As I was far from the tables, this site, and all the poker´s news; I lost the announcement about Coral Poker merging in Party Poker platform. So, suddenly, Coral made an upgrade and change all his past menus. There disappeared all kinds of freerolls that I knew, all the micro buy-in tournament (I lost two tickets of $ 0,50), and most important of it: disappeared my loved "Winner takes all". There you have to play against 200 (more or less) villains, to win $ 10. I won 2 or three by year....but I loved it!

yeah if you don't keep tabs on your interests than these things can happen Blink i get the that if you beat 200 players and become first place (as the only place paid?) that's a awesome boost up but tournaments are pretty much same concept with the difference more places paid and depanding on which tournament bigger pay outs Thumbs Up

I'm sorry for you my friend and i didn't know it was a poker room like Coral from I Pkr Network will leave the boat and make alliance with Party P. I understood that this community will disappear and probably NetBet he will fall too. Good luck with your other games.

Yeah, this is it CALICUL The Coral Poker room followed another poker room (like Titan, Poker Match, etc) who abandon the iPoker Network.I don know what is happen there, may be a crisis or may be only business... And RLipman90, you have the reason about the long amount of tournaments that have better number of this. But I´m a freeroll´s hunter and the WTA was one of them that ran every hour in that room Sad

ah oke yeah if it run on the hour every hour yeah that isn't something most rooms do as a standard, so yeah i can relate why that is a disappointment and a let down for you. as for freerolls on party i don't really have a clue if there a any good ones or a lot of them. at the moment i saw that there are running some every hour but those are the starting point of a few more that eventually end in the million game. aren't familiar with any other room sorry i couldn't help you more as to find a suitable replacement

I Poker Network they should have been united, if there is a restructuring plan, but their marketing ideas probably were not or did not work. Many poker rooms and few customers. The best idea was if they were merging into one room.

Thanks for you kindness RLipman90, I tirelessly tour the net in search of freerolls, I'm an expert hunter, don't worry! And, by the way, I was playing in the freerols for the Million Tourney in Party Poker, but you have to be there a lot of hours to win a ticket that you can keep. CALICUL, you have the reason! If they merge all his little poker´s site in one biggest, might they solve his problem!

You don't have to cry for that and must to concentrate on the poker rooms, that offer the best free games, which are legal in your country. There you will play and win something good because money are the priority here. I hope you succeed to win.

Thanks for your wishes CALICUL! Fortunately, in my country is not any regulation for poker online, so I can choose all of the poker online offer in all the poker´s site. I beg that this situation continue without any change. Thinking in all the restrictions that you and the other mobbers has in your countries, I feel "in grace of God", but knowing that this can't last long... Blink

I used to play online bingogames on the Coral website, they always had great promos in their penny-pincher rooms but later they restricted hungarians to register and play there and since I just ended up going there for poker or bingo promotions before the merge I never looked back after...

I hope this alliance will be beneficial for Coral Poker players because i played there for a few months and i liked most of the I Poker network. I tried about 8 rooms and this room was good, even if he had some very bad beats. I liked it but now it becomes history.

Well I wish you can win there..But you are playin now? After the merge with Party Poker? It seems that the merge was for to sink the Coral poker. There aren´t any promotion, aren´t freerolls, I never play to the mini bingo plays but I think it disappears, and the tournament schedule seems like Party Poker´s schedule!

NetBet is the only solution for me, because all rooms of I Poker Network and Party Pkr are restricted in my country from 2016 for a period of 5 years. It is possible that next summer PP to come back but only if they play the license. Nobody can activate if the national gambling office of Romania did not receive those taxes.

I am not a good poker player , making many great mistakes that cost me , especially in shove fold decisions when short stacked , this hurts very much in a tournament deep run . First place is hard to get for me . Whenever I had played in the past for 1 paid place or 2-3 only paid places (tournament tickets or anything else ) I was not successful , only very very rarelly .
So '' winner takes them all '' is clearly a poker game I wouldn't choose to play all the time . Therefore I wouldn't miss it at all , lol .
But it's really cool if you contribute nothing like 1 cent or 10 cents and the prize is very big in the end , compared to the initial buy in . If you're good at it it's a nice opportunity . I would play them only for fun and extremelly aggressively .

