Hi PoKeR_KiN322,

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 PoKeR_KiN322!

The quiz that you need to pass is the 15 question quiz at the end of the basics section. We do NOT show that you have passed this and it's a requirement to pass it to move onto the next step. Please pass it and let us know when you do so, or if you have, please screenshot it and post it here.

We cannot move you to the next step without this.

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!

Players may want to make a big bet because :
-They want to put pressure on opponents
-To bluff people off decent hands
-To protect against strong draws

And because my laptop is weak and it doesn't want to upload the hand .. i uploaded it to BOOM! replayer .. i hope is not a problem

here is the hand : http://www.boomplayer.com/ro/poker-h...672_9030D96956

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 PoKeR_KiN322,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

Generally, I think limping into pots is not a profitable play. We should be raising or folding instead of limping the big blind. Here because we are 5 handed, I think we can look to open raise with A5o to steal the blinds; It would have been better if we had a suited Ace instead. When we are raised preflop, I think we should be folding because our hand is weak.

When our opponent goes all in on the flop, I think they will have an overpair most of the time. Here we are looking to improve by hitting an Ace (3 outs) or making a straight with a 4 (4 outs) so we have 7 outs to improve or 28%. When villain goes all in they lay us 1.5:1 odds on our call which means we need 40% equity to make the call which we don't have which means we should be folding. You got lucky there
