OK, I have been playing poker on facebook, and I've found that the same program now accomodates myspace. I know, Rick, David and myself all have myspace (not to mention others on here), so we could play poker for free on there. I like the program, but maybe Rick could check it out to see if he likes it.

There are tournemants, no limit and private game options.

I wasn't sure if you had a myspace FP, but it might be worth having one, just for us playing poker, if nothing else?

Anyway guys, let me know if you join and we can organise a suitable time, my thought would be late on a Thursday or Friday night for you guys, but let me know what times would suit you best.

Yes I do have myspace. Whisper sweet nothings in my ear, and I might let you into my boring, neglected slice of cyberspace. I was not aware there was a program that would allow play on myspace. If it works, and there are no kinks, I would play.

I, sad to say, am a poker virgin, I think.

I mean, I've done it once before, but I was drunk, and it wasn't for money.

Does that still make me a virgin?

I'd love to play, and if I was the "Dave" of which you were refering, I'd definitely love to learn the game.

Here we play "Texas Hold'em", which I believe just escalates into an enormously large pot where one can lose their life's savings in a few minutes. When they say "everything's bigger in Texas", they're not shittin'.

So I guess I should brush up on the "Hoyle Casino" game we bought for my dad many years back, eh?

Sadly, yes you still qualify as a virgin. "Texas Hold em" is the game of choice. However, that doesn't mean you have to lose your life's savings in 10 minutes. In the real world, there are variations of the game. Such as pot limit, limit, and cap limit. Each version limits just how much a player can bet at any given round of betting. Each has it's merits and demerits. In limit, for example, you will only get paid a small portion for hitting your ace high flush and beating the guy holding trip Aces. In a case like that, you are thrilled if you are the guy holding the Aces, but pissed if you are the one holding the flush. That's where no limit might have gotten you paid a pirate's booty. You can also manipulate the length of the game by adjusting the blinds. Make them increase faster to induce more betting and all ins. Make them slower to allow longer play and more action. Make it a cash game where the blinds don't increase at all. Lastly, you can also use freebie points. Every website assigns players a certain amount of freebie points. If you lose them, you just reload more. The games play the same, but instead of losing next month's mortgage, you just lose some gold stars.

I don't know how the myspace or facebook games work, but they should have these options available. Try signing up at Full Tilt, Pokerstars, Bodog, or Doylesroom and give some free play a swing. Every site has a forum for the discussion of poker play. So you can learn and interact with other players just like here.

I checked myspace tonight. Maybe I missed some options or something, but the only game they offer is heads up. Pat on the back, I won my first time playing. If that is the only option available on myspace, I am a little sour. I love some heads up play, but it doesn't allow others to join the action. It was free and I gather they work on a ranking basis. Maybe facebook is the better option?

It's set up and the details have been ironed out. You just need an account at one of the sites that supports it. We haven't tried to organize a game in a while. Maybe it's about time. I have VIP status there, and should be able to setup a table and invite everyone to play. If you have a myspace, I have a poker group there where I offer my insights and tips. It's private, so hit me with a request and I will add you.

Btw, this is the 3rd week in a row I have finished 2nd in the weekly live tournament I play. It pays enough to pay my bar tab and a few cents left over. Will play for beer, lol.

No, not on Myspace. It's all fun and games. Which I take as serious as if my last $2 were in the pot. I am now over $200k simply by playing. If you want to make money playing, try some of the for money sites. Full Tilt, Bodog, Ultimate Bet, Poker Stars, Doyle's Room, Absolute Poker, and others. I have an account at most of them, so I can attest they are on the up and up.

I decided to make an account on pokerstars and check it out. I've always been a sucker for gambling and cards although I never really played poker. We play some weird version of blackjack here.

It is a bit getting used to. At the moment I play for fun of course, so only virtual dollars wasted but still I managed to play for more than 3 hours (hold'em 10/20 stakes) before someone robbed me of my last money with his four of a kind against my beautifull full house. Not bad for a poker naab I assume.
I feared they would play like idiots because it's for free but the games are rather serious.

I started again tonight with a new budget of 1000 dollars and am around 2.5k now. If I manage to get to 10k, I think it's time to invest real money.

Thanks for the info, I enjoy it.

D.

