Hi,

You are eligible for the BankRoll Builder promo!

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. Ask the live trainer plenty of questions while you are attending this class.

Please let me know after you have attended this session.

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

Thank you and we can see that you have attended the Getting Started session. Did you find it useful? Did you learn something from it that you didn't know before?

Next up 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.

Hi julesvega76!

The first thing that I'd recommend is that whenever you're at a cash table, to wait for the blinds. Paying the extra BB to get into a hand earlier will be a large drain to your bankroll over time.

With Q6o, I want to see a flop without putting anymore chips into the pot, as it is not a good hand.

I see an 8-way flop that gives me top pair, BUT there is a flush draw and even a possible made straight (let alone the straight draws). The opps check to me and with this many opps, since I can't price out all of them (due to there being too many in the pot), I'll make a pot-sized bet here (16), both for value and also to see where I'm at in the hand.

I see the turn 6-ways and the board pairs the 4 and puts another flush draw out there. It checks around to me again and I have two options for bet sizes. I can check for pot control or I can make a pot-sized bet for value. If I think that any of the opps would fold to a bet, I will make the pot-sized bet. If I think that the opps will all stay, I'll check for pot control.

The river gives me top two pair. When it checks to me, I want to make a value bet here and I'll size it based on what I think the opponents will call. When in this situation, I normally try to bet between 1/3-1/2 pot (between 90-130).

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.

Hi julesvega76,

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!

With these hands we hope to see a flop as cheaply as possible and against multiple opponents. Normally we miss the flop and check-fold the hand. However, when you do hit a set, straight or flush we often win a large pot.

So, calling preflop is good. I would not lead on the flop though. Keep the pot small and you might pick up a 7 on the turn. If you are going to raise, then you need to raise enough to to get people to fold. Minraising just wont get the job done.

Folding to the bet on the turn is the only thing to do. You only have two outs on the river so your hand will probably only beat a bluff if you continue.

Good fold

GL and have fun at the tables!

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.
