playing micro limits is so fucking frustrating though, since some dumbasses will play anything at micro.

It is. But it teaches you patience and that is vital. If you make good hands you can often get paid and it's usually a slow and steady bankroll increase. One little piece of advice, don't start out multi-tabling. Make sure you can beat the games easily first.

They're all good. Full Tilt has good software if you're just going to play for free. But if you play for cash later you should probably play elsewhere.

trying out the fulltilt soft now

so I started out playing with 2 tables and 1000 fake cash, at 5000 now after some hours of playing.

you saying competition gets alot harder when u play for real?

im basicly just playing as tight as a 12 year old, folding unless I get a decent to great hand, and even then I just fold when shit gets too real

EDIT - im guessing you see alot less retards when playing for real who go all in on the fucking handout

Where would you recommend playing for cash at if not full tilt? Also what games do you recommend for beginners?

youre really unlucky / did it wrong / are bad at poker or all three

I think its a mix between these two. I have terrible luck in cash games and I play no limit.

I play micro stakes too I think my highest bankroll was like $50 and I'm starting to think micro will get me no where. ;X

aargh, playing vs casuals in free poker games is so frustrating

like 20% of the players go all in before the flop, ruining so many games

how can u say that one is good based on its software, rake is what matters and on some sites its higher on some its lower. skill wise pokerstars probably has the biggest competition, but on low stakes it doesnt reallu matter imo

I play on poker stars, the fastest money I've found so far is to play sit and go's, multiple at a time if you can.  Just follow the fundamentals and be patient and more times than not you'll profit.

Just wondering.. What kind of bankroll did you guys start with and how long did it take you to work it up?

I started with $165 USD and played nickel dime no limit cash. I think that is a very small amount to start with though. It can work but $300 would be a lot better. And btw, making millions at online poker isn't nearly as uncommon as you might think. MANY times I had people hand me $1k by CALLING with nothing on the river allin. You'd be surprised how many bad players there are. Some of them literally don't know the rules of the game.

so luck is a big factor ?

In a sense, yes. Luck can make or break you on any given day. I can still win about 90% of the time playing heads up cash but it's very common to get stuck over $2k in the first half hour when I'm a favorite in all the pots. As long as you play well within your bankroll at all times, luck can be beaten. But it does take a lot of experience and the learning curve is steep.
