Every time I check for a good place to play I always find that the same number of people who have had good experiences are about the same number of people who have had bad cash out problems, customer service issues, lost chips, checks they can’t cash etc. I signed up at intertops Poker and it only showed a handful of cash games where there was a list of about 20 tables with no one on them. Where’s the games? Then I downloaded Bovada And was giving the software a trial run on the practice tables when the other day I couldn’t log on because the robot detector ( click on what you see in the picture) just kept repeating OVER AND OVER! I was going to deposit too but now I just don’t know. I hear so much about how great these places are. What if I had deposited money and then it wouldn’t let me log in? Very frustrating, once and for all- where can you really play ( US friendly)

Where to play part 2

See, nobody can tell you with full certainty the reliability of any poker room. I love poker and have been playing for years but when they cracked down on US players we lost A lot of opportunities. Now it doesn’t matter where you check every single place has had withdrawal problems, late or delayed cash outs, miracle hands that best you on the river ( I know it happens for real but just read some of these on here). Ungodly fees for this and that. I had played at ignition poker and seemed to be great until one day I got Error4 message and could never again log in even after I contacted them. Don’t know how it happened and tried to fix problem on my own Computer thinking that was it but no go. What if I had a few thousand in there, or any other room? I lost the money I had in my account and never got it back. If you are thinking of playing don’t deposit anything more than you would be willing to bet a street corner guy playing a shell game.

Trust must be earned. Try a different approach. Choose a poker room and register without a Deposit. You can play some money on freerolls and then make a minimum Deposit. You will be able to withdraw a certain amount after some time. Trust will appear when the money is returned to your account. This way it will be easier to build your bankroll in the future.

I can't recommend a safe place to play. Because I played in two poker rooms only full tilt poker and pokerstars. But try to do as I wrote in the previous post. You don't risk anything.

If you had an issue w/ Bovada, try Ignition. Betonline is another good site, and ACR. All of these are U.S friendly.

I cannot give guarantees and as PS and PP are out maybe you should test Americas Cardroom (ACR) and BetOnline (BOL), make the minimum deposit(I don't know if you can make withdrawals it without doing this before), validate your account, play for a while, make a withdrawal and then analyze if it is interesting or not

I feel for you looking for US friendly rooms. The whole poker situation there seems to be a grey area. There are some rooms in UK where I can't play any more like Bet Online, in general though we have a good choice of options here. I long for the old days of the poker boom where we could all play together and all rooms were busy.

Play in your zone

Hello, you have to find the area where you are from to be able to play with real money, for example if you are from Colombia but want to play from poker stars Spain, logically it will not let you.

America's Card Room and Betonline are my picks for you. Both are US friendly. Cardschat have freerolls on them too. I have been playing for more than 3 years on both. I have won and withdrawn hundreds from both. I have also lost a bunch as well. For US the best banking option is Crypto.

I like America's Card Room. You can make withdraws including freeroll money.
