Hello xXmark10Xx,

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 xXmark10Xx!

The first tip that I would have for you is something I see before the hand starts. When playing a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over to immediately start will be a huge drain to my bankroll.

With KJo from UTG, I'd like to fold this as it's not a strong enough hand to be playing from this position, but since the blind was posted, I will check and hope to see a free flop. It's definitely not a strong enough hand to raise with. When playing from out of position, especially from UTG, I only want to be playing premium hands (AA, KK, QQ, AK).

When the opponents start making abnormally large raises (a standard re-raise is to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise), I need to muck a very marginal hand like KJ. I only want to be calling large raises with premium made hands (QQ, KK, AA).

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!

1. To put a lot of pressure on opponents
2. To bluff people of decent hands
3. To gain value from very strong hands

Hi Mark,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

I think we have an easy fold preflop. There is no point to limp into the pot with J3o because it is a weak hand and will flop poorly and you can see why. You flopped top pair but you had kicker trouble and calling the turn with a 3 high flush when we might not be good often when we do hit a diamond anyway.

I suggest you revise the Cash Game course and focus on starting hand ranges and position.

GL at the tables!

Hi xXmark10Xx

That's good to hear, but are you sure you are counting from the time you received your last bonus? When we check here it shows only around 7 VPPs. So just carry on playing until you hit the mark and we'll release your bonus!

Hi xXmark10Xx,

That's great news!

Now to earn your fourth and final bonus, keep applying the principles you have learned at the same tables as before until you have earned a further 10 VPPs, counting from when you receive this latest bonus.

If you lose your bankroll, please post the losing hand(s) for analysis. As ever, if you have any questions we are here for you.
