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!

Hi kikopro13,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post
Four handed, there is certainly merits in opening A6o to steal the blinds but our hand might be too weak for this position I would rather play this hand OTB or atleast CO and even then A7o is like the worse Axo hand I would consider opening not from the button. With that said, I might be slowing down even when I do hit TP because we will have kicker problems especially after we raised flop and the player behind us called. This is not a great spot to be in, but luckily we did not lose the hand!

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 for big bet are:

1.To Protect against strong draws

2.For value

3.To bluff people off good hands

Hi,

Hand Analysis


Sitting on a 75bb stack depth I'd prefer opening for a raise of the standard amount, 3x the big blind. This will help to ensure that thin field is thinned down and value is made. The more players that are involved in the pot decrease our overall hand strength and equity in the pot...There is no way we can limp > fold this hand when villain1 raises to isolate us, unless ofcourse we had really specific reads of their tendencies and known hand ranges.

Post flop, this is a perfect board to either check to induce the villain to contiuation bet their entire range which can easily consist of Ax combos AK AQ AJ AT and proceed to do the same on the turn (value checking), or lead bet into the pre-flop raiser for value and protection. I would have preferred to check call...but both of the above mentioned lines are perfectly fine.


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
