Hi goldcourage,

I don't see you on the list of attendees for the 'Getting Started' session.

It's really important that you complete this step so I can move you forward in the promotion.

It's ONLY the 'Getting Started' session that I need you to attend. (See post above)

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

Hi goldcourage,

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.

I will find a good hand that I lost and post it with the hand analyzer.

Thank you..

I believed I played this hand badly.I was in BB position with pocket tens. Should I have folded preflop, after the flop or continued like I did?

Hi goldcourage!

With pocket 10's, there is a huge abnormal raise and three calls after it before it gets back to me. When the action gets back to me, I'm going to fold pocket 10's here and here's why.
I'm up against 3 opps, so the odds are that I'm up against multiple overcards (maybe even all 4 cards) and there also could be an overpair that has me crushed. If I was up against one loose opponent and only one opponent, I'm going to shove here preflop, otherwise I'm going to fold.
I definitely don't want to call, as this not only makes me pot-committed (so I would want to shove before the opps see a card that beats me), but when I call with a pocket pair to try and setmine, I want to have at least 15X the bet amount in both my stack and the opp's stack.....I only have 2X the bet amount.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi goldcourage,

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 goldcourage,

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!

Plese instruct me on where to go to find these games.
The lowest I see is for 1cent in the micro area.

Hi,

On the PokerStars Main Lobby click these tabs:

Hold'em>>No Limit>>Micro

Scroll down and locate a table that is titled like this:

$0.01/$0.02, NL, Fast, 9 Players.

If you are still unable to locate 2nl(0.01/0.02) full ring (9-max)
you can click a button labeled "Hold'em Ring Game Filter".


Good luck at the tables!

Hi, I guess I still have a lot to learn. I lost my entire Bankroll already even with AK. Take a look.

Hi gold,

Preflop raise looks good. On the flop heads up I would generally continuation bet larger than 1/3rd of the pot, you only have AK high and don't want to encourage loose calls by hands like 2nd pair or worse pairs (I assume top pair will call no matter what). His raise to .09c I would call only because he's giving us such a good price. We have to call .05c into a pot that is now .25c, and we have 10 outs to improve to top pair/top kicker or the nut straight so 3.5-1 to improve our hand.

On the turn is were it goes bad for us imo. I don't like leading again, as most of his range to of hands that is raising the flop are top pair+ and that means he now has a lot of hands that are trips or full houses. I just don't see him folding anything he raised the flop with now, we are way behind (can't realistically hope that an ace or king is good now if we hit one, and could be drawing completely dead if he's got a full house already). I would just recommend checking and folding on the turn here.

River the same logic applies, we are almost certainly beat, the bet won't get him to fold any of his range and when he raises our bet, we are only beating a bluff, basically a busted draw KQ is it, and it seems very unlikely he'll have this. Most of the time we're looking at trips or better here. It was good early in the hand, but it's important to recognize when we're in bad shape and get away from the hand without putting more money in.
