Online Poker

Online Poker has been partly responsible for a dramatic increase in the number of poker players worldwide. C C A stated online poker revenues grew from $82.7 million in 2001 to $2.4 billion in 2005, while a survey carried out by DrKW and Global Betting and Gaming Consultants asserted online poker revenues in 2004 were at $1.4 billion.

I prefer online poker because it allows you to play for very low stakes (1c/2c). You can built your bankroll from 1 $ to 1 000 000 $. Pokersites offer a big poker bonus when you start playing at their site. But almost none of them give free money. You have to play for money to earn your bonus. So don't believe messages like: FREE 500$ WHEN YOU PLAY AT OUR SITE!
Welcome bonus at the biggest sites:
party poker bonus = up to 500$.
full tilt poker bonus = They'll automatically match your initial deposit with a 100% bonus up to $600!
pokerstars bonus = They'll automatically match your initial deposit with a 100% bonus up to $600!
unibet bonus = up to 500$.

I am going to try out party poker just for fun, not for the party poker bonus. You can find me at the 1c/2c tables at party poker .

  1. The bonuses actually help you profit if you play 50/50.

  2. I play PKR for the 10 cent giveaways. Do you have that concept in other games?

  3. that is insane, people think you can actually make some money, lol.

  4. Agreed on the bonuses just wish i had more time like i used too.

  5. sure I am interested I wanna know how to play it .. just in simple guide +followed

  6. I know tons of people who are hooked on online poker. I rarely play much these days, I spend most of my time blogging.

  7. i've been thinking about online gambling as a source of supplemental income (or loss).

    looking forward to your future posts. :)_\

  8. I do actually enjoy online poker. I personally tend to use Full Tilt, although I have been known to also play on PokerStars occasionally.

  9. I always tend to lose at poker! Don't think it was a game designed for me!

  10. I love poker. Mostly play it live only tho.

  11. You don't learn to play a guitar overnight. You don't become a world class tennis player in a week. You can't become a grand master chess player without at least 10,000 hours of playing the game with people who push your limits.

    the .01/.02 games are a mind boggling grind and people play wildly because they don't care. I won $9 placing third in a freeroll and got it up to $60 before switching out my hard drive. I need to get my hand histories back, and remember my crazy password.

    I have a friend who plays 2/5 5/10 and 10/20 NLO8. He's been doing it for 4 or 5 years now, but he probably makes 150-200k a year.

    If you want to get good, you have to study (try 2+2, google it) read books, analyze your old hands, learn to read your opponents, and above all grind grind grind. My friend probably puts in 10k+ hands a week? month? I forget, but it's 8-12 hour days of non stop playing.

    It takes time and effort, like anything else. Deposit $100 and play the $2 tables. That's 50 buy ins. Don't move up without at least 20 buyins, and drop back down to a low limit if you go on a downswing.

    After a while it becomes a major mental game of keeping your cool and staying level headed. If you go on tilt easily this is not a good game to play.

    Keep at it dude. Post some hands you've played
