Hello holeinone60,

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!

Hi holeinone60,

Thanks for posting the hand, we'll have the hand analysis done shortly. I don't see your Poker Basic quiz pass in our system here, so please let me know when you have passed that. Then I can give you your first bonus and take you to the next step

Hi holeinone60!

With AA (or any other hand that I'm going to raise with), I will make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With no limpers, I will raise to 3BB or 30 chips. By keeping all of my raises standard, I continually keep the opps guessing as to the cards I'm playing. Opps that bet more or less based on their hand are basically turning their cards face-up, something I do not want to do.

After two calls, I get an abnormally large raise to 120. I am going to re-raise here and the key is the sizing of this bet. My standard size is to between 3X the previous bet (360) and a pot-sized raise (305) and I will opt for the top end of this range and raise to 360... HOWEVER, this is well over 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that I'm pot-committed. Due to this, instead of raising to 360, I will shove.

The keys here are standard bets to help conceal the strength of my hand.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hello,
I was just wondering what happened to this particular hand.
Please review this hand# 101367017910 (tournament # 757095637-80 / 15/30 Pot Limit Omaha
I still don't understand how I lost on this hand.
As far as I'm concern, I'm holding a full house, 999 JJ. My opponent was holding a flushes.
Please clarify...
Regards,
Joel Ortiz

Hi Joel

We're happy to look at any hand you post here, provided it is relevant to the Bankroll Builder promotion. So that means, at your stage in the promotion, hands that you played in 9-player play money ring games only. And you would also need to paste the Hand Replayer presentation of the hand rather than just the hand number.

However you are most welcome to post this hand in the Omaha Hand Analysis section of the Forum. But before you do, make sure that you took account of the fact that in Omaha only two of your four hole cards count towards your hand. That fundamental rule is commonly overlooked by beginners trying Omaha, but it is quickly learned as the losses mount up
