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!

Hi ironandwire,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post
With KQ OTB I'm looking to open raise when its folded to me. We can get value from worse hands and if they fold we win the blinds uncontested.

As played, I think we have an opportunity to put a semi-bluff bet OTT with our flush draw and expect to get called by worse draws. I think we have missed some value in this hand by playing the hand passively both preflop and post flop. Hopefuly, throughout the next steps of Bankroll Builder promotion you will see some advancement in your game

GL 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!

Is it the right move to fold king three suited without seeing the flop? Thanks!

Hi I have completed the three tasks that were required to continue on with the bankroll builder promo. I played the 1/2 full ring real money game which unfortunately made me lose 2 cents. I also have read the cash game course and passed the corresponding quiz. To answer the question, the three reasons why a player makes a big bet, the reasons are the following:

1. to put pressure to other opponents
2. to protect against strong draws
3. to gain value from very strong hands

I hope to continue on with the training and to win next time I play the cash games.

Hi ironandwire,

Absolutely! Folding is the right play With 5 players left to act behind us our hand is too weak to raise. We could potentially raise a suited King from the BTN to steal the blinds though.

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.

Hi, I played the 1/2 cent cash game as part of the bankroll builder promo. I was required to get 10vpps to continue on with the promotion. Unfortunately, I lost the money. Below is the hand that I lost. Thanks and hope to continue on with the training.

Hi ironandwire

I think with AKo OOP I would prefer 3betting and plan to get my money in preflop when its CO vs Blind. The rare occasion I'm flatting AKo is if there is a tight player opening from EP. I would make it 0.26 (3x + 1bb when OOP).

When we do call OOP without initiative we are bound to play fit or fold on most flops that we do not hit. Here is a kind of flop that I think we should x/f on because floating OOP is very tricky and hard to show a profit with. As played, the turn should be an easy fold for us.

Brilliant,

Your Bankroll Builder progress is moving along nicely and you will receive your 3rd bonus later today!

Step Three

Now we really want you to up your game! Your challenge is to earn 10 VPPs after getting today's buy-in.

Note that any VPPs that you have earned up to this point won't count, only those earned AFTER you get your 3rd buy-in.

When you hit your target of 10 VPPs we will award you with your final Bankroll Builder bonus. Let us know when you reach the target.

Also, if you make a deposit at this stage we will also award you with your final bonus.

Best of Luck at the tables and let us know as soon as you have earned the 10 VPPs or if you make a deposit.
