Texas Holdem Poker Games - Which One Is Best For You?

Feb 21, 2008
There are many different types of Texas Holdem Poker games out there; finding the one that you enjoy and suites your needs can be a hard thing to do. Aol game texas holdem poker, US legal Texas Holdem Online, no money texas holdem, and free texas holdem games are some names people refer to online poker as, which usually means playing for NO money. Now when you play poker online for no money you must remember one thing. Other players DO NOT take it seriously and you will not see real poker until you play for real money. I have seen it way to often at the poker tables when no money is involved, people just don't care and will keep going all in just for fun to see if their "2" "9" can hold up against 3 other people's all in's. Now if you have $100.00 riding on the texas holdem poker tournament, do you honestly see people going all in with "2" "9" ? I mean it gets ridiculous and boring playing for play money. I use to do it all the time and thought I was God, because I use to take it VERY serious and constantly win first place in Sit-N-Go's. I was starting to lose interest in the game and I was just so frustrated with people not caring, I decided to give real money a try. The site I started on first was Fulltilt Poker and I deposited $50.00. They automatically gave me a 100% deposit bonus right away which brought me up to $100.00 dollars. Now, like almost every person that starts out playing poker online starts playing cash games and usually goes broke within an hour. I read many online poker reviews and many poker message boards telling me to start playing Sit-N-Go's to build up your bankroll. Boy, I am glad I listened to them.

I started playing $2.00 +.20 Sit-N-Go's (the lowest one's almost every online poker site offers) and I did really well. I was finishing first place after first place, while taking down 2nd and 3rd some. I honestly probably cashed out in 8 out of 10 texas holdem poker tournaments at the $2.00 +.20 level. My bankroll was approaching $250.00 after about a month of grinding. I decided to switch over to the $5.00 +.50 because now I had the bankroll to support it. To play Sit-N-Go's you need a bankroll of 20-30 times the amount of the tournament you want to play. Well after about another month or two of grinding and grinding real money Sit-N-Go's I had a nice bankroll of around $1000.00. At this point I moved up in stakes to $20+2 and eventually $50 + 5 in roughly 4 months. In a year, I was over $20,000 and I NEVER have looked back. What I am trying to say is, be patient with your money online, don't try to be a hero and win $1000.00 in one night starting out depositing only $50.00. If you think like that be prepared to lose your whole bankroll in a HURRY. Have patience and learn poker as much as possible, especially the basic fundamentals and you will definitely see an improvement in your game; not to mention a fatter wallet!
