Hi sean3010!

With A2s from the button, I get a shove and a call in front of me. With a marginal-at-best hand, I need to muck here. With an abnormally large bet and a call, I can only call here with a premium made hand (QQ, KK, AA). Everything else is too weak and needs to be folded. Just because I have an ace or suited cards does not mean that the hand is playable. Patience is a big key in poker and I need to be able to fold my weaker hands and wait until I'm ahead.

Any hand can get lucky and win, but to win consistently, I need to be putting my chips in when I'm ahead, not when I'm most likely behind.

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,

Hand Analysis


On this depth of money, even though we will have a positional advantage post flop, I'd fold this hand facing a raise and a call from the villains. There are several combos of Tx that have us outkicked AT KT QT JT T9 and let's facotr in pocket pairs AA KK QQ JJ TT. Post flop, the board comes A 4 4, there are 16 combos of each of these hands AK AQ AJ AT A9 etc.. that could easily be part of an early position opening range and middle position flatting range, I would have checked back this flop to re-evaluate my course of action on the turn. if we are to take a stab at this pot we will either get called or raised by hands that beat us, or hands that have a decent amount of drawing equity...most of which will be ahead of us.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

1) To put a lot of pressure on opponents

2) To bluff other players off decent hands

3) To protect yourself against strong draws

I have passed the Cash Game quiz and am ready for my 2nd bonus!

Fantastic!

Your second Bankroll Builder bonus is on it's way to you, great job so far.

Watch this video that will help you on the cash game tables



There are three ways in which you can earn your next bonus.

1) Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus. Let us know if you hit that target
2) If you lose your 2nd bonus at the tables please post the hands where you lost the money with here in this thread. As soon as you post the losing hands we will advise on the next step.
3) If you make a first deposit at PokerStars you will automatically be awarded your remaining bonuses from the Bankroll Builder promotion.

Best of luck to you at the tables and we are here to help you should you have any questions.
