The online poker room review website Poker Online UK has this week reported that there are many professional poker players making their bread and butter living from playing poker online.

Poker Online UK recently interviewed an ex-student Joe Moran, living in Edinburgh, who started playing online poker for a bit of fun while studying at college. Joe had played poker before he tried it online and found the progression to playing with avatars instead of people a natural one: “once you get over the initial wariness of not being able to see your opponent, you begin to realize that online players have tells that you can only spot by playing online”.

Joe supported himself through his first couple of years of college by working in Tesco. After a year of playing online poker Joe was able to give up his part time job and supported himself by playing online poker. Joe finished up at college last year and has been building up a small little fortune ever since. Joe heard about Poker Online UK from a friend and after being in contact agreed to an interview.

Poker Online UK is a website that is dedicated to informing the potential online poker player of the best places to play poker online. The site is ran by a small group of experienced online poker players: it is a review site of the top poker sites/poker rooms to play on.

Poker Online UK also provides other great information for prospective poker players. The site has a page detailing poker hands and poker rules that anyone can use to help them learn how to play poker, and as a guide to which hand beats which. There is also a page dedicated to Texas Holdem Rules so that even an old hand poker player can learn to play the poker game that’s swept the Globe: Texas Holdem.

The site also has a glossary of poker terms, and a page of poker bonus codes so that a new online poker player can get some free money when they make their first deposit: so giving them a head start in making their way in the online poker circuit. On the homepage of this poker overview site there are links to the various poker sites, clicking through these links gives an automatic bonus with their first cash deposit.

The first poker bonus code used by Poker Online UK, for the very popular poker room Party Poker, is “POUK”. If a new player signs up to play at party poker that player can put POUK in the “bonus code” box when filling the form out in the process of signing up for Party Poker, and that player will receive a free 20% of their first cash deposit, and can receive anything up to $100 free! Another poker bonus code for Party Poker is POUK25. This code will give the new player a free $25 when they sign up and make their first deposit, no matter how much their first deposit is.

It simple to type POUK in the box when signing up with Party Poker, but the Poker Online UK website makes it even easier. For most of the poker rooms listed on the homepage of Poker Online UK it’s simply just a matter of clicking on the special link to that poker room and the bonus cash will be added to the new players account as soon as they make their first deposit. For example: if you click on this link now and make your first cash deposit there will be a free $25 added to the real cash account when the Party Poker account is created and the first cash deposit is made.
