Taking the plunge…

After the recent grinding at the usual poker rooms (Stars, FT, UB) I thought it was time to test some new waters, so I signed up at PartyPoker and yes, I used the good old bonus code Iggy 🙂

As I haven’t played at Party for a while (I started playing online poker at the Party play money tables ages ago), so I started to play at the “beginner” tables (micro limit). Some beginners there, but it seemed that the shark/fish ratio at the tables I played was like 30/70 maybe 40/60, so not all that much awful play and I cleared my bonus within an hour (I only deposited my standard 50 bucks, so I only needed to play 50 raked hands). After that I jumped into one of the new depositors “lucky dollar” tourneys and boy did those new depositors stink out the joint – nontheless it was once again enough to “stink me out” of the joint AK vs K9 s00ted…ugly river flush and I’m out…hehe…same ol’ same ol’…

Long story short: prepare to hear some new Party Poker stories in the days to come 🙂

Side note: This is the first account that I had to validate via phone, fair enough, they play it safe with their customers. On another note: You never know how rusty your conversation skills are, when you haven’t spoken a language in a while, hehe….I write english stuff each and every day, either here, on my other (english) sites or at sites I’m involved with (i.e. SitePoint.com/forums), but writing is totally different to speaking – after all english is only my second language, or third if you count swabian (my native german dialect) 😉
