USA Friendly Poker rooms.

Internet poker is alive and well in the US. Only a dozen medium to large poker rooms have stopped taking American players due to the signing of the internet gaming law by our beloved President Bush. Obviously, the largest being Party Poker followed by Poker Room, Hollwood, Titan, Noble, CD Poker, Pacific/888, Empire, Poker Champs and a few others.

Personally, I rarely played at Party Poker, therefore, I have missed Poker Champs, CD Poker and Hollywood the most. However my overall poker experience remains nearly the same. I love to play at these USA friendly poker rooms: Bodog, The Gaming Club Poker, Full Tilt Poker, Poker Stars,, Absolute and Doyle's Room. Some of the little guys include: Bugsy's Club, Wingows, Mansion, Gamesgrid, Poker World and many more listed on my site.

Poker players from the US adjust to internet gamings laws

Poker players from the US adjust to internet gamings laws
Poker players from the US adjust to internet gamings laws and the affective change of well established habit. The signing of new gaming laws have coerced a baker's dozen of my favorite poker rooms to close their businesses to most if not all US customers. To them I say cowards. These fine folks have effectively passed billions of dollars unto the competion out of fear for the heavy hand of the US government. I don't blame them. However, I do applaud heartily the fortitude of the remaining online poker sites who remain open to us poker crazy americans. We will reward you greatly.
For the the kind players whom are from outside the US poker ring of fire. I hope you enjoy playing amongst yourselves for a bit and develop a unique style that can become more competitive for us damn yankees. Does my jealousy show?
As a webmaster and affiliate to many of these affected poker rooms I am seeing lots of movement in peoples habits. They are changing poker rooms alot. For me this good. I have gained 200 new players this past week alone. Thank You! Myself, I have changed poker rooms frequently too. Trying to find the best fit for moi is not easy. I need good freerolls, big bonuses and decent play in the rings and mtts. I find something unique in each poker room. I would tell you which rooms I'm favoring right now, except my choices are fairly clear perusing my site.

Quick strategy for playing freeroll tournaments.

-patience, patience, patience.

First hour, play only premium hands out of position A-A to 9-9, AK suited to 10-J suited, AK unsuited to 10-J unsuited. The latter hands play with great caution. On the button, play all premium hands aggressively, middle hands carefully. In the blinds you can play a little looser with hand selection if nobody raises. Keep your flops seen percentage under 12-13 if possible on the average. If your cards a rushing good then play them. Otherwise you may not have a good hand to play for an entire hour. Don't worry be patient!

-selective aggression.

Second hour, loosen up a bit and take a chance once in a while. Never go all in when you don't have the nuts. Have a goal in mind of playing into the top 10 or 20 places. So, be selectively aggressive. If you have a good hand then be aggressive with it! Keep your flops seen percentage under 15 if possible on the average. Try to get your chip stack 20-40 times the big blinds so as you don't become short stacked. Take as many small pots as possible.

-when opportunity knocks.

Last hour, pay more attention to loose and tight players. The big stack is trying to get bigger and the small stack is trying not to bust out. Look for opportunities to take blinds and try to finish slower than the others risk less than your opponents until you get to the goal of top 10 or 20. Then, get aggressive. Play all premium hands a fast as you possibly can, bet strong. play middle hands strong. And be very careful of potential traps. Traps will get you busted just a bit quicker. So play hard and fast but be wary. Flops seen percentage should still be under 20 if you get good cards often,under 16-17 if your cards are junk.
Good luck at the freeroll tables... -240,000 hands played since nov. 2005-

Poker isn't a team sport

Poker isn't a team sport
Soft playing your friends is a form of collusion
Home News Tribune Online 07/21/06
If you want to do your friends a favor, don't do it at the poker table. Take them out for a beer if you win the tournament. In fact, buy them dinner. What you can't do, though, is give anybody a break — ever.

Yes, it's true. I would check-raise my own mother if it meant that I could beat her for all of her chips. The same holds true for my brother, my wife, and any professional poker player friends of mine.

Frankly, that's the only way to act at the poker table.

At the World Series of Poker, players are randomly seated at one of many tables. In past years, though, exceptions were made in special circumstances. For example, if a husband and wife were seated at the same table, one of the two would be moved to another table.

However, if both players happened to make the final table, then obviously they'd have to play there, which can make for an unpleasant situation. Along these lines, there is one form of cheating that you may not be aware of. In fact, you might be doing it yourself.

Have you ever been in a poker tournament and decided to take it easy on a buddy who was down on his luck? Let's say, you had the absolute nut hand, but checked to him because you didn't want to beat him. That's cheating. That may sound harsh, but it's the truth. Even though you might not see any harm in it, and your intentions are all well and good, soft playing your friends is a form of collusion. It's called team play.

Soft playing really is a big deal. If you're caught doing it in a tournament, whether it was intentional or not, you might receive a penalty. Tournament officials can put you in the penalty box for an allotted amount time or even disqualify you from the tournament. More often than not, the offending player doesn't feel like he's cheating. He just doesn't understand why it's wrong to take it easy on somebody.

