            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:

              Well there was this hand which I was the big blind and I had A J off suit. Someone min-raised before me and I thought I can isolate with someone who has a pair and play heads up with them and hopefully try to catch a pair or so. Should I have bet on the flop or check, because I see it too common that people will usually hope some sort of AK or AQ that didn't hit on the flop. So that is why I tried to represent A10 which didn't work. Was it a bad play? Thanks

                Hello, Thanks for posting this hand. 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. Once the hand has been analysed we can continue on from there. Raiser umbup:

                  Hi Bropham! With AJ from the BB, there is a min raise, then a bunch of callers. If I think that any of the opps could fold here (which I'd like to have happen, as AJ plays much better against fewer opps), then I'll make a standard raise, which here due to the large number of callers will be a pot-sized raise to 33 for me. If the table is loaded with calling stations that will not fold, then I'll just call and see the flop. I see a 4-way flop that totally misses me. In most cases, especially if I'm heads-up or maybe against 2 opps, I'll make a c-bet here (1/2 pot for HU, 2/3 pot for 2 opps)... BUT.. with 3 opps, I'm going to check since c-bets work much better against fewer opponents. Against 3 opps, if I did make a c-bet, I'd need to bet 3/4 pot (71) as any bet lower than this can give the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me (if I'm not beat already). I want to be betting when I expect to gain chips from my bet, not to be betting where I expect to lose chips. The turn once again totally misses me and I'm going to check here and hope to improve my hand on the river. The river is another total blank and I'm going to check/fold here. There isn't much that I can beat and due to that, I don't want to put any more chips into the pot. If I did make a river bet, since there are 2 opps, I'd need to make a bet of 2/3 pot to make my bet be belivable as a value bet and with absolutely nothing, I'm not willing to do so. When the opp raises, since I can't beat anything, it's an easy muck for me, as if I call, I can't win. If I wanted to represent AT here, I'd need to bet 3/4 pot on the flop, 3/4 pot again on the turn and 2/3 pot on the river.... and bluffing this many chips is not going to be a profitable situation, so I do not want to do it into a multi-way pot. In the majority of the cases in the play money and microstakes games, it's best not to bluff, because there are too many players that will continue calling and not fold. 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!

                          I just have a question before I proceed the cash game; do I have to use all of that $2 buy-in or I can put in the min buy-in of the table?

                            It's entirely up to you but personally I would recommend buying in for the full $2. Don't worry if you lose the buy-in, just post the hand where you lost the money with here in this thread if that happens and we will award you another after a few more simple steps. Raiser umbup:

                              I started the hand with K J off suit and since I was UTG+1, I thought I should just call and hopefully hit the flop. 4 players to the flop Flop came blank for me 3-7-A rainbow and everybody checks on the flop. Turn came Q which means now I have a straight draw. 2 players check and I decided to bet 3/4 of the pot to try to build the pot and big blind called. River came a J, which gave me a pair. The BB bet 3/5 of the pot and I thought to myself maybe he has the straight because he check the flop and called the turn in hope the price isn't too big and he manage to hit. I decided to fold because I thought the bet was a bit too big for me to call with a bluff catcher hand, is it the right move? Thanks
