            Hi befe01! This promotion is ONLY for FULL RING cash games. The strategy for these is different from tournament strategy. Playing anything other than 1/2 cent FULL RING games once you receive a bonus will make you INELIGIBLE to earn any future bonuses in this promotion! Without knowing what type of tourney this is, this can be played totally different too. Cash tourneys have different strategy from satellites and both types are totally different than a league game. In a standard tourney (non-league, non-satellite), I'm going to make a standard open to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper, which is my standard for this blind level. However, a raise to 1000 is over 1/3 of my stack, which means that if I play the hand, I'm pot-committed. Since I'm pot-committed, I'm open-shoving JJ here. If the hand is from a different type of format, then the way that I go about it could be totally different and a cash ring game strategy would be totally different from any of the tourney types. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Hey there, Sure no problem. In the PokerStars client search for the following tabs. 1. Hold'em 2. No Limit 3. Micro 4. Hold'em Ring Game Filter 5. Set 'Max Players' to '9 to 10 (Full Ring)' 6. Set 'Stakes' to $0.01/$0.02 That's it! I've added an image as an illustration Good luck at the tables! Raiser umbup:

                        - to put a lot of pressure on the opponents
                        - to bluff people off decent hands
                        - to protect against strong draws
