    Hi there,

    I've signed up to PokerSchoolOnline and have been reading the courses I was wondering if I qualify for the bankroll builder promotion?

    Can anyone help?

          Brilliant, now that you have watched the video you now know how to save hand histories from 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 ive got a couple of hands the first one i made a complete mess of and the second i won but i was probably to risky and silly to have done. first hand: on this hand i was just calling hoping for a set and then planned to fold if nothing hit but then when every one bet i just thought id set mine as if it did hit it would be a big chip up at the end when second 9 came i should have def folded but id seen villain 6 playing really low connectors and thought he maybe hit 2-4 he had a win with a 2-3 earlier when two 3s hit the board so i took a gamble had this not been play chips im pretty sure id definitely have folded on the flop. second hand: on this hand i was kinda just semi bluffing then trying to represent i had a 9 on the turn (if i had been raised id have folded) on the river it had checked to me so i was certain nobody had 7-8 but looking back i think i prob bet wrong here as an A-10 might have called down i think any over pairs would have raised by now, i thought a pot size bet would have scared off A-10 but maybe i should have shoved or been more sensible and checked.

                Thanks for posting these hands for review. I have asked one of the hand analysers to take a look at it for you and offer some feedback. He should do this later today and once he does we can continue on from there. Cheers, Raiser umbup:

                  Hi jmacdz! With 77 and a number of limpers in front of me, I'll gladly call behind and try to setmine. I miss the flop completely and there is a bet of 30 and 3 callers. To call, it would be 30 into a pot of 162 (18.5%). I have two outs, which would be worth 4% equity due to the rule of 2 and 4, however, I'm not even sure the 7 of spades is an out, as it could complete a flush. Due to this, I'd need to put 18.5% into the pot when my hand is only worth 2%... so I need to fold right here. With two overcards on the board, I do not want to put another chip into this pot unless I improve. Someone most likely has me beat, so I do not want to bet or call. I want to be putting my chips in when I've got the best hand. With KTs from the HJ, I'm going to make a standard raise here, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 4 limpers, I'll bet 7BB or 14. I need to raise, as I want to try to lessen the field, as my hand will play much better with less opps in the pot. I flop top pair/second kicker and when it folds to me, I'm going to make a pot-sized bet due to there being 8 opps in the hand. This is why I would want to make a standard raise preflop, as I now have no clue whether I have the best hand or not. The turn pairs the board and an opp makes a min bet (which makes no sense at all because bets post-flop should be based on the size of the pot, not the BB). When it gets to me, I'm going to raise for two reasons. For value and to try to get some info about the opp's hands. Once again, due to the large number of opps, I'll need to make a pot-sized raise to 82. The river should be a blank, unless the opp has 78 or had 6x with a pair. When it checks to me, I'm going to make a standard 1/2 pot value bet (80). The keys for this hand are to make a standard raise preflop to try to lessen the field, then to make standard bets post flop. Most of the time, if an opp has a 9, they will tell you by making a large opening bet or by raising. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    hi thanks for the hand analysis was extremely informative and helpful ive recently read the pot odds section of the cash games course then re-read and re-read until it stuck lol

                    what should my next step be ive passed the Poker Basics test should i do the cash game test? i was also able to attend the getting started, bet sizing and cash basics live sessions on saturday ive also been watching live training videos by XFLIXX which have been very helpful and enjoyable.

                    edit:
                    i just noticed some of the xflixx training videos require VPP points are they obtained by playing games or something different?

                          No problem, sometimes doing the steps before you are asked will delay the system. Check back tomorrow and we will advise on the next step. Cheers Raiser umbup:
