Hello Kepler34,

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!

I assume i played this wrong? thought i was correct to start betting into the pot to try and get rid of a few players. got sucked in though, any suggestions? bit more reservation in the face of such a loaded hand with multiple antagonists maybe but was difficult to fold.

Hi Kepler34!

With Q5s from the BB, I get 3 limps then a min-raise. With a very bad hand and having an opp raise before me, I need to muck this preflop as it's nowhere near a strong enough hand to call with. Just because I have an ace or suited cards does not mean that the hand is playable... especially since I'm out of position.

If I saw the flop (which I would not), when I see that I have a flush draw on a paired board, I need to check and see if I can get a free turn card. I do have a draw, but do not have a made hand, so I do not want to bet. Bets post-flop also need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 opps in the pot, I cannot bet less than a pot-sized bet.
When I get a raise and a 3-bet.... with nothing but a draw (especially with it being a draw NOT to a nut hand).. I need to muck.

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!
