      Hello Dragar,

      you are already an experienced poker player and have been a member of PokerStrategy.com for quite some time - therefore you have been chosen to be part of our "test group" that will receive a second starting capital of $50 on Titan Poker.
      This second $50 + $100 bonus has no strings attached - you don't need to deposit anything yourself and you don't have to pass an additional quiz.




      Why would you do this to me??? I quit for a reason!!!!
      But I miss it too much haha.

      Back to the micros it is.

      I will start with NL5/NL2. Move up to NL10 once most of the bonus is released and up and up and away. (I will be playing super low volume though!!!)

      At the same time I will be playing NL50/NL100 live games in my local currency... FL, NL, omaha.. whatever. You have no idea how much people suck here :) . (this will be my main source of money I hope.. do or die!)

      My thought process in one hand was literally "I have been very aggressive so far, I have completely missed this flop in this 3-way so I will just c/f this one.... wait why is he under betting after I check to him... must punish.... " *performs a c/r, gets called, bets blank turn.. gets the pot*


      By the way... my entire BR is frozen on money bookers because of their anti-money laundering laws (did not verify my address since I lost their freaking letter). So now I goto resolve that too. It is so painful to look at a screen and see that you have 1.7k sitting there (local currency), but can't touch it.... grrrrr


      I will leave you guys with this video... it sums up why I want to grind it out live now. The perception of Poker in China and Singapore is exactly like in this video. After this movie is released I expect millions of $$ in dead money to enter the Asian Poker world :)

      It's because we love you :)

      goodluck.

      lol @ that video "He's probably has the worst hand of cards, but he finds a way to ride that bad hand all the way to the top where he is right now, And he can beat you with it"

      haha, I can see it now.
      "ALL-IN"
      "What do you have?"
      "72o"

      I am German... but live in Singapore.

      Anyways... I am down slightly on NL2 at the moment. People call me over 2 streets with AK high... on like 977x board.. appreciate that (yeah I am being outleveled :) )

      But two things are amazing... I can value bet so thinly and it works. c/r with TT on 559 board. Bet blank turn, bet all-in river. I am good.

      The other very sick thing is this: An entire BI is my usual pre-flop raise..... it just feels so weird. However I am hardly spewing which is good I guess. I seriously need to get to NL10 as quick as I can.. this super micro stuff just feels weird haha.

      Oh on October 2 I will be playing in the poker championships of my uni. I paid 45$ (15$ for buffet and drinks) as entry to a 100 player field. First price: 19" plasma screen TV. Second price: Netbook... woot woot its ebay time if I win.

      Also looking forward to the side games which will hopefully happen in some backrooms since playing for money is not allowed here haha.

      Bustoooooooooo...

      I said red.. it was black



      Sorry.... I don't think I will ever be able to play micro limits ever again. There is really no freaking point to do it.

      Any poker site that has blackjack or roulette attached is just evil and I will not play there ever (again lol.) I notice that some even have an icon on your table to play bj and install the software automatically.

      Bad luck dragar, but not really if you truly put it on red. Everyone knows it's black.

      So I deposited 200$ on FT for NL10... first session I am down 5.5BI

      AA vs KK, no good
      AK vs AQ, no good
      Ak into AA
      Ak into KK
      QQ into AA

      2 overs with flush draw.. fail (thats what I get for being scared and not 3-betting pre)

      And then someone made me fold top set.... cause I thought since we were deep... he would only 4-bet a made straight on the turn... and not a freaking two pair. K23 4 board. I checked behind the flop w/o betting since I was way ahead. On the 4 he bets into me.. I raise, and he re-raises.... I call. River is blank and he makes a potsize bet of like 75bb... I fold. He shows K4... mispalyed the hand I guess but was tired :(


      Hmmm... I will go against BRM now and continue with NL10.
      14.5BI should be enough ffs.
