Hello,

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 Animatheas,

I think you have played your hand well. A slightly smaller bet on the river might get lighter calls from Tx hands. But besides that, I like every part of the hand the way you played it

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!

Wow.

3 Reasons:

1. Gain value.
2. Put pressure on opponents.
3. To isolate speculative hands. (Preflop)

Hi Animatheas!

Preflop, 3betting with KK is fine; however, your bet was a bit large. A standard 3b is 3x the original raise. So, make it 45c here rather than 56c. Raising too large will often get more hands to fold. With a hand as strong as KK, we want to get called. Also, if you tend to raise your strong hands big and your weaker hands small, you will be easy for opponents to read. Whereas, if you always bet the same amount, you conceal the strength of your hand. As played, getting all in is fine. You got it in good and lost. Don't stress the result here.

IMPORTANT!: Two more very important points. Firstly, you are only supposed to play 2NL Full Ring for this promotion. Playing other formats or stakes may have made you ineligible for the remaining buyins. Full ring is easier to learn on than 6-Max. And you do not have the proper bankroll for playing 5NL. Playing above your bankroll and/or skill level will drain your bankroll very fast. I strongly advise you to stick with 2NL Full Ring for you own sake!

GL and have fun at the tables!

Your second Bankroll Builder bonus is on it's way to you, great job so far.

Watch this video that will help you on the cash game tables



There are three ways in which you can earn your next bonus.

1) Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus. Let us know if you hit that target
2) If you lose your 2nd bonus at the tables please post the hands where you lost the money with here in this thread. As soon as you post the losing hands we will advise on the next step.
3) If you make a first deposit at PokerStars you will automatically be awarded your remaining bonuses from the Bankroll Builder promotion.

Best of luck to you at the tables and we are here to help you should you have any questions.

Why didn't you post the losing hands? It's a great way to learn by having them reviewed

'Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus'+

Remember it's 10 VPPs earned AFTER you got your last buy-in, not 10 VPPs total (any VPPS earned before you got your last buy-in do not count)

If you have earned 10 VPPs AFTER you got your 2nd bonus then your 3rd bonus should be credited to you automatically within 24 hours.

Let me know when you get it and I'll advise on the next step.
