Almost 30,000 poker players entered this year’s World Series of Poker and an ever increasing number of them won their $10,000 buy-in by qualifying online. For the WSOP 2006 the number of online qualifiers will supply an even more significant proportion of entrants. Now is the time to be in training and looking for tournaments where you can win a free entry and a ticket to Vegas. Is it a pipe dream that an ordinary online poker player can really go to Vegas and end up “in the money”. Certainly not! This year alone over one hundred onliners managed to do just that in 2005. Add to those statistics the fact that Chris Moneymaker was able to come from an online entry to win millions a couple of years ago and you have all the evidence you need. So start checking out the tutorials right now if you feel you have what it takes to become a winner.

FREQUENTLY ASKED POKER QUESTIONS Q: Can I play the casino section at dailystarpoker.com for free? A: Of course. It’s the best way to practice and you can discover how everything functions without taking any risks.
Q: What are deposit bonuses? A: A deposit bonus is money offered by most of the major online casinos to encourage you to sign up. The offer is genuine but is always related to certain conditions. A typical condition would be you must wager the value of the bonus twenty five times before you can withdraw the bonus offered. If the conditions are met, and all the sites have fairly similar restrictions, the payment is real and can be withdrawn.
Q: I’ve noticed card values are different in Red Dog Poker. Can you set them out for me? A: The cards two through to ten inclusive are worth their face value. However, a jack is worth eleven, a queen twelve, a king thirteen and an ace fourteen.
Q: Do you have any tips for Red Dog Poker? A: Yes! Bet when the spread is seven cards or more. If you watch the “marker” on the board you’ll see the spread and the odds on offer clearly visible.
