2012: The Year for Online Poker
Online poker has been exponentially increasing in popularity since the late 1990s. It’s evolved from a primitive, pixilated game to an alternate reality in 3D poker rooms such as PKR. Everyone should get a fresh start each year, so if your poker ‘luck’ wasn’t so good last year don’t worry! There are a few tips which I have engraved into my poker game, that I believe are the difference between making a real profit from poker and losing your hard earned cash. These tips may seem basic, but with a fresh year comes a fresh start to poker – and this time we’re going to start it right.
Play at the right level. It’s easy to find the first poker tournament you see and click ‘register’, but if you take just a few moments to think about what tournament will be most lucrative for you, you’ll end up making much more money. I’ve always found that the best return on my investment (yes, I do consider the money I stake an investment) has been from cash (or ring) games. Play at a table which has a big blind 100x smaller than your bankroll. This means, if you have a £10 (I’m using pounds/pence for this, exactly the same for dollars/cents) bankroll you sbobet mobile shouldn’t play above 5p/10p blinds.
Avoid the gimmicky tournaments. To make money from poker you should only ever play three types of poker tournament structure:
- Cash (ring) game
- Sit and Go
- Multi Table Tournament
As discussed above, cash games tend to be the most lucrative (at least for me), Sit and Go tournaments are the best for new poker players as they have fixed buy in fees, so you can’t lose more than you stake. Multi Table Tournaments, although the hardest to win, give the largest return on investment over a short period of time.
Take advantage of the best bonuses on the web. This one really is a no brainer. There are two main types of bonuses, and both can be very profitable if used correctly. Firstly there is the no deposit bonus. This means that once you’ve signed up to a poker site you’ll get money credited to your account, to play at the poker table. The reason the poker site gives you this bonus is that they expect you to continue playing after you’ve spent the no deposit bonus. If you play the system, you can open an account at each of the poker sites which offer no deposit bonuses, and collect multiple bonuses to practise the online poker tips you’ve learnt. The second type of bonus is the standard ‘new customer bonuses, where the poker sites will double your first deposit. This is, in effect, doubling your bankroll before you’ve even started playing cards!
Online poker is attracting millions of new players every year, and with a few essential online poker tips, it’s possible to make a profit from these people.
