Full Tilt Opens New durrrr Challenge Page

Posted under & poker & poker news & poker tournament has recently opened a new informative site containing all the excitement of the “Durrrr Challenge”, an incredible online heads up poker tournament involving some of the world’s best big money poker players competing against the online poker star Tom “durrrr” Dwan.

The innovative new website section offers online poker players and fanatics the chance to stay on top of this incredible online poker challenge and get timely challenge details. With this new “durrrr Challenge site fans can view all the action and check out each hand played during the poker challenge, and get lots of statistics, including number of hands played, time of session, amount won, average won during each hand and lots more.

Around six months ago, the twenty-three year old online poker star issued a heads-up poker challenge for any poker player with the cash, time and talent to accept it. Any poker star entering the durrrr challenge has to bet $500,000 against Dwan’s $1.5 million. Dwan’s challenge states that at least 50,000 online poker hands need to be played simultaneously at 4 or more tables of no-limit Hold’em or pot-limit Omaha. At the end of the heads up challenge, the player who has more cash will take home the pool. Basically if you enter the durrrr challenge and win $1 after the 50,000 poker hands, then you will take home Tom’s $1.5 Million, but if he succeeds by a dollar then he will take home your $500,000.

Is Shooting your Mouth Off in Texas Hold’Em a Smart Tactic?

Posted under Texas Hold em tournament & poker tournament & texas hold'em strategy

Certainly the most despicable personalities at the Texas Hold’em table most every time will continually be the show-off. You have an idea of the one I’m talking about. He’s the person that takes a seat at the no-limit Texas Hold’em table and makes sure you’re conscious that he wants all of your no-limit Texas Hold’em chips; leaving the poker table with the exact same mind-set that he came with. Even if this guy gets shut down, he has in his mind that he is the top Texas Hold’em player on the globe.

Even as most Texas Hold’em players would prefer to stay away from opponents of this variety, there are those who argue that shooting off their mouths could have its rewards. So, the big doubt is: Is there such a thing as a good no limit Texas Hold’em poker attention-seeker or dishonest poker boaster? Boasting about how skillful you are in no-limit Texas Hold’em is mostly just like asserting: “I am the finest Texas Hold’em player on the globe, always remember to stay on top of things while you’re competing in a Texas Hold’em game against me!” Most certainly that is the nastiest vibe you are going to want to give off playing Texas Hold’em. What’s more, spilling too much info. about your no limit Texas Hold’em poker playing method can be damaging to your Texas Hold’em Poker game. You positively do not want these guys to get a clue about how you bet on specific no-limit Texas Hold’em hands.

In addition there are those no-limit Texas Hold’em players who might exploit bragging as a kind of no limit Texas Hold’em poker strategy, or bluff. Showing-off when you are dealt a particular poker hand might bewilder your opponents and stump them about your no-limit Texas Hold’em playing technique. Some people might consider this plan somewhat unethical, but it is important to remember that there are not too tons of rules against it in Texas Hold’em Poker. Poker is all about making a dollar out of fifteen cents and exploiting it to the max.
