EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

hasn't been 24 hours yet , chill folks, 2 of the people left had around 400 chips left

Im just saying we waited almost 2 hours and then finally it played 2 or 3 hands and then shutdown and nobody knew anything. One person finally says he saw a popup that said the tourney was cancelled and we are all still sitting there because we never saw anything.
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

guys..let's let cooler heads prevail here

I am almost 99% sure that marcinsac hit the badbeat jackpot at Bookmaker within the last year, so I believe when he says his acct was over 100k and made big bets.

marc, I was one of the players still in the tourney when the site crashed. Every poker site has rules listed for every scenario, including one like this. Usually it is a chip count chop, which is fair as the guy in 1st gets the most $$. The thing is, those rules are for cash buyins...no idea what will happen in this freeroll/freeplay scenario. For me, I figure that I enjoy this tourney and have had the good fortune to benefit from it in the past year or 2. Bookmaker is very generous to continue it for as long as they have. If I get some freeplay great, if not I'll get over it due to the generosity of Bookmaker for this great weekly tourney. In almost any other situation I would fight for what's mine.
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

Actually, tt, that was a reasonable observation. Last night people were posting Bookmaker got shut down and shit like that.
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

Jake, you are right, i hit it in September, and it was wierd because I was playing in the EOG/Bookmaker freeroll while I was playing in a 5-10 cent game. I had 5-6 spades, the other guy had 10-j spades, they put the 7-8-9 spades up on the board.

The crazy thing is that after I hit, and it all happened so fast, i kept playing in the freeroll, out of habit. Even though I was celebrating with my roomate. And I was doing pretty good in the freeroll, but it kept popping up while i was trying to celebrate and call my friends. Finally I just shut off the freeroll, because I didn't need the money and it was bugging me.

Well after I hit, I got stupid and lost a lot of it back, I cashed a lot of it, i was getting 2 checks by courier every week. It took me awihile to adjust my head and finally start focusing on the good bets and eliminate the bad bets. At first I was playing like 20 bets a day! World Series, football etc. Now I study EVERY GAME and bet just the ones I feel strongly about while making a small 8 or 9-team parlay on the ones I like but not that strongly about.

UAB game is starting now.

If any of you have a bookmaker account, join the betpoints program. It is like them giving you back 1-2% of your action back. I got 2 i-phones, a new computer, stub hub tix, and cash. You have to call them or you maybe do it through chat. But even if you're a low-roller, I think if you make $500 in bets you can get some cash back
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

I like to view every situation differently based on the facts involved. If Bookmaker hadn't been so damn generous to continue this tourney, I'd be singing a different tune. Obviously I'd prefer to get something, but for that reason, I'll be fine if I get nothing for last night.

I usually choose the cashback option but have purchased a few items in the store as well.
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

Jake, I was serious about how some here treat Bookmaker. It is a nice little sum to chase once a week, and after I hit the jackpot, I didnt play in the freeroll for a few monts, I just recently started playing again because it's the best odds in the world, and my balance isn't what it used to be, but the point of it all is for bookmaker to get more and more people to play so they will open accounts.

Bookmaker has been very good to me, if I can make one complaint is sometimes they are slow at paying, but it eventually gets there. I guess I got a little uptight, but it was beause of all the crap posters were saying.
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

I just checked the UAB score for the first time, it's on a very solid pace, UAB in their last five games has turned their season around. My bet is looking good 18-16 11:07 left in first half
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

markinsac,


You are so full of shit! I gamble everyday for a living and support a wife and 2 kids as well. It is pretty damn obvious that you desperately need this money. I hope that you dont get a damn dime the way that you are bitching
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

thanks for backing me up, deal. I could go right now and sit down at the 10/20 table if you want to see my account funds.
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

what was the bad beat jackpot worth? And did they just credit your account right away? That's cool..had a similar thing happen at a casino as well at bo dog...:cheers
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

K-state, it got credited insanly, a little pop-up came up and said congrats you just hit the bbj for 165k, then another pop-up came up and asked me to rebuy because of course I lost all of my little balance in that pot (pot total i think was 7 bucks). When the rebuy pop up came up it was 165k, thats when it started to sink in, and i was still playing in the eog freeroll too as i was screaming.
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

I remember Deal With It and i talking the next day after both watching the replay of the BB Jackpot and recognized the name from our tourney..we soon realized that is was you
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

how much did you hit?

