Is Online Poker Different Than Real Life Poker?

Jul 5, 2008
In this day and age there are lots and lots of different ways to play poker, from just playing for fun, to playing for serious cash amounts in your local casino or online. There are a lot of differences when comparing the alternate versions of the games. I feel that you have to have a lot more self control when playing online, due to the fact that you will be using your credit card and it wont hit you how much you have actually spent until your bill comes through.

Also another thing about online poker is the fact that the game is so fast, in real life poker you have a chat a laugh and try to evaluate your components, you get time to think and plan your next move. Online poker is just you, in front of your screen playing the game so fast that you are unable to think clearly. So you just keep clicking at your mouse buying more credits and losing more money.

All in all I feel that if you keep your cool and you write down a plan of how much you are going to spend, online poker can become a very good money earner. The reason for this is because if you just do not get too carried away and sit down and relax you can be in your prime. You will have no-one staring at you and making you nervous. You will also have the luxury of being at home with maybe a snack or drink.

There are a few tips to remember when going into a poker room either online or off. Without these tips you will be bound to fail. Firstly you should always remember that everyone plays poker differently, so don't always think to yourself, this is what I would do otherwise you will lose. You must think out of the box. Never start counting how much money you have won otherwise you will start thinking that you are on a winning streak and will probably lose out if you continue playing.

When you are playing poker always stay silent, there is a reason that we get told to be silent in exams and it's not just for the cheating, it is because you can concentrate much more when your surroundings are quiet. Finally the most important aspect to remember is know when to quit, whether you are losing or winning do not try to please your ego. You should have your money laid out from the start once that has gone just walk away.
