A friend just sent me a link to this site called PurePlay. You can win money playing poker, but you don’t have to deposit any of your own money, which means that it is legal to do. How is this possible? I haven’t downloaded the application, but I suspect that the format is similar to freerolls that are offered in online poker rooms. I used to play in these freerolls, and I think that they are good for beginners, because you get some real experience playing with players who have some skills and take the game seriously. You can’t win much if you place in the money, and the odds of doing this aren’t particularly good. I never won any money. It is definitely better to play in freerolls than to play for play money, but not by much. So give it a try, but expect to be bored in short time.
