Just be carefull everyone. they want you to start depositing money and playing for real. you can check out some sites like Absolutepoker.com partypoker.com royalvegas.com that will make choice poker look like Atari 2600. plus they have free rolls daily and a lot more to win and the graphics and play abiltiy dwarf choice Poker. but with all them there is a reason they are online. Over all you wont win. If you can play sensibbly for entertainment now and then its ok but please dont get addictted and let real projects, family, etc, get in the way of a damn poker tourny on a daily basis.

Poker is not a fad...its been around since the 1920's such as the Doc Holiday , Wyatt Earp, etc. days...and its here to stay and grow like no other...anyways, and my friends from PartyPoker.com are responsible for starting the craze by starting the cruise tournaments and then on Travel Channel..its the most watched show for the channel.

Not true. My ex-boyfriend plays partypoker.com for a living. lol Last time I talked to him he was making about $1000 a week. I'm sure it's much for than that now. But hey, he's not normal. He has a statistical calculator in his head.
