Default Time to Party (again)

I haven't been to PartyPoker for about three months, since I went TILT on their $#@!% Blackjack game. I just got an email from them with the following excerpt:

"To say thanks and welcome back, were giving you a special gift - 35 USD thats already waiting in your account right now."

Yeehaa. Anyone else get any welcome back gifts?

Yeah.
From about a couple of hundred down to zero, zip, nada in a couple of days.
BUT now I've re-tooled and am back in the black.
I know now to stay the heck away from BJ.

Party does those "come back" freebies often. I got $25 once, but haven't gotten anything in a year or so. Of course, I haven't played there in forever either, so I imagine that has a lot to do with it.

They often too give you money if you give away $200 to them. Which is basically exactly what you did by playing BJ. That goes str8 to them without rakes and therefor they felt like if they give you some money again. You would take it to poker...possibly win more off others and then return to BJ and give more away. Just like live casinos do sometimes. They offer incentives and giveaways to get people to win off others and then give it away.

OK there was a slight catch. I have to get 10x the bonus in RHs. So I will need 350 RHs to cash out the bonus of $35. No problemo.

So far I've managed to stay around neutral and played 25% of my required RHs. My most memorable hand so far is I bought into a 10 person NL game with $10. My first hand I get dealt 34o. The flop is K-2-5 rainbow. MP bets $1 and I call. The next card is a 6 and I make my straight. MP bets $2 and I call again. The river is a 5 and the MP goes All-in only and I call to beat him with my straight. Nice to get lucky once in a while (good cards & nice fish) !! I hope to start moving into positive territory soon.

OK, I'm still even with about 100 RHs to go. One thing I noticed is how much tighter the site plays now. I think that it is due to the fact that you can now resize the table on your screen. This is a new feature on Party. Now anyone can multi-table up to 4 tables comfortably and wait for the premium cards. The $0.25/$0.50 10 person tables average $3-$5 per hand, which is about half of what it was a year ago.

Another thing is the cards seem to be terrible for most of the table. Many pockets don't even add up to 15 and unsuited. The flops rarely give you a set, flush draw or open straight draw. I guess these cards are more realistic than other sites.

Anyone else notice these things?

Well ... I guess not many other members play on Party. I did manage to play the 350 RHs and ended up with $31. I played one 6 person SnG for $5 and came in 2nd for $12. 1st got paid $18. Most of the time I grinded it out on the Limit tables.

I had also noticed that Party has a Freeroll (3500 players max.) for an entry to a WSOP Satellite. It's hard to figure out when the satellite is or how many players win a seat, but it is available. PARTY ON DUDEs.
