  • NZbro's bankroll builder

    Hi, im relitively new to pokerstars. I won the open skill league tournament a couple of months ago (late august). That got me $5 which i lost almost instantly. I won another private freeroll for $3 which ive turned into about $7.40 in 6-max tables. I would like to think that im a decent player although i know that i could do with a little bit of help in how to play certain hands. This promotion is what ive been wairing for! Am i eligible for the bankroll builder promotion?
    Thanks, NZbro286

    Hi Bro Welcomeumbup: It sounds to me like you will be eligible-as long as you have not made a deposit, and you haven't taken any quizzes. But wait for Admin who will be along soon to say hi etc. and show you around! GL at the tables Broumbup: If you do qualify, let us know how you get along with it, maybe start a thread on it? Weasel

      Yes, you are eligible and welcome to the Bankroll Builder. To get you started we'd like you to play some play money games (In the PokerStars lobby go to Hold'em > Play Money > No Limit) and using the Hand Replayer please post a hand that you have found difficult here in this thread. Doing this will ensure that you know how to use the hand replayer tool and if you've any questions on it just ask us. Also please attend one of the 'Getting Started at PokerStars' live training sessions. You'll find these sessions daily in the Live Training section. Post back here when you have done both these things and we'll move you on to the next stage. Raiser umbup:

                  Hi NZbro286, Great! Now that you've learned how to use the hand replayer and attended the 'Getting Started' class it's time to earn your first $2. You can earn this by studying the Poker Basics course and passing the Basic Assessment quiz. Take your time studying this course as it will make it easier to pass the quiz. Once you have passed it your $2 will be credited to your account within 24 hours of passing it. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion. Please post back here when you get your first $2 and we'll continue from there. Raiser umbup:

                          Great, you got your first $2 from the promotion. Please attend one of the 'Bet Sizing' live training sessions and ask plenty of questions such as 'what should be the correct bet size to enter the pot? what are good starting hands etc. Think about these 3 basic's before deciding if you should enter a pot. 1. My position at the table? 2. Is my starting hand good enough? 3. If I do decide to play this hand what should my bet size be? If you've any doubts about these make sure you ask the live trainer questions in the 'Bet Sizing' class. Let me know when you've attended the 'Bet Sizing' session and we'll move on from there.

                              Perfect, You've now got your first $2 and should have a good understanding of the basics. Use your first $2 to play some 1/2 cent real money games on PokerStars. Do not play higher buy-ins at the moment. Find some hands that caused you problems or left you in a tricky spot and post them here for review. Once you've done this we can continue on, great job so far! Raiser umbup:
