Ok, I might be slow but I'm not a complete moron , I hope. Anyway, the point is basically moot since the play money games are making my head hurt and it is just frigging bingo.
That said, thanks a lot for the great conversation all! I am going to get my danged bank account open here ASAP. i finally found out all I have to do is take my passport with me and they will let me open an account, then I change my accounts at Poker Stars
and the other sites to my local address and bank account instead of my stateside stuff.
Should be good to go soon.
Once again you CC folks sure know how to get to the core of a question. I'll be more descriptive next time. I didn't intend to ask as if I had a choice of playing real or play, primarily i wanted your input as to whether playing play money could hurt me by developing crappy habits. I've been fairly succesful in the past playing as some here might agree (or not nyuk nyuk).
