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!

Hi Overloadd,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

After, Villain 1 makes such a big raise we can go all in. As played, I don't think there is anything wrong with calling the flop. Just unlucky there.

We can only analyse a hand that you post here in this thread using the hand replayer only

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!

1>


This was a tough spot I had about 15 outs + i knew he had something big like AX+ and I was getting a good value for it if i called.. So I decided to make the call.

2> The 3. reasons why to make a big bet :-
i. To make the pot big / gain value
ii.To bluff people to make them fold.. a Semi-Bluff is a nice spot mainly for a big bet cause they wont see it coming when I(Better) do hit cause they will be thinking I(Better) might be protecting
iii.To put alot of Pressure on people

3> I have read and passed the Cash Game Quiz

Hi Overloadd,

I would not be calling from the SB with 87s vs the BTN. Though the hand looks nice and has postflop potential, playing medium-low suited connectors out of position and without initiative is not a profitable call. The reason why is because we will miss the flop 70% of the time and when we do hit TP we are vulnerable. These hands play better when we have initiative or atleast have position because we will have to turn our hand into a bluff more often than you think to make suited connectors profitable.

Here I would either fold or 3bet raise the BTN open to get them to fold their weaker range that has equity against us and to have initiative in the hand if they do call. In this case the button makes a huge raise and we have less than 100bbs so I would elect to fold because 3betting will leave us with few chips behind to be able to maneuver post flop had they called. So fold imo.

As played, we flopped a very strong draw; the straight flush draw. I would check/raise all in here.
