Hello,

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!

I would like some advice on this hand. Ace Queen Spades All in before flop, i thought it was a good idea at the time, straight draw, flush draw, high card. Can I get some opinions of what others would 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 MrSkippy23!

With AQs, I get two limps in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB per limper. With 2 limpers, I will raise to 50 chips. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, as this helps to conceal my cards and keep the opps guessing as to what I'm holding, as I will make the same raise with AA, 77, 33, AK, JTs or any other cards that I'm going to play. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent.. something that I want to avoid doing.

I then get a call, a raise and 2 calls of the raise. I can't call here, as I'd have to put over 1/3 of my remaining chips into the pot, which means that I'd be pot-committed and cannot ever fold. This leaves me with either shoving or folding. If I was up against only one opp, I'd be more likely to shove against a loose opponent or fold to a tighter opponent. With at least 3 others in the pot, maybe 4, I need to muck my AQs here. If I had a made hand, then I'd shove (JJ+) but not a marginal, unmade hand.

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!
