        Hello.

        I attempted to attend one of the getting started sessions, however Adblock or Do Not Track was preventing me from seeing the slides and it by the time I solved it the session was ending.
        I'll try to watch one tomorrow now I've got everything working. Just thought I'd let you know in case things looked strange.

        Thanks.

            Hello,

            I attended a getting started session a few days ago.
            Do any hands I'm not sure on need to be on a full table? I've seen that stated in a couple of other threads.

            Thanks.

              Hi MrGiltrap!

              Please try to play a full table (all 9 players). If someone gets up and it goes down to 8 or 7, that's ok too, but try to play one that is a full table.

                There were only 7 players when this hand occurred, but I think I made such a mess of things that it's worth posting here. I wasn't sure whether to raise or not preflop, and now I'm not sure if I should have not done so or raised by more. I called throughout because I was too busy concentrating on the possibility of a straight, which was unlikely really even though it did happen. At the end I was concentrating so much on the fact I got a straight at the end that I completely missed the possibility of a flush. Looking back at the hand I think I was playing like an idiot. I think I probably should have bailed on the flop.

                  Hi MrGiltrap Preflop with limpers aleady in the pot, I suggest just calling with QJo. It is a prospective hand. With prospective hands, especially suited connectors, we want to be in position and see a flop cheap. We normally miss the flop with these hands, so we don't want to build the pot. As played, calling the flop is fine since you have an open ended straight draw and are getting odds to call. The 8 on the turn is a bad card for you. The board is now paired. So full houses are possible. Moreover, there are now flush draws in diamonds and hearts. This means that only half your outs are good because the red cards may make a flush for a villain. I strongly suggest folding now on the turn. We don't have odds to continue. GL and have fun at the tables! Merry Christmas! Roland GTX

                    Hi MrGiltrap!

                    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, please let us know and 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 play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you get your first buy-in and start playing these games and we'll continue on from there.

                      Hello,

                      I had already passed the quiz shortly after signing up because I'd assumed the "take quiz" button was for the article I was reading, not the whole basic course.

                      Anyway, I have now gone through and read the whole course, so I should now be up to speed on anything I was unsure on before, post flop play being the first thing that springs to mind.

                      Thanks.

                        Hi MrGiltrap!

                        Congrats on passing the quiz. Your first buy-in 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 buy-in to then play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables only on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as you will be able to earn another buy-in 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, please attend the 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section.

                        When you've done all this we will move you onto the next stage.
