I heard stars was a rock garden. You may have to adjust your strategy a bit.Of course, it could just be variance. I find huge downswings are usually followed by even bigger upswings. It helps if you contact support and threaten to withdraw your funds. :wink:

Ok, you're screwed. Clear your bonus and get out quick. Once you start believing in the Stars myth you'll never win there.

haha I dont believe that stars is rigged just that ive taken some sick sick beats. I guess its variance since i have been running good but man it hit like a train. i have had to drop down to mouse type numbers to somewhat right the ship. but yeah as soon as im don with the bonus im off the site...to many bad memories now

shut up...no i over came the stars "curse" and was able to show a small profit of 1.25 BB haha...good thing i had the bonus so that it was worth my time. Stars has a whole different kind of fish...they are tight but stick to any pair all the way to the river. But yeah it was defaintly a battle against bad players and bad variance but hopefully when i head back to bodog the players will be better....cobalt what do you think of the players on bodog now? there more of them?

Since you're new, I have no idea if you're being sarcastic or not.For future reference, put "(s/w)" if you are being sarcastic.If this is a serious comment, leave strategy immediately
The path
of the righteous man is beset on
all sides by the inequities of the
selfish and the tyranny of evil
men. Blessed is he who, in the
name of charity and good will,
shepherds the weak through the
valley of darkness, for he is truly
his brother's keeper and the finder
of lost children.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those
who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.
And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

or you can fold KK preflop in a cash game getting 2:1

Eh. The NL players are just as terrible as always, and there are more of them. I've been crushing .50/1 NL for a month and a half now.As for Limit, I'm haven't really played on Bodog much. There seem to be a few more players, but not a lot more. I'm playing Limit on Royal Vegas and Party to build my rolls there...so Bodog has mostly been reserved for NL/PL.
