Hello,

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 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!

I've done all the steps.

Here's my hand, all the players was playing really loose and agressive but I dont know if my raise preflop was correct. I called the all-in because every player was going all-in with any two cards.

Hi DaniPieroni!

With AJo from UTG, I'm going to fold this immediately, as it's not a strong enough hand due to the positional disadvantage I'll have post-flop, especially against aggressive opps that are likely to raise. If I had AK or AA then I'd make a standard opening raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper (30 chips), but no other hands with an A are strong enough to play from this position.

When another player calls the raise and there is a shove after it, I need to muck. I need to have QQ, KK or AA in order to call a huge overbet shove like this. Other hands are too marginal and need to be mucked.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

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!

A player may want to make a big bet when:
-Trying to protect a hand from strong draws.
-Trying to get a big value from a strong hand.
-For bluffing people out of decent hands and win the pot.

I've already passed the quiz. Here´s my hand: I dont know if I made a mistake betting or was a mistake calling his push

Hi DaniPieroni,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

I think you played your hand well. I might raise their flop donk bet to 0.18, but that doesn't make too much difference because when they call we will still be able to bet them all in with less than a pot size bet. I am never folding the turn with the top of my range here. They could be overplaying a pocket pair or flush draw. Unlucky turn card for us, but well played

Hi DaniPieroni,

Sorry to hear you lost ur roll. But it's okay, atleast the play was correct The only way I'm folding KK is that if the Villain flips over AA before I go all in :P

Cooler here

Brilliant,

Your Bankroll Builder progress is moving along nicely and you will receive your 3rd bonus later today!

Step Three

Now we really want you to up your game! Your challenge is to earn 10 VPPs after getting today's buy-in.

Note that any VPPs that you have earned up to this point won't count, only those earned AFTER you get your 3rd buy-in.

When you hit your target of 10 VPPs we will award you with your final Bankroll Builder bonus. Let us know when you reach the target.

Also, if you make a deposit at this stage we will also award you with your final bonus.

Best of Luck at the tables and let us know as soon as you have earned the 10 VPPs or if you make a deposit.
