Full tilt SNG traffic?

Long time ring player, thinking of adding in some SNG's for a change. Full Tilt's sign up bonus + [unmentionable] adds a decent amount to my ROI if I choose to go that route. Is there enough traffic...

Re: Caribbean Sun

Caribbean Sun just rebranded themselves as Sun Poker, probably because nobody could spell Caribbean. They're still listed on BW, just as Sun Poker.

Re: Am I allowed to have an account on multiple sites of the same netw

On every network I've ever played on, you can. That includes IPN/Boss Media, Prima, Crypto, Party (the good old days!), PokerRoom, B2B, and IPoker. Tribeca allows it too. Only one I'm not sure of is...

Re: last one tonight, completely lost

I'd bet the flop while I was at it. You're the PFR against 6 random hands. You have two overs and a gutshot, 3 of which give you the nuts. No one knows you whiffed. Pokerstove gives you a decent pot...

A very short, very winning session

Why do people sit down at a table with 6 BB? And why do sites allow this?

I just started a game at Prima, and some guy sits down with 6 BB and change. First hand HU, I have QJ vs his AJ when a J...

Re: How do you put in the hours?

If you're playing .5/1, you're obviously playing for fun, and maybe a little extra spending cash, not for a living. So why put in more hours if it's not fun? Play as much as you enjoy.

Re: How many hands at Limit Poker do you need in a Poker Tracker...

You don't need to be a math guy; just plug Homer's formula into Excel and let it do the math for you. But here's the easy version for you:

If you made $400 (or 100 BB) over 13k hands, that's .77...

Freeroll win--pure brag here; no content

I never play tournaments except for freerolls with good overlays. This was one. 10,000 AP points; only 55 entrants, paid to 18, $5,000 guaranteed. So this was pretty damn cool:

Re: why am i always in these spots?

You're in this spot because of your flop play. The pot is huge, and a set of sixes is not an invulnerable monster on this board against 4 opponents. There are two straights draws and a flush draw...

Re: How good is Bayou Poker\'s \"Bottomless Bonus\"?

It's a 50% rakeback deal, which is 50% of the rake attributed to you in each hand. So if 10 players are dealt cards, and the pot is raked $2, your share is .20, for .10 rakeback, regardless of how...

Re: A question for long time whores

I'll add in Golden Riviera as a good recurring bonus. It's actually a weekly 7x raked, up to $20. Seems like a pittance, but that adds up to $1040 a year if you do it religiously every weekend. (You...

What games are best/worst for maniacs, calling stations, etc.?
