Love poker to be honest, a local champ, never lost a game.
I do not condone gambling outside of casino's.
Think you misunderstood, what i was getting at is that by learning to play online, you find there is no need to control emotions and show restraint. Do that too long and once you do play a face to face game, then its really tricky to remember to hold your cool so to speak (if you've spent the last year shouting 'YESSS' to yourself every time your dealt 2 Aces, in a real game its quite easy to forget to control yourself and remember to not show you've just got a crackin hand. Its not so much little tells, but massive whoppers

Just started on the Full Tilt Poker site and won a tournament. Cool site anyone else have a user on it?
What site do you play at Sim?
I'm currently using Bowman90 on stars, lent a dollar off a mate and have managed to run it up to $30 playing the lowest limit stakes(it's horribly impossible to avoid being drawn out on down there) and lately SNGs and 2.20 sats which are pretty easy. I used to use SSDas at which i turned nothing into into a hundred an 67 dollars but then came crashing down to 67(and which point i decided to bar myself to stop myslef tilting of my br).
I do ok in SNGs (sharkscope's reading 30%ROI after 90 games) but i seem to suck at shorthanded cash games, which is annoying as i'm an OK shorthand tournament player.
Edit: FFS, last two hands, first NL cash, second early on in a 2.20 sat-
All in(WTF ARE YOU DOING ALL IN WITH 7s??????)
Flop: K23 - Score, he's virtualy dead. Drawing to two perfect outs, 989 to one.
Turn: 7 - W/E, i'm still winning, i mean, what's the chances of him hitting the case 7? 43 to one? No way
River: Take a wild ****in guess.

OK then some of cdm's poker tips.
Poker varies from which type of game you're playing people play for fun and money among various other things. Example if you're playing for money and you see you have about a 36% Chance of making a straight you should only put you're money in if you're getting payed out at(100/36) 2.8/1. But in play money games like what most poker sites have people will be more likely to have a little gamble. People will be a lot more serious when there's money involved, I mean I've only ever played two pound games at the most but still mister tight money is easy to bluff or basically bully out of a pot but mister money bags wouldn't be as bothered about losing a pound so it's good to play the player who isn't taking the game to serious when you feel you have the best hand.
But remember when you take tips all players are different. There are fish(A player guaranteed to lose), rocks (Tight players), donkeys(Poker incompetence) and sharks (Good players after the fish's money) Knowing how to tell a shark from a fish is a key factor in poker. Remember if you dont know who the fish at you're table is when you're playing poker, it's you.
Amateur's although they are amateurs are sometimes a bit figity first of all never bluff them.
He had a full house ffs! Unless the **** had K8 (or KK, but that's even less likely) he was well in front, and deserved to win.
Yeah, pre-flop with 7's isn't that bad a play, you'd have to think you'd be getting called by similar pockets or more likely by AK or AQ.
