    bison39 Woodbridge, New Jersey, United States    Question. Been playing borgata only. Thoughts/reviews on the other sites?


       briangrim310: A lot of it comes down to personal preference. I log the most time on Party. Then 888. Then Borgata. Can't afford to play on WSOP with any regularity. Seems to be where the most consistent talent lives and rebuy and add-on is the name of the game there.

       FrickenWacko: Just a side note, most of the online NJ pros are not making money playing MTT's on 888.

    FrickenWacko Glen Ridge, New Jersey, United States    Ok, so I look at all of these players ranked in NJ, and it occurs to me that quantity doesn't equal quality. Some highly ranked players are barely profitable, and some are actually down money. The first step to becoming a winning player is to admit when you aren't one. I have made a habit of keeping a notepad with my results. This eventually was replaced by PokerTracker4, which has been invaluable in seeing exactly how well you've been doing. Even if you do take steps to improve your game, how can you really tell if the changes have had a significant impact? I'm at the point where most changes I make are pretty subtle. What do you guys do to gauge your performance (aside from account balances)?


       jp1979: Mine us usually gauged by the amount of alcohol I consume during any one session, I sometimes have great nights cause it makes me play more aggressive, on the other hand I seem to be spewing a ton and not taking the game seriously. Sometimes I'll raise and get re raised and just jam it right back no matter what just because lol. Not so great strategy. I've been wanting to utilize the Pt4 I bought months and months ago, still haven't. I would like to start taking notes but I don't. I got a lot to work on but I love to play. :)

    Dlorican Somerset, New Jersey, United States At the mobile and tablet gaming summit in Atlantic City on Monday, before some of us P5ers took the panel for player feedback, Senator Lesniak spoke about online gaming and how credit card companies are one of the main factors as to why iGaming is struggling to do better the expected.

    According to Press of AC, Lesniak told conference attendees: “Don’t expect stellar results until the major credit card companies come on board.”



       Jaybone2315: its not that women dont like poker, they just dont play. Its pretty much a fact. Im in a live tournament right now. I can see 14 tables from where Im sitting.... i see 5 women.

       Dlorican: I played in a small $1k gtd turbo at Bally's. I had about 4 women at my table alone. There were maybe 10+ women in the tourn with about 40 runners. When playing in the WSOP nightlies this summer, every table I was at was minimum 3 women. So I mean more and more women are playing. Whether they do it online is another story.

    wishihAdsOMeLUcK Woodbridge, New Jersey, United States    anyone else agree that more then a double rebuy and addon in a rebuy on Party/Borgata is a waste, figuring the way the pay outs are setup? maybe its just me....

    CommentRaise 1 person raised this

       briangrim310: I see double re-buys often being one of these 3 scenarios. You're skilled enough, and your bankroll is healthy enough for you to take several shots at a tournament that might not offer a significant payout relative to the buy-in. (I don't fall into this category, most players don't). You've got poor bankroll practices and subscribe to the any two will do mantra...you'll just double up next hand, no biggie. Or you're having a knee-jerk reaction to a bad beat or poorly played hand. Can't let that villain get the best of you. Say it's a $5 r/a, $500 guarantee on Party with around $140 going to first, $25 to 9th. Double re-buy twice, add on once and you've spent more than you'd get if you final table and bow out 9th. Over the long run I'd rather take my shot with $5, add on at the break if I go the distance and more than double up on my buy-ins if I final table.

       briangrim310: Take that money I would have used to double re-buy twice and play some other MTT's.

    47 Things That I Wish Someone Had Told Me Before I Started Playing Poker

    CommentRaise 4 people raised this

    LifeGr1nder Lodi, New Jersey, United States By any chance does anyone on here use Fanduel or Draftkings? Looking for some good websites so I actually know what I'm doing when I play. So far found rotogrinders.com but not much else.


       briangrim310: @LifeGr1nder I generally do pretty well when it comes to fantasy hockey, but it can be tough on sites like Draft Kings. I find it's easier to make picks for a sport like football that plays once a week and is very match up dependent. It's harder to pick who will have a break out night on the ice because there's a lot more parity in the NHL. Some of the contests are for one night only and it seems a lot more hit or miss.

    3 hours, 1 minute ago · Raise 


       Dlorican: I've started going on fanduel more now that the NBA season has started. Got better knowledge on NBA players then NFL. But I am playing fantasy in both leagues on there. Never used rotogrinders, might give it a shot. My cousin who doesn't play poker is a waiter part time and makes a killing in these daily fantasy sites.

    Chopitup99 Somerset, New Jersey, United States    After taking a bunch of bad beats in other tournaments, I GAVE some for a change winning the 888 NJ High Roller today. Lately it has seemed if there was a bad beat, I'd be catching it. I try not to whine in the text box because I hate when others do it. Everything I've seen on line I've seen happen in live games. Props to Diorican who does a nice job reporting on the poker scene.

    FrickenWacko Glen Ridge, New Jersey, United States Am I the only one with this problem?
    I tend to make a lot of final tables, and then I get too aggressive too early on and spew, ruining my chances of a much deeper finish. It's almost like there is some pent up pressure to get involved in more pots once the FT bubble bursts.

    CommentRaise 2 people raised this

       ElGuapo77: If there are volatile short stacks acting after me, I try to raise only with hands I think will play well against a likely short stack all in hand which is still a wide range.

    nutsooncow North Arlington, New Jersey, United States OK maybe I can get some advice from you degenerates. . Don't play too many tourneys per night or at the same time but thinking about getting a second monitor like 17 inches or so just to add to by bull shit Toshiba laptop screen windows 8 lol. I want something I can just plug/connect to my Toshiba laptop when I'm playing or want to rail some extra games. Any good places to look for cheap or used? Do I need to get any cables? Thx for the help!

       mikewebb68: Borgata Party IS a huge memory hog. If it is laggy, i would suggest a) closing any open browsers/prgrams you may have and b) if a) doesn't work, disable antivirus program that chew up a lot of memory be scanning the poker clients.
