Haven't really played for 6 months, only a pub game here and there, but that's not poker anyway.

well i played for the first time ever last night , pot-limit crazy pineapple. it was live at the casino. basically u get 3 cards ,round of betting.. flop.. round of betting.. throw 1 card..then the turn and plays just like hold'em.  yeah different game, also the fact that probably very few people had played it before made it interesting.  came across some real interesting situations on which card to throw,, example  i had KK7 with two clubs, and flop was like 942 two clubs,,  multi-way pot(3,4 runners)  what card do u chuck? i ended up breaking the kings and going for the draw. hand strenghs are more like omaha rather than hold'em..

andrew im always happy to talk cards,  hold'em is getting alittle stale these days for me, play it generally because thats where the traffic is. also people are better at it then what they were 4-5 years ago and its just harder to have an edge.. the fish go broke and leave and the profitable players have to eat each other..  im playing more and more the mix-8 sng's on stars(alot more fun) a mixture of 8 games, (2-7 lowball triple draw, H.O.R.S.E., no-limit hold'em, pot-limit omaha) really fun game, so good for my poker skills to learn other games.

I've played a lot of sit and go tournaments on Poker Stars, started with $20, and over a couple of months got the account up to $100, obviously that's not amazing but a profits a profit. Just something to pass the time anyway.

Oh yeah and I play Texas No Limit Holdem.

  no need to be nervous, just remember u won your way into it.  so really its a freeroll for you.  you can only win you cant lose.
  and if that doesnt make you feel more comfortable, then have a few drinks before u play haha

I am giving this a bump instead of starting a new thread.

I downloaded a World Poker Tour Game on the 360 and have been playing over the last few nights. You can join ring games and test your skills out against other players online. No real money is involved, just the chips you are given to start off and daily bonuses. If anyone has XBOX Live Gold it is a free download and I highly recommend it for a bit of fun.

The government in all their wisdom has banned online poker, so you only have a few weeks left to get your fix.
   
It's apparently important to protect adults from playing a skilled based card game in their own home.
  No problem though letting adults flush money done the drain playing Lotto, Keno, Pokies or Scratchy tickets.. Flowering joke.

We live in a "free" Country in 2017, where the internet is a very important part of our lives.
    Since when should the government stick their noses into where we spend our money anyhow?  Can buy alcohol and cigarettes which cause health issues and is a strain on the health system.

Can sit all day at a pokie machine which is programmed to pay out 87%, guess what, every time you spin you are losing 13% of the cost of the spin.
   So it's not like they are "protecting" the problem gambler.  Yeah go to the pub, drink(because you're at a pub) and play the slot machines, yeah that's fine.
Sitting at home throwing a few bucks at a virtual felt, while cooking dinner or whatever. NO you are a criminal, stop it!

They could tax online poker, just tax any sites that want to operate in Oz.   Or create a site in Oz and tax it like any company.
   I think the Casinos have a vested interest in blocking overseas online gambling, wouldn't be surprised if a brown paper bag has been handed over at some point.
 
This is a statement from a week ago..
   "The new law hasn’t been put in place yet and no timetable has been set on when sites such as PokerStars will exit the market."

If you mean, will we still be able to play with "play" chips on game sites or Facebook etc. ?  My understanding is yes.
 
It's been a grey area legally for some time and the ban is for overseas internet gambling.  Online poker has been included in the bill.
