    havent played in a while but i dont think you can get rakeback on pokerstars.
    you can get rakeback at fulltilt last time i checked.
    also look to see if any sites are offering a first deposit match or something.
    good luck

    rakeback is where you get what you paid for rake...back.
    it makes a big difference if you put in a good amount of playtime. but if you just want to play recreationally then i guess you dont need to bother.
    i like pokerstars for what its worth. good tournament play.

    Haven't played for a while.

    I'm a winner live but never could stay up online. Turned 100 bucks into a thousand in less than a week and never did cash it.

    If you're a good player stay away, ha ha. The suck outs will make you hate poker forever.

    i'm not good.. i'm average. i rape the highest limit playmoney games, but that doesn't mean too much, since obv nobody cares about their money and plays all wacky. ive tried doing real money with my visa CC and mastercard checking card, but my bank declined the transaction both times, lol. so now i'm playing the freeroll tourneys til i can finally get some real $. my first one yesterday, placed 1529 out of 10,000. had to fold to shower, but my stack wasnt huge

    we'll see what happenz i guess. either way it's fun

    dayum :hs: that would be so much fun

    well honestly i dunno if playing professionally would be fun. it'd take the pleasure out of winning if you had to play 8 hours a day to get by. now if you were the type of hard pipe hittin nig that could throw down like 10 hours a week and be ballin like stalin, then thatd be hecka kosher. i'd like to get to the point where i can consistantly win on like 1/2 dollar tables where the pot is usually 20-30 dollars on a decent hand, and the level of play is above average (most people on low limit games are stooges). having fun, makin a few bucks, thatd be cool with me

    :rofl: actually, i guess you can stake money.. it's kinda specific though. in the lobby you go to request -> transfer funds...

    it'll prompt you for a user ID (Phlab) and an amount. in the amount box, put $500,000. it's just an algorythm, the real box comes up later i think ;)

    I was actually a consistent winner on party poker, the suck outs happened much less often.

    If I was allowed to play there I would still.

    Wait, can I?
