Hi yabadubadoob,

Hand histories must be converted by the hand replayer using the method outlined in post #3. No other form of hand history will be accepted.

Hi yabadubadoob!

The first tip for this hand is one that I see before the hand even starts. Whenever sitting at a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Playing extra blinds over and over will be a huge drain to a player's bankroll and something that I want to avoid.

With AJo, I get 2 limps in front of me (yes, the post counts as a limp). I will make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 2 limps, I will bet 5BB or 10 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.. something that I want to avoid.

I then get a HUGE overbet shove and a call. When it gets to me, I absolutely need to muck here as I need to have a premium, made hand to call (QQ, KK, AA). AJ is not this strong, so I need to fold. I want to only be putting my chips into the pot when I'm most likely to be ahead, not when I'm likely behind.

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!

Hey,

Wondering if you could take a look at this hand for me and see whether I'd qualify for the 2nd phase of the build a bankroll promotion? I was slow playing the hand in this example with a beautiful flop that I probably should have bet my opponents off the hand with. Please offer some of your own insight and which steps I have missed to qualify for the 2nd phase of the promotion give away. Thanks for all the help!

You need to follow and complete all the steps in post #11 above to continue with the bankroll builder promotion.

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
