Online Poker

Essentially, online poker is the best way to learn the game and practice. Many people who play in a casino have fairly unrefined skills and have difficulty winning, simply due to their lack of experience.

Some of them have begun playing poker online in an attempt to develop their skills. Online, they were able to play thousands of hands in a shorter space of time. This is because online poker is faster than casino poker. Within six months, their games improved immensely and some have managed to obtain consistent cash game results and the occasional tournament victory. But online poker is not simply a tool for improving your casino game. Many players around the world make a living playing online poker. Others do not play for a living, but are consistent winners nonetheless.

Unlike many casino poker rooms, online poker is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Further, there are various forms of poker available through online poker, such as hold'em, omaha and Omaha hi/lo. There are also various betting limits available through all the various forms of poker. You can play anything from a 50cent-ante game of Omaha through to a $40 game of Texas Hold’em. So it doesn’t matter whether you have $50 or $5000 to play online poker with. It caters for all tastes and bankrolls.

Online poker can be played in the convenience of your own home. There is no need to get dressed and drive off to the casino, find a car park and put your name at the end of a long waiting list. You can play online poker in your bedroom, dressed in a bathrobe and you’re usually seated into a game straight away. Even if you have to be put on a waiting list for a game, the wait is very brief compared to casino poker.

Most of all, online poker is great practice and experience. You can fit in 60-70 hands per hour on online poker. Most casinos run at about 25-30 hands per hour. Because there are low limits available, you can experiment with different styles and strategies at minimal expense. Furthermore, online poker also offers tournaments 24 hours a day. Since success in tournament poker requires a great deal of experience, you can practice and refine your tournament strategy, again, at minimal expense.
