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.

Hi viensvienigs!

With AKs, I get 2 limps (the posts) then a min-raise and a call. I'm going to make a standard 3-bet and the key is the sizing of it. I'm going to raise to between 3X the previous bet (12) and a pot-sized raise (15). With two opps already in the hand, I'll opt for the larger end of the range and raise to 15.

I then get a raise to 47, then a min-raise to 82. Here is where I need to have a read on my opps. If both opps are very loose (playing like a maniac), then I'm going to call. If either of the opps is playing tight, then I need to fold to the bet of 82 as one of them should have a pair, which means that I'm behind.

After the call, I get 2 shoves. Here, once again, a read on the opps will be the determining factor. If the opps are maniacs, then I'll call... if not, then I'll fold.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

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 viensvienigs!

Preflop looks good. On the flop, I would recommend betting a bit smaller. You need to get value and protect your hand from the possible draws. The best size is about 70%. Betting the pot is too heavy and will often get you value owned. In other words, all the hands you are beating fold, whereas only the hands beating you will continue.

The same is true on the turn. I would recommend betting about 70%. When the villain comes over the top with a large all in raise we need to reevaluate. You only have "just a pair" and the villain's line looks quite strong. Note, had you bet smaller on the flop and turn, then it would have been less likely that the villain moved all in on the turn since he would have had too much behind. Moreover, it would have been easier for you to fold since you would not have already committed so much of your stack.

Did you have any read on this villian? Without a strong read, I try to avoid calling all ins postflop with just a pair. Folding to the raise may have been best, regardless of what the villain was actually holding. However, the important point with this hand is your betsizing. It created this situation on the turn.

GL and have fun at the tables!
