    There is no software that guarantees winning with poker, regardless of what their claims might be. There are poker odds calculators, but that's really the best you can do. Nobody should play poker expecting to win. It's the kind of game where you start with $10, lose $8, then win $13... and that's if you're lucky! I've been player poker for several years and if you or your brother want some playing tips, you can PM me and I can help you out a little... however... I don't think trying to make money with poker is that great of an idea.

    Ah, I'm sorry... in the PM it seemed like you were just in it for money. Try FullTilt or PokerStars.

    A lot of idiots seem to play at Full Tilt, people are pretty much predictable on there with the cards they have with the betting styles.

    Let him play a couple SNG's "sit and gos/small tournaments" and see how he does, if he's good as you say he is.. Set him free.

    Chances are he's a mediocre player and will be that way at Full Tilt until he learns how people play on there.

    I'd say go to FullTilt and play some free tourneys before playing in paid ones. I regularly get to the final table in them... if he's any good, he should be able to also.

    Which tables do you usually play for money? I'm always on the $5-$20 6 person SNG's

    Oh I don't play for money online, I just polish my skills. I go to casinos to bet real money.

    Go for PokerStars, that's my favourite at the moment. Winning lots on play money rarely means much. I'd expect him to maybe make quite a bit to start with, just off the back of never having played real money before and being both lucky, stupid and clueless. But unless he gets rid of stupid play money habits and relearns how to play and starts to understands odds in a good way, he'll be wiped out in no time.

    My little sister was up to $x,xxx,xxx in play money at one poker site. When she started real money she deposited a few hundred $ and was clean out of money inside 1 week. Seriously, lambs to the slaughter.

    But then again there are success stories to online poker aswell. There have been several guys that used to only play .25/.50 tables and built up crazy bankrolls.

    I used to see them regularly in $50,000-$100,000 pots daily, you can Youtube some of them to see for yourself.

    Now you don't see big pots like that anymore, I guess the economy is too bad or they went broke. Probably a little of both.

    Try pokerstar, i still remember losing $100 with AAAKK (my hand AA) vs KK one year ago there. Internet marketing is more profitable than betting in poker.

    I see myself as quite good at playing poker, but only on the just for fun tables, playing for real money is a whole different story, people playing styles can be really different when they start playing for real cash, and that's why I would never play for real money.

    I don't bother with the poker that much for the purpose o wining. It only happens in the James Bond movies where the agent always wins in the end. Not in real life. One night I am king and the other night I am empty handed. Don't rush, it's just a game for fun.
