  • Where am i?????

    Hi PSO Admin,

    I've been with Pokerstars for bout 10 years, and with PSO for about 2. Been telling myself that I should be a lot more advanced by now, with a substantial bankroll, instead it's quite the opposite. I'm no more different than when I first found Pokerstars. I'm hoping this program may help me start my bankroll, and consistently manage it. Am I eligible?

        Bankroll Builder first hand to be analyzed I'm just before the button, holding JJ. Two others limp in before me. Seeing this, I raise 10BB plus 1BB for each limper. The button calls, SB folds, BB calls, two limpers fold. Board pairs an undercard plus one overcard. BB goes all-in, I make a min raise to open a side pot but Button folds. Showdown: JcJs versus 5d8c Board turns 2c, rivers 9d. Three 8s win. JJ lose.

              Hi Mr. rayzor! With JJ (or any other hand that I want to raise with), I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 2 limpers, I will raise to 5BB or 1k. I want to keep all of my raises standard so that the opps are continually guessing as to the strength of my hand. Opps that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to their opponents.. something that I want to avoid. The flop brings an overcard and a pair and an opp shoves. While I do have a pair, I'm beat by any Q or 8 and due to this, I need to muck. I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind and since an opp shoving could easily be a card that beats me, I need to muck. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                Excellent! 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 completed and we will award you with your next buy-in. Best of Luck! umbup:

                  Thanks John, I see the light and the error of my ways. My raise was too big, showing the strength of my cards and I forced the issue with a pair that's probably beat. I'll keep it in mind.

                        Hi Mr. rayzor, Freerolls only may be played - do not spend any of your bonus on games other than 1/2 cent full ring tables. To do otherwise will disqualify you from future bonuses. When posting hands here, they must be from ring games only, as cash game strategy differs significantly from tournament play. Good luck at the tables! umbup: Joss

                            BB vs Sb with hi Guys, I've completed the cash games course and watched the videos.The reasons why I would make a big bet is either to protect my hand, to pressure the opps or to bluff them of a decent hand. I also played 1c/2c on real money tables. Here's an example, in this hand, the table was breaking up and I was in the BB with pocket 8s. Did I play this wrong?
