  2. PokerStars' announcement of a rake increase in October 2014 hasn't been very popular among poker players. The initial rake increase was applicable to its heads-up, hyper-turbo, sit-and-go tournaments as of November 3rd with a second round of increases scheduled for this year. As a result of the negative feedback and a period of review, PokerStars/Amaya Gaming Head of Corporate Communications, Eric Hollreiser, announced that the increases are being nixed except for the November changes to Spin & Go tables. PokerStars players should already be taking advantage of pre-November 2014 rake. PokerStars Reverts to Old Rake Structure
  3. I read that experts don't think there's a case against Ivey. Sorting is an age old practice and it's really up to the casinos to make sure the cards don't have any marks on them and change the decks like blue said. His case in a UK casino is still pending too right? Just because he wins big doesn't mean he cheats!
  4. I just saw Negreanu's episode of Millionaire Matchmaker last week. He was on last year and he picked this Lindsay chick. I think he's still single though isn't he?
  5. That's a nice chunk of change. A great opportunity for those of us with bad luck.
  6. As a newbie I can't read other players or myself LOL. Playing multiple tables at once would make that even more difficult. I wouldn't be able to focus and make good decisions. I envy those that can but one is enough for me.

    It's definitely useful to me Dmitry. Thanks and welcome to the forum ;)
  8. I'm not too sure about all this outs business nor do I know what I prefer at this stage. I agree lips that it's going to take some time to gain confidence and develop sneaky techniques. We shall she how things go ;D
  9. Hello Poker Crew! I decided to switch and try out Cake Poker since US players are now allowed to play there too! I hit the tables and I have to admit I was really nervous because it was my first time at taking this game seriously. I just knew my inexperience would show so I chose a table that wasn’t completely full. Less people to look silly in front of was my thinking. After I figured out how to bet, which was a process, LOL I knew I needed one more for a flush after the flop. I raised at this point. A couple of players went toe to toe with me but phewwwwww the river was good to me! I scooped up a nice neat little pot of 292. I’m still learning what beats what and I’m working on learning when to raise. That’ll come, I know. It cards were dealt in my favor but generally speaking, should I have waited to raise? Do you think I played it right? I was jumping up and down when I won. Got to keep practicing.
  10. Hi Poker Crew! Like Dorothy on the road to Emerald City, I’m beginning a journey to Poker Town. I know slots and I know bingo but I am not poker savvy. I’ve sat around the kitchen table playing poker for pretzels asking what beats what. I always needed that one person to show my hand to for guidance. This has got to stop and I’m on a mission to develop some serious skillz! I wish I could click my heels together to become an avid player but this ain’t the Land of Oz and I ain’t Dorothy. As embarrassing as it may be, I’ll share my progress with you brick by brick. If nothing else, we can have some good laughs. The first stop on my yellow brick road is PlayersOnly Poker. I’ll let you know how it goes.
  11. PlayersOnly Poker - USA OK Unlike a normal multi-table tournament where tables are balanced by moving players around, shoot out tournaments will play each table down to a set number of players in each round until there is a final table remaining. A simple example is a Shootout tournament with 100 entrants. Ten tables with ten players each will begin the tournament for round one. A certain number of players from each table will progress to round two (the number will change depending on the tournament). In our example, the top three players from each table will advance, meaning a total of 30 players remain. Round two will begin with three tables of ten, and again the top three players of each table will progress to the next round, with nine players battling it out at the final table! Shootouts are definitely exciting but require a different strategy then regular MTT’s. Final Table uses Standard Tournament Payout based on number of players at final table. Do we have any members with exciting participation stories?
  12. Get a piece of the Bad Beat Jackpot! Bad Beats happen to every player, but at The USA Rounder Poker Room has a way to potentially win big after losing with a monster hand! The USA Rounder - USA OK
  13. LinesMaker Poker - USA OK You feel like screaming. You claw at your hair in agony. You’ve just lost a huge pot to a really bad suck out. You just took a really Bad Beat. Though instead of the agony and frustration…what if there was cash. Lots of cash. More cash than you could count. Play now at LinesMaker Poker for a chance at our Bad Beat Jackpot! Well if you’re playing on the listed bad beat tables at LinesMaker Poker your worst bad beat may become the best hand you ever play with the massive Bad Beat Jackpot. In any Texas Hold’em game, you will be looking to maximise your value when you pick up Quads. The chance to go all-in is automatic, but what happens if your opponent is holding higher Quads, or even a Straight Flush? These are the worst of the Bad Beats, though with the Bad Beat Jackpot, these hands could see you pocketing thick wads of cash. The jackpot is seeded by taking 50 cents from every pot on the specially labelled ring game tables. As soon as a player has a monster hand cracked, the jackpot will be won, with every active player at the table receiving a portion of the prize money! The player with the losing hand will pick up the biggest percentage, so if you have Quad sevens or better using both hole cards, you should definitely hope to get beaten! Bad Beat Jackpot requirements: The losing hand must be at least a Four of a Kind 7′s The winning hand must be at least a Four of a Kind 8′s Both the winning and losing hands must include both hole cards. At least four players must be dealt in at the start of the hand The hand must have generated jackpot rake (ie. $0.50) Two or more players must be active at the end of the hand, and it must go to showdown. LinesMaker Poker does not tolerate collusion. All players must act independently and not reveal their hands to other players, nor tell them how to act. Failure to adhere to this requirement will result in automatic disqualification from the Bad Beat Jackpot. Players sitting out at the Bad Beat Jackpot tables are not eligible for the Bad Beat Jackpot. Should two qualifying jackpot hands hit at precisely the same time, the jackpot will be awarded to the hand that began first according to LinesMaker Poker’s server time. The second of the qualifying bad beat hands would be eligible for the reseeded Bad Beat Jackpot. If there are two or more hands that qualify for the jackpot within one hand, then the two highest hands will be considered for the jackpot, with the highest hand being the winning hand and the second highest hand winning the bad beat.
