So post black friday I initially tried to be a live pro. After my 3rd session went pretty poorly I decided I needed online. Just cant deal with the commute, the waitlists, the slowness and everything else that comes with playing live poker.

So this week I started playing on hero poker. I talked a bunch with the ceo david through pm/email/skype and deposited 250 bucks on monday because thats the max I could put on with just a visa card. Began by playing mostly 25nl and mixing in some 50nl to try to aggressively build a bankroll while also limiting my risk of ruin. After 2 days I managed to build my roll up to about 550 between my winnings, rakeback and bonuses unlocked but it was going pretty slowly.

Realizing I needed more money, I took the steps necessary to western union 1k over there. On wednesday the only thing i knew about western union was that scammers always try to get noobs to send money using it. But it was actually really easy and painless. Took me 10 minutes at western union, 20 minute drive back, entered the MTCN into the site and within 5 minutes the money was in my account. really awesome stuff.

with a bankroll of 1550 i could then aggressively take shots at bigger games and PLO. ran a little bad at 1/2 PLO, but still doing well.

results after 4 days:


Adding in 35% rakeback and the 80 dollars in bonuses ive unlocked and my roll is at about 1800. making 550 in 19 hours of play over 4 days is pretty retarded under normal circumstances, but its kinda fun trying to take shots in games and move up through the limits quickly.

My goal is to play 45k hands this month and have my roll at 5k by the time i head to vegas for WSOP. I never plan on having more than 10-15k on there just to be cautious, but enough so i can play in the midstakes nl/plo games.

Once I hit 5k ill probably cash out 1500 just so i can immediately book a profit on the venture and at least make it not a losing proposition in the very small chance that the worst case scenario happens. But I expect to be able to make about 5-10k a month online longterm supplemented by what I can make on days when live games are soft like during wsop or if I decided to go to the commerce on weekends.

Its not nearly as well as I was doing before playing full time or even if I were to play full time live, but its much more convenient to play from home and be able to play whenever i have a free 2 hour block and i wont have to put in the super long hours of playing in a casino either.


on an end note, i strongly urge everyone to sign up at hero poker. David is the most hands on CEO i have ever seen and does an amazing job with the site. Not to mention between the bonuses, freerolls, rakeback and things like tournament tickets you will probably earn about 50-60% in rakeback over your first 5k in rake paid.

Of course there is uncertainty these days about playing online poker in the united states, but depositing a small amount of money that is not life changing to you and trying to run it up is a good idea.

nicely done sir, and for live and online-I don't make a difference between them, I play both and it suits me well
Stereotype sucks and playing live gives you social factor too that will make you feel good.

God live poker full time is just pissing your life away. Online at least you can come and go as you please which is why if ever online poker disappears im screwed
also +1 to hero poker, knowing the CEO is crucial in crisis situations lol

great post

i think hero poker is the way to go. also, i think all of the funds deposited by players will be safe.

i have to admit i was skeptical, because they hired a ginger as a pro. but given that its hug a ginger day, and your testimonial seems pretty solid i think im going to try and sign up.

Its time to stop thinking like a bitch and think smart like a poker player - ket

I still cant get a UseMyWallet invite for cashouts, have to use paper checks I guess which I havent tried yet. Supposedly you have to WU some money first, which I already did, but all my emails still get ignored. While David himself is very responsive to our needs, support@heropoker.com has completely ignored my last 3 emails. A little bit unsettling to be honest.

lol yeah, Western Union is untracable and you cant get your money back in p2p transfers, so as you said its perfect for scammers.

If we create an account in hero poker this month and get RB, will we still be getting it after June 1st or are all RB payments stopping not just new ones.

i can't win on this damn site

The only hands a nit balances in his range are the nuts, the second nuts, and the third nuts.

Send me your ID, i'll look into it directly, no need to bang your head against the wall with support, some definite short comings there unfortunately with our shared support.

edit: ok lol, nice..

If you make it before June, you just keep it as it is after June, ie. nothing changes for you.
