Hi Trenton365,

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!

So been playing 9 handed in the 1/2 tables with 200 buy in, managed to get in a couple double ups to get the stack to nearly 1000.

Start under the gun with AJs so raise it up then call re-raise to see flop. Hit a flush draw so C-Bet out 50 (just over half the pot) then call the raise to see turn. Miss the flush so check to see an all in. Now this guy been pretty reckless but all I have if I miss is a busted draw. I call and miss. Smart move or could I have folded there?

Hi Trenton365,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

Preflop I think with the small bet size from V7 we can easily call and play multiway with a suited Ace. If the raise was big I think we can fold AJ. I also don't think re-raising can be in our favor because I don't want to get all in with AJ. So okay for the call.

OTF you said that you hit a flush draw so Cbet. Here we are not the preflop raiser anymore. V7 took the lead from us when they 3bet us preflop, so we cannot say this is a cbet. What you have done is lead into the pot or what is also known as a donk bet. I don't mind that line with the NFD and an overcard. But an alternative could also be to check to the PFR and come over the top. As played, we should be folding to the turn all in bet because we don't have the right odds to call. With 9 diamonds as outs we have 18% equity < and the pot odds are 30%

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!

I have another hand for analysis.

I feel I played it well, obviously just lost out on the end but wonder if more aggression earlier in the hand might have won it sooner?

Hi Trenton365,

I generally don't advocate limping into pots. I like to raise or fold instead. With K4s though I think its a weak hand to play especially with the position we are in and the number of players left to act behind us, so I'd fold.

As played, I'm probably betting the flop when it got checked to me. We have the second nut flush draw, an overcard to one pair and we might have fold equity and pick up the pot when no one has anything. If we do get called we have outs to fall back on.
