Hi poker790win,

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 John,

This a hand I am not sure about.
Villain 1 was going all in with any hand, so I waited a good one to call him, Is that right?

Hi poker790win

Firstly, I give you two for being observant. Getting reads on your opponents is very important - excellent work!

Regarding the actual hand, I think I would fold in this spot. The risk is just too great. Even if you knew that the other player had 72o (worst hand), you are only about a 60% favorite, and he might have picked up a real hand. You have a deep stack, so I would only call him with big pairs AA, KK and QQ, JJ if he were getting all in every hand.

Had he simply raised, then reraising him would have been good as you expect to be ahead.

AJo from mid postion is a great hand to open with if it folds to you. Against "normal" players, I would fold if facing a raise. If you are in the blinds and the co or btn raises, then I would reraise with AJo.

Nice pot though, and I am very happy to see you observing your opponents

Thank you Roland GTX,

I didn`t know I was only 60% favorite with AJ.

I completed the Quiz and attended 'Getting Started With Pokerstars' live training. Can I start my bankroll now?

Hi poker790win!

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 analyze 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.

Hi poker,

Until you gain more experience I recommend you leave short handed tables and only play with a fuller table. For your hands here:

A8o... raise is fine in a 4 handed game, from out of position here I'd like a bigger raise, .10-.12c to go. Flop c-bet is fine but fold to his raise, we're in bad shape vs. his range of hands here.

Hi poker790win!

Did you attend the Bet Sizing live training session?

It's also time to now attend the Cash Basics live training session.

Also, study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

Once you've passed the quiz and attended the live training sessions, post back here and we'll continue.

Hi poker790win

First hand J3o: This is a really bad starting hand. I can't think of any situation where we should be calling a preflop raise with this. Try to be patient and wait for stronger hands. They are easier to play and more profitable.

Also, this was not a good spot to bluff. Our hand is horrible, we are out of position, we missed the flop and we are facing an early position aggressor (usually a sign of a strong hand). Once our flop bluff bet gets called we need to give up this hand.

Finally, when players call the flop and turn, then fire out a solid bet on the river, they usually have a very strong hand. Watch out for this in the future

Second hand AJo: Preflop is fine, but AJo is at the bottom of my opening range from early position. You flop middle pair on a pretty connected board. C-betting is fine, but you got reraised. Notice that the villain's reraise size is fairly small. This is often a danger sign. Your hand is not strong enough to move all in with. We need top pair at a minimum, preferably with some draws.

So, if reraising is not our best option, we need to look at folding or calling. Knowing how to proceed in this spot is very read dependent. However, without a read, we need to think ahead in the hand. If we call, what do we intend on doing if the villain fires another bet on the turn? We will usually be forced to fold. There aren't too many cards that will clearly help us without also helping the villain's range. Therefore, just folding to his flop reraise is our best line.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Thank you Roland GTX,

I really need to fold in those situations.
Can I still get another buy in?
