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 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!

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.

Hi comedyvince!

Two things first. One, this promotion is ONLY for full ring tables. Playing a 6-max table after you receive a bonus will make you inleigible for any additional bonuses in this promotion. Secondly, when sitting at any ring table, wait for the big blind. Paying the extra blinds to immediately start playing will be a very large drain to your bankroll.

With Q7, I'd like to fold this bad hand preflop, but since I've already posted, I'll check and hope to see a free flop. If any of the other opps bets, I'll muck.

The flop totally misses me and when it checks to me, I'm going to check behind and see a free turn card. I don't want to bet here, as I can easily be behind any of the other opps since I have nothing. If I did bet, due to the number of opps, I'd have to bet 3/4 the size of the pot and I do not want to do that with absolutely nothing.

The turn gives me 2nd pair. Here, I am going to make a value bet when it checks to me and will size it at 3/4 pot, 94 chips, (due to having 3 opps).

The river puts another overcard out there and when it checks to me, I will check behind and go to showdown. My hand does have showdown value, but I don't want to bet due to not knowing if I have the best hand or not.

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 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!
