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. Ask the Live Trainer plenty of questions while you are attending, it's the best way to learn.

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

Please let me know as soon as you have attended this session.

Perfect, yes we can see that you attended. Did you find the session useful? Don't worry about the 'Bet Sizing' session for now, you will need to attend that later in the promotion.

Next up please play some play money tables, full-ring, 9-handed only. Make sure the tables are full, that is, no empty seats.

Post a hand that you found difficult with here in this thread using the Hand Replayer.

Here is a video on how to use the Hand Replayer.


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

Hi dan.fat!

With ATs from the button, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper, so I will raise to 80. I then get a min-raise from the SB that I will call. I don't want to re-raise here, as my hand is not strong enough to do so.

The flop misses my hand and when it checks around to me, I'm going to check and hope to get an A or a 10 on the turn.
I do not want to be betting here with absolutely nothing and if my hand does not imporove on the turn, I will fold to any bet from the opps.

The key in this hand is to not make additional bets after an initial raise if I do not have a made hand.

Hope this helps and good luck 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.

When you have passed the Poker Basic quiz please let us know and we can continue on from there.

Hi dan.fat,

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!

Hello,

I have received the first 2$ and I've played 2 sessions (one with around 300 hands). I have done relatively OK since I ended the first session with +1$ and the second with +0,5$. The first one started OK and after 150 hands it become very bumpy. I'm going to post some significant hands. Related to Bet Sizing, as I have mentioned in the previous post I have attended it.

Thanks.

With regards,
Dan Fat

Raise, All in with AK on SB - I would say STD


Limp with A8 middle position - should I have been more aggressive ?


Lower straight from BB with A5 - should I have folded on the turn ?


Pocket 5s on the button - considering the stack size and the number of players should I have raised preflop ?


Aggressive betting from SB - here I wanted to steal then I have continued betting


KK on BB on 4 spade board with trips


JJ UTG - I think I should have bet on the river but I was out of position and in my opinion it wouldn't have been credible to represent a straight.


Bad play with J8 late position - lucky to limit the loses


Unlucky limp with AA on late position

hi Dan Fat,

AKo - Agree, standard

A8o - You asked if instead of limping in you should have been more aggressive. I think actually you should have been more tight. You're not in middle position here you're in early position, UTG +1. Mostly just fold preflop with weak aces in EP.

A5o - Again, this is usually just a fold preflop. Against the cut off's open raise I think calling is the worst option as A5o does not play well out of position without the initiative. If V7 is raising frequently when folded to in a steal position (cut off/button/SB) then re-raising or 3-betting is an option to resteal with an ace blocker. But the money is fairly shallow here and we have no reads provided, so just fold imo.

55 - With a 40 bb stack I and no reads on the opener it's close. The price to call and set mine is barely there, but if you flat and one of the blinds 3-bets you'll have to fold. If you opt to 3b it yourself then you are somewhat forced to go with it on this short a stack. If the guy is opening frequently in this situation then I like 3-betting to get folds from all his steals, going with it if he 4-bet shoves. If he's been pretty tight generally then flatting is ok, barely.

K8o - No problem preflop, raising blind v blind is standard here. C-betting the flop also standard. When he calls the flop I would shut it down at this point. Remember the goal was to steal. It was a reaonable goal executed in a manner that should be profitable in the long run. At the point where he's choosing to continue in the hand after seeing the flop, our goal has failed, so it's time for plan B. The back up plan is hand value, but in this case that hasn't come through either as we only have king high. The play which was profitable quickly becomes unprofitable if we don't stop putting more money in bad at this point... just keep in mind that sometimes when stealing it doesn't work out, that's part of it. It's ok to give up when that's the case.

KK - Big issue with preflop bet sizing here. UTG has opened to and been called by the SB, if you use the 3b sizing recommendations from the Introduction to Bet Sizing course they say to re-raise to 3x the openers total size (which is 6x) and in this case I would increase it due to the presence of the cold caller's extra money in the pot, the openers position indicating a possible strong range, and the fact that he'll have position post flop if he continues. I like about 10x here or .20c, but at least 8x at the minimum, .16c. If you had made it .20c here, gotten one caller, you'd have a pot sized bet left in your stack to shove the flop, and can feel comfortable you're getting the money in good.

JJ - preflop is fine, c-betting into 2 players is questionable here. Once you get called I think I'm totally done putting money in the pot. I agree with you that it's not credible to rep a 5 as you basically have to have 55 (A5 probably bets again on the turn).

J8o - fold or raise first in pre, don't limp... in this case open fold for sure.

Hi dan.fat,

You will have to attend it again then as I can't move you forward in the system until you do so. It is very important to do the steps only when asked and not before as this delays the process and may result in you missing out on a bonus.

Use the time while you are attending wisely, for example, prepare some questions that you can ask the trainer while you are there, it's a great way to learn.

Let me know once you have attended and we can continue on from there.

Hi dan.fat,

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.
