I Just thought I would share a brief moment of so called poker life...LOL......Anyways I got my first online Royal Flush yesterday while playing in a free roll so it wasn't worth any thing but the pot, but that was so cool, all hearts right from the flop, I was holding the 10h,Qh, and the rest just turned on the flop, I slow played, and did my best to play weak....the other fishes didn't bite........but I had to show them...... Then a couple of hands later I Got four of a kind 9, but that wasn't enough to win the tourney, but still was very cool...........STILL CAN"T WIN ............... I do make Final tables, but only play in free rolls (trying to start a BANKROLL) something happens, don't know what but .................. Everything just go's wrong..............My game has improved a lot thanks to the advice I got from some of you here MOB......... Always got my eyes open and hears............for good advice.......................

Iv had a few now, but the funny thing is its hard to make money on this unless someone is unlucky to have str8 flush or a fh, have you not got a bankroll from BRM, or do you just like the freeroles(good for practice) I remember winning my first 1, 4-5 houres of play and was paid in bonus $ , I got to via bounties but i was maddddd, they now pay for real (UB)

im still waiting for my first one in texas holdem, but i had some in omaha H/L. its hard to get cash when you hit one, except you have a very loose image or people put you on bluff. you can get that by playing some donkey hands in the beginning; but thats not without risk. if the other players get what you are up to, you just dropped chips on them. and in an MTT you might get reseated before your "investment" pays out. (you of course also gain some chance to donk out on someone...)
prejudices are a good thing too. people apparently tend to put germans and frenchies on bluffs often. i rarely have probs to get calls or squeeze money out of my opponents, but my bluffs regularly go wrong...

congrats on royal, i got 1 also in a weekly welcome on hollywood poker which i finished 5th lol and won $10 I dont play many freerolls now a days but have won quiet a few and placed in top 10 on poker room. The most important factor is to stay patient and wait for a sure hand even if you have to fold cards such as AJ AQ e.t.c and people seem to look how many chips the chip leader has and get to play hands that are not gonna win. the big factor is stay patient as patience is a virtue dont worry if the chip leader has 50 k more chips thats nothing once you get to final table and blinds go up things can turn in your favour in minutes i have many time won a tourney being behind 150 k in chips. patience patience patience

not everyone has got a royal flush.ive had 2 in live play and 3 online.ive played with people who have never got one in 25 years of playing.even some of the pros have never got one.so it is an achievement.sometimes poker is all about luck.

i lost with quads too a royal flush , and it wasnt amazing because i wished i was sitting at a bad beat jackpot table. but its unbelievable how many straight and royal flushes i already had had. especially on pokerstars god you see quads and straight flushes like twice a day