PS, after I hit, I started playing in the 15/30 NL games where the sharks feasted on my bad play. One night I lost 15k and that's when I stopped. So I went back to the smaller games trying to hit another jackpot and they would sit down and chat with me, saying stupid stuff lilke "you're not a bad player, you've just been unlucky" and "when are you coming back"

The shark welcome wagon
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

Yeah and did you notice i disappeared for about 3 months? When I started playing in the freeroll again, like 5 people said, "Who are you, do you belong here?" and "Does l5822l get paid if he places?"

UAB easy over! 71-61 (I had over 120)
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

That pissed me off, like you guys want to keep the freeroll at the level it always has been, when it's not designed to be that way. And PO69 says "I hope you don't get anything"

I did get carried away a little, but put yourselves in my shoes . . . I was the leader and one guy tells me i came in 12th place. Um are you NOT going to be upset? Then you have all these also-rans saying "Let's do it over!" I'm just trying to protect what's mine, $200 is no chump change to me.
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

at casino here in Vegas I was playing video poker .25 so it's 1.25 for the max bet..I put in a 20 and on the first bet machine locked up because I had my players card I won 144,000 and paid off my house...then about 2.5 years ago was playing in the bo dog casino on line and won 46,000 in about 3 days playing blackjack and video poker...it was almost as if the internet was broke, I couldn't lose...my wife looked at my balance and said good luck on getting that payout...took about 3 weeks but was paid in full...
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

Wow, that 144k is an amazing payoff. You know after i hit my jackpot I really started pissing it off at a fast rate. One week I was down (and this is a true story) 45k in bookmaker casino. Well late on Sunday I started playing their slots and won back like 30k then the casino said you have been temproarily suspended from casino play. I called them the next day and asked them why. The general manager said when any player wins 30k in a 24 hour period the casino automatically cuts you off, we just want to make sure no hanky panky is going on. He said to call him back later in the day. So i did and he said my account was fine, I just got lucky. They did me a favor by cutting me off, and I have NEVER asked to have my casino privledges back, to this day I still can't access the Bookmaker casino and I'm leaving it that way.
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

Hey guys, i didnt mean to sound bragadoucous, but there's a lesson in all of this. I told you guys about the 20k I won on the 49ers game, well remember when Stanford played at home to Oregon? I put 20k on Stanford money line, I just felt they would for surely win that game. They lost and it was that bet that helped me turn things around. The next day I was 20k poorer, but I started changing my goals.

I thought to myself, I always wanted to be a professional gambler but never had the bankroll. Now I did, but was pissing it all off on stupid activities, like the high-stakes poker games and betting every game I could. So I just asked myself how much do I need to make to survive without working. Winning or losing 20k in one day was ridiculous. So I set my goals to win anywhere from $100-$300 a day. And only bet on the few bets that I REALLY LIKED. If I liked a team only so-so, I'd wrap them into a 8-9 team parlay for like 10 bucks so I'd have action on all those games, but bet 100-200 on my strongest plays, I found my niche in poker too, I'm not going to tell you what, but I'm beating the game daily and that's all good. I don't want to ever punch a time clock again.

As it turns out I've hit some of those parlays for like $500 bucks or above. I stay away from the NBA, only play College Basketball. And during football season, I played College much more than the pro's. I found that the pro grame is very tough and played teasers on Sundays. Baseball is coming up and I'm looking for a sound strategy. I've always felt that the weather conditions play a factor, but playing too many games and the juice will eat you alive. So wait. And playing that Bookmaker "Live, in-game betting with a 30 cent juice line is for suckers. However I do keep it up on my screen because I've caught them occasionaly with bad lines.

Bookmeker is affiliated with ehorsex . com and they are a betting exchange where the juice is very, very low and you get to play the bookie, so set the odds you want. I know how to play horses, and it's the horse racing at that site that is the most lucurative.

If you ever score it big, don't do what I did, be smart and take advantage of the opportunity. Look around the web for smart betting strategies, and NEVER pay a service for bets. If they had the winners, why would they have to sell the info? Just bet and win? Yeah right.

Good luck!

Guys, it's a FREEroll.....there is always next week. Here in Vegas you hit a jackpot playing your own money and the slot machine has an error, you LOSE...no payout. This is just a good time with a chance for a little betting money. If I was EOG or bookmaker I would be looking real hard at if this promotion is even worth the headache.

Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

I got a proposal and its just a proposal, those players who had chips left, get those chips added to next week's freeroll, and make it for double the prize, tuesday's would carry over to next tuesday's, and you could do it from the break,
 
Re: EOG's $1,000 Free Roll courtesy of BookMaker, Tues. Feb 7

if you had 1,700 chips left, you start out next tuesday with 3,200. and the prize pool would be doubled, last tuesday combined with next tuesday.
