          Hello GZ-frost, Thank you for that and we can see that you have attended. The next step is to indeed post some hands for review but NOT tournaments hands, remember that the Bankroll Builder promo is for cash game play only. Next up play some Play Money Fullring (9-Handed) tables. Make sure that the tables are full, that is, no empty seats. All Play Money tables will be designated as 'Fun' tables in the PokerStars client. Here's a short video about how to find the Play Money tables at PokerStars.
          Once you encounter a hand that has left you facing a difficult decision or one that cost you a lot of chips save the hand history and post it here using the Hand Replayer. Here's a short video on how to use the Hand Replayer.
          Once you post a hand from one of the Play Money 'Fun' FullRing tables we will analyse it for you and we can continue on from there. Raiser umbup:

            Great, thanks a lot I've tried to put the video on here, but I'm having one problem. I saved my hand in the Hand Replayer and created a link with the link type: Forum/Blog. I tried copying this:
            Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
            to the manage attachments section but it won't upload. Any advice Thanks

              Lol nevermind that error.

              Rookie mistake there

              Yeah anways the video. As you can see dealt AA. I felt I was lucky to end up winning this hand. I was against more people than I wanted to be and what can I do differently to make sure I still get paid off, but reduce the chances of someone hitting two pair or one of their draws?

              Thanks a lot again

                This upload is perfect but it's from a tournament ... Please post a hand from a full ring play money 'fun' table as described above. Raiser umbup:

                  Sorry about that, it was a zoom game Here is a fun game:
                  Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
                  Here, I'm not sure what my turn bet should be. Should I try to take down the pot with so many scare cards out there or is this just a bad river? I find this happens quite a bit with low two pair

                    sorry about this not being a full ring, but other table I found were just all-in fests. This one had two people bust the previous hand

                      No worries, it's perfect. I'll ask one of the hand analysers to look at this for you and offer some feedback. Once he does this we can continue on from there. Raiser umbup:

                        Hi GZ-frost! 35s from UTG is not a strong enough hand to be playing, so I'm going to immediately muck it. When out of position, I want to only be playing better hands. When I do play a hand, I also want to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper, not to min-raise. On the turn, if I was in the hand, I'd make a pot-sized value bet because there are 3 opps in the hand. if there was only one opp, then I'd bet 1/2 pot. This way, if someone has a single club or a straight draw, they are making a negative play by calling. The river is a problem card, because anyone that has an A or any other pair just outdrew me. Due to this, I want to get to showdown as cheaply as possible and will check and call a small bet or fold to a larger bet. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                            Hi,

                            I read the poker basics course and ended up passing the test. I would like to know where to go from here. Any help?

                            Thanks for everything

                              Hi GZ-frost, 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:
