      I love the game of poker and often do well in tournaments I feel I could do a lot better if I didn't stupidly gamble on the casino games it has cost me many bankrolls in the past sighs I am now broke and sadly will have too just concentrate on freerolls . I won the ps freeroll on will hill (garbagehunter)today sadly that went on the slots as well but there you go no control 5 hours play wasted in ten minutes lol. Btw my favourite tourney game has to be the Omaha Hilo

      Hallo!

      First post after 1,5 years. I think about saying: Welcome to Pokerstrategy, but this does not sound good (like some of my sentenes). :D

      I would say, you have to change the platform. Please choose a pokerroom without casino games. I would bite my into the ass if I waste my money at the roulette or at black jack tables.

      For this reason, change the room and uninstall all software with casino. Hope you will get a new BR soon.

      hi diamonddaz,

      better late than never i guess :D a warm welcome to posting on the forum! hehe...

      seems like you really have a problem with the casino side of things. ?( i think you need to self-exclude yourself from those kind of games. they are very -EV.

      smiles,
      wendy

      hi people tyvm for the welcome and advice. The reason why i have been honest on here is because people think that poker and gambling is of the same blood . Yes there are a lot of gamblers that play poker which is mostly good for the skillfull player but i know too be a winning player you have to be disciplined,skillfull and clever with decisions and to play to a bankroll is of up most importance. I believe i have what it takes. Unfortuantly for me i have the other disease a in which i am currently having counselling for trust me there is a lot more too it than just gambling i am still with the hope i can get rid of my faults and concentrate on what i know i am good at. I need to be strong and turn this around and one day i may be in a position to help others that have similar issues.

      why don't you deposit money on 888 poker and player there easier players to beat . Or deposit on a site with no casino section, or restrict yourself to playing them.

      Hey it's been said a couple of times in here already but if you do want to make a deposit or play some freerolls then whatever site you play on just email their support (some even have live chats) and ask them to exclude you from the casino i think every site now can ban you from casino but still allow you to play poker

      :)
