      Hi BoKurairo, 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

        I have watched the 'Getting Started'. I'm not sure about my bet on turn, and river(useless?).

          Hi BoKurairo! With AQs and a limper before me, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper, so I'll bet 40. I see the flop 5-ways and flop a multitude of outs, straight, flush, even a royal. When it's checked to me here, I'm going to make a 1/2 pot value bet (102 chips). I want to start to build a pot and to give me the correct odds to draw. I see the turn with 2 opps and miss. Now I need to be much more cautious, as I do NOT have a made hand and also just lost half of my hand's equity, as there is only 1 card to go. Due to this, I'm going to check here and hope that the opps check behind so that I can see a free river card. If the opps do make a small bet, I'll call, but I'll need to re-evaluate if they make a larger bet to see if I have the correct odds to draw or need to fold. The river is another K, which is what most opps that call bets on the flop and turn here will have. Also, due to the stack sizes, the opp should NEVER fold their last 290 chips here, as there are way too many chips in the pot not to call. They only need to be right 13% of the time to breakeven. Due to this, I'm going to check/call on the river. I'm not folding for the same reason if they bet (only have to be right 13% of the time to breakeven). Tip for you... at the micro-stakes level, do NOT try to bluff the opps very often. They don't know how to fold and/or won't fold almost all the time. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    Hi Bo!

                    You need to post a hand or two that you had problems with or lost the buy-in with so that they can be analyzed and you can learn from them. This needs to be done before the next step.

                          Hi BoKurairo Calling preflop is fine here. You have position, suited connectors and multiple opponents in the hand. Let's look at the flop. The board shows 9 10 K with two clubs. Yes, you have an open-ended straight draw, but your cards are at the bottom end. Plus, you don't have clubs. It is important to recognize the relative strength of you hand in these spots. There are no good outs for you here. Even if a 6 were to come on the turn, one of the opponents may be holding JQ for a better straight. In spots like this we have to check-fold our hand. You might be ok check-calling smallish bets, but this is not a spot to risk your whole stack. The good thing is that you seem to already understand that this wasn't the best flop for you. Recognizing our mistakes, then learning from them is the way forward I hope this helps! GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                            Hi BoKurairo!

                            It's time to now attend the Cash Basics live training session.

                            Also, study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

                            Once you've passed the quiz and attended the live training session, post back here and we'll continue.
