Hi M1rz4,

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

3) Pass the Poker Basic course.

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 steps completed.

Best of Luck!

Hi M1rz4!

With KJo from UTG, I'm going to muck preflop. From UTG, the only non pairs that I play are AK and maybe AQs. All others are too weak for the position at the table as it's too easy for me to be dominated by a better K or J. If I was on the button or the cutoff and it folded to me, I'd be more than happy to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper, but not from early position.
Another thing that I avoid when playing is open-limping. If my hand is not strong enough to raise with, then I need to muck it.

If I saw the flop, which I would not, here is why I don't want to limp. Yes, I have two pair, but I have absolutely no clue whether I'm ahead or not. Someone could already have a straight and there are plenty of draws that the opps could have.
I now get an abnormally large bet from an opp. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture and will be between 1/2 and a pot-sized bet. With 4 or more opps, a standard bet is a pot-sized bet.
Here is where I need a read on the opp too. Are they playing loose or tight. If they are tight, then they could easily have the straight and I need to muck. If they have a draw, then I want to call. I do not want to raise, as their bet already priced out the draws, so a raise won't accomplish anything. If I did raise, I would need to make my bet 3X the previous bet (a standard raise).
I also do not want to be all-in, as I have no clue whether I'm ahead or behind.

The best decision in this hand is to muck preflop.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

P.S. KJ is called the amateur hand.
