Hi William G6,

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!

I have watched the videos and passed the quiz but am having a issue with the hand replayer. It says the hand replayer is not available in play money tables when i try to access it. Am i doing something wrong or did the site changed since the video was recorded.

I also noticed in the video you said there should be a "play money" bar next to the "Fixed Limit" "No Limit" & "Pot Limit". The "play money" bar is not there. It seems like there is no option to play a cash game.

Am I doing something wrong?

Alright Done, Done & Done (All 3 steps complete). Not sure it was the smartest call but it worked out in the end. What would you have done.

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 William G6!

With K8o from UTG, I need to immediately muck this. When playing out of position, I need to play only premium hands due to the positional disadvantage that I have. The only hands with a K that I would make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each lipmer (150 chips here) is AK or KK. I need to muck all the others as they are not strong enough hands to be playing. One thing that I try to never do is to open-limp. This shows weakness and is very exploitable play, as a weak hand cannot call a raise and win chips on average.

When the opp shoves this many chips, I need to have a premium made hand to call. I'd call with AA, KK and maybe QQ (depending on the opp, I could easily muck QQ). No other hand is strong enough to call here.

The key here is to muck bad hands preflop, espeicially when out of position.

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!
