Freerolling it all the way to the Nov 9

Just won my $19th dollar

Over the past month, I've been struggling to deposit funds into my poker accounts on Stars, FT, and a few other sites. A good number of them won't even let me sign up for an account since I live in Hong Kong.  


As a result, I've had to play freerolls and have been trying to convert countless hours into real money.  Any of you out there who's done this knows this is NOT an easy task and definitely not one that can happen right away. 

First off, you have the craziest plays out there since nobody really cares and there are more all ins that Jamie Gold can vocalize in every tournament.  So far, I haven't been able to turn any free entries into real dollars on Stars, but I've come close by qualifying for a real money tournament via the free rolls.  Too bad for me, I have a small gambling problem and forgot the date of the real money tournament and instead went to Macau and blew the 38,000 HKD I won in a tournament last month in one sitting at the Venetian with the worst string of cards I've ever experienced.  

After discovering Full Flush and Tiger Gaming, I've discovered they've got some great free rolls where they must be losing money.  They have two or more free rolls a day where you don't even need to qualify and they give up $100 and $300 respectively.  I haven't scored on the latter, but I booked about $14 in winnings that have dropped down to $12 or a little less after playing a few tournaments.  

On Full Tilt, Stars sister property, I finally broke through tonight by playing their $50 Free Roll for tournament credit.  I beat out 1200+ players to get a 55 cent tournament ticket that I could spend on a variety of tourneys.  I almost spend it on something that seems more likely to win, but just before turning in, I decide to spend it on one of the flips where we start with 81 players and basically 9 tables of 9 flip constantly until one of the 9 wins via constant all ins.  It was definitely a long shot, but I got lucky on my table and ended up on the final table. 

I started fast, strong and also got a good number of cards that helped me compete against 2 others for the top prize of $12.  I check them both out on Shark Scope and find out one of them (the smaller stack I end up taking out) is quite profitable lately on FT, Stars and Everest.  The other player is a loser on his accounts that have publicly available data, but for some real weird reason, he folds everytime I have a hand.  It's like he's an administrator or he has some software that lets him know when I have Kings or Aces.  It was the weirdest set of folds I've ever experienced.  I almost even take him down at the end with my A9o hits the 9 on the flop, but after the turn and finally, he does what Barry Greenstein titles his book - on the river.  It was annoying because I was truly kicking his butt minu the luck. 

Oh well, I still locked up $8 more bucks adding to my $11 or so over on Full Flush.  

As a result, this blog was created and is called Nothing 2 19.
