    Online poker players

    Hey everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone out there is an online poker player? I'm thinking of starting to play online and I was wondering what site I should play on and get started with. Any info would be great, thanks!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I play quite a bit. Depending on what you're looking for, there are different sites available. Probably the most popular one right now is PokerStars, since PartyPoker no longer serves American customers.

    There are other sites that are also pretty popular that have pretty good bonus offers for people who sign up.

    http://www.pocketfives.com/84F6EA29-9921-48B9-BAC2-FF1A0795FA5B.aspx

    That site has some pretty good reviews on the major sites.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    Thanks canadian vikes! My co worker said he won 22,000 dollars this past summer on the net. I know I won't win that much if anything, but it would be fun to try out some tournaments for about 20 bucks or so! The only thing I worry about is putting my checking account number on the internet.

    Why is it that partypoker is the only one that is affected by the whole Bush thing?

    You can still pay at Party Poker.
    I use part poker, it's the bomb.
    Its a program you download.
    I play in the free area.

    I also have a program called a chipper that gives me free chippies.
    I let it run all day while I was at work and ended up with 20,000,000 chips!

    PartyPoker and Pardise Poker are the ones that I know of that have decided to pull out of the US market. I'm not sure whetheror not you can still play for free chips or not, but you won't be allowed to make a deposit onto their site.


    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    You might be able to play for free since I guess that's not considered "gambling" but PartyPoker announced that they would freeze all American accounts after Bush signed the bill:
