I signed up under the username 'sante' and came 4th in a Freeroll and won $200.

When does that money get into your account?

usually pretty much straight away. I dont watch how long it takes anymore, ive got enough money to not have to :p

Freerolls are good to make easy money, never really many people in them anymore.

I tend to play the NL20 or NL50 table more. only started there middle of september....beginning of this month i won two freerolls back to back and had 2k - played the NL20 table and turned that into 10,000 in one sitting!

Lol, I just got done playing a NL Hold'em sit & go at Full Tilt.

I was about third in chips when I get AK in mid position. I re-raise with it, only to be re-raised. And then re-raised AGAIN. So now I'm ********ting myself. I'm thinking I'm probably up against A-A and K-K. But, I decide to call it, as its only play money, and you never know.

But no, 6-6 and 8-8. A re-raise and a re-re-raise with 8-8 AND 6-6? Damn. But, at least now I had a chance - but of course, no K or A hit.

But that really was an odd hand to say the least. At the same time I was playing a ring game and the guy seated next to me would do nothing but check. Slowplay everything. I even told him to mix it up as he's too easy to read. But people would come and sit down and get sucked right in. Ridiculous.

when you're hot, you're hot.

I played two freerolls at Casinofatcat last night - got busted miserably with 10's in the first one.

In the second one, i played conservatively - and was sitting on around 1400 chips (second to last) when i hit pocket aces. I was in the big blind, so i checked. Flop comes down A-7-7, so ive hit absolute gold - Full house - aces full of sevens. I bet pretty small (2 times the big blind) hoping to induce a few callers. Four people called, and then one absolute sucker went all in in front of me. Two people called him, and so did i. One turned over kings, the other queens. the person who pushed all in turned over A 7. I couldnt believe my luck!

Went on to win that tournament quite comfortably :D

Somebody want to make a Big Footy Team?
I would but due to my work i'm not regular enough with times i can play.

If somebody makes a team we all ready have a few players
I actually find this to be one of the better play money sites as people seem to care a lot more about their chips.

Allthough i lost $25K the other night then realised i couldn't just top up with a 100 to start again and had to start from $125 after logging into the members site

thats where being in a team comes in handy.

Instead of 100 + sponsors bonus, you get 200 + sponsors bonus.

Thats what i play with every day, rather than dipping into my coffers.

I had a brilliant night last night - came fourth in an AP freeroll....ticked off in the end, went all in with A K and a K on the flop, chip leader who had i had about 2/3 the chips of, called and flipped K 7. Low and behold - 7 on the river and im out. Dissapointed, but i got a seat in the weekly $1000 freeroll though by finishing top five.

If you want to join a team - you're more than welcome to join the team im in. We're pretty big (44 members already), one of the most successful teams in the whole site since its creation.

If you want to join - pm me on CFC (same username as here)

Well, the 300k I had in Full Tilt has been whittled down to just 99k in ONE FRIGGIN DAY.

I got the day off work, and since I don't get paid 'til next week, I decided to play some play money poker for the majority of the day. Bad mistake. I am in one of the biggest "no luck" ruts I've ever had since playing poker.

I got to the stage that one hand I had QQ and moved all-in to a big stack on a flop of undercards. He called with Ax and I said to him "you'll hit it" - and he did on the river. Ridiculous.

I have never lost this much in a day ever. I usually always make a profit. But today has just been horrible. I then just recently sat down to play Omaha Hi/Lo and was MURDERING this guy for a good hour. In one pot, I had two pair with no straight draw, but two flush draws on the board. I also had the nut flush diamond draw. I went raise-happy until I was all-in (it was Pot Limit), and he turned over nothing but a spade flush. The spade hit, and we were suddenly almost level in chips.

Very next hand, I pushed with the nut flush on the turn, and he paired the board on the river to hit a full house. Not good. The worst thing was he began taunting me about it, and couldn't even spell. So then I forced myself into a rematch, which I lost simply because he began raising me with anything and I could hit nothing.

Then we went to Hold'em to play heads up, and some people joined and the table quickly filled. I did well on that table, quickly doubling up. We then went to play heads up at another table, and first hand in he hits an inside straight on the river. Second hand I had K-Q and raised pre-flop, the Q hit the turn, I bet out, he raised with three hearts on the board - I told myself I couldn't possible be this unlucky - I pushed, and he flipped over the 8-5 hearts.

Not a good day, to say the least. I think I'll vent by hitting the casino tomorrow night.

I would have joined the Aussies but i couldn't decide if you were really after players or just offering because you felt obligated

we are after committed players. We have a great deal of players in our team....but not many of them play every day or so. Or even log in every day. Just logging in every day helps your team enormously.

Just bumped myself up another 'skill' level on Casino Fat Cat. Having over 30k in chips now apparantly classifies me as a 'cranberry' :eek:

today has been good. earlier today, won a freeroll, then went and won eight thousand chips in the ring games.
