Free Online Poker Games

Mar 21, 2008
Free online poker games are everywhere. You can find them on poker stars, absolute poker, full tilt poker etc...FREE OF CHARGE. Now if you are new to poker in general and do not know the poker rules quite yet I definitely suggest you start playing online. If you have been playing poker for years and years at a local casino or a home game, playing free online poker games is MUCH different. Reason being, you can't actually see someone's facial expressions and getting a read on an individual's poker cards is much harder online. Also, catching a bluff online is much harder than in person. The good thing about playing poker online is when you finally get familiar with where to play poker online and how to when playing for play money poker chips you can move into playing for real money.

The first thing you must know when you jump into real money tables is they are MUCH MORE different than playing for play money. Player's games completely change when money is on the line. Don't ask me why, but if players don't have money on the line most of them are just not motivated to try and win. To reach the stage of players trying you have to move into real money games offered on all the same sites that you can play free game online poker on, you can play real money on also. What I suggest you doing is depositing $50.00 if you do not have that much. I was a poor college student starting out when I started playing for real money. It has turned into a house, car, and me being able to quit my job so it is definitely possible. After you deposit this $50.00, many poker sites such as fulltilt poker and poker stars will give you a 100% deposit bonus to match whatever you deposit up to $600.00. That's great for you, right when you deposit that $50.00 you now have $100.00 bucks to work with. Instead of jumping right into a cash game with this $100.00 I strongly urge you to try out sit n go games. You can't go wrong with poker tournaments online. If you are unfamiliar with sit n go's basically they are mini tournaments consisting of 9 players which the top 3 of these players make it to the money. The prize structure is as follows:

3rd place = 20% of the total prize pool offered
2nd place = 30% of the total prize pool offered
1st place = 50% of the total prize pool offered

Looking at these payouts, winning first place in a sit and go is like three 3rd place finishes. It is VERY important to try and get first place each time. A great poker tip you should know is to play tight all the way through until there is 4 players left in which you need to play aggressive. When there is 4 players left everyone will start playing tight but YOU in hopes to hang on for a 3rd place finish and into the money. This is the most perfect time to steal their blinds and cruise your way into a first place finish.
