Hi Jarnefeldt,

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!

Had A7, someone shoves all in. I figure the play money tables are so loose that A7 probably crushes his range. The second caller however presented a big risk, as the odds of someone else having A8+ and calling with the same logic as me seem highish, was this the right play?

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.

Hi Jarnefeldt!

With A7o on the button, I get 3 limps, an abnormally large raise (to 27BB when a standard raise is to 6BB), then an abnormally large 3-bet to 318 (a standard 3-bet sizing would be to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise). A7 is a marginal-at-best hand and with these bet sizes should be way behind the opp's ranges. Due to this, I need to muck here preflop, as I do not have anywhere near a strong enough hand to call these bets. If the players were playing even a bit on the tighter side, I'd even muck AK here.

Calling abnormally large raises with marginal to bad hands will cost me a large number of chips over time. Just because I have suited cards or an A doesn't mean that they should always be played.

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!
