Hi,

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,

Hand Analysis

Did you have any specific reads on villain9? Generally when players re-raise an amount that deviates from optimal sizings, their play is indicative of being inexperienced and their range will be weighted towards jsut about any Ax Kx or low pocket pair combo, I'd feel fairly confident getting it all in pre-flop with this hand as we have blockers to some of the AA and KK combos. Unfortuante outcome but you did the right thing.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

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!

1.


I feel like I could've reraised a bit bigger, wanted to play a little cautious with someone who has me covered though.

2.
Protecting against draws
Getting value from big hands
Bluffing people off ok hands

3. Done!

Hi,


Hand Analysis


It's okay to play a bit more cautious with this medium pair as most board textures will present over cards in turn making us feel gun shy to call bets or bet for value. A good rule of thumb when electing to re-open the action, is to re-raise 3x the villains raise, this will help to ensure value is made and you'll have the appropriate intiative post flop.

Post flop, we can feel confiden that the villain does not have a range of 9x as we can take card removal from their range because the flop presents two nines, and it's not like a player on that stack depth would be 3bet>cold call 4bet with a range of 9x. Well played post flop.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
