  Thanks blue !! There were only 45 players,I'm not sure if it was because it cost $2.20 to by in or because only females. :) We played for almost 3 hrs and at first everyone was pretty careful..not any big plays but when we were down to 5 players...which were for the money,it went down to 2 of us in about 30 minutes. WE are down to 2 players and had around 45,000 chips apiece and we went back and forth for 10 minutes and I went all-in with 6's and won the tourney for $80.WooHoo !! :-bd Not bad for 3 hours of work !! ;) :)

That is a fantastic return for your $2.20 buy in Rosebud.  Excellent stuff.  Keep the wins and the bragging coming.

Ok, I gotta brag just a little bit... This was only my 2nd time ever playing poker online with other people and I actually finished in the money...  :-S It was the El Dorado Palace Daily Freeroll and I only won $6 by placing in 4th place out of 40 players... but, my first try I was so nervous I didn't make it thru 5 hands and then I waited over a month to try it again...  $$ so here is todays "in the money" screenshot  woo

Thank you so much blue... it felt really good... chuffed, yeah! Never ran into anyone else that uses that word other than me... 8)

I forgot to say the game was Omaha and I really never played that before, but I read the rules in the 15 minutes between registering and the start of the game...  8'|

Maybe I should do an Omaha thread on the rules  :-[ (if I've not already done one).

 

You know Katt - I wondered whether you would get the "chuffed" bit; I thought it might be a bit too English.  Glad you use it too  ;)

 

I'm looking forward to hearing some more super wins from you.

Thank you Medtrans.... why don't you start again by joining us for the LCB Exclusive Tournament on the 23rd at AdamevePoker?  We have 10 or 11 people now I think, but more would be merrier! It'd be great to see you there!

Thank you, thank you, thank you blue... give yourself a pat on the back too... you have inspired and encouraged me to get out there and give this a try... ! I was so scared to get out there and try this with other people... can't tell from this forum but I am extremely shy!

 

Today I was chatting with other players as well as playing... really mixed feelings about the chat aspect though... have had a lot of middle european players who speak their language to each other and when they spoke to me it was to call me an idiot...(seems I am doing ok for an idiot though)  :-bd m=Must have been middle of the night there during the game I won cause they weren't there and it was pleasant to chat and play!

Thank you Katt for your kind words.

 

Some players will use chat to catch you off guard or influence your play.  I tend to hide the chat most of the time.  Watch those people with their non-English chat - they don't stick to the rules and you have the right to say "English only" in the chat.  Most of them will apologise and stick to English afterwards.  If it is in the rules of the poker room, then you have the right to report them.  They could be discussing hands, tactics or anything to put another player at a disadvantage.

thanks blue! I have thought about it, as these same players are always  there and do this all the time... one player did say "english only:" and the guy cussed him. Same guy who calls me an idiot... I have been making notes of the players that keep doing this and it is indeed in the rules to use english only... if it continues I think I will say something to management as it makes the game unpleasant at the very least. Of course I am getting the opportunity to add to the already large number of languages I can cuss in! LOL

A BIG congrats Katt!! I agree with blue,you have to watch some of the players who speak non-english...they do cheat sometimes and let their buddies know what they have or in someway help them to win.I've seen it more than once.Again a big congrats and a WOOHOO!!!!

Thanks Rosebud... it was fun for sure! And those non-english conversations seem mighty suspicious to me... and they are not nice people with their name calling when they do speak english.

Regarding non English conversations, try and copy the text and paste it into Google Translate (auto detect > English).  I've done this on many occasions and pasted the results in the chat and told the entire table that they are cheating and this is what was said just now.

 

It really is out of order.

I tried to copy some of their comments from the chat box, but it would not let me do that.... I did grab some screenshots of the chat and tried getting a translation, but could not get anything coherent from that, just a word or two of most of the sentences, so I think it is too much slang they use when they do this, but I ain't givin' up on trying.

I would love to but I work every Sunday.  And when I was playing a lot of poker online I found that most of the good tourneys were played on Sundays too. 

 

Which sites do you play at and have you withdrawn yet?  I am thinking of going back to poker since I didn't spend as much money at that.

 

Thanks,

Awww shucks... Too bad you have to work on Sundays... but the good thing is you have a job...

 

As far as what sites and withdrawing, I am a 100% newbie and have not played enough to advise, but I am following blueday's new thread, online poker training, and have been checking out the USA friendly casinos there.

 

The win I had was at El Dorado Palace, but I am just learning on their freerools, they don't have much action anywhere else, but the tourneys are only 40 seats... have to be there and quick on the draw to get in... they fill up in less than a minute usually. 

 

I have tried bodog and Betonline, but only one tourney so can't say much about them.  I understand that Cake Poker is a good one, but have not tried it.  And Doyle'sRoom has sold to America's Cardroom and they have a very good rep in the poker world from what I understand.

Cheaper for sure, especially since I am playing all freerolls thus far. LOL

 

Hope to see you at the tables!
