  1. Hey Friends, New to this forum. I was searching for some poker forums and found this page. Can anyone help me with some good authorized websites to play poker as I am coming here from mobile poker games. 😅
  2.

  3. [caption width="640"] Winning at poker means learning what it really means to be competitive[/caption] Living in Poker’s Competitive Paradigm An often overlooked aspect of the mental game in today's poker environment is the extent to which taking poker seriously and making an effort to improve your game requires a transformation in the way you look at the world. Becoming a professional poker player in particular forces you to re-evaluate the way you approach life. In many cases, it can mean going from a lifestyle where your paycheck is only loosely related to your performance a
  4. Consider the following scenario: You're a new poker player who is invested in a strategy coach to get you on the track to making steady income at the tables. You end up in a hand with Kh2h on a board of AsTh9h4c and your opponent accidentally flashes you his hand of Ac6d. You want to know what your chances were of winning, so you review the hand with your coach during your next session. Your coach tells you there was a 20% chance that you'd catch a flush on the river and moves on to the next hand you want to review. Technically, your coach is correct, but has he improved your game? Not rea
  5. In a blog published on Friday on FullContactPoker, Daniel Negreanu (pictured) gave his take on becoming a professional poker player. He explained, "A professional poker player is a small business owner, in the business of entertaining their customers (players who aren't as skilled as they are)." Negreanu added that part of being an owner of a business is to create a two-sentence vision statement about what you want to get out of your career as well as determine a concrete income you can achieve. "Drawing from our vision statement, we need to make sure that our plan is financially responsibl
  6. I'm really surprised there isn't more posts from PA players! I don't know about you but i am freaking excited about online going live soon!

  7. The 2020 World Series of Poker on GGPoker is less than two weeks away and on Sunday some of the game's brightest stars appeared more than ready to get after a bracelet a two.

  9. ‘The luck of the Irish’ is a saying that comes with a certain amount of ridicule. Created in the late 19th century, when many of the most successful gold miners in America were Irish, it suggests that it was pure luck, rather than brains and skill, that led the Irish to success. For that reason, we would never use that saying when talking about online poker. Instead, through their brains and skill, many Irish poker players have been mining their fortunes online for years. Here are the top 10 Irish players in the world right now. 10. Conor ‘ccoonnoorr’ O’Driscoll In at numb
  10. [caption width="640"] Poker players need to follow these tips to avoid losing focus easily over longer sessions.[/caption] Staying Focused During Long Live Sessions With the 2016 World Series of Poker currently in full flow, many poker players are spending a lot of time at the poker table this summer. With the average day’s play in a WSOP event lasting anywhere between eight and 12 hours, this can be a gruelling schedule, especially for professionals grinding five to seven days a week throughout most of June and July. A lot of recreational players might be unaccustomed to playing s

[caption width="640"] Ferguson elicits a polarizing range of emotions as he steps back into the spotlight[/caption] Chris ‘Jesus’ Ferguson won his sixth World Series of Poker bracelet on Wednesday when he took down WSOPE Event #7 (€1,650 Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better) for €39,289. With the victory, Ferguson, the current WSOP Player of Year points leader, extended his first place margin over both Ryan Hughes and John Racener, the players nearest to him in the race. Shedding his traditional urban cowboy garb, Ferguson took to the table with a navy T-shirt with a single word silkscreened
  12. The biggest names in poker will most likely find themselves in Europe in October chasing not only the ten WSOP bracelets available at WSOP Europe but also the riches that come with another European Poker Tour stop. For those staying State-side, October features great mid-tier buy-in events across the country. Europe The World Series of Poker is back in Europe, but at a new location as the Series goes to Germany for the first time. Ten bracelets will be awarded at Berlin's Spielbank Casino from October 8-24. The €10,450 WSOPE Main Event is a six-day affair as the biggest names in poker g
  13. Hello P5'ers, My name is Brady Osterman (you all probably know me by my alias DuQueen2Q on WPN). I'm 28 years young, professional MTT player who is looking for a room/shared living situation with another poker player(of any discipline) who is as serious about the game as I am. I've come to the conclusion that living with another player temporarily will be a beneficial next step in my poker journey. I suppose this post could also serve those players who have similar needs as I do at the moment. I've been grinding for a stable for nearly 3 months now- and have seen immense improvement

  15. Brazil's Henrique Bastos Coutinho came through a 5,490 player field to bank $148,292 and become this week's PokerStars Sunday Million champion. Playing under the alias 'Galochina10' he was able to beat 'it.happ3ns.' into second-place for $104,064, with 'mrAndreeew' taking away $73,028 in third-place. The win for Coutinho meant he smashed his previous best recorded online cash of $10,244 by some margin. 'sousinha23' came through a tough PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller final table that included the top two ranked players in the world Lena900 and C.Darwin2 to bank $45,028. 'Lena900' follo

