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 PokerKingZ42! I love your avatar! I'll analyse the hand in post #4.

AJ is a trouble hand, but it plays pretty well heads up, so when a villain limps in (just calls the blind), raising to try and isolate him is a good idea, but your sizing is too small. Minraising to 60 still gives a good price to other players. A more standard open is 3bb + 1bb per limper, so I'd make it 120 chips in this spot. As played 4 players call. The flop comes K97, so all you have is one overcard and some backdoor draws. Villains should normally check to the raiser (you) and you could make a continuation bet, but here the BB donks out with quite a large bet. This should be an easy fold. He usually has a king, and you only have 3 outs to beat that, and you're not getting the right price to call. Nice fold, well played.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty

Just wanted to say thanks for your review and input. I find bet sizing to be a tricky concept...still trying to wrap my head around how to size bets relative hand strength in different positions. eg: AKs from the button vs from UG or MP2 or BB etc. Is the bet size for a monster hand always 4-6 BB's or does that change based on position? I am practicing lots and have some success in ring games and small field tourneys , but I find that in a big tourney like the WCOOP satellites with 12 to 20K players I often sit in place 10-12 for about 3/4 of the tourny (NTM) then it all falls aart on a hand like AK,AQ,AJ or top pairs...I'll get beat by some 63s or 89 or whatever. I guess I have to raise bigger to protect my satck and hand value.
thanks again
dave
