Hi,

You are eligible for the Bank Roll Builder promo!

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

Hi pastarnache,

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?

Just a note though that it was only the 'Getting Started' session that you needed to attend, you will have to attend the other sessions later in the promotion.

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 pastarnache,

I've asked one of the hand analysers to look at this hand for you. He should do this within the next 24 hours.

Once the hands have been reviewed we can continue on from there.

Hi pastarnache!

With AK (or any other hand that I want to make an open-raise with), I'll make a standard opening raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, I'll raise to 6.

I see a 6-way flop that totally misses me. With this many opps in the hand, one of them most likely hit a part of the board (or already has a pair), so I'm going to check. I want to be betting and putting chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm most likely behind.

The same will hold true for the turn/river. I'll check and if any of the opps makes a sizable bet, I'm folding and looking for a better situation to get my chips into. Especially in the lower stakes games, I do not want to be bluffing very often, as there are so many players that will call anything, it will not be profitable for me to do so. These same players however are great to have when I get a made hand, as I can make value bet after value bet and get paid off on them.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

The fewer opponents that I'm up against, the more likely that a c-bet will work. Against a large number of opps, I try not to c-bet unless I've got some sort of made hand.

Hi pastarnache,

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.

Hi pastarnache

First hand KQs: This is a good enough hand to play and since you have position on the limper, raising is fine. However, the standard bet size would be 3x plus 1x for each limper making it 8 cents rather than 12 cents. By betting so large you are risking getting value owned. This means all the hands you are ahead of will fold thus you win less than you could have. While only the hands ahead of your range will call. You create a situation where you will most likely lose a big pot.

When the bb calls we can assume that he has either a pocket pair, or an A with a decent kicker. You miss the flop. C-betting might be ok against a passive player, but it is pretty much a bluff. If you get played back at, you need to fold. The villain min-raised you. This is normally a tell of a strong hand. I strongly suggest folding now. Even if a K or Q comes on a later street you may very well be out kicked since AK and AQ are definately in the villain's range. Another option would have been to check the flop. This will let you see the turn for free. If you get a K or Q then you might have some showdown value, but you need to keep the pot small even if you hit.

I suggest trying to avoid getting involved in large pots without a strong hand postflop at 2NL. You will get paid often enough when you flop a set or better, so you don't need to take large risks with marginal hands.

Second hand AQo:
Preflop I would once again suggest sticking to standard bet sizes. Make your 3-bet 3x the original raise. Make it 18 cents rather than 15 cents. Your smaller raise looks super strong, but it does give the villain somewhat better odds to continue with the hand. By always using the same bet sizes, you conceal the strength of you hand. This is a good general rule to begin with.

As played, you c-bet the flop and got called again, then fired another barrel on the turn to win the pot. This was a nice and aggressive line that worked welll for you. However, I'm not sure if this was the best spot for double barreling. A read on the villain would help out tremendously here. As played, the villain is rather short stacked. He has already invested about 40% of his stack in the hand. At 2NL people often feel committed in spots like this and will call off the rest of their stack with or without a strong hand. You only have high card, so I am not sure I want to take that risk. Had the villain had a deeper stack like yours, then barreling again on the turn is better because their is the assumption that you will fire another bet on the river. People are less likely to risk a large stack with a marginal hand. Thus you get them to fold more often.

GL and have fun at the tables!
