I started about 4-5 years ago, my friend told me to try it out.
Didn't like it at first because at that time it felt like "gambling".
My friend then coached me in how to play the game and it starts opening my eyes on the game of poker.
Even now i consider myself a fish, but i do earn a bit from it playing online.
one thing i can say is that, i have never deposited more that $10 in any poker site online. the $10 was just to activate and to be able to withdraw the fund.
One thing that helped me or anyone playing online is the invention of the HUD, without it, i would have lost a lot of money playing poker.
I play using HM2 with Leak Buster and it helped in the table.
For now I believe that poker is a game of Skills, even if you get shity cards, if you play it right. you still have a chance of winning.
