Martin is killing me!!!

Wow trying to do the bonus at Martin's Poker. 100% max 600 Euro. 3000rh. 100% max 200 Euro x 2 - 600 rh. All clear concurrently.

Already down almost 200euro, I'm just getting bad beated and unlucky like crazy, been playing on tilt for the last part. Stuff like flopping broadway, and buddy hitting runner runner full house. Or AcJc vs Q5. Flop was AKc5c. All my chips in there, and buddy gets a 5 on the river without me improving? Man I gotta turn around my luck soon!

Poker Team Tournament Winners!

And last night my teamates clinched the league with another superb showing. I believe it was a 1st, 3rd, 4th, 4th, 5th. Good enough for 1st place for this round. So we finished with 3 1sts, 1 3rd, and an 8th in the 5 round league. 51 points, 2nd place wasn't even close. Time for some bigger events now, were ready!

Beats Happen ...

Yesterday our team finished 8th/9 for the PokerRoom Team tourney. I didn't watch any of my teammates play, but from what they told me, each of the early exiters lost when they were at least 2:1 going in. AK vs AJ, KK vs A9 etc. We ended up with a 1st, 3rd, 8th, 8th, 9th for 29pts.

Good news is the teams we wanted to win, won! So right now were still at 36pts, 2nd place has 23 points, 3rd has 21 pts. The lowest we can finish is tied for 2nd, and and guaranteed $. Though anything less than 1st will be a disappointment considering the way we started.

Hey I actually played some Poker this weekend!

Its been a while since I've sat down and played some ring game pokah. Did the following this weekend. Finished off my Gaming Club reload, earn enough stars for the 2 Titan Freerolls (1 curtousy of PokerSourceOnline, qualify for the Paradise million freeroll.

Gaming club finished up $170 after $100 bonus.
Titan up $200 after $30 bonus.
Paradise up $150. Qualified for 2 freerolls

So a nice weekend on the cash tables.

1st paradise freeroll, busted out when my AQ TPTK lost to a flush that somehow called with those odds. Playing the 2nd freeroll as I type.
Party tournies: 3rd in a $30 sng for $60. CPC qualifer knocked out early. QQ vs 33. Caught a 7 for his straight on the river.
Came 4th in a Step Higher tourney, repeat Step 1.
Titan Maui, came in 3rd.

This is how not to play in a Party Step tourney.
4 players left:
EP limps in
I hold JJ and limp in. (Reasoning: next player likes to push on weak entries, has done it numerous times)
SB: surprisingly just limps in.
BB: check

Flop comes 10 high.

SB: check
BB: allin
UTG: allin

I have them both covered by a little, and me being a super pussy tonight decide to fold. BB turns over 10x, UTG turns over A10. WTF was I thinking. Could have knocked both of them out and qualified for the next level. STupid ass me, ended up 3rd = nothing.

Check your mail for an InterCasino cd. Contains the code marvel for a free $10 to play on their marvel casinos. Finished the wr on that with $13, woohoo!

Breakaway Casino busted playing pontoon. For my last bet, I hit a pontoon, and then the dealer hits his pontoon. Thats why I hate RTG.

Absolute Poker Skin Design Contest!

I'm sure everybody complains about the Ugliness of Absolute poker, though they have improved from when they first launched. Now you can change the table skins! Now Absolute has a contest - $500 for the best skin design. Poker Source Online has a contest as well! Winner gets 10k points ($100)

Here is my submission - Absolute skin

Yes I'm not a designer, but no real touchup required!

Finally, my 1st MTT Win!!!

After a year and a half of playing, finally got my first MTT win. Though not my biggest win, this one still feels better. Finally got that damn monkey off my back. I almost blew it too! Played an amazing final table game. Didn't lose a hand before heads up. Made some great laydowns preflop, JJ, 99, both times somebody else had KK. Won all my steals, and all my allins, and didn't require any bad beats to do so.
When it came down to Heads Up I almost blew it! 9to1 chip advantage, but I kept losing to top pair. He had about a 3to1 now, and after some steals got back to pretty much even. Made him put me allin with me holding AK and him KJ. AK held up. On the next hand I finished him off with K high I believe.
This was on, probably the site with the best tourney structures on the net. I guess I'll continue tourneys on that site!

SitnGo roll!

Doing pretty good in my sitngos lately, won 3/5. Unfortunately they were all on lower limits, but at least one goes toward the Titan Maui promotion. The other 2 wins were on a site where I just needed a few more $ to get in a larger tourney. Turned $11 to $33 with ease, score!

Finished up my Bet365 reload, should be done my Inter, Littlewoods, and SuperVegas this week as well.

Got my ass handed to me!

