Hello elliottgoodi,

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 retrieving 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!

Hi elliottgoodi!

With 44 in the hijack, I get a limp, min-raise and 2 calls of the raise in front of me. I'm going to call here and try to setmine. If I did raise, I would need to make a standard raise, which for this situation would be a pot-sized raise to 21. I do not want to min-raise, as all that will do is to give the opps the correct odds to call me.

I see an 8-way flop and hit bottom set. There is a bet of 20 and two calls in front of me. I need to raise here, which with this many opps, I need to make a pot-sized raise (149). However, I've only got 154 chips, so I'm going to shove the flop.

The key with this hand is to make standard bets/raises. I want to keep these standard, so that the opps will be continuously guessing as to the cards that I have. When players bet either too small (marginal hand) or too big (monster hand), it turns their cards face up, so that an observant opponent can use this information against them. I want to keep them guessing.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

P.S. Please let me know when you have watched the video and passed the quiz.
