Why Online Poker is Better Than Land Based Poker


Online Poker has become the greatest hit in the online gambling industry, being current cash cow and source of income for many people involved. It provides an unique opportunity for the world's top players, who enjoy poker action against each other or any player without leaving home.

In my humble opinion online poker rooms have many advantages over land based poker rooms, if compared.

One of the most logical thing to mention first is "no travelling". You don't have to pay for the cab to visit your local casino. It also helps you save time, which means more poker action for you. More poker action simply means that you can play more poker and playing more poker means more game experience and bigger skill.

Online poker rooms usually have bigger selection of games than land based ones and also offer better opportunities to learn the game without you feeling uncomfortable - in the internet everyone is anonymous, so no staring eyes, mean looks or fist shaking.

In the internet you can play multiple tables at once. It increases your win rate and will probably raise your profits too, because you most likely end up playing 200 or more hands per hour. Now, how sick is that - it's 4 times more than in land based poker room!

Also - and that's one of my favorite aspects of online poker - there's no real dealer in online poker rooms. That means no tips and I like it (sorry, dealers and dealerettes!). I recommend you to start counting the money you give away to dealers when playing at a casino - you probably notice that you "donate" more money to dealers than casino edge would take from you anyway, in the long run that is. Also, when there's no dealer, there's no dealer mistakes made.

Even though I mentioned earlier that you can end up playing more than 200 hands per hour, I assure that you have more time to concentrate on your strategy and play without pressure (no external pressures like too sexy dealers or other similar factors).

Online poker rooms also give out bonuses, which rarely happens in land based poker rooms. That means more money and more money means more poker! Have fun!
