  • Bankroll Builder - Make me a better better please !

    Just started a week ago, taken part in several school tourneys, completed a few quizes, and learned loads already. Want to get as many freebies as I can, and improve betting sizes, to boost good hands and minimise losses.

            I am sure I've done it, and get an error when trying to take it again. I have been in touch with support and will post when they have sorted it out or I have retaken the test.

              OK. It was the first assessment one I had passed. I had to fill out account details before I could take the quiz!

              I have taken and passed the Basic Quiz now, although I didnt complete all of the questions, as it seemed to be stuck loading for probably 25% of the time on 2 or 3 questions even after refreshing the page !!

              Hopefully that wont happen again in any future quizes !

                Brilliant!


                You've passed the basic test and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!


                Step Two


                The Poker Basics test was easy right? Well, there's a lot more to learn on the road to becoming a profitable poker player.
                Now study the Cash Game course and once you think you have it mastered 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.

                Let us know as soon as you have passed the Cash Game Quiz and we will award you with your next buy-in.

                      I played the tables, was doing well, had my third pair of aces, the first two I bet 3BB and gained the blinds. I thought I would slow play these ones. Overjoyed at the ace on the flop and dismayed by the diamonds. Thinking what could the possibility that he has 2 diamonds? He bet confidently, he had folded to reraises before. So when he raised the turn I thought he had the flush, but couldnt lay down the aces !! I know I should have, but .... So the question was, whats the best way to play it in hindsight (excluding the 3BB initial bet). Check and call ? When would I lay it down ? In the future how do I spot this earlier and how can I lay down bigg trips ?

                        Great!


                        We now have credited your account with your 3rd bonus and You're doing a fantastic job so far!

                        Now take some time and using the information you've learned so far evaluate this hand and ask yourself the following questions:

                        1. Was my starting hand good enough to play from this position?

                        2. Did I evaluate the strength of my hand postflop?

                        3. Was my bet-sizing correct?

                        When at PokerSchoolOnline you are welcome post many hands for discussion in our Hand Review Forum and we encourage you to do so. Here's a video to help you understand Cash Game poker better.
