Rates are generally quite fair. Which UK sites play USD? Betfair has sterling tables.

When collecting winnings do you get stung with conversion rates?

You could try fhmpoker, I quite like the interface there, but it is in USD.

Beginners can win big pots quite easily online. It's holding onto it that's the problem. Small stake tables have players that call everything and most time, one of them will hit a long shot to beat a 'good' hand.

However, play stable and your bankroll will increase slowly, whereas the poor players will fluctuate wildly until they've lost it all.

That's why I currently prefer to play the Tourneys, players who call every hand don't last long.

True, but remember position is sometimes more important than the cards you hold. You play no limit or limit?

Had a go last night on betfair, just for fun, but it's quite suprising how quickly you pick things up. One thing I did notice was how many flushes kept coming up, far more than I expected so I am more cautious now with a couple of pocket rockets.

Lost 120 to make me down 120 in first week.
Won 320 to make me up 200 in second week.
Lost 350 to make me down 150 third week.
Today, so far up about 150 to make me break even...

I exhausted myself the other day playing a 15 dollar tourney on Pacific. 553 runners, finished seventh, netting only $300. 5 hours play. Very tiring.

Had a good day on Laddies yesterday evening, turned $100 into $1400. A good Sunday evening. They;re not all like that.

How big were the blinds if you only started with $100, or were you only playing tourneys?

the blinds were $1/2 then I moved on to 2.50/5.

I had good cards and then got them scared so I could buy some quite big hands and bully them.

5 years, but only online for about 8 months.

But there are lots of evenings that don;t work out so well

Do you think people who have played in B&M casinos hold an advantage over people who have only ever played online?

Yes.

Although there's alot of snobbery from the older offline players about online poker. They see it as impure. The old pros are terrified by the explosion of interest, and by the number of people who play aggressive or just get lucky when chasing. Actually it's as real as any other kind, and in some ways purer, because you have to rely on seeing the patterns without any of the chatter or body language that helps you or hinders you offline.

But the real life experience does help.

You just get to know abit more accurately what's really a good hand, how to save money on losses, when to change pace, and when a raise will get you the hand.

The best poker book I have read is Super System by Doyle Brunson. More statistical players (e.g. who stick rigidly to pot odds) prefer the books by David Sklansky. Both recommended.
