    I think I qualify. I have been playing here for a while and don't seem to be getting anywhere. I have a lot to learn and the opportunity to earn a bankroll may be just the incentive I need.

        Good Day.

        I have completed "getting started", bet sizing and cash basics in today's live training sessions. Very interesting. And now, the daily game is about to start.

        Cheers,

          Hi wrami, Just the 'Getting Started' session for now, you will need to attend the 'Bet Sizing' and 'Cash Basics' later in the promotion. 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:

            PSO Hand replayer

            The hand I selected during play earlier today will not store. I have watched the tutorial at least three times and I have made several attempts to store the hand without success.When I select Quick Save, the storing progress window pops up and appears to be working but no progress is indicated. The hand information I selected has been pasted below.

            Regards

              Hi,

              Some of the hand history here is missing. At the bottom of the history there should be a part that says

              ***Summary***

              and this needs to be included along with the rest of the history.

              Please try again with another hand and if you continue to have difficultly please attend the 'Getting Started' session again and the live trainer will guide you through it.

                hand replayer Thank you for the help. Here is the code: I probably should not have played the hand but something appealled so I limped in hoping to see a flop. The flop came up 8 7 7 and I didn't want to give away my hand so I checked. So did everyone else. The J came up on the turn and I didn't want to check again so I bet 20 The river was the 6 and my thinking was that that I couldn't bet too big if I wanted to try to build the pot so I bet 60% to see what might happen. When I was raised to 700 my thought was that if I went all in I might cause my opponent to fold but if I went slightly better that twice the bet, miguelito044 might think I was trying to scare him off and call These were my thoughts while playing this hand. The big question in my mind is: Should I have bet the flop? and if so: How much? I'm looking forward to your analysis. Thanks warmi

                  Hi wrami Nice pot! In a real money game there normally won't be so many limpers and I would recommend just folding this hand preflop. Marginal hands like this just don't win often enough to be profitable. Plus, we often lose a lot in situation where we flop a pair and lose to a better kicker. As played, you got a very good flop. Notice serveral points though. Firstly, there are flush draws with the spades, and straight draws with the 78. Secondly, you flopped trips with two sevens on the board. This is not as strong as flopping a set when you are holding a pocket pair. Thirdly, we want to build the pot as soon as possible with our strong hands. This allows us to build it even more on the later streets. All of these are strong reasons to bet the flop, especially the first. Betting about 75% of the pot, perhaps about 60 cents would be my recommendation. This is enough that anyone chasing a draw is making a mistake by calling. Furthermore, there are seven other players in the hand. It is very likely that at least one wants to continue with the hand. Betting on the turn was smart. I would have bet about 50% of the pot myself. Now you have a full house, so the flush and straight outs can,t beat you. Furthermore, you want anyone chasing to get their money in now while they still believe they have outs. Nice job getting all in on the river. You took down a nice pot! Remember, build the pot early with your strong hands. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                        Hi wrami, 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:

                            Hi, Sure .. Open the PokerStars client and go to: 'Hold'em' > 'No Limit' > 'All' and then filter the stakes until you find $0.01/$0.02. If you are not sure you can always attend the 'Getting Started' session again and ask the trainer to show you while you are there. Also check out >>THIS VIDEO<< Remember, your next step is to play the Full Ring (9-handed) 1/2 cent tables and post a hand that you had difficulty with or cost you money here using the hand replayer. Once you do this we can continue on from there. Raiser umbup:
