Mark | Poker Projects

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 5$ MTTs

We didn’t have any high finishes ITM so our roll on FTP has dropped 13$ to 137$ 

We have experienced quite a few suckouts during our first hours on FTP which has confirmed our hypothesis that all online poker is rigged:-)

As for the opposition; tournament players on FTP seem to be of an overall higher quality compared to Titan poker. You rarely see preflop re-raises on Titan poker, but they happen quite frequently on FTP. Higher quality opponents doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing; their feel for the game means that higher poker level bluffs tend to be more likely to succeed, which is definitely an advantage during the later stages of tournaments. On the other hand, better opponents require that you play your A-game at all times and watch your back. Playing tournaments on auto pilot until the later stages simply won’t cut it on FTP.

We vow to come back stronger this week and get our BR over the original starting mark. At the least, we will go down swinging and embrace the risk to our grave:-)

Lemme guess, you guys are holding AK and some donkey pushes his whole stack with A4 and flops trips? Or you wait and wait watching idiots win hand after hand, you finally get AQ on the button, and the small blind has AK?
Been there done that. RIGGED. EVERY SINGLE HAND THEY DEAL. OH SURE, THEY THROW IN A STINKER ONCE IN A WHILE TO KEEP THE NUMBERS CLOSE TO EXPECTED.

I hope you are kidding Bill. “Poker is rigged” is getting old…
