      HI I come from Macedonia and I'm new to poker ,just started playing hold'em online.I don't have any money so I play in freerolls, but I can't tell I'm good at it.I usualy finish in the top 20-30 % but I would like to get to the final table in every second turnament I play.I was wondering if someone can recomend a good begginers book! I'll play a turnament every day and hope I'll get better at this game.See you at the table BABY !!!

      when you buyin to a SNG tourney there is a fixed rake which is somewhat 10% which is usually stated by 1+0.10 . Rake paid in tourney fees is usually more rewarded than rake paid during cash games

      I just passed the quiz and now they are asking me to provide them with all this personal information. I would have never taken the time to pass the quiz in the first place if I would have known that I would have 2 provide personal information. :(

      Hello CmyKK,

      Since you are applying for essentially free money, you will of course have to provide some sort of personal information. Otherwise anyone could simply apply for starting capital - without any control what so ever.

      Before you continue you though I just want to re-mark that we are currently not capable of transferring starting capital to players residing in the USA.

      Best regards

      why? that sounds strange as pokerstars, full tilt amongst others accept us players...........

      especially when pokerstars is one of the $50 transfer sites
