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.

Hello GZ-frost,

Thank you for that and we can see that you have attended. The next step is to indeed post some hands for review but NOT tournaments hands, remember that the Bankroll Builder promo is for cash game play only.

Next up play some Play Money Fullring (9-Handed) tables. Make sure that the tables are full, that is, no empty seats. All Play Money tables will be designated as 'Fun' tables in the PokerStars client.

Here's a short video about how to find the Play Money tables at PokerStars.


Once you encounter a hand that has left you facing a difficult decision or one that cost you a lot of chips save the hand history and post it here using the Hand Replayer.

Here's a short video on how to use the Hand Replayer.


Once you post a hand from one of the Play Money 'Fun' FullRing tables we will analyse it for you and we can continue on from there.

Great, thanks a lot

I've tried to put the video on here, but I'm having one problem. I saved my hand in the Hand Replayer and created a link with the link type: Forum/Blog. I tried copying this:

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

to the manage attachments section but it won't upload.

Any advice

Thanks

Lol nevermind that error.

Rookie mistake there

Yeah anways the video. As you can see dealt AA. I felt I was lucky to end up winning this hand. I was against more people than I wanted to be and what can I do differently to make sure I still get paid off, but reduce the chances of someone hitting two pair or one of their draws?

Thanks a lot again

Sorry about that, it was a zoom game

Here is a fun game:

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Here, I'm not sure what my turn bet should be. Should I try to take down the pot with so many scare cards out there or is this just a bad river? I find this happens quite a bit with low two pair

Hi GZ-frost!

35s from UTG is not a strong enough hand to be playing, so I'm going to immediately muck it. When out of position, I want to only be playing better hands.
When I do play a hand, I also want to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper, not to min-raise.

On the turn, if I was in the hand, I'd make a pot-sized value bet because there are 3 opps in the hand. if there was only one opp, then I'd bet 1/2 pot. This way, if someone has a single club or a straight draw, they are making a negative play by calling.

The river is a problem card, because anyone that has an A or any other pair just outdrew me. Due to this, I want to get to showdown as cheaply as possible and will check and call a small bet or fold to a larger bet.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi GZ-frost,

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!

Received the buy in within an hour, much appreciated

I will be attending a bet sizing session in the next few days. Anyways, this hand cost me a little bit. Just wondering if the raise was the right move and whether or not it is a weak fold. He showed his bluff after my fold. A 2o

Thanks for all the help

Hey,

Here's a hand I like a lot more, but find it hard to get max value. Do you think I got the most value i could have and if not, how should I play this hand?

Thanks,

That would be great to get some help


Also, I have more than 10 VPP points now. Does this qualify me for another buy-in or do I need to take the cash game quiz too?

Thanks

Hi GZ-frost

Small pocket pairs are tough to play since pretty much all cards on the flop will be over cards. The way I play them vs a limper is dependant on the villain. If I think there is a good chance he will fold to a raise, then I would raise as you did preflop. If he is pretty loose and likely to call, then I would see a cheap flop and hope to flop a set.

As played, c-betting is fine, but when you get reraised, I suggest just folding. The only hand you are beating is a bluff. Save your stack for better spots.

GL and Merry Christmas!
