Default Good poker game?

Can somebody recommend a good shareware/freeware poker game that can be downloaded for Windows? I don't want to play online or bet any real money, just practice so I don't lose my ass quite so often playing with the fellas. We play a lot of hold 'em, Omaha and 7-card draw.

If you want the practice you really need to play online against other folks.

I play with these:
http://pokerstars.net/
http://pokerroom.com

Both allow you to play free..
Heck, maybe we should even get a SBS poker game going..

That might be a fun alternative to the weekly chat. I'm assuming there is a chat feature on those sites, DaJoker.

You trying to piss me off RR?

Really, I don't see why we can't have both.

Sorry, SISO. You know I love the chats, and have been happy about you providing the leadership in scheduling them.

It's just that there are only so many hours in a week, and I can't do 3 hours of chat and 3+ hours of poker. No reason the board can't do both, but I'll have to choose. (Of course if DaBunny is playing strip poker, it's not really much of a choice! )

The only caveat with online poker--it teaches you the numbers well enough. But if you then play in person, realize some of those pros have ESP.

Hi,

There is a Free Poker Game/ Contest going on at ESPN.com right now (with new ones starting after each contest). The exact address is http://www.espn.com/poker . Then click on the WIN a Seat to the 2005 U.S. Poker Championship box. No its not a drawing for the seat but rather you play for it. Its a pretty good program and there are a ton of people playing on it. Again, this game is totally free.
