Oct 12, 2007
It is said that playing poker is truly addictive, once you get the hang of it. There is something in the game that holds you in thrall, mainly because you use strategies and observation to beat your opponents. Poker is especially fun if you have a natural habit of looking at other people, and reading their faces, whether they are bluffing or not. If you have this talent, then you are in for the win. With just the right deck of cards, the right strategies, a vast amount of luck. Of course, with the perfect poker face, you can almost be sure that you will be collect winnings in every game.

Playing poker usually happens in a gambling house or a casino. You go there, pick a table and start playing. One game can stretch for up to 5 hours or more. The intensity of the game can become quite alluring as you can become lost in the techniques and the bluffing this game requires. Watch your opponents, strategize with your cards and make sure that nothing is showing on your face.

But what if you have the choice of playing poker at home? Lets say play poker in the internet with the opponents and with the same decks. But then, you cannot see your opponents. Online poker is offered nowadays. This new technological development presents a way playing poker at home without the hassle of going out.

But before diving into online poker, it is nice to know the differences between the two. First of all, your strategies of reading other peoples faces to see if theyre bluffing are gone and virtually useless. So you have to rely on other things if you aim to win. You might try calculation of the cards to see if you can win. Bluffing will also put you at a disadvantage so you have to rely on playing a straight game to win. You also have to keep in mind that unlike the traditional poker, this game will definitely not stretch to about 5 hours. 10 minutes is enough for each game. You also do not have to play in just one table with online poker, instead you can join in multiple tables to assure yourself a win. You just have to keep in mind that your strategies in playing poker in a casino will be rendered useless when playing online.

Playing poker online of course greatly decreases the intensity of the game. Although playing online poses the attraction of you not leaving your house just to play, well, it has its disadvantages. Since strategizing is one main attraction in playing poker, it is still much more enjoyable if you play against real people, with real expressions and real strategies.

For real poker enthusiasts, it does not matter. If you really want to play poker, may it be in a casino or at home, you can dive in and win all these games.
