I sometimes play online poker at Full Tilt. I do not do it regularly since my account has no funds. I only use play money. Poler is an interesting game of odds. I really don't enjoy much when only play money is at stake because some people just go all in all the time. They are risking it all because it's just play money. Anyways, I only play poker online if I have time and to relax my mind off my busy schedule.

Have you considered playing in freerolls? The are free to play so you do often get those people who go all-in way too much, but at the end there is a prize. Once you get past a half hour of play pretty much everyone is serious about it. Poker Stars is the most challenging site that I'm aware of. Ultimate Bet usually has freeroll every hour at thirty five after.

I prefer to play on Pokerstars and CakePoker. Pokerstars is easiest to deposit on using Western Union. CakePoker has the best rewards. With thier gold card rewards, even people playing the smallest stakes. As for playing freerolls to build a bankroll, it's relatively difficult, even when you win a freeroll you still only have enough for a few buy-ins for even the smallest SNG's or cash games. I'd recommend you goto parttimepoker.com and get a stake, several people (including the site itself) help out newbs and will give you small buy-ins. All you do is take the money, play the game they tell you to, and send them back usually 50% of the winnings, if you don't win anyhting, your not required to pay them back. They also have a Coaching section where you can hire one, some of the people will allow you to pay with pokerstars or ful tilt money or paypal. As for tips I'd recommend you check out some of the poker forums. If you need to find some you can simply do a blingo search and find some, or check out my website for some a small list of some of the ones that offer better freerolls/buy-ins for their members. MANY forums offer freerolls to there members with nothing required, some ask you make some posts and contribute to the forum. If you join one for the purpose of this, try to not just spam a few posts out there, they are doing you a favour, you should at least abide and make the forum better. Even if you don't know a single thing aobut poker, ask some questions, you will get many answers and learn. You could also try reading a Poker E-book, there are several places where you can buy them online for a realatively small amount for the quality of information you are gaining. There are some E-books you can download for free. If you only like playing for fun and don't wanna risk your own money-or someone elses. I'd recommend you play on Pokerstars as people will buy Play chips on that site for a rough amount of 1mil play chips equals $5 or so, not much but it is free and enough people out there will buy them that you can usually sell them no problem. Several sites deal strictly in this, a simple search will find you one in a couple mins.

I play mostly at either Mansion Poker or Full Tilt Poker. If you are interested in a free poker bankroll have a look at my blog (you will find the link in my profile). Here you will go thorugh a poker school, and answer a quiz, if you answer the quiz correctly you are eligble for a free poker bankroll at 50 dollar. When you have played up a certain poker points with your bankroll you will get transfered another 100 dollars. This is no scam, you pay no money to join. Have a look in my blog for more information. myquesttoearn.blogspot.com

I play online poker on many sites, sometimes trying to play all the best freerolls on all sites. if you try to play at many sites at the same time I think full tilt poker and unibet are the worst because they make the biggest burden on your computer. I think betsson and bet24 are nice to play at but they don't have as much and as high paying freerolls as T6 poker for example. On Titan poker, VCpoker and DMHpoker it's hard to get to freerolls because the client gets stuck when the registration opens. I also look for the best bonuses which give some free start up money, for example pokerstrategy (I'll put the referral link in my profile if you want to sign up and get 50$ free start money to titan poker,full tilt or mansion poker) VC poker also gives 10$ to start with.

I just started playing some online poker with PokerStars.net it is a pretty good site so far to learn how to play online. I play a lot of cash games and haven't really played anything online. So far from what I have seen online play is a lot different. It is a lot harder to read the other players and I think it is more what is in your hand. I don't know though I am new to the online poker world.

I used to play online poker at the pay sites. Full Tilt, Pokerstars, Ultimate Bet, etc. But I never had any success there. I just don't do well risking my own money. I still play the freerolls occasionally but they don't payout that much and it's so tough to make the money on some of the sites so I don't bother with them most of the time. Poker time and the other sites in that network(sorry I don't remember them all), have great freerolls and they're easy to get into the money. Right now they're having $7k freerolls on the 17th and 27th of this month. They payout to the top 600 and the last one I was in had about 3000 people in it. So it was pretty easy to make the money. But other than freerolls, I don't spend much time on pay sites. If I play poker online it's at No Pay Poker because it doesn't cost anything to play but you can still win cash. I love being able to win money playing poker without having to risk any.

i really dont think people should play online, not because im against poker or anything, i just thing itll ruin how you play, its better if you stick to real life poker, i host weekly poker partys and we all just pitch in 20 dollars and practice poker, kinda like a mini tournament. its just as fun, and you can still read people and practice your poker face. the problem with online poker is you cant read people and practice your poker face, i think its ok playing online poker if you never plan on playing with real people in a real tournament, but if you play in real life i wouldnt reccomend it.
