I had been following the trials and tribulations of Fulltilt and noticed a few forums mubbling about being able to download Fulltilt play money for US. So I downloaded it a few minutes ago and was able to use my same screen name and password as before.  I was prompted to change my password.  I only see play chips amount and not seeing what I had in real money.  I have a screen shot of my real money account before closure of the site in 2011.  I hope some time in the near future they will post a way to get refunded the real money.  

A Message for our US Players

Residents of the United States and related territories cannot play for Real Money at Full Tilt Poker. However, you can still enjoy the Full Tilt Poker experience at our Play Money-only site Full Tilt Poker.NET

I had not played one of these and made it to the money in a while. Had my Iron Man point, so I did not feel like playing Rush or ring tables, so I registered for the USA Freeroll. It was a long tourney, but I came away with a little bit of the prize pool. I may have done better, but for some reason KK is not my hand tonight. I lost with it twice at the final table, each time the person caught the 1% out they needed to win. LOL. I will surely play this again in the near future. X

OMG!  Foolstilt is really getting my goat.  I don't blame the player once they got the second pair, but gee whiz the nine on the river was some serious over kill.  X

The chasing is the main reason I don't play limit holdem. It gives the player a cheap peak at the turn and river. So if on a draw the pot odds will always be ok for a call. I like no limit holdem for many reasons, but the chase is on in that type of game more than before. I have a few examples and I would like to hear your take on the chasers.

  1. AA vs JJ, Flop K, Q, A, all rainbow. JJ chases for the straight when the ten hits on the river and it did not make a flush, do you still call with AA or fold? Well of course I bet out and had the lead the whole time and I was betting pot each round.
  2. JJ vs AK, Flop 2, 5, 10, all rainbow. Turn is a 9 still rainbow so no flush options. I have the lead and beat pot each round. River is a King, I bet pot and get pushed all in. Now most of my chip stack is in so I call hoping he has the 9 or 10. Nope called me down to spike the king on the river.


So how do you avoid the chasers? I don't have a clue. LOL. I have pushed all in on the flop and AK still called, even had 22 call all in on a A, J, 10 board and I had QQ. Least to say a deuce came on the turn and river. Very random. LOL. X

After the flopped boat the player did exactly what I wanted. Being short stacked, hitting the flop was very important to me. Hit it hard two, just could not fend off the queens. Runner Runner is sooooo random. I was three from the money and with this short a stack I wanted to push and should have. My mistake, trying to maximize on that flop. X

After reading the interview posted by Zimba, I decided to find the email address of Thuy and let her know how she has inspired me with her fight with cancer.  She sent me an email back today.  I am glad that she took the time out of her busy life to drop me a few words.  Only other poker player that did this for me was Daniel Negreanu.  His email was very long, but informative.  I like that even though they are very busy people they take the time to answer the email of a low-limit grinder such as myself.  I feel special.  LOL.  X

 

Email that I sent to Thuy:

 

Just wanted to drop you a line and say I really enjoyed your interview on Pokercurious.  http://www.pokercurious.com/interviews/view/thuy-doan-interview/.  I am a female player and I know how hard it is to get respect from male players.  You are an inspiration and I am glad you are stronger than the cancer.  Love the pictures of the guys shaving their heads.  Very thoughtful act on their part.  I am a low limit grinder and freeroll player, but hope to some day play in the WSOP.  I live NLHE and I play almost everyday.  I read a lot of poker articles, blogs, forum post and poker books.  Not many good books about online poker, so I mainly read for general strategy, odds and position play.  Hope you have a great day and keep grinding.

 

Email from Thuy:

 

Hi Frances, I'm always delighted to hear about women who have a passion for poker. I wish you the best with your journey. My best advice would be to be disciplined, try to spend time around good players, and have fun away from the tables.    Best wishes, Thuy

Been back playing a little poker thanks to a staking partner. I have a little gravy from a KO tourney so I have a small bank besides the staking bank. TY for good people that you meet online. LOL.

Well as the title says "HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN TO QUIT PLAYING A SESSION?" I ran pretty even until a few big hands that doubled me up and I was wandering if I am running good should I stay or go bank and try to double again. I know how variance can entice you to call with AA and get beat to death. LOL. It happens I know, but do you get a feeling that it is coming or no? Bankroll management has to be followed to the letter to keep from going broke, but do you take the chance of keep playing after you have tripled or doubled you buy-in? Thanks in advance for all comments. X




1st HAND:

This is a hand from Rush yesterday. I decided to use my gravy from the KO tourney to get my bank up. I know this was a really bad call, but after the cards where turned up I was hopeful. If I hit a nine I could take down a nice size pot and luckily I did. Now if I had the AA I would be pissed, but imagine two players with aces. I know they talked junk about my call, but I had not seen many pairs and I know this is a poor excuse for the call, but it is called gambling. Now if I had bought in full I would have taken a even bigger pot. After this hand I played a few more and actually limped with AA a few hand later. I won the pot with a bet on the flop and turn, but was not willing to lose my whole amount on the aces.

2ND HAND

In this hand I was on the button and decided to re-raise for the blind steal and got called. He checked the flop giving me a chance to take the lead on the betting. If he would have bet that flop I may have folded, but with the check he let me see the turn on my terms. After the double up I decided to take a break.

I must admit I have been moaning a lot lately. LOL. Well I really should be kicking my own butt. I have really been playing awful lately. No patience and no fold power. Can it be that hard to be consistent? Sure it can. Some days you go to the felts with all intentions of winning and lose. Nothing you can do but play your best every game. Lately I have not been playing my best and finding all sort of excuses as to why. Well no more excuses, I play to win today. GL to all. X
