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

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 steps completed.

Best of Luck!

Hi,
Hand Analysis

We are sitting really deep with 200bb and to make things that much sweeter with the 2nd best starting hand!

To make the pot bigger, we need to take into account the current pot size (example 200 chips) and the villains stack depth (example 200bb each) we'd first start with raising 3x the villains raise size (80 chips) + the current pot size. (240 + 200 is an ideal amount, we could even consider making it 380 to 420).


Also post flop, I'd go with a 1/2 to 2/3 pot continuation bet sizing and quite possibly shut down on later (turn and river) streets as there could plausibly be several combos of AX in either of the two villains range.


Hope this helps.



Good luck and good decisions,
CannonLee

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!

Hi,

Hand Analysis

This hand is a fold from early position. Also, when I decide to open the action from any position my raise size is consistent and the standard amount of 3x the big blind. There are several other players left behind us to act, meaning there are still live cards and there is a good chance that our hand is out kicked by a better range of Jx or dominated with JJ+ and over cards to our hand.

Post flop we hit two pairs on a three straight flop, given the amount we opened 5x (10c) we can expect some strong hands to be calling our raise pre-flop, AK AQ AJ KQ JJ TT 99. Now we have two blockers to potentials sets (three of a kind) that being for jacks and nines. But our course of action should entirely be dependent on the reads we have gathered while playing at the table with this villain, have they been fit or fold (tight) or loose (aggressive) also what ranges have they been taking to showdown? This villain could easily have a range of Jx that we have beat at the moment AJ KJs QJs as well some over pairs QQ KK AA. It's highly unlikely they have 87 given the pre-flop action, so what other range of hands have us beat at the moment?


The turn is really tough to get away from, but KQ (4 combos) JJ (1 combo) 99 (2 combo) TT (2 combo) 9 hands total have us beat at the moment. We still have enough behind to fold on this turn, but we would need really specific reads about this villain to be making this big lay down.

The main question here would be, when you raised all in on the turn what range where you trying to get value from and what are they trying to get value from based on their aggressive check raise flop...lead bet turn line?





Hope this helps.


Good luck and good decisons,
CannonLee
