Pienciak’s Poker Tour (PPT) is a Judi Online24jam Deposit Uang journey every gamblin’ Daily News reader can only dream of taking.
Competing in No Limit Texas Hold’em online with play money is like being surrounded by a bunch of muggers, only to have them pummel you with dainty pillows.
Crazy behavior often reigns. Players bet phenomenal amounts of “money” without consequence because, well, there are no consequences. It seems as if many of these freeloaders have no idea when to bet and when to git.
For the past month, in preparation for the start of my poker series – Pienciak’s Poker Tour, also known as PPT – I have been “wagering” in the play money section at PokerStars.com, the second-largest Internet poker room in the world, alternating between winning and losing thousands of fake dollars.
On some occasions, like Thursday evening into Judi Online24jam Deposit Uang Friday morning, I joined a group of reasonable people trying to hone their skills at a table of $5/$10 Play Money No Limit Texas Hold’em.
I started last week’s session with “$7,567” in my account. After pulling a string of flushes and a couple of full houses, I quit with “$27,486” in play money. I can only dream of pulling those kind of cards when I start playing with real money.
More often, though, playing with fake dough has been less than satisfying.
Time after time, some nutball across the virtual table from me goes “all in,” meaning he bets all of his chips, often before any common cards are turned over. Such behavior might make sense if the raising player has a pair of Aces as hole cards. But usually, whenever those cards are shown, they are mediocre, or worse.
