About Me

  1. Q: Hi weird man, who you are ? A: I'm POKER. NO Chris Moneymaker, NO Daniel Negreanu, NO Mr. Ian Simpson ... me, me is POKER !!! Unibet alias: q: Okay, some 'basics' about you personally - who the hell you are ? A: I'm born in 1984. So just a 'comunism' baby and live in a nice Slovakia country (just middle Europe) - quite poor, but proud and we all working damn hard (low salary, but I think that is not all about the money?) I'm a programmer so quite able to understand technical things ... even more - using my brain for earning money - most of the time! Q: Fine and what about the poker - what's your beginning ? A: It dates back to the 2009/2010 when I start by playing on Zynga (Facebook) and know absolutely nothing about the rules and game. Start learning by 'just playing' and winning chips by "novice luck / feeling" quite often :happyshy: Play with spending 'play money chips' only with no real deposit ! When became virtual millionaire I just realize I should move-up ... so shifting to PokerStars first (alias: MadAdoStars) ! (because my friends tried it already and there were a chance by earn real money by freerolls, etc.) Quite soon I install also Unibet, Full-Tilt and WillamHill. I played tons of freerolls on PS, UB, FT and with running on my old laptop with 9" display it was quite funny when pop-ups flood me and I must click (without mouse - just touchpad) like nanonoko beast! I played 3-6 freerolls simultaneously on 3 different software and that was absolutely crazy! :haha: My main 'stage' remains PokerStars for couple years and there was my first real deposit (somewhere end of year 2010) (it was huge 500eur => approximately my full month salary -> as far as I was greedy to clear 'bonus' money ...) You know - I was (still I'm) nano-stakes player so I don't need such a bankroll and played NLHE cash games with $2 most of that time ... running to $5 and very rarely (tilt-mode) with $10 buy-in. Try also popular 50-50 format (6 Sit&Go where 3 ITM double-up money) ... YES, start loosing money as far as I learned with just play ... so not a good start of my "carrier"! Cut the long story - managed to cash-out 505eur on January 2011, so was really happy as good I was Meanwhile building bankroll on other sites by playing freerolls on a regular basis and when have couple bucks, just played cash game and bust-out :waterfall: ... nothing so special! Q: What about life poker ? A: YES, playing with my friends "private league called MadAdo series of poker -> MSOP" -> NLHE 4 players, 1eur buy-in, 1000 chips, 30 min levels ... winner takes all! Later on we extends with possibility of 1 rebuy per 1 player (after elimination, HU rebuy not allowed). From beginning of this 'competition' I start to became winning player (win first one of course with making quads in HU battle - villain had a chance of making straight-flush) ... we played somewhere 25-30 such tournaments and I had decent stats (won leaderboard with most winning - but there have been couple of 4th places as well (include unsuccessful re-buy)) ... I bought chipset, special plastic cards, dealer button, timer, poker cloth ... falling in love to poker and you all know how it taste! I played one 'bigger' tournament where was 7 players (include me) and quite 'unlimited' rebuys. Buy-in have been high-stake 3eur and after all I managed to bink (make another quads during it) and earn somewhat near 30eur! Was quite satisfied because I play with no worry, just enjoy the game ... Q: Do you have any notable/memorable poker success ? A: sure, like we all have some. Here are some of mine best: 1) (Jun 9, 2012) first HU: PokerStars 3466 players Limit Razz, finished 2nd 2) (Jun 30, 2012) 32 players private (CZE/SK) freeroll tournament (1 VPP buy-in as far as I know) on PokerStars: 3rd for USD 22.50 3) (Nov 18, 2012) FullTilt: achieving "Edge status by earning more than 10 Full Tilt Points over a 7-day rolling average." 4) (Nov 26, 2012) PokerStars: Buy-In: $10.00/$1.00 USD (using some 'free' ticket), 18813 players, Total Prize Pool: $188130.00 USD, 62nd place. USD 216.34 eliminated after 4-5 hours battle when defending my bb (play heavy passive) with QsAs and villain from button shove me (6s3s) and 6 on flop sent me to rail !!! 