Walk Through of Online Poker

May 16, 2008
Online poker has become so popular in such a short amount of time mainly due to it being so easy to get started up with along with it being so easy to find a game with people all over the world anytime day or night. The amount of benefits of playing poker online are almost limitless from no traveling time from home to the poker room, rake is much smaller then at a brick and mortar poker room, not having a dress code, and the list really just keeps going and going.

Poker rooms online operate with their overhead costs being very low. This is a great thing for the player because a lot of the online poker rooms will pass this savings on to the player in the form of great bonuses, free rolls, some great comp point systems, and games that are up and waiting to be played 24/7. Anytime time day or night you should be able to find whatever game it is that you want to play at the time. From a small limit single table tournament to a large expensive multi-table tournament. One of the greatest things of the online poker world is the ability to play more then one table at a time. If you are a good poker player you can maximize your profits by playing more then one table at a time.

Without even looking at how easy it is to play online or the vast amount of games available there are still huge benefits of playing online. The sheer amount of hands you are able to play in a very short amount of time will enable most players to take their skill of the game to another level. The is a great attraction to those that may be new to the game as the best way to learn poker is to play as much as you can. The only downside of this is that when a new player who has only played online goes to a brick and mortar poker room they may get bored easily as the hands play out a lot slower then they do online.

Yet another benefit of playing poker online is that you wont ever need to be concerned about giving away the weakness or the strength of your hand by having a sweaty brow, shaky voice or a nervous twitch. These things do not show in the world of online poker. In online poker the only "tell" that you can give off is the amount of time that it takes you to make your move when it is your action. Even this is not a major concern as the amount of time you take could be due to any amount of reasons, some that do not even have a bearing on the hand you are in.

The largest and possibly the only real big drawback to the online version of poker is how easy a person could lose a lot of money. Being able to keep control of you playing time and amount of money lost is key. This is call bankroll management. If you are a new player this is an absolute must to learn. For the new player it is good to learn that sometimes it is better to just not play at all rather then try to win back what you have lost. A good rule of thumb is for new players is to start with a small limit table and stick to that table until you can win consistently.
