Hello fireash666,

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 fireash666!

With 56o in the BB, I get 3 limps, a min-raise and 2 calls of the raise. My hand is nowhere near strong enough to re-raise (to try and lower the number of opps in the hand since I'm out of position), so I need to muck this preflop.

When playing from the blinds, when an opp raises, I only want to raise or fold the overwhelming majority of the time (unless I have a pair and am setmining). To raise, I need to have a premium hand and 56 is much, much worse than even an average hand. Players that try to play too many hands from the blinds (becuase it's cheaper as they've already got chips in the pot) are leaking off a great number of chips to their opponents. I work hard for my chips and I want to keep them, not just freely hand them to my opponents.

If I was in the hand (which I would not be), when I hit bottom pair, I need to check/fold. If I did bet, I would need to make a standard value bet, which for 4 or more opponents is a pot-sized bet... I cannot bet less or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. Bets post-flop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture (flop/turn bets will never be less than 1/2 the size of the pot).

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

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

I have one confusion. Is the table whose buy-in is $.50 is 1/2 cent table ? Because its stakes are $0.05/$0.10 .

Thanks in Advance.

Hi fireash666

No, you need to sit at the $0.01/0.02 full-ring (9-player) NLHE tables, that means the small blind is 1 cent and the big blind is 2 cents. Best of luck!

Hi fireash666! I'll take a look at the hand in post 12.

You made a good fold here. KQs is a very nice hand, but it's not one you want to get all your chips in with pre-flop.
In this particular hand, there's a limp UTG and you decided to just complete the SB. I'd generally recommend raising to 4bb here, because being in the SB means you'll be out of position post-flop. To make up for that disadvantage, it's good to seize the initiative, especially as you probably have the best hand, because a pre-flop limp usually means the player has a weak speculative hand like a small pair or suited conector.
As played, you complete, and the BB tries an isolation raise. If the action came back to you, I'd even fold to the 12c raise, but your decision is even easier. When the UTG limper shoves all in, his hand is face up. He's trying the old limp-reraise with AA or KK. Don't fall for this trick. Notice that the BB who made it 12c probably had a strong hand, but he's good enough to realise he's crushed by AA/KK.
By the way, the limp-reraise trick is not recommended. By making it, this villain picked up 14c, but if he'd opened for a standard raise, he probably would have got 2 callers, and could have won your whole stack if you made top pair.

Good fold. Let's hope you can see a flop next time!

Cheers,
Arty

3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?


1. To gain value from very strong hands.
2. To put a lot of pressure on opponents.
3. To protect against strong draws.

Hi,

Not FPPS, it's VPPs you need to earn:

1) Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus. Let us know if you hit that target
