Had a decent run on PokerStars.net tonight...



I should have made the top two, but the other guy caught a couple of lucky river cards.

Re: Had a decent run on PokerStars.net tonight...

So do you win real money or is it just the joy of doing well?

Re: Had a decent run on PokerStars.net tonight...

Yeah; for about 5 hours of "work".

I've won lots of other smaller tournaments ($15, $20, etc), but that's the most I've won online so far.

For a $20 buy in that's pretty cool.

I think I've tried about all of them, and always go back to PokerStars. I just prefer their interface over the others.

Re: Had a decent run on PokerStars.net tonight...

I got the pokerstars download. figure I would play in some free tournaments and what not today to see if I liked it. Doesn't this damn thing goto full screen? It's small and doesn't have a maximize available.

Re: Had a decent run on PokerStars.net tonight...

So, do you run into (or "believe" it may be happening) pairs "running" the table through "Instant Messaging" or such, or does the software perform some kind of "lockout"?

Re: Had a decent run on PokerStars.net tonight...

don't think there would be a way for them to lock out other applications running on your computer...

EDIT: how friggin long till this damn site sends my fuggin email confirmation to me? damn, can't play **** till you get that from them. Most sites it is instantaneous.
