re: Poker & WHERE IN SAM HILL are............
Look up at the top of this page, right under the tabs for poker forums
and strategy articles is the link to Bodog. Click it and sign up there! CC has some freerolls
and buy in's there too that are a lot of fun.
Begginers table stakes go up to at least $10 with 1/2 field paid. Play good solid poker, if in doubt stay to the tight side and others will make mistakes and go out. One quick note you actually need to make it to 4th to earn money as 5 pays entry fee less rake (4.00 +.40 games you get $4 for 5th and lose the .40 rake) Those are probably the softest tables around.
I have actually had several games there I didn't even get to play a hand before I was in the money
Best of luck!
