    Hi SHowardPKR, You are eligible for the Bankroll Builder promotion and can earn up to $8 while learning the fundamentals of the game with PokerSchoolOnline. 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:

        Great job SHowardPKR, Now I want you to have a go at copy and pasting this hand history into the Hand Replayer and posting it here in this thread. You'll find instructions on how to use the hand replayer HERE. Post the hand in here and attend one of the 'Getting Started at PokerStars training sessions. Once you've done these two things we'll move you on to the next stage and award you your first $2. Raiser umbup:

              Brilliant, your doing a great job! One more step before we get you playing on the real money tables. Next up, and spend some time on this one , study the Poker Basic Course and take the basic assessment quiz at the end of that course. Once you have passed this quiz your first $2 will be credited into your account within 24 hours of passing it. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion. Use this first $2 to then play the 1/2 cent real money tables on PokerStars. Post back here when you get your first $2 and start playing these games and we'll continue on from there. Raiser umbup:

                  Excellent! Now that you have passed this quiz your first $2 will be credited into your account within 24 hours. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion. Use this first $2 to then play the 1/2 cent real money tables only on PokerStars. Do not play higher buy-ins than this until instructed to do so. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as we will credit you with another $2 should this happen. Use all that you have learned so far to try some real money games (1/2 cent tables). Post any hands that you have difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyse them for you. Also, attend both the 'Bet Sizing' and 'Entering a Cash Game Pot' live training sessions. These sessions are found daily in the Live Training section. When you've done all this we will move you onto the next stage. Well done on the progress so far! umbup: Raiser umbup:
