Let's get this bankroll builder started! I've been playing some SnGs and loving it. Pokerstars has provided a great way to learn and also the best place to play. I've been watching some videos and it's been great. Cheers to future success!!!

Hi boldbets!

I see one thing before the hand even starts. Whenever sitting at a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over to start playing immediately is a huge drain to a player's bankroll over time.

With ATo from UTG, I need to immediately muck this, as it's not a strong enough hand to play from this position. If I had AK or AA, then I'd make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper, but all other hands with an A are too weak from this position at the table. Position is a very large key in poker and from early position, I only want to be playing premium hands. Just because I have an ace or suited cards does not mean that the hand is playable.

When an opp raises, I definitely need to muck AT, as it takes a much stronger hand to call a raise, than to raise with.. and ATo isn't even strong enough to raise with from early position.

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!

Here is an interesting hand. I thought I played well but there is a debate on the turn if I should raise or not. His small bet seems to be very weak and I think I could have taken it down with a raise on the turn as a semi bluff.

Hi boldbets!

At 2NL there are a ton of players that just don't fold. Taking aggressive semi-bluff lines isn't usually the best strategy at 2NL. It is better to avoid bluff and simply value bet your made hands. This is important in your hand in two spots.

Preflop, I think I would just take the free flop rather than raising. Either the villain folds and you win a small pot, or he calls and you will have an unclear postflop situation. I would be happier raising with QJs since it has better potential and is easier to play postflop.

As played, you get a monotone flop. I like your flop line. There is no reason to inflate the pot without a strong hand here. The turn is good for you since you now have flush outs and straight outs which might be good. If you are going to take an aggressive semi-bluff line, then I would consider raising about 70% of the pot here rather than on the river. Raising now might win the hand. Many drawing hands that are drawing dead against you may call now (but fold on a missed river) and you do have decent chances to improve going to the river.j

On the river you do have second best pair. I would not raise though. Most hands that you are beating such as missed draws will fold so you wont gain more value from them. Whereas the hands beating you will always call or worse 3bet you forcing you to fold. Checking the hand down with your showdown value is safest. You want to be careful not to get value owned in spots like this, especially since you didnt have a read on the villain.

GL and have fun at the tables!
