    Good Afternoon,

    Do I qualify for the bankroll builder promotion?

    I thought I had done and passed the Poker Basics assessment but it's not showing the course as finished and will not let me take the quiz again.

        Hi Stangg187, You are eligible for the Bankroll Builder promotion, good job! You can play in the Open League but if you get any Bankroll Builder bonuses you must use them to play 1/2 cent cash games only, not tournaments. Hot Tip#1 : Bookmark this page so that you'll find it easily in the future First Step First up you need to attend the 'Getting Started' live training session. The next one available for you time zone is on Saturday, February 9th and you can find it here:
        Getting Started
        Let me know as soon as you have attended this session. Cheers, Raiser umbup:

            Hi Stangg187, We can see that you did attend the session today. Did you find it useful? Did you learn something from it that you didn't know before? Just a note though that it was only the 'Getting Started' session that you needed to attend, you will have to attend the other sessions later in the promotion. 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:

              I didn't learn anything new from the content of the session itself but Dave did point me towards some of his other videos covering some aspects of the little green book that I wanted expanding.

                I wasn't sure that I made the right decisions here, I like suited connecters for calling a pre flop raise, when no one bet the flop I valued my low pair and figured I could induce a fold on the turn (I got there in the end despite the calls but was this the right train of thought?)

                  Hi Stangg187! Is this the correct hand? The text talks about suited connectors and a pair, but the hand is AJ that misses a flop. With AJ from the BB, I'm either going to raise or fold here since I'm out of position. If the opps are playing very tight, I'd muck. Otherwise, I'll make a standard raise to 3X the previous raise. Since the button bet 100, I'll raise to 300. I want to try to thin the field some, as the rest of the hand will be much easier to play when out of position against less opponents. The 5-way flop totally misses me and without the lead in the hand (since I didn't raise preflop), I'll check and hope that everyone else checks so that I can see a free turn card. The turn is another miss for me. Since everyone checked the flop, I'm going to take a shot to win the pot here and will bet 1/2 pot (250). If I get raised, I'll muck. If I get called, then I'm not putting another chip into the pot unless my hand improves. The river misses me too and when the opp checks, I'll check behind and hope that the opp missed too. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    I bet the pot because smaller bets were getting called a lot more earlier on. Apologies this is the hand I meant to seek advice on based on my comments(I should point out as well than generally I like to play looser with suited connectors, I'm not sure if that is going to cost me more money than it makes in the long run but I normally feel comfortable extending my range and winning bigger pots if they flop good):

                      Hi Stangg187 Calling such a large preflop raise with 43s is definately going to cost you money in the long run. I would strongly suggest being more careful with hands like this. 43s is a speculative hand. As played, you risked your entire stack on bottom pair. It worked out for you here. At real money tables this is going to very quickly cost you a lot of money. With speculative hands such as suited connectors, smallish pocket pairs and Axs, we want to flop a set or a strong draw to a straight or flush. With these hands we normally want three conditions to be in place to make them worth while. Firstly, you want to see the flop relatively cheap. Secondly, you want to have several players in the hand. Thirdly, you should preferably have decent position. With these hands you want to be very careful about flopping a pair. Far too often you will end up with the second best hand. This is especially true if you have A2s for example. Don't get carried away if you flop top pair. Implied odds can make chasing a straight or flush draw, for example if stacks are deep. But don't overdo it With speculative hands, you normally will be folding on the flop. However , when you do flop a set or a strong draw, you can often win large pots. GL and have fun at the tables!

                              I think I messed up a bit here, I definitely didn't put the villain on a set. I guess I should have bailed a lot earlier but I wanted to see what he had to get a handle on his range.