5) (Jan 25, 2013) PokerStars: Buy-In: $1.00/$0.10 USD, 14 players Super Satellite, 1st place, T-USD 33.00 6) (Feb 1, 2013) FullTilt: reaching Edge Silver status 7) (Sep 17, 2013) PokerStars: Buy-In: 1 FPP, 51 players HU format, 1st place. A USD 50.00 8) (Oct 20, 2013) PokerStars: ChromeStar VIP ... many many more ... X) (Aug 19, 2016) FullTilt: Freeroll, 591 players !FLIP!, 1st place. A USD 93.75 + there have been a plenty of bonus money from competitions on twitter + share of Jackpot deal ... I won decent money there (for sure over $300)!!! Q: What is your favourite poker game ? A: HORSE or Stud Hi/Lo for sure! But love Razz, 2-7 NL Single draw, PLO, Courchevel, Badugi ... maybe some more :happy: Q: Any favourite player ? A: Antonio Esfandiari (magician), Tom Dwan and Isildur :laugh: but I like Ian Simpson too! Q: Why posting all of this ? A: Getting really broke last days :waterfall: lost many money and I don't think it is because of my wrong play (wrong decissions if you want) I know what is bad-beat and how the variance should working. Problem - real one - is that I'm getting money-scared and that mean you should probably STOP playing! I don't need restart, I need something else - need to figure it out ... thinking about replacing cash games with Sit&Gos - I have solid results there (no real statistics available) and not enough (representative) amount played ... I have also 'decent' results by playing nano MTT ... you know me probably Okay, I should write more and more, but you probably have my story - I'm was winning player (but consider deposits/withdraws) I know game basics, understand math, pot-odds, starting hands, strategy, ... etc. but that is still not enough! I became to loosing my money never mind what I'm doing and how I'm playing. I wanna change this process, because I never re-deposit and bust only free-roll money so far (long time ago!). Any advice will be appreciated, good luck to you all. LOVE community!
  2. Dear Unibet, You are definitely best in the business when it comes to nlheSNG's. The 5max turbo is a perfect structure for this format. The amount of players in the pool is an evidence of this. Anyway, I think that there's many players who have totally missed this format on this site. This is why I suggest a promo, so every player in the world could get a chance to really enjoy this breath taking experience, playing your SNG's! Something like the last SNG leaderboard promo would be nice, but this time I'd like to see lower stakes including. You have really done a great job with these SNG's, and I can't see why a leaderboard promo wouldn't be anything else but a good idea! So what do you guys think? This would mean a lot to me. (at least I did my best with this sales pitch)
  3. What up guys, I'm back for 2021, lots have changed for me the past few months, and finally I'm looking forward to getting back into some poker. I'm going to be playing a whole variety of different things and also trying to get involved with as many community events as I can. I seem to have a more chilled approach to everything really at the moment which is great. I'm also a week into a new diet (this is day 7) and just started a fitness program! My plans for poker are: Grind some 10nl.Grind some 10 euro HUSNG's.Grind some 10 euro 5man HUSNG's.Play some MTT's now and again.And... mix in some Unibet Open sat's so a bit of everything really. I'm starting this thread to keep me accountable. Before a session I'll post here and after I'll post the result. This should help with keeping my sessions focussed I hope! Haven't decided what I'm playing tonight but I'm going to invest up to €100 a month into this little initiative, and set a deposit limit to match. Hopefully I won't need anything past the first €100 but we'll see :) Once I've decided what I'm playing tonight I'll update back here before I start the session!
  4. Apparently if the set daily number of hours for logging into Unibet account are deemed as more than one need, one will be involuntarily logged out till midnight. What is the recommended number of hours to set on daily time limit, so as to not to be logged out or be denied logging into the poker client? Thank you.

