Hi bincuga,

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

Hi bincuga!

The first tip that I see is something before the hand even starts. When sitting at a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over is a huge drain to a player's bankroll.

With KTo from the cutoff, I get a limp (the post), a min-raise, then a min 3-bet. While KTo does have some potential, it's not a strong enough hand to call a 3-bet with and due to this, I need to muck it preflop.

If I saw the flop (which I would not), when I miss and a large number of opps, I need to check and fold to any bet. I have absolutely nothing, so I need to muck to any bet. I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind. If I'm behind, I need to muck and be patient and wait for a situation when I'm ahead.

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!

Hi bincuga,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

I think ATs is a marginal hand to call with against an UTG open. If we know that our opponent opens a wide range from UTG, hands like A9-A7, KT/QT/JT then calling would be fine. But giving our stack size, with 21bbs I think we need to be looking at shoving or folding spots because we don't have room to play post flop after we call a raise.

Given that we have little behind, floating this flop is not profitable imo. So I think we should fold. It would be different if we started with a 100bb stack effective.

Why to make a big bet?
- To put a lot of pressure on opponents
- To gain value from very strong hands
- To protect against strong draws
