Online Gambling...Trustworthy Sites?
 
Do you know of any?

I've always been a little hesitant of online gambling.

All the sportsbooks and casinos on my page are big trustworthy sites. As far as poker goes, I list them all - even the smaller ones because I know them so well. I would recommend Intertops because you can play poker with Party Poker players and bet on sports with the same account.

Do you actually play with real money?

Fixed
 
I think party poker is fixed. I took an insane amount of bad beats. I'll go all in with a set or 2 pair or top pair and almost always lose on the river. I believe that its fixed to speed up the game so another game can start to collect the rakes from. I'll get crappy players calling a huge bet with nothing but an inside straight draw and catch on the river.
Also, I played a $1 NL game at Bugsy's once. I tried to lose on purpose. But instead I continued to make ridiculous bad beats. Heck, I went all in on the last hand with a J 7 off against pocket 10s and flopped a JJ7. I was all in 15 times that game with 9 calls and 1 loss. It was prolly fixed to built up one's confidence to play more expensive games.

the NL cash games at Bugsys are the craziest anywhere. There is a guy there named DangerousDan there or something who sits down with $10,000

I have to agree with you on that, although I don't mind because I usually don't play for real money. I've played hands where I would have a straight going against a backdoor flush. He'd get the cards he needed 80% of the time. But like I said, I usually play with play money, so I don't mind too much :P

Online Gambling...Trustworthy Sites?
 
BTW, EmpirePoker and PartyPoker are the same site...

I think they have such a great business that they themselves have NO incentive to cheat players... however, I have felt that sometimes other players may have been colluding... and I don't believe any of the poker sites could do anything about it even if they could... despite their protestations to the contrary...

Like real life casinos, they are set up as "the house".... the house just RAKES in the money... (couldn't resist stupid pun....)
don't see why they would need to cheat you, but collusion between players... yup, could see how that would be irrestible to less than honourable people...
