Pacific Poker turns 11

I remember back in the day when I first started playing poker and how horribly addicted I became to the thrill and challenge of the game.  That feeling was intensified when my local poker room started offering No Limit and I learned the ins and outs of the game at the same time as a bunch of other newbs but just happened to be a bit better than them and kept showing profit so that I could keep playing.

Everything changed when I discovered Online Poker and the ability to play whenever I wanted.

One of the first sites that I signed up for was Pacific Poker.  I got to practice in small online games and then take that information back to the bigger games I was playing at the casino.  Life was great.

I just recently received an email about a new promotion to celebrate Pacific Poker's 11th birthday and it got me waxing nostalgic about the good old days.

Starting June 13th Pacific Poker is throwing a Free-roll party.
For the 1st 10 days they are offering a $1,000 free-roll and on the 11th day they are offering a $3,000 free-roll.

So, what better way to pretend you are at the WSOP than by playing along with the home game on Pacific Poker, and you can do it all for free.  Just click the link above and enter your email address to let them know you want in on this Pacific Poker Party.  Pretty simple.

So, fire up your computer and, more importantly, Pacific Poker and lets party like it's 2002 all over again by dominating some free-rolls for good old fashioned cash!


  1. they cant legally offer freerolls for real cash to USA residents only play money

    1. I do realize this, but that does not concern me as far as writing the article above.

  2. Talk about old memories! I remember one year when Pacific hosted several freerolls on New Year's Eve. In one I raised first hand with A-A and someone went all in. I called and faced off against 8-3 os. The flop was 8-8-rag. The turn, I believe, was a 3.

    I then got this email from Pacific: "Congratulations lightning36. You finished 11,996 out of 12,000 players." lol

    1. Yeah - I do have fond memories of those times.
      The games were fun, the players were bad and poker was a lot like printing money.
      Sometimes it hurts to think of how much money I pissed away just because I had a bunch of extra because of both Online and B&M Poker.

  3. Laughed out loud at the e-mail Pacific sent to lightning... :)

    1. I used to get them all the time when I was trying to grind tourneys on pokerstars
