Everyone Loves Graphs

I stopped my sng challenge and moved back to ring, only this time I'm at the 6max games. Below is a graph of my first 10k hands at the 6max NL games. Poker Tracker logs me at 7.13 PTbb/100 and I usually 4-6 tables which is why I've been able to log 10k hands in 5 days (says 13 but thats just when the DB was created).

Battlefield Poker (Prima Network)

Incase you hadn't noticed I've added my own Battlefield Poker banner above. As soon as you click the link and register an account you automatically begin receiving 35% of your rakeback! As a super-affiliate to Battlefield I'm able to offer such a high percentage. Near the bottom of the battlefield interface is a button called Poker Action and inside this section you can view the amount of rake you generated and the 35% which is yours. You can cashout your rake once a day if you want! If you're a high volume player looking to play on Prima you can contact me at support@highestrb.com and we can work out a better deal!

If you refer a friend you get a piece of their rakeback also and you can set your own rate! You can give your friend 25% and keep 11% for yourself or give them the same offer of 35% and keep 1% for yourself, up to you.

Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure

So I haven't been playing too much poker lately since I've been too consumed in making HighestRB.com. I am however planning on returning to my SnG challenge very soon. I played a set of 4 yesterday and won 2 of them, took my little profit and finished for the night, quick hit and run. I'll probably end up resuming the challenge this weekend and I think I can fit in at least another 250 by the end of the month.

Next month I'm going to start concentrating on trying to win a seat into the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure (PCA). A friend of mine won the $170 double shootout yesterday and two others are going either way so I think I am too. I'd really like to take a vacation from this place. I've been going to school since January without a break and going down to the caribbean would just be great. At least I know that if I don't win a seat into the tournament, I can at least crash in my friends hotel room. So wish me luck that I win a seat and save myself some money, and see you in the caribbean!

HighestRB.com Opening

I'm pleased to announce the opening of HighestRB.com. It has taken me awhile to program all the background coding but is now complete and running. If you play online poker and do not have any kind of rake back plan you're definately missing out on a lot of extra money you could be making. HighestRB.com offers many poker rooms including the brand new Ultimate Bet skin, PokerShare. Not only do you receive your rakeback from HighestRB.com but you also receive a share of the profit PokerShare makes depending on how many points you earn. The more you play the more you earn.

HighestRB.com - Get Back Whats Yours! Please visit the site for more information and contact me if you have any questions.

Working Hard

I've been working quite hard the past couple of days working on my affiliate site and it's still going to take awhile before its fully up and running. I'll be renting some server space and buying a domain soon also. I'd like to make the site as automated as possible, after everything is done I don't want to have to do lots of work updating stats constantly. It'll become a real hassle especially if the player base grows very large.

In poker news, my STT challenge is going quite poorly. While my ITM is not too bad at around 38%, my 1st and 2nd place finishes continue to slack. I've completed a bit over 250 SnGs and am currently in the minus. My profit chart looks like a roller coaster, it is constantly going up and down...and up and down. The bad run of cards and horrible suckouts are taking their toll on me so I'm taking a little break. I will definately finish the challenge but for the next few days I'm going to concentrate on getting as much of the site coded as possible. When I hit my half way mark of 500 SnGs I'll post my full stats and charts here. Hopefully by then my results turn around.

Thanksgiving Weekend

It's thanksgiving weekend and I took a couple days off of school to come home early. I took the early morning train yesterday, arrived home 5 hours later and spent the rest of the afternoon sleeping. I won't be playing as much poker this weekend but look forward to playing a ton when I get back. I've logged around 150 SnGs so far and I must say that my results are quite swingy but I look forward to seeing the end result when I've completed the full 1000 tournies. I've noticed a trend in my placing though and that is that I end up in 3rd place way too much and don't have nearly as many 1st and 2nd like I should. I know that I have been a little unfortunate and deserved some higher placing when I've reached the money but I'm sure it'll even out soon enough. My 3rd place finishes count for 25% of my total placing, while 1st and 2nds are around 7-8%. Brutal, eh? I'm not sure if I'll be able to complete all 1000 by the end of the month since I'm spending almost a week here at home where I won't be playing nearly as much as I would be. I'll keep posting with my progress though.

After Thanksgiving weekend I'll begin designing and coding my rake back site. After looking over many of the other websites I've noticed that many affiliates take quite a chunk off the top. Many of them are earning up to 35% but giving back only 25%. All poker players are looking for any additional income they can get their hands on, and if you're not playing with rakeback you're making a mistake. I plan to give a much larger % back to the player, if not THE largest among the popular rakeback sites. Currently I'm signed up under my own affiliate for Party Poker and receiving 20% since I'm the only user. I saw how much more can be earned (30%+) and decided it would be best to start my own affiliate on other sites for myself as well as other poker players that are looking for a better deal. I have some friends who are big players and I know they'll be helping me kick it off when its done. I'll post any updates on the site as well. I hope it'll work out great.
