      Hi Phaze679,

      You are eligible for the Bankroll Builder promotion, good job!

      NB: Bookmark this page so that you'll find it easily in the future

      First Step

      Watch the following video and pay special attention to the tips on retrieving and saving your hand history from PokerStars. This will be important for the rest of your promotional journey.

      After wacthing this please play some PLAY MONEY FULL-RING (9-Handed) tables at PokerStars and using the Hand Replayer post a hand here in this thread that you have questions about.

      Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.

      Then when you have that done please have a go at the Poker Basics Course and pass the quiz at the end of the course.
      So you have 3 steps to do to begin with and when you have all 3 done we will award you with your first bonus.

      1) Watch the 'Getting Started' video
      2) Post a 'PLAY MONEY' hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer
      3) Pass the Poker Basic course.

      Let us know as soon as you have all 3 steps completed.

      Best of Luck!

        Bankroll builder session feedback Not sure about the raise on the flop? But since they all checked i assumed it would be safer to try and win the pot right there.

          Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.
          He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

          In future play ONLY full ring games (9 seats), otherwise you can be disqualified from the Bankroll Builder program.

          Take care,

            Hi Phaze679! Please make sure that you are playing full ring tables only in the future, as for this promotion, they are the only tables that are allowed. Playing others can make you ineligible to earn future bonuses. With pocket 10's from the button, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 2 limpers, I'll raise to 5BB or 1000. The flop misses me and when it checks to me, here is where I need to have a read on my opps. The question is, would any of them fold or are they all calling stations that will never fold? If they would fold non-made hands, then I'll make a 3/4 pot c-bet here (2550). If there were less opps, then I could bet less, but with three opps, I want to give anyone drawing to beat me the wrong odds to do so. If all of the opps are going to call, then I'm going to check behind for pot control and re-evaluate on the turn. My plan for the rest of the hand is that if I'm raised on the flop, I'll fold and if anyone calls, then I'll check the turn and river unless my hand improves. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  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!
