Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Dieses wird für Sie geschrieben, wenn Sie planen, dich einem Heimspiel, einem Firmageldbeschaffer anzuschließen, um etwas Spielgeld online zu spielen, oder, die Mikrotabellen versuchend.

Sunday, August 15th, 2010

Well, I’m not really designing a poker bot, per se. But it’s an approach that I’m planning to use for a while.

Focus on trying to raise everything preflop. Focus on playing tight and just earning FTP points for the Take 2 promotion. Rush Poker puts you on a […]
