Inspired by the card game thread...

I'm on http://fulltitlepoker.net as JKyle.
They have free tournaments to win things like Lakers or Staples Center prize packages.

I used to play on WPTOnline but their server started being a bitch to me.

Bonus question: Does anybody know any sites that are Mac compatible? I've got a friend who wants to practice online but he's one of those... Special.... people who don't use a PC.

Got a big Hold Em Game Tonight IRL... wish me luck. Or not.

I went to Pacific Poker yesterday and it took me to a Mac-specific page, so I'd give that a try.

EDIT: I primarily play at QOGS.com. I finished ninth in the $30 freeroll last night after a guy KO'ed my piar of kings when he hit an ace on the river. Not that I'm still bitter about it.

I believe Pokerroom.net is Mac Compatible, but i'm not positive on that one.

Personally I play at UltimateBet and Bodog.

Ehhh, I wouldn't bother with Pacific Poker's "Mac-specific" java client. It's just awful - slow, ugly, you name it.

I play at Poker Room, which has a beautiful java-based client for Mac users. They also have plenty of 1st deposit/reload bonuses.

Cardplayer magazine mentioned that Full Tilt is beta testing an actual OS X application, rather than web based java application.

I play at Bugsys Club (real money) which has Poker Pages as its play money side. But you can still win points on poker pages to trade over to the real money side. I've got about $30 on the real money side right now that I've won from free tourneys. My name on there is Odoyle_Rules.

Full Tilt just went Apple compatible to the best of my knowledge ...

I play on a variety of sites.

PokerRoom.com as 51366 ... I'm often found on the $0.50/$1.00 Stud Hi/Lo tables, or mulling around in a non Hold 'Em tournament for the most part. Hold 'Em is starting to lure me to insanity.

UltimateBet.com as chriscfgb ... When I feel like playing in the 8:40pm Omaha Hi/Lo Limit tourney. I've played in it about 15 times, won the whole thing once, and second another time, cashing about 10 out of those 15 times total. I haven't played in awhile, often because I'm catching up on sleep at that time, or I've forgotten. I also enjoy the fact that they have Deuce to Seven lowball.

PokerStars.com as chriscfgb ... They have an amazing $20 180 person sit and go that runs just about every 15 minutes. Rare that I turn up here, but every once in awhile.

Other sites I may make occassional appearances include any of the Prima sites (when the local boys are holding one of their online tourneys), Doyle's Room (when I feel like losing my mind playing Badugi), Full Tilt (but I hate the layout), and Party Poker (yuck, not anymore, I dropped about $500 there in a span of about 3 days at one point ... too many donkeys)......

95% of the time though, it's all PokerRoom all the time ... Great layout, great games, lots of money to be made, I have no complaints.

I started out at Partypoker.net, then a poker messageboard got me recently into weekly or bi-weekly private freeroll tournaments at different poker websites. I actually placed 4'th out of 19 in the first freeroll, only one spot out of the "money." Doing this got me to poker.com and absolutepoker.com, so I'm Mystery_Matt at both places.

Interesting to me was the fact that friends really pimped Absolute Poker, but I found that Poker.com had a much better set up and has freerolls every 3 hours or so where a novice like me can try my luck out without using real money. I think that I will stick with poker.com when I want to just play at one place.

I like TruePoker.com, but that's because a good buddy of mine is the VP of Marketing there.
