    I got just over $170 on Mansion right now. Been winning in micro limits, and came second in a $2 Shorthanded tourney, with $115 for the 2nd place prize.

    Finally getting some good results in cash games, not finished whiping out my debt from April.

    Gotta revive this thread with:

    my incredible performance in a play money tournament. (H) 12th place out of 810.

    [​IMG]

    Almost reached the final table...

    [​IMG]

    And my 5th straight flush ever(I started my poker career at the beginning of 2008 (H)) when there were like 100 players left.

    [​IMG]


    Just wasted the money from my account last week at a stupid cash game, if I had got the 12th place in a real money tournament I would have been rich. :( Well, not really, but 20x the entrance fee is good.

    Any of you guys playin PL Omaha? That's pretty much all I play for cash games, at the moment. The players are just so soft.

    Really? I simply love it, because I got used to it and I can't even play with other poker client, like Poker Stars for example.

    BTW, if we are speaking of skins, has anyone tried Bodog Poker? They got a kick-ass design + I've seen quite a lot of players having Bodog on their shirts or caps at the WSOP.

    Nah, probably haven't played there for months... But yeah we had a few fun games. Played some real money there for a while, but you can only play 3 tables so soon got tiring.

    Really trying to get into it. Have had a few goes over at Pokerstars on the super Micros.

    Tricky to adapt to the subtleties coming from Holdem. Got to make those straight, flushes and even FH lay downs!

    I know, it might be weird. Hell, I even folded a set of queens to a AQ2 board with a flush draw. He 4bet me, so he must've had AA or a monster draw. -EV. Was really proud of myself. (H)

    This the kind of easy competition you were talking about?

    Now, I know very well how Omaha works... just had a total brain fart on the river. Convinced I had a straight (H)

    And Limit Omaha is a bitch. Just impossible to play, because there are so many draws possible, and you get the odds to draw at them always. Pot Limit is where it's at.

    Definitely agree. Just easing myself in.

    Also, here's a funny link for whoever is a poker fanatic: http://gushansentv.com/ Like a tv channel of the Dane playing online.
