100% load bonus/are NL holdem players good at 7 card stud?
I made my account at titanpoker.com
and they gave me an automatic $10 bonus for joining and also matched my 1st deposit to earn. By earn I mean as you play, you earn titan points. every 1000 points you accumulate you recieve $10 until the 100% bonus has been reached.
example: my deposit $50.00+$10 immediately, then I earned 1000 points = $10, got to 2000 = $10, etc. until 5000 points.
I made that deposit in August 2006 and my g-friend made hers on Oct. 17th with the same promotion still on. I think that promotion is always active!
Great Site by the way.
Cool idea. I thought I'd share
The deal is still on too!
Also, is it just me but I have been playin NL Texas
Holdem for 1 yr. Last night I decided to try 7 card stud for my 1st time. I understood the rules, but I smoked those guys. Skunked all 3 opponents in under 1 hr. it was .05/.10 for raising. I wanted to be careful not to lose much so I only took $1.00 in. I left an hour later with $8.85 and it seemed so easy! So my question is: Are texas holdem players better at 7 card stud than 7 card stud players are?
My experience there was that I folded a lot more than they did. They called raise after raise and I just played in hands where I had a good starting hand.
I believe we may be better because we are used to waiting for a pair or high/ suited cards to be dealt in our pocket. The mistakes in NL are far worse than in 7 card stud (must have been pot limit). So we are more patient.
What does everyone else think?
