My own poker conspiracy theories



Following a serie of events - bad beats - and considering my years of experience with online poker, I have decided to write a few of my own conspiracy theories that will hopefully help you improve on how to play poker online:

Death Poker Table Seat

When you loose more than 2x your initial money in 1 table get out as soon as possible because you are playing in the death poker table seat! This is even more true when you loose for example with a pocket pair of Kings or Aces. So lets say I start at 1 table with $10 if I loose a total of $20 then I simply leave that table, beacuse I know it can only get worst!

Continuous Winning Series of Poker Online

When you are winning you will keep on winning! It happen already several times that when I win a hand and go to the next one immediately after with any type of hand I win the second hand as well. this is even more true when Im the chip leader or in a cash table when I have double up my initial investment.

AQ + AJ out of position!

AQ and AJ out of position are the biggest money loosers of all time. When you have 1 of these hands AQ or AJ and you pay to see the flop but someone else raises you then you could be pretty sure that you are going to loose that hand if you decide to continue - or maybe its just me :)

20% rule of bankroll management

If you loose more than 20% of your bankroll in 1 session then its time for you to stop playing for a few hours or even for that day. If you have more than 1 poker site you like to play then give it a try on the other one. Of course I dont apply this most of the times and I end up losing a lot more than 20% and thats just because I want to get my money back and I end up making all diferent kind of stupid mistakes that you wouldnt do if you were not under pressure to recover. Stop and leave!

You vs. the chip leader = you always loose!

Thats been the case in 80% to 90% of the times with me. even with almost perfect hands you can still loose if you are up against the chip leader or the guy with most money at the table. Be extremelly careful in those situations where you have for example AA and you got your trips on the flop but then the flop also is showing a flush draw or a straight draw... Most likely you will go all-in and the chip leader will hit is straight or flush draw... Been there... done that! The reverse is also true - if you are the chip leader then you can abuse a little bit more of the low stacks as usually the house will protect you as you are the guy with more money and also the one they know will generate more rake for them!

He! He! Its giving me a lot of pleasure to release all this deamons! What about you? What other poker conspiracy theories to you have? Please leave me your comment!

To be continued...

How to increase poker target traffic to my blog?



Today I will go to a different subject than my usual posts. I want to open up for discussion the diferent methods you use to drive traffic to your blogs/sites... but not any traffic Im looking at any kind of methodology or tools you use to capture the attention of users to a poker site.

I have to admit that I have been using some of the less recommended methods and I do spam a lot... My apologies for all the sites and forums that have been exposed to me and to my nasty method of registering, dropping a line with my blog address and wait 5 minutes to be banned. That was my initial strategy and although is nasty if you do it in the right forums you do get a lot of traffic of people who is looking into option to play poker online for free.

Then I tried to be more civilized and I do have a few accounts opened in a few poker related forums but its a lot more difficult to follow up as you need to be active in a lot of posts and then again this is not my life and I can not spend 8 to 10 hours every day on this.

Of course that when you search on the internet you find all different kind of options to increase traffic. I also tried that and it works but nobody is really there to look to your blog and give you input, they are there to run as fast as possible by the max amount of blogs/sites so that they can get their credits up and then they will have more people doing the same for their site/blogs. A total waste of time if you ask.

You will also see all diferent kinds of top 10 best ways to increase traffic or whatever nice title they can come up with, to see if you just click on some of them, but in the end nothing is really working. Also all the SEO ( Search Engine Optimization ) techniques have been tested and implemented in my blog but I still dont see the results of that... I need SEO for poker!

Maybe is just me or my blog that are simply not attractive enough to capture and retain the attention of people for more than 5 seconds...
All in all I pretty lost and I dont know what else should I do... Any one can help?

Please send me your suggestions!!!

TukTuk Poker Model - 1st $200 Freeroll



I have been thinking for a while now in a way to give you back even more of the money we have generated from the tuktuk poker model and I decided that I want to organize my first $200 freeroll to all those who register through me on pokerstrategy.

I have 2 questions for you:

1 - In which poker site - Pokerstars, Party Poker, Titan Poker, Mansion Poker, Full Tilt - would you like the freeroll to take place?

2 - Which day/time of the week would be more convenient for you?

I would like to receive a quick message from you either as a comment to this post or to my email and after that I will organize the freeroll in the most convenient date/time and site.

Thank you and best regards,

More than $10000 for free to play poker online



I have to pleasure to annouce that today we have passed the $10000 mark more precisely with my blog and the tuktuk poker model we have released $10170 - free money to play poker online across multiple countries:

When I started this back in April - 8 months ago - I never thought that it could get to where we are today so I fell proud of myself and of course I have to say thank you to you all who believed in me to register on pokerstrategy using my blog and my concept.

