Well, I signed up for yesterday and started my online Poker playing. I will be trying every online Poker provider and providing real life reviews of the experience as well as comparing how the online games differ between different providers.

One of the main reasons I chose was that they appear to be one of the only online Poker providers that have a Poker room that natively works on Apple Mac's. I am a Mac user with a 17" MacBook Pro although I do run an application called Parallels which allows you to run Microsoft Windows on your Mac using what is called a Virtual Machine. I will be using Parallels in the future to test the online Poker applications from other online Poker providers.

I found the signup very easy. I just entered my user details and created an account. I wanted to test the water with some real money so I made a small initial deposit as I wanted the thrill of playing with real money.

Once you are connected there are choices between cash games, sit and go games, and play money games. do offer numerous play money tables for you to test your Poker skills before waging real money. However, I have played on the free money tables quite a lot and the play does appear to differ quite a lot to the real money tables.

Well, I must admit that the experience does appear to be first class. This is my first journey into an online Poker Room so no doubt I will be able to compare when I sign up for my second room but up to now I am very impressed with, plus my cash winnings are at 150% of my initial deposit! Maybe beginners luck, who knows!

2007 Grand National - Won by Silver Birch

Silver Birch Wins the Grand National 2007

Congratulations to Silver Birch on winning the 2007 Grand National.

Silver Birch, a 33-1 shot, held on down the finishing straight to become the sixth Irish-trained winner of the Grand National in the last nine years.

Robbie Power's mount overtook Slim Pickings over the final fence and then resisted a late charge from McKelvey to win by three-quarters of a length.

...The race took an age to get under way, with a false start and numerous re-sets before they were finally off and running.

...The grey The Outlier settled into the early lead but by the Canal Turn rank outsider Naunton Brook had hit the front with Ballycassidy in second and Bewleys Berry in third.

...As the race moved past two-thirds distance Slim Pickings, Liberthine and Simon all came into contention and by the third last there were eight horses in with a shout.

Slim Pickings led the pack over the penultimate fence, with Silver Birch a couple of lengths back, and approaching the last they pulled clear of the rest.

...As they approached The Elbow, Power's mount pulled a couple of lengths clear, with the fast-finishing McKelvey starting to get into contention.

History of Poker

I have just finished writing my brief History of Poker and posted it to the Poker section of the Website.

Poker is now the number one card game that is played across the world and it has really taken the Internet by storm and with the recent legalisation of Poker within Pubs and Clubs in the UK analysts predict that it will grow even larger.

US Masters 2007 - Zach Johnson

Zach Johnson Wins the Masters
Congratulations to Zach Johnson on winning the 2007 US Masters.

Well, I had my first online sports book bet, placed on Tiger Woods. I placed my bet part way through the third round as Tiger was back from the pack and the odds had slightly improved so I stood to make a fair return for my wager.

I used Victor Chandler (VC Bet) to place the bet. I created an online account in a matter of minutes and then deposited my funds. Placing the bet was also very easy. I just navigated to the Golf section, the Masters had its own area and then I selected Tiger to win.

Here is a summarized report from the website. Please follow this link for the full report.

Johnson, a 31-year-old Iowan, played the round of his life at Augusta National Golf Club.Challenged by some of the game’s greatest champions, among them four-time winner Tiger Woods and two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen, Johnson relied on his skill, guile and heart to shoot a final round three-under-par 69 for a 289 total, and a two-shot victory in the Masters....In a final day that saw six golfers lead at some point, Johnson took the lead alone for the first time with a birdie at the 13th hole. He laid up his second shot on the par 5 hole, hit an approach in ideal position, and made the 10-foot putt....“I could tell from the fans what was going on. At the 14th hole, (Green) said we’ve got a 2-shot lead.”...Sabbatini said of Johnson’s round, “That’s phenomenal … under the circumstances, that’s just great golf.”“It just goes to prove that if you focus on what you’re doing and you don’t think ahead, you’re going to be fine,” Sabbatini said.

Oh well, heres looking forward to the next golf competition for me to bet on!.
