I’ll preface everything by saying I have no hard evidence I can offer which proves Poker gambling sites are fixed, rigged or crooked. I realize these poker sites have become household names with the advent of televised poker, but put a pig in a tuxedo and it’s still a pig.

I’m not a big time gambler and you’ll never see me at the World Series of Poker, don’t have the $10,000 entry fee to lose, but I truly do love my poker. Until Texas Hold ’em became the rage I leaned more to 7 card stud. There was a time not too long ago I could boast that I had played poker at every casino in Las Vegas rajacapsa.

I have played poker in Tunica, Atlantic city and on several cruise liners while sailing the high seas with my wife. Some people collect stickers, bells, tea cups or other type of souvenir from the various states or cities they visit. I collect poker chips from the various casinos I’ve player poker in, only $1 chips, and I’ve collected over 100 of them.

I only tell you all of this because I thought it fair to give you a brief glimpse of my history, or addiction, of playing the game of poker. I’ve played thousands of hands of poker.

I began playing internet poker at one particular site, but then the Feds got involved and shut online poker down, couldn’t collect any taxes from the action. Then, for whatever reason, online poker was back in business and so was I.

I joined a high profile poker site because at the time, I could use my credit card to deposit money in my account, that has since stopped. To me it’s a hassle to set up an account at different sites so when I start out with a site I pretty well stay with it, unless something horrible happens to induce me to move.

I played poker on the site daily, sometimes 3 or 4 tournaments. I always played tournaments versus heads up, because if you did win or place, the payoff was bigger for a smaller investment. ROI shall I say.
