Hi,

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.

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

Please let me know after you have attended this session.

Hi BreathT4k3r,

Unfortunately we do not see you on the list of attendees for the 'Getting Started' session yesterday and we are unable to move you forward in the promotion until you do attend this session.

It's only the 'Getting Started' session you need to attend for now.

Use the time while you are attending this session wisely, for example, prepare a few questions that you can ask the trainer while you are attending, it's a great way to learn.

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

Hi,

We see that you have attended the 'Cash Basics' class but not 'Getting Started'

It's really important here you do the steps as asked. Also this hand is from a tournament and the Bankroll Builder is a Cash Game promotion only.

If you would like to have a tournament hand reveiwed you can post them in the >>Tournament Hand Analysis<< section of the school.

Hi BreathT4k3r,

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!

I had only $2 in the bankroll and I used $0.80 to buy in...
since I had 50 BB. I was playing tight and while I was at the table I made notes of most of the players .
The opponent in this hand is a very loose and agressive player , since I played tight for most of the time I tried to raise heavily preflop and represent a Premium Pair and he called . The flop was dry and I was certain he would not have connected so I went allin like i would with KK or QQ. But to my surprise he called and showed 46s of clubs.
Will this play work against any skilled opponent ? or did I just get lucky this time ?

Hello BreathT4k3r,

Thanks for posting these hands for reveiw. I'll ask one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at these for you and offer some feedback.

Hi BreathT4k3r

I like your aggressiveness and that you are paying attention to your opponents, However, I think you did get fairly lucky in this spot. In general, bluffing is not neccessary at 2NL. Playing good starting hands and betting with your strong hands post flop is profitable.

Preflop, A5o is too weak to reraise with, unless you expect the villain to fold. A5o is too often dominated by another A with a better kicker.

As played, I would suggest betting less on the flop. The standard bet size is 50% the pot. By making a large overbet as you did, you create a situation where you normally get value owned by the villain. This means that all the hands you are beating fold, giving you less value for you hand. While only the hands beating you call, meaning you are getting stacked unless you get lucky.

This spot worked out nicely for you - congrats! I suggest sticking to the recommended starting hands and bet sizes until you get a bit more experience.

GL and Merry Christmas!

Roland GTX

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.

this was a limped pot ... I just limped to catch some monster hand or else fold .
I thought my two pair would be upper hand to most range of hands the opponent could have , since he was very loose player .
But I never ever expected him to show the bullets , completely took me out by surprise !!
was this a bad beat or bad bet sizing on my part ?
