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
Hand Analysis


I noticed that you posted a big blind 50chips in LP just to get dealt in, I'd suggest waiting for the big blind position..as frequently posting will add up over time.

This hand I would have just checked our option instead of raise. We are sitting on a 20bb stack depth and several villains have us covered...min raising will only entice action and inflate the pot while we are holding a marginal hand...with an inflated pot any post flop sizing that is 2/3 to full pot that we either call, bet or raise will make us pot committed with minimal equity to an open ended straight. On the turn I would have checked back to try and peel the open ended straight as this equity is very minimal. On this board texture there are enough Kx and flush combos that the villain could have in their range. Nice pot and double up!

Hope this helps.

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!

3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?
- To put a lot of pressure on opponents
- To bluff people off decent hands
- To gain value from very strong hands

and I've passed the cash game course. Cheers

Hi,
Hand Analysis

Sitting on a 50bb stack depth when the action folds around to you in the CO (cut off)it's safe to open this hand for a raise and a sizing of 2.5x is okay. You will most likely have position on the villains in the blinds if they elect to call. This hand should be proceeded with caution, our mind set should be a fit or fold approach, meaning "hit a set (three of a kind or flop equity to a straight draw"

Post flop comes all hearts and we have the initiative in the pot being the pre-flop raiser and in position when checked to.

This is a brave play, but we could make our continuation bet sizing about 2/3 pot, if the villain has any range of cards that have a decent heart they will call, the same applies to if they have a range of Kx with no heart..they'll check/call for pot control or raise to get value from a possible heart draw. When the villains calls our flop bet we can be fairly certain they do not have 7x in their range.

The turn is the worst card in the deck for us, I'd just shut down and wait for a better hand to extract value. The river is a standard fold, we have at best a super thin bluff catcher but based on the villains line on this board texture there are more hands that beat us than we are ahead of.


Hope this helps.



Fantastic!

Hello,

You will need to post the losing hand for analysis before we are able to credit you with another bonus.

One way you can find the hand is to email support@pokerstars.com and ask them to send you all of your Cash Game only history for the date on which you lost your money.

They will happily send it to you.

Once you post the hand where you lost the money we can continue on from there.

Cheers,

Raiser

Hi FreshTeddy! I'll take a look at the cash hand where you lost a big pot.

You have ATs in the SB, and there is a HUGE open raise of 40c by the button. While it's possible villain is a maniac that's just shoving his money in with junk, it is a terrible mistake to call a bet of this size with your hand. Since calling is out of the question (you can't call off half your stack and then fold if you miss the flop) you have to push all in or fold, and the latter option is far better. Even if villain is getting his money in with total garbage, ATs will only win about 60% of the time. To get my stack in pre-flop, I want a true monster hand. Basically, I'm only getting my money in with AA, KK or QQ. Sometimes I'll stack off AK, but only if I've seen villain make huge overbets with trash hands.
Here you shove your ATs and villain snap calls with pocket kings. He got his money in as a big favourite. You'll only win this hand 32% of the time. If villain had AA, you'd be in terrible shape.
By going all in pre-flop, you're basically just gambling and hoping to get lucky. That is the last thing you should be doing when you're working with a small bankroll. For long term success at poker, you need to practice discipline and patience. You want to be getting your money in as a favourite, not an underdog.

In future, be more inclined to make a disciplined fold in situations like this. Wait until you have QQ+ before putting your whole stack at risk pre-flop. Also take notes on villains. It will be very useful to know that this guy makes very large open raises with monster hands, so that next time he makes this play, you can safely fold anything worse than KK.

A moderator will sort out your next bonus. Better luck with the next stage of this promo!

Cheers,
Arty

Hi,
The VPPs that where accrued prior to the release of your 2nd bonus doesn't qualify. 10VPPs earned with the 2nd bonus will count, have you done this?









Kind regards,
CannonLee
