          Great that you watched the video. Now you know how to save your hand histories for both real and play money games! 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:

                Hi Pavelg18! With pocket 10's from UTG, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Since there are no limpers, I'll raise to 3BB or 30. There is now a call, then an abnormally large raise (to 15X the previous bet where a standard raise would be to 3X or 120), then a call of this large bet. It now folds back to me and here is where a read on the opponents will come into play. If the opps are tight opponents, I'm very easily up against best case 4 overcards, if not an overpair. If this is the situation, then I'm going to fold, as all 3 of us are going to have about an even chance to win. I'd rather save my chips for a situaiton where I know that I'm ahead. If the opps are loose on the other hand, then I'm going to be ahead in the hand, BUT, I'm still going to lose the majority of the time (against two opps playing the top 20% of hands, I'll win about 40% of the time). Due to this, while I may be ahead, I'm going to be a favorite to LOSE the hand against two opponents (and will be even worse odds if villain 2 calls), so I'm going to muck here and look for a better spot, where I can be the favorite to win the hand. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    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. For beginners it's not advised to play short handed tables, so if 2/3 seats become empty it's a good idea to stand up also. As you become better at ranging opponents and playing an aggressive game you will feel more comfortable playing short handed tables but for now try to stick to the full ones. Good luck!
