Hello Shadowswar,

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

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 Shadowswar!

With JJ from UTG, I'm going to make a standard opening raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, I will raise to 150. I want to keep all of my bets standard, so that the opps are continually guessing as to the strength of my hand, as I will make the same raise with AA, 77, 33, AK, JTs or any other cards that I want to play. Players that bet more or less based on the strength of their hands are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent, which is something I don't want to do. I also do not want to raise less, as doing this can give opps with marginal hands the correct odds to try to outdraw me, which is another thing that I want to avoid if at all possible.

The flop brings an underpair and when it's checked to me, I will make a standard value bet. Post-flop bets need to be based on the pot size, number of opps and board texture. With 4 opps in the board, I need to make a pot-sized bet, so I will bet 500. I don't want to bet less than this, as it can give an opp trying to outdraw me the correct odds to do so.

The turn is a blank and when the opp checks to me, I will make one more value bet. With only one opp in the hand, my standard size is 1/2 pot, so I will bet 450. Once again, I don't want to bet less, as I don't want to possibly give the opp the correct odds to try to outdraw me.

If the opp had called this bet and checked again on the river, unless the river is a J, I would check and go to showdown, as only a player with a 10 should have called all of my bets.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)
