We all know that poker is getting more and more popular and especially online poker. There are millions of people, mostly men, playing this game on the internet and in the casinos, but in this article we are going to focus on the online poker since that is the easiest way to make some serious cash. What is the main difference between playing on the computer from the comfort of your own home and going to the poker rooms? First of all, no one is going to see your poker face when you are at home, which means that you don’t have to pay attention about that, and there is also one big difference as well – no one is going to see your face when you lose all your chips in during the live tournament for example.
That is why there are so many guys who are playing online poker and they are all there for two main reasons – fun and money. Freeroll tournaments are getting more and more popular and also there are many juicy cash games with some serious buy-ins and big blinds. That is what attracts players who want to make some quick money but of course in order to win, someone has to lose.
If you want to start playing online poker, the first thing that you have to do is choose the website that you want to play on. Actually, you will have to register and download their software in order to play. After that you have to make a deposit or win some prizes in the freeroll tournaments but let’s say that you are going to deposit via your credit card.
The next step is choosing the type of the game (cash, freerolls, sit and go tournaments, heads up…), and this is probably the most difficult part since it is hard for someone who has just started to make up his mind. It is very important to make sure that your money management is something that you are paying attention to since you don’t want to lose all your money and to invest it in one tournament for example.
You have probably heard of rake backs. This means that even if you are a losing player, after you get your rake back, you can become a winning player. Don’t forget to check out some of the rake back comparison sites in order to see which websites are offering the biggest money returns. The biggest poker network is Poker Stars and that is the place where you can sit in the same virtual table with some of the professionals and the most popular poker players today.
That is the beauty of poker, you never know what the next hand is going to bring. You might lose all your money or double up. In order to read your opponents better, you need to download some additional software as well so you can use the stats against them.
