    CS badly lacking a general poker thread imo.

    Anyway, myself and Jake have signed up for a freeroll starting at 6:42pm on Pokerstars, has a maximum of 9000 people which has been filled. The top 72 players of this tournament get a satellite to a Weekly Round 2 tournament of their choice, the Weekly Round 2 tournaments are of a variety of games such as Triple Stud and Hold'em Poker. Prize pool of $2000. :cool:

    There's also a Daily 90K Saturday freeroll tournament which has a limit of 40K people, that got filled yesterday. It's at 3:35am.. out of 40K people, 8th - 72nd win $5.50 and the top 7 get a satellite to the proper Daily 90K which had a prizepool of $120K last time, it's a guaranteed $90K + buyins anyway. I'm gonna stay up for that one. 3:35am AEST, sounds good, nothing like early morning poker ya.

    Freerolls are so gun (for cheap ****s and 15 year olds). I reckon if I enter enough of them I'll get a satellite into a cash tournament sooner or later. :cool:

    About $100 up on PKR this year, lost a wee bit last time I played which dragged it down.

    Entered the NZ one last night for full tilt poker. Came 9th out of 729 players. Won $3.

    I'm in tonights one atm, 27/342. Up $12 atm. Placed in a couple tourneys today too.
  4. Blake BE Quilty

    Good effort, are these freerolls? Presuming so if you only won $3 from finishing 9th - that, or they are like 10c buyins.
  5. Gazza GJ Weaver

    That was freeroll. They are on each night at 8:40pm so it's ideal. Was up till 1:30am last night though.
  6. Colesy BL Hornby

    Add me on pkr son

  7. Blake BE Quilty

    I might have to try Full Tilt, never used it before as I'm far more comfortable with PokerStars and have never seen a reason to change. If there are decent freerolls though I may as well jump on.

    What was top prize?
  8. Athlai JJD Heads

    New internet cap will see me not signing into PKR for quite sometime. ****ing telecom.

    I was on pokerstars but then remixed it over to ftp.
  10. Colesy BL Hornby

    Haha, fair enough. I havent played for money for ages. Rage quit it so hard when i got donkyed.

    I had q10 of spades raised the pot preflop

    Flop was q 10 7

    The 7 was a spade so the flop was awesome. I bet the pot which was quite a bit. 2 folds and 1 caller. Turn was 5, again a spade. I bet the pot again, again i get called.

    River was an 8, i went all in, other bloke went all in for less and turns over 6 9.

    I quit the tourney i was in and havent played since
  11. Athlai JJD Heads

    Used to play the FTP freerolls in my first year at uni, best placing was 2nd but the prize was significantly lower then.
  12. Incey BC Jacobs

    I lost >1,000,000 chips on party poker with pocket kings.

    And I ended with K K K K A

    Other **** ended with A A A A K

    Never played since.
  13. Colesy BL Hornby

    Yeah i used to play them too. I came 8th once outta 754 players. won **** all though, was a joke. I was chip leader at the time too, and the short stacks kept going all in for just over the blinds, i kept getting medium hands like k10, a8 j9 etc so i kept calling and getting hammered. Ended up going all in on AA and the other big stack called me with 88 and hit an 8 on the turn.
  14. Athlai JJD Heads

    There are some websites that would have given you a bed beat jackpot for that if it was cash poker. Where you would have won $10k or something and everyone at your table would get $1k or so. It was when any hand better than quad 8s lost, since it is soooooo unlikely.
  15. Jakester A Pimpkins

    Honestly just came to make this.

    Anyway, Blake and myself in a freeroll atm.
  16. Blake BE Quilty

    12 minutes into the freeroll on Pokerstars. The field is down to 5,393 from an original 9,000 players and my stack is $1,590 up from $1,500 to start. I've been playing pretty defensively though, keen to push on now and see how I go, would love to make top 1,000 even. 72 spots get a satellite so that's the ultimate goal but obviously it's not going to be easy.
  17. Gazza GJ Weaver

    On a break atm. 86/245, lost a couple of big hands.
  18. Blake BE Quilty

    Also on break, it's resuming in 3 minutes.

    Current position is 2,418 out of 5,370.
  19. Jakester A Pimpkins

    On a 10 minute break, only like 10 mins in.


    At $1145 after starting on $1500. Been getting shit flops but good pocket cards.
  20. Jakester A Pimpkins

    Gunna check out Full Tilt soon as well. Keen to get in on smaller freerolls. I wanna improve/get money from them and play real money sit and go's and shit.
