Hi Strivener,

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.

Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.
He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Cheers

Hi Strivener!

With KK on the button and a limper in front of me, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper (4000). I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard in order to help conceal the strength of my hand. I also don't want to bet less than this because I can possibly be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. Players that bet more of less based on the strength of their hand are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something that I absolutely want to avoid.

I flop top set, but there are three spades on the board. When the opp checks to me, I'm going to make a standard value bet. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With one opp, a standard bet is 1/2 pot, so I will bet 3750. Once again, I don't want to bet less than this or I can be giving the opp the correct odds to try to outdraw me.
The opp now min-raises me. Even if the opp has a flush, I have 7 outs on the turn and 10 outs on the river to improve, so I'm going to call the 3k and re-evaluate on the turn. I do not want to raise here, as I may not have the best hand.

I don't want to be all-in unless I'm sure that I will have the best hand after all 5 cards on the board are revealed. If there are combinations of cards that can beat me, then I want to bet just enough to give the opp a -EV draw (one where they expect to lose chips), but not to overbet, as I may not have the best hand.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Excellent!

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 completed and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!
