Hello iamentienza,

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!

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 iamentienza!

With JJ from UTG+1, I get an abnormally small min-raise in front of me (a standard raise is to 3BB+1BB for each limper and with the double post, that counts as 2 limps). I'm going to make a standard 3-bet, which is to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise. Since 3X is higher, I'll raise to 120.

I then get a call, a min 4-bet and a shove. This presents a really bad situation, as JJ plays much better if up against only one hand. Whether I call or fold here will be based on my read of the 2 opps yet to act. If they are likely to call, then I'm mucking JJ hare as I do not want to be in a multi-way pot. If I think the other two will fold, then since the player that shoved initially min-raised, I'll call. If I had no reads at all, with this being a play money table, where players are more likely to call with less, I'll muck.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

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!

also with this hand same raiser, i hope you can give me suggestions with how i play, even though i won the pot i still need some advices to the pro's like yours thanks !

Reasons for big bets:

1. To gain value from hands
2. Put pressure on opponents
3. Make opponent pay for draws (similar to gaining value)
4. or to bluff
