Hi Darkfervac,

You are eligible for the Bank Roll Builder promo!

Unfortunately you will have to attend one of the 'Getting Started' Live Training sessions again. It's important not to do any of the steps BEFORE you are asked as it slows up the process and you may miss out on some bonuses.

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

Prepare some questions that you can ask the trainer while you are attending, use the time wisely.

Please let me know after you have attended this session.

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

Hi Darkfervac,

Perfect, we can see you on the list of attendees, did you find the session useful?

Next next play some 9-handed full-ring play money tables. Make sure the tables have no empty seats.

Find a hand that caused you difficulty or cost you chips and using the hand replayer post it here in the Forum.

Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.


Once you've posted your hand we will analyse it for you and then continue on from there.

I was playing this hand and I have a few doubts about it. Should I have played until the river (like I did and folded) or Should I have folded before?

P.S: I found Getting Started session very useful. Thank you.

Hi Darkfervac,

Thanks for posting this hand. I'll ask one of the Hand Analysers to review it for you and offer some feedback.

Once he does this we can continue on from there.

Hi Darkfervac!

With T9o and being out of position, even with the prior limp, I'm mucking this preflop and looking for a better spot... either with better cards or when I'm in position.
When the button raises after all the limps, their raise is abnormally low too. A standard raise for this blind level is to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper, so it would be a raise to 1100. With this being fishy too, I'm mucking for sure, as 10 9 is not going to be the best hand here.

The flop gives me 2nd pair and an OESD. With this many opps in the hand, while I'd like to make a 1/2 pot bet here, I really need to make a larger bet (pot-sized) here for three reasons. To get value from my pair, see where I'm at in the hand and more importantly, to lessen the field. I don't want to bet less, as anyone else that would have a draw would be getting the correct odds to draw to beat me.

The key in this hand is to not limp marginal hands when out of position. Have patience, muck them and wait for a better hand or to be in position. Playing too many hands, especially out of position, is one of the largest chip leaks that most players have. Yes, when a hand hits, it can win a big pot, but it'll never make up for all the times that I miss and have to fold.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi Darkfervac,

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.

Thanks for that piece of advice John (JWK24). I know I should not play that kind of hands, but I was trying to mix up my game.

I have finished the Poker Basic Course. I have also taken the test and passed it.

Hi Darkfervac,

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!

I lost a few chips in this hand. I want to you know what should I have done?
I think making a middle bet at the river would have changed things.

By the way, I will attend to Betting size training session today.

Darkfervac
P.S: I have $3 lol. Can I withdraw money earned from Poker? Let's say I won $20. Can I withdraw them?

Hi Darkfervac,

With AJo in mid position, my action will be rather read dependent. My standard line would be to raise 3x if the pot is unopened, but fold when facing a raise. I prefer to have a decent read before reraising with AJo. Reraising can be profitable though. Especially since we are going to have position on the villain.

When we reraise, I strongly suggest following the standard bet size which is 3x the original raise plus 1x for each caller. Had you 3-bet to 18 preflop, the villain may well have folded. Min-reraising is rarely a good idea. Min-raising just builds the pot and will not get many opponents to fold. At this point we do not even have a made hand.

On the flop, the villain checks to us. We took the initiative preflop by 3-betting. I would strongly suggest keeping the pressure on the villain by making a standard 50% pot c-bet on this flop. Remember, most flops miss most hands (yours and the villains). By 3-betting preflop and betting on the flop we are showing a lot of strength. This line can get weak pairs that are actually beating us to fold quite often.

The turn bet from the villain looks weak since it is so small. After checking the flop, we could have reraised this small bet to regain initiative in the hand and probably winning it at this point. Had he reraised us, then we have an easy fold.

On the river, we have now missed two opportunities to win the hand. Making a large river bet seems a bit risky now. It no longer looks like we have a strong hand and the 6 on the river doesn't fit in our likely range. Checking down as you did was fine.

Semi-bluffing the flop by making a continuation bet would be have been great in this hand since all the conditions are in place. We are only facing one opponent. We have position on them. They have shown weakness by checking to us. And, the board dry.

I hope this helps!

GL and have fun at the tables!

Thank you so much Roland GTX for the advice. I found it useful.

In the live session, the trainer helped me out with some doubts about c-bets.

Hi Darkfervac,

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.
