The 1K freeroll with three bounties sounds pretty good will definitely give it a go. Had two good sessions with the card hunt promotion up $15 profit but only the usual small prize of a dollar. Good luck to all mobsters in the 1K freeroll.
I was away last couple of days. These promotion looks decent but I really dislike the increase in rake from pokerstars. Not sure if I will deposit there again because this little 4% will make the game so much harder to beat. I'm really not a fan of Amaya even if it's a canadian company lol.
I could use the 1$ for the one with bounties but I don't wanna abuse your kindness
Was going good early on then pick up AJ hit top pair top kicker was up against a slow play of KK and small stack QJ and wins with two pair on river then next hand get QJ vs 99 small raise hit the Queen so shove and tthe 9 hit on the river and out
Same here, finished about 80th for 4$. I was in the top 10 for a while but then I only had 88, 77, 66 type of hands and I always had multiple callers when I raised. In the end I had to wait for the bubble to burst before I shove cause I only had 5-6 BB lol.
But that's poker, when it doesn't go your way you can just try to hold on for dear life!
Transfered 30 USD to a friend so the 50$ deposit didn't cost me much.
