I missed the session yesterday because of my work, I probably won't catch the next session because it's at 2 am. I'll try and catch next Saturdays live training!

Not to worry, we understand that because of the time zones it can be difficult to attend these sessions.

Instead of waiting for a week please watch this video instead and pay close attention to the parts about saving hand histories as this will be important for the rest of your bankroll builder experience.


Please let me know after you have watched it, cheers

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.

So I just sat at the table and checked my way into the flop, where I hit a full house. I managed to get 3 times the amount of chips I had out of this hand, but the betting I did was just random, how can I get more out of a hand like this?

Hi Appelsapman1!

The first tip that I can say is to wait until the BB to start playing at a table. Having to pay extra blinds will be a large drain to your bankroll over time.

Since I have no choice to be in (would be an easy fold if I waited until the BB), I'll happily see the family pot for no extra chips.

I flop a full house and when it's checked to me, I'll lead out here for a pot-sized bet. This way, I can start to build a pot and also to give any opp with the case 9 or overpair, the wrong odds to draw.

The turn brings a straight draw into a 4-way pot. I need to make another pot-sized bet here, for the same reasons as betting the flop, however, this is more than my remaining stack. Due to this... I'm shoving the turn.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

Hi Appelsapman1,

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 Appelsapman1,

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 Appelsapman1,

Apologies about that and you should have it later today. Let me know if it doesn't come through within the next few hours.

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.
