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!

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.

Hi Rosemel16!

With AK (or any other hand that I want to raise with), I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With one limper, I will raise to 4BB or 8 chips. By keeping all of my bets and raises standard, I help to conceal the strength of my cards. 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.

I then get a shove and a call. While AK is a hand with potential, it's not a made hand as it's only ace high. With multiple opponents, unless both of the opps are maniacs (and even then, it's an iffy play to call), I need to fold and look for a better spot to get my chips into.

If I had a made hand, AA, KK, QQ or possibly even JJ, then I could call... but with anything less, I need to fold here in a multi-way pot.

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!

Hi Rosemel,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

That's an ugly turn card! It not only fills a straight but could also counterfeit our two pair; There are 6 combos of AJ and 16 combos of T9; so we now lose to 18 combos - given our opponents limped preflop it is unlikely they hold AJ though. But there are more combos that we beat in their range that I think it is okay to bet the rest OTT and get called by worse: J8, Jx with spades, FDs, Pair+Gutshots, etc.

Unlucky there! Better luck next time
