The lion roars...quietly

Just a quick post since I haven't in a while. It has been a good month so far on the poker tables. I haven't played a lot this month, but after almost 2 years of being almost a strictly a Limit player, the No Limit tables have been very kind to me. I'm up about $1300 so far playing at $50 and $100 buy in tables.

Main site redesign

I've updated finally. It was kind of just there with a few links so I've turned it into kind of a second blog. I won't post day to day stuff there. It will be mostly cool sites, contests, products and technologies. I have a section on the projects I'm working on. One of which is my fun with the google maps API which you can see at Dreamline Travel.

Our latest site we finished is now up. Since we're trying the work from home thing, we created a site for people looking to do the same. is now up and ready to help you find your niche.

In poker fun, I played the $11 rebuy and add-on at Pokerstars with about 1200 entrants. I didn't rebuy or add on still managed to finish 48th for a nice $154 payout.

Played some 1/2 the other night on UltimateBet and won about $43 and I have been up and down playing NL on various sites.

In the PSO league game tonight I was doing well and had to fold back to back hands to all ins after raising preflop. I finally pushed with J9, hit 2 pair on the turn when board was QJ79 and the river came a 7 with the guy having AQ. So I was done.

That's about it for now. May the flop be with you!

March in like a lion

And hopefully not out like a lamb. I'm up about 800 overall so far for the month, most of it at Poker Fantasy and some at Party Poker. I have been playing No Limit lately and have been doing relatively well. I make stupid moves every now and then or I'd be up another $100 or so. I'm trying though.

Party has a new kind of bonus they are pushing. Clear 1000 hands in 3 days then get $100 bonus and you can then clear 1500 hands in the next 3 days to get another $100. If you can then clear that you can do another 2000 hands in 3 days to get a third $100. I cleared the first and am in the middle of the second. Not sure if I'm going to be able to do the 1500 hands but I'll try.

I have a bunch of other bonuses I still need to clear as well. At UltimateBet alone I still have like $2100 in bonus money waiting to be cleared. UB is slower than most sites though.

That's it for now. May the flop be with you!

WSOP Freeroll Qualifier Take 2...and 3...and 4

After my feeble attempt to qualify and come within 15 people of making it on Monday night, I decided to sign up for 3 of the qualifiers Wednesday.

Tournament 1: Played well but finished around 600 when my 93 in the big blind got trounced by K9 after the flop came 997.

Tournament 2: started at 5:05 and I finally got knocked out in 56th place. Once again on the bubble. Once again with AK. Blinds were coming and the tourney was slow to knock people out. I needed some chips and that was my best chance.

Tournament 3: 10PM or so started the tournament. At 3AM I finally made it into the top 50. YES!
Finally. Now I have an entry into the main event on Saturday.

Now the problem is it still won't let me register!@# Damn you party!

I emailed support and they said they will register me within 48 hours (yeah right) and if not I should call their support line (not looking forward to that). So hopefully Saturday I will finish in the top 20 and win a WSOP entry!

WSOP freeroll qualifier

Party Poker is running freerolls where top 50 go to main freeroll where top 20 players get WSOP buyins.

1st - 50k HORSE buyin
2nd - 10th - main event buyin
11th - 20th - 2k event buyin

So top 50 of like 2500 or 3500 people get into this thing that will run Sunday.

We are down to 100 players or so blinds are 2k/4k and I push my 65k all in with QQ and get a guy callme with AK and my queens hold up. Bume 130k stack or so. I figure I can just coast in from here as the average stack was about 125k. OF COURSE NOT.

So unless I got AA/KK/QQ I was pretty much folding everything at this point. Only 2 hands had potential but I got JJ and AK both in first position and didn't want to risk it. Unfortunately I was the small stack at the table. I'd have a medium nice stack on any other table :(

So there are 62 people left.
Blinds are 8000/16000 with 200 ante.
I have 50k chips left. So I only have like 2 more rounds before I'm blinded out.
Folded to me in SB with AKs
I push
BB calls with A5s
Of course 3 diamonds hit the board and I'm done in 62nd place.
Oh well.

There freerolls are running a bunch of times every day so I'll try again.
