Sportsbook has been good to me over the years as far as college football goes, but i recently switched over to OddsMaker.com due to the reward points and the referral system....

last night i started playing in their poker room and have been doing well, havent tried to cash out yet as im on a roll but game play and variety seem to be in order....

yea, OddsMaker uses the same poker skin as Sportsbook.com. But I can't play on Oddsmaker because they are dicks. You have to send them a copy of your ID in order to cash out and such, so I did but never cashed out. By the time I played there again and actually did try to cash out the license I gave them had expired and I got a new one. But instead of letting me send them a new one they just decided to suspend my account and no matter what I say to them they won't fix it. They claim its because other sites on the network still have me suspended, which is simply not true. Fuck OddsMaker.

Had this beauty of a flop earlier in a $5 sit n go



The sweet thing was the other guy flopped a flush too and all I had to do was call him 3 times and he was all in.

yea. when you play a lot of Sit n Go's you tend to play against the same people quite often, and this guy is actually a regular. it doesn't take a lot to get him to go all in in the first place, so this was just laughable

thats the typical payout for a 9-10 person sng, but this was just a 6-person double up tourney. I just made a small deposit and was working on building a bankroll. These tourneys only have 6 people, and the top 3 just double their money so I just won $10. Slow and steady..

I've given up even trying to find a new online poker home. I've been playing nothing but live tourneys and leagues. I won the last league I was in, which payed a $3,500 package to represent the league in a $1,500 WSOP event in Vegas. I played and finished in 55th place out of 2,900 people, which got me $9K. I would've done better but I was card dead for the last 3 hours, which really sucks when you're a few levels away from day 3 of the event. Next year....

yea, sucks it wasn't worth more, but it's still cool when it happens. This is actually the 2nd Royal Flush I've flopped. The first was about 8 years ago on Party Poker right around when this whole online poker thing first started

i hit a royal early in a 9 man for big and didn't even break the bubble..
i also had a royal on a ring table and had no callers..
other than being super rare, it's rarely an awesome thing to hit a royal.....

it's not like video poker where it pays 1500:1 and you walk away rich...

Wonderful. Any glimmer of hope my wife had about seeing the 5grand+ that FTP owed her has gone up in Ponzi smoke. Love it.
