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


First Step


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.

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.

Best of Luck!

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 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.

OK I have a few questions about this hand. Holyxzx had been playing fairly tightyly and so is a re-raise in this position always the correct move? Yes, i won the pot uncontested but what if he 4-bets? Is just calling a bad play too?

Hi Paul!

The tighter the opp is here, the more likely that I am to just flat call as my hand is too strong to fold, but may not be ahead. If I do raise, I'd raise to about 15-18 cents and if I do get 4-bet, then it's an easy fold for me as a tight player will almost always be ahead of AQ. If the opp was very loose, then I'll 3-bet the overwhelming majority of the time.
This situation is definitely one where I can play all 3 ways, depending on the opp. I could raise (loose opp or a smaller % of the time with a tight opp), call (what I will do with tighter opps the majority of the time) or fold (what I'd do if the opp is a nit, only playing AK and premium pairs).

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Great!

We now have credited your account with your 3rd bonus and You're doing a fantastic job so far!

Now take some time and using the information you've learned so far evaluate this hand and ask yourself the following questions:

1. Was my starting hand good enough to play from this position?

2. Did I evaluate the strength of my hand postflop?

3. Was my bet-sizing correct?

When at PokerSchoolOnline you are welcome post many hands for discussion in our Hand Review Forum and we encourage you to do so. Here's a video to help you understand Cash Game poker better.



You've still got one bonus to receive.

Step Four

Attend any LIVE TRAINING session here at PokerSchoolOnline. You must actually attend the session to get your bonus.

Please let us know what Live Training session you have attended. NB It must be a live training session that takes place after this post was posted. Past live training sessions do not count.

Let us know the Date/Time and Title of the session you attend and we will check your attendance and credit you with your final bonus. If you make a deposit at this stage you will also receive your final bonus.
