Playing Live Casino Poker for the First Time - What You Should Know!

The type of game and the stakes you are going to play for are the two first decisions you have to make before entering a live casino poker game.

The minimum buy-ins in most live poker rooms are ten times the minimum bet, but a general rule of thumb is to never bring less than forty times the minimum bet to the table.

This means that you should for a 2/5 game bring a minimum of $80 and for a 5/10 game bring at least $200.

Poker chips are used as a replacement currencie for real money in live casino poker rooms.

You buy the chips from the cashier in the back of the poker room before sitting down or a chip runner will bring the chips to you after you have sat down at the table of your choice.

Most live casino poker rooms have a desk in front of the poker room with a Brush (casino employee) working behind it. You tell the Brush your name and what game you want to play.

You will most likely be placed on a waiting list when you get there but the Brush will tell you what the approximate waiting times are like for each table.

When your name is called, the Brush will point out the table and the seat you will be playing at.

You count seats in clockwise direction from the dealers left, so the first seat to the dealers immediate left will be seat number one.

The mechanics and the flow of playing in live poker games will become second nature to you after a little while. You will pick up a lot from watching the other players and don't be afraid to ask the dealer or a floorperson if you have any questions.

True Poker Guide covers a comprehensive list of poker rules, tips and strategies for all poker games including tournament and satellite play.
