Hello WildCeltics,

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!

Would you say most of the time doing this with ace high is good?

Hi WildCeltics,

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 WildCeltics!

The first thing that I see here is even before the hand starts. Whenever sitting at a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over will be a HUGE drain to a player's bankroll.

With A9s from UTG+1, with limps, then a raise, this is one that I need to fold, as it's nowhere near strong enough to call a raise with from this position. If I was on the button or cutoff, then I could call the raise and see the flop sometimes, but not from early position. From this position, I'd re-raise with AK and maybe call a raise with AQs, but even the AQs is marginal.

When there is a large raise, I'm ONLY calling it with a made hand (QQ, KK, AA). Other hands are way too weak to be calling with.

The key here is to muck marginal hands preflop, as patience in poker is an absolute virtue.

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!

A reason a player would make a big bet would be:
1) to protect hand against a drawing hand
2)to attempt to bluff opponent off hand
3) to put pressure on opponents

Hi WildCeltics,

Yes, you are right. We should be folding to the re-raise. But given we called and we flopped an OESD, we have the right odds to call.
