Online Poker Guide: Getting Started

Getting started with poker rooms is usually fairly easy. When you get to a new poker site, you'll be asked to download their software or to register to the site. It's important to check that the poker site has a good privacy and security policy, and is licensed and regulated. When you've decided to join the site, you'll have to give your personal information and set up a payment system, either by credit card or by an online payment service such as eBay

When you're new to online gambling, play your first several games with play money. Since there are variations in rules from one online casino to another, you should always play for fun in a new online casino before you put your money on the line. Be sure you feel comfortable with the table setup, the game rules, and the general level of players before you play for cash. Remember that different betting structures change the strategy of the game, so it's important to play with a betting structure that you understand well if you're playing for cash. If you want to learn a new betting structure, head back to the free-play rooms. You'll be glad you did.

When you've found a casino you like, and you've found a game you feel comfortable with, read the rules and the odds once more before you sit down at the poker table. Look for a table with a limit that suits your budget. Be sure you know how much you're willing to spend and that that is going to be enough for the game you want to play. If you try to sit down at a table and it's full, you can sign up to be notified when a place is empty. You can usually also watch the game while you're waiting for the table to free up. Use this to your advantage. Take notes on how the various players play. Make sure that you understand what is happening. Make sure you would feel comfortable in a specific poker game before you join it. Look carefully. If you don't like what you see, move on to another table.

Good online casinos always offer you the statistics for each poker game. Find one that has good odds for winning. Be sure to use any information that the online casino gives you. While you can't watch players' faces for bluffing, try to use any information you have about a player to your advantage. Take note of the player's name, location, any information provided.

Since no one sees your face and no one knows you, you're free to jump from table to table as often as you want. Remember that if you go in the middle of a hand, you will lose any money you've bet so far, and if you don't fold properly, you will be bothering other players who wait for you to take your turn. Be considerate, but remember that no one cares if you move between hands. This is completely different from a regular land-based casino, where table-hoppers are considered rude and players are expected to maintain the same position for several hands in a row. In addition, there is no pit boss who could get annoyed. Enjoy your freedom!

If you find a table with the game you want, but there is no one at the table, stay at the table for a few minutes. Most people won't stay at an empty table, but if someone sees you at the table, they may join you.

Tournaments are usually listed separately from regular games. Be sure you understand the game well and feel comfortable before entering a tournament. Remember that bigger sites will have bigger tournaments with higher prizes. On the other hand, the larger the tournament, the tougher the competition.
