July update and thoughts on state of the online games
After the huge,but kind of expected, shock of having a decent part of my bankroll possibly lost forever (well if not forever atleast for a pretty long time) courtesy of dear old Full Tilt Poker, I have now moved my play almost exclusively to PS for this month. Their customer service as always is top notch and most importantly withdrawals take less than 12 hours to either Neteller or Moneybookers. The only shitty thing about PS is that their rakeback is pretty low unless you are a supernova.
Fortunately for me just before dear old FTP went belly-up, I had transferred out about 3.3k and now have about 1.5kish stuck on the site. So things arent as bad as they could have been. But then I have a cashout from Cakepoker thats pending for about 35 days now
I have been playing exclusively 50 HU on pokerstars this month, mostly because I have the feeling that over the past 2 months some big leaks have crept into my Heads Up game. So I am ironing out those leaks at 50hu before I move upto 100 again possiby towards the end of this month or early next month.
Heres how the month has been on PS:

So I have been pretty much cruising and crusing 50 hu this month, but volume again has been shitty as a bunch of stuff is going on in real life, parents have come to visit, work is hectic yada yada yada.
I also deposited about 15 Buyins on the ipoker network (Betmost poker being the skin, where incidentally i got a very very decent rakeback offer) to try out the games and see how they play, but till now the network has been a complete waste of time. I've got literally no action and most of the HU players on ipoker seem to be extreme bumhunters. Atleast on Pokerstars I am almost guranateed to get action at 50 and 100hu, but on ipoker i struggled to get any action even on the 20 euro/pound tables. Plus the ipoker software is complete crap compared to pokerstars/ftp or even AP/UB. Sigh !!!!!!!!
I have pretty much given up on the merge network, as the thing with is merge is that, since it is one of the only reliable site currently accepting US players most of the US HU-regs have moved to merge. Cash game beasts who used to play 2/4-5/10 NLHU pre black friday are playing as low as 50HU, so the games on merge are not good at all ATM.
So I am still looking for a second site to play that has a decentish software, if any of you have any ideas do let me know.
Till next time cha chaaaaaaaaa
