Posted by Jaskosss: my strategy was pure simple, DONT GET INVOLVED IN HANDS YOU ARE NOT SURE OF, stay focused all the way and put pressure on yourself
So You are only playing Royal Flush???
I mean You can almost never be really sure about a hand in Holdem, because most of the times You wont hold the nuts and can be beaten by the river. I lost so many hands to people lately who where behind AND had fewer outs left to beat me than I had to further improve my hands. River Comes - and they get lucky.
You just can't take a six hour sesion and calculate Your future results on it. If You where lucky in this session then Your next one might be worse and You will loose the first 3, 4 or 5 heads up games.
If You are taking half Your stack to the table then You are almost sure to go broke soon, because two losses in a row WILL happen....
Of course You can get lucky enough to go from 5 to 5000.... But chances are that You wont. This style of playing for fast money is like playing lotteries. Sure there is one lucky guy almost every week who goes from 5 to 5 million. But 25 million others players loose....
now that I've explained to you that I won 350 in 6h starting of from 5
As I see it You have explained how You lost $5 in 6 hours and 15 min. You havent won anything or have You cashed out 350 bucks???
Posted by banmoca: It will give me a solution, which could take effect. Maybe to you for a dumb, but I think it would work for websites to rake back. 5 friends will gather players each deposit $ 50. Then play a Heads Up for $ 20 +1, each among you will give money to one another. In a rake of 30% is 6 $ - 1 $ (fee) = $ 5 win in a minute. 10 min $ 50, will double the money. Let's say that we add the $ 50 in one hour (so as not to be caught) in 10 hours you $ 500. I have not tried it but I think it would work. It matters to be a larger number of players, like 5, then will make a table game to know how to play without any problems from the website. I think $ 500 in a day is enough to not play amounts greater than $ 20 so as not to be spies. Lots Good luck! If someone tested scheme to give the news here. I do not have 5 friends, poker players, nor as part of an unknown
I think You dont understand rakeback. In a $20 + $1 game YOU would get 33 cents if YOu have 33% Rakeback.
Rakeback only means getting back what You paid as a fee to the pokerroom, so in this example the fee is $1 and YOu get 33% of that back . That's 33 cents.
Even if Your friend refunds You the $20 that You loose to him ( or You refund him if You win ) then You have made a loss of 67 cents. SO the more You play this way the more You loose...
