You could make a lot of money with very little investment here at PokerSchoolOnline. Want to know more?

Before I start I'll point out that this applies to new members only that haven't deposited yet at PokerStars.

For new members PokerSchoolOnline have recently introduced some extremely popular promotions to help members that are new to poker learn the game in a relaxed and enjoyable way.

The Bankroll Builder promotion applies to new members that haven't deposited yet and during the promotion PokerSchoolOnline will give them some starting buy-ins for following the tasks set out by their instructor correctly.

The 1000 FPP Promotion applies to members that haven't created a PokerStars acccount yet. Simply create your PokerStars account using the marketing code 'PokerSchool1000', make a first deposit and earn 250 FPP's after they sign-up with PokerSchoolOnline to automatically release your 1000 FPP bonus.

These FPP's can be used to buy cool stuff in the PokerStars VIP store or you could use them to play FPP tournaments and turn those FPP's into cash.

The First Time Deposit Promotion is a PokerStar promotion with will reward you with 100% of your deposit up to a maximum of $600

But wait, Stop The Press!

What if a new member could combine these two promotions to get the maximum value out of them?

Here's Raiser's suggestion!

Step 1. Create your PokerStars account using the marketing code found HERE. Don't deposit straight away.

Step 2. Take on the Bankroll Builder challenge found HERE. See the promotion through until you receive all four buy-ins from the promotion totalling $8.

Step 3. Once you've completed Step 2 make that first deposit using the First Time Deposit Bonus Code found HERE. For the purpose of ths blog I'll suggest depositing $22 and I’ll explain why below. Then play and earn 250 FPP's to release your 1000 FPP bonus.

Now let's take a look at what you can do with all you've earned so far.

For your 1000 FPP's

Use them to play real money Tournaments, in the PokerStars software go to -> Tourney -> Freeroll -> Search "FPP", you'll find a selection of Daily Tournaments with a buyin of 10 or 20 FPPs and a Prize Pool of $500 or $1,000.

Using your 1000 FPP Bonus you would have 100 Buyins for 10 FPP Tournaments allowing you the chance to win a share of $50,000 in prizes.

Head over to the Forum post ‘What Would I Do With 1000 FPP’s to see how other members are using theirs. Remember that 1000 FPP’s is equivalent to $10 in real money

For Your Bankroll Builder Buy-ins

When you successfully complete the Bankroll Builder promotion you will have received four buy-ins valuing $8. For this amount I’d only recommend playing the 2NL real money cash tables.

So what have we got so far?

Well we’ve $8 from the Bankroll Builder, FPP’s worth $10 and we’ve made a deposit of $22 as per my suggestion above. Just a suggestion though, you can deposit whatever you wish, it’s just for the purpose of what we’re going to talk about next.

To play $0.01/$0.02 Full Ring No Limit Hold’em as a Serious Player, I’d recommend you have at least 20 Buy-ins. The buy-in at this level is $2 so the bankroll you’d require is at least $40.

By depositing $22 and adding to the other Promotions you’ll have the required $40 bankroll plus a pending bonus of $22 for a full total bankroll of $62.

Starting with the correct bankroll and learning the best poker strategies via our courses, live training and forums will give you a much better chance of moving up the levels whilst improving your game.
