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!

He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Hi D0M41N!

With K9 from the BB, when the SB completes, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. The SB's complete counts as a limp, so I'll raise to 4BB or 80.

I flop top pair and when the opp checks to me, I'll make my standard value bet of 1/2 pot (60). By keeping my bets standard, it helps to keep the opps guessing as to the strength of my cards.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi, it looks like im missing something.. i get 69%... and i think i fail on any of these questions...

1)One opponent is particularly tight and passive. How Which of the following adjustments to your strategy makes sense (multiple correct answers)
(I put here "bluff more", because he will fold more)

2)How many outs do you need in order to have a coinflip on the Flop? (having (22))

3)You are holding on the button QS 10S. Blinds are $1/$2. Everybody folds to you. You raise to 6 and both blinds call. Flop is QH 8H 3D, giving you top pair. The small blind bets the pot ($18). The big blind raises to $50. What’s your play?

i put all in... because i have top pair.. and i have to protect my top pair, maybe there is a draw of flush, so i will protect my top pair betting...

I dont know about the other questions but i only have doubt about these in particular... what chapters should i re-read? because im trying this 2 times at a day! and i keep failing.. thx for read! greetings, D0M41N.

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!

Hi,

Each bonus is worth $2

You must only use this bonus to play 1/2 cent Fullring (9-handed) tables. This will give you a 100 Big Blind buy-in.

If you use the money to play any other games you will not be able to receive any more bonuses.

Remember to save your hand histories and post you hands using the Hand Replayer.

Your next 3 steps are:

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.

Once you have completed these 3 steps you will be credited with your 2nd bonus.

Hi,

Sorry for the confusion. I said 1/2 cent which is $0.01/$0.02 or '2NL' as it's sometimes referred to.

Please play $0.01/$0.02

Cheers,

This is how i lose my first promo! haha, what i did wrong? i call because he was the big stack, and i thought he was bluffing.. or maybe JJ...

About the question, why a player may want to make a big bet?

For win a monster, or a strong hand.
For protect a strong hand against a good draw.
For bluff, and make another players to fold.

Now i will try to past the cash quiz... thanks for the help, greetings, D0M41N.

Hi D0M41N! I'll analyse this hand for you.

You have A4o in the small blind, and there's a raise by the player UTG. I'm never calling a raise with A4 in the blinds, because it's a marginal hand at best and it loses money in the long run. Many beginners get into trouble with ragged aces and lose money when they make top pair and are out-kicked. It's particularly bad to play A4o in the small blind, because you'll be out of position post-flop. It's very hard to make money when you're OOP. See my blog on this subject. A4 is a trash hand, because it's dominated by all the better aces (A5+) and it can't make the nut flush using both cards. It should be very easy to fold this hand pre-flop in your situation. Notice that the initial raise was both bigger than the standard size of 3bb (so he's repping a big hand), and also it came from UTG. Early position raises indicate monster hands like TT+ and AQ+. A4 is not beating any of the hands in that range.
As played, you call and the flop comes AT7. It is standard to check to the last raiser in this spot, as he'll be making a continuation bet almost always. He's certainly betting with AK/AQ, but he'll probably bet with hands like QQ/JJ too. If he has QQ, then you get value by calling his bluff. When you lead out, you're never getting called by worse. You're "valueowning" yourself. By betting, you allow villain to fold any worse hands (e.g. JJ), so you don't get any value. When villain raises here, he's hardly ever bluffing. This flops hits his UTG opening range hard, and now he wants to build a big pot. I'd expect him to have AQ at a minimum, but sometimes he'll have a set of tens or even aces. You should be folding to the raise, because your hand is almost drawing dead against villain's range.
Instead, you call and the turn brings a jack. If villain had JJ and was bluffing the flop, he just made a set. If AJ is actually in his tight UTG range, then he just made top two pairs. Right now, the only hands in this villain's range that you beat are KK and QQ, but I don't think he's ever raising the flop and then barrelling the turn with an underpair. Villain puts you all in, but you can't call this bet, even though you might feel pot-committed with such a small stack remaining. Against a hand like AK, you have just 3 outs to improve and you don't have the right price to do so.

Be more careful with hand selection in future, and don't fall into the habit of calling in the blinds. In the SB especially, you should usually enter the pot with a (re-)raise, but it's far better to fold anything but the top 5% of hands in that seat.

Hope this helps! Best of luck with the next stage of the promo!
Cheers,
Arty
