No Poker at all!

I have hardly played a hand now for weeks and the truth of it is that I am not missing it! I have withdrawn the remainder of my poker bankroll and used it to help with my float for matched betting. I don't miss the variance and I certainly don;t miss the grinding like an idiot to break even and make money from rakeback. It was boring, time consuming and if I am totally honest, not much fun.

This matched betting is fun, a lot less variance and a more regular income. I think it was miles easier to get into having come from a poker background, so for that I am grateful.

I do plan to play the odd poker game recreationally and even take it more seriously again if they ever bring back the Yanks, French and or Italians. All these governments have basically ruined poker IMO. Everywhere the tables are pretty much rock gardens full of regs grinding their asses off to break even. Fuck that.

I hope you are all well and thanks for reading.



  1. Mick do you have any reading materials on matched betting? Would appreciate any advice you can give, agree poker is losing both its appeal and value.

  2. Kevin, if you go to Martin Lewis' and then navigate to the Forum, Gambling Introductory Offers Loopholes section you will find all the advice and explanations of matched betting you could ever want.

  3. seems fair enough mate. recreational poker can be a real fucking ballbreaker .... especially that nlhe shit :)
