Hi Destro17,

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!

Hey!!

I have watched both videos and have passed the poker basic quiz

Here is 1 of the hands i played won with a flush



was it foolish of me to call that? with very low cards? and why do people feel to over bid pre flop like that?? is it to minimize lower cards becomeing stronger? and did i play that hand correctly

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.

Hi Destro17!

With T2s from UTG+1 and a limp from UTG in front of me, this is nowhere near a strong enough hand to be playing from this position, so I need to immediately muck it. Just because I have an A or suited cards does not mean that the hand is good enough to play, especially when out of position. When I'm out of position, I only want to be playing premium hands. When there is a raise, I absolutely must muck this really bad hand to the raise preflop.

The reason for the larger bet on the flop (standard in this situation is a pot-sized bet and the bet really shouldn't be larger than this for this sitaution) is to give anyone drawing the wrong odds to draw. Anyone calling this type of bet that needs to draw to win, is making a play where they expect to LOSE chips on average.. something that I do not want to do. Bets post-flop need to be based on the number of opps in the hand, the size of the pot and the board texture. ex: with 1 opp, a bet of 1/2 pot will give the opp the wrong odds to draw to a straight or flush. with 2 opps, it's 2/3 pot, etc. Anyone that calls these bets to draw expects to LOSE chips on average each time, so if I've got the best hand currently, I would expect to GAIN chips on average from them if they call.

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!
