at Absolute Poker, i have about $13,500 - only started playing there about a fortnight ago, so im pretty happy. Mainly been creaming people on the sit and go's....absolutely killed one guy heads up.....had K J in the big blind....checked it.

Flop comes K K J, so i check it. Turn comes a Q, Check again, River, 10....other guy (who was slightly less than me) goes All in.....knowing that i had the nuts, i happily called him - and he turned over A K only to discover that he had been monstered by a Full Boat :D

Full Tilt - 300k. Mostly just play heads-up limit, so I'd probably only make 20k in one sitting.

Party Poker - 30k, all through sit and go winnings. Never used to play ring games there at all.

Oh, and one other site i play at as well....

Casinofatcat - i have just over 16,000 chips (they call them fatchips - its a team orientated site, you play as a team in leagues and stuff)

have only been there for about a month. Started with only about 1000 chips and lost them when i was still learning. Then i won a few freerolls and built myself up to where i am now (sixth in my team :D)

How many in a team?
Maybe we can create a Bigfooty team?

There are up to 40 in a team.

Signups for the next league have just finished - so the new team wouldnt be able to play league.

One thing i recommend. Play freerolls for a while before you play the cash tables. You need to build up a fair bit of a bankroll before you start the cash tables - they are basically all in monkeys on there.

Once you join a team - you get 200 chips for logging in every day, and another 25 for clicking on the bomb in the top right corner of the screen.

Every message board post you make earns you 7 chips (paid at the end of every month)

Im only on just under 20k there, but im slowly building up - been playing the high limit tables (NL50) for a while, and am starting to multi-table to maximise my earnings.

I've just started playing it now. Played some guy heads up for about ten minutes, and have doubled my bankroll to 1.5k. I may play some more later tonight.

So I played a "freeroll" at fatcat, or whatever, tonight, and dear god. I played two hands and was busted miserably.

Blinds 10/20 I raised with A-Q to 120 in a mid position and got FIVE callers. Well, I guess it's play money, or fat money, or whatever they call it, but god damn people will call with anything.

Flop came 8-Q-Q. I hit what normally would be a HUGE flop. So I decided to slow play it. Turn came a blank, and someone bet out under the gun. I smooth called. River was a nothing and the person under the gun pushed, and I quickly called. Flipped up 8-8 for a full house. Dear God.

Just unlucky there. She hit a miracle flop, but I guess you gotta play pairs.

Two hands later, I get 8-8 myself. I push for 70 measly fatchips, or whatever, left. Of course, the whole table calls. The flop comes 3-2-2. Checked all around. Turn comes a 6. I'm still in good shape unless someone has a 2, or 3-3 or 6-6. Some heavy betting on the turn, though, which was worrying. River comes a 4. More heavy betting.

Then, yep, you guessed it, someone turned over 5-7 to take it. 5-7 offsuit, by the way. 5-7? In tournament play? To a raise pre-flop? I mean, granted I was a short stack, but it's still three+ times the BB... with 5-7? I mean, had someone had a A-2 or K-2 I would have been content, but 5-7o?

If you don't hit 5-7 on the flop, or 5-5 or 7-7, or a straight, you're wasting your fatchips with 5-7o. More frustrating mediocre play money play.

And it makes you wonder - how do you call heavy turn betting with an inside straight draw? My god. Quite ridiculous. That's FOUR outs, at around 8% chance of hitting.

you guys are wasting your time and getting into bad habits playing these free money games IMO. You've been warned.
True but if you can realise and adapt to the different game style it's ok

ie: My home game does not compare to online real money or Casino play but i understand this and adapt my play accordingly

i ended up coming 9th - was horribly shortstacked and forced to go all in with a middling pair of 9's. got busted by k/3 offsuit with a K on the river. Dissappointing, but still - happy to make the final table from the position i was in.
