When I was in my early 20s I used to have the same daily routine. Wake up, shower, go to the shop downstairs (I was living in Budapest), buy caramel chocolate and 4 bottles of Smirnoff Ice. I would open up 8 tables of zoom and zoom away for hours and hours. I loved the action, I loved the pools, I loved the goals and challenges against the other regs.
Since I’ve been at partypoker I have played predominantly tournaments, because I didn’t like the climate of online cash games. Last week they introduced fastforward leaderboards and I was almost as buzzing as the sugar rush from those sugary alcopops. It’s been a long time since I’ve been on “the cash grind” but playing the last few days has really brought my love for cash games back.
Playing fastforward is really quick, lots of action, the players are actually all battling super hard and the games are fun and fair with no HUDs. Over the next couple of months I’m going to try to play more and more and I will update daily on bitB Instagram stories with how I am doing in the leaderboards. I will be giving away freerolls, fast forward tickets etc based on different things in the fast forward leaderboards, where you can either root for me or against me, depending on what your guesses are.
You can also come and sit the tables every day and play against me. I’m very far from a shark and I like a lot of action, so if you’re feeling like some fast paced action come and join the pools and see if I’m about.
To be eligible for the leaderboard you need to go to partypoker -> offers -> promotions (you can do it either in the client or via the website) and then opt in to the leaderboard that you’ll be playing. There’s leaderboards for all stakes from Micro through to High, both for NLH and PLO. I think the best thing to do is to opt in to them all. There is some insane value there with $75k in prize money across all.
See you at the tables ;-)
