This is the first I have ever posted in a forum so I hope I get it right.
I also hope I am qualified for the builders bank roll too. I will have to wait and see. I am learning a lot of things in this poker course and a number of them have nothing to do with poker. Like figure how to post on a forum.

Hi ,

Unfortunately last night's training was cancelled and I can't move you forward in the promotion until you attend the 'Getting Started' class.

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.

Use the time while you are attending this session wisely, for example prepare some questions to ask the live trainer while you are there about what size of bets you should be making, it's a great way to learn.

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

Perfect, we can see you have attended and I'm glad you enjoyed the sessions.

Just a note though that the 'Bet Sizing' and 'Cash Basics' classes come later in the promo and you will need to attend them later on as well. Don't worry about them for know, they'll come later.

Next Step

Next up play some Play Money Fullring (9-Handed) tables. Make sure that the tables are full, that is, no empty seats. All Play Money tables will be designated as 'Fun' tables in the PokerStars client.

Here's a short video about how to find the Play Money tables at PokerStars.


Once you encounter a hand that has left you facing a difficult decision or one that cost you a lot of chips save the hand history and post it here using the Hand Replayer.

Here's a short video on how to use the Hand Replayer.


Once you post a hand from one of the Play Money 'Fun' FullRing tables we will analyse it for you and we can continue on from there.

Not sure how well I played though it came out really well. this I tend to play passive and to overcorrect and get to agressive when I play agressivly the course has helped a lot with that but I still need to practice more and get the math better for the bet sizing. None of the other players were aggressive they all seem middling and neither tight nor loose. I found it harder the tight or loose players to play with.

Hi NightPheonix!

With AA or any other hand that I want to raise with, I want to make standard raises to help conceal the strength of my hand. Due to this, I will raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 1 limper, I will raise to 4BB or 800.
I then have an abnormally large raise from 800 to 11400?! When it folds to me, with the best starting hand in hold-em, I'm going to re-raise and shove here. A standard raise would normally be to 3X the previous bet, but since I don't have that many chips, I'm shoving. I also don't want to call and let the opp see a flop that can beat me.

The key here is to re-raise and shove preflop. I don't want to let an opp that could possibly have a 5 see that they flopped trips and would be ahead of me.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Next Step

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.

been there done that I took the test once before I learned who to get in the course and passed but I know I had a lot to learn and signed up anyway and I was right I learned a lot but I had I hard time betting to the getting started course. the other two were just that little bit later so I could make them. So I have done all the lessons and taken the final test. I also learned you can go though play money real fast if you play when you are "in a tilt" and playing to many medium hands which I used to do all the time and had learned not to.

Hi NightPheonix,

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 hope I did it right with what I spent so far I was up for a while but then I went down all in one hand. I got a play money hand here I would like some advice on please I am not sure I did it right. My read on the villain was that her hand was probably good Ak orQ or 2 pair. Did I do the right thing? This hand was in a tournament women only.

Hi NightPheonix!

One chip leak that many players have is playing too many hands from the blinds, especially the SB. When the button raises, I'm folding K4s here, as it's not a strong enough hand to be playing when I'm out of position. The key here is being out of position. If I was on the button, then I'd play it, but being out of position with a hand that it will be very hard to get the nuts with in most likely a 3-way pot, I'm mucking it.

I flop an open-ended straight draw. I need to be able to be priced into the pot here, if I profitably want to draw. To do this, since I have 8 outs, I need to be sure that I am putting in less than 16% of the pot, as each of my outs is worth 2% equity. By betting 1/2 pot here, I have invested 33%, which makes this a negative play for me. I'm going to check in this situation and see how much the opp bets. If they bet enough that it would cost me more than 16% to stay... then I need to muck because it will be a play where I will lose chips on average, each and every time.

When the opp shoves, I would need to put 955 chips into a pot that will be 2910 (32.8%). I have 8 outs and now I'm guaranteed to see both the turn and the river, so each of my outs is now worth 4%. With 8 outs, my hand is now worth 32%.

While I'm still going to lose a small number of chips on average here (0.8%), there are enough chips in the middle, that I'm going to take that chance and call.

The key to avoid these types of situations is to muck marginal-at-best hands preflop when out of position.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi NightPheonix,

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.

I have already done the cash game course and you are right there is a lot in there I had to do some of the lessons 2 or 3 times to get it all. I pass the quiz too. I also have have done the single game course and reviewed parts of the basic and cash course as I played and understood what it meant better so it helped even more after that but I still have to work on my weak spot. although at least I now know what they are and have a better idea of what I have to do to improve those areas. so what next? By the way on Sat night I came in 84 in the poker School open skill league tournament I was very pleased with myself

Brilliant! Your second buy-in will now be awarded within 24 hours.

Use all that you have learned so far to again play 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 analyse them for you.
