Chips
At home you can bet with pennies or peanuts, but chips are used in all casinos, whether in geo-space or cyberspace. Internet games use virtual chips rather than physical chips, but outside of play-money games, they nevertheless represent real cash to be won or lost.

Therefore, in order to play in an online money games, you'll have to deposit funds with the online poker games casino of your choice. Once you have money on deposit, you've created what's essentially a debit account. From it you purchase virtual chips as needed.

If you want to start out with a play-money games, it's even easier. You won't have to deposit funds at all; the casino will simply give you a starting stash of play money so you can jump right into a game and start playing. Oops, lose your original allotment? Most Internet card rooms simply give you more play money whenever you run out, so relax and have fun!
Draw That Missed
 
The turn brought my low in, 8?. I had half the pot and gutshot draws on both ends for the other half. I bet again, lost one player, and three of them called.

The river was a disaster for me: 3?, counterfeiting my low. I checked and folded to a bet. A 64 won the low and a pair of Aces took the high.

This hand didn't work out for me at all-I include it because I think it serves as an example of why it's important to start with hands that have very strong draw possibilities. The possibilities of hands like this are just too weak, and the hand has no backup, no counterfeit protection. Essentially, you have to get lucky three times with such a hand. First, you have to get lucky and hit a solid flop, then get lucky and make your draw, and finally get lucky and have anyone with a better draw miss. This is a little too much to ask.