Tournaments generally pay 10 percent of the field. Survival is critical; the longer you're alive in a tournament, the closer you get to cashing in on a payday. By slow playing and not betting your strong hands against a friend, you're hurting every remaining player's chance of cashing in.

Let's look at an extreme example to help illustrate why this practice has no place in poker.

It's a No Limit Hold'em tournament where the top 27 players are in the money; there are currently 28 remaining. The next player eliminated gets nothing at all — the infamous bubble. Now, suppose you're the chip leader, in the big blind, and have a huge stack. The blinds are at $500 to $1,000. Your buddy, conversely, is the shortest stack with just $1,500 in chips. He decides to go all-in, raising you a measly $500 more. You look down at your cards and see A-K.

With your big slick, it's very likely you'll eliminate your buddy if you call. In fact, even if you were dealt 2-7 offsuit, it would still be correct to call, based on pot odds.

However, let's say you decide to be a nice guy and let him have the $1,500 in blinds, allowing him to double his chips to 3,000. Well, you've just cheated all the other players in the tournament.

If your pal now happens to make it into the money, he'll be taking a spot that likely should have been someone else's. Sure, giving the pot away didn't hurt you much, but by letting your buddy have it, you've made a world of difference to his stack, and to the integrity of the game.

Poker isn't a team sport. It's every player for himself, and it simply has to be that way. I realize that it can be uncomfortable to knock out your friends, but the alternative is flat out cheating. It's your responsibility to play hard against all of your opponents, even if you have a relationship with them.

If you want to do your friends a favor, don't do it at the poker table. Take them out for a beer if you win the tournament. In fact, buy them dinner. What you can't do, though, is give anybody a break — ever.

House passes bill to limit online gambling

Updated: 2:32 p.m. CT July 11, 2006
WASHINGTON - The House passed legislation Tuesday that would prevent gamblers from using credit cards to bet online and could block access to gambling Web sites.

The legislation would clarify and update current law to spell out that most gambling is illegal online. But there would be exceptions — for state-run lotteries and horse racing — and passage isn’t a safe bet in the Senate, where Republican leaders have not considered the measure a high priority.

The House voted 317-93 for the bill, which would allow authorities to work with Internet providers to block access to gambling Web sites.

To enforce that ban, the bill would prohibit credit cards and other payment forms, such as electronic transfers, from being used to settle online wagers. It also would give law enforcement officials the authority to work with Internet providers to block access to gambling Web sites.

Reps. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and Jim Leach, R-Iowa sponsored the bill. They successfully beat back an amendment to strip out exemptions in the legislation for the horse racing industry and state lotteries.

Goodlatte called that “a poison pill amendment,” aimed at defeating the larger bill.

Critics argued that regulating the $12 billion industry would be better than outlawing it. The Internet gambling industry is headquartered almost entirely outside the United States, though about half its customers live in the U.S.

Other critics complain that the bill doesn’t cover all forms of gambling. They point to exemptions they say would allow online lotteries and Internet betting on horse racing to flourish while cracking down on other kinds of sports betting, casino games and card games like poker.

“If you’re going to support legislation that is supposed to ’prohibit gambling,’ you should not have carve-outs,” said Andrea Lafferty, executive director of the conservative Traditional Values Coalition.

Other conservative and antigambling groups are supporting the legislation, sponsored by Reps. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and Jim Leach, R-Iowa.

John Kindt, a business professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign who has studied the issue, calls the Internet “the crack cocaine” of gambling.

“There are no needle marks. There’s no alcohol on the breath. You just click the mouse and lose your house,” he said.

Congress has considered similar bills several times before. In 2000, disgraced lobbyist Jack Ambramoff led a fierce campaign against it on behalf of an online lottery company.

Online lotteries are allowed in the bill passed today, largely at the behest of states that increasingly rely on lotteries to augment tax revenues.

Pro-sports leagues also like the bill, arguing that Web wagering could hurt the integrity of their sports.

The horse racing industry also supported the bill because of the exemption it would get. Betting operators would not be prohibited from any activity allowed under the Interstate Horseracing Act. That law written in the 1970s set up rules for interstate betting on racing. It was updated a few years ago to clarify that betting on horse racing over the Internet is allowed.

Greg Avioli, chief executive officer of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, said the mention of horse racing in the bill is “a recognition of existing federal law,” not a new carve-out.

He said the racing industry has a strong future in the digital age and acknowledged the bill would send Internet gamblers to racing sites. “They’d return to the one place they can bet legally,” Avioli said.

That’s what some critics say is unfair.

“Somehow we find ourselves in a situation where Congress has gotten in the business of cherry-picking types of gambling,” complained Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla. Wexler had tried unsuccessfully to include exemptions for dog racing and jai alai, both popular in Florida.

The Justice Department has taken a different view on the legality of Internet betting on horse races. In a World Trade Organization case involving Antigua, the department said online betting on horse racing remains illegal under the 1961 Wire Act despite the existence of the more recently passed Interstate Horseracing Act.

The department hasn’t actively enforced its stance, but observers say it is possible the agency and the racing industry could face off in court in the future.

Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., is leading support for the ban in the Senate. The issue has so far not been debated in that chamber this year.

