Hello MCFISHY6,

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 MCFISHY6! I'll take a look at the hand in post #4.

With QQ, you have a monster hand that is strong enough to raise with in most circumstances. Here there's a raise UTG, so I'd be a little worried villain has you beat, because his range in that position should be very strong, but I like re-raising. Since there was a caller of the raise, I'd go with four times the raise and make it 48, but 55 is fine too. Your re-raise is surprisingly cold-called by two players, so they are likely to have decent pocket pairs and big aces. The UTG player decides to 5-bet, putting most of his stack on the line. Since calling this bet would mean more than a third of your own stack is in the middle, going all in is the best play. You go all in and get two calls. Somewhat shockingly, they flip over K7s and Q9, so you're in great shape, as you only need to fade kings. The board runs out safely and you more than triple up. Nice hand. Just be aware that when you get on the real money tables, villains will usually only be stacking off pre-flop with hands in the range QQ+/AK, so you'll often be flipping or crushed when you have QQ.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty

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 again MCFISHY6! I'll take a look at the hand in post #8.

You have 99 on the button, faced with 3 limpers. I think iso-raising is probably the best idea, as you're likely to have the best hand, but you need to thin the field, because 99 plays best heads up. With a weaker pocket pair, I'd normally just call and go set-mining for the cheapest price possible, but 99 is strong enough to raise. You get called by the BB and the HJ, which isn't ideal as the flop is likely to contain at least one overcard, and a continuation bet has less chance of getting through 2 players than just the one. Luckily, however, you get a great flop, as you have an overpair on 732. When both villains check, I think betting about 3/4 pot is good. Often both villains will fold, but there's value to be gained from flush draws and worse pairs. When the BB check-raises all in though, it's a tough spot. Some notes on the villain here would be useful. You have an overpair, but villains often won't risk their whole stack with worse than TPTK. I'd be concerned that the villain called pre with a small pair and flopped a set, so he's going for maximum value. There are some worse hands in his range too, though, as he might figure you are c-betting with a hand like AK, which would mean 88, 66, 55 were winning, but are vulnerable to overcards coming on the turn and river. Some villains would shove as a semi-bluff with a combo straight/flush draw with something like or . Since I'm not too confident you're way ahead here, I'd often fold, but you made the call and got it in good against an overplayed top pair, average kicker.
Nice call, but be careful in future. One pair (even an overpair) is often not strong enough to risk your whole stack with, as villains will show up with two pairs, sets and very strong draws.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty
