Hello Bjornic,

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!

Preceding this hand, he played Aces very aggressively on a wet board, as well as raising with Q7o so he seemed rather unpredictable. I don't really know whether my decision was justified, I'd just like some help in interpreting the situation.

Hello,

Please post use the Hand Replayer ONLY to post hands for review, this is an important step in the promotion. (Please see post above for instructions on how to use the Hand Replayer)

Once you post your hand using the Hand Replayer we will analyse it for you and advise on the next step

Cheers,

Thanks for that, we'll have the hand analysis done shortly. You didn't mention if you'd passed the Poker Basic quiz so we'll check that from our side meantime. Once we know you've passed I'll give you your next steps

Hi Bjornic!

With A7o from the button, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With two limpers, I'll raise to 5BB or 400. I don't want to raise less than this as I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me.

I flop bottom pair and when the three opps check to me, since I raised preflop, I will follow up with a c-bet on the flop. This will be my one shot to win the pot, as if I'm raised, I will fold and if I'm called, I'm not putting another chip into the pot unless my hand improves. The key here is the sizing of the bet as I want to size my post-flop bets based on the pot-size, number of opps and board texture. With 3 opps, I will bet 3/4 pot (510 chips). Once again, I do not want to bet less or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me.

When seat 1 shoves, I now need to muck, as they most likely have an overpair to mine. I want to be putting my chips in when I'm ahead in the hand, not when I'm behind.

Hope this helps and good luck 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!
