    Here is something I wrote for you guys. I get tons of quality information on these forums and I just want to give back. Enjoy it!

    Welcome to Project Poker!

    What inspired me to write this was the fact that I wanted to help people get into poker scene because I believe it is one of the most easiest/most profitable ways to earn money online.
    In this guide, I am going to teach you how you can form a powerful team of 5, and make profit like you've never seen before.

    There has been a recent addition to various poker rooms called Double-Up tourneys. They fall under the Sit-and-Go category and has a max of 10 players per game. It's pretty much a standard poker game, but the payout structure is different. The Top 5 (5 last remaining players) win double the buy-in. So say you entered a $50 buy in tournament table, if you stay in the top 5, you win $50, it's as simple as that!

    But, I'm going to make this even more amazing! Get 4 other individuals, your friends, family members, whoever you trust. Form a team of 5 and go into one table together. The odds will be in your favors. Imagine 5 of you guys who can communicate with each other competing against 5 other strangers, you guys pretty much have the advantage.

    So, say all of you guys place in the Top 5, thats great! If you joined a $50 buy-in table then you guys earned $250, just like that! Even if 4 people or 3 goes in the Top 5, that's still a profit. Rarely will you see your team only have 1 or 2 members place in the Top 5.

    You think it can't get any better, right?


    Well, I'm also going to provide you with tips on how to get into the Top 5 consistently. Enjoy.

    1. The most important player trait you need when you play in this style of poker tournament is patience. Without patience you're going to waste your stack on marginal hands when you don't really need too. In a double up tournament the action is usually tight so you really only want to play your biggest starting hands. Even if you only win a couple nice sized pots on your good hands you should be in good shape to finish in the top five of the tournament.

    2. You can generally buy a lot of pots when you're playing in this style of tournament because most players don't want to waste there chips unless they have something. It's a good strategy to take the pots when you can, but if you get re-raised then you should be weary because they most likely have a great hand. As long as you don't bet to much when you're bluffing players won't target you as quickly for stealing pots and they'll just assume you have a hand so make sure you don't over bet pots in order to steal a pot.
    3.

    When you're down to six or seven players you should rarely play any hand unless you have a premium starting hand like high pocket pairs or high suited connectors. There isn't much reason to risk your stack in a big pot at the end unless you really think you have a good chance at winning the pot. Nothing is worse then finishing in sixth place when you should have had the top five locked up so make sure you don't get impatient and try ending the tournament quicker. Most of the time when players do this they end up losing the hand and are then the low stack on the table and in jeopardy of not finishing in the top five.

    4.Even though you need to be careful about losing your stack you also need to make sure you're willing to call a big bet when you have a good hand. If you aren't willing to call an all-in when you have near the nuts then you shouldn't really play in these tournaments. You can't be scared because a lot of the time people will try to push you around in these tournaments.

    Please remember, PATIENCE IS KEY!

    Now go out there and make some money!

    I think the poker sites are smarter than this. If they see the same 5 people playing on the same table all the time, they'll ban you and take your money.

    I dont know if it'll work out for the long run.

    Just don't make it too obvious. You can form a team of 10 or higher and just spread everyone around with different combinations.

    You can basically play by yourself, the Double Up tables are easy money makers. You just have to be patient with your cards.

    I'm a pretty sweet poker player, could you provide me with sites that do this as I'm usually top 3 players for a 10 man tourney. Anyone wants to team with a good poker player let me know

    question... are you even a profiting poker player? from the stuff ive read it seems like you barely have a clue. there's way more to poker than just playing like a complete nit.

    lol, and if you are making money from this, how long have you been doing it. i suggest you cash out asap cause they're gonna freeze your account and you wont get a single penny

    Interesting idea. Sounds a bit risky though. Have you tried it?

    I would think this is a good idea if you take it and use it as a foundation only. First thing you must do is think how you would stop something like this from happening if you were the poker site. Or even better yet just assume that the poker site is ran by at least a controlling interest of some casino, and try and adjust to how they may try and catch this.

