Chip And A Chair

The late great Jack Strauss was the reason the phrase “Chip and a chair” was coined back in 1982. In the WSOP he thought he pushed all his chips into the pot and lost the hand. Once he got up from the table he realized there was one $500 chip under his cocktail napkin. It turns out he wasn’t completely committed to the pot since he never said he was allin. Two days later that 1 chip turned into the World Series of Poker Championship. Go figure. Now it is your turn to make it happen for you. All poker sites are offering WSOP qualifiers for this years events. Now is the time to start. Good luck.

Poker Bonus Codes

What are they? Do they have power? Put it this way, just when your bankroll is about to become zero after a bad beat, the bonus kicks in and saves you. Almost all rooms offer a bonus code or some kind of link that allows you to earn extra cash on your money. For example, Ultimatebet offers 40% on your initial deposit up to $200. So if you made a deposit of $500, you will receive an extra $200. The catch to bonuses is that you have to play a certain amount of raked hands to release these bonus dollars into your account. Make sure you check the requirements before you start calling your 7-2off. If you have any questions about bonuses or if you need a high priced poker bonus code, just send us an email.

PartyGaming Makes Their Move

It hasn’t even been six months since online poker company PartyGaming’s IPO. Realizing the competition is growing around them, they decided to acquire some of their competitors. The funny thing about this deal is the two companies they purchased were actual partners until a couple of months ago. Purchasing Multipoker and Intertops poker adds around 300,000 poker players to it’s large poker room. For just about 18 million dollars, this deal seems like a no brainier. The big news in this deal is what will happen to its other partner EmpirePoker. Left stranded with only there own players, Empire seems like a ghost town. This is obviously a strategic move causing Empire Poker shares to keep dropping. It’s just a matter of time until Party eats them up or spits them out. Hang on, its going to be a bumpy ride.

How To Make A Deposit?

Online poker rooms have made it easy to make deposits to your account. Almost all rooms accept credit cards however, the USA credit cards will most likely fail due to the legitimacy of the transaction. If credit cards worked, there would probably be twice as many players online today. You do have alternatives that are quite easy to setup and are very secure. Our favorites include: Neteller, FirePay, IGM-Pay, and Phone Connect Card. All have there advantages and disadvantages. They all offer immediate deposits and fairly quick withdrawals. The one that stands out the most is the IGM-Pay method. This is an electronic funds transfer (EFT) directly from your checking account. This is a 3rd party banking site, that offers you the security you are looking for and the best part is that it’s FREE. All the other forms of payments have fees attached. Research all your options and choose what is right for you. Don’t be nervous to make that first deposit. Good Luck.

TO IS A NO GO

If there is a bigger asshole than Terrell Owens, please come forward and tell us about him. The sporting news this week was about how Terrell Owens called the Philadelphia Eagles organization the pits and how he would rather be playing with Brett Farve. This is one story that will eventually die off, but until it does, Mr. Awesome is going to have center stage. The best wide receiver in the NFL has been suspended indefinitely by the Eagles. Some people see this as a great move, but deep inside we all know how much this team really needs TO. Can you imagine if TO was at your poker table. The trash talking would be almost to hard not to walk away from. Anyway, good luck Birds.

Midnight Baseball

One of the better wild card poker games turns to reality. If you haven’t played Day or Midnight baseball poker, then you should try it at your next poker night. We at least know one major leaguer knows what it is. Maybe it’s the big lights, big city environment, but we do know Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez likes to spend some money at the poker table. Can you imagine having a piece of his millions? You know he’s not playing at a $2/$4 limit table. His tables are probably more like $500/$1000, otherwise the game won’t be worth his time. He’s been warned in the past for showing up at New York City Poker Clubs, so I guess its just a matter of time until he gets busted. Who knows, he might end up at next years World Series of Poker.

TV Poker Ratings Are Down

Why do you think the TV ratings are down across the board? Could it be like any good thing? TV has tried to make poker the next best thing to reality TV. Some people like reality TV, while others despise it. Tips For Poker loves poker on TV, but finds it below the rankings of Curb You Enthusiasm. You flip through the channels any night of the week and you’ll most likely find a poker event going on. Whether it’s the WSOP, Celebrity Poker, or The World Poker Tour there has been an obvious push to get as many programs on the air as possible. Does it get boring after a while?, YES. Why, because it’s the same thing over and over again. Should they keep airing these events?, of course. This is what is going to keep the poker industry thriving. Do we need all these events aired, NO. Poker on TV will still exist, we just don’t need to see Jeff Gordon push Joey Fatone all-in.

