Casino Games – Online Poker – Part Two
How to choose an online poker room. The choice of poker rooms is significant. It is wise to pay attention to the following factors: convenience of deposit and withdrawal options, availability of required games and their aftermath – total number of players, level of opponents, software, support, bonuses, etc…
If you only want to use at to deposit and withdraw funds and bank transfers, then it will immediately limit the list of available poker rooms. If you can use multiple methods of depositing and withdrawing funds, for example, you have an account with an electronic wallet such as moneybookers or neteller then this issue will not limit your options.
The next question is: what game and at what limits will it be played? Texas hold’em limit and no limit, as well as single and multi-table hold’em tournaments are very popular in any room, but those who prefer Omaha poker, and stud poker should choose the most attended rooms (Party, Stars, Full Tilt) to find an opponent. The same refers to those who like high stakes, not all rooms even in Holdem have gamblers risking $50/$100 or higher.
Most players want to win money, so they look for weaker poker opponents. Lately the trend of leveling opponents in different rooms is becoming more and more obvious, however Party poker rooms and casinos are considered to have less professional players (Prime network, Boss Media, Playtech, Pacific Poker).
Players may have specific requirements for poker room software, for example, non-downloaded software offered by Ongame, Prima and Party Poker. Multiple rooms allow for reducing desk size, and a computer screen without overlays accommodates four desks with a resolution of 1024E768. For someone, the Poker Tracker facility can be a criterion. One can buy a Tracker and use it, other players prefer poker rooms that Poker Trackers don’t allow.
In general, it’s not about WHERE you play but HOW you play. So pick a room with a sufficient number of opponents at your chosen limit, the right choice of deposit and withdrawal of funds, maybe a good bonus and keep going!
After registering, log in and enter the lobby. Here, as a rule, a gambler will know the number of players, the latest news, choose an option, enter the cash table to make a deposit. But the main thing is the choice of the game. A gambler can choose the required game (holdem, Omaha, stud, etc.), its type (limit, unlimited, pot limit), cash or tournament (sit & go or multi table), limit. The number of players and anticipation is shown for each table as well as the average jackpot, number of failed players and number of hands per hour. Players can view information about all players from the selected table in a new window. Players can join an empty table, or a waiting list (players can wait for an empty table the first time at a certain limit or a certain table).
To make the first deposit, enter the cash desk and deposit the required amount, select the payment method.
When the table is open, the gambler can take any empty seat. The appearance of players and tables differs from one poker room to another, but the principle is the same everywhere – an oval table with chairs around it. The chat options are usually at the bottom of the poker room site, as well as options and buttons for decision making. Even if it’s not your turn to take the lead, you can use the start action selection button. Tick one of the proposed flags and when it’s your turn it will be done automatically. If you have not made the initial selection, then you must select one of three buttons: Fold, Call, Lift. You can use the mouse to operate, but some poker rooms allow to play with the keyboard using “hot keys”. Your pocket card is displayed next to your name,
Enjoy the experience with online poker.
