Playing poker online isn't always easy. It can be confusnig
and frustrating and enough to make your blood pressure skyrocket through the
roof. Thats why I'm going to give a few tips on it for the less experienced at
#1 Tip for Playing Poker Online
Don't think that just because you can't see your opponents faces that you can't
still read them as you can in real life poker.
Carefully observe what each player does at the table and before long you'll
start to see pattern in what they do. Which will enable you to predict what
they'll do next.
Is one guy and extremely tight player? Does he fold to every bet but one hand
suddenly start betting like crazy? That means that he finally hit a really great
poker hand. Now unless you've hit the best poker hand that can possibly be out
there this is a hand you really need to fold.
However, there will always be the poker players out there that are impossible to
read. The unpredictable and always changing. It's good to be like this yourself
partially, because you don't want people to read what you're about to do. It
makes it so much easier to bluff you when they can read you and vice versa.
With the unpredictable poker players you just need to wait until you've really
hit something good and let them dig their own grave.
#2 Tip for Playing Poker Online
Never and I do mean never, bet on the first few hands at a play money or dollar
poker table. I don't care what you're holding. There is almost always a few
people who will go all in with the first semi good poker hand they get. Usually
going all in pre-flop so you have no idea if you'll hit anything or not if you
Also the more people that call the all in the less chance you'll be the winner
of it. So betting early on isn't usually a good idea at these tables because
you'll usually just have to fold and lose the chips that you bet.
The best idea is to wait out the first couple hands you get if there aren't any
all ins right away it's safe to say you're sitting at a table with much tighter
players than are usually at a play money or dollar poker table.
In tournaments this isn't the best plan of action. The blinds will get too high
and if you don't make money early on it will be much harder to make it later on.
#3 Tip for Playing Poker Online
The best thing you can do in poker is try to see some free or inexpensive flops
and bet big when you have something. Always consider the possibilities of what
other people might have or might be chasing after though before you put too much
money into the pot.
