August 29, 2008 0
Okay, I will explain a little about them and which one is best for you.

Free Poker Bankrolls
These are best for beginners to intermediate players who want to play but do not want to invest with their own money.

How they work -> You get free money, than you must reach cashout restriction. Some Pokerrooms do not have cashout restrictions such as Free $10 at SunPoker. Usually, its easy to meet the requirements to cashout.

3 Best Free Bankroll Sites
1)BankrollMob is by far the best free money poker site I have found. They only accept people from these countries. They have exclusive offers that no other site has and they get a new offer about every month. They also have special features like $1000 Raffle, Mob Safe and Mob Points. To read my BRM review click here.

2)YourPokerCash is one of the biggest free poker money site on the net. The best thing about this site is the offers. They have some of the best free no deposit bonuses you can't find anywhere else. To read my YPC review click here
3)PokerSourceOnline is not the best for free bankrolls but they have some unique bankrolls you can't get anywhere else and they have a lot of pokergifts.

Deposit Bonuses
These are for intermediate to advanced poker players. I don't suggest beginners to deposit. VC Poker - 300% up to $600 is the hottest deposit bonus around. Plus, they give you $10+$25 to try the site out first. Pokerstars has a nice deposit Bonus too and is the biggest Pokerroom on the net, more than double the players than 2nd biggest which is Full Tilt. Pokerstars, Deposit $50, earn 500 FPP point and get $50 Free Use Bonus Code First2008.

Free Poker GiftsSimilar to Deposit Bonus but you get the deposit bonus plus you get a gift too. These are the best kind of bonuses around. This is the best value for your money.

Hot Free Poker Gift Offers

Playing a Short Stack in Multi-Table Tournaments - Erica Schoenberg

August 23, 2008 0
The key to succeeding in tournament play is being able to handle the ups and downs, because it's not always going to go perfectly. Your chip stack is not always going to shoot upwards, which means you'll often need to make good decisions when you don't have a lot of chips.

Many players get frustrated when they have a short stack. They look down and see Ace-rag, King-Queen, King-Jack or some similar hand and they just focus on their own cards instead of seeing the whole picture. That kind of short-sightedness can quickly make a short stack even smaller and put the player on the rail.

Successfully playing a short stack takes a lot of determination. I believe it's like a mental war when you have the short stack because it isn't fun when you look around and everyone has all those chips. They're getting to play fun hands like 9-10 suited and Jack-10 suited and you don't have enough chips to play those hands, so you're just sitting there watching while everyone else is playing poker.

I was playing in a $1,500 No-Limit tournament at the World Series of Poker* when I raised under the gun with pocket Kings. It was Day Two of the tournament and it was the first hand I'd played after about 90 minutes of folding. Another player went all-in behind me and it was one of those situations where she didn't take her time to properly evaluate what had transpired so far. After not playing a single hand, I had raised with 40% of my stack in the earliest pre-flop position, which usually signals a monster. She pushed anyway with KJ and I think if she'd taken her time, she might have made a different decision.

You need to have patience when you're short stacked. You can't let poor results from previous hands affect you. Instead, I think it's really good to tighten up after losing a pot so that you can regroup. To recover from being short stacked, you really have to take your time and evaluate every situation. Who cares if you're taking longer than anyone else at the table?

Before the words “all-in” escape your mouth, take a couple of deep breaths, take 20 seconds and take a look at where the raise is coming from, how much it is for, and how much the person has behind. So many times I see people coming over the top of other players and not realizing their opponent is already committed and that their chips are going in the pot. Before you push all of your chips into the middle on a call with a short stack, look at the person you're playing, re-evaluate your hand, the raise, and what position it's coming from at the table. You have to remember that as long as you have chips you have a chance to climb from the bottom of the ladder to the chip lead.

That brings up another key point: I don't care what anyone else has in the tournament because when I start worrying about how many chips other people have, I'm not focused on the task at hand, which is increasing my chip stack. Short stacked or not, I own my chips until I push them into the middle; it's up to my best judgment to determine the best time to commit them to a pot.

