        I'm having trouble with my hand replayer! I did everything the same as in this video and it won't work. I copyed my last hand and went to hand replayer and pasted last hand there, then clicked on read data and nothing happened. Now i'm not sure if I did something wrong or is it some mistake in system?

          What language have you got your PokerStars client set too, is it English? The hand-replayer will only read hands in English Raiser umbup:

            Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
            About this hand... I had Kh and 4c and raised to 3BB. One of the Villains re raised to 270... I called hoping to hit top pair with King. That did not happen but I got top pair 4... After i already invested around 30% of my play money in this hand I wanted to get back what was mine and raised all in. 2 other Villains folded and I earned around 500 play money with this raise. Did I do something wrong or not, I don't know, I would appreciate ur oppinion. Thanks.

                Hi demeter1994! The main issue with this hand is preflop. K4o is too weak to open with and definately too weak to call a huge 3bet with. You risked as you said, 30% of your stack on a random hand that is not even ranked in the top half of all hands! This is a recipe for disaster. Your hand has very little postflop potential. No straight possibilities, nor flush possibilities. Flopping a 4 will rarely be top pair. Worse, if you flop a K and get action, you run a very real risk of being up against an opponent with a K but a better kicker than yours. Also, you get 3bet in this hand. We need a much stronger hand to call a 3b than we do to open with. You have position which is good, but I would probably want AQs or JJ+ to continue with the hand. Try to be patient and wait for stronger starting hands. Here is a link to a blog I wrote about starting hands and postflop potential. http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/blo...with-this-hand NOTE: you are on a 6-Max table here. Please stick to 9 man Full Ring tables. Firstly, they are much easier to learn on and allow for good, tight play. Secondly, playing anything other than Full Ring can make you ineligible for the remainder of you bankroll builder buyins... GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                          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.

                          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.

                            This is one of the hands that makes a player mad. I know it's not a 9 man table, but I wanted to try my luck at this table also. So I had As Ah in my hand, and as any other poker player I was happy about it. I wanted to take it slow, get as much money as I can from other players so I raised to 3BB only. One of the Villains called. Flop came out and there was 10c 3c 5d. An avarage flop for me I think. After the flop I raised to 3BB again and Villain called. Turn card was 2d. Not that good card for me because of straight draw, but I hoped that he did not get a straight and raised again only this time doubled the raise, 6BB. Villain again called. I hoped he had top pair, and he did, but river changed it all. Villain got second pair, and I lost. So I was wondering, should I have done something different or is it just my bad luck? Thanks demeter1994

                              Here is this hand from 9 man table. As you can see I had two aces this time too. Only this time I won. I raised to 3BB before the flop and 1 Villain called. Flop came out 9c Jc 3d. This time I was a little more aggressive and raised to around 8BB after the flop. Villain folded and I won. Again I would appriciate your oppinion.
