Hello Yagamau5,

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!

Step 2.



I was value betting as I had a a straight draw. On the river I hit my straight and was certain I'd won.

But gzbaghdaddy had a flush.

Could this be considered a bad beat?

Hi Yagamau5,

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 Yagamau5!

Preflop I strongly suggest folding this hand. Your only good flop will be a fush draw. If we could see the flop cheap it would be ok, but the pf raise makes calling unprofitable.

As played, on the flop you have a straight draw,but notice that you are drawing to the low end of the straight. You might have the best hand if you make your staight, but having the low end means you dont want to risk your stack with this hand. Also note, with so much already in the pot, your value bet of 20 is much too small if you are going to bet. With the flush draw showing, it would be better to make it 70% of the pot if you were to bet. Checking is best though.

On the turn a flush is possible. Now you have no potential to improve to the nuts. This is a clear spot to fold. Try to be patient. Wait until you have a strong made hand such as a set, straight or flush in spots where that rates to be the best hand.


GL and have fun 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!

1) I can not do this currently as the last bonus i received was a year ago and I no longer have any money.

2)To apply pressure on an opponent, to value bet a strong hand and to steal bb and sb from weak players.

3) I have not yet passed the course.
