Hi jacobian30,

The next thing that you will need to do is to attend one of the 'Getting Started With Pokerstars' live training sessions. Please let me know after you have attended this session.

Also, you can be practicing on the play money NL ring tables and please post a hand that you were not sure about, using the hand replayer. Here's a short video on how to use the Hand Replayer

Hi jacobian30!

With 25s, there is a limp and then me on the button. The majority of the time, I'm going to fold a pretty bad hand here, but the one type of situation where I'd play it is if I think the opps are going to be tight and passive and would fold. In this situation, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper and raise to 8. I'm not going to call behind here, as I do not want to be in a big multi-way pot with a bad hand.

The flop gives me the bottom part of 2 pair. I get a very small bet from the first opp that is called by the next two opps (bet sizes on or after the flop should be made as a % of the pot, not based on the blind). With 3 opps, since I have no clue where I'm at in the hand due to calling preflop, I'm going to raise here to find out. Due to having three opps in the hand, I'm going make a 3/4 pot raise here, to 15.

Two opps call and I now have the bottom full house and the first opp that min bet before now leads into me for over 2X the pot. This type of bet just screams 'The Nuts' to me, so even though I have a full house, I'm folding. When a very passive player makes a very large bet, it's almost always going to be done with a big made hand. Here, they would most likely only do that with a 3, which has me beat and since I'd only have 1 out to hit quads, I need to muck.

This hand is a good example of why I want to raise preflop, as an opp with 38o should be mucking to a raise, but may try to see a cheap flop into an un-raised pot, especially from the blind.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi jacobian30!

Make sure that you attend the Getting Started live training session, as this will need to be done with the quiz in order to obtain the buy-in.

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, please let us know and your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours of passing it and notifying us. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion.

Use this first buy-in to then play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you get your first buy-in and start playing these games and we'll continue on from there.

Hi jacobian30!

As per my previous post, it states to let us know here when you've passed it (if you don't, we don't know that you did and won't know to verify it and can't credit you for it).

Congrats on passing the quiz. Your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours. 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 real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as you will be able to earn another buy-in should this happen.

Use all that you have learned so far to try 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 analyze them for you.

Also, please attend the 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section.

Please let me know when you receive the buy-in and attend the training session.

Hi jacobian30!

That won't happen until you finish each step in the process. You did get your first buy-in, but you have not posted any hands that you had problems with or lost the buy-in with. This is the first step of many to earning the next buy-in and there are multiple steps required for earning each of them.

Hi jacobian301

This step must be done. You can request the hands from in the client. Requests, then Hand History. They will then be e-mailed to you.

Hi,

In future if you could please use the hand replayer to post hands. I've done this one for you and will ask one of the Hand Analysers to look at it for you.

Once he does this we can continue on from there.

Cheers,

Hi jacobian30

Before we look at your hand, I have a question. Did you buy in for the maximum $2.00 (100BB)? If not, I suggest doing so in the future. Your stack size has a lot to do with how to play a hand and which hands to play. Your 99 hand is an example of this. Let's take a closer look.

Calling preflop with a pocket pair and position on the raiser can normally be fine. You hope to flop a set or check-fold the hand. You risk a little for a potentially very large reward. In this spot though, you only have 52 cents in your stack. This means that even if you double up, you are not winning more than 26bb. The times you miss a set and have to fold will cost more than you are winning. It also means that you are risking a larger portion of your stack.

Having a short stack limits your hand range and your options. You need a deeper stack to play prospective hands such as medium pairs, suited connectors and Axs with a weak kicker.

When you are short stacked your best option is to always open aggressively with a raise and often being prepared to commit with the hand you are playing.

In this spot, a read would help tremendously. If the villain was laggy, playing too many hands, then I would suggest reraising him all in. Normally you want to reraise 3x, but here that would be half your stack. So, just keep it simple and move all in.

If the villain was tight, or an unknown, then I would just fold the hand. It would be better to wait for a spot where you can open raise from late postion. This would give you initiative in the hand and often win you the blinds.

As played, you want to plan ahead in situations like this. If you intend on calling every street, then it is much better to be the aggressor yourself since the villain might fold. If you intend to fold to a later raise, then it is better to fold on the flop rather than investing more money.

Without a read, I think folding preflop would have been best. Raising might be ok, but calling with a short stack risks too much of our stack. Creates a spot where we more than likely will have to fold on the flop. Nearly half the deck is overcards to our 99 here. All of these are scare cards.

In general, I lean towards being cautious in spots that are unclear.

I hope this helps!

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi jacobian30,

I don't see you on the list of attendees for last nights or todays 'Bet Sizing' sessions.

You will need to attend this session again in order to move on in the promotion.

Let me know as soon as you have attended the 'Bet Sizing' session.

Cheers,
