Hi there,

I just started two days ago with PSO training, played in a couple of play money matches and some of your open skill tournaments. The basic course helped a lot refreshing my memory on the insides of the game and I have recently passed the basics end quiz. I want to take this a step further and I was wondering if i am eligible for the bankroll promotion and additional training.

looking forward for your reply

cheers

Hi Ahoy6969,

You are eligible for the Bank Roll Builder promo!

The next thing that you will need to do is to attend one of the 'Getting Started With Pokerstars' live training sessions. Please let me know after you have attended this session.

Also, you can be practicing on the play money NL full 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

Hi Ahoy6969!

With AJ (or any other hand that I want to raise with), I'm going to make a standard opening raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Since there is one limper, I'll raise to 80. By keeping my bet sizes standard, it helps to conceal the strength of my hand.

I see a 3-way flop that totally misses me. When the first opp checks, I'm going to make a c-bet of 2/3 pot (340). I don't want to be betting less on the flop than I did preflop, because it says to the opponents that I had a strong hand preflop that is now a weak hand.

The turn is both good and bad. I have top pair, but there is a possible made flush. I'd normally bet another 2/3 pot, but since this is most of my stack, I'm going to shove.

The keys here are to not bet less on the flop than preflop if I'm going to make a bet. By doing so, if the opp did have hearts, they are getting the correct odds to try to outdraw me, which is something I want to avoid if possible.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Please also let me know when you have attended the training session (or if the times of it don't work for you).
