recieved the bonus. $100 eligible. Already over 1 tenth of the way there. I think this bonus will be easy to clear.

Thanks. I found it. But I have the session option checked and I can't find it displayed anywhere? (The other options I checked show up on the right sidebar of the lobby.)

Have to say the new lobby and filters are pretty sweet.

Bad news: I still suck at poker

Good news: Some other players still suck worse than I do.

Feel really rusty but I ran hot so I can't complain. I did manage to keep up with 8 tables, when I use to run 12 or 16. But, I did have intermittent lag. Maybe once per hour I seemed to disconnect for about a minute.

Really evil of them to drag me back in.

Have you tried scrolling down the sidebard by pressing the arrow near the bottom right of the right sidebar?

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

Hmmm, crap...

I wonder about my bonus but you have to accept it before you can see the amount? Thing is that I'll be on vacation from the 8th to the 15th so I can't play for a week and I think I need every day possible :P

But I can claim the bonus until august 16th so I guess I'll have to claim it the day I get back from holidays...

Really glad they finally implemented those filters btw, not as much use for FTO now anymore. Really hate the way I play and run atm though so overall this month is still crap

Edit:

Not sure I remember how to play lol.

Where are these widgets you speak of?

Edit 2: Glad I followed this thread enough to update my mods, and HEM for the last change.
Glad to have you back mom!

Grabbed by Holdem Manager
NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Full Tilt
SB ($37.22)
BB ($25)
UTG ($26.84)
UTG+1 ($26.20)
Hero ($25)
BTN ($10)

Dealt to Hero A T

fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, fold, fold

FLOP ($1.85) Q A Q

Hero bets $1.25, BTN raises to $2.50, Hero calls $1.25

TURN ($6.85) Q A Q 3

Hero bets $3.25, BTN raises to $6.75 (AI), Hero calls $3.50

RIVER ($20.35) Q A Q 3 4

BTN shows Q J
(Pre 45%, Flop 91.4%, Turn 95.5%)

Hero shows A T
(Pre 55%, Flop 8.6%, Turn 4.5%)

BTN wins $19.34
Meh, I'd say his line is pretty strong imo. I'm betting no more than 1/2 pot on the flop. It's enough to get him to fold crap hands and still stick in with lower PP hands (which he will call with). Might even check flop as these guys loves to slowplay sets/trips+.

As played I'm folding flop against a loose passive who minraises (assuming he ran like 40/5 or something rather than 40/30). Small sample obv but without reads that he likes to bluff raise I'm folding.

Edit: He is short so he is playing for stacks and you'll most likely have to call the rest of his stack on later streets.

I'm doing it wrong.

Got $100 and still disappointed, seeing as I haven't played much recently was hoping for more enticement. Meh, at least it'll be easy to clear. And WTF am I complaining about a 10% ballance boost?

No, you can see it first before you click accept.

Requests ---> Check my bonus offer...

Displays amount and gives you 3 options:

Ask me later
Accept Offer

For the record, I did this many times and it said over and over again "You have no bonus offer."

I had to accept it before I could see the amount.

I thought you were supposed to go to My Promotions and check it there, then they let you do the whole "check my bonus offer" in the client.

I also thought I could see it first, but I don't remember at this point.

When I go to the 'My promotions' part and click the bonus banner I get the option of accepting it but I don't see any amount stated...

I'll accept it when I get back from vacation, we'll see by then.

Oh, right, you can accept it there, then go to the "check my bonus offer" and are given another option to accept it.

I think.

Yeah, maybe you should wait until after, just to be safe.

FYP.

Against an unknown, where the flop hits his range like Katrina Louisiana, fold. And if you don't fold there, fold the turn. It's only TPMK for Pete's sake.

There seems to be two ways FTP is presenting the bonus:

1. My Promotions ---> Bonus Banner ----> Accept button ---> Tells you your bonus

2. Request etc from Lobby

Option 2 worked for me but wouldn't for my wife's sn (she gets told she has no bonus). Option 1 worked for her but doesn't for me (I don't get an accept button on the Bonus Web page). Weird. Difference is my wife had not played for a few months??

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

Got the $100 offer even though I only have 15k hands in what, 6 months?

Is it possible to clear it at 2NL??
I am thinking of adding $50 to my current BR (back to $50 after going all the way down to $4 :-P) to try 5NL instead...

Suggestions welcomed :-)

I have gotten a decent WR with these being true for me. I suck at poker, but I always find one table where someone is worse than me.

what I was thinking of doing was instead of considering my self a NL50/100 player and only getting a 1-2 BI bonus, I would just consider myself a NL2 player and SWEET I GOT A 50BI BONUS BABY!!!!!
