      Hello FreerollFace,

      You are eligible for the Bankroll Builder promotion, good job!

      NB: Bookmark this page so that you'll find it easily in the future

      First Step

      Watch the following video and pay special attention to the tips on retrieving and saving your hand history from PokerStars. This will be important for the rest of your promotional journey.

      After watching this please play some PLAY MONEY FULL-RING (9-Handed) tables at PokerStars and using the Hand Replayer post a hand here in this thread that you have questions about.

      Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.

      Then when you have that done please have a go at the Poker Basic Course and pass the quiz at the end of the course.

      So you have 3 steps to do to begin with and when you have all 3 done we will award you with your first bonus.

      1) Watch the 'Getting Started' video
      2) Post a 'PLAY MONEY' hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer
      3) Pass the Poker Basic course.

      Let us know as soon as you have all 3 steps completed.

      Best of Luck!

        Max value I have completed the tasks u requested. In the hand, Dealt AKo. Guy raises i 3bet 3x his 3x raise for value. Pretty dry and good board for AK top pair top kicker. Put him on a smaller king, good value on flop and shoved for 60% of pot on turn.

          Hi FreerollFace! This promotion is only for the full ring tables, not for 6-max. Once you receive your first bonus, if you play any tables other than 1/2 cent NL FULL RING, you will be ineligible for all future bonuses in this promotion. With AK on the button, I get a standard raise in front of me. I'm going to 3-bet here and the key is the size of it. A standard size is to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise and I'll raise to 1800 in this situation (3X) as there is only one opp in the hand so far. I flop top pair/top kicker and the opp makes an abnormally small bet. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. In a HU pot, a standard bet is 1/2 pot. I'm going to raise here and the key is the sizing. Since a standard bet is 1/2 pot, I'm going to raise by 1/2 pot, to 3450. The turn brings more straight draws into play, so when the opp checks to me, I need to make another standard value bet.. BUT.. 1/2 pot is the majority of my remaining chips, so I need to shove the turn. 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!umbup: John (JWK24)