The question now is at is the next level? $100,000? What do I need to do to get there? How could I be more effective? Does it make sense to continue under pokerstrategy or should I go direct to the poker rooms? A lot of questions in my head... Time for a brainstorm session with you! Send me your ideas and let me know if you would like to join the team (= me) :)

I will be posting soon as the 3rd place for my top 10 competition is almost there but I want to leave the suspense open as there are a few players almost there!

All the best,

Travelling in China!

Poker in China


I'm at this moment travelling through China and I have to say... What a beautiful country!

I also only now realized that if you want to play Poker live in China you need to go to Macau as gambling is not allowed. But you can still play online in some poker platforms like PokerStars and Mansion Poker (and that's what I have been doing when I get some time for that :)

I finally had some time to quickly review the situation of my promotions and update my blog:

1 - The 10000 hands promotion

I have checked my email and for my big disappointment I didn't receive any reply from those who registered on this promotion, until today (10 days after the deadline). That's really bad and now I'm trying to understand what went wrong...

Was the target of 10000 hands to high for the period of time defined? I mean I did it but I also played several tables at the same time as I have already some experience but maybe for a beginner that's something you definitely don't do so basically if you play 1 table, lets say on average 40 hands per hour that actually means you would have to play about 8 hours every day... a little bit to much! So I need to rethink this promotion and create something that can be a challenging but realistic. If poker is a hobby for most of us then lets say you can play 2 hour per day during the weekdays and 3 hours on the weekend days. Also assuming that you can play 2 tables at the same time (otherwise I think that even for beginners poker online will be to slow) then to be able to play 10000 hands you would need 2 months!

Another reason could be the fact that beginners will not have immediate access to download poker elephant and/or they dont know or where can they get their poker hands. A quick explanation - for the poker hands in most of the sites they will be stored in a folder inside the place where you have installed the software. As 1 example for PokerStars my hands are saved in C:\Program Files\PokerStars\HandHistory, for Party Poker in C:\Program Files\PartyGaming\PartyPoker\HandHistory, etc..
So if this is the problem and the reason why you didn't send me your statistics just send me a quick email and I will reconsider your results. I will be able to upload them on poker elephant I create your graph and see your result.

Could it be because I'm locking the promotion to a specific type limit and type of game i.e. just because I play no limit holdem doesn't mean that the other also want to play that... And maybe I should use a different measurement like BB/100 i.e. how many big blinds you generated per each 100 hands. Then everyone could play at any limit and type of game.

Could it be lack of trust? I still have the feeling that most people that read my posts in forums and in the poker rooms don't trust me or don't believe in what I'm doing... I have no clue how to change that...

So I'm thinking that when I'm back home I will probably relaunch this promotion but on a different format. Please feel free to send me your comments and suggestions to make the next 10000 hands promotion a successful one!

The 10000 hands promotion is now officially closed and unfortunately I have no results or winners to announce. The money will be reused for the next one.

2 - Total amount released by the TukTuk Poker Model = $9830

I made a small change on the table and Im also now including the money I keep from promoting this, following my value of transparency. I dont want people to think that I do this just for fun... Well I do but I also do this because I can get some money to play or to reinvest in creating promotions like the 10000 hands. Im also thinking in creating a freeroll for all those who register with me, but more of that in my next post.

Here is the latest table of statistics:

3 - Top 10 Promotion - $250 for the first 3!

This past weeks the competition is being more exciting than ever. 3 players are closing the gap to the 5000 strategypoint mark - "Souza89" with 3951 strategypoints went from 4th to 2nd passing both "eudodo" with 3827 strategypoints and "vinstayl" with 3282 strategypoints. Im sure pretty soon I will be contacting them for a quick interview :)
Just for your clarification in case you are playing in different platforms and pokerstrategy takes 1 or more days the points I lock the points to a specifc day and cross checked with the other players until they get their points updated. The player with higher number of startegypoints wins.

Here is the latest table with all the ranking:

Well thats it for today, time to go out of the hotel for a Tsingtao (chinese beer!)
Please keep in touch!

Best regards,

Update of all the initiatives!



Ive been out last week and know its time for a quick update on all the diferent initiatives Im promoting on my blog.

First an update on the 10000 hands competition - the last day to present your hands is on the 8th of October. So far I havent received any results but I do have 12 friends who registered during the period Ive been promoting this competition. Im looking forward to receive your results.

In terms of money released based on my concept of giving back the "Tell a Friend" money (the tuktuk poker model) we continue to increase the amount of free poker money and we have reached the $8510. Please consider the latest statistics:

Its is clear that not all will have the knowledge and skills to get to the 5000 StrategyPoints. This mark is, in my opinion to high and I have already approached pokerstrategy to try to break it down. If that works that means that you would get the money from me earlier. If you would like to support my request go to this post on pokerstrategy forum.

On my top 10 contest there are still 2 places open but it seems that they are almost decided. "eudodo" and "vinstayl" have passed the 2500 mark and they both seem to be in good shape to get to the 5000 strategypoints mark. Please consider the latest classification:

When looking back to May when I started this blog and seeing at I have achieved already makes me want more. I have so many ideas in my head but not so much time to dedicate to this. I need to find the right balance between my family, my personal life, my job, and of course this. Im open to work with more people and Im looking for partners that want to help me promoting my idea. If you are interested send me a quick email!

Well I think this is it for today! Have a good week and talk to you soon!

Best regards,

The TukTuk Poker Model continues to release free poker money - $7997.50!



Just want to give you another update on the statistics, the top 3 promotion and a few more payments done.

The TukTuk poker model in action! Since I started this idea of giving back the refer a friend money we have successufully released $7997.50! Thats amazing, I never thought that my actions would lead to so much money released for free! This only inspires me to continue and Im sure soon we will reach the $10000! Here is the table with all statistics:

On my top 10 promotion things are starting to warm up and we have now 7 players closer to get the full $250 back. "yogev" is 1 of the most recent friends that registered through me and he is performing really well! Here is the top 10 ranking:

In terms of payments I will leave another 2 examples from friends that have received their money back from me - remember that you need to send me an email confirming to where you want to receive your payment:

Thats it for today! As you now Im also running a competition to see whos the most profitable player in 10000 hands and I will soon post another update of my own performance!

See you soon!

Are you an IT expert? Do you want to work for pokerstrategy?


Hello! is looking for IT experts to join their team, more specifically they are looking for a web designer, web developer or system administrator. If you would like to read more have a look to this link.

Why am I spreading the word?

Well pokerstrategy is giving $5000 to those who manage to successfully refer a person to fill in the IT positions and $1000 for any other position, so I will be using the same principle of the tuktuk poker model i.e. if you get a job and tell pokerstrategy that you become aware of this opportunity because of me - tuktukbkk - then I will give you back 50% of the referral money - $2500 or $500 depending on the position you fill in!

If you are looking for a job within the poker industry this might be the one you are looking for!

Good luck with your job interview!

As you know the competition to see who is the most profitable player in 10000 hands started yesterday. I have posted this on in different forums and the feedback and support received so far is great! Thank you!

Before jumping into my own results I would like to make note of two important details:

1 - The competition will be running until the 8th of October and during this period of time you can always join as long as you able to provide the 10000 hands for the final result.

As you know I will be testing this concept on my own and I have played the first hands yesterday in Party Poker - what a bad start... I lost $11,33 in 773 hands played.
I played 6 tables at the same time applying the pokerstrategy short stack strategy and for a period of 2 hours.

Here is the graph:

Not that Im trying to find an excuse for this bad start but never try to play poker when you have family visiting and a small kid running around you constantly asking for you to go and play! Your focus and concentration on your actions will be -120% :)

Quest for profitability in 10000 poker hands - Competition!



Im starting a new competition online for all that have registered through my blog on pokerstrategy where the objective is to see how profitable you are after playing 10000 hands. For the top 5 most profitable players this is will be the prize money:

1st - $80
2nd - $60
3rd - $40
4th - $20
5th - $10

The competition will be open from 8th of September until the 8th of October and during this period you will be able to compare your performance with all the others who will join this competition. All you need to do is register on pokerstrategy using my link and send me a email with your registration nickname and that you wish to participate in this competition.

I will also join and I will start with my current bankroll of $49.75 that I have on Party Poker and I will post my own performance during this period of time. But of course I will not be eligible for the prizes.

Some rules need to be defined to make the competition equal to everyone:

1 - You will have to play no-limit Texas Holdem at the $0.05/$0.10 level.
2 - You should start with a bankroll of $50
3 - You need to be able to present your statistics for this specific competition using one of the many available tools - my suggestion is that you use the poker elephant developed by (if you dont have this available yet you can download it here and use this software for free during 21 days which I guess will be more than enough to play the 10000 hands.). Another suggestion would be PokerTracker 3 where you could use their 60 day trial period.
4 - The starting date will be 8th of September 2008 and the last day for you to send me your statistics will be the 8th of October 2008. After that within 5 working days I will announce the winners. The 10000 hands need to be proven as played during this period of time.
5 - Profitability will be measured in US dollars. In case you play in other currencies the rate of exchange at the date of today will be used for calculation.
6 - You need to have registered on using my referral link and confirmed your registration nick by email to This competition is, of course, open for all that have already register with me before. All you need to do is send me an email confirming that you would like to join. A minimum of 10 players will be required to join for this competition to be valid.
7 -The prizes will be paid using the inter account transfers in 1 of the following poker platforms - PokerStars, Full Tilt, Titan Poker, Mansion Poker, Party Poker (only for the prizes above $50 due to PartyPoker restriciton). Other platforms will be considered if required.

You will probably see me around for the next 6 days promoting my competition so if you can help me spreading the word around either by sending this post by email to all your friends who might want to join or/and leave a post/comment in 1 of your favourite forums or blogs.

Any questions please drop me an email to

Good luck and let the games begin!

Help me to break down the TAF payments!



Ive been in the past days in discussion with to see if they can either increase their current Tell-a-Friend - TAF - promotion or reduce the number of strategypoints required to release the $75 dollars.

As you can see by my latest statistics out of 385 registered friends with me only 1 managed to get to the 5000 strategypoints and because Im running this promotion he ended up making $250. But it is still quite difficult and demanding to get there. So what Im proposing to is that they reduce the TAF payments as follow:

$10 at the 15 strategypoints mark
$15 at the 100 strategypoints mark
$25 at the 1000 strategypoints mark
$50 at the 5000 strategypoints mark

If that goes through that will mean that actually you will get the TAF money that I give back earlier as well.

If you can please go to this pokerstrategy forum post and support this initiative.

Now for the latest statistics update:

The top 10 promotion:

Free Poker Money Released - $7237.5

My head is full of ideas and one of the things I was planning to do is a small competition to see how profitable you are playing on a defined NL blinds in 10000 poker hands... But this still needs to be still prepared... Please keep in touch and make sure you subscribe to my blog for the latest updates!

My first video - Step by Step guide to Register on Pokerstrategy



I finally manage to create my first video and this first one has the objective of explaining to the new visitors how to register on using my tuktuk poker model. I upload it on and I will also upload it here:

This was done in cooperation of a fan of my blog that decided to record all the steps. So new visitors, in less than 5 minutes you will be able to grab the initial $50 to start playing poker for free without any deposits!

I have included the video also in the top of the blog so that future newcomers can immediatelly see these nice step by step guide.

I will soon be posting some more interesting activities that are happening as we speak!

Best regards,

Moving to a new apartment!


Hello again! Sorry for these lack of posts but my life is being under a big change and I have moved to a new apartment. With so many things to do (work, move, family, etc.) something had to be left aside and that was unfortunatelly my blog. But now Im back and hopefully to be able to post at least once a week with the updates and all the statistics and news of this initiative.

One of the most interesting things that happened during this time was to receive positive feedback and support to continue by one of the pokerstrategy forum moderators - thunderbird56 - to my blog. Read it here. That really makes me motivated to continue with my idea - I call it now the tuktuk poker model :)

Not sure if you usually see them (as they dont show in the main page) but I have received a few comments that really make me happy like for example the one from Garry.

I have also received a request from 1 fan to use my tuktuk poker model but for another site - pokerprofessor - and I have give him the ok to go. Here stays the link to his blog - - in case you are interested.

Its really nice to see that this is moving in the right direction and the more we are the more free poker money will be available to play!

Now the updated statistics and a few more payments made by me.

The top 10 promotion - there are still 2 places to be paid the full amount - $250!

The overall statistics of this initiative - Untill now $6995 have been released to play poker for free:

Payments confirmation - CCO, g4rry, CalimeRhum and AngleSh00ter have contacted me and they have receive the money I give back from the refer a friend, as per my step by step guide:

Again if you are still in doubt just look for these players in the poker platforms and ask them directly.
You can also see that I have activated 2 new functions in my blog that you could use to help me to promote this:
1 - The "Thumb This Up!" where basically you can leave an independent review of my blog for others to see.
2 - The "Links to this Post" function in each post so that you can a link back to my blog .
Well thats it for today, and I hope to receive your comments and of course your support to spread this with your friends!

