Gala free tourney offer


Gala Poker are putting on the following promo

10 free sit and go tournaments as per the following table

Earn points for wins as per the following table

Finish in the top 200 and share prizes of $50,000 dollars

Now I haven't played much Omaha and I haven't played any Stud 7. But if only to learn a new game format I will still have a go at this.

I am under no illusion I do not think I can get into the top 200 but it is a great offer.

Until next time.

Concentrating on Poker

Well I have probably spent the best part of last month trying to figure out how to make Betfair a winning proposition - and I can't.

Horses, dogs, football, motor sports ...

I have had successes and losses but in the end the margins of winning and losing is so small that unless I am wagering large stakes i cannot see a future in it.

I certainly make more profit playing poker.

In fact this little detour has helped me to decide whether poker is a game of skill or not.

In my mind:

Sports betting = no control over the outcome in any situation = gambling.

Poker = personal decisions influencing the outcome of a given situation = game of skill ...


So from now on I will be concentrating solely on playing poker.

This doesn't mean I won't be having the odd day at the races or the odd punt on England in the world cup ... but gambling will be purely reserved for pleasure ... nothing else.

Until Next Time

Keep it Tight!
