      Hi shynleigh355, 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, you can be practicing on the play money NL ring tables and please post a hand that you were not sure about, using the hand replayer. Here's a short video on how to use the Hand Replayer

          Hi shynleigh355! With QJ in position, I'd raise or fold this preflop here, mostly raise unless there are a number of aggressive opps at the table that still have to act. I will raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper, so with 3 limpers I will raise to 6BB or 1200. This will hopefully thin the field and will have me in control of the action on the flop. The flop gives me trips, but there is also a flush and many straight draws. Here is why I want to raise preflop. If there are only one, two or three opps, I can make a bet that can have them make a negative play to call, but with a table full of opps, I can't do that. Beacuae of this, I will make a pot-sized bet (1800). If there were less opps, I'd bet less (1/2 pot). The turn completes the diamond flush and a straight. If I had raised preflop and made a pot sized bet on the flop, I'm checking the turn for pot control. With the way the hand has played out, I'll bet 1/2 pot and re-evaluate on the river. When I'm raised, it's going to be from a straight or flush, so I'm going to muck and look for a better situation. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                Hi shynleigh355!

                Nice try... but you may want to see this forum post, as the training TODAY was cancelled, so there is no way that you attended and participated in it. Please attend the session, as we cannot move forward until you do so.

                  no man, you got me wrong, i'm not kidding, i'm not talking about today, i'm talking about January 2th, the point is that i'm in a different country, I really saw the "Getting started session 2/1/2013 at 18 pm (ET)", i registered my self to participate, i dont know if it's possible, but you can check out.
                  I am sorry if that was the impression, but cause of the difference between the hour here and the hour of the post, there's the confusion.

                    The Jan 2nd one with Gareth WAS the one that was cancelled (as were all of the Jan 2nd trainings). You could register for it, but it never happened. I also do get a list of everyone that attends all of the sessions each and every day.

                    Please attend and participate in the live training session, as it's a mandatory item to proceed to the next step.

Thanks man, i'm gonna try this getting started session, january 3th at 21:00 (ET). Sorry for any problems i may have caused, thanks
