    Hello, I am interested at the Bankroll Builder scheme. I have received some in-game cash from an advertiser but I have never deposited cash by myself. It would be great if you can tell me whether I qualify and if so I'm definitely more than happy to put in some effort. Thank you and I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

        Hello and thanks for the reply. For this hand, was it not reasonable to raise with KQo? Also, when is it reasonable to raise tricky combinations like KQ/KJ/QJ? I have already passed the test. Thanks

          Hi, Hand Analysis Did you have any specific reads on the villain? Our hand will play fairly well versus a range of medium to low pocket pairs 99 to 55 but could also be an underdog versus AJs AQ AK, JJ QQ KK AA. I would have just flat called out of the big blind and try to make a hand as our hand can flop decent a top pair that coupled with the possibility of flopping equity to a straight draw or flush draw. When the villain 4bet jams all in for about 20 big blinds, I'd fold this hand and pick a better spot..general population tendencies (when readless) for 4betting are weighted towards these ranges AJs AQ AK, JJ QQ KK AA and there are quite a few combos that have me dominated. Hope this helps. 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!

              Thanks for getting back to me. Was the raise on the river too low? Answer to the question Pressurize / Bluffing / Gaining value I have already passed the test.

                Hi, Hand Analysis Did you have any specific reads on this villain, I'd fold this hand facing an under the gun opening, generally raises from that position are weighted towards strong holdings AA KK QQ JJ AK AQ AJs. Post flop as a general rule of thumb, I'd bet 1/2 to 3/4 pot size for value, anything less than these amounts correctly prices marginal holdings to strong draws to chase. I'm not saying that this hand should of used this sizing, I would have took a pot control line of check call, as there are several combos of Ax that could have us beat. As for the river we have decent pot odds to bluff catch and we really need specific reads to be calling in this spot. Nice pot. CannonLee
