Online Texas Holdem Poker for Beginners

Aug 17, 2007
There comes a time in everyone's Texas Holdem Poker life that they consider playing poker online. The beginner Poker player goes from reading about strategy, reading about online poker rooms until finally they make the ultimate decision - to play online.

Some beginner's do quite nicely right from the start while others fail miserably and quit playing online altogether. So what separates the winning Holdem players from the losers? Well, just read on and find out.

The best Texas Holdem Poker beginners play only the best starting hands. They have tons of patience and will fold poor starting hand after poor starting hand until they get the cards that they want.

This takes lots of discipline and can be very difficult for a beginner.

The worst Texas Holdem Poker beginners play just about any and every hand just hoping to hit the flop and make a winnable hand. Sometimes they do and that just makes them feel as if their strategy is paying off.

In the long run, these poor players lose many more hands then they win. Needless to say, they lose money. Sometimes they lose a lot of money.

The best beginners incorporate the "second tier" of best starting hands only after learning to play and win with the best starting hands.

The worst Texas Holdem Poker beginners have no concept of best starting hands let alone an understanding of "second tier" poker hands.

Again, the worst beginners play just about any and every hand just hoping to hit the flop and make a winnable hand. Sometimes they do and that just makes them feel as if their strategy is paying off.

The best beginners start out in small stakes poker games. Just about all online poker rooms have very small stakes games. These small stakes games are referred to as micro-limits.

Because the best beginners are smart enough to start out in micro-limit Holdem games, they can effectively practice their strategy while risking very little money. Typically, the players in micro-limit games are poor and the best players can and do win money in these games.

By employing a slow and steady approach, the best beginner players are able to build up their bankroll for when they progress steadily into higher limit games.

The worst beginners play in higher limit games where the competition is tougher and because they play too many hands end up losing money.

The best beginners study the board, see what the best hand is that they have or can make and then assess if they can win. If they have a good hand or have a very good chance of improving, they stay in the game.
If not, they fold and save their money for the next hand.

I bet you know what's coming - The worst Texas Holdem Poker beginners play too many hands, don't learn to read the board well and lose money.

Simply put, when you make the decision to play poker online, stick to the best starting hands, read the
board, read your opponents, start out in micro-limit games and you will profit!
