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.

Ok, so this is not a play money hand as you asked, but I really wanted your opinion. It's from a late stage in a freeroll tourney. I had about 7BB left and was sitting in the button with AJs, the guy in UTG+2 makes a 3,5BB raise, everyone folds, and I shove. You can see what happened. Now my question is is a shove the correct decision in this situation? thanks.

As for the play money tables, I just can't figure out a way to play those people. They will call all regular size raises from any position, so the pots are always 4-5 handed at least, which means I could only raise with QQ, KK, AA, eventually JJ. Even the best drawing hands are just no good when there's so many players in the pot. In the end I was limping AK from the CO, just to see if I can hit on the flop.

Hi Zelja madman!

Freeroll tourneys have different strategies that are needed than league games and both are different from cash games.

Since it's a tourney, the ? to ask is 'am I in the $'? Do I have enough chips to get ITM? The answers to these questions will have a bearing on my actions along with my read on the opp.

If the opp is playing tight, especially if I think I have enough chips to cash, then I'm mucking here and looking for a better situation when I'm in position or have better cards.

If the opp is loose, especially if I need chips to cash, then I'm going to shove.

If this is a league game, it's an easy fold, as the one and ONLY point in these is to last longer to accumulate more points for the monthly leaderboard. I want to last as long as possible in these without ever having to take a chance.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi,

Next up play some 9-handed full-ring play money tables. (not tournaments) Make sure the tables have no empty seats.

Remember that the Bankroll Builder promotion is a Cash Game promotion only.

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