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.

Hi,

Hand Analysis


Usually a limping range is perceived as a weak range of holdings, a good rule of thumb to use when playing is if your hand is playable and you decide to enter the pot, do so with a standard raise of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper. We have a lot of room to maneuver sitting on roughly a 150bb stack depth and this hand does have some merit to be playing as it can flop decent equity to a straight draw or a made hand.


Post flop, given our pot odds we are slightly almost breaking even on a call to try and peel for a gut shot, given the board texture and the minimal equity we have in the pot there is no need to take any aggressive action on the flop and turn. On the river we could credibly represent the straight given our course of action, limp pre-flop>call flop>call turn.the only way we can win this pot is to bet as we have VERY thin showdown value for high card, we could have made a smaller bet sizing of just over pot size although double pot does have merit as it appears we are trying to represent the flush or straight and get a cry call from two pair combos or slow played top pair holdings. Nice pot!



Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

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!

you may want to make a big bet in order to: gain value from a very strong hand, bluff people off decent hands, or to protect against strong draws.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

We are sitting a little bit over 40bb deep, we would need really specific reads to be laying this hand down pre-flop on this depth of money. Did you have any reads about the players tendencies? I agree with you that this is a pretty standard situation and 4bet folding half of our stack is certainly an option but one that is not the most optimal, but I have a few things to add.


Preflop, I would would have opened the action for the standard amount of 3x the big blind from early position, this hand is considered the top of our range. As for 4bet sizing, 30c to 36c is an optimal amount, your 4bet sizing is near perfect as it allows the villain some room to maneuver in terms of re-raising and having some fold equity. As played we have to get it in, just an unfortunate spot to run in to pocket queens. Do not be discouraged though, this is normal in poker.


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee
