Hi bratanac,

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
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 bratanac!

Your hand is one of the rare examples where you should extremely happy preflop. You have the best possible starting hand and you've got other people going all in before you!

In a normal tournament or cash game, it is basically NEVER correct fold AA preflop, even if you are facing multiple all ins in front of you.

Fortunately your hand stood up and you had a nice triple up, well played!

Have a great Christmas holiday period!

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!

Hi,


Hand Analysis

Sitting on a 45bb stack depth this hand is certainly playable in this position. However on the turn I would have consider to flat call instead of raise all in, yes there are several draws present and raising protects our hand versus those potential combos...but we are also folding out weaker hands that otherwise would have continued to stab on the river to which we can look them up for a showdown...they would specifially need a suited heart combo of to have a decent equity share on the turn.

Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee
