In Texas Hold'Em poker a raise must be equal to or above any previous bets or raises? Comments?

[Blatant SPAM removed]

Nothing to really comment on here. This is just a rule.

I'm moving this post to the SPAM section, since it's pretty clear you are just plugging your site.

Since his name is spam, does that mean that all his posts go to the spam section??? j/k :D

Decent site
I got an xbox through and it was pretty easy. I played 100 (rakes) hands at (one of the newer pokersites - kinda slow) and then referred a couple of buddies to do it. They got PS2 games and I got an xbox. I'd like to get the chips, but I already have an account at Pacificpoker. The site is fairly new I think but decent.

Talking Poker 02-07-05 12:35 PM

How ironic that you and the original poster both have the same IP address.

Seriously - that's enough of the spam and trickery. You've got your name out there... now let it be. No more warnings.

Talking Poker 02-07-05 12:38 PM

Just a quick warning to everyone else... when a user creates multiple accounts so he can reply to his own thread to try to give himself some credibility.... Well, call me crazy, but I think that's at least "shady," if not much worse (like an obvious scam).

Reply to scam suspicions
Not shady, not trickery, simply an attempt to circumvent the system and gain exposure to as many users as possible. Is the integrity of a Mercedes Benz compromised by the craftiness of its saleperson?
There are a lack of forums that allow simple advertising. If you know of any I would be grateful to hear about them. In the meantime, please visit our and thoroughly read through the information provided. The concept is simple: play poker and receive a prize or refer some friends and receive a better prize. Try a promo. But I ask you, when you're playing with your free chips or listening to your free iPod, please return here with an apology and an advocation. Cheers.

Your Latin is just about as bad as your website.

Try RGP w/ your spam. 02-14-05 12:20 PM

Just be happy!
Cher Aequitas58,
It is not obvious what ails , but if a free 500-piece set of will remedy the problem then let know. Cheers.

LOL. A 500 piece chip set would far from cure me. Are you really putting it up for free? Then offer it (as an added bonus) to the next TalkingPoker Tournament winner ... or, put it up as a bounty on your head.

By the way, I took 4 years of Latin in college, and missed a minor by 6 credits. You're not going to impress me w/ lines from a Google search. 02-14-05 12:55 PM

Chips aren't your thing?
Hi Aequitas58,
No need for . If you take advantage of promotion 1 or 2, we'd be glad to send you an Xbox or some DVDs? Or an iPod if you're really determined! Cheers.

You have been warned about Keeping your Spam to the proper area...
Do NOT send Private Message Spam.

And Mr. Spam boy, Please check your PMs now.

On a side note...
Would anyone in their right mind want to support a site that Uses Spam?
Especially a site that posts an obviously useless question in order to spam their site?
Especially a site that sends PMs spamming their site?


Talking Poker 02-14-05 05:36 PM

I hope I don't hear about anyone supporting this guy's nonsense.

If I get complaints about you (pokerfamous) sending spam PMs from this point on, I'll have no choice but to ban you and block your IP. So don't even try it.

Enough already.

ChipFish 02-14-05 05:41 PM

Please consider this as a complaint.

New Guy 02-14-05 06:38 PM

This guy wants to ask a dumb question just to spam his site and then lie to act like the site came thru and produced prizes and follows all this by defending what he's doing? Are you kidding me.I fyou think I would deposite One penny in a site that is run by a loser like that your crazy.Not only should this guy be banned right away but anyone that goes there should be as well!!!

BrianSwa 02-14-05 07:32 PM

To the New Guy,
Hi New Guy,
Insightful opinion, however, uninformed. Perhaps if you took the time to actually (misspelled for Aequitas58: Feel better?) the site before bashing it you would see that doesn't require any money in order for you to receive your prize. You simply have to join one of the reputable pokerrooms (i.e. Absolutepoker, Fastpoker, Pacificpoker), play some hands and, if you're looking to receive one of the grander prizes, then refer some friends to do the same. doesn't want any of your money. Take a minute and read through it.

To ChipFish & Talking Poker,
understands spam to be defined as bulk quantities of advertising or like material sent via email or some other electronic medium such as PM. We have not violated this rule. If you believe otherwise, please provide an explanation as to how.
Also, within this discussion board lurks a tremendous amount of animosity and cynicism which is understandable given the amount of scams present on the web, but anyone who takes the time to read our will realize that we run on a similar concept as the older promotion site. We do not ask for money or sensitive information. We simply guide you through a registration process on one of the reputable pokersites and send you a prize once you meet the simple requirements (i.e. minimum deposit, minimum number of raked hands) Thank you and enjoy!

New Guy 02-15-05 12:00 PM

fact is
you lied and acted like you were someone else.Thats not cool and I wont go to your site nor will I tell anyone about it for that reason alone.You have to be straight and not make up a fake name to hype your site.If your site was worth a damn you wouldnt need to post as a fake person. 02-15-05 01:30 PM

No need to be frustrated New Guy...
Hi New Guy,
You are indeed correct that a perceivably reputable organization would not need to be advocated with , however, our (failed) attempt was intended to dispell the automatic suspicion that arises when seeing an advert like ours. We apologize for the deception. We will have to avoid such strategies in the future or, at least, ensure that we are not caught red-handed. Thank you for explaining it so eloquently New Guy. Cheers!

PS: Why cut off your nose to spite your face? If you're genuinely interested in promotions and have a basic understanding of hold'em poker then feel free to take advantage of one of offers.

ChipFish 02-15-05 03:31 PM

You are annoying me now (yet I cannot look away lol :))

I honestly think everyone should click one of his links...
Go ahead... pick anyone above this one.

:D :eek: :p

Aequitas58 02-15-05 03:33 PM

I don't know if you're a headcase, or you're really stupid. Your use of "elegant" words (however refreshing in this seemingly non-educated world) comes up short because you're using the words incorrectly.

You guess you're not seeing the point ... I'll break it down for you: People around here don't want to feel scammed. You posted blatant spam, replied to yourself as to its credibility, and now you're arguing back and forth with the various members who called you on it.

If you have a legitimate website, and you believe in it, then be honest about it. Stick around and post poker-related content. Build a reputation. Members will start believing that you are "for real" and you might make some affiliate revenue. From what I can tell, nearly all of your posts contain links and w/ some kind of deal.

I'm sure if you keep it up, you'll be banned. But, you don't have to take my word for it.
