Exclusive Interview with TheBigDirty

Today, I got a exclusive interview with Kushmoney Poker Tour event #2 winner TheBigDirty.

1. Please introduce yourself to my readers.
Thanks for the props Deneil, happy to do the interview for your readers. My name is Alex. It is my middle name, and the cool character I choose as my poker alter ego when I started playing in back room social clubs as a teenager. We started playing every Monday night, a $2/$4 limit game. We would cash in for $50 & the house would match. Pay it back with tip when we cashed out, they loved us. I was hooked!

2. How long have you been playing poker online?
Online poker was introduced to me after college, I was a sales manager & witnessed online poker rooms bankrupt a coworker & destroy a friends marriage. Needless to say I wasn't a fan. But I loved to play live, & now, recently broke a 1000 games online.

3. What is your biggest challenge as a online poker player?
My biggest challenge is to not get sucked in. You face so many players from all over the world, so many different styles, so many anonymous opponents. Too much bluffing goes on online. You adjust, you learn, & you take advantage. Some days, I think the biggest challenge is simply not throwing my cordless mouse across the room.

4. What is your favorite online poker room?
I started with the big guys, UB & Party Poker. Place 2nd in a UB FR once, 3800 seats, 6 hours & all I got was a lousy golf shirt. Now I stick to Reefer Poker on the Merge Network. They offer a fun brand of poker & great emotions. I got bank everywhere though.

5. How many online poker rooms you play in?
I am loyal, but tend to be a bit of a free roll whore on weekends. I try to keep my money off the tables, unless it's live, with friends, or a great field.

6. What advise would you give a new online poker player?
Stay small, low limit ring games & inexpensive tournaments. Stick to your card chart, & observe the game; best way to learn.

7. What are your short, mind, and long term goals as a online poker player?
Where to start, short term is to get to the money in this months 50k guaranteed at Reefer Poker on May 31st. My entry only cost me $2 in a 5 seat SnG. Sure I be much happier to win 1st and take home a smooth 20k. But I am sure it'll be a respectable field. Mid term, I have been eyeing the MTT leader board at Merge for June, a seat in Niagra in from of friends & family! Long term, building a respectable bank at sites across the board. Nothing crazy but enough to jump into any major guaranteed event.

8. Do you plan on becoming a pro poker player?
Pro, meh, who knows. I got the balls for it & can play live, but I got some work to do before I would go that far. Hows, strong novice sound? I'm learning everyday! I pay the rent.

9. Do you make a full time income playing online poker?
Don't tell my mother but yes. Nothing spectacular, but it's working for me right now.

10. Any information you would like to add for our future online poker players?
Learn how to play good cards well before you learn the art of the bluff. And never bet and more than you can't afford to lose, laugh at, and learn.

Thanks again, hope to see you at the next KushMoney Poker Tour Event

Exclusive Interview with Owner of PokerBloggs.com

I am doing an interview with one of my poker affiliate coaches. Yes, even a coach has a coach. You have to learn from someone. I was really happy when he agreed to do the interview. If you are going to learn affiliate marketing, don't just stay with the affiliate networks. Their are better ways to build a passive income. Anyway, lets get into the interview with my poker affiliate coach George Haritos.

1. Please introduce yourself to my readers.
Hello, I'm George Haritos, the owner of Pokerbloggs.com, mypokertube.com, pokeraffiliates.org.uk. My sites have been featured on G4 TV and I have done consulting for for major companies and affiliates.

2. How long you been a poker affiliate?
I've been a poker affiliate since 2004

3. What is your biggest challenge as a poker affiliate?
My biggest challenge as a poker affiliate has been to overcome rooms closing down, dealing with people in forums, and scammers. Another challenge I faced was actually focusing on getting conversions as opposed to buying and selling domains. Lately the domain market has been bad and I have gone to strictly getting signups for Full Tilt.

4. What is the most important thing you have learn about poker affiliate marketing and how has it impacted your success today?
If I were to do things differently, I would have let anyone in forums know what I'm doing. Other affiliates rip off your ideas within a week if you post anything. However, I do not agree with people who post in forums who don't use signatures. I lose trust in them. Also, never share your techniques with others, I learned that from Shoemoney. He never clues anyone intgo what hes doing until the fad is over.

And when you describe me as an affiliate, I'm not your typical "affiliate". I;m more of a developer / domainer. But lately I've quit expanding my domain empire and going for conversions.

5. What is your favorite method of generating traffic and why?
Articles. Articles are the cheapest and best way to generate traffic.

6. What’s your most effective method of generating traffic?
I can't really share this, because it would have negative effect on my traffic. I'd say ditto to question 5.

7. What are your short, mind, and long term goals as a poker affiliate?
My short term goal is to streamline my domain portfolio. My long term goal is to ride out this depression the economy is in or about to be in.

8. If you could give one piece of advice to new poker affiliates that are starting out what would it be?
Write your own articles if you can. Save money because times are bad. Content is king and so is keeping a low overhead.

9. What top tip would you give to current poker affiliates?
Use MXhub.com for hosting. Joseph is the best admin in the business.

10. Any information you would like to add for our future poker affiliates?
If you are looking what other sites are doing and copy that, you will always be one step behind. See what they are doing and add a new twist. Always take it to the next level.

I would also advise to stay away from small rooms.

Don't forget about signing sub affiliates. Then once you get players and sub affiliates, nurture them.

Thank you George for taking the time to answer these questions.
