Some of my gripes on the few sites I've played - YMMV: PokerStars Poor currency conversion rate. Also owns Full Tilt but that has a better conversion rate - go figure. Dreadful rakeback 888 Poor interface, crashy software, cashier problems, very slow support. Full Tilt Laggy at times PKR Charge for cashouts below a certain limit

This second answer is about raising, or not: QQ from the big blind. If you have QQ in the big blind and that action comes back around to you with an option, you simply can assume you have the best hand at this time. The raise you make, if you decide to raise should ideally be the largest amount you can make it that the players will call. You do not want to ...

The rules will vary from site to site and also from casino to casino. The rules will also vary within the same poker room (Online or B&M) depending on the type and size of a game. There are two basic scenarios for getting in a game, a player is required to post a blind or the players is not required to post a blind. If the player is required to post a ...

From my experience at Party, you either wait until the BB comes round to you before being dealt in, or you have to put a BB dead in the pot on your first hand. Different sites may vary. The reason is not just positional advantage; if it were not the case then you could be dealt hands for free then quit before playing a blind - with enough patience you could ...

I think you played fine. Against a "sounder" player, I would have folded the 3 BB bet (he might have had KQ), but this one raised with a weaker hand than your KJ off. This raise did have the effect of inducing others to fold, perhaps one with e.g a KQ. When the flop hit you in two places, you were in "control" with your two pair. Your opponent would have ...

You sound a bit paranoid. KJ with KQJ gives you a v.good 2 pair, normally you would be ecstatic, so why think any differently? What's to be scared of - KK unlikely, so either QQ or AX. If opp had either, he wouldn't have bet 50% pot, it would of been check or Pot, so by this stage you know you are ahead. You hit lucky with the 7, if you each had had more ...

A real Normal player with there functionality won't go all in without the flop. Which game do you have played ? I really recommend Zynga Poker in facebook for begginers :)

I agree with the other answers here that your post-flop choices were poor. Your pre-flop raise wasn't enough to get AX to fold, and when your flop continuation bet was called on this board even though you'd shown pre-flop aggression and are effectively representing an ace, you know you're in bad shape. The only hands that would call you here are AX and 77. ...

I hit a wall in my cash games and there was a book recommended to me that pretty much turned around my game. I'll post the title later I can find it, but contained therein are two costly flaws you absolutely must eliminate from your game to be successful. From memory, these are: Passively playing hands in which you are potentially dominated Playing ...

You did not play the pot correctly, you managed to lose the maximum amount possible. Your pre-flop raise was OK. With queens I would much rather have two aces hit the board then one, but that only means my hand is a little less likely to be beat at this point because there is one less ace in someone's hand. It does not mean anything other then that, you ...

This is one of the cases where you need to raise strongly the limpers before you. The error on your side was that you raised the typical amount of only 3BBs. In your situation you have to raise much more. How more? Take a look: You have QQ, a very strong hand, yet a vulnerable holding if A or K flops. Your first thought is to open raise typically at 3BBs. ...

I don't see anything wrong with the way you played this hand, I think you did just fine. Your thinking is along the right lines - that flop is going to hit your opponents range a good part of the time. Fortunately for you, you have two pair, which is great! You check-raised on the flop and you got your opponent to call - that's a great move! Remember, the ...

The short answer to your question is not really, you still have a great number of trials to go through before you can expect to be a better then average poker player. Having said that you have a good start. Fast loose cash games that are akin to play money games require a certain style and knowledge to beat. Fast loose cash games are by far the most ...

IMO, "free" poker is not a close match to cash poker, even at the lowest cash levels. Free poker is great at helping players learn the mechanics of the game and basic gameplay, but it totally misses the behavioral aspects. People act differently when there's money on the line. If possible, try to find an online site that is available in your area and play at ...

Another way these cheating apps can provide an unfair advantage is to suggest to the player what action to take in a particular situation, using the statistics it gathered against those opponents. For example, if someone goes all-in, the app might say "You should call this, you'll win in 75 % of cases" or it might say "You should fold, the player is very ...

There is certainly a number of applications that constantly scans the screen eg. the game tables, offering real time percentages for anything you might think, winning percentage, push/fold situations etc. That is mostly, screen grabbing then computing the images grabbed with pre-grabbed images to find out what the current screen says. This can translate ...

No, that's ridiculous of course. Either you misunderstand what's happening or that software is worthless.

That sounds like an error within the software; real poker games have nothing similar to that function.
