So I am taking it easy right now, going to the gym every day and only playing smaller tournaments. These include invite-only freerolls, some satelittes, well nothing too big but it could give me a substancial bankroll if I take down one of them ha ha.
Crazy story happened recently. I was playing this freeroll on 888Poker
which for new players is alright. They have lots of freerolls and other cool promos, so a good place to start before you move to higher limits. I like how they improve their graphics, but for some reason they remove player notes so I have to add them while using my HUD lol.
Royal Flush Story
Funny store, I was playing in this freeroll where you can proceed to Day 2 and there you play for a 30,000$ prize pool (not bad considering that you are not investing anything). So I get this Royal Flush, quite happy since it gives me some extra chips and I didn't have one in years.
I survived in the tournament for a bit, but then busted before the end of it. Then literally next day I use another freeroll ticket and play the exact same tournament and BOOM.
What kind of ''weird casino slot trickery'' is this? Never had anything like this in the past. Had no quads or straight flushes inbetween. Is this all RNG? Well, I can't complain. In this last tournament I made it to Day 2 with an okay stack. I have a around 22-23k chips, when the average will be like 27-32k or so. So one double up and I will be ready to roll. Almost every player is a newbie, so the field is perfect for me. Wish me luck :)
My Experience with GGPoker Site
During Coronavirus pandemic GGPoker network has teamed up World Series of Poker and is now running a 100 Million Dollar WSOP Circuit Series. I love the field, love the fact that even small stake players have a chance to qualify and love the fact that you can grind poker on your mobile phone since HUDs are not allowed and you can see some basic stats + leave notes on your phone. It is 2020 but other poker sites still don't have such an option to this day. After the series I will decide what to do next, since I plan to actively go to the gym once it upens up again and will have to take a look at future GGPOKER tournament series. I hope they are going to be just as good as this one. This one is very juicy and even has golden WSOP rings for the winners.
As you can see I am having fun and recently got a royal flush after a very long time. On this blog year ago I added a picture of getting one, don't remember getting any after that. If you would like to join GGPOKER, please CLICK HERE and if you are an active player - send me an email and I will hook you up with a private rakeback!
Update: If you are a High Stakes Cash player and if you play close to perfect GTO, I would recommend being very careful and don't use any programs or charts, or you will get banned for sure.
I also recommend checking my friend Dara's Poker blog by clicking here: Doke's Blog .
I'm back, just before this Coronavirus madness, I played some Spin & Gos and a few MTTs, however, since now the gym is closed, I have to work out at home and poker sites are full with players, I will start playing more often. Since I work from home and work with two of my own websites and two online communities where I am an Administrator, financially I am doing alright. Currently playing on Winamax and BestPoker, sometimes a little bit on PartyPoker too. Totally stopped playing on PokerStars, this site is dead to me and it is currently trash. One of the latest additions to my blog will be poker site reviews and private rakeback offers.
Texas Hold'em Poker Training
I believe that I have enough experience and don't need any ''basic'' poker training. However, to keep up with the regular players, I am always watching Twitch Streams, YouTube Videos and participating in my local poker forum. Once I move up the ladder, I will also invest a little bit of money into Poker Training (No Limit Texas Hold'em only) so that I could play MTT tournaments better and would be sure that I did everything I could do improve and show my best game.
So depending how popular this blog gets, I will be posting here. Back in a day this blog of mine was mentioned on PokerStars.com and PokerStars blog so Google still loves it quite a lot. If I would put a little bit more effort, it would definitely be one of the highest-ranking English poker blogs on Google. Please let me know if you have tips and suggestions for my blog, would love to hear it and consider implementing.
So now I playing some MTTs but mainly focusing on Spins. Want to start slow and play 2 euro games and slowly build my bankroll for bigger games. While playing in these games I definitely have a massive edge and very rarely I meet an opponent which would be worth my respect. Going up the limits till 5/10 euro limits will be very easy and a 20 euro limit shouldn't be too hard either. And then it will be interesting to see what will happen after. Normally I can crush 10-20euro limits easily. However, I may stop playing Spins and will focus on playing MTTs and improving my poker strategy.
