Tribe Poker Thread

I haven't deposit anything more than $10 in ages on internet poker sites. However, I'm willing to try a higher deposit of $100 and try to increase my chances of winning bigger.

What sites and which games should I try out with $100? I want to build the quickest bankroll and withdraw ASAP. Any suggestions for which games to approach?

Oops, I just saw this now. I used to bonus whore quite a bit so I've played at a bunch of sites. They all suck except for Full Tilt and Stars . The software is unplayable and the traffic is terrible at most other sites.
Is this still true? Looking to start playing online again...

Bumbaclat, I need help with game selection on these sites. Are you mostly playing cash games or Sit & Go/Tourneys? If so, what levels or the amount for buy-in?

I want to deposit $100 instead of $10 bucks this time and see where it gets me.

Always cash because that's my strong suit. Decide what you like better and play nothing but that. Switching between tourneys and cash fucks up your game if your fundamentals aren't super strong in one of them.

I play zoom or rush - $50 tables. I play 4 at once and crank out 1400 hands an hour. Use Table Ninja for playing faster. Also use Poker Tracker or Hold 'Em Manager but read a tonne about using the stats or it's somewhat useless.

^Thanks again for your wise sage-like tips. I still don't consider myself a "winning poker player"; however, I am stubborn/stupid and just want to get better and know game selection is very important. Been playing mostly cash games myself.

Just started getting into the cheapest SNG's online and want to get good at these. I'm practicing for my very first live SNG with the stacks starting with 3000 chips and the entry fee is $80. Does anyone have any recommendations for online poker sites with the cheapest SNG's that have stacks starting with 3000 chips? I'm just trying to gain some experience and hoping to simulate a real SNG before I plunk the $80 entry fee. LOL

I've been grinding free SNG's on Full tilt with my FTP points. start with 1500 though. most are for tickets into other tourneys with good $.

had a 10% piece of a few friends at the WSOP. 2 of the 3 cashed, one cashed for 40k, the other for 8k in the 1500 Superstack event.

apparently the guy who lost won his spot in the tournament via a satellite and the other guy is some zillionaire CEO. makes it even worse.

Stopped playing poker for awhile, but from February 7 to 16 I started playing some cash games again because Fallsview Casino hosted a WPT event and I got back into the game. Now I've got the poker bug again and this year for 2015 I'm probably gonna try playing my first MTT ever after this WPT sparked my interest in the game again.

WPT | Tournaments | WPT Fallsview Poker Classic (TV)

I actually attended the WPT $5000 main event final table filming for TV. It was fun to watch and be there ( I watched 6 hours of taping in the audience), but like one the WPT employees asked how the crowd was doing in the audience. She made a funny joke, but so true what she said "The whole poker game in its entirety is like watching paint dry!". So true, on TV we get the highlights and watch only the good hands that didn't get edited out. LOL

My guess the episode will air probably 4 to 6 months from now.

Me and the lady had our Niagara trip this weekend. I sat down at the 1/2 table, and got two pairs. Queens, and Fours. The other guy had rockets, and on the river he got a a pair on the table. Lost the bad beat.

But for what it was worth everyone enjoyed my short stay. lol. I'm actually pretty disappointed in my poker ability lately. When you're down, your down.

Did the hotel overnight, and everything :)

lol reminds me of the time a buddy had the bright idea to pinch the ass of a playboy bunny walking by in the Playboy club. he didn't have any money to walk out with, and he wasn't given a choice, and then shown the back elevator out. shown: dragged. he hasn't been to vegas since.
