Running Bad

Sunday, July 2nd, 2006, 9:39 pm

I said the other day that I was cashing out what little I had in my bankroll to do more responsible things (find a job, exercise, blah blah blah). Then I learned about Full Tilt’s 50% bonus and thought, hey, can’t miss an opportunity like that!

Mistake. Rather than tell you in gruesome detail what happened, I’m just gonna say that I got unlucky a few times and leave it at that. I actually just wrote an impassioned 1,500 word sob story about three hands in particular, but you don’t want to read about it and I’ve already had the catharsis of writing it. And of throwing up in my toilet five minutes ago. Well, most of it went in the toilet. Where’s that mop…

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a book you could read that could improve your no-limit game? A book written by someone whose advice you trusted and whose game you admire? Wouldn’t that just be something?

The WSOP is in full swing. Joe Hachem and Dutch Boyd are battling it out for the bracelet in the $2500 short-handed NL tournament. Not that I’ve been following it much. Not after I saw the picture of Isabelle Mercier posted on the PokerStars blog yesterday. Hey, see how much you get done after six straight hours of sighing.

    PKR makes preview version of groundbreaking software available to all from

    PKR, the world’s most advanced online poker room, has today announced that poker players can download the preview version of its groundbreaking software without restriction. The free download is available from the website.

    Previously only available to beta-testers and invited participants, the removal of access restrictions sees PKR’s beta test move to the second and final stage before the eagerly anticipated summer launch.

    “By allowing people to download and install our preview software, we’re recreating a live environment as best we can” explains PKR founder and President Jez San. “We’re keen to get as many people playing at PKR as possible to help load test the system and really put us through our paces.”

    The two month testing process has been a resounding success, with feedback from testers and preview players being almost universally positive. Press coverage has been equally as positive with Poker Player magazine calling it “The future of online poker”, and Bluff magazine saying “it may actually be the most exciting thing that’s happened in the internet poker world”.

    Players who download and install the PKR preview version can expect to find a full range of play money ring games together with a spread of real money freerolls. All players that register before the full real money launch will also be automatically enrolled in the Advanced Registration Program that will see them qualify for exclusive bonuses, gifts and promotions.

    Over 15,000 players have already joined the PKR revolution making the summer launch the most anticipated event in online poker history.
