Hello Sasklaw,

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!

In this hand, I was curious if I made the correct call. Should I have called an All-in bet with an Ace high pair?

Hi Sasklaw!

A5o is not a great hand to play from early or middle position. Aces with weak kickers tend to result in your winning a small pot when you flop an ace because the ace scares everyone, or you lose a big pot to a villain with an ace and a better kicker. Furthermore, your A5 is not suited, so you won't be flopping a flush draw. Folding preflop is by far the best option here. Weak aces can be played from the btn or sb if it folds around to you.

On the flop, you bet nearly twice the size of hte pot. This is too big as it tends to get you valueowned. This means that all the hands you are beating typically fold so you don't win as much as you could have. Players with the second best hand may call a smaller half pot bet for example. It also means that the players calling you tend to have you beat (often an A with better kicker). So, betting big creates a spot where you lose more than necessary.

Finally, in general a top pair weak kicker hand isnt strong enough to attempt to get more than one street of value. If a villain starts betting on the turn or river, you are usually beat. Folding would be best.

The most important part in understanding why folding preflop is best.

GL and have fun 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!
