Hi CaleBG3,

You are eligible for the Bankroll Builder promotion, good job!

NB: Bookmark this page so that you'll find it easily in the future.

Step One

Let's begin with the basics. Please take some time to study the Poker Basic Course and pass the quiz at the end of the course.
Let us know as soon as you have passed the quiz and we will credit your account with your first Bankroll Builder bonus.

Brilliant!

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.

Great Job!
You passed the Cash Game Quiz and know you've shown that you have a great understanding of the fundementals of playing poker. We have now credited your account with your 2nd bonus.

Step Three

Please play a 0.01/0.02 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 Trainer will analyze it for you so please post an interestig hand where you have questions. Give as much information about the hand as possible, for example, had you any reads on your opponents?

Hi Caleb,

I was playing through this hand and I like every decision you made until the river.

Preflop I'd probably raise to $0.08 rather than $0.06, as the normal raise size should be 3x the BB + 1BB for any limper/poster, but your size is also OK.

I like the fact that your bet both flop and turn for value. When you are betting in this spot, you are trying to give villain an incorrect price to call with straight and/or flush draws or worse one pair hands than you. Your flop bet size is great but you should have made your turn size bigger as if he is on a draw, you aren't going to get any more money out of him on the river if he misses, so you need to get your money out of him now. Another bet of about 2/3 pot ($0.22-0.27) would be better.

On the river I like your decision to check, but I think it should be with the intention of check/calling. It is tough to believe that you're going to get a worse hand than yours to call another river bet, so you are checking to see a cheap showdown if villain has us beat or hope that he chooses to bluff one of his missed draws.

When villain makes this tiny river bet, I see no reason to raise, you are just value-owning yourself, which means that you will likely only get called by better hands and certainly get all worse hands to fold, which doesn't achieve anything when we could have just called. You will only lose more money when he has you beat by taking this line.