    My first thought was how tight security is in casinos its not to far fetched that the poker site would at least be keeping track of IP's and other similarities such as locations, ISP's, etc. So with that being said this may work well if you can get sites that let you cash out quickly.

    Yes something like this could work but I would throw some money at it and do it large scaled for a one-time take, then adjust your method as needed. Milk it fast and hard, then move on.

    P.S. these are the ideas you should keep to yourself for a little while :)

    Poker is easy let me tell you.

    If you want to play it safe, just keep folding until you have an excellent hand.
    If you know that you have at least a 90% chance of having the best hand at the table, keep checking until the river card, then go all in.

    the poker rooms all have collusion filters to look for the same people playing at common tables over and over again. especially on SNGs. this won't work for very long.

    Why would you want to make people cheat at poker? They will get caught in no time.

    Learn to play the game if you want to make money, or just play it for fun

    Hey guys. I'm relatively new to internet marketing but I've played online poker for around 7 years, since I was 16 (using my dad's credit card!).

    I played full time for 3 years and it paid my way through university so I'd say I'm a reasonable player. I can tell you for sure this has no chance of long term sustainability. Firstly the poker rooms have many sophisticated systems in place to battle collusion.

    Players are also becoming a lot better at noticing collusion and people who are cheating after a few high profile cases.

    The other problem is, the best players are the people who would catch on to this first. And to make decent money, you'd have to be playing relatively high buy in tournaments (where there will obviously be more better players). These guys will suss you out and report you. The poker room will freeze your account and hold any money until it does an investigation and they WILL catch you out if they look in to it as most have teams dedicated to cutting out collusion.

    Haha seems like someone has already tried this on Pokerstarts. I got an email saying they caught some collusion between players and they gave me $10 credit and confiscated the funds from the players.

    Goes to show you cant do it. Here is a snipplet from PS.

    <<<
    PokerStars has become aware of two players who were working together in our Sit & Go tournaments to the detriment of other players. You were involved in at least one tournament with these players and as a result you may have been adversely affected.

    The players' accounts were closed and their funds frozen pending a thorough investigation, which is now complete. Fortunately the problem was identified quickly and they had only played in a few tournaments before the accounts were closed.>>>

    Don't try it unless you do not mind losing your bankroll.

    :) chip laundering at poker tables aren't easy like this :) ... first of all peoples who try this have no clue what really means poker , not even online poker ... more ... collusion at tables can be done if you aren't greedy raising/calling/folding is not only some commands most poker sites have complex algorithms which are practically checking each hand played in real time if one hand is raising a flag '' big brother '' will come to look after ur a$$ :D and with sure they will catch you :)

    ps . first online poker account I had on on february '02 :) .... think since then rolled few hundreds of accounts :) with decent profit

    2 guys alyways sitting together at a table and probably colluding aggressively. can it get any more stupid?

    collusion can be done if you use your brain and stick to the following points:
    - at least 10 players working together, maybe even 50-100 - the more the merrier
    - ground rules every participant has to adhere to
    - randomly forming teams, always switching guys from one table to another to mix things up, even switch poker sites
    - "cloaking": play solo from time to time on a few tables, play different styles, play against each other - the rake amount you lose is well worth it, considering how much this lowers any suspicions
    - first and foremost, play for the fun of it
    - decent poker knowledge
    - collude mainly for little bonuses like calculating your odds based on the cards your friends hold, discussing tactics and other players' style/behaviour. mixed with enough poker experience this alone can give you a massive edge
    - only use colluding temwork in a subtle way to snatch a big pot, don't attract unneccessary attention for a few bucks
    - play on VMware so the poker sites have no way of noticing instant messengers or teamspeak etc running

    this all requires a bit of work to set up properly, patience and isn't suitable for complete poker noobs - but IMO it's the only way to make a decent buck while staying under the radar.

    anyone up for it?;)

    Trust me this method will screw you over. Online casinos know it and there has been plenty of reports of people being rolled say red over 10 times.
