      Hello Forum,

      Played a bit of poker previously but always lost all my deposit. Thought this time would try it a bit more properly so thought would join a forum as help me in other adventure, and this was the one I liked the name of :D

      I have already done all the sign up offers available as part of matched betting/advantage gambling that I have been involved in. That netted me a tidy £4,500 over 10 months, but the casino side got a little too tempting so have knocked it on the head for now.

      I am currently playing on betfair as it gives the option to self exclude from everything other than sports and poker which helps me avoid the old trap of trying to make poker loses back on black jack :D

      So far it is going well. (for a day anyway :D ). I am playing 0.05/0.10 NL and 0.10/0.20 NL cash games, but have also been dabling in sitngos and tournaments to see what I like the feel of. So far cash games up £25, tourneys/sitngo down £19.... so i feel I am going wrong somewhere :D

      Am going to try and read up a few things and see what is what, but thought would introduce myself first :D


      Edit: Also seen people talking about rakeback, is this possible on betfair, and do i need to have signed up through the site or can it be added to my existing account? and is it worth the effort?

      Hello Catonthemat

      Welcome on the PokerStrategy forum :welcome:

      You can’t get accounts tracked if you want to do it afterwards. So that will be impossible for you I’m afraid on Betfair.

      There are off course still enough options to use our free money offers on poker rooms you don’t have an account yet.

      Further I wish you a pleasant stay on our forum and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask them.

      Best regards,
