Hello Naperva,

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,

This is the replay I would like you to help me to understand some questions I have.

1. Limpfest is going on, On SB I thought if I raise in that spot everybody would call anyway so I chose limping too 18:1 odds. KJ is not good raising in early position right? Is my play OK?

2. Even I cathed two pairs, that was a scary board. Is it justified to go all-in with this loose opponent?

Thank you

Hi Naperva!

From the SB with KJ, I get 7 limps in front of me. Normally from the SB, I want to either raise or fold, as I only want to be playing strong hands due to the large positional disadvantage that I have post-flop.
If I thought that the opps could fold and if the opps are loose, then I'd raise, but if any of the opps were tight, then I'd fold because I'm probably outkicked. If they're all going to call anyway, then this would be the situation where I'd call and see the flop.

I flop two pair on a very wet board and here is why I don't like limping preflop... I have absolutely no clue whether I'm ahead or behind. If I'm ahead, I want to bet. If I'm behind, I want to check and hopefully see a free turn card. Without knowing, I'm going to make a standard value bet. Bets post-flop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 or more opps, I need to make a pot-sized bet of 19. I do not want to bet less, as I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me... something that I want to avoid if at all possible.
I then get min-raised and since the amount is for less than what I should have bet to start with, I'm going to call and re-evaluate on the turn.
I do not want to re-raise here, as a standard bet sizing for this would be to between 3X the previous bet (48) and a pot-sized raise (83). With multiple opps in the hand, I tend to go for the higher end of this.. but this causes me a problem. If I raise to 63 or more, I will have 1/3 of my chips in the pot, which means that I'm pot-committed and cannot fold. Due to this, the only re-raise that I can do is to shove and I don't want to shove since I'm not sure whether I'm ahead or behind.

With the opp calling the raise on the flop, I'm going to check to them on the turn and will call a small bet or fold to a large one.

On the river, I'm going to check and hope to get to a cheap showdown as I'm beat by any Q or a higher two pair and the opp can easily have any of these combinations.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

P.S. Please let me know when you have passed the basics quiz.

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, I passed the cash quiz and the answers are;

1. To get value from very strong hands
2. To protect my hand from draws
3. To bluff decent hands out

And this is the hand I played. He was new on the table 3rd or 4th hand. What do you think about my fold and barrels? I'm clueless about this hand. Thank you.

Hi Naperva,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

I think with JJ on the flop we have the option to check back as there are not many worse hands that we can get value from. Betting is also a good plan considering the board has a FD, but I would much prefer checking back the turn for pot control. Good fold OTR.

Hi Naperva!

It can take 48-72 hours for the vpp's to register in our system. Right now, I only show you at just over 11vpp total, which isn't enough to be 10VPP's only after the last bonus. If you're at 14+, then let's give it a day to see if it shows in our system.
