        Great, Thanks

        I check the live training schedule is 15:00 ET. My time zone is GMT +7 so it's tough time to attend the live training , Any alternate way for this ?

              Hi,

              Depending on our reads for the villain in early position..if they are loose, this hand is a easy iso-reraise(isolate that villain with a raise all in' to protect your equity in the pot by getting other players to fold as we do not want to be playing a multi way pot after investing half of our stack). Keep in mind this line is not "default" and should only be used in certain dynamics preferably in late position (real money) and it's not often we will see a villain open raising 50x (fifty times the big blind)

              As for post flop, it is tough to try and extract value without any reads on the villains..let alone not having a made hand..I think just checking it down is optimal here..as the side pot that has been developed is not worth the risk..save bet's for another hand.


              Hope this helps.

              Now we want to get you playing on the real money tables. Next up, and spend some time on this one , study the Poker Basic Course and take the basic assessment quiz at the end of that course.

              Once you have passed this quiz, please let us know and your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours of passing it and notifying us. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion.

              Use this first buy-in to then play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you get your first buy-in and start playing these games and we'll continue on from there.

                    Now, what the next step, sir ?

                      Brilliant!

                      You've done all 3 tasks and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

                      Step Two

                      Use your first buy-in to only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Post one hand that you had difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze it for you.

                      Please watch the following video and answer the question below.



                      List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

                      Then study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

                      So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus.

                      1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer.
                      2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it.
                      3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz.

                      Let us know as soon as you have all 3 tasks complete and we will award you with your next buy-in.

                      Best of Luck!
                      Kind Regards,

                          Hi, I just read the cash game courses and passed the quiz And i answered the question on the video : Question : List 3 reason why a player may want to make a big bet ? Answer : 1. To gain value from very strong hand, it helps a player to maximise the return from the winning hands if a player got a strongest hand. 2. To bluff people off decent hands. 3. To protect again strong draws, if a player afraid his/her hand is vulnerable to draws. It forces opponent to pay more to hit a draw. I played 1/2 NLHE and i curious about this hand : I'm in Small Blind with KJ offsuit, all players in front of me is folded. I just call the BB, and he's checking. The flop is Jc Kh Jh make my hand a Full House. I bet $0.10 and the BB re-raise to $0.20. I re-raise again to $0.60, and he re-raise again to $2.21 force me to push All-in. I just call with remaining $1.84. The turn come Ts and river is 4d. He mucked his hand and i win the $3.59 pot. I'm win the hand but still curious about how to play the hand and need advice I think i just completed all of 3 tasks. What must i do now ? Kind Regards, DoodleJosh

                            Hello, Fantastic! Your second Bankroll Builder bonus is on it's way to you, great job so far. Watch this video that will help you on the cash game tables There are three ways in which you can earn your next bonus. 1) Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus. Let us know if you hit that target 2) If you lose your 2nd bonus at the tables please post the hands where you lost the money with here in this thread. As soon as you post the losing hands we will advise on the next step. 3) If you make a first deposit at PokerStars you will automatically be awarded your remaining bonuses from the Bankroll Builder promotion. Best of luck to you at the tables and we are here to help you should you have any questions. Hand analysis What where your reads on the villain? When it gets folded around to us, blind versus blind I'd raise it to 6c, this hand plays relatively well in a heads up situation. On the flop, we flop what appears to be the 2nd nut full house. Versus a big blind that check their option, it would be safe to check to the villain and extract value that way by allowing them to semi-bluff to the flush/straight or value own them self with Kx. I really wouldn't want to re-raise the villain with such a strong hand, as there is a strong possibility that we could fold out all of their range. Very nice hand and nice pot! By the way, what hand did this villain showdown with? Kind Regards, CannonLee

                              As long as i sit in the table (around 30 minutes), this villain is a loose-aggresive player, so i'm just check (i know, every time someone bet, he always re-raise with huge bet ) And i think that time my KJ offsuit isn't good enough if he's gonna bet/re-raise my hand. And the weird thing is, when i'm All-In, his cards still at face-down position, so i can't see his cards (It's that possible ?? ). Until the river, he's mucked his hand and his cards are still mystery for me. Kind Regards, DoodleJosh
