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, I have completed all 3 steps. About this hand, I'm not sure if I raised enough on preflop?

Hi deguan29!

With QQ, I get three limpers 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 raise to 12.

I see a 6-way flop with an ace on it. When it checks to me, since one of the opps is likely to have me beat, I'm going to check and hope to see a free turn card.

The turn K is about the worst card in the deck for me, as now an ace or king has me beat. When it checks to me, I'm going to check behind again.

The river is a blank and now an opp makes an abnormally small min bet. Bets postflop should be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture and with this many opps, the standard sizing is a pot sized bet. With them only betting 2 chips, I'm absolutely going to call and hope that they don't have an A nor K.

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!

- To protect against strong draws
- To put a lot of pressure on opponent
- To gain value from very strong hands

Hi deguan,

I think preflop we should either look to squeeze by raising to win the pot or folding. I think our call preflop is marginal there given our hand strength and the position we are in. As played, I think check raising the flop or turn are both valid options. From there the hand plays itself out.
