      I guess i am a quick learner.
      Checked out some of the other threads in this forum.

      So i already watched both videos and finished the first quiz.
      The thing that bothers me now: In my PS-client i dont have any option to upload a hand. i see the handnumbers but they are no clickable link. What do i do wrong here?

        Hi Khorgor!

        first off, we're not even sure you're eligible or not yet. Secondly, please do NOT do anything ahead of time. It will only make this take much longer, as you're going to have to redo everything.

                  Thank you - but there is a question AGAIN.
                  I know what you are talking about. But when i look up requests in the PS lobby, the option for hand history is greyed out. I cant activate anything about that. And yes, i am logged in whit my account there.

                    OK, you will need to email support@pokerstars.com and ask them why this is? Let us know how you get on. Raiser umbup:

                        Ok, So now i got all things running i am playing around with the replay tool a bit. I think that particular hand was pretty easy to play and selfexplanatory. Play at the table was ... well ... loose agressive and thats quite an understatement. low limit playmoney and everyone is a maniac i guess. In the previous hand villain4 took out 3 players with a multiway all in - best hand was AJo So, i am in the big blind, hand is limped around to me so i can just check with my 62o. bottom pair without kicker, so well ... nothing to exciting. sb checks to me so i dont give him any credit, dont see a Q or J in his hand, so i bet 2/3 of the pot. at least i had hit the board and i want answers and no free card. UTG calls, sb folds, as expected. UTG doesnt have a Q or J either, else he would have raised with my small bet. At least thats what i would expect - he played pretty straight forward so far without trying to trap at all. Turn is a 9, board is full rainbow, so no flush at all. still i have bottom pair but i guess UTG gives me at least the J or even the Q, so i bet out again, not to scared of the 9. Bet is 8 in a pot of 14. UTG calls. River is an A. Now, thats tricky. ALl the time i was representing Q or J. So the A is scary to me. I still prefer to be the better and bet 14 in a pot of 30. If he raises i do have to give him the ace, i think. He folds, so i win the pot. What did he think i have? AQ? AJ? i am sure he believed i had Q or J. So in that case, the A must have been a good spot to bluff - did i scare him with the bet? He should have raised me, right? And what should i have done then? Believe him and throw away? Or pay him and hope he doesnt have an ace? I think i would have paid, i dont think he had an ace. He would have played it more straightforward before the flop. Most likely he had 10x, hoping for the straight that didnt hit. That would explain him paying of till the river and throwing it away when missing it.

                          Hi, Hand Analysis We bet for 3 reasons, 1.) As a bluff 2.) For value 3.) To collect dead money Which of the three would you say was done in the hand replay? I think your line is fine at a short handed table, it could potentially set up a bluffy table image at minimal cost and eventually when you do have the goods the villains will be more inclined to hero call. I'm not looking to get called on the river so I'd make my sizing big 3/4 pot+, we have really thin show down value and the villain is sitting deep enough to make a hero call. From the villain point of view they have put us on a flopped two pairumbup: Keep in mind although bluffing is an important attribute for a well rounded poker player to have, it's something that will not be particularly effective at the 0.01/0.02c full ring NLHE games. I'd focus on playing medium strength to strong hands in position (value hands) when the times comes for real money play. 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 [x] COMPLETE 3) Pass the Poker Basic course. Let us know as soon as you have all 3 steps completed. Best of Luck! Kind regards, CannonLee

                            Good evening, i watched all the videos available for me and passed the basic test already. I think i am done with all so far.

                            Oh and as a reply to your analysis:
                            i only played that hand because i was able to see the flop for free.
                            When hitting a pair on the flop with the first acting player checking to me, i do bet, just to get an answer from them both so i see where i stand. if anyone raises me, i fold and run for the woods. The way the hand worked out i actually never felt like i was bluffing. I did feel like being ahead after the flop.

                              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.
