What is Gambling: the act of playing for stakes in the hope of winning (including the payment of a price for a chance to win a prize); "his gambling cost him a fortune"; "there was heavy play at the blackjack table"

Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died. ~Seven Wright

Most of the poker junkies today preferred looking for some free online poker games and rooms than playing in actual casinos or actual poker rooms. Well, maybe it is for the reason that they found some worthy matters of choosing the free online poker than the actual one. However, there are still several poker lovers today that are not aware of the advantages and disadvantages of the free online poker. So to give you some helpful details about the free online poker, I would like to deal generally on both advantages and disadvantages of the free online poker.

Playing the free online poker may be great but we can't deny that free online poker may also have disadvantages. So to mention first the advantages of playing the free online poker, it is important to note that playing free online poker in the first place doesn't need you to drive to a casino. You just need to sit in front of your computer and locate some of the free online poker games, and then you can start playing the offered free online poker.

Also, playing free online poker will give you the freedom to play the offered free online poker in your underwear, and you can even smoke at will or breathe clean air at will. Another important advantage of playing free online poker is that you don't need to tip the dealer and you can even sing along to your headphones without disturbing any free online poker player. And lastly, the free online poker always submits itself to many free online poker players who have never experience playing poker inside a casino and therefore may not be that "social" in their play.

However, the bad news for playing free online poker includes the fact that your free online poker opponents may easily submit and share details about their hands on a communication channel to which you are not part. Aside from that fact about playing the free online poker, your opponents may also play their hands in a fly-by-night manner by means of a communication channel in which you are not part. Also, in a free online poker, you may play the free online poker with the same person over and over. And of course by playing a free online poker, there is no way for you to be aware that the above mentioned disadvantages of playing the free online poker are still occurring, and even the free online poker operator may not acquire knowledge about it.

So whatever your decision is, whether you will play free online poker or you will drive to casino to play poker, then go on as wish. But please proceed with caution.

Poker can be a lot of fun. Please always play with the intention of having fun and leave the heavy gambling to the pros. Many lives have been destroyed because of addiction to gambling.
