Hey everyone, I wanted to know if anyone played poker online.
I currently play on Pokerstars, having played previously on Full Tilt.
I play on full tilt every now and again. It's been awhile though.
Same here - I have accounts on full tilt, bodog, and ultimate bet, but usually play on full tilt if i'm going to play. I haven't played online in several months, though.
Oh, how i miss the golden days of party poker, though... and paradise poker, for that matter.
I used to play on poker stars when i was 10 then Americans couldn't cash out so(luckily i didn't have any money in there) i started playing at goldenpalace and had 140 dollars from 5 dollars and cashed out. Now i just play chess and w/ my uncles.
ah yes, subscription based poker sites are being increasingly popular nowadays, due to the low risk and legality. Though I prefer to make more money =)
I have accounts on PokerRoom, Cake (incredibly soft games), Full Tilt, Stars and used to have accounts on Paradise and Party back when americans could play on them. This year I will ONLY be playing on Stars because I am trying to make SuperNova Elite (1 million vpps). I am already supernova and was last year also. Wish me luck... I am behind pace. I have around 220,000 so far as of 4-2-09.
I have played played on fulltilt poker!
supernova elite... jeez... high roller =p
Up to a few months ago I played heaps of online poker but I'm too busy playing chess these days. I can blame chess.com for this, I have to reduce the number of games I'm playing here so I can get back into it, starting to miss it. I've currently got accounts with Paradise and Everest playing short handed limit holdem.
Too many cheating schemes on Pokerstars from what I've heard. Teams using chat programs like AIM is one. Don't put money in that site.
ah, yes, well, that kind of collusion probably does take place at every site to some extent, though they are trying to figure out ways to try and reduce that. Though playing multitable tournaments reduces that risk by a lot.
I agree that playing tourneys is the best way to avoid collusion, but I can tell you that most sites are REALLY trying hard to bust the cheaters (colluders). One of my best friends plays sit n gos all day long every day for a living, and has had at least SIX rebates from Stars, when they busted cheaters. In the SNGs, if players complain about any two players as possible colluders, Stars actively investigates. If these two are repeatedly playing in the same SNGs and are passing money back and forth with transfers repeatedly, OR if they have really unusual play (such as a guy open mucks QQ preflop without a raise, and his buddy just coincidentally has KK). These cheaters have their assets frozen and redistributed to players that they have played against. I for one, appreciate the lengths that Stars and some other sites have gone to, to eliminate cheaters.
I used to play tons on Full Tilt...not so much now, taking a break from online poker :)
I've heard that Cake is soft, but I've been wondering what type of fish tend to float around there. Do you find more 70/3/.2's or more 10/0/8's? I'd kind of assumed that the ubernit variety would be more prolific given where they advertise. Obviously I play the micros NL 6max. Haha, I should be so lucky as to find a fish of that calibur above 100NL.
And hello. I play on Stars.
I currently play at Carbon using the same screen name I have on here.
Is this thread/group still active? I know online poker was recently baned in the US pending licensing and regulation (and taxation), but do people still play?
sure, merge and cake emerged as the winners from that i think, they're still accepting US players
