      Hello MDMCSU99,

      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 Basic 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

        Having trouble getting the video to play.

        I cannot get the video to play. Is there another area on the forum to watch it?

          Hi MDMCSU99,

          I just tested the videos and there working for me.

          What are you using at the moment, is it a PC or a mobile device, mac?

          For the Bankroll Builder promotion a desktop is advised.

          Cheers,

          Raiser

            Have a laptop, and it should work, maybe I just don't have the right program loaded.

              Hi MDMCSU99!

              My guess is that you may need to update your flash player. This can be done at www.adobe.com.

              Let me know if this fixes it.

                Hand from Freeroll Tournement

                [replay hand_id=437301 type=ps title_id=2 showControls=1 themePath=table_PS_560x386.jpg lang=en gameEntity=0 hash=CEAFA6EFFE]


                I am in the villain 4 position. Didn't seem like there was much to do at this point. A8 clubs with a flop with 5c, 6d, 10c. At this point, one club wins the hand, no pairs on the board, and any straight possibility is beaten by a flush. Finally, I am sitting with the A, and no possibility of a straight flush. Seems like there wasn't much else to do.

                Also, passed the basic poker test

                  Hi MDMCSU99!

                  I'll be happy to help with the hand, BUT, this promotion is only for FULL RING cash games. Playing any cash talbes or tourneys other than full ring 1/2 cent NL games after you receive a bonus from this promotion will disqualify you from being able to earn further bonuses.

                  Cash game strategy is also different from tourney strategy, so what works and needs to be applied to one will not necessarily apply to the other.

                  With A8s on the button, there is an abnormally large raise and then a call of it. A standard raise for the initial raiser would be to 3BB or 150. Holding a hand with some potential, but is extremely marginal, I need to muck this preflop. A large raise from early position SHOULD only be AK, maybe AQs, or a mid/large pocket pair and all of these hands have my A8 crushed. Also, their bet is over 1/3 of my chips, which means that I'm pot-committed. Due to this, I only have 2 plays here, to shove or fold and A8s is nowhere near strong enough to shove into an abnormally large raise and a call of it.

                  Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

                    Brilliant MDMCSU99!

                    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!
