    I wouldn't risk any money in online poker until this matter is resolved. As of right now, if you're in the US then you cannot play online poker...sucks I know. Easiest thing to do is move to Australia.

    And if you have money tied up right now, it's not going anywhere for a while.

    What sites should US players go to play now? Or should we just lay low for the time being.

    Its just the big sites that are shut down. Bodog is still running and I believe cake is too.

    Also the sites have not been shut down. Stars and Tilt are still running for non-us players.

    NL is the most lucrative since it has the biggest community...
    The last 10 years playing MvC2, I can honestly say I still see things playing marvel now that I've never seen before. crazy - clock

    I'd rather buy 6 copies of MvC2 than buy 1 copy of TvC3!

    I am now playing ____ when _____ comes out I will be leveling up in that game, even if it is crappy because I am a gaymer!

    LOL Super MvC3? The game isn't even a year old and they are already scrapping this game.

    I want Ariel in SMvC3!

    Damn @ the sites being down for us U.S. players. I was just talking to my friend about getting started on online poker the other day and he told me I had real bad timing, then he broke the news to me. This probably sucks royally for the players whose money is sitting in limbo right now.

    'Wondering what's the point of them shutting it down online? Too many underage kids gambling or something?

    NL (No Limit) is just a betting type of the game of choice. You want to learn Texas Hold'Em and probably Omaha Hi.

    I was on youtube last night looking for lessons but they all took too long to get to the card stage, one guy spent 20 minutes talking about types of chips and shuffling cards.

    Learning Omaha hi playing heads up potlimit with a friend who is a good player. It's a way more dynamic game than Hold'Em. Really fun, if online poker wasn't such a bust right now I'd be playing it at low stakes right now probably.

    I believe Omaha has more skill to it, but Hold'Em also has more fish because of how popular it is. Hold'Em is where the money's at, for sure.

    Yeah for sure, Omaha is way harder to play and has less players and thus less bad players.

    I don't play poker to make money, though it doesn't hurt when I do. I just play it because I like to play games.

    I remember playing Omaha one night with my friends and we all loved it. I'm also a big fan of 7 card stud (it was the first type of poker my dad ever taught me) but you don't see it at casino's anymore because Hold'em is so popular. Sucks for my dad he basically had to adapt to playing Hold'em all because of the WSOP.

    Same here. I love poker, but I don't play to make money. I just enjoy the competition.
