Hello,

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

NB: Bookmark this page so that you'll find it easily in the future

First Step

Watch the following video and pay special attention to the tips on retriving and saving your hand history from PokerStars. This will be important for the rest of your promotional journey.


After wacthing this please play some PLAY MONEY FULL-RING (9-Handed) tables at PokerStars and using the Hand Replayer post a hand here in this thread that you have questions about.

Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.


Then when you have that done please have a go at the Poker Basic Course and pass the quiz at the end of the course.

So you have 3 steps to do to begin with and when you have all 3 done we will award you with your first bonus.

1) Watch the 'Getting Started' video
2) Post a 'PLAY MONEY' hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer
3) Pass the Poker Basic course.

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 steps completed.

Best of Luck!

Hey raiser!

I've watched the video and passed the basic course. Here's a hand that I played at the play money tables. In this hand, the opps were all playing very wildly and I wanted to play my hand against them.

Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.

He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Cheers.

Hi,


This is nice spot to have a premium hand.
With one early position limper I like the isolation raise of 4x (four times the big blind)although add at least 1 additional big blind per limper to my raise sizing. When all the re-raising action ensues behind you this is a great spot to play for stacks as you are getting an incredible price and we are only dominated by one hand AA. No worries about the loss, you made the correct play.
Our main objective is to be making profitable decisions with strong starting hands and this is one of those spots to do it in!

Best of luck to you at the tables.
Kind regards,
CannonLee

Brilliant!

You've done all 3 tasks and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

Step Two

Use your first buy-in to only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Post a hand that you had difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyse it for you.

Please watch the following video and answer the question below.



List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

Then 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.

So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus.

1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer.
2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it.
3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz.

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 tasks complete and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!

I have watched the video and passed the course. Here are the three reasons I'd want to make a big bet. To get value from my made hands. To put pressure on an opponent and to bluff.

Here is a hand from the 2NL tables where I'm not sure about my bet sizes. I won the hand, but did I lose value?

Hi,


Your sizing is perfect! You absolutely didn't lose value! This sizing is optimal, anywhere from 3 to 4 times the villains open raise size. (example. villain raises to 6c, hero re-raises to 18c).

Best of luck to you at the tables.
Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hey raiser!

I see that I'm above 10VPP's from playing and even made a couple dollars from playing after losing a big hand. Please advise what I should do next.

Good Job!

You've made enough VPPs to release your 3rd Bankroll Builder buy-in and you'll receive it within the next 24 hours.

There are three ways in which you can earn your final bouns.

1) Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 3rd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 4th bonus. Let us know if you hit that target.

2) If you lose your 3rd bonus at the tables please post the hands where you lost the money with here in this thread. As soon as you post the losing hands we will advise on the next step.

3) If you make a first deposit at PokerStars you will automatically be awarded your remaining bonuses from the Bankroll Builder promotion.

Best of luck to you at the tables and we are here to help you should you have any questions.
