Switch Poker have just launched their JustBadLuck Challenge – a no chance to love you long time 1000 hand HU poker Challenge against one of their players.
my style is crazy. I’m very aggressive. Sometimes too aggressive. I try to trust my reads, which are sometimes pretty good, sometimes veeeery bad
Switch Poker take the Heads Up player challenge and give it their own special iPhone poker style nip and tuck. But do the risk/reward ratio – after a quick study and grope downstairs of the goods on display – appear to be not quite right? Unless you are after what it is perhaps meant to provide players of a certain persuasion.
Is the JustBadLuck iPhone Challenge a weak bet Challenge promotion that will fail spectacularly or a good little and very targeted promotion that gives very specific Switch Poker Heads Up players a guaranteed small or big bang for their bucks?
JustBadLuck Challenge Prize and T&C’s
JustBadLuck and Switch Poker are so confident that if you beat him over 1000 hands of Heads Up play – on at least 2 HU tables of €1/€2 or €2/4 stakes without any long breaks in play apart from a 10 minute toilet pit stop – then if you manage to beat Patrick they will give you a whole €100. The €100 prize money paid for by JustBadLuck €50 (minus rakeback?) and Switch Poker €50 (minus the rake).
€100 win after 1000 hands HU against what Switch Poker can see is a good player does not seem to be worth or is +EV by itself. The other player poker Challenges on other sites have had large possible ROI.
But this is where the JustBadLuck Challenge can look tempting to the eye if you fancy it as JustBadLuck twists, turns and rivers around that greased up poker pole. It is only 1000 hands Heads Up so will go by relatively quickly on your iPhone, iPad, iPod or even – how old school online poker – on your laptop or PC’s web browser.
What the promotion is really doing is players who want a “Mano a Mano” session are guaranteed it as you can book your private dance with @Just_Bad_Luck through the Switch Poker Facebook page, Twitter or in the table chat.
