    Hi limuas, 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 full 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

      Any live training will do or there is some specific training that I need to attend.

          JWK24, Wanted your views on both these hands. The first one though I won I am not sure I played it right. It was too many chips behind a bad hand and situation. Let me know. The second one with pair of queens, wanted to know if the reraise pre flop was the right play. Limuas

            Hi Limuas!

            That one will not work. It specifically has to be Getting Started. While other trainings are good to go to, they will not count for this promotion.

              Hi Limuas! It's better to be playing at full tables if you can, that way you don't have to pay the blinds as often. With KQ on the button, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With no limpers, I'll raise to 60. The bigstack opp now makes an abnormally large raise to 620. while KQ is a hand with potential, I'm not going to call this raise and will muck. I want to get my chips in against a player like this when I have the best hand, so that they can double me up. If it was AK or AQ, I'd re-raise and shove preflop, but with only KQ, I'll muck and look for a better situation. I also do not want to call this bet because even if I did hit a K or Q on the flop, I have no clue whether I'm ahead or behind. With QQ, I'm also going to make a standard raise (3BB+1BB for each limper). With 3 limpers, I'll raise to 6BB or 120. The hand now turns into poker bingo?! If this was a tourney, I'd have mucked, but if it is a loose cash table, I'm going to go with my category 1 hand and shove. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                Thanks JWK24 for the hand analysis. It will go a long way in helping me get better at the game.

                On the Getting Started Training, I have registered one for Sat but these live trainings are not in my time zone and I have browsed this site myself and am aware of how it works and the stuff it has.

                Can an alternate training or course be suggested instead, unless it is absolute necessary to attend that one.

                I continue to practice playing and will continue to post challenging hands.

                Limuas.

                  Hi limuas!

                  Since the training doesn't work for your timezone, please watch a recorded one of it here.

                    Thanks,

                    The recording of the training was useful and I watched it. I have been playing and did post my challenging hands too.


                    Let me know what next or am I already eligible for the first bankroll.

                          John, How do you think I played this hand. It was a flop which could be bluffed by the opponent and the bet size was also reflecting that. With that do you think I played this incorrectly. Limuas

                              Congrats on passing the quiz. Your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion.

                              Use this first buy-in to then only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as you will be able to earn another buy-in should this happen.

                              Use all that you have learned so far to try some real money games (1/2 cent tables). Post any hands that you have difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze them for you.

                              Also, please attend the 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This session can be found in the Live Training section.

                              Please let me know when you receive the buy-in and attend the training session.
