Hello,

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 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!

Don't worry, your play gets reloaded every 30 minutes. It's important that you play only ring games for this promotion, we can't allow tournament hands, sorry.

Hi Sugarmare,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

I don't advocate limping into pots. I would rather open raise this hand OTB to steal the blinds.
Also your betsizing doesn't accomplish much. Before you bet, think of what you want to accomplish with your bets. Obviously, you want your opponents to fold when we bet with just Ace high. So basically betting the minimum won't accomplish that.

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!

Three reasons I may want to place a big bet
  1. To protect against strong draws
  2. To put pressure on opponent
  3. To bluff opponents off strong hand

Hi,

Hand Analysis



Did you have any reads on villain5?
Sitting on a stack depth of 100bb i'd proceed with caution holding this hand it's not really strong enough to be raising over a limp and we'll be at a positional disadvantage, especially pre-flop...there are several hands that have us out kicked AK AQ AJ AT A9 etc... Post flop, rearely ever are we going to feel comfortable calling bets or making bets due to our kicker issues, let's just consider this a mediocre hand.

Post flop, up until the river everything was fine. We have a minimal amount invest and we split the pot with all other combos of Ax that are not AK, there are only a select few combos of AK most of which would have enterd the pot for a raise pre-flop...Hands like 77, A2, K2 Q2 are all hands that they could plausibley have, I may consider folding to save bets for a better spot (especially if I had no reads on the villina)

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
