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!

Hi BlueNavy811h!

With AA, I get a limp in front of me. I'm going to make a standard opening raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With one limper, I will raise to 8 chips. I do not want to call because I want to try to lessen the field some, as AA plays much better against a lower number of opponents.

I see a 6-way flop on a very wet board (flush and multiple straight draws). Now an opp makes a huge overbet of 50 chips. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and the board texture (will be between 1/2 pot and a pot-sized bet). With AA here, I'm going to call the bet of 50 as the bet does not pot-commit me, so I do not need to shove.

When I see the Q on the turn, that puts even more draws out there, since a 1/2 pot bet (standard bet with one opp) now WILL pot-commit me, I will shove the turn.

The key here is to make a standard raise preflop. I do not want to limp and try to slowplay big hands, as I will end up losing much more often if there are more players in the pot.

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!

Good evening,

List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

1.To make the other players still present in the hand fold;(in case of bluff);
2.To obtain the maximum amount possible when they hold a strong hand;
3.To protect himself from the possiblity of straight, or flush, or TPTK in case of a wet board;

1)
2) done;
3) Still outstanding as I have failed the test.

Hi BlueNavy811h,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

Good raise size preflop I think we can go slightly lower maybe 0.38-0.4 would suffice.
Yuk! I hate to see an overcard, but I like the check. Once they check back I think we can go for a 1/2 pot bet to get value from worse Pocket Pairs. I don't like min-betting because that could induce a bluff from villain which we really don't want to see them raise and blow us off our winning hand.

Brilliant,

Your Bankroll Builder progress is moving along nicely and you've got your 3rd bonus!

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.
