Hi paris1804,

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 paris1804!

The training session that you need to attend is the Getting Started one. The others won't count for this step. Also, please play the play money FULL RING tables and post a hand that you had problems with using the hand replayer.

Hi paris1804!

Is this the training that you attended, VIDEO LINK? There is one called Bet Sizing and it's different than the one that you currently need to watch, which is called Getting Started. If you haven't attended the Getting Started training, please watch the video.

With AJ, or any other hand that I want to make an opening raise with, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With no limpers before me, I'll raise to 3BB or 30.

I flop top pair with a good kicker and when it is checked to me, I want to make a value bet. Standard bets after the flop are based on the size of the pot, so with two opps, I'll bet 2/3 pot or 47 chips. I don't want to bet less than this, because if the opps have one of the draws, I would then be giving them the correct odds to try to outdraw me. Actually, this is a very WET board, as there is a possible flush draw and also multiple possible straight draws.

The same thing on the turn. Due to all the possible draws and two opponents, I will once again bet 2/3 pot (67 chips). Once again also, I don't want to bet less for the same reasons as the flop.
The first opp now check/raises. I need to make a decision here and that is to fold or to re-raise. With only one pair and a good kicker, I'm going to muck here. If I raised, I would need to raise to between 3X the opp's bet (120) and a pot sized raise (220). If I had two pair or a better kicker, I would raise to 200, but the hand that I have is marginal at best, so I'm going to muck and look for a better spot.

The same thing on the river, if I raise, it needs to be to between 3X the opp's bet and a pot-sized raise. Making abnormally small raises are not going to get opps to fold, as they are getting the correct odds to call.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi paris1804!

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.