  6. Hey Guys, I am going to start watching Twitch to improve my game, and I was wondering who the best streamers are currently for learning how to beat the games? I'm not just talking about Unibet, can be any site really. I am playing on Unibet, but we can learn from any player I guess that is streaming their play and explaining their thought process. I'm on the lookout for good streamers who are beating their games and explain their thoughts well. So less interested in entertainment value, and more interested in players that are highly skilled, beating their game, and watchable! In these Categories: Cash MTTs SNGs So if you know any player in any of the above categories that is good, can you post their name and a link to their stream? I used to enjoy watching Uhlen play cash at 400nl, but seems he hasn't posted in a while, his website is full of spam at the moment too, so guess Uhlen's stopped streaming? So anyway guys.. go ahead share your thoughts for who is worth watching in the above categories please! Hopefully if enough people chime in, this will be a useful resource for anyone in 2021 on the lookout for some instructional content to watch to improve their game.
  7. Hey UB community, As i find myself in love with the pokergame again, i started writing about my story (https://juliano4fun.wixsite.com/mylifeonthegrind) to keep track of my poker journey and now decided to share it here for the lulz. Too lazy to rewrite my reintroduction just copy pasting first entries from my blog until end of october :-) --- New year, new me.. hmm scrap that, but allow me to reintroduce myself, I am J*, 35 year old from Belgium currently living in Brussels. I had a blog many years ago ( back in '08) where I would write about my pokerlife when the poker BOOM was raging and I got bitten myself by the poker bug. I recently stumbled upon that blog ( in dutch) https://mylifeonthegrind.blogspot.com/ and it was a great read for me as I had forgotten many of the stories I shared back then. Also after years of absence from the poker field, I started playing in a very recreational way as I now work full time leading a training fund, am married and father to the sweetest imaginable 5 year old girl. The recreational grind started again somewhere around the beginning 2019 but with big lapses of time in which i wouldn't play at all. How did i got the poker stuff restarted u ask? Well i always have been a big computer game enthusiast and as such, have always kept an eye out on twitch for some poker streamers like Unibet ambassador David. Now poker-wise, I used to be a hardcore cash-game grinder back in the days when poker sites would just throw insane signup bonus/rakeback deals just to try to get your action but since I restarted playing a bit more, I haven't been able to enjoy the pure cashgame grind as I used to many years ago. Off course, the poker climate has changed drastically with the abundance of free or relatively cheap material to improve one's pokergame resulting on games where the vast majority understand at least the basics of poker, even at the lowest stakes. Still, even without having read any extensive theoretical material well over a decade, I have been beating the 10nl games on Unibet for a decent chunck of green but I find the 25nl stakes to be quite challenging as the stake regulars have a decent grasp of what it means to be (over) aggro in cashgame. As of now, I believe I am only a slight winner/ breakeven player on 25nl, but I lack a decent samplesize as I haven't been grindin much cashtables in the last couple of months. Back in the day, I would sometime play poker tournaments but I never really quite enjoyed them ( or shipped anything substantial lol) as I enjoyed the much faster paced cash game action up to 100nl online. Anyway, from watching twitch streamers/ poker end-bosses like Jaime Staples or Fintan Hand or Ian ;-), I slowly got the idea to maybe start some donkaments from time to time. Playing on Unibet, I was pretty amazed how low the level of play is in tournaments and as the fields are pretty small compared to the 1k plus fields of pokerstars, I even found myself shipping some donk.. euhm I mean tournaments for 50x buyin while still feeling like I knew very little about them except for having heard terms like ICM, knowing that aggression is key around the bubble or to abuse the shorties when u build a big stack lol. Some examples of (very) low stakes tournament results from 2019: Anyway, after asking a 2019 mtt graph from Unibet somewhere around february 2020 where i had 100% of my mtt action, i was surprised to see that I shipped around 800eur in 2019, which is amazing since I couldn't be bothered to play anything else that the 2€ multiverse tournament and the 2€ galaxy on rare occasions since it ends so late ( between 1 and 2 am). Playing ( and winning) these tournaments, I discovered that I much more enjoyed the thrill of shipping a tournament over 30,60 or 200 players, than winning yet another AA vs KK 4bet pot in cashgames. Also, I discovered that I tilt way more from losing that same AA vs KK in cashgame than losing a flip with AK vs TT for final table chiplead with 15 left.. Adding all these ingredients together, it was now clear that I would play way more tournaments in 2020 when I would have the time to do so. How did our hero fare into the messy world of MultiTableTournaments in 2020? stay tuned for next update and find out :-) J'out
  8. Hey! What happened to unibet challenges. Now it seems to apply only for cash games. Before it was also in sit & go games. When Unibet changed that?
