Check It: DADI |

 




I-LoveIt

And hopefully, you will too.

If you recall, I mentioned recently that a website contacted me about putting up a banner. Now, I'm no advertising whore (although maybe I'm a bonus whore), so I told the guy that I'd have to check out the site. I really liked what I saw. But it doesn't stop there. I decided that I wanted to pass along something to everybody. If the site was willing to do something for readers and bloggers, I was willing to do something (put up the ad) for them.

So, here is the deal. On the right, you'll see the new picture and link to I-PokerTable.com. I know, I know. Apparently all of the other websites with "poker" in the name got taken. I hear ManAssPoker.com is a Crypto site now.

Once you've signed up for the site, keep an eye out at this here blog. Nermin, my unfortunately-named connection at I-PokerTable, has set it up so that we bloggers and readers can enter one of their WPT Satellite tourneys for $6, $10, or $20 and have the enire buy-in refunded back to us after the tourney. Details on the Satellites are HERE.

Now, here is my official review:

This site is great. The software is clean, clear and easy to use. The games offered are Hold'em, Omaha, 7-Stud, and 5-Card Draw. I do not know about Hi/Lo variations. So far, the gameplay has been good and the players have been fairly loose. I've doubled my original buy-in of $50 playing Omaha, Limit Hold'Em, NLHE, 7-Stud and 5-Card. Yep, I hit them all, and won on each one. I like variety.

It's a European-dominated site, so be ready to curse in German. Even better, curse in English. Yep. There is no censorship. Say 'fuck' all you want. I sure as fuck did. European players (in my estimation) are often looser, especially in limit games, so have fun with these Old World losers (New World ROCKS!!). The traffic is a bit light, probably because of the time-zone difference. The site has all different currency tables (I stuck with the ole USD), so if you are willing to try playing for Euros or some other silly foreign currency, I'm sure the traffic will be better.

There are no avatars, which to me is a shame. However, unlike Party, Hollywood, and PokerRoom, they don't have automatic avatars either, where if you sit in seat 6 you are automatically the bald guy (tell me about it!). To me, this is crucial because I find that in sites with auto-avatars, I focus on the avatar and ignore the fact that the same avatar has been four different players, each with different styles. Chat is clear, especially with the pop-up bubbles on the page. It's a little easier to play and pay attention when you got them bubbles and to know instantly who said what. Smack talk is highly encouraged (by me).

I'm also a huge fan of 5-Card Draw, so the site floats my boat. If anyone ever wants to play 5-CD and sees me online (yahoo IM: highonpokr, leave off the e for +EV) shoot me an IM. I'd love to join.

Now, I have to add some caveats.

  1. As for the WPT Satellite Refund, I'm not sure if that includes the fees (i.e., if it is $20+2, we may have to eat the $2).
  2. The link on the page doesn't tell I-PokerTable that you were referred by yours truly, so you will have to email me (Brodybanky@aol.com) with the email account you use when you sign up on I-PokerTable. I, in turn, will tell Nermin and he will make sure you get your refund.
  3. I would like to set a pre-determined date and time to swarm the site and fill up one of these Satellites. I am aiming for early February right now, so people have some down-time from the last DADI event.
  4. You can play a Satellite whenever YOU want. You don't have to wait for the swarm. No matter what, you'll get your refund. You can even play a Sat, get the refund, and then play with us anyway, using your own cash.
  5. Nermin stated that if he was going to include the $20 Satellites in the offer, he wanted players to also play on the site aside from the freeroll. Essentially, if we all did a $10, got our refund and booked, the site would be non-plussed. If we, however, do the $20, out of kindness and decency, we should stick around for a bit. I think once players use the site, they'll want to stick around. Even so, I'm thinking to avoid problems and help out those who can't layout $20 (remember you get it back), we might have to do the $10. I'll put it to a vote. Comment, damn you.
  6. I don't work for the site. I don't get paid per referral. I don't get any bonuses for referrals. I just think this would be a fun opportunity to play for a WPT spot with a bunch of bloggers. I also don't want people bitching and moaning to me if they have any sort of problems on the site. So here is my disclaimer: Jordan from HighOnPoker does not in any way guarantee anything. Suck it up, ladies. That said, I don't anticipate any problems. I just don't want emails like, "How do I deposit at your site?" or some such customer service nonsense.
Guys, maybe this sounds like a complicated promo, and maybe it is. On top of all of this, the site offers other $$ bonuses. Check out the site for details. Regardless, take a look, and if you like it, give it a go. I thank you and yours for your time.

Whilst the R.O.W team leads the USA 3-1 I do agree that the Euro players are far fishier than Americans.Some excellent loose aggressive Swedes and Danes around but if you hit the rest of drunken Euro land from 10pm onwards especially at the weekend I think anyone signing up will make a killing.

The Warehouse Grinder wrote about finding leaks in other players and I would love to be able to sit down with bloggers at a cash game and get some feedback.Could be another plus of swarming the site :-)

Count me in for giving it a try.

Watch it with the ManAssPoker....I got the Gay Porn/Poker niche all to myself!!

As for the new site, I'm in. What the hell, I'll shoot $50 in there and blast away.

I want to swarm...I'll make sure it happens soon...

I wrote to them and made comments on the MANY MANY problems I saw with their site. Nothing back yet.

HOWEVER - it does look good - Boss Network I believe. Places looks fishy enough but they do little ot explain about their bonus's.

I think I might give it a try also if I can get an anwser to many questions!

Yeah, well I've had some recent problems as well. I didn't get the bonus offered (25%, I believe) and I haven't gotten a response from their customer service. So, note that folks.

Overall though, the fish are swimming. If I can continue to make money there, then I'll stick around, bonus or no.
