I personally think it is a bad idea, especially if you are playing online, where your luck can change in a heartbeat and then you will be hurting if you start losing money.  I say its best to just go out and get a job and play poker for fun.  I seem to do better when I don't feel as much p...

AK I don't really think is overrated, you just have to play it right, you can't expect to call an all-in and win with it all the time.  Its a hand that has to be played well after the flop in order for it to come out a winner.

The best thing to do is to play tight in the early levels of the tournament, and as the tournament gets to the higher levels, start loosening your play up.  Also in the later rounds don't be afraid to try an steal pots, your tight image in the early levels will pay off later in the tournament.

This is just a joke, some guy just suffered a bad beat and was feeling sorry for himself and made this himself.  First of all if I saw someone was getting AA four times in a row I would immediately quit, this is complete bullshit, I don't think anyone here buys it.  I have never ever ran i...

Yeah when playing freerolls you will run into a lot of all-ins, it sucks when I raise my AK or AQ or whatever and someone goes over the top of me all of the time with hands like 22, 55, KQ.  Since they don't know how to play hands after the flop they simply use the all-in.  I personally tr...

I agree, I think it is important to play within your means.  They say for instance if your playing ring games to put about 10% of your bankroll in the game.  Meaning you should join something that fits to 10% of your bankroll or if you don't feel comfortable go lower however don't go any h...

QQ, JJ, and 1010 are the toughest hands to play in poker, generally people will over play them.  Sometimes the best move with QQ is to just go all-in, don't try an be fancy.  Sometimes the right move may be just to call, there are going to be times when you are going to get beat on this ha...

Absolute Poker cheats people out of their money! I used to love it when i first joined because of all their freerolls, but now i suffer so many bad beats in real money games that im just sick and tired of it.  I email them and tell them that their site is rigged, and they always give me the same an...

I would say you have to just call the hand, but this is a very tough hand to play, you will be knocked out of tournaments because of this hand, but yet you can take big pots off of this hand at the same time.  I think if you can just see a flop that might be the safe play.  If you want to ...

Titan definitely would be my second favorite only behind Absolute Poker.  At least when I play at Titan I don't find myself getting rivered every hand as oppose to absolute poker.

They say a way to find out is to write something in the chat board directed to them and if they don't reply than there might be a chance that they are.  Although I don't think there are many out there online.

What I sometimes do if my table is loose enough is just call, usually you will get someone who will make a big raise and than they are easily suckered into calling that big bet when you re-raise them all-in.  If the table is tight than I would make a 4 x BB raise.

Absolute definitely has a good choice of freerolls to play in but so do other sites like Titan Poker.  Still Absolute is probably my favorite site even though I can't stand getting screwed over on the river as much as what I have been.

The only reason why some call it a bad starting hand is because they don't know how to play the hand.  If you go all-in pre-flop than you statistically have the best hand.  Although it can be a bad hand because people tend to overplay it after the flop and sometimes they will end up gettin...