I have a new freeroll forum site up at... -please join, please post
check it out!!!

I'm trying a new strategy hoping to win 1st place in some of numerous freeroll tournaments I enter each and everyday. I'll aim for the least number of hands played possible. So, I'll try to get the preflops seen down to between 5-10% the hour or two. For the final hour, I'll aim for 10-20% or less preflop. Final table is usually dog-eat-dog so no rules here.

Anyway goal #1 is to make top 10.
If Goal 1 is achieved then I'll play more aggressively at the final table.

New Poker Players

Hello New Players
I was a new player 6 months ago except for getting terribly beaten at my local card room.
I have learned to play with confidence and the assurance that I now know what I am doing.
My method for learning is to play online free roll tournaments. Play for free -making real $$.

First I suggest playing for play chips at any online poker room. Full Tilt Poker is where I began.

Then sign up for some free roll tourneys. After you have played enough hands you too will feel
that you can play with anyone -anytime - anywhere. This process takes some time maybe 1
month, maybe 6 months. It all depends on if you are a quick study or a slow methodical learner.
Remember the pros have played for 10, 20 or even 30-40 years, so they will always have that
advantage over the new player. But you do still see many new folks climbing the ranks in the pro poker world, most of them have been playing online. Playing online is so much more fast paced than playing at a sit down table. Playing online you can play 3,4,5 games at one time. So you must make decisions quicker than if you were seated at a table. I promise you that, with time, you will become a better and more confident player. I would guess about 100,000 hands is a good start.

Protect Your Rights -Email From

June 2006
Protect Your Rights
Dear readers,
You are not alone in your enjoyment of the great game of poker. More than 70 million Americans play poker and roughly 23 million play the game online. An American tradition and a true game of skill, poker is part of the heritage of the United States. From presidents and generals, to Supreme Court justices and even members of Congress, poker has tested the intellect of Americans for nearly 150 years.
Remarkably, if some members of Congress have their way, playing poker on the Internet may soon come to an end, forcing you to fold your hand. Legislation moving through Congress right now seeks to ban Americans from playing Internet poker by deputizing banks and Internet service providers to keep you from accessing poker websites.
You can take a stand to protect your right to play poker and the American way. We encourage you to contact your local Congressman today! You can help turn back Congress' efforts to ban online poker.
Support the efforts of such organizations as the Poker Players Alliance, a growing group of more than 25,000 poker players, who are taking a stand against this legislation and working to promote and protect the game. The Poker Players Alliance is asking Congress to consider a more rational and realistic approach to online poker, one that would create a regulated environment for online play, and similar to what the U.S. government has done for brick-and-mortar casinos.
You can contact your state and local officials through websites such as
Help keep the tradition alive - both online and off.
Sincerely,The PokerListings Team

Freeroll Whoring

I've been playing freeroll tournaments for about nine months now. Stick a fork in me I'm cooked. I'm owned, can't get enough of that sweet leaf that is online poker freeroll tournaments. It's not for the money. It's not for my thrifty bargain hunter mentality. It's not for all the awesome gamely players I encounter banging their heads on the tainted felt. It's not for the endless loop de loop of the coveted button chasing the bankroll busting blinds.It is for the donkey who bets in every position with any posible combination of cards hoping to bust the "bluffer" with his 8-2 off betting that his 3-4-5-6 & 7 will fall before his demon eyes, not necessarily in that order. It is for this ass who may very well win this freeroll tournament with it's 15000 participants. It is for the 67 centavos. It is because this same jackel with be at the $2-$4 experiencing ups and downs of mamouth proportions. It is because I respect the button, the blinds big and small. I enjoy an occasional well played bluff/bluffer. It is because I enjoy the art of pushing the chips in the most efficient manner possible in order maximize the gains and minimize the losses to the oh so nefarious one. It is for that very moment you know you have the nuts and you know how to use them.

My Freeroll Poker History

My Freeroll history.
I started playing freerolls at Full Tilt Poker back in november of 2005. Then I tried Bet Fred, Noble,, Titan, Pokerroom and Holdem. By January I found PokerWorld, Bugsy's Club, Eurolinx, Hollywood, Celebrity and Absolute Poker. February's new finds were Bodog, Poker Champs, CD Poker and Poker4ever. Now it's June and I play everyday at Bodog, CD Poker,, Full Tilt, Poker Champs and Poker4ever because these sites have the best freerolls for my needs. Occassionally I still play at all the other sites lest I find a moment when I'm not in a freeroll tournament. Lately, I've been in the money 2-3 or 4-5 times a day, from 30-40% of all freerolls played. So I guess with time this freeroll thing can help a player's game along. 9 months running I'm feeling fairly confident in my game. I hope to report in the near furture that I'm winning these freeroll tournaments. This has yet to be accomplished.

For those of you who are too good to play freerolls. I have just one example for you.Sitting with Chris Ferguson at a $40 Horse or Razz freeroll MTT is quite an experience for me.Rumor has it that "Jesus" turned $1 into $25000 there too.Ooops that was 2 examples..Hehe

Thanks for your replies
Good luck at the tables
