Hi VIPlouella,

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!

Thank you very much for qualifying me

First step done! I had already watched the 2 attached videos.

For the second step, here's my first win in the table



I tried doing the tight aggressive style of playing =) Although the player before me had been playing loosely and just betting out of control..

As for the third step, I'm half way the Poker Basics Course.

I'll be posting very soon once I've finished and passed the course! =)

Cheers!

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 VIPlouella!

With QQ from the small blind, I get 3 limps in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 3 limpers, I will bet 6BB or 60 chips. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard to help conceal the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent.

I see a 4-way flop with all undercards. I'm going to make a value bet here and the key is the sizing of it. Bets postflop need to be made based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 3 opps, I need to bet 3/4 pot, so I will bet 548... BUT... this is over 1/3 of my remaining chips. This means that if I bet this much, I'm pot-committed and cannot fold. Due to this, I'm going to shove the flop.
I don't want to bet less than this, as I could give the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me if I do so.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

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!
