I getting the correct odds to be in the hand? If so, then I want to call. If not, then I need to fold.

With J7s from the button, I want to make a standard raise, which for me is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 3 limpers, I will raise to 60. I don't want to be raising less, as I will then give the opps the correct odds to be drawing to beat me and also, I want some of them to fold, as my hand will play much better with less opponents.

The flop gives me a flush draw (9 outs) and also a gutshot straight draw (3 more outs), for a total of 12 outs. I'll discount the other cards, as either of them could give an opp a straight.
I now have an opp bet 500, a call of the 500 and a shove... all into a pot of 180 chips! To call, I would need to put 910 chips into a pot that will be 3060, which is 29.7%.
I now look at my hand and see that my 12 outs are worth 2% per street and being all-in, so that I'm guaranteed to see both cards without having to bet again will be the key.
If I only got to see one card, my hand would only be worth 24% and since the pot equity is higher, I would need to fold. HOWEVER, since I'm all-in, I'm guaranteed both streets, which gives my hand an equity worth 48%. Even if i discount the 10 of clubs (by which someone could possibly make a full house), then my hand would be worth 44%

My 44% hand equity is much higher than my 29.7% pot equity, so I'm calling the shove here as I expect to gain almost 15% to my stack each and every time on average.

Unfortunately, the board did not hit one of the outs, but it IS a positive play on average to call in this situation.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi TvXFaDed,

Thanks for that

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 TvXFaDed,

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 an 'Cash Basics' live training session. This should help too.

Good luck!

Hi,Raiser

Well I've played a few round and my bankroll now currently resides at $3.21. Although I would like some thought on this hand here.

Flop came at low pairs, but due to the fact the flop was very dry i continued and raised. The last part was a rather hard decision whether to call him or not, as I felt he had nothing and only raised in order to scare me away. I did end up folding due to the likely hood of him getting a straight. Some thought on whether i not i should have called on this hand would be much appreciated.



Cheers TVXFADED

Hi TvXFaDed

I am glad you posted your thoughts on this hand. It shows that you are thinking about how you play - that is half the battle

My biggest consern with this hand is preflop. K7s is not strong enough to play in this spot. I would recommend folding preflop. There are two early position limpers in the pot and three people left to act. Getting your bluff raise through them all seems unlikely.

As played, what type of range do you think the villain needs to call preflop? Probably lots of pocket pairs, Axs and maybe some suited connectors 10J and higher. The villain then calls your bets on the flop and turn. To me this looks most likely like either a flush draw or slowplaying a set. The guy seems passive at any rate.

He leads out big on the river. When a passive player makes a bet, I usually give them credit for a real hand. Folding looks good here. It seems odd that he would bet so much if he had the nuts, but it is still too much to call with middle pair. Good fold

GL and have fun at the tables!
