The next thing that you will need to do is to attend one of the 'Getting Started With Pokerstars' live training sessions.

Hi MaraCornelia,

We can see that you did attend the session today. Did you find it useful? Did you learn something from it that you didn't know before?

Next Step

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.

Hi MaraCornelia!

With A8s from the button, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Since there are 4 limpers, I'll raise to 70.

I flop the nut flush and have an opp basically shove into me. When the others fold an it gets to me, I'm absolutely raising to put them all-in.

If the opps all check to me, I'd make my standard flop bet like I would with top pair (making it look like I'm trying to price out the opps from a flush draw). If there is 1 opp, I'd bet 1/2 pot. With 2 opps, I'll bet 2/3 pot. With 3 opps, I'll bet 3/4 pot and with 4+ opps I'll make a pot-sized bet. However, if there is a combo draw possible (straight and flush) then I will need to up these numbers.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Next Step

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 MaraCornelia,

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!

Hi MaraCornelia

Let's take a closer look and see where things went wrong in this hand. Preflop you have a great hand and great position. Raising to 8 with 1 limper looks spot on. Well done!

You get called by a guy with a deep stacked villain. Did you get a read on this guy, for example was he playing too many hands, and was he passive or aggressive?

The flop is ok for you since there isn't an A and the Q is definately in the villain's calling range. However, the board has two clubs so a flush draw is possible. The villain checks and we definately want to bet here. Normally, I would suggest about 70% to make chasing a draw unprofitable. Since the villain is deep stacked, you have a strong (but vulnerable) hand, I might go a bit more making it 15 or 16 cents.

The turn makes a flush if the villain is chasing. He checked again. A read would help us know if he is capable of slowplaying a flush, or if this is a sign of weakness. I would fire another bet as you did. Half the pot is fine, but I think you could go a bit smaller, perhaps 15 as well. If he doesnt have the flush, we don't want to scare him out of the hand if he has AQ for example.

The villain has been passive, just calling bets every street. Now on the river he wakes up and makes a large overbet of 1.38 into a pot of 83 cents. This pattern of calling early streets, then making a large bet or raise on the turn or river is usually a tell of a very strong hand. You have an overpair, but it is "just a pair". Folding is the only good option here. Risking our whole stack is not worth it.

Not folding to his river bet was your only mistake in the hand. However, one mistake can be costly. Learning to get away from big one pair hands like AA and KK is an important lesson. The key is to recognize the call call large bet pattern mentioned above.

Don't sweat the results here. Getting away from big hands takes time to learn. If you look at my blog, you will see I am still prioritizing this myself

GL and have fun at the tables!

Roland GTX

PS: Try to play on tables that where all the chairs are filled. It is easier to play. You can adjust the Filter settings from the Holdem Lobby to only show tables with 8 players. That is what I do.
