      Hi Stormpok7609,

      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 each of the 'Getting Started at PokerStars' and 'Bet Sizing' live training sessions. You'll find these sessions daily in the Live Training section.

      Please post back here when you have done both these things and we'll move you on to the next stage.

        Hi John,

        This is a hand that I found interesting. I decided slow play because the player who raised was being very aggressive. What do you thing about that?

        Thanks,

              Hi Stormpok7609! I get 78o in the big blind and get four limpers before me. I'm going to fold this preflop. This is a marginal-at-best hand and I have to play the rest of the hand out of position with an aggressive opp that acted out of character and was passive preflop. If I was in the hand, I would flop the current nuts.... but there are many draws out there that can beat my hand. Due to this, I need to lead out and bet this flop and will do so with a pot-sized bet and be ready to shove any raise. I do not want to take a chance at someone drawing to clubs, QJ or worst case... QJ of clubs. If I don't make the correct flop bet, the opps that are drawing to beat me can get the correct odds to draw at me... which is something that I do not want to do. I only want to slowplay when there is not a single card that could beat me, and here there are a number of cards that could beat me. Playing too many hands, especially from the small blind, is one of the largest chip leaks that many players have. Since I'm out of position for the entire hand, I want to be very selective in what hands I do decide to play from the small blind. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Hi Stormpok7609! Your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours. Remember you can earn up to a total of four buy-ins with this promotion. Use this to then play ONLY the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables only on PokerStars. Playing any other type of game will disqualify you from being able to earn further buy-ins. Post back here when you get your first buy-in and start playing these games, along with a hand that you had problems, or that cost you money, while playing. Also, please attend one of the 'Entering a Cash Game Pot' live training sessions and post back here when you do so. Good luck!umbup: John (JWK24)

                          Hi Stormpok7609, I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to look at this hand for you. Once he has done this we can continue on from there. Raiser umbup:

                            I think this is a very well played hand. Certainly we could raise the flop, or the turn. But I actually agree with calling the turn, I think the hands that we can get to fold with a turn raise we can fold with a river bet just as well. We also get to realize our equity versus those hands that would not have folded to a turn raise. On the river I think a half pot value bet is in order, it just so happens that this player did not have enough of a hand to call this time. You should be very skeptical of a limp-call before the flop that leads on a paired board. Most of the time players have nothing when they do this. But that doesn't mean we want to raise just any hand. Some hands will play better with the advantages of position and good equity. We have both here and we can get another bluff out of him on the river. I would expect him to give up on a lot of rivers should we miss our draw so we should have a profitable river bluff a decent amount of the time. Preflop is of course fine. All in all a well played hand umbup:
