Hi siensite,

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' Live Training sessions. These sessions can be found daily in the Live Training section.

Please let me know after you have attended this session.

Also, please practice on the play money, no-limit, tables (full ring)

Hi siensite,

Thanks for that and I can confirm you did attend yesterdays session with André.

Next up practice on the Play Money Full Ring Tables (9-handed) and post a hand here for review using the hand replayer. Here's a video on how to use the hand replayer.


Once you post the hand for review we can continue on from there.

I am not sure I should have committed to this hand to that extent(although I was pretty sure I had the best hand on the flop), especially when I was put all in.

Hi siensite,

Thanks for posting this hand! I'll ask one of the hand analysers to take a look at this for you and offer some feedback.

Once he does this we can continue on from there.

Hi siensite!

With JJ and the action in front of me, I have just enough chips in my stack to setmine, so I will call the raise to 10 and hope to hit a J. When I try to setmine, I want to have at least 15X the bet in my stack, so that I get the correct odds to do so.

The flop is a great one for my JJ and especially since I'm out of position, I need to make a lead bet here and will make my standard value bet of 1/2 pot (31 chips). I don't want to bet less than this, especially with five opps in the hand, as I don't want to give the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me.
There is a call, then a raise to 60 chips. Here is where I have to make my decision in the hand. 50 more chips is well over 1/3 of my stack, so I'd be pot-committed. Due to this, I either need to 3-bet shove or fold and my decision here will be based on my read of the opponent.
If the opponent is very loose and raises a lot, then I'm going to shove since I most likely have the best hand.
If the opponent is tight and would only raise if they have a set here, then I'm going to muck and look for a better spot when I am in position.
Also, if I call the 50, the third opp will be getting the correct odds to draw to beat me if they have overcards, due to it being a 3-way pot (another reason that I don't want to call, as I want to be up against only one opponent, not two).

The key in this hand is to make a standard value bet (1/2 pot) on the flop, then shove over the opp's raise. If the opp that has an A calls both of those bets, then they will be making a play that overtime they will lose chips on average, a -EV play. Yes, they are entitled to get lucky, but overtime, they will lose their stack by making these types of plays.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi siensite,

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 siensite,

You've passed the basics quiz, congrats on that!

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!

Hey,
I started playing all-ring and I already lost all the money) Unfortunately, I haven't saved all the problematic hands because I forgot. Is this a problem and what should I do next?

Hi siensite,

Unfortunately we cannot award you any more buy-ins unless you post the hand histories of the hands where you lost the money.

In the 'Getting Started' live training session the trainer has explained to you how to save the hand histories on your PC, did you do this?

Another suggestion is to email support@pokerstars.com and ask them to email you with all the cash game hands that you played on the date you lost the money.
