Hello aetropos,

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!

Was confused throughout the hole hand with 10s on the button. Everyone calling me, was thinking pockets, sets, kings or flushes everywhere. Since no diamond came, made river bet of almost half the pot, still thought I was behind and felt like a bluff.

Any pointers on this or both hands would be appreciated.



Got flop and turn cheap with suited 6 2 and hit a flush. Was out of position and didn't know how to act, thought I had to bet because another diamond would be trouble but ended checking hoping someone else would do it. After the check/raise, river made no difference, thought I had the nut and made value bet of half pot.




Already passed the basic test.

Hi aetropos,

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 aetropos

Hand#1: I think calling or raising with TT are both fine but I don't see a reason to be raising the donk bet on K high against so many opponents; We will fold out hands that we beat and get called by better. So I would just call the flop bet and reevaluate on the turn. The way the hand played out, I'm checking it down to showdown for the same reason as above.

Hand#2: I would personally fold preflop even though we have a very good price to call, but our hand is so weak and so hard to improve post flop; Also when we do make a flush we will be in a hard position because of the strength of our hard we will often be beat when we get action.

GL 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!
