Hi HenriqueMed0,

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
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!

Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.
He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Cheers.

Thanks, I know it was a speculative hand though . I was pretty sure i had the best hand with top pair and people call to everything in play money so i went for a value bet.

Hi HenriqueMed0!

With K2s from the BB, I get 4 limps, then a min-raise and a call of the min-raise. K2s is not a strong enough hand to be playing from out of position. Many newer players think that because they are in the blind and have chips into the pot, it's good to get into a pot cheaply. Don't fall for this, as playing marginal and worse than marginal hands from OOP will be a huge chip leak over time, as being out of position is a HUGE disadvantage.
It's nowhere near a strong enough hand to raise with. If I did have a strong hand to raise with, my raise sizing would need to be basically a pot-size raise here, which is a bet of 230 chips... and I've got nowhere near a strong enough hand to do this. I do not want to bet less than this if I raise, as I will be giving the opps the correct odds to stay in the hand and outdraw me. I want to be betting when I expect to gain chips, not when I expect to lose them.
I want to keep all of my bets/raises standard, so that the opps are continually guessing as to the strength of my hand.

I flop top pair, but have no kicker and here is why I don't want to be playing bad hands from out of position... I have absolutely no clue now as to whether I'm way ahead or crushed! When the opp makes an abnormally small bet (bets post flop need to be based on the pot size and number of players), due to there being so many in the hand, I'd need to make a pot sized raise to 470 if I bet... which I would not. I'm checking here and seeing what happens, as I am very easily dominated here.
When an opp raises, unless the player is totally clueless, I'm beat here, so I need to muck. Calling a raise here is going to be a bigtime losing play over time.

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!
