Online Poker --- Is It Safe? --- Is It for Me?


Online Poker Rooms

Rapidly Growing in Popularity

Playing online poker is fast becoming the most popular form of Internet gambling. You can play Texas holdem online, and match your gambling skills against players from all over the world, playing live poker games, with real people, right on your computer.

Texas holdem is by far the most popular online poker game today. This means that every poker room will have a good selection of Texas holdem games available. You can even enter texas holdem poker tournaments, and win a seat at the WSOP (World Series of Poker). If you think its a stretch that you could be playing in the World Series of Poker just by playing poker on your computer, consider this; Hundreds of people qualified for the 2004 World Series of Poker just from playing in texas holdem tournaments on their computers.

Online poker, if you haven't tried it yet, can be an awful lot of fun. It's not as intimidating as a private game, much less intimidating than playing in a Casino, and there are many free tables you can sit at until you are comfortable enough to play for real money. The software does all the work for you, and will tell you when it's your turn, and how much you can bet. Games are available any time of day or night, so you can choose when you care to play. You can play poker on line, and chat with people from all over the world, while enjoying the comfort of playing in your own home, in an atmosphere you are comfortable with.

With over 2,000 online casino, and poker rooms to choose from, trying to pick one that is trustworthy, reliable, gives you the best odds, and that you feel comfortable with, is challenging. For more information on selecting a poker room, click on Choosing a Casino, and look over the Casino reviews, to get very good advice on selecting a poker room.

Remember that while online poker is fun, and can be profitable, there are some things you need to know before putting down your hard earned cash

Since it is not possible to know the track record of each and every online casino today, it is my recommendation to stick with the older more established, and well known ones. See my (Top 14 Best Poker Rooms, and Top 14 Best Casinos) list. Most of them use software that is leased from the larger gambling software companies such as, Microgaming, Work Gaming, Boss Media, and Playtech, and have a reputation of being reliable, and trustworthy.

Most poker rooms offer instructions on how to play poker. For the beginner, Paradise Poker has created one of the best FREE poker instruction available, enabling you to learn how to play poker, at your own pace, while sitting at your computer. This is the most simplified, easy to learn, 10-minute poker instructional tool available. If your new to poker, or would like to brush up on the game, invest 10 minutes of your time watching this very well done video.

Poker room.com have another excellent Free Poker School. If you know a little about poker, and would like some help improving your game, you should visit this site, where you can try out a few lessons that should help improve your poker game. The intention is not to turn you into a pro, (to do that requires a lot of study and massive experience), but rather to give you the confidence to play low limit poker for real moneyand enjoy the excitement of it.

Many very good books about how to play poker have recently become popular, and I have compiled a list of some of the best Poker Books available, at very reasonable, prices from Amazon.com. Gaining a little knowledge about the game and its many strategies can be a useful and wise investment of your time.

Have fun playing poker online, and good luck.
