Poker Money
He! He! 3rd post of the weekend :)

To finish the weekend in style I made it another 1st place on a sit and go of $4.00+$0.40 winning $216 and I completely went overboard on my BRM and decided to play the pokerstars Sunday Warm-up with a buy in of $200+$15 with a guaranteed prize on $750,000. I managed to end up on 100th out of 3996 registered players and make a total of $959.05!!! Here is the prove:

My 3rd big poker tournament victory

All in all because I have played a lot of tournaments I end up the weekend with a profit of almost $3000!!! I think I could go pro :) Unfortunately now is time to stop dreaming and get back to reality. Tomorrow another day in the office.

I really enjoyed this weekend and because my family is out I could dedicate myself %200 to poker and showed good results. I'm looking forward for my next window of opportunity to continue playing!

Interview with "eudodo": fixed limit helped him to get a spot in the top 10!

interview with eudodo

Another week and another player in the top 10 promotion!

"eudodo" just made it and as before we ask him to share a few comments with the tuktuk community :).

Here is an extract of that interview:

Tuk: "Could you please give us a short description of you and your poker career?"
"eudodo": "I am 33 years old, living in London and playing poker a bit longer than a half year. Actually, I started playing poker just before I found PS site.
At the start I played mainly in tournaments. I still remember these freelrolls with over thousand of participants and the fact that usually I got busted on a bubble. It was a long lesson.
In meantime I started reading a lot about poker. There is a lot of books about fixed limit and I took this direction. The content of PS site consolidated my knowledge and it helped me a lot. Now I feel that I am 'fixed' for life."

Tuk: "Do you still remember how did you find"
"eudodo": "I found on some site with poker news. There was a brief info about tuktuk-TAF model and PS."

Tuk: "What made you register?"
"eudodo": "At the start I was sceptical but I decided to have a look and see. I thought that as long as I do not need to pay anything and submit certain personal details I cannot lose anything. If you want to play poker you definitely need to take a risk, so it was not a huge decision. However, in case of tuktuk-TAF model and PS site, there was no risk involved. (I could have go all-in)"

Tuk: "What do you think of this "tuktuk" model of giving back the TAF (Tell-a-friend) money?"
"eudodo": "This is a kind of extension of TAF system that offers PS. And a pleasant surprise. Here again, you cannot lose anything but you can gain a little extra and if you want you can have some connection with other members of PS via Tuk."

Tuk: "To whom would you suggest this type of model?"
"eudodo": "The model is for everyone. Once you understood that registering directly to a poker room is usually the worst option (most often you do not get the best deal with your first deposit or rake-back - sometimes no rake-back!), you will appreciate the value of registering via various sites that offer you something extra.

Tuk: "Anything special message you would like to leave for those who arestill in doubt that this is for real and it works?"
"eudodo": "Doubts? You have 30 seconds to respond ... Decision making is a key point in poker."

Tuk: "And any hints/tips you would like to leave for those still runningtowards the 5000 StrategyPoints mark?"
"eudodo": "Try to be consistent and work on your game. Check the site you are playing on and the number of points that you can get. It is very tough to get more points on micro-limits on a site like for example Poker Stars, where they do not count partial points. (this suppose to be changed in the nearest future). But the key is to improve your game. With time you will change your limit and everything will accelerate. Good luck at the tables!"

Thank you so much "eudodo" for an excellent interview!!!
