Hello MeeMig,

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 MeeMig,

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. We'll also check if your quiz pass shows here, if not I'll give you a link to the correct quiz.

Cheers!

Hi MeeMig!

With A3 from the hijack, I get 2 limps in front of me. With an ace/rag hand like this, I need to fold this preflop. If I had AJ+ then I would make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper or if it was folded to me, I would make a standard open... but with multiple opps in the pot, I do not want to be playing an ace with a bad kicker. Just because I have an ace or suited cards does not mean that the hand is playable.

If I did see the flop (which I would not), when I see that I hit top pair and it's folded to me, I need to make a standard value bet. Bets post-flop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 opps in the pot, I need to make a pot-sized bet, so I will bet 60. I do not want to bet less than this or I could be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me.
When an opp then shoves over me, I absolutely need to muck as there are too many card combinations that have me beat there (two pair, set, A with better kicker, draw, etc). I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I know I'm ahead, not when I can very, very easily be behind.

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!
