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

Hi ZEMR29!

Nice hand! You definately want to play AA agressively, especially on playmoney tables where people call lightly. Your preflop 3-bet was nicely sized, well done

The flop is not great, but you are drawing to the nuts. Your flop bet is good. However let's look at the turn. Threre is 360 in the pot and you only have 258 behind. I suggest simply moving all in. Your bet size will be perfect. Also, betting smaller as you did leaves you with too little for a significant bet on the river. Also, if the villain is chasing a flush like you are, you need to bet while they still think they have a chance at winning. If you wait until the river they will know if they made there draw or not and will fold all the times they miss.

I hope you keep getting aces, and winning

GL and have fun 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!

The reasons why someone make a big bet is for

- to bluff people of decent hands
- to gain value from very strong hands

Hi ZEMR29!

Please post the 1/2 cent FULL RING hand where you lost the first buy-in with. Both posted hands are play money. This is necessary before you can go to the next step.

Hi ZEMR29! You ran into a cooler here, with you and villain making the obvious play of getting all the money in pre-flop with your monster hands.
You opened for 10c pre-flop, but I think you should stick with the standard size of 3bb (6c) in order to disguise the strength of your hand, because observant villains will take notes on your bet sizes. If you open for 10c with AA, but less with weaker hands, they'll know exactly what you have, so always use the same size.
As played, the small blind calls and the big blind re-raises (3-bets) to 30c. Your 4-bet to 70c is a good size, as 2.5x the 3-bet sets up an easy shove on the flop. Here, villain 5-bet jams, so you can snap-call knowing you're never behind.
Villain usually has KK or QQ here, but sometimes has AK, and - on very rare ocassins - the other AA. Against that range, you'll win about 84% of the time. Unfortunately, you had bad luck this time, when villain flopped a set and you couldn't hit your two-outer. It hurts to have your aces cracked, but you have to accept that against KK specifically, you'll take a bad beat about 1 in every 5 times you're in this situation.

For the next stage of the promotion, be sure to play on full ring 9-handed tables (not 6-max), as the tight range of starting hands recommended by the PSO courses works best in a full ring.

Good luck!
Cheers,
Arty

That's great to hear! It takes 48-72 hrs for those VPPs to show up in our promo system, so please be patient but your next bonus will be in your account soon.

To earn your fourth and final Bankroll Builder bonus, keep applying at the $0.01/$0.02 cash tables the principles you learned until you have earned a further 10 VPPs. Should you lose your bankroll, please post the losing hand and we'll give you our analysis, followed by the bonus.

I wish you well!
