Great job on passing the quiz, you'll get your 1st bonus within 24 hours.

When you get your bonus please play some 1/2 cent tables 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.

Thank you for posting the hand.

Next Bonus

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!

To get your 3rd bonus please earn 10 VPP's or more playing ring games on PokerStars.

Starting now, when you reach 10 or more VPP's while playing real money cash games on PokerStars we will credit you with your 3rd bonus.

Let me know when you earn 10 VPP's

So, if I understand correctly:
Pot = Rake.
If pot is $0.40 (on $0.01/$0.02 table) Rake is $0.40. 4 VPP awarded to the table?
If my contribution to this pot is $0.02, I will recieve 0.20 VPP.
If -"- is $0.20, I will recieve 2 VPP.
Right?
But here is the problem, I've spent $0.20 through couple of hands and recieved only 0.05 VPP.
Help

Hi again,

Unfortnately you won't be credited with another bonus unless you earn the required VPP.

You should you the last bonus we gave you to play 1/2c real money cash game tables on PokerStars.

Thanks,
Raiser

No, Pot is NOT the same as rake.

The pot is the amount of money on the table that the player can win.

The rake is a small percentage that the 'house' takes from each pot that is won from cash game tables.

Here's a link to how rake is calculated on PokerStars:
