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

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

Best of Luck!

I've payed 100 because i knew that 2,3 suited is speculative, I've had a draw on the flop and I played aggressive going all in hoping to hit the straight draw (not a very good all in) and it payed back Ace on the draw, and that's how I took 2 players out.

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 CAlexandru93!

With 23s from the button, I get a limp, then an abnormally large raise and a call. A standard raise for this opp would have been to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With a very bad hand I need to muck this preflop. Just because I have an ace or suited cards does not mean that they are playable. Poker is a game of patience and I need to be able to muck my bad hands and wait until I get better ones.

If I saw the flop (which I would not), when I flop the bottom end of a straight draw, I get a very large bet and a shove. I cannot call nor raise here as even if I hit the straight, I'm most likely going to be beat by a better straight. I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind (and I have the absolute worst hand possible with this board).

The key is to muck bad hands preflop and to have the patience to wait for better ones.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

So usually it is not good to play such a small straight, I'll keep that in mind thanks a lot for that tip next time I won't invest so much in small straights.

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!
