Hello Ph03nix9,

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 watching 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!

Here is a hand I played at a full ring play money table:



Should I have folded after the raise on the flop?

I have also completed the other 2 steps.

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.

Hi Ph03nix9!

With JJ from UTG+1, I get a limp in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With one limper, I will raise to 10.

I see a 7-way flop with an A. When it checks to me, while I do normally c-bet, this is an instance where I'm going to check, as with this many players in the pot someone most likely has an A and is ahead of me. If I did make a c-bet, I need to size my post-flop bets based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4+ opps, I would need to make a pot-sized bet of 71. I can't bet less than this or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me... IF... I'm even ahead in the first place.

An opp now shoves on me. To call this bet, I would need to put 71 chips into a pot that will be 303 (23.4%). This means that to even breakeven on this call, I need to have the opp have a worse hand about 1 in 4 times. With there being an A on the board, the overwhelming majority of the time they will have an A, so I'm not going to win this at a high enough percentage of the time and due to this, I need to fold as I only have 2 outs and from the rule of 4 and 2, my 2 outs are only worth 4% equity each, so my hand is only worth 8%.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

Brilliant!

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!

I know I played this wrong, but how should I have played it?



The three reasons a player may want to make a big bet are;
1) To put pressure on opponents
2) To bluff people off decent hands
3) To gain value from very strong hands


I have also completed the cash game quiz.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Sitting on close to a 100bb stack depth facing a limp and a 3x raise, I like that you closed the action, even though we are not getting the proper pot odds to set mine (hit three of a kind) villain1 and villain8 are sitting deep enough for us to potentially win a huge pot. We'll have a positional advantage post flop being on the button which will prove to be paramount in terms of the ability to dictate the course of action for each individual villain.

Did you have any specific reads about this villains tendencies from previously played hands and known hand ranges? Moving forward, please provide these details when submitting a hand for evaluation.

Post flop, we hit a set, there are two lines that we can take both of which have merit coupled with the usual down side of incorrectly assessing hand ranges (no worries, it happens to every poker player, even some of the world's best)

1.) Call. This is to keep the villains entire range barreling into us. (down side: It's a draw heavy board. There are many turn cards that hurt our course of action and quite likely the villain to, if the turn came a heart or a straight card it will likely slow down the betting action...essentially both of us will be gun shy readless)


2.) Raise. This is to extract value from high card combos AK AQ AJ AT KQ or Tx combos that could turn equity QT JT KT AT (16 combos of each hand), over pairs TT JJ QQ KK AA or two card flush combos | | | | | | and , but bear in mind that two card flush combos are going to account for such a small portion of a tight middle position starting hand range. Our hand is really disguised on this board texture and there are several hands we can get value from, I'd prefer raising this flop (or turn) 3x the amount of V1's continuation bet, the villain is sitting with a deep stack and can afford to call.. it could induce the villain to spazz out (no disrespect intended lol) and re-raise or get them to shrug call all the way down with most of their continuing range. As much as possible we want to build up the stack to pot ratio for future streets! (down side: we fold out all of the villains high card combos, Tx combos).

On the river there is going to be such a small portion of Tx in this villains value range, even though the general rule of thumb at 9max is that relative hand strength to most board textures is weighted towards the nuts (close to best possible hand) there are so many over pairs that they can be turning into a bluff, high card combos. missed heart draw and Jx combos. I'd call just as you did. Unfortunate outcome to this hand, start to take note of villains tendencies for future hands against them.. (example: BarrelingBobby three barrels flush draw and straight draw with a bet sizing of 2/3 pot on texture )


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

CannonLee
