re: Poker & old poker sites
The old Doyle'sRoo
m on microgaming was great! LOTS of daily freerolls where you'd need 1 raked hand for entry (you could practically sitout & cash in all of them).
Also on same network 'PokerTime
' (< they held a $7,000 freeroll on there, I think it was weekly).
Nordic bet (also microgaming).
I actually wish I'd played more on AbsolutePoker & UltimateBet. Tourney structures were good & had lots of traffic. Maybe it's a good thing I didn't play much on there though.... probably would've gotten burned for some $'s.
Lots of obscure ones, some that I signed up to via those OFC Challenge freerolls & buyins. (ie. ApplePie Poker, PokerLoco )
Google is your friend. Just looked up those $7,000 freerolls. They held them on 7th, 17th & 27th of each month, LoL. Some nice scores in those games! (600 players got paid, 1st was ~$1,200 & tourneys had ~3,000 entrants)
even an old CC thread about them http://www.cardschat.com/f13/new-poker-time-7000-free-rolls-104604/ & look.. Curtis was racking up the bankroll on there... running his $1.40 freeroll cash to up to $8.63 in just over a week!! (wtg!)
It sure was great back then. So many people were so excited about the game. It has really died out in the area I live in.
