PokerSlut Tour Moves To PokerStars

The PokerSlut Tour has had a long run at Full Tilt Poker but that is coming to an end.  The Tour will be moving to PokerStars to take advantage of their Home Game feature.  If you want to play in any future Tour events you will need to register for the PokerSlut Tour Home Game.

Three new games will be added to the rotation: 2-7 Triple Draw, 8 Game Mix and Badugi.

The Tour will be taking this week off but will start up again next Sunday night on PokerStars.

ChipMeUp–Buying A Piece of the FossilMan


I was scanning for poker news two write about and I see that Greg ‘FossilMan’ Raymer was selling pieces of himself on ChipMeUp. I have looked at the site before but never more than a passing glance. I decided to delve a little deeper and see what it’s all about.

I opened up an account and it was fairly easy to deposit money. I opted to throw $40 on the site and had to sent it to Tony G on PokerStars followed by an e-mail to ChipMeUp. After I sent the money and e-mail I had the balance in my account within five minutes.

I bought five shares of Raymer in the NBC Heads-Up event this weekend. My $15.55 investment could net me $450 if he goes on to win it. He won his first round match and only needs to win one more to get me a small return on my investment.

Rungood FossilMan, rungood.

Vegas Summer 2011 Plans

I have my hotel booked already for Vegas this summer. I am at Harrah’s from the 7th through the 14th of June. Couldn’t really beat the $35/nt weekday rates. I have taken a look at the schedules that are out so far (WSOP, Binions and Golden Nugget). The Venetian schedule will probably be $300s and $500s throughout.

My tentative schedule looks like this:

6/7 – $200 HORSE (Binions) or $230 HORSE (Golden Nugget)

6/8 – $1,500 NLHE Shootout (WSOP)

6/9 – $300 NLHE (Venetian) or $200 NLHE (WSOP)

6/10 – $1,500 HORSE (WSOP) or $300 NLHE (Venetian) or $200 NLHE (WSOP)

6/11 – $1,500 NLHE (WSOP) or $230 PLO (Golden Nugget) or $300 NLHE (Venetian) or $200 NLHE (WSOP)

6/12 – $1,000 NLHE (WSOP) or $230 Stud (Golden Nugget) or $300 NLHE (Venetian) or $200 NLHE (WSOP)

6/13 – $230 Stud8 (Golden Nugget) or $300 NLHE (Venetian) or $200 NLHE (WSOP)

I’m not going to play four WSOP events. I will pick one or two of these to play. Depending on how the trip goes I am contemplating coming back right before the Main Event to play in one or two of the mega satellites.

I am still going to try hard to win a seat online on PokerStars. I was planning to start in February by building up as many step 5 tickets as I could so I am ready to play each of the $700 megas on Saturdays/Sundays when they launch. Work has killed me and I have only had a chance to play a total of six step 2s so far. I somehow finished in 3rd or 4th in five of them for a redo and finished 5th in the remaining one. That drop down to step 1 ended in a 4th place finish for me good for $1.50.

I will keep grinding these in March and will probably make it to SilverStar this month, as long as work doesn’t get in the way.
