Hi Paul,

I completed the Poker Basic Course and I just passed the quiz today. So, I guess I will have my first Bankroll Builder bonus. After that, how can I continue getting more Bankroll Builder Bonus?

Best Regards,

JL

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.

Hi Paul,

This is the link of one of the hands I played on 1/2 cents Real Money and that is a situation that happens frequently and I am not sure how to proceed. What should be the right option when I have trash hand on the big blind and someone already raise before the flop? I think I should call to see the flop as that could maybe improve my hand, but normally that doesn't help a lot. So, do I just fold and lost my bet without look the flop? Just assuming that the person who raised has a better hand? Could be just bluffing? Should I just call or raise on big hands?

Here is the link:




Thanks for your comments.

Best Regards,

Jose L

Hey Jose,

This is a huge leak in your game and it needs to be plugged right now!

Your hand is too weak to defend the blinds here. When defending the blinds do so with good starting hands that you think beats your opponents steal range. Never call in this spot, if you are going to defend the blind you need to do so aggressively so that your opponent will believe that you have a strong hand.

Here's a video that will help you.

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.
