    Hi JPrates31, You are eligible for the Bank Roll Builder promo!umbup: The next thing that you will need to do is to attend one of the 'Getting Started With Pokerstars' live training sessions. Please let me know after you have attended this session. Also, please practice on the play money NL 9-max tables (full ring) and please post a hand that you were not sure about using the hand replayer. Here is a video tutorial on how to use the hand replayer.

        Getting Started

        Well, I did attend a Getting Started Live Training on Tuesday with Chris "ChewMe1", but since there were some technical problems, I'll tell you when I have attended the Getting Started Training

          Hi JPrates31, Yes, that would be great thanks, please let me know when you have attended. Also the hand you posted was 3-handed. If you could play some full play money tables, 9-handed, and post a hand from one of them it would be great, cheers. Raiser umbup:

            Was this slow play in order? I was being eaten alive by the blinds, so i guessed i had to collect as many chips as possible

              Thanks for posting. I'll ask one of the Hand Analysers to review this for you and he should do this within the next 24 hours. Once he does this we can continue on from there. Raiser umbup:

                  By the way, do you also want me to see the Bet Sizing and cash basics?

                      Hi JPrates31! Tourney hands and cash hands need to be played a totally different way (especially if it's in a league game). I'm guessing this is a tourney hand, as you mentioned the blinds eating at your stack. Here's what I'd do in each situation. If this is a cash game OR a cash tourney, with AA, I want to raise, as my hand plays much better against less opponents. The previous raise was to 600 and my raise would need to be to between 3X this amount (1800) and a pot-sized raise (2200). Since both of these values are well over 1/3 my stack, I'm pot committed! Due to this, I'm instantly shoving my 3605 chips here and making any opp that wants to call me pay the maximum before they can see any cards on the board that could beat me. If this is a league game, then I'm probably not into positive points, especially at the end part of the month. Due to this, I need to play the hand much, much more cautious. In this situaiton, I'm going to raise to 3X the opp's bet (1800) and hope to see the flop with chips behind. If one or two opps shove over me, I'm calling. If more than 2 do, it will depend on how close I am to a league pay-level as to whether I will call or muck. If I would lose a sizable amount of $$ by playing and losing the hand in the monthly standings, then I'm mucking here. If not, then I'd call regardless of the number that raise me all-in. The flop gives me top set and when the opp makes a very small bet in relation to the pot, I need to raise to price out any straight draws and would normally raise to 1/2 pot.. however, since this is almost all my chips, I'll shove the flop. The one thing that I do not want to do in ANY situation here is to slowplay AA. All slowplaying will accomplish here is to give the opps the correct odds to draw to beat me, which is something that I never want to do with a premium hand. If I don't bet enough to give the opps the wrong odds to stay and they do outdraw me... then it's my own fault that my hand gets beat. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                          Just watched half the Getting Started live training, it was about saving hand history. I use it quite a lot, so it was just a little bit boring.

                            Hi JPrates31, Really sorry for boring you but it's important to attend all these sessions. Did you have any questions you could have asked the trainer? That's what he's there for, use the time there wisely, it's the best way to learn. Now we want to 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 buy-in 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 buy-in to then only play the 1/2 cent fullring real money tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you pass the quiz, get your first buy-in and start playing these games and we'll continue on from there. If you have already passed the Poker Basic Quiz please let us know.

                              I have already passed the basic assessment.
                              And I asked one or two questions on the training session, if I had to be there I might as well take advantage of it. But normally I attend the MTT training sessions.