  9. Hi can someone help me please? A tournament I am currently playing has been on pause for the last half hour. The live assistant was unable to sort this issue and told me to report the issue here. €1500 Dwarf Star Bounty 16/12/20
  10. When you change even background/font in lets say Windows, there is this novelty/freshness like with using something new. Would like to have this with poker client. We have two sets of cards but i cant look at any of them by now :P What im interested if its possible to change this: 1.Diffrent set of cards (i think someone here on board was using some nice set of cards, but maybe im imagining things) 2.Diffrent fonts in lobby (there is this folder /assets/fonts and there are few fonts, maybe changing there will have some effects, dont wanna dabble into that by myself though) 3.Custom table backgrounds (this is the least since we have many to choose from, problem is many of them are too bright to use for me) 4.Changing poker client lobby background from black to something else EDIT by @Stubbe-Unibet: it's no longer possible to customize the cards. We're considering a competition where users can submit their own card design and the most popular one will be added to the client.
  11. But hey Big_boy, didn't you already tried to do the 1€ SnG-s challenge, and gave up miserably on the 6th day? Yes that is true, but hot summer is coming and why would i wanna go out, when i can grind sit n go-s at home? Anyway the hasn't gone as i wanted and i still gamble my bankrolls away like a lil btch, so its time to change the mindset and the bankroll management. So my plan is to grind 1€ SnG-s and only them for 100 days in a row, to boost my discipline and show you that when me, the biggest gambler ever can do it, then you can fking do it too! I do play the rakeback game as 5€ hexas and cash tickets and so on but i will talk about them when we get there. I will use only one nickname " 100_Days " and wont change it turning the challenge, i will probably update "blog" between 5-10days. Challenge Starts 07.05.2020 AND ENDS 15.08.2020 - GOAL also is to play 10k games!

  13. Hello everyone! I was wondering if anybody could tell me how can I get the cash game history for my account. Are the hands saved in some folders on my computer?
  14. Isn't the idea of a Happy Hour to attract people at off peak times? This promo seems to do exactly the reverse, it's like a pub offering 2 for 1 on a Saturday night :speechless:
  15. i thought we were friends UNIBET @RayL and all the other @ :D I came to your christmas party and we celebrated newyear together, what a great evening :happy:. but you didnt show up to my Birthday la st night:teardrop: guess you where sick or super bussy planning a suprice party for me next year but no worries the real party is tonight my house and your all virtualINVITED. Happy 43 --->and happy newyear all :)
  16. can anyone tell me at which point the 3000 chip add-on becomes available as the jackpot freeroll lobby is pitch dark on this matter. would probably be worth mentioning that re-buys are unlimited in the lobby as well, im sure im not the only one who didn't/doesn't know these fundamentally important snippits. be much appreciated thanks brothers. :scared:
  17. Just done the free test on testyourpoker.com. Am quite chuffed with getting 116, has anyone else had a go?
  18. cash game festival London freerollHi there i was woundering if someone could help me understand more about what i have won from cash game festival London freeroll (8851051) , i know its a package but how to do i go about using it ?
  19. A good day to all, As we’ve now come to realize Unibet hosts a lot of freerolls from the open bounties to streamer freerolls such as that hosted by DaVitsche and Ian Simpson, as well as, special freerolls such as the Community Rumbles and Cash Game Festivals. I’ve created this thread for you to share your experiences, results, hero calls and bad beat stories. Disclaimer Please note however that if a Password for a freeroll is to be obtained via a stream please join the streamers channel and show them support rather than just asking for it here. This however can be facilitated if you are known as a regular follower of that streamer. So goodluck and see you at the Tables!
