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)

Perfect, yes we can see that you attended. Did you find the session useful?

Next up please play some play money tables, full-ring, 9-handed only. Make sure the tables are full, that is, no empty seats.

Post a hand that you found difficult with here in this thread using the Hand Replayer.

Here is a video on how to use the Hand Replayer.


Once you post your hand for review we can continue on from there.

Hi there, sort of, good intro to the site.
here is my hand from the tables, was quite interested to see if you think i could have kept more players in by betting less initially?


Thank you

Hi tot carlberg!

With JJ from mid position, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Since there are two limpers, I'll raise to 10. The reason that I want to raise is both for value, but to try to get some of the opps to fold, as JJ play much better against only 1 opponent. The more opps that are in the pot, the worse that any made hand plays.

I see the flop 6-ways and get three undercards with a heart flush draw and also a possible straight draw. Here is a great example of why I want to have less opps in the pot. If I was heads-up, I only need to bet 1/2 pot to give the opp the wrong odds to draw to beat me. With 5 opps, I cannot price all of them out, as if they all stay, multiple of them will be getting the correct odds to draw. The best that I can do here is to make a pot-sized bet and hope that some of the opps fold, so that the last 2 streets are easier for me.

The J on the turn is both a good and a scary card for me. Yes, I just made a set, but QT just made a straight. Once again, if I was heads-up, I would make my standard 1/2 pot value bet... but due to having 3 opps in the pot, I once again have to make a full pot-sized bet (217). I can't bet less or the opps will be getting the correct odds to draw to a straight or flush.

The river completes the spade flush, but gives me a full house and the lone opp left checks. I'd have rather seen the opp bet, becuase a made flush would have made a lead bet here (that I'd be more than happy to raise). With the opp checking, I want to make a value bet and will size it at whatever amount I think that the opp will call. The one thing that I do not want to do is to bet too big and have the opp fold, which would lose me value for my hand.

While the hand worked out for me, I don't want to bet too small just to keep others in the hand when I have a hand that can be beat. I want to make standard bets that will help to conceal how strong my hand is and to try to lessen the field preflop.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi tot carlberg,

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.

Good luck!

Hi tot carlberg

This is a typical spot new players get into. Let's take a closer look.

Preflop, there are two limpers in the pot and you are in position on the btn. It seems like a great spot to see a cheap flop. It is a great spot if you have a decent prospective hand. However, K4o is just too weak. I strongly suggest folding this hand every time preflop.

Prospective hands that you want to see a cheap flop with would be smallish pocket pairs, Ax suited and suited connectors. With these hands we miss most flops and have to fold, but when we flop a set or strong draw, there is a good chance of winning a big pot.

As played, checking the flop with bottom pair was good. With so many players in the hand, there is a decent chance someone has a better pair.

The turn gives you two pair. This is good, raising the min-bet is good. However, I would suggest making it slightly larger. The standard bet size is 3x the original raise plus 1x for each caller. Either way, we need to be cautious when we get called by both players.

Look at the board on the river. Any J is beating you, as well as plenty of better two pair combos. Furthermore, the villain lead out with a large raise compared to the min-bet he made on the turn. Although it is still only about a third of the pot. All of these indicate that you are probably beat, but you are getting good enough odds to call his bet on the off chance that he has a missed draw or a single pair.

The only big mistake you made in this hand was getting involved in it in the first place.

Be patient and try to stick to playing stronger starting hands. It will make your postflop play much easier.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Roland GTX

Next Step

The next thing that you will need to do is to attend one of the 'Bet Sizing' Live Training sessions. These sessions can be found daily in the Live Training section.

As always use the time spent at these sessions wisely, for example you could prepare any questions you may have and ask the trainer while you are attending, it's a great way to learn.

Hi tot carlberg,

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.

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.

Also, attend the 'Cash Basics' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section.
