Hi nobody257,

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 Basics 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

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 steps completed.

Best of Luck!

Hi nobody257!

The first thing that I see here is that when sitting down in a ring game, I always want to wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds to start playing immediately will be a HUGE drain to my bankroll over time and is something that with a little patience, I can easily avoid.

With a trash hand like 49o, I'd like to muck it immediately, but since the blind was posted, I'll check and hope to see a free flop.

I totally miss the flop and have an opp bet, that is called by two opps in front of me. With one of them most likely having a pair here, I absolutely need to muck to this bet. Even if I hit a 9 or a 4, I'm still behind anyone with a K or Q, so I don't even have outs. I want to be betting when I'm ahead (or when I'm priced in for a draw, which here I don't even have an out to draw to). I do not want to be putting chips into the pot when I'm behind and have no outs. Calling the large raise is something that I would never even consider in a spot like this, as it's just throwing away chips to the opps.

Chasing without being priced in, especially when I don't even have outs, is something that I never want to do at a poker table. I work hard for each and every chip that I have and I do not wan to give them away to the opps.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Excellent!

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!

Hey nobody257,

Brilliant, thanks for answering the questions from the video.

You still need to:

1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in this thread using the Hand Replayer.

3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz.

Please complete those two tasks and we'll get your next bonus to you

Cheers,

I sort of was not aware at the time i had to post a real money game on the hand re-player.
But i did however pass the cash game quiz.

Hello,

Yes, this is a very important step as we gave you a bonus and asked you to play the $0.01/$0.02 Fullring Cash Game tables.

(see above) 1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer.

Did you play the Cash Game tables with this bonus and can you remember the date on which you did?

Brilliant!

Now simply email support@pokerstars.com and ask them to send you all of your cash game only hands from these dates, they will happily send them to you.

Post any of these hands from the 1/2 cent tables and then we can move on from there

Cheers,

Check-calling keep the pot under control and gives the villain a chance to bluff with a wide range.

As played, personally I would have folded to the raise on the turn unless you had a very good read on the villain. With third pair,weak kick and most importantly very little in the pot, it is normally best to just fold. Nice pot though

NOTE: 5 of the 9 seats at your table are empty! This will cost you money. At a full table you can wait for good hands and good spots. At a short handed table, the blinds are hitting you more often and you will be forced to play more hands with marginal holdings. Please try to stay on tables where all the seats are filled. I recommend using the Filter in the Holdem Lobby. Adjust the settings to only show tables with 8 players. This way when you sit down, the table will be at a full 9. That's what I do

GL and have fun at the tables!
