Hi bugarin11,

Don't worry about having to pass a quiz until asked to do so by one of the instructors.

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 bugarin11,

Thanks for that and I can confirm you did attend tonights class with Chris.

Also thanks for posting the hand. I will ask one of the hand analysers to review this for you and offer some feedback.

Once he does this we can continue on from there.

Hi bugarin11

You hand involves serveral of the topics that will be covered in your training, with bet sizing being the most important. Yes, you raised a bit heavy preflop, but this is actually fine here.

You miss the flop and are facing 5 opponents. C-betting works best against one opponent. It's success rate decreases rapidly with each extra opp in the hand. I would have just checked this spot.

More importantly, if you are going to c-bet, make it about 50% of the pot. Here there was 360 in the pot and you bet 60. This will actually hurt you because you are inviting everyone to continue with the hand by giving them a cheap chance to out draw you.

Finally, you raised 60 preflop, 60 on the flop and 60 again on the turn into a pot of 600. A good player will recognize the same bet size and understand that you have a weak hand. A good player will then reraise you and give you the chance to fold or lose even more chips. Luckily, the remaining villain wasn't too good

I think you can be happy that you didn't lose on this hand. Remember, we need to reevaluate our hand with respect to the flop and action from the other players. AK is a premium starting hand, but it is not a made hand. Even 22 is slighly ahead of it preflop. Post flop AK is strong when we connect with the flop, but be careful (willing to fold it) when we miss the flop.

GL and have fun at the tables!

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 bugarin11,

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 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This should help too.

Good luck!

Hi bugarin11,

Both the tables you posted here were 6-max. We asked you to play full-ring 9-handed tables only. This may make you ineligible for one of the buy-ins so there's only 2 more left to get.

It's really important to follow each step carefully and only do what is asked.

I'll ask one of the hand analysers to take a look at them for you anyway as you did take the time to post them and we appreciate that.

Once he posts some feedback we'll continue on from there.

Hi bugarin11

Before we look at your hands, I would like to remind you to play on full ring 9 man tables. Also, make sure the tables are full. If people leave your table, I recommend leaving yourself and finding a new table to play on. You can adjust the filter settings in the Pokerstars lobby to only show tables with 7 or more players. This will help you be profitable.

AA: You played the hand perfectly preflop and on the flop

Your bet on the turn was also very good. However, the villain reraises for the minimum amount. This should set off warning bells in your head. It is usually a sign that a weak player has a very strong hand. You have AA, but it is "just a pair". We need to play carefully. Having a pair (over pair, or top pair top kicker) is not strong enough to get all in with.

I think it would have been better to just call the reraise. Then we could have reevaluated on the river. Checking down the hand if we can, calling a small bet, and folding to a large bet.

In the long run, you will make a ton of profit off players that call your preflop raise with K3. Just bad luck here

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi again bugarin11

You were unlucky with your big pairs in both hands.

Preflop looks fine. The flop is very connected giving both straight and flush draws. I think you bet a bit heavy, 15 cents rather than 20 would have been my choice. I am glad you didn't try to check-raise. We don't want to get the villain a free card if they are drawing.

The villain makes nearly a minimum reraise. Just like with the AA hand, this is often the sign of a very strong hand. Being heads up at the table makes it more difficult to know if this is really a strong hand or a semi bluff. Reads would help enormously here. If the villain had been very aggressive reraising many spots, then I would have moved all in as you did. If he was more passive, then I would have believed what his min-raise was telling us, that he did have a strong hand beating our overpair. Then we just have to fold.

Playing on full tables with 9 players helps to avoid tricky spots like this.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi bugarin11,

Next up we need you to attend one of the 'Bet Sizing' Live Training sessions. If you have already attended it then unfortunately you will need to attend it again.

The 'Bet Sizing' sessions can be found daily in the Live Training section. Ask the trainer plenty of questions while you are at the session, it's the best way to learn.

Let me know once you have attended so I can move you on in the promotion.
