Hi h.badger1986,

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 Basics 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 h.badger1986!

With AKo from the cutoff, I get two limps, then an abnormally large shove (a standard raise is to 3BB+1BB for each limper) and a call of the shove. While AK does have high potential, it's not a made hand and due to this along with it playing much better in a heads-up pot, I need to muck AK here preflop.
If I had AA, KK or maybe QQ, then I'd shove, but not with anything less and I would not ever call. The reason for not calling is that calling pot-commits me and when I'm pot-committed, I cannot ever fold. If I can't fold, then I need to shove if I'm going to play the hand.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Excellent!

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 completed and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!

so I see queens . and value. should I have folded or just shove and pray. I thought the guy who raised had aces but wasn't sure. as what id seen from him is that he just lost a huge pot and might be tilting with a low pp. the third 20 cent caller just wanted a triple up. turns out he had kings. and trips on the river seal my all in dreams.

Hi badger1986,

Nothing to be worried about here, these things happen; it's basically a cooler. I am happy getting all in here with QQ. It's at the top of our range. Against a range of AA, KK, QQ, JJ, and AK we are only 47% underdog. Also Villain could definitely be shoving lighter there which makes me happy to call, I would never think of folding in this spot
