Hi robiraju,

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 Basics 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

Hi robiraju,

I hope you learn a lot with Poker School Online!

You are facing lots of limpers preflop. I like that you checked. While your hand is fairly strong, is it not really good enough to raise with many players showing interest, as you will be out of position against most of your opponents. There is nothing wrong with seeing a free flop!

When you flop top pair, I like the bet, but I would bet significantly bigger, something like 90 chips. Min raising doesn't work as a bluff and doesn't work to extract value from worse hands as people are getting the correct price to call with any draws or pocket pairs that might turn into full houses if they hit their specific card.

On the turn you have the second nuts - you are only losing if somebody has 44, which is extremely unlikely. It is tough to extract value from worse hands here, you are looking to target someone who has a 4 and doesn't believe you. I wouldn't bet big here, but I would bet bigger than your 40 chips, I would bet something like 90 chips again as I think anyone who will call a 40 chip bet will also call a 90 chip bet.

On the river you have the absolute nuts. It's an interesting card because for the same reason that it is extremely unlikely someone has 44, other players now think that it's extremely unlikely that you have an A.

Normally I don't like massively overbetting all in as it is so transparent that you have a good hand. However in this very specific circumstance, I think it is probably a good idea as if you don't have an A, then any two cards will split the pot, so people are less willing to believe you and might call such an enormous bet.

Excellent!

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 completed and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!
