          Apologies.

          Sorry for the way my previous post turned out. I tried doing it the way it showed on the video but I couldn't find some icons etc. I also don't use a mouse which makes it hard to right/left click I have to use 'File' up top to save. Thanks.

            If you zoom out on your page ('ctrl' and the '-') you will see the icons You MUST post the hand using the hand relayer before we can continue with the promotion. Raiser umbup:

              zoomed out but nothing

              Hi.
              I did what you said and zoomed out but there was nothing else on my screen. I'm using a mac. Does that make a difference?
              Thanks.

                Yes, I don't think the hand replayer works well with Mac. Have you also a desktop? Please post the hand history ID number here for the hand you need analysed. Cheers, Raiser umbup:

                          basic quiz

                          Hi,

                          I've already done the basic quiz, at least if it is the quiz that gets me the free ticket.
                          Thanks.

                            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!

                              Step 2 Hi. 3 reasons for a big bet: - To put your opponent under pressure. - To bluff off decent hands, to scare them off. - To gain value for the pot from strong (monster) hands. I played several hands on 1c/2c table Nash II. One of these hands was #102931615154. I know I should be using the rep layer but as I am using a mac it doesn't work for me (I had this problem earlier. I will let you know when I have done the cash game quiz. Thanks. Theos20 umbup:
