It seems too good to be true, I am kinda worried they are going to find a way to screw me, no such thing as free money right?

By the way I am already up 3.28!

Why do drug dealers give away the first hit away for free?

All gamblers die broke, dude.

yep but with .05-.10 games I can play for a while, we will have to see how long it lasts.

Until your paycheck is spent and your credit cards are maxed out.

Most people are hooked by the time the $10 is gone, then they start throwing in their own money.

So that you would spam all of your known haunts telling your 'friends' about it. Basic form of viral marketing.

Same reason why hotels give you free booze and rooms if you play enough.

The longer you play - the more you loose.

I have been playing on my original $50 for the past four months over at Pokerroom.com at the .25-.50 tables. My profits paid for part of the down payment on my truck! One piece of advice! Get some books on the subject if you want to win or dont know how to play!! Ken Warrens books are good and I highly recomend them. They are on limit hold'em but the theories on starting hands and winning percentages all still apply! Play the play money tables first and get a feel for how it works. Play money games are a lot looser than the real money ones! If you are not careful you will get taken! My 2 cent chip!
