      hi there
      Just thought id say hello to the community
      im 25 from UK

      starting playing poker at university with some freinds and quickly fell in love with the game. Started to play poker online last year as i dont feel comfortable playing live unless its with freinds as its a bit intimidating at times.

      just found this site and its great ipoker deals which im going to try and take advantage of this year :) )) especially the gemstones and sign up bonuses.

      i like sit and gos especially super turbos but not sure what im going to play on ipoker yet depends on traffic as iv never played on the network before

      wish me luck :P

      Hi Jessica,

      Hows it going? and...... welcome!!

      I understand completely where you're coming from with regards to live poker games, especially when you have some numpty wearing sunglasses at the table, thinking he's pro!

      You're right we're running some great promotions at the moment and do you know that If you invite your friends through our Tell-A-Friend promotion, you'll also receive bonuses for their poker play? For details please click here :) .

      If you need anything just drop me a quick post/CS ticket and I'll be happy to help.

      Thanks Mark!!!
      yeah i will see if my freinds would like to join i think your 50 dollar starting capital would be good for them as they are just used to home games really

      Yeah the sunglasses are funny :P but its mainly the macho men and the 'nice hand love' that i dont like

      i posted a question in the beginners thread please can you have a look at it for me :)

      hoping for 5000 rake this month although not sure yet what im going to end up playing either super trurbos, jackpot games or double ups lol probably a mixture of all 3

      might do a girl power blog to make sure i dont get lazy and take to many days off as a motivation

      wish me luck

      Hi, Jessica, and welcome!

      If you're from the UK, you could always try the nuts poker league for some live and friendly games.

      Well... how friendly depends a bit on your venue of course, but they are quite friendly in general and if you try a few you can find really amazing ones.

      And you can even play on them "for free" (i.e., no buy in but usually a fee around 50p or £1 depending on venue). If you decide to buy in, the tourneys are usually £5 to £6 BI and a field between 12 and 30 people (again depending on venue).

      Anyway, sorry if I tend to write too much :D

      Most important of all... have fun :)

      I think if I were a girl I'd love to seriously reply "I know" to a jerk who said 'nice hand love' to me.

      But then again, I'm not a girl so I can't really know :D
