You are eligible for the Bank Roll Builder promo!

Next Step

The first thing that you will need to do is to attend one of the 'Getting Started' live training sessions. Ask the Live Trainer plenty of questions while you are attending, it's the best way to learn.

These sessions can be found daily in the Live Training section.

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

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.

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

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

So the table was fairly tight which is why I chose it...not as many all in maniacs... I'm thinking I could have got more out of this hand but I'm not sure how.
I limped hoping someone after me would raise so I could call and hit the set and stack him...but it didn't play out that way. I called the post flop bet as it was small and I had a pretty nice draw, turns out I was right, but I wasn't going to raise or initiate because of that Q, but I still feel like I lost money here...whaddaya think?

A table dynamic that's tight is not going to make as many mistakes as a loose table. In poker, we make money from other players mistakes.

Limping in would be fine, if every player frequently calls a pre-flop raise and based on the limping action(that may be the case)

But our hand is just so strong and we will have position post flop! I'd open for 3x + 1BB for each limper to try and thin the field down to at most 3way post flop. The less players that are involved in the pot, the better..as it'll increase our overall hand strength/equity and make our decisions a lot easier post flop.

Your turn raise is fine, it looks bluffy and you have a nut hand! But what were you trying to get value from on a 4 card straight board texture? We had TT which limits the combos of other possible Tx.

On the river, I'd bet a little less than half pot to ensure that we get called by a weaker holding. The villain checked the flop, bet the turn and checked river...when they called our turn raise it can mean several things...but I am more inclined to believe that they have a range of Qx weak kicker (maybe even 2pairs) or a range of 2nd pair trying to get to show down.

Well done on the quiz!

Your first Bank Roll Builder buy-in will be awarded to you within the next 24 hours!

Please use this buy-in at a full table of 1/2c 9-Max NLHE, as your training is focused on this game format. If you encounter any difficult situations, post a hand replay in your thread and we'll analyze it.

Good luck at the tables!

Well this one hurt. just before this hand I was up 50cents and doing pretty well...

As you can see I slowed played these but I don't think our AK winner was going anywhere even if I shoved preflop...I chose to slow play and was happy when I got action but as you see it didn't go my way...I think I should have let them go when the 10 hit the turn but I didn't and payed for it...

Two hands later my KK got cracked by the same villain with AK again and I'm bust...

So what's next?

Hi, nice start to your session! This is an unlucky spot post flop. No worries.

With the best "starting hand" in NLHE we want to play this hand as aggressively as possible pre-flop. Slow playing should only be utilized when we have a extremely strong hand/the nuts post flop, all AA will be post flop most of the time is just an over pair in a multi-way pot.

Yes it is perfectly fine to squeeze out one of the villains and in this case villain2!

Let's start with when villain9 5x on the BTN and villain2 in the big blind click back 3bets to 18c making the pot total 31c. This is a potential multi way pot if the we call and villain9 elects to call in position. We want to isolate one of the two villains for a heads up pot all in pre-flop, as it'll greatly increase our hand strength/equity post flop in the pot If we re-raise this pot to 98c to $1.28. vs. , we are over a 93% favorite to win the hand "preflop". So let's get maximum value by setting up the pot size to get stacks in pre-flop. If we flat call, depending on the bet sizing post flop it'll be difficult to get stacks in, as we all have a = stack depth of 100bb+ and ultimately be playing the pot out of position in a multiway pot.

So I enter this table and sit for a couple of orbits to pick up any reads I can and I notice this calling station(villian8)...I mean nothing is getting by this guy...he's limping every pot, betting every street and calling any and all raises and turning over garbage 80% of the time...I watched him call every street and get stacked twice by 2 different players...


The rest of the table is reasonably tight and I figure if I get some cards I can isolate this guy easy...so I join and this is what happens...

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

My mistake here^ was not folding to V6's post flop raise...V6 was tight and I was so focused on V8 that I missed the ringing bell...

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Here I think I played it real well... my raise was to isolate V8...remember he's calling everything and opening every betting round so I'm thinking my K overcard is good here...catching the J on the river I thought was simply a bonus.

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

...and here well what can you say? Edit: Omg I just watched this one again...he checked the flop!! That was the first time he ever checked the flop...I'm such an idiot...

I can't believe I lost my stack to the same lucksack...I watched him for orbit after orbit turn over garbage...but in the 3 hands I go after him he has cards,sucks out...or gets lucky...I was ahead all 3 times A9s to 82o, KJ to QJ and JJ to 55...

very discouraging...

But I welcome you pointing out my mistakes(I did lose my whole buy in after all) and I'm sure I made some that I'm not aware of...I was merely providing my thought process...
Thanks.


well...moving along...what's next?

Edit: BTW I have only accumulated 2.7 vpps...

Hi,

I will ask one of the hand analyser to take a look at these hands for you. He should do this later today sometime.

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