Guess it was bound to happen, haven't had a nice losing ring game day in a while. Last night on Eurobet, lost about $120 playing $50NL and $100NL. These suckers that I was making pretty good $ on finally caught their cards. Got my KK cracked by K5, wtf! AA cracked by KQ. AKs raise and a reraise and still 6 people in the pot, eventually won by 33 on a flopped set.

Action for the week: Eurobet reload (still), Bet365 Nov reload, InterCasino, Littlewoods, Victor Chandler, Poker Blue ring and mtt, BPT mtt.

Taking your time

Last night I played in a MTT, winner gets a WPT seat at the Bellagio. 23 people left, top 20 are in the $ as well, I made a stupid play. Now I knew the one guy likes to make the all-in any position blind steal, and this time I read it correctly, I failed to think it through. I held Axs and was on the SB. I decided that next time he tried that move I would call with any A or pp. What I failed to realize was that, I'm so close to the $, do I really need to make that move yet? Calling would only leave me at a slight favourite at best. Though I was on the lower echelon of chips, in comparison to the blinds I still had time to play. Not thinking things through after playing 2+ hours will hurt you. Now I have to remember that for next time. oh and btw, the guy held J9, and flopped a K high straigh. Not J to complete that straight for me.

I'm a bonehead ...

Go ahead, laugh. Bonehead play of the year, by me of course.

$50NL on "Party Skin" network. AA on BB. Folded to SB, calls. Flop comes J high with 2 spades. SB bets $2, I raise to $6, he calls. Turn is an A. He checks, I check as well. Hopefully he has a J, hoping that he makes 2 pair or better yet trip Js on the river. River comes the 3rd spade. He checks, I bet like $2, he min raises, I just call. He turns over 63s. Man serves me right trying to get fancy! Embarassing as I'm sure a lot of the guys saw my muck cards, lol.

Back to the old Party Network I go.

After complaining about tightness on the "old party" network I find myself back there. This time to clear the Eurobet "SHAW" reload. 50% max $200. 10x. 30 days. I usually wouldn't touch a 10x like this, but the 30 days is nice. I can take my time to clear this, and not have to play a crapload of poker in a short amount of time. So far so good. Playing the $50NL tables. All the $25NL/PL tables were $1/$2 avg pots. Only 1/2 the hands were raking!

Having fun at Harrods Casino. 100% max £50. 20xB. They have some fun versions of Blackjack there. Double exposure (See both of the dealer's cards). The dealer gets the advantage of ties though, except for BJ, you win. BJ surrender where you can surrender at any time. Most of these also have the bonus bet, which I haven't tried. A few other versions as well. Kismet software, same as Red Lounge Casino.

On a side note I think I finally have the £ sign memorized. No more character map! Alt 0163 just in case I forget. What was the Euro sign again? doh!

Re-Raise bigger you sissy! - Paradise

As ] (two pair, aces and fives)
critmike lost $3 (folded)
BLUEBRONC didn't bet (folded)
Kochies didn't bet
stone70 didn't bet (folded)

1st of all, why were there so many people seeing this flop at 6x BB after 2 EP raises? Though a min re-raise should have isolated myself and ChiLLen, it didn't and it cost him a nice amount of change. That re-reraise I put in post flop should have warned him against the set, but I guess its still a tough fold to make. I can't guarantee I could make that fold. I knew there was at least 1 flush draw, surprised there was only 1 chaser though.

Finished Empire reload with a nice profit. Avg pot = $2 on the NL25 games, lol. Oh well, good enough to get a rake in, but terrible for actually making any $. Luckily I had a few good pots. My last orbit I had to make 4 raked hands to get to 500. I couldn't do it, had to complete one more BB!! Man tight as my anus there.

On the Casino side, finished up Victor Chandler for a small profit, Finished littlewoods for a small profit, started up Harrods Casino and so far so good. 100% up to £50, 20xB. Will putup a full review later.

Another KK MTT loss and funny Empire hand!

Well another MTT and another KK crippling. 30something players left, I'm in about 10th place. EP raises 3x, I reraise 4x his bet, folded around, he calls. Flop comes Qxx. He checks, I put in 1/2 the pot (just about his stack size), he goes allin and I call the rest. Turns over QQ, and I'm left with 1500 odd chips. Still about 10x BB, but that was the turning point in this tourney.

Funny hand on Empire, I thought all the Party players left?

Video Games - Poker on the backburner?

Yesterday the only online video game series that I have played religously came out, Socom 3. Army/navy type game where you utilize teamwork and tactics to win. Part 2 of this took a backseat when I started playing more online poker, so I find it funny that the roles are now being reversed again. I'll finish my Empire reload, maybe play some Paradise, a couple tournies this month, Casino monthlies, and that will be it for gambling for Oct, unless a new PSO promo comes out soon! This game gets pretty addictive, and so far its pretty badass!