Being on the short stack demands that you make the right decision every time you play a pot because making the wrong one will bust you. Don't be in such a hurry to shove those chips in. Find the right spot. Don't get frustrated by a string of poor starting hands. At some point, you might have to take a gamble and push if you can open the pot, but until that time, you control your own destiny. Effectively reading the table and the situation before you act will help you survive and, quite possibly, even win.

Aces Vs. Queens a couple times and 8 Tabling..I'll try 10 tomorrow:)

August 23, 2008 0
Alright, so played 1 or 2 hours of poker. Still playing the 10 man Double Ups, 5 out of 10 double their money. So if you have 1 chip left but place 5th than you still win. I placed 6th a few times, I hate placing 6th, difference between winning $20 and losing $20. Anyway, still up today, up to $205 or so.

Here's a couple hands,

I'm going to lose against an under pair 1 in 5 times..Heres how to calculate it. He can catch 2 Queens, so 5 cards to come so 5x2=10. 10 out of 48 cards remaining is about 20%.

At least I won this time, you can see I'm 8 tabling here and have $65 invested. Soon I'll stop playing the $5 and start playing $20sngs. Don't think I'll play anymore than 8 tables, was just joking in the title:)

Ya, this hand... this one almost got me on tilt. I get AQ in the sb. Blinds are only 10/20 and I'm out of position. I don't want to raise 100-120 and gamble with them. Just playing small ball poker. I hit an awesome flop, the nuts, I bet right out, 100 into a 60 pot hoping someone raises with a king. 10 on turn, I over bet the pot again 300 into 260 pot, I almost bet 350, don't know why I gave him a deal, I know he didn't want to fold because he called over bet on flop. River, can't put him on a flush..I bet out again and have to call the all in..He only has like 5% chance to hit runner runner flush..oh well.

Playing Heads Up - Paul Wasicka

August 22, 2008 0
Position is crucial in heads-up play. So is aggression and reading your opponent. In fact, playing aggressively in position can often be the deciding factor in whether or not you win the pot. You can have a much worse hand, but if you trust your reads, you can often take the pot with the right board.

Playing Position
I don't recommend playing that many raised pots out of position – in other words, don't call a lot of raises from the big blind. Hands like two face cards, A-8 and up, and pairs are worth re-raising with. Hands like 8-7 suited are fairly worthless because suited connectors like these can be easily dominated by larger hands and lose a lot of their value heads up.

In general, I'm looking for big cards like K-10. Even though these cards are easily dominated in ring games, they play much stronger heads up. If I hit a big pair with cards like these I can feel comfortable going with it, which is something that's hard to do with middle cards like 6-5.

I'm usually going to do one of two things in the big blind when I'm heads up; fold or re-raise. My standard re-raise is between three and four times my opponent's bet, and by pumping up the pot pre-flop, I'm making it difficult for my opponent to call me with marginal hands. If he does call, I can always make a post-flop continuation bet or lay down my hand if I've missed and my opponent leads out at the pot.

The only time I call out of position is when my opponent plays back at me by moving in a lot. My decision here comes back to paying attention to my opponent's tendencies and going with my reads.

Reading is Fundamental
Reading your opponent becomes even more important in heads-up play. Because your opponent is likely to raise with a much larger range of hands heads up, making reads is much more difficult. Learning to gauge your opponent's hand requires paying close attention to their patterns. Do they always raise the button? How often do they call your button raises? Do they ever re-raise from the big blind? Asking questions like these helps to narrow down their possibilities.

You have to trust your reads enough to act on them. If you sense strength, are you willing to lay down the second-best hand? If you sense weakness, will you apply the pressure it takes to win the pot?

In my experience in both ring games and heads up, many players try to accumulate chips too quickly. If you just sit back and wait for your opponents to make mistakes, you'll end up with all of the chips in the end. For instance, you should avoid making pot-sized bets when smaller bets will usually accomplish the same goals with less risk. Sometimes half-pot bets are even too high and betting the minimum is enough to gather the information you need about your opponent's hand.

This becomes especially true when your opponent becomes short-stacked. In these cases, I will usually limp on the button once they are around the 10 big blind range. If I do raise, I must have a hand I'm willing to go with because my opponent's only options are folding or pushing. Some people think it's weak to limp on the button, but I don't want to keep folding semi-decent hands in this situation. By limping when my opponent is short, they have to decide if they want to gamble with a high-risk/low-reward all-in move to win one of my blinds.

