Hey pals,

Any poker players around? πŸ™‚

In the past I have played quite a few hands, even support myself with poker for sometime, but nowadays not enough time for something more than occasional spin and go`s.

Well, I love poker but I really suck as a player πŸ˜‰ Just not a poker face πŸ˜› that's why I prefer usually just sit and watching, where do you play online? tell some good poker story...in which you're making a robbery of course πŸ˜‰

I really like the game and I tried playing it online a bit now and then a few years ago. I even had Pokertracker and some HUD software going on my computer and all that. I was a decent player that could win money at the low stakes I played at. But I found it gets really boring really quickly when you play it a lot.

These days I don't have the free time or the patience to sit at the computer for the hours it can take to grind through a tournament (I prefer them to cash games).

I like poker but find my patience to sit for the long periods of time needed. I would be interested in shorter version games, but I don't see many of them available to US players.

Well, great for him, for sure luck is needed but as you know there's a lot more beyond luck needed to win such a big tournament. So you could call hill him also I guess skilful bastard too πŸ˜‰

I really like poker but I haven't played it that much, only casino holdem. But I have interest in it so maybe you could tell me more about the poker tournaments? How much it usually costs? Sorry if the quwstions are silly.

In this case I have to agree he was quite lucky to win it, although I guess his consistency assure him a place there.

And again not really . πŸ˜‚ He was good player actually, but quit the poker in pursuit of another career, then saw a advertisement for this promotion and deposit just $10 bucks or so to participate. I am trying to find the story - there is article and interview about it.

So obviously he was really lucky than - must admit that, the best spent 10$ πŸ˜‰ it sound like he hit the lottery or something, great story though πŸ‘

I play primarily on ACR, after ignition refused to give me my cash out, which is hopefully being worked on by the good folks here πŸ™‚. Back when Pokerstars was legal in the USA, I took 2nd place and $66,600 in a massive $109 rebuy tournament. Never quite a feeling like that, if only I had won it when I was older and more responsible ha!! I was able to get most of it out before Black Friday, still trying to relive that moment.

Absolutely love Poker ...online and land based πŸ™‚
Then best poker sites I feel are : Silversands Poker, Unibet poker and Full Tilt. I have won a few tournaments and have been playing for 13 years now.

Hello,
This Silversand - are they part of network or standalone poker room?

a few years ago I was lucky to fighting at the final table. starting just from 0.01$ cenroll tournament i got 109$ ticket. this is really a miracle. that I won every hand for a few rounds and became the leader chips until the remaining 9 players. unfortunately I stopped in second position after my hands AA defeated by fulhouse at showdown from hand 83. I want to repeat the beautiful moment 🚬

They also have a Casino. But there Poker site is separate and as far as I recall they are indeed.
I have been paid from them many times. Just verify your Docs.

Yeah its not an easy task to become a poker pro. But is possible if you spend enough time for both playing and studying the game..

I agree if you play when you have good mood 🍺
I have a fantasy to win a major tournament. but every played any tournament my hands just crushed. just sit in a view minutes and get kick out. it makes me believe that strategy does not contribute in tables. maybe more luck πŸ˜•

I love playing no limit hold em, it's taken me a few years and so many hands to finally be playing consistently . I decided to give pokerstars poker league another go last month, I only played 3 tourneys but did so well I got boosted up a level, plus operators have me a small bonus for my consistent play out of 9000 give or take, I placed 3rd, another out of 6500, I placed 309, and the third our of 5700, I placed 5th .
