Tried out a new poker site today, wasn’t really looking for one but came across a free $10 (no deposit required) on VC Poker and thought I’d check it out.

My first impressions of this site are good, they offer a wide range of levels/tournaments in Hold’em, Omaha and Omaha H/L. What’s really interesting is the number of ultra cheap buy-in tournies, they have sit ‘n go’s starting from $0.10+$0.01 and multi table tournies in everyone’s price range! I can’t vouch for the competition, but at least you’ll be able to get plenty of practice in for practically nothing.

A word of warning though, watch out for the “speed” tournies, I accidentally signed up for one of these crazy games and was very surprised to see the blinds increasing every 3 minutes! Unless this is your idea of a fun poker game I recommend you stick to the normal speed tournaments.

Another thing I like about this site is the deeper stacks in standard tournies (2000 tournament chips compared the the normal 1500 or less).

Anyway, I’m off to check out the site a bit more and see if I can’t blow my free $10 on a few low limit tournaments. Any practice is good practice right?

BTW, to get the free $10 bonus enter “pokernews” under the “Promotions” section of the deposit screen in the cashier. If you’re wondering I don’t make any money off this code (in fact I’m probably making money for pokernews.com by promoting it), I’m just sharing it around ‘cos it’s a good deal!
