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!

I've watched the video and passed the basic course. Here's a hand that I played at the play money tables. In this hand, i thought i was aleader with two pair after the flop and raised again.
As you can see i raised 3000 and the player with most chips folded.
My question is maybe i shuld raised less and carry him to the showdown?






Best Regards

Hi,

Hand Analysis


I'd fold this hand from early position. With so many players left to act behind ... many combos of Jx that have us out kicked J7 J8 J9 JT QJ KJ AJ JJ could certainly be in play. As for our post flop line, I would have raised less on the flop and at the most 4x the total pot size. With two pair on the turn our hand is still vulnerable on this draw heavy board, that doesn't mean we should try to fold out a drawing hand by betting huge ... it means that we should bet 3/4 pot for value example: after a smaller raise size on the flop .. pot is t1200 on the turn > bet 900 We may have missed some value from the villain sitting with a deep stack of 8k.


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!




Kind regards,
CannonLee

I have watched the video and passed the course. Here are the three reasons I'd want to make a big bet.
1. To get value from my made hands.
2. To put pressure on an opponent
3. To bluff.

Hi,


Hand Analysis



I like your open raise sizing from early position with this premium hand! Sitting on your stack depth I would lean towards the villains at the table having more respect for your opening!

Post flop, a board of may hit one of the two villains range, maybe KJ KT K9 some flush draw combos .. let's also factor in A2 and A3. This is some what of a narrow range and not really a plausible holding but these are the only hand that would make sense (depends on the reads/tendencies we have on the villains).. so it would be safe to continuation bet as there could be dead money. Well played!



Fantastic!

Your second Bankroll Builder bonus is on it's way to you, great job so far.

Watch this video that will help you on the cash game tables



There are three ways in which you can earn your next bonus.

1) Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus. Let us know if you hit that target
2) If you lose your 2nd bonus at the tables please post the hands where you lost the money with here in this thread. As soon as you post the losing hands we will advise on the next step.
3) If you make a first deposit at PokerStars you will automatically be awarded your remaining bonuses from the Bankroll Builder promotion.

Best of luck to you at the tables and we are here to help you should you have any questions.



Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi,


Where you able to accrue 10VPPs only after receiving the 2nd buy-in? Any VPPs that where earned prior to earning your 2nd buy-in do not count. Please let me know.



Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hello,

Please wait another 24 hours as it can take that long for your system to update with your VPP info. We'll check it again later to see when your bonus gets credited and then we'll advise on the next step.

Cheers,
