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

Sitting on this stack depth of 50bb I'd be keen to just check my option, this is Ax holding should be considered the bottom of our range due to it having such a low kicker, it's mediocre and we will most likely be at a positional disadvantage post flop if called in an inflated pot.

Post flop, regardless of what our betsizing is or if we elect to check call for pot control...we will have just over a pot sized bet remaining and without reads on the villains we wouldn't really know where we stand in terms of if we are value owning our self or getting value towned. The biggest mistakes in poker are made pre-flop, meaning good starting hand selection and position.

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. To bluff or semi-bluff against opponent
2. To win more value when holding strong hand
3. To protect against strong draw

Hi,


Hand Analysis


On such a short stack depth I would have raised 3x villains2's 4c raise plus any additional chips that are in the middle. 16c 20c would help get value while not generating to many folds as the villains are sitting deep enough to flat that sizing.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