Currently I have some very nice private rakeback deals on various poker sites. For some of them I can even provide it for old accounts. Plus, if you play medium/high stake games and are active, I could also get you special freebies / gifts from time to time. So get in touch with me by sending an email to wernis @ wow .com and I will take care of you. It was nice writing this post after a break, I hope you guys will show me some low so that I could continue writing this poker blog full time.

Spin & Go Poker
Spin & go is a very popular online game on poker sites such as PokerStars, PartyPoker, Winamax and Unibet. 3 players are fighting for a random multiplayer which ranges from x2 to thousands. The classic version has a 500 starting chip stack and 3 minute blinds while a faster ''Flash/Nitro'' version has a 300 chip stack and 1 minute blinds.
Hey guys, a quick update. PokCas has recently added a few sweet poker guides and will add more in the future.
I think these are very useful, especially for recreational/new players.
Today I am going to review a nice addition in the Poker/Casino market, it is called PokCas and it looks very promising.
PokCas is the first platform to list TOP 5 casino and poker brands in the market, this platform picks only best of the best and looks at how they and new brands in the market perform. At PokCas, the top poker and casino brands compete by improving their own brand image. What is more, visitors are able to see their latest standings, reviews and most importantly, private promotions — some of them cannot be found anywhere else.
According to the founders of PokCas, “There was no middleman in the market which would list the best of the best. Many websites currently depend on the brands and cannot risk losing their partnerships while many others simply do not care enough and you can see that in their generic advertisement banners and content. Because of so many years of experience that we have, we knew that something had to be done.
The team behind PokCas knows the online poker and casino market inside and out. They are valuing customer needs and putting it on high priority that players receive an exceptional treatment. Thanks to PokCas platform, brands will benefit from the interaction with each other, while PokCas’ players will be receiving a VIP treatment.
Like no other platform, PokCas is independent, honest and willing to ensure that the top 5 MVPs are chosen based on the following factors: promotions, rakeback/cashback, trustworthiness/overall reputation, whither it is user-friendly, response to player feedback/ideas, innovation/uniqueness, game selection, software(s), traffic/popularity, overall engagement and other.
PokCas has partnered with PaySafe and is now offering everyone a free Neteller VIP Gold status. It does’t matter if you sign up via PokCas or if you already have an account, just get in touch with them by providing your Neteller account number — it is as simple as that. This is very useful, you get free Neteller VIP Gold for 12 months and then you can ask them to extend it for you once it expires (no other website is offering this).
Also, SIGMA (Malta's Igaming Summit) has published a review about PokCas so just that means a lot. Overall, I find this platform to be great and will be coming here to look for latest Poker promotions (I do not really play casino games) and of course if they will have more promos likes a free Neteller VIP Gold that would be fantastic. I hope these guys continue growing their platform.
It has been a while. I had a very long break from poker, graduated uni and now decided to play once in a while.
One of the sat wins recently:
Hey guys, it has been a while since my last post. I had a break from poker and blogging, and because I do not play full time, this happens from time to time. Some awesome things happened recently and I want to share that with you guys.
Currently I am playing in a few poker rooms, I mostly play satellite tournaments where I try to win decent tickets to participate in major tournaments!
I strongly recommend to listen the latest podcast with Chris Moneymaker http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/articles/PokerSchoolOnline-Podcast It is 30 minutes long, but you can skip it to 25:00, during this podcast my question was one of a few to be answered by Chris Moneymaker! How cool is that?
Also, Pokerstars has mentioned that this year's WBCOOP will be totally different, I'm really waiting for that and definitely going to participate!
Speaking about myself, during this year's WBCOOP series I have won: x1 22$ SCOOP Ticket (Bounty), x1 11$ SCOOP Ticket, x2 55$ SCOOP Tickets. I will try to win something from them, it will be the time when I have the exams to prepare for, but I will find some extra time and do my best!
I would like to thank Pokerstars for making such promotions; this is definitely the best poker related promotion I was ever involved in.
