Cheers, Neteller

Bad strip today! Had a pretty good run going, but they can't all be winners.

A record 33 people played in the 20th +EV tourney yesterday! The player known as canIsuxout? busted me for the bounty, while akerrigan won the event and the comic book that goes along with it.

Just out of curiousity, anyone here know of solid places to play some hold 'em for a relative beginner (has played some online, some video games, but wants 'real' experience) in Louisiana? I'm in Texas, considering making the 3-4 hour drive coming up in a month or so.

Google gives a bunch of good info. Never been to Louisiana myself, but looks like there's a lot of places to play poker. I'd suggest playing online as much as possible first, and this is a decent book you might want to check out.

I don't do too bad online, but I know I'm an amateur. And right now...the whole money situation being what it is...

I've got a book, and it's helped (as has video tutorials in WSOP: TOC and Stacked).

The problem with playing for play money, even in tournaments, though, is many of the players seem to want to go all-in on the first hand, on the basis that it's 'not real money'.

Well yeah, you gotta play for real money, and you can do that online. It's not illegal or anything. Get some money on a site (PokerStars is the best overall) and play for real!

Yeah, but how do you get around the 'no real money in the US' bit. :)

There is no bit like that. I don't know where you got your information from, but I'm happy to tell you that it is very incorrect. Americans can and do play for real money online and it is not illegal in any way.

Please read this article from P5s about tourneys played over the weekend. Most of the players mentioned who had big scores live in America.
