One of partypoker's recent winners in the Cash Game Leaderboards is "vorosbarnavarga" from Hungary, and he has some solid advice to give to fellow players on the site.
He began playing poker in 2008 after taking advantage of a free bankroll offer. At first, he played every game type, but in the end he settled on playing mostly Pot-Limit Omaha.
He said, "I graduated from university as an agronomist and also studied some IT. I'm 44-years-old now and maybe a little old for grinding micro-stakes, but I have plenty of free time nowadays."
In case you're wondering just like we do, an agronomist is an expert in the science of soil management and crop production. He's definitely been planting a few seeds for success recently and loves his time at partypoker, mainly the Cash Game Leaderboards.
He said, "I played for many years at PokerStars but I decided to find another poker site when they started limiting players to playing only four tables. I really wish I'd come to partypoker sooner. This is the best promotion I have ever participated in. Micro stakes players can reach 100% cashback thanks to receiving the default cashback."
Grinding it out at the PLO Cash Games
vorosbarnavarga grinded it out at the $0.01/$0.02 PLO tables and finished on top of the leaderboard, which awarded him $200. He also profited from the cashback loyalty scheme and finished with plenty of profit from his play, something he advises you try to do when chasing down the leaderboard prizes.
"I disliked having to play up to 12-hours per day but I had to because I wanted to win. With the extra hours I can also win more from the game itself. I didn't follow properly but I think I won between 50 and 60 buy-ins and managed to win even more from the Cash Game Leaderboard prize."
"I usually played from the afternoon until I was tied. I quit if I couldn't stay focused. Also, I never checked my bankroll during session because it can confuse and make you play scared if you have lost too much money."
He says he probably will not be chasing the leaderboard immediately. Instead, he took a couple of days away from the action and now has a goal of reaching $100 in rake and seeing where that places him on the leaderboard.
Great Tip for Leaderboard Chasers
For potential leaderboard chasers, vorosbarnavarga has these excellent words of advice:
"My tip for the leaderboard is there is no point chasing the big score if you lose a lot from playing. Don't go all-in with crappy hands just to generate more rake. I saw many players go broke with little or no equity. In the end, you may just break even with the leaderboard prize."
