Working Out an Online Poker Strategy

Jul 14, 2008
If you ask any of the German players that regularly play online poker about how they play the game, they will tell you that they use a poker strategy. They will also tell you that the strategy varies from game to game depending on the pot odds and the players. The first thing you have to understand about playing online poker is that it is decidedly different from playing across the table from players that you can see. You can't really get to see the players, so there are no visual signs you can use to read them. In order to gain information about a player's hand, you do have to place a bet. This translates into many more probe bets in online games and this many more probe raises just to see what the other players have.

With the rise of popularity in online poker in Germany and other countries of Europe, there is also an increase in the number of online poker sites. It is simple to join a site. All you have to do is sign up and if you are not sure of your skills, you don't have to play for real money at first. This is one strategy that many professional players used to get started. This way you learn the rules of the game and gain more skill through practice without losing any money. Then when you do feel that you have advanced enough to play for money, you can start with low bets, which reduces your chances of losing any amount of money. Although you won't win any great amount either, it helps you gain confidence in your ability. Having confidence is a necessary strategy for playing poker.

There is a limit in the amount of money you can deposit for chips per day in online poker. You can start to build your bankroll by winning or by adding to it with deposits each day. These deposits can affect the way you play because you know that when you lose you are out of the game for the rest of that day and you have to start building your bankroll again.

An excellent online strategy for German players is to play multiple tables. It is best to stick to two tables at first and then as you get used to switching between tables, you can increase the number you play. It is good to remember that even the veteran players rarely play any more than 4 tables at a time. You do need to have your eye on what is happening at each of the tables and if you find it difficult to switch from one table to another and still know what is going on, you shouldn't play too many at once. However, playing multiple tables will increase your chances of winning and thus adding to your bankroll.

You should look at the names of the players at the table. Since most online players do play multiple tables, when you see the same name cropping up several times, you know that this player doesn't have all of his/her attention focused on one table. Multi-table players are easy to bluff because of this lack of attention to detail. While you can use this to your advantage, others may also use it against you.
