Haven't had time to write in a few weeks. Had finals last week and Christmas shopping this week. Finals went well and shopping went better.
Happy Birthday Jesus,

Screen Names Part 2
- Poker Champs: FiveOfaKind (registered a while ago). Use POKERGUMBY when you register. I play many games here now. Easy games.
- Caribbean Sun: GUMBY55. Tons of donks, especially low buy in tourneys.
- Party Poker: xxGUMBYxx. I don't play here as much, usually sit 'n gos.
- Absolute Poker: GUMBY55. I like the deposit bonus here. 200% up to $200.
- Bugsy's Club: GUMBY55. Like the small low buy in tourneys. Good mix of tough players and bad ones.
- Poker Room: GUMBYTHYNAME. Have a private tourney set up on Jan. 2nd. Check out previous post.
Come and say hi, or try to beat me. I'm good, but not great. Trying to get there though.

I also recommend playing in the tourneys at Caribbe, with the pound buy ins. Players are bad and apt to calling with anything. Remain patient, and take 'em out when you got big cards. I lost today with someone calling with middle pair after a big raise on flop and turn from me. Yep, he caught it on the river to beat me. Will play against these players any day.
At Poker Champs, I'm up over $120 after being down $75. Small change for some big players, but not me. Also won $20 at a friend's game on Wednesday. WOO HOO!
If you can stand a bad beat every now and then, this is the site for you. Like I said, there aren't many players there, so you need to pick and choose wisely. There are good players, but most of the players are there to give up their money.
Another great thing about Poker Champs is that they offer everybody who signs up rakeback. That means that the more you play, the more you'll get back from them. Not too bad. You get paid every Friday, and usually it's around $5-$10 depending on how much you play.
I haven't told you the best part yet. All you have to do to get more money is to tell your friends. Then you start earning money from their play. Use my affiliate code when registering. POKERGUMBY. I get some money back, but that doesn't take away from what you get.
Also, the guaranteed prize money tourneys sometimes don't get the amount of people needed to increase the prize pool past the guarantee, so that means that there's FREE $$$ in the pot. Less players, more money. The low buy in tourney $1-$10 are easy to beat with some patience.
The software is also pretty good. Can watch up to 6 tables in 1 view. Don't have to click back and forth through different screens. Need a high screen resolution though. I can only play 2 tables at once now.

It is on January 2, at 5PM central. I figured this would give us plenty of time to get some of our friends together to play in it. It's only $5+.50 and I'm throwing in $10 for whoever launches me, GUMBYTHYNAME. This should be a nice break from the hangover weekend.
Now, there's a password for the tourney so e-mail me or leave a comment to get it. I'd like to get at least 20, but I made there room for 50 players. I don't like huge tournaments where you can't see the finish line. Let me know who's interested.

Playing against the British players was fun. They like to gamble and they aren't that great. The final table players were good, and I got lucky going all in with a 9-4 shortstacked against A-9. Catching the 4 on the river was fun.
I outlasted 224 other players to take home 127 pounds, or around $215. Not bad for 3 hours work. Leave your stories under the comments, I'd like to hear on any other big cashes. A friend of mine won a tourney for $2000. Better payday than mine.