What? I have no website or marketing or anything. I am just simply a player that enjoys the game. If you are asking about joining a site, pick one I listed or do a search. Be careful though, not every site you find is legit. I would stick to the list I provided. I personally play at them, and have never encountered any problems. Customer service is fine and your deposits usually are immediate. Bodog is one of my favorite. They offer more than just poker. They also have sports betting, horse racing, blackjack, and casino games. Or you can wager on prop bets. Like will Britney Spears get remarried or who will win an Emmy. I've done pretty well there. In fact, I rarely play poker there anymore, and use them for horses and sports betting. Chuck Liddel cost me half my account in his last fight. That was a painful kick in the ass.

So I decided to try playing for money.

Hell, my first lesson for today is; poker is not gambling.

I was kinda amazed that money disappears so quickly in other pockets. Unlike I assumed, poker isn't only about probabilities, it's almost science. I discovered that when becoming rational again and doing what a sane man does when he is ignorant on a subject: try to read up upon it.

So if you got some tips where to find great info on the web, it would be appreciated.

Those of you who are tired of reading my poker posts, ignore the rest of this.

One of my favorite radio programs run by four idiots as dumb as me, offers a poker game in Atlantic City twice a year. They take over the Borgata for one day, and any listener willing to make the trip and pay to enter can play. I've never been able to attend, either because of bad timing or I just didn't have the cash available. The buy in is $300 and it pays out approximately $30,000 to the winner. It's an all day affair and hundreds of players enter. I always felt I could do well there, if I could just get there. Well the planets aligned and I am Atlantic City bound in a few weeks.

We recently got our rewards from our Trump card. We can stay at Trump Plaza for free. I had my wife call them to get the full details. Our total cost to stay the night is $5.60. Solid. They had rooms available for the time I need to be there. So that's out of the way.

The Junkies, the radio program, have a once a month poker tournament on Full Tilt Poker for members of their message board. It costs $11 to enter and based on the number of entries, you can win anywhere from $100 to $400. Well I decided to enter last week. I spent my last $11 on Full Tilt to do so. I now have $.45 left in my account there. This time they had a record number of users enter. It was over 100 players. The first place payout was $300 and some change. Second was $200 and some change. On down from there. I played a smart game. Within the first half hour, I was in the top 5 in chips. By the first hour, I was top 3. Thereafter, I took the chip lead and never looked back. I stayed in 1st or 2nd place for the next four hours. I eliminated players left and right. I built my lead. I got called names. I got rooted on. I took out one of the members of the radio show. I took out another later. I got booed and cheered. Eventually, I made it to the final table with a commanding lead in chips. Second place was one of the djs from the radio show. I have played him before on Full Tilt several times and we have spoken in person on more than one occasion. So we were familiar with each other. We swapped leads a few times. I would win a pot, he would win a pot. We would take out others at the table and increase our chips. Eventually, it came down to me and him heads up. I had a slight chip lead on him. As expected, we exchanged chips back and forth. Neither making a move really. It was after midnight by now. My goal was either catch a monster hand and make him make a mistake, or play very conservative and drag out the game. He has to be at the station by 5am, so I knew he would be watching the time very closely. Since I wasn't catching big hands, I went with the drag it out strategy. It was working. Then we both caught that magic hand. He pushed all in, and had a few more chips than me at that time. I had AQ and called instantly. I think he had a pocket pair of 7s. Fuck it all if nothing hit for me, and he won it. We both played that hand by the textbook. So for my 5 hour effort, I was rewarded with over $200 and 2nd place. I feel I should have won with the way I had played from start to finish.

The point of this is that I now have most of the money required for the buy in. I have a free room waiting. I have the available vacation time. Gas prices are cheap. Looks like Fakey is going to Atlantic City in a couple of weeks to kick ass and take names. It will be rough. Pros play in these games. However I like my chances. I have been on a month long winning streak. I have finished 2nd in every tournament I have entered in the last month. I haven't paid a bar tab since. Using my winnings to do so. I am ranked in the top 10,000 players on myspace. Out of the millions that play there. Not easy to do. I just hope my luck didn't burn out the other night. I want $30,000.

Good shit! I'll be rooting for you. Don't go full tilt on yourself though just yet.

At one point, I was rated 666 on myspace. I took a screen shot of it fortunately, because I didn't stay there long. Thought it was pretty apt though!

I enjoy reading your poker posts. Learn heaps from them.
