This is a discussion on Starting off with real money within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; Let's say I was about to put 50 dollars onto any site. I was wondering what sites you would recommend for bonuses and other things.
Let's say I was about to put 50 dollars onto any site. I was wondering what sites you would recommend for bonuses and other things. Is there a easier site to make money on. I was also wondering how to use this money. Should I go into sit n' gos or should I try tables with low levels? I have played poker for about a year but only recreationally. All input would be great. Thanks
There isnt a massive difference between the players on any site. Pokerstars gives a 100% deposit bonus up to $50, and the $1 45 players sit and goes are a treat.
Any bonus you get at the lower limits will be slow to clear though, bear that in mind

To make your playing experience more enjoyable I suggest you read the bankroll management thread in the "Golden Archive" section. This will get you thinking about managing you roll from day 1.
I've personally found that CostaDelPoker is a great site to build a roll on due to fishy players at the lower limits. However, at the right table on Stars you can do just as well.

With $50, other than Stars you are not going to get much in the way of deposit bonuses - but once you build it up to $500, you could do the $100 5x bonus at Party and/or Empire (assuming that signup bonus is still active), which is a piece-o-cake to clear.

The reviews tab at the top of the home page here might help you decide what is best for you.Good luck.
LEARN ABOUT THE RULES FOR GETTING THOSE BONUSES !!!!!
To my knowledge NO site just doubles your money instantly.
You earn that bonus in a variety of ways, but usually it is a rake or vig type thing. In ring games, for every hand you are involved in, you get x cents credited toward releasing a part of the bonus. For tourneys it is a fixed amount dependant on how many players and how big of a buy in.
The act of earning that credit toward releasing a part of your bonus is refered to as 'clearing' and you might search this site and others for particulars.
Ring games appear to earn at a faster rate than tourneys.
