Hi TheD1ctator,

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)

Is it correct to not go all in pre flop? I had a very small stack which affected somehow my decision, if I had a bigger stack I could shove or 4-5 bet more easily.

Hi ,

Thank you and I can confirm you did indeed attend tonight's session with André.

Please use the hand replayer to post any hands for review.

Practice 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


When you have posted a hand using the hand replayer we will review it for you and continue on from there.

Hi TheD1ctator!

With AQ and a min-raise from UTG, I'm either going to make a standard 3-bet or fold here preflop and the decision there will be based on the way the opps are playing. If I think that the ones behind will fold, then I'll make a std raise to 3x the opp's prior bet (12). If I think that a number of opps will call a raise, then I'm going to muck because I'll have to play the pot out of position.
The button calls 6 and then UTG makes a huge 4-bet to 100. I'm going to muck to this large overbet 4-bet. I'm most likely behind one, if not both of the opps left in the pot, so since I'm out of position and don't want to be playing for my stack preflop, I'm mucking. AK is definitely a possiblility and so are any pairs and I'm behind that entire range with AQ.

One thing that we do not want to be while playing poker is to be results oriented. I want to make the best decision at a given point in time, then whatever happens after I make that decision, happens.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Thanks for the hand analysis John, I also agree that folding to the huge 4 bet would be the optimal play, so what happens now?

Also I think I made a mistake by not going all in preflop in this hand, do you agree?

Hi TheD1ctator!

I have QQ and see an abnormally high open-raise (to 17BB) that is called by 3 opps. I'm going to 3-bet here and size my raise at a pot-sized raise (139).

The flop is 5-handed and both an A and a K hit the board. This board is bigtime trouble, as I'm most likely behind, as with this many in the pot, someone should have an A or K. Due to this, I'm goign to muck to any bet on the flop.

I would not have shoved preflop, by making standard bets, instead of larger than normal raises, I can save chips when I do get outflopped and also get value from my hand when I do get a good flop for me.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi TheD1ctator,

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 let us know and we'll advise on the next step.

Hi TheD1ctator,

Congrats on passing the course.

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!
