Hi hahorner,

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 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.

I am not sure what was wrong. i think i could have bet bigger on the river. maybe opening with raise was wrong. But this is also a trial for hand replayer.

Hi hahorner,

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

In the meantime please attend a 'Getting Started' live training session. (see post above).

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

Hi hahorner,

I actually would have folded A2o preflop! This may sound overly nitty, but here is the reason. What are you hoping to flop with this hand? If an A comes, you may very well be dominated by another A with a better kicker. If you flop 235 for a straight, you are at the bottom end and may be facing someone with 67. Your cards are unsuited, so flush draws are also unlikely. A20 is fine to raise from the btn if the pot is unopened, but here there are several limpers already in the pot.

As played, your turn bet looks good, but got called by to opponents. We need to ask ourselves what might they be calling with. There are two clubs and two diamonds on the board. So, flush draws seem likely. The river gave anyone drawing for a club flush their card, and you still might be facing a better A or a full house. Villain 1 who has been passive all hand now leads out with a large bet. I think folding would be best, and perhaps calling if you have a read on the villain. If you are ahead, calling might entice villain 8 to call as well winning you even more. Either way, this is too dangerous a spot to be reraising.

Try to be aware of situations where you are likely to have the second best hand. Playing A2o often results in this.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi hahorner,

That's no worries, we totally understand and this is the reason that we have classes scheduled at different times on different days to suit everyone during the week.

I can confirm you were at the 'Getting Started' session tonight with André.

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 hahorner,

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 hahorner,

Just these 2 steps for now.

1) Post a hand that you had problems with, or that cost you money, while playing with this buy-in.

2) Attend an 'Bet Sizing' live training session and let me know once you have attended.

Cheers,

Hi hahorner,

That's great thanks and we can see that you attended. What did you think of the session? Did you learn anything useful from it?

I have asked one of the hand analysers to look at the hand you posted and offer some feedback.

Once he does this we can continue on from there.

hi hahorner,

I don't really like leading here with bottom pair... this isn't a value bet as there aren't really worse hands in the opponents ranges that will call on this board texture, and when they hold better hands most of those won't fold so it's not a good bluff either... hands like Kx, QT, QJ, J9, Q9, and of course strong hands 2 pair+. I would recommend just checking here, and folding to action from the limper. When the limper calls, are are behind most of his callling range as per above, so I'm shutting down unimproved personally.

Turn is our gin card, so definitely like betting for value now, but I would size the bet bigger than 40% of the pot. We should be able to get .10-.12c called by most of his range here so go ahead and grow the pot a bit more and extract that extra value from our lucky turn of events against all of his flop calling range that we've just pulled ahead of.

River is a gross card obviously. I actually like betting again as you did (I'd go a bit bigger, .12c maybe) and folding to a raise. The reason is I expect V5 will call us with all his 2 pair hands (KQ, KT, QT) and maybe Kx hands, but likely check all those down if we check to him. I can't see him ever raising without having us beat, most likely by a straight (but sometimes a boat), so bet for value and fold to a raise I think is optimal here.

Hi hahorner,

Perfect, your posting the hands and attending live training, you're doing a great job!

Now it's time to 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 post back here and we'll continue on tomorrow.

i've just passed the cash game quiz.

By the way, bet sizing training is just make things straight in my mind. once you are not play or watch you can make judgements, but when you are really holding that hand things get complicated. so it works fine for me, i'm sure when i'll be on table i will remember the training and i'll play better.

Brilliant! Your second buy-in will now be awarded within 24 hours.

Use all that you have learned so far to again play 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 analyse them for you.

Also, attend the 'Cash Basics' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section.
