Hi durtybarry,

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 With Pokerstars' live training sessions. Please let me know after you have attended this session.

Also, you can be practicing 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

Hi durtybarry!

Please ONLY do what you are instructed to do in the posts here. Doing things out of order is going to make you have to do some items more than once.

Please play the full ring cash tables, per post 3 and post a hand that you had problems with using the hand replayer.

Hi durtybarry!

With QQ preflop, I'm going to make a standard raise, which for me is to 3BB+1BB for each limper, so I will raise to 6.

The flop gives me a K and when it checks to me, I will make my standard c-bet of 1/2 pot here, so I will bet 18. This way, all of my bets are standard, so the opps don't know if I've got QQ, Kx, set, or air. This also sets up the rest of the hand for me, as if an opp calls, I won't lead bet again unless I improve (as they most likely have a K) and if I get raised, it's an easy fold, as I know that my QQ is most likely beat.

One opp calls and I see a turn that should be a blank. The opp now shoves their last 22 chips in (1/4 pot). While I'm thinking that I'm most likely beat, this bet is small enough, that it's worth the risk to call, especially if the opp has been known to bluff at pots.
-----------------------

With AA, I have 4 limpers, then a raise to 44BB, then a min-raise to 174. Having AA, I want to re-raise and I normally size it between 3X the previous bet (522) and a pot-sized raise (615). However, I don't have that many chips, so I'm going to shove. I do not want to call and take a chance for an opp to see that they flopped two pair to beat me.

A spot like this is why I want to buy-into a game for the maximum chips allowed, as it will allow for me to size my raises better, which will deny odds to more opponents. The more opponents that I give the correct odds to, to outdraw me, the more often I will get sucked out on.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi durtybarry!

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, please let us know and 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 play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you get your first buy-in and start playing these games and we'll continue on from there.
