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!

I instantly reallised that calling pre flop was a mistake, but should I have re-raised to offer some protection or folded out of concern for player 2s hand?
thanks,
D

p.s. have completed the poker basics course.

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 dewrder!

With AQ from the SB, I get 4 limpers, then a smaller than normal raise to 120 (a standard raise would be to 3BB+1BB for each limper). I'm going to 3-bet here and the key is the sizing of the bet. My standard 3-bet size is to between 3X the previous bet (360) and a pot-sized raise (350). I'll choose the high end and raise to 360.

I totally miss the flop and with 4 opps, one of them probably has me beat, so I'm going to check and hope to see a free turn card. If any of the opps bets, I'm going to muck.

This hand is a great example of why position is so important in poker. Even though I had a hand with great potential preflop, being out of position doesn't let us have the opps act first to tell us whether they hit the flop or not... so we don't know whether to bet or fold.

Good fold to the flop bet.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Yes I think that will be helpfull, will try betting more agressively when I have a hand worth playing to see if that shakes of the limpets. And I'll try to remember position at all times!
thanks,
D

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!
