Tips for a online newbie / before I register
Hi All,

I am new to this game (at least online), and I just want some tips from you guys on how to start with playing online poker. I am planning to start straight away with a 200 dollar deposit :-). I have several open questions:
- On which poker room to start?
- Which bonus to use, or start without any bonus?
- Can I start with only a no deposit bonus or do I always have to deposit?
- Which are sites with the weakest fields? < probably best site for me ;-)
Hope you guys can give me some answers :)

Thanks M.
