        Bankroll Builder - Session Feedback My hole cards were 8h Ah. The flop was 8d 6d 6h. Having a pair of 8, I raised from 2 to 4 to gather information on whether any opponent has a set of 6. There were re-raises which I called. On the turn, 8s was dealt giving me a set of 8. I then went all-in. Is this correct play? Any player could have a full house. Please advise. Regards

            Hi, Hand Analysis With an 80bb stack depth and multiple limpers ahead of us I'm looking to isolate one of the two limpers, in order for me to acheive this outcome I will need to make my pre-flop raise sizing large enough to squeeze out the small and big blind..so I'd make my sizing 3x the big blind + 1 bb for each limper..to make matters even sweeter we will have a positional advantage post flop! Post flop, there are several draws present (flush + straight combos) and our hand has a decent equity advantage versus that range, so I'd elect to raise 3/4 pot for value (and for information) as we mind as well get the value now because there are many turn cards that will either hurt our course of action or rather make the opponent feel gun shy and not put bets in. On the turn, this is a snap call! There is only one combo that has us beat at the moment pocket 3's and we will most likely split with all ranges of 8x 94% of the time! Nice pot! Please have a go at the Poker Basic Course and pass the quiz at the end of the course. Let me know once you have completed this step and I will advance to the next stage of your training!(real money poker)umbup: Kind regards, CannonLee

                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!

                  Bankroll Builder Session Feedback Should I have folded with AJ hand? If I had gone ahead, I would have lost. However under normal circumstances, should I fold? Please advise. List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet: 1. Put a lot of pressure on opponents. 2. Bluff people off decent hands 3. To gain value from very strong hands. I have completed the 3 steps and passed the cash game quiz. Please advise. Kind regards

                    Hand Analysis This hand is okay to be opening for a raise from UTG (under the gun) but when 3 and 4 bets ahead of us ensues this is a lay down (fold). Here is why, facing MP re-raises their range could easily be weighted towards Ax that have us out kicked and mid to premium pocket pairs, our hand is just to vulnerable in this situation as we will be at a positional disadvantage also from an equity stand point 60/40 to 70/30+. Good fold! Did you have reads on these villains? 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. Kind regards, CannonLee
