Hi ferentusas,

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 ferentusas!

With QQ in the small blind, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 4 limpers, I'll raise to 7BB or 70.

There then is a min-raise, 3 calls and another min-raise. Here is where I need to make my decision in the hand. I now need to either shove or fold. The question here is... how likely are the opps to fold to a shove, as QQ plays much better against less hands? If I think that some of the opps may fold, I'll easily shove. If everyone would call, I'm going to be in a 6-way pot where while I may be ahead, I'm actually going to be a favorite to lose the hand (I will only win 37% of the time) against 5 random hands.

However, I won't have invested 37% of the chips into the pot, so this is actaully a +EV shove if everyone stays. Due to this, even though I'm going to lose over 60% of the time, it is a positive play to shove here.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi ferentusas!

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 ferentusas!

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.

Also, please attend the 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This session can be found in the Live Training section.

Please let me know when you receive the buy-in and attend the training session.

Hi i lost my 2$.
First Hand i lost with AQ i don't see how i could throw it away.

Second hand with 1010. I think i played it well

Third hand... I was actually trying to bluff out that guy, but as you will see i have choosen wrong time for that.

Fourth Hand biggest mistake i made is that i played that hand...


By the way i watched live training sesion about betting the same day as getting started.

Hi feren,

Your open raise is good. I think we're often beat when we get raised on the turn like this, but your turn bet sizing is so small (.10 into .31) that we may have induced a raise by a draw or KQ type hand. If you bet more like .20c and he raised I think we'd be fine folding as that action would show more strength (and often when raised on the turn, 1 pair is no good).

Hi ferentusas!

It's time to now attend the Cash Basics live training session.

Also, study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

Once you've passed the quiz and attended the live training session, post back here and we'll continue.

Hi ferentusas!

Are you looking for a cash game book or a tourney book? For cash, I'd recommend Small Stakes Hold'em to start with and for tourneys, Winning Poker Tournaments One Hand at a Time (2 book series).

The next buy-in will be credited to your account within the next 24 hours. Please use all of the information learned so far when you use this buy-in to play the 1/2 cent full ring tables ONLY.
Playing any other type of format will prevent you from being able to receive any additional buy-ins from this promotion.

Good luck at the tables and please let us know what happens while playing, especially if there are any hands that you have problems with or lose the buy-in with.
