How to register for satellites and tournaments?

I play poker on the side but its always live at the casino or home games, never really messed around with online. I've been hearing about SCOOP and other satellites and wanted to give it a shot at the low buy-ins.

My issue is most sites say you can't deposit any cash since you live in the U.S, so im just curious how everyone buys into these games. Ive downloaded PokerStars, and hit a brick wall.

Sorry for my incompetence with online poker, just getting my foot in the door and hoping someone could let me know how to get started, thanks

You are in the United States. PokerStars does not operate in the United States, with the one exception being New Jersey. Even if you lived in New Jersey, you'd be playing on PSNJ and not PS global. PSNJ and PSG do NOT share players/tables/etc. Thus, you still wouldn't have access to SCOOP.

There are other online poker sites you can play on. That is what this thread is for. Check the first post in this thread to learn more about your options.

Off the top of my head, you can probably play on Chico Poker Network or Winning Poker Network which both have American players.

I think ACR is a good place to play but for best action better to see sites from Asia and Middle East.I play at the biggest site of Israel lately with no issues at cash outs.Also some sites from china and korea very good games as well.Of course there are cases that players did not get payed but thats the minority.One way is not to leave big amounts in the sites.Thats what i do.I think poker is not a fast way to make money any more if you play on pokerstars.i cant win there any more.Small sites is the way to win big today.glgl

There are sites outside the US like Israel that they offer very good hu plo games and you can play from US as well.From the time that pokerstars(8 months ago) left from Israel two companies started to offer hu plo games with very good action.

Can I play poker online in New york?

So I'm an Irish student doing a j1 in New York for the summer and I'm curious as to whether or not I can play poker online here. I'm 19 years old so of legal age n Ireland, but I wasn't sure what the story was in America as I know 21 is the age for lots of things here. I researched a little nline and found an article that said:
Is Online Poker Legal In New York?

New Yorkers who do not want to find a live poker room can very easily turn to the Internet in order to find a way to hit the felts without having to leave home. If you want to play online poker, know that you do not have to worry about the law as there is nothing that has made it illegal for players to participate.

I'm pretty sure I can play (if it matters, I play on PokerStars) but can someone please confirm as I'm trying to avoid breaking the law too much while I'm here XD thanks.

Re: Can I play poker online in New york?

Well no pokerstars here in NY yet. Also, it is not illegal to play poker in NY it's just not regulated. So your only option in NY really is ACR (Americas Card Room). For some reason Ignition doesn't allow NY enrollments. But I would do your own research on cashing out because ACR requires info to verify your acct prior to cashing out. And you being not American in America could tie you up.
Been a while but, I believe I sent pic of ID (or passport for you probably), some kind of bill to verify your address and a pic of the card I used to deposit with. (prepaid western union mastercard)
But gl man.

EDIT:: Actually, if you are able to set up and verify your ACR acct from home it would make it waaaaaaaay easier. Then just use bitcoin to withdraw

Is there a way to circumvent the process of providing the last 4 of my social security number on ignition?

I spoke to someone just last week who tried to get around it... by putting in fake numbers. Their account got shut down by security dept. They had to call in and provide real last 4 digits in order to reactivate it. Leads me to believe that your odds of getting past it are slim.

Don't know about Kahn, but damn skippy, I would have concerns if I played at Ignition and had seen folks posting about having issues, secondary to providing the last 4 of their social #. Just haven't seen any posts of that nature in the Ignition/Bovada threads.

I also have not seen or heard of any issues with regard to people providing this information to Ignition/Bovada.

No rakeback, ghetto software, and 5% withdrawal fees on all your winnings. But other than that it's awesome.

Well, this and the fact that is is using sweepstakes laws in an attempt to operate within the United States borders. Lots of companies have tried and failed to use sweepstakes laws to circumvent gambling restrctions. These sorts of things never work out. (Not to mention it seems like a pretty clear case for UIGEA intervention using PayPal). Anyway, there are lots of examples of these things:

Heart Easiest US sites for low stakes NL+PLO HU and short handed play?

NL is my game but am comfortable playing fish in PLO.

I live in the US so there aren't many sites. I currently play on Betonline but hate their "anonymous" heads up tables.

What are the best/easiest/fishiest sites to play heads up or 4max at micro to low stakes? Eventually want to move up to mid stakes.

I live in Oregon, if that makes difference legal wise (I don't think it does).

It doesn't appear there are many choices at all... blackchippoker/americascardroom seems like the only other choice?

I'm not going to play on ignitioncasino as it's all anonymous.

Thanks for the feedback.

Yep. I'd stay clear of Global. They said they were working on getting their RNG certification last week and then out of nowhere they now claim it's been certified since February.

I don't play on Global. But, I've checked out their forum here. You sir, are in the clear minority.

What's the best sites Louisiana players can currently use?

The first page of this thread indicated WPN was available for LA players, but the America's Cardroom website says otherwise.
