Hi kickserv,

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.

These classes are scheduled at different times on different days of the week so you will need to find which day suits your time zone best.

I played some of the "play money, no-limit" table action. In the following hand I don't think I played it right, but bluffed at the river and got paid.

PokerStars Hand #90161263137: Hold'em No Limit (10/20) - 2012/12/02 15:01:05 ET

As for this hand, I think I got myself into trouble by not folding pre-flop. I hit K's on the flop and ended up folding but I got myself into trouble by getting involved in the first place!

Hi kickserv,

Don't worry about posting a hand for review at the moment, that comes later in the promotion.

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.

These classes are scheduled at different times on different days of the week so you will need to find which day suits your time zone best.

Please let me know after you have attended this session and we can continue on from there.

Post back when you've attended the session. Prepare some questions for the live trainer that you can ask him while you are attending.

We will let you know when you are to get the bonuses, you've a few more steps to do yet. For now though all you need to do is to attend that live training session.

Hi kickserv,

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

We still need you to learn how to use the hand replayer though, it's a vital part of the Bankroll Builder promo.

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 tried 100 times to get the "hand replayer" to work. But on the MAC I could not paste the "Hand History" into the box on the "hand player" screen. It would simply not let me paste it. I know how to use it but as I said, it would not let me paste the info into the box!

So here are two hands.........

PokerStars Hand #90283334664: Hold'em No Limit (1/2) - 2012/12/05 0:44:11 ET
Table 'Mnemosyne II' 9-max (Play Money) Seat #1 is the button
Seat 1: threshold 4Q (1172 in chips)

*** SHOW DOWN ***
TIME4 2012: shows [2h Kh] (high card Ace)
PhilIns: shows [6d Jc] (a pair of Sixes)
PhilIns collected 337 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 353 | Rake 16
Board [4h 6c 3h Ad 7s]
Seat 1: threshold 4Q (button) folded on the River
Seat 2: JOLD668 (small blind) folded on the Turn
Seat 3: kickserv (big blind) folded on the Turn
Seat 4: insignifcant folded on the Flop
Seat 5: nuts5757 folded on the Turn
Seat 6: John_212 folded on the Turn
Seat 8: TIME4 2012 showed [2h Kh] and lost with high card Ace
Seat 9: PhilIns showed [6d Jc] and won (337) with a pair of Sixes


In the above hand I think I got into trouble not continuing to re-raise on 4th street. I either should have folded after the flop or got out of the way right before the hand even started. As you can see I would have had a straight on 4th street and would have won the hand.


PokerStars Hand #90283648293: Hold'em No Limit (5/10) - 2012/12/05 1:06:38 ET

Board [9s 5h 8s Td Js]
Seat 1: dudah6 showed [7s Kh] and won (1566) with a straight, Seven to Jack
Seat 2: kickserv folded on the River
Seat 3: PAstre showed [8h 7d] and won (1564) with a straight, Seven to Jack
Seat 4: marcemojarra folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 5: Lesfranklin (button) folded on the Turn
Seat 6: Donner Donny (small blind) folded before Flop
Seat 7: monrocky13 (big blind) showed [5s Jd] and lost with two pair, Jacks and Fives
Seat 8: H82CULz folded on the Turn
Seat 9: optikbuno folded on the River

I really didn't know what to do when the river hit on the above hand. I did the right thing my folding, but it was tough to decide what to do before that river hit!

Hi kickserv,

Ok, thanks for letting me know this. Until we get this fixed I will put the hands into the replayer for you. Just post one hand at a time.

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

I'll ask one of the hand analysers to look at these hands for you and offer some feedback. Once he does this we can continue on from there.

Hi kickserv

First hand 55: Firstly, with so many limpers, checking is much better than raising. Normally 55 misses the flop. By raising you are usually just putting more into a pot that you will proabably have to fold to on the flop.

You get a good open ended draw on the flop. There is 80 in the pot. Standard bet size would normally be 50%. Betting 14 is still just building the pot before you have a made hand. It won't get anyone to fold. Try to stick to standard bet sizes for the time being.

On the turn the pot is 253 and you need to pay 25 to continue. You are getting slighly poor odds to call here hoping for a non heart 7. However, with so many people in the hand, and the size of the pot, your implied odds make this a good spot to call. If you hit your 7 you can expect to win a large pot.

Second hand J8o: This hand is very weak. I strongly suggest just folding J8o preflop every time.

As played, checking the flop is smart when you have middle pair on a fairly wet board. On the turn. You now have an open ended straight draw. This seems similar to your 55 hand, but isnt. You still have good implied odds, but calling 80 is a much larger portion of your stack than calling 25 in the previous hand was. I would have folded here myself.

On the river, two pair rates to be the second best hand on this board. Learning how to reduce your losses is a big part of learning to be profitable. Great job folding!

GL and have fun at the tables!

Thanks for the info Roland GTX. And yes you are 100 percent correct sometimes just better to fold right at the beginning, saves you money in the long run.

Hi kickserv,

Congrats on passing the quiz. Your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours. 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 real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as you will be able to earn another buy-in should this happen.

Use all that you have learned so far to try 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 analyze them for you.

Also, please attend the 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section.

Please let me know when you receive the buy-in and attend the training session.
