Have to say that some of the flops and rivers etc can be very suspect indeed.

On laddies you get it a bit but Ultimate bet was ridiculous.

Laddies have a certificate from PriceWaterhouseCoopers saying that everything is above board though

hills is good - just go on the website and you can download the stuff there. if you have an online hills account (also v easy to use) you can just take money out when you wish, small amounts obviously.

btfair uses the same server i believe so either or.

Pacific is a bitch! as its american anything over a small amount of money, unlike hills, you have to wait for a wire transfer! Way too much hassle.

Personally i'd say hills, but then that's cos i'm used to it.

Am on William Hills at the moment - very enjoyable. Only playing on $0.25 / $0.50 with $2.50 buy in - cheap, so a good way of learning I guess.

Well, I am pleased to say I am holding my own with relative ease on the small priced tables.
Deposited 10 on Saturday, kept it going until Sunday - maybe up a few pounds.
My mistake was listening to the Palace match while I was playing and carrying on playing after the result - needless to say my play game broke down and I quit with about $8.00
New day today, lost the remaining eight, deposited another $18.00 and got it upto $40.00

Watched late night poker for a year or so, played poker for the first time ever about a week ago ( Yahoo Games ), played for money first time ever on Saturday.

I'm playing at the tables where you pay to join and the blinds are fixed.

Currently upto $58.55

Have just switched from Laddies to Pacific Poker, as many of the players are monkeys in the US, whereas Laddies gets alot of Scandinavians.

Had some success on Laddies, then a poor run. So far Pacific looks easier. Up 700 dollars in two days.

Mind you, I did once turn 50 into 2000 on Laddies in an hour or so. Then lost 1500 on one hand.

I'm finding it well addictive. Playing everyday. Not for big money as I'm still learning.

Christ, what are you playing exactly?

Right, don't play the "Sit and Play" tables anymore, sticking to the Tournaments - and it's starting to pay off.
Few days back and I was 120.00 down overall ( from start to finish ), after a 50.00 win today ( and generally winning about 60% of the time now ), I have clawed my way back to being only 32.00 down for my whole poker experience.

Freetexasholdem.com (or something like that, google it) is a good place to practice without actually playing for real money.

Do you mean 500 into 2000??? To turn 50 into 2000 you'd have to double-up about 6 times and move up stakes, were you playing on a table full of maniacs?

Can someone tell me why the UK sites use USD and not sterling?

When collecting winnings do you get stung with conversion rates?

We could have a BBS online tourney if we all register for a single table tournament at the same time.

I used to play a lot on fhmpoker a lot, but I am too much in debt now to justify saving up for a big enough bank roll to play properly. My flat mate just plays online for a living. Some people make a good income from it.

On William Hill you can play USD or Sterling - I would imagine it's personal preference depending where you are playing from.

They use the same conversion rate for changing up what you buy with no charges.