Party Split

So Party finally did it and split from their skins. Very curious to see how they rank now in terms of players. Don't know how accurate it is, but stats are still showing it as having double the # of active players than #2 (Poker Stars).

Played on the old network (Empire) over the weekend. Pots are smaller, hands are not being raked as frequently as before. Still a good place to play though, especially for me clearing a nice $100 5x bonus that Empire through into my inactive account! Cashed out of Eurobet. Had a rakeback account there, but only use that account to play SnGs. Don't imagine they will be as juicy anymore.

Finished the Bet365 reload as well. Small profit + the $100 bonus, so I enjoyed it. Hopefully they do it next month as well.

Casino wise, halfway through the Victor Chandler and Littlewoods bonuses. So far so good. Not too many new casino offers popping up, might have to do some other reloads like Will Hill.

While catching up on season 1 episodes of Lost, noticed I still had Noble Poker installed on my laptop. Forgot I left $1.xx in account, so just played a short $1 turbo 6 player sng. Came in 3rd, so no $. What I still don't get, so many AA, KK limpers. I guess thats why they play $1 tournies.

InterCasino, KK in tournies

For the 2nd month in a row, InterCasino was very good for me. Finished the WR +$250. I love this monthly bonus. 100% up to $90 WR= $90 * 25 = $2250 They implemented a bonus tracker last month, so now I can see exactly how far I am off of the wr. Even played a little Bejeweled this month, which can't be +$EV! :)

For the 4th time in the past 5 tournies, I have gone out or been severly crippled with KK. I've been playing it aggressively preflop, but never seems to holdup. By calling and then pushing postflop without an A, I'm pretty sure I may have taken down a couple of these, but I still don't think thats the right move. Gonna stick with my Allin and pray I don't run into As. This might change if I'm on the bubble.

Doubt there will be much poker playing this long weekend, turkey time. Some juicy freerolls though I might be missing, Empire $10k, Bet365 $30k, Hollywood BPT free entry makeup.

Tuesday, October 04, 2005


Various updates:

Bet365 - Best reload right now. 5x. Struggling a bit on prima. Have decided not to play so many tables at one time! Worked last night just playing 2 tables. Love the donkies who call all the way to the river with an A rag, and missing everything but the A river. A simple "nh" by myself, and the rest of their $ is easy taking. Did it to a couple of guys last night.

Paradise - Played there for about an hr. Trying to get another Million $ freeroll entry.

InterCasino - About 2/3 through the best monthly bonus, up $200+

Absolute - Played the Poker News Daily Freeroll. Need to learn to use All-In more frequently in these freerolls when I think I have the best hand. People will call.

Sept 29: Damn Internet

Cable and Internet down for about 3 hours yesterday. Was going to play in a tourney at 9pm, so that didn't work out. Luckily Hollywood Poker servers crashed so nothing happened there either. :)

Lost £25 yesterday at BetandGame. Blackjack was taken off their site. Played Pai Gow and Baccarat. Bet on the banker, banker sucked. Never got the bonus from them as they got bombarded from a bunch of "Bonus Abusers" Somehow they revoked all withdrawals made, and took the $ back from player's neteller accounts. Wow, this will be interesting.

Pokerstars tourney looks pretty cool though!

Sept 28: Poker Rewards & Collusion grrr...

Just finished up my Poker Rewards initial deposit bonus last night. 2000 raked hands, for a $210 bonus. Thats on top of the $150 I made and the PSO bonus. So not too shabby. What I love about Prima - Multitabling. I love the mini-view (took a bit to get used to). Was able to 8-table at ease. Though I probably could have played better with playing less tables, I think my $/hr this way was > extra $ I would have made or saved.

Later on I played one of those Rounders Sit-N-Go's where the top 2 winners of each level move on to the next level. Was doing all right, until some blantant collusion. Guys were so stupid they were even talking about it in chat! "I have a straight, fold" So the other guy folds, and a straight is indeed shown. One dude was revealing his cards almost every hand they played together! Reported and hopefully they get the boot, and I get my buyin refunded.

"But poker is not gambling, it's a game of skill if you're good" Shut Up, only those who want others to think they know what they're talking about say that. Poker is gambling, plain and simple, and I love it! :) Mix some skill in it, and it's all good!

My first online poker experience was in May 2004 though Party Poker courtesy of PokerSourceOnline. I didn't really want to play online poker, all I wanted was a free chipset! I struggled a bit, lost $20, cashed out, received my chipset within the week. Score!! What a promo, $20 for a chipset, which at that time were $100+.

I didn't play again until one of PSO's next promos in August: a nice poker table top through Gaming Club to go along with my chipset. Came out of there with a nice profit, and my free gift.

The rest is history, $1000+ free gifts from PSO, bankroll is now $12k+, and everything from now on will be in writing.
