From $5 to $564 – Am I turning into a poker shark?

I’ve won $564!!!  You heard me.  $564!!!!  And it all started with a measly $5 no-deposit bonus at JonWoodGaming. I didn’t win all of the $564 at JWG.  $464 was won at JWG, and as I’ve explained in a previous post much of this money – I would estimate about half – was won because there was […]

LTD Poker is a Scam

I have lost my patience with LTD Poker. I thought I was going to get a $50 bonus from them for signing up with Noble Poker, as indicated on their website.

I’ve been reading up on “rakebacks” and trying to understand why certain online poker rooms, like Party and Paradise, do not allow them, and may even be cracking down on affiliates who offer them. In short the problem seems to be that many affiliates who offer rakebacks do unscrupulous things. In a later post I […]

Are Poker Affiliates Financially Futile?

According to Bill, at Bill’s Poker Blog, it is difficult for a poker blogger to make good money from poker affiliate programs. He figures that a poker blogger would need about 500,000 ad viewers to earn at most $150. How does he get these numbers? I’ll explain, but first I need to define some terms. […]
