I have gotten into these following tourneys via freeroll winnings on other sites, carbons 20k, cakes 100k, and bodogs 100k. Lately I want to get into some larger tourneys. So now I have been playing mainly at stars, to try to get into their 1.5m. Its been two weeks now, and alot of freerolls.
The thing I hate about stars, is their card generator. It doesnt favor good hands like AK ect. Instead I find myself winning with crap like Q9 suited or 67 off suit. I started playing tight like I usually do, but hands like AK or AQ just wont flop. I call all in with KK only to lose to 78 suited.
Do you think they change their random card generator to favor this crap? No, its just too many people playing lol. Pokerstars does the most advertising, and thanks to moneymaker everyone comes there. They have deposits as low as $10, and take echecks and money orders. They also have withdrawl by check with a limit of $50 with no fees.
They have huge tourneys for cheap, such as the 200k for $11. Last night I played a 25 cent buy in that had so many users in it that the prize pool was up to $800.
Anyway, my goal is to win my way to the 1.5m without ever making a deposit. Pokerstars is a good site if you want huge payouts, but be prepared to play sometimes tens of thousands of players lol.