  17. [CAPTION=100%]The way you talk about poker Watch Your Language: Why Words Matter in Poker There are many different ways in which we conceptualize poker in order to make it easier to talk about. We talk about it as a mathematical construct, we talk about it as a psychological battle between opponents, we increasingly talk about it as a sport, we talk about it as a gambling pastime. One way in which we almost never talk about it, however, is in meta-discussion - in other words, talking about the ways in which we talk about poker. This article contends that the language we use in ord

[caption width="640"] Sam 'TheSquid' Grafton took home ,800 for a runner-up finish in the Sunday Grand.[/caption] There was a three-way final table deal in the PokerStars Sunday Million weekly flagship tournament over the weekend, as 'needdollarz' outlasted over 5,500 opponents to claim the $159,387 first place prize. Fellow Russian 'THCHunter' finished runner-up in that event for $116,000 while Daniel 'lucky_scrote' Carter of the United Kingdom walked away with $122,069 in third place.

  19. [caption width="639"] Mayweather vs. McGregor brings out the bettors this Saturday night[/caption] Mayweather or McGregor? The entire sports world will come to a standstill this Saturday night as the once-in-a-generation boxing talent of Floyd “Money” Mayweather puts his perfect record at risk against the biggest superstar the UFC has to offer in “The Notorious” Conor McGregor at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. With a fight - nay, a spectacle - of this magnitude, there is plenty of money flowing into the Vegas sportsbooks from those looking to get some additional “action” to t
  20. Ethan Brandenburg doesn’t have the bankroll to play $100,000 super high roller events. As a school teacher in New Jersey, he probably needs to save for several years to even dream of putting up that kind of money. With the rise of staking websites, Brandenburg is able to buy small pieces of players in an effort to get in on the action without risking huge sums of money to play himself. He frequently buys action on StakeKings.com and has done well for himself buying action of pros that post packages on the site. His biggest score came when he had a piece of Charlie Carrel in the Pok
  21. [caption width="640"] If you don't think you have a time management problem, you're wrong. But it is fixable.[/caption] I’m going to be honest with you right off the bat here. If you’re a poker player - either a professional, or a dedicated amateur - you probably have a time management problem. The reality is that whichever category you’re in, it’s always difficult to decide exactly how much time to dedicate to poker, and how to spend the time you’ve allocated to it. Let’s examine a few ideas that might help you fix flaws in this area. Identify your biggest challenges Everyone has
  22. We're in the home stretch of 2014. In fact, just four days remain in this calendar year, which means it's time to reflect on the year that was and create a few goals for 2015. In a thread in the Poker Community forum, posters were sharing their goals and aspirations for next year. Whether it was building a bankroll or dabbling in live games, plenty of players are looking forward to the year to come. A poster from the UK kicked off the thread, saying, "Mine are in order most important down to not-so-important: (1)final table the Sunday Storm, (2) get five four-figure scores, (3) cash in at
  23. How to Implement Changes in Your Game It’s one thing to take a look at your game and figure out what changes you need to make, but it’s quite another to actually implement those changes effectively. Many people stumble during the process - they know what it is they need to change, but trying to change it does more harm than good. They take one step forward, and two steps back, and they end up worse off than where they started. Is there a way out of this cycle? Of course - it’s just a matter of knowing where to focus, and avoiding the cognitive dissonance and ‘fuzzy logic’ that can co
  24. [caption width="640"] John Hesp went from playing pub poker tournaments to being a fan favorite in the WSOP Main Event in 2017.[/caption] As the final days of 2017 slowly tick by, it's time to take a look back at the year in poker. Over the last 10 days of the year, PocketFives is taking readers on a trip back in time to recap the last 12 months in a fun and unique way. The first two stories looked back at the top five news stories from off the felt and the five best heaters. Now we fondly remember the players who brought more to the game than a GTO approach. Here we give you the top fi
  25. Join PocketFives throughout the month of December as we bring you the PocketFives 12 Days of Christmas to help keep you in the spirit of giving. It would be nice to think that, as we grow older, the old adage of “it’s better to give than receive” is a feeling that most people come to embrace. That said, there’s an amazing feeling when the right person gives you the perfect gift. Quite often it’s not only the gift itself, but it’s the fact that there’s someone out there that knows you so well and wants nothing more than to make you happy. “This is a close one,” said PokerStars and WSOP bro
