Default First deposit on Full Tilt.

Hello everyone I am RatMikesPizza. On December first I will be turning 18 years old and I plan on depositing about $50 on Full Tilt. Does anyone have any general tips for the "day one" newbie? I've played poker regularly so I understand how to play the games they offer on Full Tilt.

They probably just didn't. They're basically an illegal operation so it wouldn't be a stretch to assume they'd make an avatar that could be bordering on violating copyright laws.

Depends on who you ask. Bill Frist would probably say it's worse.

1) Get rakeback. Use google. 27% is the standard rakeback amount for full tilt. This is vital if you plan on playing poker seriously since once you've made an account without rakeback its next to impossible to get rakeback at a later date.

2) Avatar conversation is a joke based on another thread, there are no lucky or unlucky avatars obviously.

3) regularly post hand histories in the strategy forums here for feedback when you think you are making mistakes

Good luck at the tables, if you ever need any strat or general poker advice feel free to PM me.

actually it was a joke based on us both using the angry plant, and in a broader sense a joke based on people thinking shit like this matters.

having said that, i have determined the angry plant to be extremely unlucky and might change it up, especially if a ginger becomes available.

also @OP read everything you can get your hands on.
