        I've watched the videos but I have no chips to play on Play Money table because I'd played that earlier and had lost all my chips
        Can I play on another freeroll tables, such as PokerSchool Open League or Hubble's NL?

          No, only FUN Play Money full-ring tables. Play Money chips are automatically reloaded to your PokerStars account every hour Tournament hands do not count for this promotion as it's a Cash Game promotion only. Cheers, Raiser umbup:

            Thanks for reply! I've really got 1000 chips and could play in PLAY MONEY tournament. So, 1. I've watched the video. 2. I played in the tournament but I think my all-in was a bit unjustified. So, that's it. 3. I passed a quiz with an 82% Success Rate. I think I've done with my challenge

                Hi strelbitski! Congrats on passing the quiz! I'll analyse the hand in post #6.

                Firstly, I notice that this is a tournament hand. The bankroll builder promotion is designed to help you learn cash games, where the blinds are fixed at one level, in preparation for you playing real money games with blinds of 1c/2c. Tournaments require a different strategy, so please stay away from tourneys for the duration of this promo. Nevertheless, I'll look at the hand.

                You're sitting with a stack of 1320 and the big blind is at 50, so you're not desperate yet, as you have 26 big blinds. There is a lot of action in front of you, with a limp, a minraise and an all in shove. This is a clear fold. ATs is a nice speculative hand, but not something worth calling off 26bb with. It's losing to all pocket pairs, and is dominated by better aces (AJ, AQ, AK). You can fold and pick a better spot, because there's no need to take a gamble. You'll need to exercise some patience if you want to make money in the long run, so bear that in mind when you next sit at a table.

                Hope this helps!

                Cheers,

                  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:

                      Okay, I've done with that tasks 1. I played the 1/2 cent full ring table and here is my hand replay. I think I made a good decision because I played only against one opponent and got Three of a kind on a flop. 2. I watched the video and here is the answer. Players may want to make big bets: - to increase their profit in case of having very strong hands; - to put a lot of pressure or when bluffing; - to protect themselves against strong draws and to force opponents for fold. 3. The Cash Game Course was more sophisticated and I passed it from the fourth effort. So, I'm waiting for the response. Thanks.

                          Hi strelbitski Interesting hand! Normally if you are facing a 3-bet and you are out of position, I would recommend folding JJ. Here the situation is a bit different due to stack sizes and the action. Had nobody 3-bet, I would recommend just calling preflop and reevaluating on the flop. Yet, the short stack all in puts a lot of extra money in the pot without creating too much risk for you. Folding is still a safe option. However, if you decide to play the hand, then I would recommend moving all in preflop. The idea is to get the original raiser to fold so that you can face the short stack heads up. Calling as you did is dangerous for the same reason. The original raiser may decide to move all in trying to get you to fold. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                              Roland GTX, thx for your advice. It means I need play more agressive.

                              HokyPokyToo, I have a question. I have two undeclared deposits from IntelliPoker:



                              Are they connected with this promo? I'm a bit scared about that.

                              Nevertheless, I will continue the promo. Hope it will be lucky for me
                              Thanks to all.
