Hi XCM_86,

You are eligible for the Bankroll Builder promotion, good job!

Remember though that you will need to do the steps after you are asked and not before as doing them before delays our system.

Hot Tip#1 : Bookmark this page so that you'll find it easily in the future

First Step

First up please watch the following video and pay special attention to the tips on retrieving and saving your hand history from PokerStars. This will be important for the rest of your promotional journey.


Let me know as soon as you've had a chance to watch it.

Cheers,

Raiser

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.

Hi XCM_86

Nice hand Preflop I was happy to see you raised all the limpers. AK rates to be the best hand so raise for value. However, the standard bet size is 3x plus 1x for each limper. So, I recommend raising to 50 chips rather than 30. Hopefully this will get some of the limpers to fold. Raising too little encourages players to continue with the hand. This is very dangerous against multiple opponents.

You flopped top pair. As a general rule whenever you flop a strong hand bet for value. You did bet and the big stack moved all in. At play money calling an all in with top pair top kicker is usually fine. At real money tables we need to be more careful. In this spot it seems unlikely that the villain would make such a large raise if he had AA or trips. Calling seems good, and it was the right choice. Well done

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi XCM_86,

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 XCM_86,

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.

Hello

I have a question.
What I need to do if I played at 1/2c tables on my mobile device and I lose my buy-in?
I cannot save hand history on mobile client, and i got only 0.54c left. It's not enought to play more games.

What should I do now?

Hello

I have played some 1/2 cent Cash games.

That was a bad hand



I have Qs Td so not wery strong hand. I just raise to 1x.
Flop was great for my Tc Qd 5h top two pairs for my QT.
I bet fir value 6 cent and my opponent call.
OK In this moment i thought he has something like QK or QJ, JT or JA.
Turn was 6h. I still with two top pairs, so I bet one more time, and hi call !!!
River 9s, i bet again,
and that was mistake.

Hi XCM_86

You said "Qs Td so not wery strong hand. I just raise to 1x". It is extremely important to learn that you should never adjust your prflop bet size because of your cards! This is easy for opponents to exploit. They can simply reraise you every time you bet small because the know you have a weak hand and fold every time you bet big because they know you have a strong hand. I strongly suggest not doing this in the future. Bet the same regardless of your cards. That way the opponents will not know if you have AA or a complete bluff. The strength of your hand will be concealed.

Furthermore, min-raising limpers is not good. It invites them to continue rather than fold. It builds the pot in an unclear spot.

As played you flopped top two pair. This is good, but notice that the board is connected. High cards are often likely holdings for an opponent. So, KJ is definately in the villain's range. I would suggest betting slightly more on the flop and turn, about 70% of the pot, in order to give poor odds to the villain if they are on a drawing hand. It also gives you more value if they have something like AQ and think their hand is good.

On the river, a straight is possible. There are two ways to approach this. One is to raise as you did. But when you get reraised you have a tough choice without a read. The villain has been passively calling all hand and now reraises. This looks strong. Without a read I would suggest folding. The other option is to check-call. The villain might check down the hand which is fine. Or, this might induce a bluff bet, or a presumed value bet from pocket pairs or AQ type of hands. It also keeps the pot under control in the event the villain actually has a straight. This seems like the best way to approach the river here.

GL and have fun at the tables!
