Hello PokerAllinAA,

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!

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Sitting on a stack depth of 100bb it might be tempting to complete our small blind option when there are multiple limpers as our pot odds are priced in. This hand would have some merit completing our small blind even though we will be at a positional disadvantage post flop...as it has decent playabilty post flop for top pair with a decent kicker or equity to a draw. Versus a limping range... which is usually perceived as a range of weak holdings, we wont be in to bad of shape. Food for thought, each time these type of situations arise in the future, if the hand is deemed unplayable from other positions and/or entering the pot for some bets...just fold it, the biggest post flop mistakes are made pre-flop....meaning good starting hand selection.

Post flop, I would have elected to the turn and river just as you did.. This is to get value from high card Kx combos and 7x. Even though a limping range is considered weak..there are some Ax combos (16 combos of each hand) that can certainly be well within the villains range A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 A9. If the villains didn't have Ax there are only a handful straight combos that can be in the villains range on this type of board texture.. The are very few hands we can get value from...so bet sizing would be of the most importance...1/2pot to 2/3 pot would be a sufficient amount. Usually a limper dynamic is to trap, slow play (loose passive tendencies) at any point in time during this hand if we got raised..my intentions would be to fold (unless other specific reads dictated to me otherwise)

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi PokerAllinAA,

I hope you find the hand analysis helpful. I wanted to award you with your first bonus, however I don't see your Poker Basic pass in our system here. It might be a glitch but I suggest you take the quiz again and then hopefully I'll see your pass from this end. If you encounter any issues please let me know.

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!

Hi,

Hand Analysis


Did you have any specific reads on villain9 and their known hand ranges? The small sizing on the flop may have induced a check raise bluff, however I would have made close to the standard sizing of 2/3 pot and there would also be merit in checking back this flop to open up the villains stabbing range on the turn...if they had a draw to broadway they have only 4outs, if they had an underpair they'll have only two outs... which is minimal equity and not something we need to worry about in terms of them spiking that card. But as played we have to re-raise all in, based on our stack depth, we are to short to flat the check raise and could potentially be losing value if a scary turn card came for the villain..


Hand Analysis

Generally a limping range is perceived as a weak range of holdings... I would have elected to raise the standard amount of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper...this will help to ensure a pot is built and value is made..Plus it'll help give us the intiative in the pot. There are some draw backs to this though...inflating the pot knowing that we'll be at a positional disadvantage post flop could prove to make our course of action tough if over cards come..

Post flop, we can continuation bet the standard sinzing of 2/3 to 3/4 pot as this flop texture plausibly hits our range...or we can check to save bets. The villains could easily have Kx K7 K8 K9 KT, Qx QJ QT Q9 Q8 or Ax with a stray heart (16 combos of each hand)..

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

Hi CannonLee
