            Hi bread climp! This promotion is only for FULL RING games. Please in the future, play the 9 player full ring tables. With QQ (or any other hand that I'm going to play), I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 3 limpers, I will raise to 6BB or 120. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, so that the opps are continually guessing as to the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent. I also do not want to bet too little, or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to outdraw me... which I want to avoid. I see a 5-way flop with an overcard. Since I raised preflop, I need to make a c-bet here. With 4+ opps in the pot, I need to make a pot sized bet of 260. I cannot bet less than this due to possibly giving the opp odds. When I get raised on the flop, since any player with a K has me beat, I need to muck to the raise. I want to be getting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead or if I have the correct odds to draw. I do not want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm most likely behind. The keys here are bet sizes and to muck to the raise on the flop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                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! flophitter umbup:

                  I forgot about this for a while but I've now made a first deposit. Do I get whatever is left of the $8 or whatever it was? Or do I still have to do the rest of this?
