Believe it or not many people nowadays make an entire living just by playing poker online. The professional players just simply analyze each player by watching their play on a ring game table then they swoop down and try to second guess what hand they have by the way they're playing. Just by playing safe on ring games you can slowly build up your pot (only betting on the hands were you'll defiantly win). You can start with low stakes until you hone your skills and work your way up to the bigger and bigger tables. When you're very confident in your skills you can enter tournaments for a huge cash prize with a small buy-in. If you become a regular poker player then you'll be eligible to enter into poker freerolls which is a free to enter event with several cash payout's for the top players, i.e. you can win without paying a penny! It's also worth giving a try out as you can even play real people using "play money" to get the hang of the game before you commit any money.
When you have practiced playing at no risk for as long as possible, have a go at playing a low-risk cash game. Most games cost around 35 pence to play, and this will be when you compete directly against another online opponent. The person with the highest points score will win around 60 pence (the online games site will obviously take a cut first), and the loser will be 35 pence out of pocket. When you feel confident and are comfortable taking on other opponents, have a go at a different variation of the game that you are playing. Some games will charge about £1.50 to play, and there could be several entries with the winner receiving a prize fund of £70 and runner-up-prizes for the other entries who do well.
