      I'm starting my own little blog on clearing the welcome bonus on a poker site. The Site that I'm playing at the moment is Overbet. It's part off the Merge Network.
      The reason I'm pkaying at this site now, is that i got an offer for 50$ free. Or almost free, you had to deposit over 200$, and earn 500 VIP points. You'll earn 10 points for every dollar raked/tournament/SnG fee. There is also the First depositor bonus, that youll have 3 months to clear.
      I'm going to have a go at the firsk depositor bonus, pluss of course the 50 $ free bonus.
      I have allready deposited 215$, and startet playing just before the weekend. I need little over 16000 points to clear the first depositor bonus. I will try to update the blogg as often as possible.
      As i mentioned I have just startet playing. My bankroll i 250$ and I made about 250 VIP points. I have mainly played 5-10 $ SnG's.

      So till next time, take care.

      First update for this blog.
      Startet out with 250 $ sunday. played aprx 2 days. I have now 280$ and 300 points. I haven't played that many games. Mostly DON 5-10$ sng. Yesterday I was trying to start a 5 $ DON, there was 9 players registered so I Quickly registered, but when I looked closer I had registered to a 50$ DON, eek. Luckely I won the DON, and cashed 50 $. Some of the players playing at 10$ played at 50$ to, so moving up might not be impossible. But with only 250+ $ at the bankroll that would be insane. So building bankroll important now :D

      See you.

      Had a bad weekend at friday my computers Screen got smashed, so I cant use it. So I have to use my old computer. Hpoefully I get my new sceen this week.
      Had some bad days at the tables to. Havent played that much since my old computer realy sucks. I am now down to a 260 $ bankroll, but I have almost cleared the 50$ bonus, with my 450 points. I recived my first 5 $ chunk of first depsoitor bonus at 400 points.
      Played a 3500 $ gtd tournament this weekend finished just outside the payout. Shoved over a limper with less than 10 BB, with AJs. He had A7s and hit his Flush. Had 2 BB left, went all inn with AQs lost to A2u, hit flush. :D
      Thats life.

      Hello again

      Been some time since I updated.
      Had some good (lucky) sessions since than.
      I have earned 670 points and have therefore cleared the 50$ bonus. My bankroll is therefore 440 $. Dont think I will clear the whole first depositor bonus, with my laptop I can only play 2 or max 4 tables at the time without to much hassle. Since I only play 1-2 hours a day, it seems impossible. But I try to clear as much as possible.

      I will post one hand from a 10$ DON that i lost:

      Merge - $10+$0.80|<> NL - Holdem - 10 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      MP: 1,590.00
      Hero (MP+1): 1,500.00
      MP+2: 1,540.00
      LP: 1,470.00
      CO: 1,470.00
      BTN: 1,470.00
      SB: 400.00
      BB: 1,400.00
      UTG: 2,660.00
      UTG+1: 1,500.00

      SB posts SB 10.00, BB posts BB 20.00

      Pre Flop: (30.00) Hero has A:club: K:heart:

      UTG calls 20.00, fold, fold, Hero raises to 90.00, MP+2 calls 90.00, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: (230.00, 2 players) A:spade: 5:spade: 9:diamond:
      Hero bets 153.00, MP+2 raises to 1,450.00 and is all-in, Hero calls 1,257.00 and is all-in

      Turn: (3050.00, 2 players) 2:club:

      River: (3050.00, 2 players) 3:club:

      Hero shows A:club: K:heart: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 69%, Flop 27%, Turn 14%)
      MP+2 shows 5:heart: A:heart: (Two Pair, Aces and Fives) (Pre 31%, Flop 73%, Turn 86%)
      MP+2 wins 3,050.00

      It was early in the Sng so I tought about folding, but the player was sort of a maniac, played 80 % of the hands up to this hand. Had allready gone all inn post flop one time before (Tht time every body folded)

      Should I have folded. Done anything different?
