I started playing online poker in 2006. While surfacing the web, I came across PokerStars site. So, I deposited $10.00 and started playing .01/02 Texas
That $10.00 is the only money I have every deposited in any poker site
that came out of my pocket. It is 2016 and I am still playing using BR from wins. And, that is in spite of being ripped off by several poker site that either went belly up or just moved on under another name or what ever.
I have about $100.00 BR on three sites. And, only play penny games. I don't expect to get paid out because most of the sites are crooked and will not pay out in any event.
