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
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!

Pot steal? - Fri Oct 11, 2013, 01:13 PM

Hi,

Just took part in a Pokerschool tournament with a ticket, and there were a few times I felt like I should have tried to steal the blinds. This is one of them:



My concern was my position, and that it was the big stack I would be attempting to steal from.

Any advice?

PS I know it says 'Play money' but I figure since it was a free entry for me, same thing.

Hi,

Hand Analysis



On this stack depth of 15bb we could consider stealing the blinds from this position, however, it would ultimately come down the villains left behind us to act and their tendencies from previously played hands. If they have been playing really tight and only calling an all in with the goods (tight range) we could easily get away this, as the times we do get called by their non pair holdings..we'll have a decent amount of live equity. If they have been playing loose, I'd fold this hand and wait for KTs+ Ax QJ and all pocket pairs 33+. Our stack represents half of all the villains behind us..they shouldn't be calling us to light, but read less I'd fold.

If the table is tight, loosen up. If the table is loose, tighten up.

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!
