Poker tournament bonus search

Saturday, February 28th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Bonus, Poker Tools | No Comments

This article belongs to the Poker Tools series. Repeating the same thing doesn't make it less true, therefore with no further ado, my words of wisdom: "when playing online poker you should always have either a bonus or rakeback deal associated with your deposit or your account. This will maximize your earnings, increase you bankroll and provide a faster route to higher limits." For all you tournament players like myself, finding the right bonus for your limit of poker tournament play Read more [...]

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009 | Poker Projects | 2 Comments

It's been a couple of weeks since we started our Fulltilt poker (FTP) SNG and MTT poker bankroll building projects, so we thought it was about time with an update on our progress (or lack of the same). We were off to a slow start, both being busy with the re-design of the pokerbrb website, but then things cleared up and we were able to put in some hours on the FTP tables. Here's a quick overview of the tournaments we've played: Two 3$ MTT's Two 2$ 180 player SNGs One 2$ 9 player SNG Four Read more [...]

SNG (Sit and Go) poker bonus search

Saturday, February 21st, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Bonus, Poker Tools | 5 Comments

This article belongs to the Poker Tools series. When playing online poker you should always have either a bonus or rakeback deal associated with your deposit or your account. This will maximize your earnings, increase you bankroll and provide a faster route to higher limits. However with more than 357 online poker sites available with their own individual bonus programs, finding the best bonus for your limit and type of play is a daunting task. Fortunately my buddies at WOSB  (World Read more [...]

Poker freeroll/MTT tournament league on the PokerBRB site

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009 | Poker News | 6 Comments

As you may have noticed the activity on our blog has been dwindling lately. Rest assured this is not due to blogging fatigue. Unfortunately there are only 24 hours in a day and since sleeping, working full time as a project leader, working out in the gym, eating and taking care of other life necessities take up roughly 22 hours that only leaves 2 hours for poker related work. Currently much of our poker time is spent re-designing the PokerBRB website to accommodate a freeroll/MTT tournament league. Our Read more [...]

The art of poker deception

Sunday, February 15th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Strategy | 2 Comments

Submitted by Rakewell, this article belongs to the Poker Strategy series. I recently read this post on Rakewell’s PokerGrump blog where he continues along the track of learning poker from things that don't necessarily have anything to do with poker. A friend had free tickets for any Regal Cinema feature, so we hit the one at Fiesta Henderson to see "Slumdog Millionaire" today, curious as to why such an apparently unlikely movie racked up 10 Oscar nominations. Well, the reason becomes obvious Read more [...]

Trash talking – is it really worth it?

Thursday, February 12th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Rules | 5 Comments

This article belongs to the Poker Rules series. Last night I finally had the opportunity to sit down and play a $10+1 6-person SNG on Mansion. It had been the first time since Sunday I got to play, I know not that long between sessions but still long enough for me. Before a hand could even be played, a player named SHERWHYNOT was already being very belligerent to the other players, that by the sounds of it, he/she just played against in another SNG game. I just ignored him, as I mostly do Read more [...]

Step SNG

Sunday, February 8th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Strategy, Poker Tournament | 7 Comments

This article belongs to the Poker Tournament series. I recently stumbled upon the step SNG concept through an article I read on a Danish news website. Here a Danish SNG expert, Allan 'Sifosis' Bække, wrote some good tips on winning plays to beat the SNG steps. After investigating the step SNG system in more detail I decided to write a small review about it and include some of Allan 'Sifosis' Bække's tips on how to beat the SNG steps.  After reading about the step SNG concept I came to realize Read more [...]
