Hi CR4ZYCANUCK,

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
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!

Here is a hand I got wiped out on with A,T against A,9. Seems to happen to me a lot. I not sure if I am just unlucky or doing something wrong. I should beat him most of the time by the math you would think. Maybe I should not have called his raise.

Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.
He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Hi,


Hand Analysis



Did you have any specific reads on villain8? Sitting on a 50bb stack depth being first to act pre-flop we could enter the pot for a raise, however if the action behind us get's reopened I'd be keen to want to fold in this spot. In a cash game villains will tend to not re-raise early position opens with a loose range, generally they'll be doing it with close to the top of their range (unless our reads on the villain dictate otherwise to call the all in). There are several combos of Ax that have us outkicked AK AQ AJ, premium pocket pairs AA KK QQ JJ TT and pocket pairs 99 88 77 66 etc.. Our hand is the type that should be played post flop, only when we are sitting with a smaller stack size should we consider playing for stacks with a hand like this from this position.

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!

Three reasons why a player may want to make a big bet.
1 To put a lot of pressure on opponents
2 To gain value from any strong hand
3 To bluff people off decent hands

Hi CR4ZYCANUCK,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

I really don't like raising there with 77. We have a good hand to call and set mine against two opponents but we don't have a strong hand to 3bet for value and plan to get our money in preflop. And when they 4bet us like they did we lose the price to call to set mine because when we set mine we want to have atleast 15x the bet behind in stacks to make our setmining profitable since we will only hit a set 1 in 10.

Thanks Jeff

Hi CR4ZYCANUCK,

The quiz answers are not available to any of us. Take your time with this test, it can be a challenge. Also, it may be helpful if you take notes that you can refer to during the test.

Good luck!
