Well done Luniaril!

You've passed the basic test and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

Step Two

The Poker Basics test was easy right? Well, there's a lot more to learn on the road to becoming a profitable poker player.

Now study the Cash Game course and once you

think you have it mastered 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.

Let us know as soon as you have passed the Cash Game Quiz and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!

Great Job Luniaril!

You passed the Cash Game Quiz and so you've shown that you have a great understanding of the fundamentals of playing poker.

We have now credited your account with your 2nd bonus.

Step Three

Please play a 1/2 cent Real Money table 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.



NB: You must post a Cash Game hand only, tournament hands do not count for this promotion. You must use the Hand Replayer

only to post your hand, we cannot accept hands posted in any other way.

Once you post your hand one of our Trainers will analyse it for you so please post an interesting hand where you have

questions. Give as much information about the hand as possible, for example, had you any reads on your opponents?

i got a few questions, i was planning on not to play real money yet until i make sure i am greatly improved my game, ( also reading a poker training book at the moment and i want to finish reading it completely ) so it may take a while until i complete 3rd step,

so my question is, is there an expiration date for this bankroll builder bonus, (i mean do i have to use it until some time or else it gets removed etc like that), or once it's given it's in my account permanently ?

Hi Luniaril

You can take as long as you wish and the bonuses will still be there for you (if you already earned them) or available (for bonuses yet to be awarded).

Here in river i decided to bluff like i hit flush, but villain jammed and i had to fold.

My question is, was it worth to bluff in here ? and if yes what was the ideal bet sizing for it ?




Edit: i know the 4th step is attending to a live training, i already got a live training in my schedule tonight actually, since i posted my hand and completed 3rd step, will my live training tonight count as 4th step?

Hi Luniaril,

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 normally within the next 24 hours (but can sometimes take a little longer,

especially at weekends) and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Regarding the 4th Step, it must be a live training session that takes place after this post was posted, so if that is the case then please supply the details (Date/Time and Title of the session you attend).

Hi Luniaril!

Nice job folding on the river The villain is going to have a flush there pretty much every time.

The main issue in this hand is preflop. You are out of position in the sb and your hand does not play well postflop. We should fold weak offsuited aces in these spots. Ask yourself what are you hoping to flop? You might get a straight, but you will be at the bottom end if you do. You won't be flopping a flush draw with unsuited cards. If you flop a 2, you will never have top pair. The worst scenerio is that you flop an A. Either you win a small pot because the A scares the villain into folding. Or, we lose a big pot where the villain also has an A, but with a better kicker. In other words, there aren't many flops that we can value bet with confidence. This makes it very hard to play weak aces. Being out of position and againt multiple opponents makes this even harder to play.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hmm i see that now thanks, i should've folded, at the time i was thinking only 1 person entered the pot and i feel like, there aren't many players in the pot and i should defend my blind, but i realised my mistakes at river and folded with minimum loss

i have a question, i can't decide either to focus and train for cash games or sng games.

first i should explain what is my goal and where am i at that goal currently, my plan is to play as a serious player and earn some extra side income on my free time,
i am relatively new in poker, ( i dont count the years i played casually with play money) as i just started to take poker seriously and started studying and improving my game for real money play.

now, i got a 8$ bankroll from bankroll builder promo (edit: also soon gonna deposit at least 10$ to get the sng quiz reward tickets )

so my initial question is, what is the best/safer/stable/profitable (whatever you call it) way for building a bankroll, and after making enough bankroll what is the more profitable, effective (profit/hour) way to grind money?

since i played a lot play money stuff before, i am more familiar with cash game playsyle, i like to get up from table when im bored, but sng doesnt take much time like mtt so im ok with sng too. because of these i got sng (45m or 90m, maybe 180) and micro/low stakes cash multitable games in my mind. (starting with 1-2 tables, will increase over time to 10-12 max)

so in your experience, what will be the better way for me to build a bankroll and then grind gor money.


Edit: at the moment for bankroll building ahar010's 5$ to 100$ bankroll building video series looks like the optimal choise. ( thanks to Dave for the advice) im still open for other ideas for bankroll building though.

but for grinding when reached enough bankroll, still can't decide what to do at all, cash games have higher profit, but also higher risk, in sng you get effected by higher variance (especially in 180m). but losing risk is minimised, so it looks like a little safer and slower path compared to cash.


Looking for advice. Thanks.

Cash tables have less variance than tournaments. If you are building your bankroll from scratch, I would suggest sticking at 2NL cash games until you get your bankroll up to a more comfortable level. If you want to take a shot at sngs, just make sure you are rolled for the level you are playing. Once you have a comforatable bankroll, it becomes more a choice of personal preferance. Some players prefers sngs, others mtts and some cash. And some, like myself, play both. I play primarily play cash for building my bankroll, but I play a fair amount of tournaments as well.

PS: dont play any sngs until you are finished with the bankroll builder promo After that try whatever looks good and use all the resources available in the forum. There is a ton of great info here and plenty of members/trainers happy to help out.

GL!
