How To Play Online Poker

Online poker games and poker rooms become an integral part of our everyday life and a very important area in the poker world. From today’s perspective, the ’80s, when the poker game required a few friends ready to invest money, a matching table for a game and a deck of cards seem so far away.

Benefits compared to real-life poker are numerous. Some of them are:

  • The opponent does not see you, so you do not have to worry that with some motion or facial expression you will discover your potential bluff
  • Online poker rooms at any time of day or night offer a lot of tournament and cash games
  • You do not have to travel to a casino that offers Texas Holdem poker, you just turn on the PC, find an new online casino, register, and you’re ready to play,
  • There is no fear of possible robbery while carrying a pile of money with you after a good evening at the tables
  • You can play multiple tables simultaneously, which brings more profit
  • Online, you can choose between all variations of poker
  • You can play online at tables where a couple of dollars is more than enough, which is unimaginable in a casino.

Types of poker

There are several variants of poker games, with many special games within these variants:

Straight poker

Straight poker is the oldest of all poker variants. In straight poker, each player gets five cards face-down, and these five cards make up their hand. Best cards win. Betting takes place in one round and players can raise or re-raise another player’s stake.

Stud poker

In stud poker, players get cards alternately, face-down, or face turned upwards in multiple rounds. Bets are after each round. Seven Card Stud is the most popular stud game that is played today, in which the player gets seven cards to compile the best hand of five cards.

Draw Poker

Draw poker games start by giving each player five cards face down. After the initial round of betting, players are allowed to replace cards that they do not want from their own hands and get new cards instead.

Community poker

Community poker games are today most popular, especially when it comes to online poker. In the poker community, players are given fewer cards than they need to complete their entire hand and they are turned face down. To complete their own hands, they choose community cards from the table that are face-up. These cards can be used by all players, who combine them with cards they already have, in order to make the best five-card poker hand.

The most popular poker games played today are Texas Hold’em, Omaha and 7 Card Stud.

How to deposit and withdraw?

Another thing you should consider are payment methods. Fortunately, things are pretty simple these days. You can use all kinds of credit cards and debit cards. Depending on the part of the world, there is also a variety of pre-paid cards, bank transfers, e-checks, as well as third-party eWallets.

All these methods are very reliable and the only potential issue is that, in most cases, you will have to wait for a couple of days to get money on your bank account. If you want something quicker, consider Skrill and Neteller cars, but keep in mind potentially higher fees.
