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.

Cheers.

Hi NoS_I_Am1!

With K7o from UTG, I'm going to muck this preflop. When playing out of position, especially from early position, I only want to be playing premium hands. I'll even muck AQo from UTG, since it's so easy to be behind, along with the huge positional disadvantage. Patience and mucking marginal/bad hands preflop is a key that winning players need to have.

If I was in the hand, with an A on the board and multiple players in the hand, I want to check/fold the flop, turn or river unless my hand improves. There are too many opps out there that will not fold an ace and anyone that has an ace here has me crushed. I want to be putting chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind.

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!

Feel like I could've got more from that hand, especially if i had bet the river.

Hi, RoyalRaise85
I have posted the hand and passed the cash game quiz. But I'm not able to watch the bet sizing video at the moment as I still have to install a newer version of flash player. I will only be able to install it in about 2 weeks because a password which I do not have is required.

Great, we've credited you with your 2nd bonus and one of the Hand Analysis guys will review your hand within the next 24 hours

Once he does this I'll advise on the next step.

Hi NoS_I_Am1,

I like the call preflop given the price. I think we can both lead turn and x/c with our overcard, OESD, and backdoor flush. As played, I think I prefer betting the turn for value from worse one pair, 2pair, and flush draws and plan to bet the river too when called.
