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

3) Pass the Poker Basic course.

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

Best of Luck!

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!




Hand Analysis

I would have made my pre-flop raise sizing 3x the big blind + 1bb for each limper this will ensure to get some value without bloating the pot to where we can afford to maybe make a hero call.

I like your line post flop, with 3 other players it is safe to check it down, there are certainly enough Ax Kx in these villains range for them to hit this
board solid. good line!


Hand Analysis

With the best starting hand, this is a spot to try and maximize value by making the correct re-raise sizing.. about 3x villain7's bet so 390 to 510 is an okay amount, any bigger sizing than this we risk having villain5 or 6 folding their hand and winning a small pot. Very surprising to see villain5 limp call off
their stack with pocket 3's. Unfortunate that they got there on the turn.




Kind regards,
CannonLee

i had got a few good hands before this hand when i was in position and the cards didn't play out for me so i was little off going into this hand...looking back on the hand i'm glad i played it over aggresively from middle position but is this a winning formula?
