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

I play NL25 on FT and have rakeback. I was wondering if anyone is moving to PS to clear the reload bonus or is it not worth it and Id be better off just playing the 75000 hands its takes to clear the bonus at FT? BTW I play about 25000 hands a month.

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

i have no rakeback from FTP and I hate it. I only play there this month coz of bonus and till i get stox membership. Then i will be back on PS for the reload bonus + platinum star rakeback which is better than everything that FTP has to offer.

Seriously if some FTP mod is reading this, I play 100k hands a month and you get 20k of it solely because your support sucks and is refusing to consider any sort of rakeback deal after I stumbled into your site by myself.

and also thanks for telling me i can't deposit moer than 600$ at a time.
and finally a big thanks for increasing my table count. Phew I almost thought your support is dead.

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

For 25NL

^^300 x 25 = 7500

Full Tilt
7500/0.11 fpp/hand = 68,182 hands

68182 x 0.015 MGR/hand = $1023

$1023 x 0.27 = $276

Don't forget to add in the fpp's you earn
for clearing the bonus too. 10k fpps = $160

Stars
$300 + [(7500/10000) x $160] = $420 > $276

If you are silver or higher then you would have more fpp's than 7500 so it would be more

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

i have a trulyfreepokertraining question. So i grind out 8000 points this month when does my membership start with stox and CR? next month only?

And does anybody know how to change the order of preferences. (like stox or CR first).

and which one do you recommend? I do stox now coz its quicker.

thanks

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

Why does FTP limit the number of tables you can play? It makes no sense. They want me to go out of my way and email them so I can give them more rake per unit of time.

And zugzwangg your membership starts on 1st of next month. I don't know about CR but Stox does have SplitSuit's micro FR videos, which made it my first choice.

If you want fullring then I think Stox has the best stuff. Cardrunners doesnt have very many helpful full ring vids, more 6 max and HU stuff there. Both are still sweet to have

you can email them and ask them to change your primary account (stox/CR)

CR actually has some decent FR vids lately, watched a few kush and fooz vids and they're pretty solid

There were some other CR recommendations recently but I can't find them. Is it pretty much just kush and fooz? I thought there were a few others to look out for? I have only watched 1 vid so far at CR and it was WCGRider's.

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

I can get VCpoker 50-65% depending how much you rake

Furthermore don't play on 50NL FR Party as it is filled with Regs anyway + shorties =(((

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

UGH! Since I got back from vacation I had one quick sick night and now am going back down hill fast. Seems like the games have gotten even more aggressive. I cant raise one dime without getting 3 and 4 banged to death. Mix that with some flop run bad and add a couple coolers here and there and the green line just keeps going down. Run good no more.

15th shot take fail. 100nl really hates, just call one of my 3bets with ATC and you'll hit.

Hi everyone,

Was just reading the last page of the thread cuz I'm making the move from PS to FT tomorrow. I'm excited, I haven't really played much at FT in the past but I finally got rakeback a few months ago so I'm finally getting on the move after much procrastination.

I suck at life. My friend gets 45% and he hooked me up with his affiliate and they would only give me 30% to start.

I'm impressed, I always was told / experienced FT support sucks but I asked them to remove the 8 table limit and I got a reply back within 24 hours removing the restriction.

I just finished 226th out of 5,712 in FTOPS #1.


FML. I come so close in these events but I can never pull the FT out of my ass.

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

$571.20. I had 75k on the bubble and was chip leader by like 20k at my table. I then proceeded to go card dead for 2 hours and had to grind my ass off to make the top 250. My table was just great too, the play was horrific. Of course when I shove my 8 BB with AJ the only nit at the table other than me snap calls, so the expletives start to fly. I can't catch AQ and GG me. I had so much fun though, it is quite the feeling knowing you have a shot at a 5-6 figure payday. I'll get em' next time I guess, it's only like the 3rd event I've ever played in the big FTOPS. I also crippled the guy who finished 15th in the WSOP ME this year, so that was cool.
