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 simonatoo!

With KQo in the BB, I get two limps, a min-raise and a 3-bet to 17. While KQ does have some potential, it's not strong enough to call a raise with, let alone a re-raise. Due to this, I need to muck and wait for a better hand or a better situation.

If I did have a strong enough hand to 4-bet with here, since a standard re-raise is to 3X the previous bet and this bet is 1/3 of my remaining stack, I would shove now, but I'm only doing this with AA, KK, QQ or maybe AK or JJ. All other hands are too weak to shove.

Hope this helps and good luck 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!

Hi simonatoo!

Preflop you have A7s AND position on the raiser. Ask yourself, what are you hoping to flop? A flush draw would be great. A7 doesn't give you straight draws. Moreover, the 7 makes for a weak kicker if you flop an A. The original raiser may have a better kicker than you. This makes for a dangerous spot where you can lose a big pot with top pair. Actually, I prefer folding preflop. I would call with A2s-A5s and A10-AK, but fold A6-A9. You decided to 3bet. What are you hoping for here? A7 is not strong enough to bet 3bet for value as no hands worse than yours will call. At 2NL I would rarely 3b as a bluff either since players tend to call moreoften than fold.

As played you get two callers which is not good. The flop misses your hand completely since you don't have a pair or any draw. In spots like this it is unlikely that your hand will improve on the remaining streets. Just check-fold and save your chips for a better spot. Betting big as you did will get you value owned. This means only hands beating you will call and after the preflop action at least one of the villains will have a stonger hand than yours.

There is nothing to cry over here though as long as you learn from your mistakes and choose a better line in the future. No worries

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hello,

'Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus'

Remember it's 10 VPPs earned AFTER you got your last buy-in, not 10 VPPs total (any VPPS earned before you got your last buy-in do not count)

If you have earned 10 VPPs AFTER you got your 2nd bonus then your 3rd bonus should be credited to you automatically within 24 hours.

Let me know when you get it and I'll advise on the next step.

Brilliant,

Your Bankroll Builder progress is moving along nicely and you've now got your 3rd bonus!

Step Three

Now we really want you to up your game! Your challenge is to earn 10 VPPs after getting today's buy-in.

Note that any VPPs that you have earned up to this point won't count, only those earned AFTER you get your 3rd buy-in.

When you hit your target of 10 VPPs we will award you with your final Bankroll Builder bonus. Let us know when you reach the target.

Also, if you make a deposit at this stage we will also award you with your final bonus.

Best of Luck at the tables and let us know as soon as you have earned the 10 VPPs or if you make a deposit.
