So Pit, how many of you are into the online poker thing?

Do you play? Do you use real money or play money? Are you successful with it (making a profit)? Discuss!

EDIT: If you don't play, why?

There's a UG Poker thread somewhere. We all play on triplejack, but it's been super slow recently as far as UG playing together.

I used to play a bit at fulltilt and was doing good until one night I lost $450 and that took me to about even overall. It's a slippery slide that one.

Playing poker online pretty much eliminates any real strategy involved in poker.


I totally agree with you; however, there are strategies for winning online as well. I play in casinos as well on the weekends for extra college money so that's where I use REAL strategy :p

I semi agree with you. I play poker a lot in person and online, you are playing the game more than the person. But online poker still shares the mathematical component that live poker has. Manipulating pot-odds and such.
What?! There's a clean channel on my amp?!

I prefer to pokeher in real life, online doesn't stimulate the same way

Yah, I play online for real money. I think play money is pointless, since people don't play with same rationale when playing with expendable funds.

I only play micro-stakes, but it's fun, and I am often successful in making a small profit.

I used to play Zynga Texas Hold'em all the time. I hate people that go all-in pre-flop just to make everyone think they have a better hand. Then if you have an average hand, you can't call because you're not stupid. The worst is some assholes will do it every hand and just run the table from there. Tournaments and stuff on FB's Zynga poker are kinda fun.


Edit: If we still have UG's Triplejack room, I'm down.

I've played a few times, never with real money though. I'm awful at poker, internet or otherwise.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

Never invested money into online, but mostly play the freerolls if i have the time. Only play micro limit once i do win some virtual money. Made some profit in my years playing, but not that great. Only played live with friends.

I play every now and again online with real money, keeps me sharp for when I play in real life. It makes for good practice on working out the odds etc.
there is no fear in this heart.

I usually play with real money but i only play within my limit. I sometimes make a couple of hundred dollars but then I start to lose that amount, I always seem to be even. Dont play with real money if you dont feel ready
