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' live training sessions. Ask the Live Trainer plenty of questions while you are attending, it's the best way to learn.

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

Please let me know as soon as you have attended this session.

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?

Just to note though that the other two sessions come later in the promotion, you will need to attend them again but only when instructed to do so.

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.

After alot of loose play from the table I finally got a hand worth of being played. Here's some of my thoughts:

Pre-flop: Since i had a strong hand and only had to call 1:3 of the pot, I went for it even tho I were in a bad posistion.

Post-flop: With 6 people in the pot allready I tried to scare them away and "protect" my hand by pretending to have a flush draw. So i bet 50% of the pot.

As my only opponent had to go all-in I quickly saw that only an 8 would save him here and the big pot was mine.

I must say.. If I was playing for real money I dont think I would have bet 50% of the pot with only KK and Ace as a kicker on such a wet board and in my table posistion. But as people were playing really loose I thought my chances were high enough in the situation.

My question is: Would you consider this a well played hand no matter of the outcome? I mean, I was just lucky that he didn't beat me here.


Regards, Nesslow90

Hi nesslow90!

With AK, I'd normally try to raise preflop to thin the field and to take the lead n the hand, but with 3 limps, a 34.5X raise and 2 calls of the raise, I can flat here or I can raise to 3X the previous bet (1035) if I think some will fold. I don't have a made hand, but I do have a hand with potential.

Here is why I'd normally like to raise preflop. I flop top pair/top kicker but there are 6 opps in the hand and the board has a flush draw. The problem with this many opponents is that I cannot give all of them the wrong odds to draw to a flush if they all stay. The best I can do here is to make a pot-sized bet and see what happens. However, I don't have this many chips, so I'm going to shove the flop.

Shoving the flop (or re-raising preflop) is the way that I'd go about this hand and the opp that called a large raise preflop with K8o (a really bad hand multi-way) would definitely be noted by me.

It was lucky that AK wasn't outdrawn on here, as anyone with a flush draw (to even 1 spade) had the right odds to draw.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Good to hear!

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 nesslow90,

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 dont know what to say about this hand myself really..

I knew this guy didn't have anything good when he called because he had been playing really bad the whole time. Well he did also play bad against me but it payed off in the end... Should I have folded at some point or would this just be a case of bad luck?



EDIT: Huge mistake from my side... didn't even notice the straight draw before so looking away from the outcome I would normally not play this hand that agressive.

This is starting to annoy me.. I lost pretty much all my chips in the hand i posted before but then I played a sit&go in hope of getting some cash. After 2 hours I lost in place 39 and place 36 were "in the money". Then I played another one today. Alittle more then 2 hours later I came out as nr 4 winning allmost 2$ ! So I could finally play some cash games again and jumped on a micro full ring, then this happens...

*** SHOW DOWN ***
pandemon: shows [3c 4c] (a straight, Deuce to Six)
nesslow90: shows [5h 5d] (three of a kind, Fives)
pandemon collected $3.02 from pot

Back to square one..

This is not a question or an analystic request. Just wanted to share it with someone so its out of my system!

Hi nesslow90

Preflop, I think I would have made a standard raise size of 3x + 1bb for each limper making it 10 rather than 12. You are in position and have a strong hand. On the flop, you have top pair top kicker and are facing what sounds like a loose passive calling station. These types of players rarely fold. This means we need to win at the showdown and cant get them to fold.

Your c-bet looks fine. It is bigger than standard, but with a calling station we can expect them to call.

On the turn things get interesting. The loose passive player wakes up and bets. This is usually a sign of a strong hand, or a draw hoping to see the next card cheap. He could have a straight with a 3, or he might have two pair with A2, A5 or A6. I would probably have just called since the villain is normally passive. Reraising is fine. Although your bet sizing was too big. The standard reraise is 3x the original raise making it 48. We often get value owned by making overly large bets. That is, only the hands beating us call.

On the river, I strongly suggest folding to the all in bet. Firstly, calling stations don't make large bets like that without a strong hand. Secondly, looking at the board, trip 2s are possible, a straight, a flush, a full house are all possilbe hands that beat our top pair top kicker.

You had the right idea to take advantage of this weak player, but don't ignore the board and the betting. Sometimes bad players get lucky.

Keep at it!

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi nesslow90,

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.
