ALL ABOUT POKER – IS PLAYING POKER ONLINE SAFE?
By Bill Burton
Bill Burton is an advantage blackjack player and skilled poker player. He is the author of the book, "Get the Edge at Texas Low Limit Hold’em," (available in the BJI online store) and the guide at www.casinogambling.about.com.
In only a few short years Online Poker has become a billion dollar industry. In the last year alone live poker games and tournament play online has grown by staggering proportions. One estimate I saw listed the prize pool for tournaments from October 2003 to the present at $102,015,000 (primarily from online events with a few related land based events.) If the growth continues and most agree that it will, 2005 will be another record setting year for online poker as more players log on to try their hand at the virtual felt tables. This will present a great opportunity for the skilled player to make some money from uneducated players who are just using online poker as a form of entertainment.
I have been playing online poker for a few years. When I discuss online poker with players who have yet to give it a try, it seems I always get asked this question, "Is it safe?"
