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.

Thanks for posting these hands for review.

I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at them for you and offer some feedback.

He should do this later today and then we can continue on from there.

Hi didanz!

With QJs, especially if the table has been passive, I'll be happy to call behind and see the flop. The flop gives me a gutshot straight draw and an opp leads for 120 chips into a pot of 70. Even though I can win the hand with a 10, I'm not getting the correct odds to draw here, so I need to muck my hand. I have 4 outs which at 2% per out, is worth 8%. My pot odds here is 38.7%. Since the pot odds are higher, I need to fold.

J3s from UTG is nowhere near a strong enough hand to raise with, so I'm going to muck here. Just because cards are suited does not mean that I want to always be playing them. I'll show some patience and wait for a better hand.

With AK, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. There are 3 limpers, so I will raise to 6BB or 60.

I see the flop 7-ways and it totally misses me. When it checks to me with this many opps, I'm going to check and hope to get to see the turn card for free. When the opp in position bets 10 and everyone else calls, I'm going to call the 10 here and see the turn.

The turn misses me and when it checks to me, I'll check again. The opp now bets 30 and three opps call. If I think that none of the opps has a 9, I'm going to call the 30 and see the river, as I do have the correct odds to do so. If I think they do have a 9, then I'll muck.

The river is another miss, and a different opp bets 10. If this opp has any tendency to bluff, I'm going to call here, as I only have to be right 3% of the time to break even.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

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, 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,

I am having problems calculating outs.

Doing daily exercises this may take some time.

Thanks

Hi didanz,

No problem, take all the time you need.

It's better anyway to spend time on each step rather than trying to rush through the promotion.

All this will make you a better player in the long run so it's time well spent.

Just let us know when you pass the quiz.

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.

For beginners it's not advised to play short handed tables, so if 2/3 seats become empty it's a good idea to stand up also. As you become better at ranging opponents and playing an aggressive game you will feel more comfortable playing short handed tables but for now try to stick to the full ones.

Good luck!
