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.

Hi,


Hand Analysis

This is the third best starting hand in no limit hold'em. . As played, the villains could be shoving all in with such a wide range and we can expect to be ahead of most of their holdings even though some of the villains are entering the pot from early position...especially some Ax combos with a lower kicker or pocket pairs that we would be flipping with 50/50..if they did indeed have a premium holding they would have wanted to get action by open for the standard amount. On this stack depth of about 35bb this is a perfect oppurtnity to triple up by calling off our stack all in. Nice pot and nice hand.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

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!

Hi romanista_bl,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

With TT here I would prefer cbetting once and try to get my hand to showdown as cheaply as possible. Our hand has showdown value against worse pocket pairs that could call a abet on the flop and check down. Also with TT on a Q high there are three over cards that we don't want to give a free turn to so betting the flop to fold their equity share in the pot is a good idea. I don't like the turn line you took by turning your hand into a bluff because I think we are always getting called by better and against a good player they will call with Qx because there are not many hands that would x/c flop and improve on a K.

Thanks for the reply. First of all I didnt think he hit anything on a flop and betting the whole pot, after I checked, and representing the Q was a stonecold bluff by my opponent. Furthermore even if he had Qx I thought it was a pretty good move to represent AK or any Kx on a turn... Either way opponents instant fold proved to me he had absolutely nothing and that his pot bet on the flop was nothing but a bluff as I asumed...

Cheers!

Hi romanista_bl,


It appears that will need a little over 2 VPPs to reach 10 earned.


Good luck!
