Poker Start-Up Expenses

Thursday, May 26th, 2005

Hope I can take this opportunity to thank those who have been sending me email. I try to answer every one sent. As I promised someone, I’ve been looking into what kind of expenses a new micro-limit player should expect online. I decided to provide my own start-up expenses and contrast them […]

You’re Looking For What?!

Playing During IGM/Party Bonuses Pt.3

Wednesday, May 25th, 2005

Even limiting my play to Party and Empire, there have been five bonuses in the April and May.

Getting Started in Hold’em by Ed Miller

Ed Miller and the people at 2+2 Publishing have really hit the ball out of the park with this book. I’ve mentioned in my previous review of “Hold’em Poker” by David Sklansky that though the introductory material is solid, there just isn’t much re-read value. It might […]