  20. Step1 for 1e with 9 people. Paid 4x step2 tickets (worth 2e) + 0,1 for 5th place (rake 0.1e) Step2 for 2e with 9 people. Paid 4x step3 tickets (worth 4e) + 0,92 for 5th place (rake 0.12e) Step3 for 4e with 9 people. Paid 4x step4 tickets (worth 8e) + 0,4 for 5th place (rake 0.40e) Step4 for 8e with 9 people. Paid 4x step5 tickets (worth 16e) + 0,8 for 5th place. (there are no 8e mtt on Unibet so i took rake 7.2 + 0.8 could be higher since no one care for this 0.8mincash ) And final step5 16e with 9 people. Minus rake its 129.6e up for grabs (again rake i take for this is doubled up so 9x 14.4=129.6). Paid 4 places with real money 32e and for 5th sore loser 1.6e. Blinds with 6min will be more than ok. 1e MTTs could start every 10-15-30min once the 9 people register it will start. 2e every 30-60min. 4e every 60-120, 8e once or twice a day. And 16e on weekends or once the day at the evening. Will this take money/people from UK/UO? I dont really think so. This would work as a added incentive to more grind not to replace some other MTTs. So, guys what do you think :)
  21. We have a release today on desktop web, download and on Android. iOS will follow in the upcoming days. Promotions integrated in the client (pages not ready yet): February MissionQueen of Flips Quite similar than our previous King of Flips promotion. Main differences are that it's easier to collect tokens in Cash Game and you can collect them playing Sit & Gos as well. Also, bronze, silver and gold tokens compete for the same top prizes. However you start closer to the top prizes with a gold token compered to a silver and with a silver compared to a bronze.Valentine's day promotion (14th and 15th February). Bug fixes: Stability improvements to prevent crashesFix issue causing opponents avatars to sometimes not be visible at the tables For anyone experiencing either crashes or issues with avatars with the previous version, could you please let us know how it goes with the new one? Thanks!
  22. Hi Yesterday I've made my Unibet account and deposited 40 EUR which was processed smoothly on the website. The balance there says 120 EUR because of the promo, but in the poker app it still says 0 euro. Is this delay normal or is something wrong. Thanks for any feedback.
  23. I was just going through Liverstools Birthday Freeroll thread & was curious to see how many members had asked for tickets... Only 101 Of a possible 5000+ members, only 101 have asked for tickets. So our good Friends Birthday Freeroll has a prize pool of only €101 so far. There are 8 days left for members who signed up on, or before the 8th of September to request a ticket. @MarcoV wrote... We'll add €1 to the prize pool for every eligible/old member who asks for a ticket. Prize pool will be announced once the registration is closed. This means that our Friends Birthday Freeroll potentially could have a prize pool of €5000+ I know that's very optimistic, but €101... Come on Community, where is the love ??? We have 8 days left to boost @Livertools Birthday Freeroll. I set a challenge to all community members... from betting & bingo peeps to casino & poker junkies. Even if you have never played poker before. Request a ticket here Livertools Birthday Freeroll & come & join in the fun on the Wednesday the 27th of September, somewhere between 16:00-18:00 CET Do it as a birthday gift to our friend & you never know... You could walk away with some pocket money for the weekend for having some fun & testing your & other community members poker skills. Let's see who steps up to the challenge. I'll put a request in with the Mods for a special badge for the winner, if we can get the prize pool up high enough. Come on Community....
  24. Hi Everyone, Simon (Social Media) here, David Lappin is away for the Next Month doing various Poker Tours around the world. So instead of his regular Twitch Stream he will conduct a stream entirely out of hands posted from the Community! So feel free to post any interesting spots from Cash, Tournaments, SnG or even Satellites and he will run the numbers and review the hell out of your hands :) This will be in the next few weeks so post now and don't miss out. You can either send in videos from Unibet or put them into a generic hand replayer. if you have any questions post below.
