  • Lock Poker Payouts In October & November 2014

    admin
    15 Oct 2014 | 11:04 pm
    Lock Poker was once the largest poker site open to US players in 2014. Now they rank as the smallest US poker site in October, 2014. They got booted off of the Revolution Poker Network because of their slow payouts and the fact that they were only paying some players. LockPoker.eu rebranded when they got kicked off their network and became a stand-alone room. Several months ago Lock Poker attempted to get around their evil reputation by launching SuperWins.eu, a skin that uses the same platform and has the same players. The new Super Wins poker room in 2014  should be avoided. It is kind of…
  • Free NASCAR Bets At US Sportsbooks In 2014 & 2015

    Do you think Jeff Gordon, Dael Earnhardt or perhaps lady drive Danica Patrick is going to win a NASCAR race or Formula 1 race or maybe the Indy 500? Well if you are going to bet on a woman you might as well look for a free NASCAR bet offer at an online sportsbook for Americans since you don’t want to waste your own money. It’s not as though a woman can win a race, unless it is a race to make-up sale. I’m just kidding. You can get a free NASCAR bet in 2014 at the top US sportsbooks though. I have several free bet offers on NASCAR, Formula 1, Indy 500 or any kind of car racing…

  • Winning Poker Money Without A Deposit

    admin
    18 Sep 2013 | 3:58 pm
    There are several reasons why a person would enjoy playing poker online without making a deposit. Some people just don’t have the extra money. Others – especially Americans – are unable to make a deposit. Other people may not want to deposit money at a poker room because they are not sure if it is legal or legit. None of these reasons will stop a person from trying to win money though. I would think that there are countless people who have built up a large poker balance without ever making a deposit. Every week there are millions of dollars up for grabs at online poker…
  • The Most Profitable Mixed Poker Game?

    admin
    16 Sep 2013 | 7:51 pm
    There are over a dozen mixed poker games to choose from at online poker rooms. Five years ago Horse poker was the dominate mixed variant but a succession of new mixed games have overtaken this classic. We have dozens of guides about mixed games, including rules, strategy articles and lists of rooms that offer a particular game so if you are unfamiliar with anything mentioned in this post feel free to browse around. I have read several forum threads created by players who want to know what the most profitable mixed poker game is. These debates usually consist of people claiming that this or…

    In the world of online poker, it’s always sort of just been the same poker rooms and networks sitting near the top of the rankings. You’ll find PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, 888poker, the iPoker Network and partypoker, while other sites all battle for position. At least, more often than not. This, though, is one of those times where things have taken a complete turn. Why is that exactly? Well, it’s thanks to an online poker site called Adjarabet. If you don’t know what that site is, don’t worry, because you aren’t alone. Apparently, though, this online poker…

    Well, Full Tilt Poker is back in the news once again, and this time it’s because two of their big-named players are no longer a part of the popular online poker site. When you saw that the site officially removed both Gus Hansen and Viktor “Isildur1″ Blom for the website, it led to many questions arising from the players on the site. We all knew something was up, but we just didn’t know exactly what it was.

    Well, the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia Pacific (APAC) has officially come to a close, and we’ve crowned the champion of the main event of the series. It wasn’t a quick final table, though, or at least the heads up match wasn’t.

The series, as you may know, is being played at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. Let’s take a look at how this event went down, and how things go to our heads up match.