All the best,

The release of free money continues - $5375


As promissed on my last post I will update you now on the latest statistics and top 10 promotion. Please consider:

I would like to highlight the fact that we have now released a total of $5375 from the poker industry and that money is out there available on the tables for those who truly master the game!

Also on the promotion Im running there is still a long way to go for "voyporustedes" and "nelinha" which means that if you are just starting you still have a chance to get the total referal money back ending up with a total of $250!

Another interesting statistic is the one on the end of the blog - the number of unique visitors! Looks like soon I will reach the first 5000 unique visitors which in 4 months is really good.

Keep on playing and spread the word - the best place to start playing poker with free money is here :)

Best regards,

The payments continue!


As the weeks pass by more and more friends, that have join me in this quest for release free poker money, are starting to receive their money back from me. I just would like to leave here a few more examples of payments I did so that there are no doubts that I do pay you:

You can always reconfirm this by asking directly to the people who have received the money from me. Also the feedback Im receiving is that because I can basically pay to all poker platforms, this is a great way to release some money to your old accounts that you wanna restart without making deposits.

I have to run so today there will not be an update on the statistics and the top10, but I promised that I will do that soon. The 2nd and 3rd places are still open so keep on playing and earning strategypoints!

Best regards,

Interview with "samiow"



I manage to contact "samiow" our first winner of the top 10 promotion we are running and I have asked him a few questions:

Tuk: If possible give us a short description of you and your poker career?

samiow: I was taught when i was a boy to play 7 card stud and used to win pennies off my friends and always enjoyed it. About 4 years ago I started playing on the internet on Pacific poker and would go up and down sometimes spinning up a nice lot of cash sometimes going broke.Last year I started playing live and thats when I signed up to the hendon mob forum.

Tuk: How did you find

samiow: You posted about your offer on the hendon mob forum and although I was suspicious, because it sounded too good to be true, I checked it out anyways.

Tuk: What made you register?

samiow: After reading your blog and checking out the pokerstrategy website I was happy to give it a go as all my details are kept safe, I received the money as expected and got lots of updates from you and were sent my extra $$ on whatever site I wanted, was really impressed!

Tuk: What do you think of this "tuktukbkk" model of giving back the TAF (Tell-a-friend) money?

samiow: It sounds too good to be true! But it isn't , I hope everyone registers with you after reading the blog, they should do..

Tuk: To whom would you suggest this type of model?

samiow: Absolutely EVERYONE wanting to try out poker - you have nothing at all to lose. There is no risk and its all reward, Join ffs!

Tuk: Anything special message you would like to leave for those who are still in doubt that this is for real and it works?

samiow: It is 100% genuine, you receive your 50$ usually in 2 working days and tuktuk sends you the bonuses within the same week you have earned them. A completely legitimate website/service, Thanks tuktuk!

Tuk: And any hints/tips you would like to leave for those still running towards the 5000 StrategyPoints mark?

samiow: Don't tilt, look for the fish, Play your best, Good luck!

It was a pleasure to interview "samiow" and I hope that I can soon interview again those who reach the 2nd and 3rd place.

Keep on playing and see you soon!

And we have a winner - the 1st 250$ go to "samiow"!



Im back from a perfect vacations in a beautiful place - Croatia!

I was pleaseantly surprised to see that we have now found the 1st place of the competition we are running - The first 3 players to reach 5000 StrategyPoints get the full referal money back = $250!

His nickname is "samiow" and he registered as my friend on pokerstrategy on the 18th of May. 7 weeks after we manage to reach the 5000 StrategyPoints mark and therefore we will get the full referal money back, 100$, on top of the 150$ that pokerstrategy offers.

"samiow" also recently won $7,381.50 with the first place in a $35k GTD on Titan and you can read his interview here. Congratulations "samiow"!

For 1 of my future posts I will try to get hold of "samiow" and ask him a few questions about the entire process of getting up to the 5000 StrategyPoints mark and you might get some tips/hints on how to get there faster!

Here is the latest update of the top 10 promotion ranking:

In terms of statistics the fact that Ive been on holidays did not meant that things are slowing down. "Au contraire" we keep on increasing the amount of free money available to play and we have now reached the nice amount of $3705 as you can see below:

I have some new ideas poping up so once in a while pass by the blog or just subscribe in a reader to receive the latest updates.

Again my special request goes to you - Spread the word with your friends and share this blog with those who might be interested in either trying poker for the 1st time for free with real money or maybe are looking for a new platform but do not want to make any deposits. In my opinion this works perfectly for those 2 groups!

Im always looking forward to receive your feedback and new ideas you might have so leave your comments or just send me an email

Good luck at the tables and see you soon!
