So you really wanted to play “Real Poker” against “Real People” for “Real Money” but the US Congress said you can not deposit money in an online site and your family thinks it is all “Rigged” anyway. So you never did try online poker and the charity $100 re-buy at your church is too much money to invest into learning a new game. Now all you do is sit in front of the television watching ESPN reruns of the WSOP Final Tables where Chris Moneymaker and Greg Raymer turned $4o satellite seats into millions of spend able dollars and you just know you have what it takes. So where can you go to play “Real Poker” against “Real People” for “Real Money” ?
Well there is a site that is quite generous to its new players, has been around for years with a great community of players and really wants to sponsor a WSOP or WPT Final Table player someday. Poker.Com is a great site geared toward the low buy in player. Poker.Com is very generous in its daily, weekly, monthly free roll offerings for its regular players and really treats its New Players and New Depositors great. Long term and more experienced players will enjoy the higher buy in tournaments, Poker Leagues and special events like the Blogger Poker Tour.
If Texas Hold’em does not interest you they have almost every mainstream version of poker available as well as Backgammon and Black Jack. They have a great community forum that is moderated by player volunteers. The managers, player reps and Tina “The Poker Queen” (Hubba, Hubba) are almost always around to hear your questions and bad beat stories. Customer Support is quite good the Live Chat feature available through the Player Admin Tab is the quickest and easiest way to get assistance. Email support is a problem still due mostly to the high volume of nervous US players wondering about their accounts. There is no reason at all why you should not at least try Poker.com.
