Online poker / Rakeback

Been spending a lot of time playing small limit cash games on Cake Poker recently. Must say it is going pretty well so far but what really got me excited is when I got my rakeback report at the end of the month. It was like icing on the cake, after being up a decent amount of money over the month I also received a couple hundred through my rakeback program. So this post is for everyone who isn’t a registered rakeback account holder. There are tons of different offers out there which are available for most of the biggest poker rooms.

Every rakeback affiliate has different promotions and bonuses that they provide you with when you sign up so make sure to go through the main ones instead of just jumping onto the first thing you see. Rakebrain.com caught my attention by always offering all kinds of different free rolls for their members and having rake races with the winner being awarded a decent cash prize. So be smart and get rake.

AA vs. AA

Rofl. I always dread these aces versus aces situations because you just KNOW someone goes on to make a Flush, right?

Well, not this time — the two luckboxeschop it, and I suppose that’s best for everyone…

A Powerful Heads-Up Play

If you play a lot of heads-up poker you’ll know a killer heads-up power play when you see one. I just read a post titled Heads-Up Strategy: The Re-Raise/Shove Routine on Teh Jinx Poker and I’m very much sure it’s a winning strategy. Test it out on the online green felt!

Seven Card Stud Is MY GAME!

Okay — so I lied a LITTLE bit in my title, but not completely… Have been playing a lot of 7 card stud over past few days, and have actually been accumulating money even though I’m quite new to the game. I had expected to land in a pool of experienced players, completely different from the No Limit Hold’em games where tv-watching donkeys make sure I keep making money playing poker — but to the contrary — a lot of people looked like they were clueless when it comes to playing from 5th street on…

That’s good news, and I’ll be trying to focus a little more on Seven Card Stud in the next few weeks… Trying to learn all the games is fun, and like this, it’s a good investment too! ;)

For more info on Seven Card Stud I can advice some articles over at Vincent’s Poker Blog:

Two-outer on the river: Excellent Suckout

Got to love WATCHING (not experiencing first hand, plz) when someone pulls out a one-outer on the river — this guy rightfully calls a bet with the overpair, but he’s faced with a higher overpair….

Luckily — he makes the miracle suckout on fifth street. AWESOME!!!!!! source!

Chinese Poker Online: Finding a Needle in a haystack

As Chinese poker has fallen from favour it becomes increasingly difficult to find a site that you can play at. The only site I could find was Tiger Gaming. Although even on this site you would have to look for it under the ‘13 Card Poker’ Banner.

Tiger Gaming has long been the most well known online providers of Chinese Poker and other exotic games. Both eastern and western styles of play are available so you can choose which type of game suits your taste.

Play money tables are available so new players can learn Chinese Poker before deciding to play for real money. Real money games range from 25 cents to $10 per point.

Fortunately for fledgling Chinese poker players Tiger Gaming has some of the worst poker players around. Although bear in mind at the higher limits of Chinese Poker the standard will be a lot better due to a lack of places to play Chinese poker.

Tiger Gaming, part of the Action Poker Network, which is in the top 25 poker sites and Networks on the internet, shares it’s players and tables with the other members of the network. Tiger Gaming has good customer support, decent software and good tournaments and reloads. New players can get a sign up bonus and it runs decent promotions. Tiger Gaming offers reloads nearly every month. These reloads are generally quite lucrative with 50% up to $1250 [or a player's maximum deposit limit].

Building a Bankroll – A Rough Guide

If you want to play poker to have a bit of fun and you don’t care about making money, (or perhaps you are independently wealthy) look away now. Maybe sing a little song to yourself or go and play a bit of poker.

Right now the monkeys are out of the way you can focus. One of the key things about actually making money online is bankroll management. To build your bankroll so you can play with big boys can take a lot of hard work. However if you set yourself some guidelines you can become one of those players that actually make money and not one that is endlessly reloading.

Firstly keep records. Know for certain whether you are a winning player. You can get software to do this for you, pokeroffice or pokertracker, or you can set yourself up a little spreadsheet in Excel. Record wins, losses, rakes, hours played as a minimum.

Secondly implement some rules. If you play cash NLH then roughly 300 times the big blind is adequate (so for 50C/$1 games you need about $300). If you play SnG or MTT then 20 or 30 time the buy in should be adequate. If you suffer three or four bad beats (or losses through stupidity – yes we all do it) the get up from the computer and do something different. Whatever you do don’t double up to cover your losses.

Lastly play at a level you win at. If you make some money and move up a level but find you start to loose don’t be afraid to drop down a level. Being a winning player at a lower level that your bankroll suggest is better that blowing all your bankroll in one session.

Bonus Hunting: Boosting your bankroll with Casino Promotions

Poker rooms often have promotions as a sweetener to sign up with them and stay loyal. They are looking to keep you playing at their site and will offer play as you earn bonuses. You can use this to your advantage to help you build you bankroll. Hey if you are playing anyway you might as well be getting a little extra. Even players who usually end up even can boost their bankroll by playing a lot at one particular site.

Most poker rooms offer a sign up bonus for new customers. If you are new to online poker resist the urges to open accounts all over the web as you can move sites to build your bankroll. It is possible to build a bankroll of a few thousand dollars from $50 just buy coming out even, but working the bonuses to your advantage. Just be aware that some bonuses are better than others. A small signup bonus can be better than a large one if the large one is going to take too long to clear. When you have cleared your bonus, look for a new site to make some more free cash.

Another bankroll boost is the freeroll. Many sites have freerolls to enter in exchange for loyalty points. Buy using freerolls to your advantage you can sharpen your poker skills and add to your bankroll at the same time. Freerolls can be very lucrative as shown by the current story of Annette_15. Annette_15 claims to have never loaded money into a casino site, she started off winning a freeroll and now makes six figure sums playing poker online.
