Hello SalviBruno,

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 SalviBruno!

Winning poker is playing tight/aggressive poker. Playing passive will never win out in the long run.

In the first hand with 6Ts, this hand needs to be mucked preflop. Just because I have an ace or suited cards does not mean that the hand is playable. When out of position, I only want to be playing premium hands due to the positional disadvantage that I have. Anything marginal needs to be mucked preflop.

In the second one, 59s is another trash hand, but being in the BB, I'll gladly check and see a free flop.
I flop 2nd pair and the first opp makes a pot sized bet. With 3 opps in the pot, this bet is large enough to make anyone with a draw have a negative play and with only second pair, since I'm priced out to draw, I need to muck. A standard bet for 3 opps is 3/4 pot and unless I'm sure that I'm ahead, I can't call a bet equal to or larger than this.

When playing poker, I want to put my chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind. Also, I want to be aggressive in hands when I'm ahead and make standard bets. Players that bet larger or smaller are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent, which is something that I do not want to do.

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!

Hi SalviBruno!

Here you are facing an early position raiser. Much of his opening range (without a read) will be A10s+. Most of these hands are beating your AJs. Also, you are in position on the btn. I would normally just call preflop and reevaluate postflop. Your hand plays well post flop since you will often have a straight or flush draw or top pair hand. 3-betting runs the risk of getting all the hands you are beating to fold and only the hands beating you to continue.

On the flop you have two overcards and a flush draw. We want to bet this aggressively as you did. Good job The villain may fold winning you the pot. And, you have plenty of outs to improve your hand to a monster on the later streets. The turn gives you an open ended straight draw as well. Even though you don't have a made hand yet, you have 9 flush outs, 6 straight outs, 3 Js and and As which may also be good. This is a good spot for us. I would lead again on the turn as a semi bluff and be prepaired to call an all in raise with your short stack.

I usually bet now before the third flush card comes. Many players will fold top pair, two pair or even a set on the river if they believe you just made a flush. It is usually better to bet now while they still have hopes of winning the hand. It worked out fine here. You got all the chips in the middle on the river and your hand held up. Nice

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi again SalviBruno!

Calling preflop with 1010 is ok here. However you are getting a bit short stacked to be set mining. Either way, with small, medium pairs we want to flop a set or fold on the flop normally. With 1010 you will often have top pair that may be good. On this flop though, there is a J which gives you second pair at best. Also, there are plenty of Qs, Ks and As that may come on the turn and river. It is not worth continuing on this board. Just fold to the flop c-bet.

If you continue, you will not know if you have the best hand. Therefore you will not be able to bet with confidence. Furthermore, as I mentioned above, you are not deep stacked. If you were deep stacked like the villain, then we could perhaps continue with the hand because if we get a 10 on a later street we have the potential to win a big pot.

As played, you definitely want to fold to the river bet. We just won't win enough to make calling profitable with so many overcards on the board.

Remember, with small/medium pairs, be prepared to fold on the flop when you miss your set. You will only flop a set about 1 in 8 tries on average.

GL and have fun at the tables!
