Amazingly enough I find the 2p2 regs pretty good at FT. They still squeeze when they are given the opportunity but they generally avoid 4b light wars.

strange maybe.. But that's how it works for me
For me, even though I was platinum, I never felt like I was getting rakeback on Stars. Cashing them in was just too inconsistent for it to feel like a real income.

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

When I played FT i most of the time had a 2/3 bi rakeback a week, but to be perfectly honoust I really don't miss it at all

I am not really a high volume player anymore, I play poker when I feel like playing or feel like I am going to be on my A-game,
I hate grinding a couple of hours a day like it's a must, it's not work for me, you know?

And I know you don't need to grind at FT, but rakeback is only something that makes your bankroll a lot better if you play tons of hands, otherwise you get 1 bi a week, which makes up for 4 bis a month

I am not saying 4 bi's a month is nothing, but if I compare it to a larger player pool where I am able to play against a lot of worse players then me if I table select well which makes it possible for me to have a higher winrate I think it pretty much equels out

I could open PS now and find a couple of very good tables pretty easily and make good money while at FT i am pretty sure I will find just a couple of tables full of regulars

The fact that PS has double the players then FT is a bit underestimated by lot of people that play FT for the rakeback

Thank god people have a other opinion then me about this, otherwise all the FT regs would join PS (which wouldn't be that much of deal since you can avoid regulars at PS pretty easy)

First of all, I'm running really really loose, and have been bluffing people relentlessly.

Second, he never plays a queen like this. He reps only a set.

Three. There are few set combinations.

Four. I hate to fold.

I'm just a bad microstakes player, but to me, this is really bad.
What was the plan?

Or maybe this is an example of all this light stuff I keep reading about.

Enquiring mind wants to know.

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

I have had no problems with Bank transfers....but looks like there is a little hiccup right now.

Usually there is a hiccup for 2-3 days, then FTP resloves it and everything is good from there.

Checks have worked for me as well.

I used to do fine at 50NL on Stars where 50NL on FTP beats up on me. That was a couple years ago, too.
