          Hi zPainz, Perfect, we can see you on the list of attendees, did you find the session useful? Next next play some 9-handed full-ring play money tables. Make sure the tables have no empty seats. Find a hand that caused you difficulty or cost you chips and using the hand replayer post it here in the Forum. Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.
          Once you've posted your hand we will analyse it for you and then continue on from there. Raiser umbup:

              Hi zPainz! The first thing that I'd recommend to you is to never join a table early and pay an extra big blind. Wait for the blinds. Paying the extra blind continually will be a problem for your bankroll. With K9s, while I could make a standard raise (3BB+1BB for each limper, which with 4 limpers is to 70), I'm going to check and hope to get a free flop. Depending on my reads of the opp's play, I could raise to 70 or check. I see the flop 5-handed and flop top 2 pair. When the opps check to me, due to the number of opps in the hand, I'd normally make a pot-sized bet (530), BUT, since this is over 1/2 my stack, I'm shoving the flop. I'm pot-committed and I don't want to let any of the opps see an overcard hit on the turn or river that could beat me without putting their chips in first. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  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. Raiser umbup:

                      Hi zPainz, You've passed the basics quiz, congrats on that! Your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours. Use this first buy-in to then play ONLY the 1/2 cent full ring real money tables only on PokerStars. Playing any other game format will disqualify you from being able to obtain further buy-ins through this promotion. 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 with this buy-in. Also, please attend an 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This should help too. Good luck! Raiser umbup:

                        So i was playing some hands today. Was up $0.60 before getting in some bad spots. Now I'm down to $0.78 so I can't really join anymore tables. This was my last hand. What's next?

Use the time you are there wisely, for example, prepare some questions that you can ask the Live Trainer while you are attending.
