Hello diegots0,

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 watching 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 diegots0,

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 diegots0!

With QTo, I get a min-raise and two calls of it. While this hand does have some potential, it's not a strong enough one to call a raise into a pot with this many opponents. Due to this, I need to muck preflop. If I was on the button or cutoff and it folded to me, then I'd make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. But from this position at the table and a raise and calls in front of me, I need to muck.

If I did have a strong enough hand to 3-bet with, I would need to size the bet between 3X the previous bet (12) and a pot-sized raise (19). I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard in order to 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, something that I want to avoid whenever possible.

If I saw that I hit two pair on the flop (which I would not), I get an abnormally small min bet, a call, then an abnormally small min-raise and a call. Bets postflop need to be made based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 or more opps, I need to make a pot sized bet... BUT... this is well over 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that I'm pot-committed and cannot ever fold.. Due to this I would need to shove the flop.
However, this creates a big problem (and a good reason why I need to muck preflop). I don't know if I'm ahead. Someone could easily have a better two pair or a straight and there are a number of draws that can beat me too. I want to be getting my chips in when I'm ahead, not when I have absolutely no clue whether I'm ahead or behind.

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!
