As you may have read in some of my previous posts, I am just starting to really get into playing online poker. I am wondering what software you all play on out there.
I do not have as many options after the events of Black Friday last year, but I have registered for the Cake Poker Network, and yesterday I got in on this software called Wild Hogs. Wild Hogs is free, but I am thinking I can hone my game before really making a dip with the real money sites.
Where do you play?
Pokerstars and betvictor poker. Never won a cent playing poker. About cake poker software, i think it isn't users friendly. Betvictor's software is very clean, easy to use and understand. There are always more then 3000 players connected and with many free and cheap tournaments to play. Its possible to win 10€ with a 0.5€ fee in a 40 players tourney, Won it two times but what can i do with 10€? To buy a lollipop to my baby? well, i play poker for fun because i know that is very hard to win a decent amount of money in this game.

I wouldn't even know where to go now. I used to play penny poker at Full Tilt, years ago, and I loved Pure Play poker when I first started out. It was fun to chat with people from all around the world while I honed my skills, lol. I think my friend's husband plays at Party Poker? Bovada is great, because there are lots of beginners and amateurs there, so it might be easier to win a game. I believe CL-Ed suggests Bovada for U.S. poker players, too. Of course, as I always say: with poker you DO also have to have the cards! lol! There is skill involved to be sure, but you need a little bit of luck, too. Carbon Poker is one more that I think still accepts U.S. players. I have not heard of the sites you mentioned.
I enjoyed Pure Play for the exact reasons you named: I was able to enter free tournaments to win small amounts of money or more poker chips while practicing. The only problem is that people will play carelessly (and piss off everyone else at the table, lol), because they figure if they go "all in" on the first hand of a sit and go they can just jump into another one in a few more minutes. I like that they have the longer tournaments, the sit n gos and then the different poker rooms. I had a lot of fun there a few years back, then ventured out to the free games at the bowling alley/bar. That was fun, too. Some of the people I played with played at a different bar almost every single night of the week. Also, if you get in the top ten enough times you would get a free entry into a tournament at Canterbury Downs, which is our horse race track/black jack and poker rooms place that is very popular around here. I won first and second place a few times, and it is fun to win a little cash, gift certificates to the bar/restaurant, or even a hat! lol I would often just drink soda, so it was a cheap night out, too!
Other than that, I have played a few 40/60 games at the casino. I like that it passes a good amount of time that I am not putting that money in the slot machines, lol (same when I take a break and play some Bingo). In fact, 'Slim, you have me missing Hold'em. I am going to the land casino on Monday and Tuesday nights, and I think I am going to put my name in and try my hand at a game. I will let you know how I do. 🙂
Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of the things, and no good thing ever dies.
'Slim, I just noticed something, and maybe you already know this or are not interested, but I thought I would pass it along, anyway. I was snooping around on Bovada's stie,and it says they have one-deck Black Jack. I think someone was asking about that while back and might have been you? I also know you have some places you enjoy playing Black Jack now, too, but again: FYI. 🙂
Yes, that was me asking about it. I will take a look at it, but I am actually not a huge fan of Bovada (Bodog), but I am willing to try their poker software. Their casino games haven't impressed me in the past, but poker is hopefully a different animal.
Thanks for the heads up on the blackjack!
I agree about their slots, 'Slim! They are so lame. The reels spin really slow and the graphics are terrible. The poker rooms are a different story (and a different download). However it is the in the casino download where I saw the one deck black jack. I may have to try it sometime. I played poker there last night for a very short time. I posted in another thread that I turned my 2 dollars into 4.70 something, lol, in the penny rooms. Working my way up slowly! haha!