In heads-up tournaments you want to play in position, trust your reads, and play small pots to build a lead. Once you have a 3-1 lead, then you're looking for hands to gamble with against your opponent's short stack.

I've had a lot of success using these principles in heads-up play; they were instrumental in helping me win the 2007 National Heads-Up Championship. Put these ideas into practice and you may find the extra edge you need the next time you're playing heads up.

10 Sit and Gos, Up $50, yaa!

August 22, 2008 0
Today was a good day. Played just over an hour and up $50 playing $5 and $10 sit and gos. And their turbos too so each one is no more than 30 min. I'm still 6 tabling them but its hard to fill up the tables sometimes. Theres not so much traffic but its not bad. Once I get 6 tables going, I can join another right after 1 table closes. Only problem is my computer lags sometimes, freezes for a little and sometimes I miss a hand or 2...My hardrive is totally full with movies and junk. Got to clean it out, its like the computer is having a hard attack..Can't disk defragment the thing cause need 40gigs free space and only have like 2 gig free space lol. Maybe I should buy 1 terra byte external drive, I think I seen it for $100 something. And I think I'll upgrade the ram on the computer from 512 to 1024. Probably get the ram for like $30 or so.

Anyway, back to poker. Here's the outcome of the 10 sngs I played today. Won 8 out of 10, pretty good. And I played one 6handed sng too.

Playing Small and Medium Pocket Pairs in No-Limit Hold'em - Greg Mueller

August 21, 2008 1
Ring Game Play
In ring games, I like to build a really small pot when I have these hands in early and middle position. Sometimes I'll make a min raise; other times I'll just limp in. I want to keep the pot small when I have a small or medium pair because I lay them down if I'm faced with a large re-raise.

If I min-raise or limp in and an opponent makes a small raise, I can call, but if I open with a big raise and my opponent comes over the top, I'm not usually getting the right odds to call. By keeping the pot small, I have a better chance of seeing a flop and I may pull other players into the hand. Then if I do flop a set, someone's going to pay me off. To me, the biggest moneymakers in No-Limit ring games are small sets, like 2s and 3s, because they're so disguised.

A lot of players get overly aggressive with the middle pairs: 8s, 9s, and 10s. They raise before the flop with them, but if the blinds fold, they're only going to win a small pot. I'd much rather try to win a big pot by flopping a set. If the flop comes J-8-2 and I have pocket 8s while my opponent has a hand like K-J, I'm going to win a big pot a lot of the time.

If I'm in late position and have a small or medium pair, I'll raise in hope of taking the blinds if nobody else has entered the pot. If one of the blinds calls, I'll try to win the pot with a bet on the flop, but if both blinds call my raise, I'll be more cautious. Against multiple opponents I'm trying to flop a set. If I don't and there are several overcards on the board, I'll check if it gets checked to me and I'll probably fold if one of my opponents bets. If I'm in late position and someone in early position raises pre-flop, I'll generally just call and hope to flop a set.

Tournament Play
In tournaments you have to treat small and medium pairs much differently that you do in ring games. You have to play them more conservatively because you can't usually rebuy. In fact, I will often fold 2s, 3s, 4s and 5s under the gun in tournaments. In ring games, I always play these hands because of my implied odds. Even if I lose 15 of these hands in a row, I can always rebuy. In a tournament, if I lose five times in a row, it's going to really hurt my stack.

How I play small pairs in tournaments often depends on the size of my chip stack. If I have a big stack and get dealt a pair of 3s or 4s, I might raise, hoping to win the blinds and antes. However, if I'm on a short stack and in late position, I might just move all-in.

In tournaments I try to stay away from middle pairs because they can cause big problems and tough decisions. Let's say I call a pre-flop raise with pocket 9s and the flop comes 10-4-2. In a ring game, I would check and call or possibly check-raise trying to find out if my 9s were good. In a tournament, however, that’s scarier because you really have to be careful about the amount of chips you use to get this information.

My decision is easy when there's an Ace or King on the flop, but when the flop is 10-4-2 and I've got pocket 9s, it becomes very difficult. You can't fold every time, but you don't want to get too crazy in these situations either. Middle pairs are so difficult to play that I notice that I often find my best tournament results come when I simply stay away from them.

