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 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.

Hi Royalraise,

I have two questions for this hand:

1. Should I have raised more pre-flop or was the 3 big blinds enough?
2. Did I do the right thing by folding on the turn? My hand wasn't anything special and there were overcards out there + the opportunity for the flush. (I feel like I did the correct thing here).

Thanks!

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.

I have just checked my account and do not see the $2.00 credit. That is what the final reward is supposed to be, correct?

Hi Joss,

I've waited 24+ hours and still do not see the bonus in my account. I haven't had this problem with any of the other bonuses before. Did something go wrong maybe?

Thanks,
Ryan

Hi ryan0728,

Our system is showing that you were now credited with all of your Bankroll Builder bonuses.

You can check this yourself by going to 'Cashier' > 'History' in the PokerStars client and check history for the last 30 days.

Hello,

First off thanks for trying to resolve this!



I did go back 60 days and it shows 4 credits of $2.00. But I didn't complete the last stage of the program until July. 21 And I only received 3 credits in the last 60 days for completing the first three stages of the program. So I don't know where the error is here



It says I received my final bonus on the 18th of June, which I clearly did not complete until July 21.

Thanks again!
Ryan