Maragatero, my friend unfortunately i read that Party Poker does not have as many freerolls games as you like but i suggest you to play 888 poker or Netbet, if there is a possibility in Argentina and these rooms are not restricted in your country.

But Net Bet has almost nothing of it! The only thing why I keep in my PC, is for the birthday´s freeroll. You are playing there CALICUL? And, antonis321, in my case I have problems when I´m deep stack. I love the push or fold time! I think you can improve your play with some table of range for each position, and when you have: less than 15 blinds, less than 10, and less than 5. Look for it or ask here for a help Smile

Thanks for your advice Smile
Push fold is funny and relaxing , but you really have to know what you are doing , when , in which posts/seats/positions and with what hands not to push but instead to just raise and call reraise or shove , or instantly push/fold preflop ,etc . If you don't know , in tournaments especially , it's very disappointing , you might lose a nice run because you shoved the wrong hand , unnecessarily , all those hours going to waste .

Or in the FT , even worse , like yesterday in a well known ACR freeroll , Final table , me on the sb covering bb , I shoved my 20 blinds with pocket 77s , to the bigger stack (x4 my stack) on the table small raise from the co , the ***** tanked a little and called with A2o , Ace on the board , and won , out in 9th although half players had less stack than mine . Extremelly Disappointing and frustrating . I had the feeling 20 blinds were a lot , 77s not good enough , loose big stack player might call probably , couldn't find thef fold button .....

I have been searching for a good push fold chart , most free online are garbage . The first I had was one that was not allowed in pokerstars while you play , Jennyfear's one , and I was very happy feeling sure that I had found the one , which would help me incredibly in my
online poker game/tournaments . Got disappointed soon enough , I couldn't see the proposed push hands be rewarded , not even on the long run . I had the feeling that this chart for the online games was more loose than needed .

Anyway , I am searching for a good one , I have found one-two for hu , I need to study them and their right use . I will find if there's a chart in a respective well known site and I will pay membership to acquire it . Also I have to study some concepts about poker generally , I have countless , many unread books , as well as bookmarked site articles . I need to spend (a lot of ) time studying them , and then buy and use some poker tools which almost everyone uses , this will help me in myonline games very much

Good luck on the felt Smile

You are in the right way! Look for refferences and study the basic. And then you have to choose what kind of poker´s play you want/like or should you play. As you know, the tournaments have the attractiveness of the big prizes and the deception of the big variance. I like to play sit and go. There you have a good summary of the tournament´s style of playing, with less risk and little time spent. I like very much to chat about this. I opened a threat in the past but I didn´t find any interest Sad

Improvement is needed in order to have good or better results in tournaments , where decisions in crucial spots judge the successfullness or not of so many hours invested when deep stacked and deep run in tournaments .

Sng's I have played , won very few , I definetely want to try them more in the future , starting with the micros I play now , and who knows later . I will dedicate a part of my bankroll for this cause , probably on Stars one of these days , , it won't cost me anything in comparison to my banroll , but that's better to get some action at the tables and practice without big losses . If every goes as planned and well , I will be playing them a lot and play more expensive ones .If not , a break I will take and play after i have studied some .

I like the 0.25 90 players and 0.10 360 players on Stars . I know that's a lot of players for a sng , but I like that the prizes are higher with many players (plus more loose players imo ) Smile In the past I tried the 9max 1.1$ , played some to see how they are , can't say I had any profit .

After a crazy start, in which I burned several free bank rolls, I spent many years (7 or 8) playing exclusively freerolls or tournaments for which I had obtained a free ticket. But last year I had a lot of free time and, for the first time, I started reading and studying. I chose the S&G to invest my money, also for the first time, playing 9 or 10max, of $ 0.10, 0.40 and $ 1. I did well (ROI 27.5%), so I plan to return to them Blink
