Many folks feel that online poker and online games in general are rigged, or machine controlled to determine the outcome. With that said, if you broke even online, the experience you would receive viewing thousands of hands and situations, would certainly excel your game (when playing live). Many say that they will never deposit again (since Black Friday), so now there are alternative sites, subscription sites, and pay sites that offer "play money" games, and even sites that allow you to play without a deposit, and earn your bankroll through a series of wins in freerolls (or as the call them on JaoPoker), "freebuys." You can play 5-6 of them a day, some bigger prized ones throughout the month, and you can challenge yourself the discipline to win (cash), and then grow your bankroll. The eventual goal is to cash out some profits, but that will take time, and during your personal challenge, your game with grow (we both hope). Come check it out, post your successes here, and share hand histories when you need some guidance.
