    Anyone play Texas Holdem online for $$. Have you ever won? A friend of mine played on Party poker and came in first. He won right at $1900. Trying my luck at it tonight.

    Never online but we get together here once in a while for a night of poker, mostly for fun, not real serious.

    I play on fulltilt alot for play chips. I dont know about real money yet, i dont have any that i can lose. Its a hard game to play when you really need the money...... Otherwise, bluff when you know you can, and play smart. Im up over 200,000 play chips in a few weeks. But alot of it has been pure luck, like picking up a card on the river after going all in. Good luck

    I play for $$ on party poker. $50 is the least that you can put in your account. I only play the $1 or $6 games. My friend played for $6 when he won $1900. I've came in 39th place out of 2000+ the first time I played w/ $$. Sucked ever since.

    I play alot on Poker Room and World Sports Exchange. WSEX is a Rake free site. Which is nice.

    Like when you play side tables.....say $1-$2 no limit. When you win a pot the house will take a cut. Usually like 5% I think. WSEX takes the cut, but you get it all back at the end of the week. So, it is rake free really.
