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!

Sorry for the way my previous post turned out. I tried doing it the way it showed on the video but I couldn't find some icons etc. I also don't use a mouse which makes it hard to right/left click I have to use 'File' up top to save. Thanks.

If you zoom out on your page ('ctrl' and the '-') you will see the icons

You MUST post the hand using the hand relayer before we can continue with the promotion.

Hi.
I did what you said and zoomed out but there was nothing else on my screen. I'm using a mac. Does that make a difference?
Thanks.

Yes, I don't think the hand replayer works well with Mac. Have you also a desktop?

Please post the hand history ID number here for the hand you need analysed.

Cheers,

When I try to request that hand number from PokerStars # 102726396844 it's saying 'hand not found'?

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.

3 reasons for a big bet:
- To put your opponent under pressure.
- To bluff off decent hands, to scare them off.
- To gain value for the pot from strong (monster) hands.

I played several hands on 1c/2c table Nash II. One of these hands was #102931615154. I know I should be using the rep layer but as I am using a mac it doesn't work for me (I had this problem earlier.

I will let you know when I have done the cash game quiz.

Thanks.

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 Theos,
I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

Generally, I do not favor open limping into pots. I think we should have folded preflop from EP with QTo because our hand strength is very marginal and we have 7 players remaining to act behind us.
As played, I think we can take a check call line on the flop instead of a small bet because we don't achieve much when we bet to that size. All hands that connect with the flop will continue and we will be left guessing throught the remainder of the hand. It so important to play poker with initiative and in position; that's where most of the money is made. I would advise you to take the cash game course on PSO again and focus on playing in position and work on your betsizing.

GL at the tables!
