A bit tired of NL, I decided to have another limit session. But 15/30 and 20/40 are so boooring. I want something that will keep me interested. Hmmm. I know! I should multi-table 100/200 on Party for 5 hours!

I never even played that back when I was playing limit for a living. But I tried it. And wow, I had fun. Yes, that means I won. But I like games where people's mistakes are in being too aggressive. Maybe I've just become too much of a gambler, but games like that are so much more fun.

Example of a fun hand:

Party Poker Limit Holdem Ring game
Limit: $100/$200
6 players Converter

Stack sizes:
UTG: $2700.50
UTG+1: $21970.50
CO: $2695
Button: $8216
SB: $3981
Hero: $5111

Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is BB with Qs Js
UTG raises, 4 folds, Hero calls.

Flop: Kh 6s 2s (4.5SB, 2 players)
Hero checks, UTG bets, Hero raises, UTG calls.

Turn: Ac (4.25BB, 2 players)
Hero bets, UTG raises, Hero calls.

River: 7c (8.25BB, 2 players)
Hero checks, UTG bets, Hero calls.

Final pot: 10.25BB
UTG shows Ts Qh
Hero shows Js Qs

QJ-high good! I had a read, dammit. Another hand:

Stack sizes:
UTG: $19743.75
UTG+1: $6588.50
CO: $3856.50
Hero: $4746.75
SB: $1192.62
BB: $2783.50

Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is Button with Th 7h
2 folds, CO raises, Hero 3-bets, 2 folds, CO calls.

Flop: Kc 3d 9c (7.5SB, 2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets, CO calls.

Turn: Jh (4.75BB, 2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets, CO calls.

River: 3c (6.75BB, 2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets, CO calls.

Final pot: 8.75BB
Hero shows 7h Th
CO shows Ac 7d

Donkeys who can't fold high-cards...tsk, tsk. Although, I bet if the river didn't pair the board he would have folded. At least no one can accuse me of not being able to cultivate an image.

Anyways, in a few hours I'm off to LA until Monday. I was going to just play the 10/20 and maaaaybe 20/40 NL games out there, but now I'm considering playing the 40/80 and 100/200 games as well. Not because I want to switch back to limit, but variety is good. Wish me luck.

Hi, seeing as you accept anonymous blogging I thought I would send you this info about online gambling from a guy at work. His blog features buy fruit machine and he has made a fortune from online gambling.

The Online Casino Startup Bonus

When choosing a trustworthy online casino there are many factors you need to consider. Just because one of the great number of online casinos existent today has impressive graphics, games and offers a wide diversity of bonuses, it doesnt mean its a fair and licensed one. Of course, such cases are rare, and, since today there are hundreds of reputable virtual casinos one can choose from, the most important criteria when deciding which one to play at is what they offer.

The first bonus you can get when you first open an account at a casino is the sign up bonus most casinos offer, an encouraging bonus of at least $25, but it may often be higher than $500. Some casinos even match your first deposit, meaning they double it, for free.

Many casinos also offer hundreds of dollars worth bonuses for new players and, if you're the one who brings other friends to the casino, things are even better than that. Most casinos offer a refer a friend bonus and, the more friends you have, the more fortunate you will get. For each friend you refer to the casino, you will get up to $1000, for each friend that they refer, you'll earn up to $300 and, furthermore, for each person that your friend's friends refer, you will earn up to $100. Once you are confident that particular casino is a reliable one, bring as many of your friends as you can to the casino and you'll have all the reasons to enjoy their games. The only thing you need to pay attention to afterwards is to handle the money wisely and not risk it all in a single bet, however confident you may be.

And most casinos give you an alternative to this. They offer you the chance to practice for free at first, and they also give you money to do that, so, it's practically free and you have nothing to lose. When you find the right casino you'll know it from the first time you play there. From then on, they will remind you how important you are to them by giving you special bonuses every month. These bonuses are somewhere around $100 and even higher and they reward you for being a loyal customer. These casinos also offer the so called comp points that accumulate throughout the course of the games you play and at certain points they turn into real money and, depending how long you have been playing at that casino, you may win lots of money.

The most important bonuses casinos offer are the jackpots and prizes you can win at their games. Casinos reward players with millions of dollars each day for their gaming skills. Tournaments and regular casino games are most profitable for gamblers. Only one progressive jackpot, for one single game of slots, for instance, can be of over $ 2 million. And it's only a matter of seconds and a bit of luck to win it.

Most casinos don't need a special occasion to give bonuses. They offer bonuses for the players third and fourth deposits, for being loyal to the casino, or just for being at a table at a certain time. So, it’s only a matter of finding the right casino and from there on, bonuses will keep coming to you. The only problem is that if you don't have a proper money management you won't treasure what you win, it will go away as easily as it came. We may all want those bonuses, but do we know what to do with them and how much of it we should risk in our next bet?

A guy at work recommends the following Casino Gaming Sites, (the trick is to sign up to each and get your startup bonuses) once you have played each one for a while you will get to know which one suits your style of play and which is therefore the most profitable one for you.