The beauty of small and medium pairs is that they very rarely get you into trouble. However, when they do, it really hurts. When the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em event at this year's World Series of Poker* got down to the last three tables, I opted to defend my blind with pocket 3s. The flop came J-8-3. My opponent and I got all our money into the pot, but as it turned out, he had pocket 8s. When you do flop set over set and you have the bottom end of it, you really get punished. But when that's not the case - and it usually isn't - you’re going to be in great shape.

When to Continuation Bet - Andy Bloch

August 19, 2008 1
When you raise pre-flop in a game of No-Limit Hold 'em and are called, you're faced with a decision when the flop hits the board. Should you put out a continuation bet on the flop or should you check and let the turn come off for free? Of course, there are a variety of factors that will effect any decision in a hand of poker, but if I was the one who raised pre-flop, I'll put out a continuation bet on the flop a large proportion of the time.

I can afford to put out a lot of continuation bets, whether I hit or not, because my post-flop bets are usually pretty small - about half the size of the pot. Pre-flop, I normally raise to three times the big blind, then on the flop, I'll put out a bet of the same amount. When I bet these relatively small sums, I don't put a whole lot at risk. If I get check-raised on a flop that I missed, I can fold without having lost a whole lot of chips. Most of the time, however, my opponents will have missed the flop, so my small bet will win me the pot right there.

While I prefer to put out continuation bets on most flops, there are some situations where checking is the right play. For example, say I raised with K-T and was called by the big blind. The flop of A-J-2 gives me a gutshot straight draw. I know my opponent in the hand likes to check-raise on top pair. When he checks to me on the flop, I'm happy to check behind and have the free draw to the nuts. If my opponent hit something like two-pair, I could double up if the Queen comes on the turn.

I also like to check the flop in hands where I'm either very far ahead or very behind. Say I raise pre-flop in late position with pocket Kings. The flop comes A-J-3. Here, my pair of Kings is either very far ahead (if he missed completely or has something like pocket 5s) or is very far behind (if he hit an Ace). In a spot like this, I don't want to get check-raised and I don't want to just give up, so I'll often check the flop and then call a bet on the turn. I can then try to get a read on my opponent if he bets the river. The worst thing I can do in this sort of situation is to put out a big bet on the flop and then call an all-in check-raise.

As with every aspect of poker, it's vital that your continuation bets don't become predictable. If you check every time you miss and bet every time you make top pair or better, then you're opponents will know exactly how to play against you. They'll be able to bet any pair with total confidence. So occasionally, you'll want to check when you hit top pair on the flop. Your hand will be disguised and you'll stand to win a big pot if you hit trips on the turn. Showing that you can sometimes check a good hand will keep your opponents off balance.

It's a good idea to put out frequent continuation bets, but also be sure to look for spots where a check may be to your advantage. If you've got a draw or hold a hand that will be difficult to play for a raise, a flop check may be your best play. Also be sure to mix up your play - being unpredictable is vital to playing winning poker.

Bankrollmob is a great site, lots of free poker bankrolls and I like hanging out in the forums and talk about poker and they pay you 10 cents per post:) That's why I have 1415 posts lol. $141.50, not bad.

Anyway, back to poker770. So I had, $32.70 in my account, played a little cash game a while ago and got to $40 and I think they gave me $20 on fathers day which was pretty nice:) So, had $60 when I started today. Played some $5 turbo sngs, didn't go so good and was down to $40. Than I played 10 man $5 headsup game where top 5 places double their money. Played those for 2 hours and up to $80:) Totally killing them, I think I won at least 75% of them.

And totally forgot about my PKR tickets, I'll try to get them back but its unlikely:(

Anyway, Check this hand out. I think the only 2 ways to play this hand was to push or check. I decided to check cause there was a limp from UTG and the blinds were only 30/60. Nice flop:) I think I bet 280 on the turn, he called and I pushed river but he folded.

Same table here, bullying the small stacks lol.

Heres some Bad Beats
Thought I was finally going win a coin flip but no. Poker gods had something else in mind.

Okay, this one. Thought it was going to be a split pot on turn but no. Had to take the whole thing. Just noticed a 3 would have given him a better hand on river but still a bad beat.
