Hi,

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

3) Pass the Poker Basic course.

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 steps completed.

Best of Luck!

Hi,

I passed the quiz and now I am going to put replay of my one hand for anaylising so I completed all 3 steps. I hope this will be enough for the begining.

Here is the replayed hand:
Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Best regards,

Hi,

Hand Analysis



Sitting on a 40bb stack depth I would have folded this hand. It will not be flopping strong enough for it to be a profitable hand in the long run, as there is a good chance that we could be out kicked by a better range of Tx or better.

Post flop, I would have elected to save bets and just check my option all the way down to the river with the intentions of folding to any bets made by the villains involved in the pot. The reason for this is our equity in the pot is minimal and we have to discount all of our outs that are a club as that could give one of the villains a better made hand, plus if we pair our ten our main concern will be of our kicker card.

It's not often that we win a pot at showdown in a multiway pot with ten high. Did the villain have 8 high?


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

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!

Hi,

Hand Analysis



On this depth of money I would have maybe consider 3betting the villain pre-flop, only if I had specific reads about their tendencies (if they are loose). This will in turn isolate a cut off wide range and squeeze out the blinds which would limit the amount of players involved in the pot, greatly increasing our overall hand strength. Plus, we'll have a positional advantage post flop which will make our decision much easier.

Post flop, this is a middling board texture and we hold blockers to the villain, whether they are drawing or have a made hand for the straight. With several different draws present coupled with the villain having at least one over card to the nine the vast majority of the time, I would have bet 2/3 to /34 pot size for thin value. You were correct in betting this flop, just make it a tad bit bigger on stack depths exceeding 50bb+


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee
