          Hi B!indsniper, We can see that you did attend the session yesterday. Did you find it useful? Did you learn something from it that you didn't know before? Next Step Next up 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:

            The information from the getting started session about saving all hand history to my computer was quite useful amongst the other advice provided during the session. Below is a hand I had trouble with recently, I did end up winning the pot but only by pairing my Jack on the river when he had be beat. How should I have played this hand? folded to his raise? checked on the flop? Regards Blindsniper

              Hi b!ind,

              With just under 10bb's I would shove preflop, you don't have enough chips to raise a standard amount and fold later in the hand. So your decision now is to either fold immediately or shove to maximize the chance everyone else folds to the pressure. AJo is quite marginal in early position but with your short stack and the blinds coming, beggars can't be choosers, this is good enough to push and pray imo.

                  Hi,

                  It appears that I have completed the basic poker skills quiz successfully prior to starting the bankroll builder promotion and it wont let me redo the quiz.

                  It has also been longer than 24 hours and I haven't received my first buy in yet.

                  Could you please review the situation and advise what the next step is.


                  Thanks

                    Hi B!indsniper, 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. Good luck! Raiser umbup:

                      Hi, Thanks for the first buy in, Here are a few hands from while I was playing at a 1/2 full ring money table: 1) I imagine that folding in the big blind with 8/9 off suit was the right call here, what about if it was 8/9 suited? (I also wanted to include a hand with all players present) 2) My opponent didn't seem to be representing a strong hand or top pair, so I felt comfortable I had the strongest hand. Could I have played this hand differently to maximise my winnings? 3) (even though it shows there are people are missing, this was because some players sitting out this particular hand) I was about to leave the table in the small blind and no one had called or raised, I raised in order to try and take the blinds, however was called and eventually raised with a pot sized bet, which I folded to, did I play this hand correctly? Thanks

                        Hi B!nd, I would fold this yes. Suited it would be worth a speculation call if your opponents are loose and prone to paying off big with just 1 pair hands, so that when we do hit a big hand we can have some optimism about actually getting paid. Just the straight equity isn't enough though, we need the flush potential too in order to consider it imo. Folding is never a bad option here regardless.

                          I think you did about as good as you can here. Calling preflop is fine. When the opponent calls your flop bet on a totally dry board (no draws) we have to assume he's doing it with some kind of pair, and a weak king is certainly a concern. I don't mind check/folding the turn. When he fails to bet the turn it increases the chance he was calling you with just a 6 or some other pair, no problem with making a token value bet on the river (a small bet of 1/3rd the pot seems about right) which will get paid off more frequently by weak pairs.

                            Preflop raise sizing is a bit big, when you're stealing in the blinds just raise your standard amount. I would follow through with a continuation bet on the flop, even though we missed, the opponent will have missed quite a bit too and we can sometimes take it down with a c-bet... including getting some better hands to fold like KT, A9, etc. As played I think you do have to fold once he bets, the steal failed and we gave up, no sense getting stubborn imo.
