    Any Poker Players??

    Alright 2 things
    1) I'm sick of playing at the site I have been playing at and want to know what sites you play or would recommend.

    2) Anybody play in a good game during the week anywhere around Ames? Looking to start playing again alot more and didn't know if anybody had a home game with an empty seat. Sorry for the selfish post btw

    sportsbook.com

    you can play on the game after words big dog.

    Knowing you, you are looking for a nickle dime game most people cant handle that here.




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    I like pokerstars. Go to pokerstars.com. That's the one for real money. pokerstars.net is the play money site.

    Re: Any Poker Players??

    None of my credit/debit cards get accepted on any site. I love to bet on college football but was denied this year.

    I do play poker with some guys here in Des Moines about every 5-6 weeks, pretty good time. Low stakes some beer and lots of laughs.

    Re: Any Poker Players??

    I play on FullTilt and like it. I like it better than Poker Stars, just the gameplay is more enjoyable. Miss Party Poker.

    Dont play on Absolute Poker or Ultimate Bet as they have cheated their customers in the past.

    I play on Bodog only because I can also bet on sports and horse racing there.

    Back in the 80's I played with a group about twice a month and we would rotate houses. There were about six regulars and quite a few that would show up sporadically. We even played once in a while over at the old Black Knight Lounge in Boone. It was serious poker and I can't remember the exact stakes but I remember it being enough that it hurt to lose. I quit playing when life got busier but I missed it because it was a lot of fun.
    Anyway, back to your post, I ran into one of the old guys the other day and he was saying he is in a group in Ames that plays so I'll see if I can find out what they are playing and if they have a seat.

    Re: Any Poker Players??

    I've never played on-line, do they mainly play hold 'em or do they play others as well?

    There is quite a bit of red tape you have to go through before doing something like that. A guy I used to work with got busted by the gaming commission or something because they played for more than 50 bucks, which apparently is against the law. Got into deep doo doo for what I think was an honest mistake.

    Re: Any Poker Players??

    Pokerstars has basically everything, obviously Hold em is the most popular but Omaha isn't too far behind, but they also play 7 Stud, badugi, 5 Card draw, Razz and I am pretty sure everthing you can think of....not sure about other sites...

    I thought the limit was 500? I am sure there would be a lot of hoops to jump through, but I am sure someone can hula hoop well
