Hello ImBluffing81,

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 ImBluffing81,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

Definitely betting both flop and turn. However, I think we should size it bigger; we have top & bottom on a very wet board, there is a straight and flush potential and our hand is vulnerable. I want to bet big here 2/3 to 3/4 pot to charge draws a higher price and build the pot.

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!

3 Reasons why someone would bet big are to:

Protect against strong draws
Bluff people off decent hands
To put a lot of pressure on opponents

Hi ImBluffing81! I'll analyse the hand in post #8.

I love the way you played this. Raising pre-flop is standard. When you flopped top set, betting out is great. Many (bad) players would choose to slowplay here, but I like to go for as much value as possible, and you don't do that by checking. It's a dream come true when villain check-raises all in on the flop. You can snap-call and he's drawing dead. All in drawing dead is always fun. Nice hand!

Hope this helps!
To get more tuition on cash game basics, I recommend going to live training sessions for the Wednesday and Saturday Games if you can. You'll even be able to play alongside other PSO members in the Homegame club and get instant feedback on the way you play your hands. Good luck!

Cheers,
Arty

Fantastic!

Your second Bankroll Builder bonus is on it's way to you, great job so far.

Watch this video that will help you on the cash game tables



There are three ways in which you can earn your next bonus.

Is there a way to get the hand history from when I lost the money? It isn't in the last week or last 100 hands?

Hi ImBluffing81

Hmm that's odd, it should be in both of those selections of hand histories. All I can suggest is that you make another request and have another look for the hands in question. If still no luck then let me know and I'll make further enquiries and see what we can do for you.

Hi ImBluffing81

I'm sorry but we don't have a tool to request your hand history, only you can do it via the poker software menu. If you can't find your hands I'm afraid you can't progress with the Bankroll Builder promotion.
