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 With Pokerstars' live training sessions.

These sessions can be found daily in the Live Training section.

Please let me know after you have attended this session.

Hi zPainz,

Perfect, we can see you on the list of attendees, did you find the session useful?

Next next 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 zPainz!

The first thing that I'd recommend to you is to never join a table early and pay an extra big blind. Wait for the blinds. Paying the extra blind continually will be a problem for your bankroll.

With K9s, while I could make a standard raise (3BB+1BB for each limper, which with 4 limpers is to 70), I'm going to check and hope to get a free flop. Depending on my reads of the opp's play, I could raise to 70 or check.

I see the flop 5-handed and flop top 2 pair. When the opps check to me, due to the number of opps in the hand, I'd normally make a pot-sized bet (530), BUT, since this is over 1/2 my stack, I'm shoving the flop. I'm pot-committed and I don't want to let any of the opps see an overcard hit on the turn or river that could beat me without putting their chips in first.

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 zPainz,

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!

So i was playing some hands today. Was up $0.60 before getting in some bad spots. Now I'm down to $0.78 so I can't really join anymore tables. This was my last hand.

Use the time you are there wisely, for example, prepare some questions that you can ask the Live Trainer while you are attending.

Post back here once you have attended this session and we can continue on from there.

Hi zPainz,

Sorry, I must have over-looked this post.

We can see that you did indeed attend the 'Bet Sizing' session on Dec 22nd. Don't worry about the 'Cash Basics' as that comes later on in the promo.

Also thanks for posting this hand for review. I'll ask one of the hand analysers to take a look at it for you and offer some feedback.

Once he does this we can continue on from there.

Hi zPainz

This hand is very useful for you to review! 1010 is a very strong starting hand preflop. However, any J, Q, K or A are scare cards for you. You definately don't want to slowplay with solid pocket pairs like this.

Preflop, any time you are the first to enter the pot, enter with a raise! Don't limp. This is true regardless of your hand. As played, I suggest reraising.

The flop is good for you since it is only low cards. Lead with a standard 50% pot raise. Again, don't slowplay.

Since you have been letting the villain do all the raising on the earlier streets, it is tough to know if the K helped. Had you been the raiser, it would be easier to know what to do here. As it stands, the villain has so little money behind, I think is ok to pay him off.

Nonetheless, the important point with this hand is what happened preflop and on the flop.

GL and have fun at the tables!

You're right. I was playing quite passive the last couple of hands since I lost quite a lot in that table. I was playing a bit aggressive but ended up switching to passive. Bad Move.

Thanks Roland GTX

Hi zPainz,

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.
