The ramblings and mumblings of a wannabe poker pro

Sun Poker

Haven’t played a single game today, been in too much pain with my eye, each time I considered playing the pain would peak and I couldn’t concentrate on making a cup of tea let alone sitting still for an hour in a poker game.

I did manage to get one thing done though, I found a new poker site where I can get a rake back deal. This has been bugging me for a while now. My two main sites have always been FTP where I neglected a rake back deal (how I regret it now!) and PS which don’t support rake back deals yet, and I’ve been itching to find a new site where I could benefit from one of these deals, trouble is that was getting hard.

I first tried to sign up with UB via a rake back deal from Poker Source Online, but PSO require a minimum $100 deposit before I can complete the registration, which is out of my reach at the moment, and that’s a lot to deposit on a site I’ve never used before. Most of the other sites I would try with a rake back deal, I already have an account with  them, so that was a no go either.

Finally however I found Sun Poker, and actually managed to find a rake back deal that didn’t require me to deposit $100 too. I haven’t managed to play there yet, as I’ve been in too much pain, but I did take a look around the software and watched a Sit-N-Go for a while and I think I’ll enjoy my time there, the software is very similar to that used by Poker Stars which I am used to, and they use the same system for player notes / chat that PS do which is my preferred method.

More good news came when the nice people at support gave me $5 for free, I’m not sure whether this is a standard thing, or because I replied to an e-mail letting them know how I found there site and why I like it and such, either way I’m very pleased 🙂

Supported :-)

I’m feeling very supported at the moment. I’ve been struggling to get data on my Poker Stars sessions for my sessions before I started to download the data locally, so that I could import them into Poker Prospector, so that Poker Prospector will get an accurate picture of my games history and my bankroll balance and would just like to say that the support teams at Poker Stars and Poker Academy (makers of Poker Prospector) have been extremely helpful and I couldn’t have got it done without there help.

Poker Stars has been kind enough to send me whatever data I asked for, as far back as my very first game over a month a go, and have done so in numerous formats, when one wasn’t suitable. The support at Poker Academy has then patiently and efficiently guided me through various options to import this data into Poker Prospector so that the software will have an accurate picture of my game histories and bankroll fluctuations before I started to download the data locally.

Now that all that is done, I can start to post graphs of my bankroll, something I’ve been wanting to do since I first gave Prospector a trial run on the play money tables back on Full Tilt.
