Hello 777Floppy777,

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 Basics 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 777Floppy777,

You need to post a play money hand played at a full ring play money table. Play money tables can be found in the "Hold'em" section of the main client lobby. Choose "Play Money" (at far right), then "No Limit."

Only play full ring game (9 seats); do not play any tournaments or sit and goes as doing so will make you ineligible for further bonuses.

Good luck at the tables!

Joss

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 777Floppy777!

With QT on the button, I have a limp, then a very large abnormal raise in front of me. I'm going to muck QT here and these are the reasons. First, while I do have larger cards, I'm behind any A, K, Q with a higher kicker or pair. Secondly, if I would call this bet, I'm going to have over 1/3 of my stack in the pot, which means that I'm pot-committed. This means that the only plays that I should consider are to shove or fold and QT is not a good enough hand to shove with. If I would call this very large bet, then fold, it will be a very large chip leak that any observant opponent will see and take full advantage of.

When faced with a very large bet, I want to only be playing premium hands and to muck anything that would be marginal.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

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 one hand that you had difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze 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 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!

Hi 777Flooppy777,

A reminder to play FULL RING (9 seats) games only as failure to do so will disqualify you from the Bankroll Builder program!

Take care,

Joss