Since going public in June 2005 PartyGaming (PartyPoker) shares have dropped nearly 50%. With a market cap of $5.5 billion, PartyPoker is set for a very good 2006, whether the industry slows or not.

The WSOP Main Event On ESPN

We got to see a little bit of what really happened at this years World Series Of Poker. They showed two days of action and hardly enough hands to highlight the size of this event. The feature table seemed to be rigged as well, bringing in some big name players to increase TV ratings. Greg Raymer was catching all the cards just like last year. We’ll have to wait and see what the next couple of days show. This enormous field will really start to dwindle soon, so hopefully the action will intensify. If you don’t know who won, then you’re better off watching every episode to see how it plays out.

They also came out with a new platform, which will give Partypoker players more options at the tables. The new blackjack option should give players a bit of a respite when needed.

CEO’s Turn To Poker

Corporate America executives are shifting some business meetings to the poker room versus the golf course. If you think about it, this totally makes sense.

If you were among this elite group, playing with other CEO’s would be quite interesting. You can figure out their tells and call their bluff’s in the board room when you get down to business.

The Luck’O The Irish

As most of our members know, we added sections to our forums about two months ago, in an effort to strike up some banter around the NFL and College Football. My partner-in-crime, Tiptheboss, suggested a WNBA forum as well, with their “typically exciting playoffs right around the corner”. Over-ruled! A good friend of mine and forum
member, Irish, is widely considered an accomplished college football handicapper. The regulars know he’s been posting plays in the forums since the start of the college season. Though week one reaped a windfall of impressive wins (6-1-1), weeks 2 and 3 were not nearly so kind leaving Irish with an average 7-8-3 record for the season.

It was at this time that Irish made a conscious decision to regroup and get back to what makes him and all other effective handicappers great; RESEARCH! Instead of capping 8, 9, 10 games on Saturday, Irish is now effectively capping 2 or 3 on Saturday, and weekday games when time permits. “It’s definitely quality over quantity in the capping business”, Irish told me in a recent IM chat session. Irish went on to boast about his 5-0 record since changing his strategy, and is plowing head-strong in to this weekend’s matchups. If you play College Football, you simply cannot afford to not tune in daily to the Irish connection. If you need a place to make these wagers, come to Bodog for the best lines.

Online Gaming Is Here To Stay

The US Senate turned down a bill that would restrict Internet Gambling. The Republican Senator from Arizona vow’s to make this happen one day, but it is too big of an industry for the Tax Man to ignore. Eventually our gaming experience will improve when the poker room servers are located in the USA. This Senator is sick of other countries collecting all the player rake. If he were smart he would legalize it in Arizona, which would bring in millions of tax dollars and give the Arizona Cardinals a chance at a Super Bowl. Forget all this legislative hoopla, how about a nice game of Texas Holdem at Poker Room.

A Poker Tip From Tips For Poker

If you could give one poker tip, what would it be? How about playing Big Slick, otherwise known as Ace-King? If you’re in late position, it is important to raise aggressively. The trick here is to narrow the field down pre-flop (1-2 players). If the board shows junk and you decide to check after the flop, you should probably go back to playing chess. You must represent strength, AA or KK. Make your opponent fold. If you hit your Ace or King, you are in good shape to bet heavy. To find out more about playing Big Slick, enter our poker forums.

How To Select Your Fantasy Poker Team?

If you had to create a cheat sheet for your fantasy poker draft, who would you put in the top five? How do you know who the busts and sleepers are? It would be fun to have Brunson, Hellmuth and Hanson go against Lederer, Ferguson and Ivey in week one. The hardest thing about making this work is whether your player is going to play when you need them. You may need to go to the waiver wire if Negreanu is too drunk to play that weekend or if Annie Duke is tied up in her hotel room. Our advice is to stick to fantasy football.

Play Poker For a Rolex Submariner

For the month of August and September we will be giving away a free Rolex Submariner. There will also be additional prizes awarded, guaranteeing $6000 in prizes for each month. The Way it Works:

The Top 7 players are FreeRolled into the main tournament where 10 players will play for the free watch. The next 20 (plus the 10 that make it through the open tournament) players will play for 3 spots at the final table. The open tournament is for anyone who plays 2000 hands at Ultimate Bet. They will play for 10 spots in the second tier tournament. Everyone has a shot at this, but the people who play the most time and hands have a better chance. This promotion will be based on the combination of hands and points. You have two opportunities at the Rolex, so get started now. This is for new UltimateBet players. Find out more information in our Forum.
