Hello shane55559,

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

3) Pass the Poker Basic course.

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 steps completed.

Best of Luck!

Hi shane55559,

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!

There are several important points in this hand. Firstly, never pay the big blind out of turn! Click the "Wait for Big Blind" button and use the time to start building notes on your opponents. Paying out of turn will drain your bankroll in the long run.

Now, you are dealt 34o. This hand is extremely weak. Ask yourself, what starting hands are you beating? There aren't many. You want to fold this pretty much 100% of the time from any position. Calling big raises with weak hands is not a good choice. Try to be patient. Wait for good starting hands and good situations. This will allow you to play more confidently post flop.

As played, you flop middle pair. What were you hoping to achieve by raising? Is your hand strong enough to be raising for value? Or are you bluffing hoping to get people to fold? Either way, mini-raising in this spot will not achieve your goal. It basically inflates the pot without improving your chances of winning.

On the turn you catch your miracle card. Now your goal should be to maximize your profit. You lead out with 150 into a pot of 1160. Notice also that flush and straight draws are possible. Your small betsize gives everyone good odds to continue with the hand. I recommend moving all in instead. You have enough for about a 50% pot bet. Don't get tricky. Bet for value and to protect your hand.

I suggest you take a look at some of the videos regarding bet sizing and starting hands this week

GL and have fun 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!
