BQ: Do you actaully win real money on How does that work?

admin answers:

I would advise to wait till you’re 18, set up an account and play freerolls if you want some experience but don’t treat it as real money. If your 18th birthday isn’t too far away then when that time comes don’t waste your own money depositing, use a site like to get free money to play with as you will probably lose it your first time out.

I play at and you can play with play money or real money there.

1. Don’t Play Every Hand / Do Fold More
Probably the number one mistake beginning poker players make is that they play far too many hands. When you’re just starting out playing poker, you want to play poker, and that means staying in hands that aren’t very good just to be part of the action. But playing more doesn’t mean winning more, it usually means losing more. If you find you’re staying in half or more the hands you’re dealt, you need to upgrade your starting hand requirements.

2. Don’t Play Drunk
Countless nights have I sat across a table from someone & watched them get plastered silly and throw away their entire stack of chips. I’ve been that person too – and there are nights where you’re just playing with friends for low stakes and it’s more about the fun than the poker – but if you’re in a casino, watch the alcohol. The truth is, while you may be more relaxed after 2 drinks, it may lead to you playing looser and less sharply, even if one’s not ‚drunk.‘

3. Don’t Bluff Just For Bluffing’s Sake
A lot of beginner’s understand that bluffing is a part of poker, but not exactly how. There’s is NO rule that one must bluff a certain amount or at all during a poker game, but many players don’t feel like they’ve won unless they’ve tried a poker bluff. Bluffs only work in certain situations & against certain people, and if you know a player always calls to the showdown, it is literally impossible to bluff that player. It’s better never to bluff than to bluff „just to bluff.“

4. Don’t Stay in a Hand Just Because You’re Already In It
Another common mistake beginners make is to think that „Well, I’ve already put that much in the pot, I have to stay in now.“ Nope. You can’t win a pot just by throwing money at it. There may be cases when pot odds warrant a call, but if you’re sure you’re beaten, and there’s no way your hand can improve to be the best hand, you should fold right away. The money you’ve already put in the pot isn’t yours anymore, and you can’t get it back just by playing a hand all the way to the end.

5. Don’t Call at the End of a Hand to „Keep Someone Honest“
This one follows the last tip. I see a lot of players look at another player’s final bet, look at the hand, & say „I know you’ve got me, but I have to keep you honest,“ as they throw in a final call. It may be worth it to see if a player really has the hand if you’re not sure & you’re gaining information that will help you later on, but if you really feel a player has the hand he’s representing & you’re beat, why give him another pile of your money? Those bets will add up over an evening.

6. Don’t Play When Mad, Sad, or in a Generally Bad Mood
When you play poker, you shouldn’t do it to escape from being depressed or having a really bad day. You start out on tilt — playing emotionally, not rationally — and you won’t play your best. Likewise, if during a poker game, you lose a big hand or get sucked out on and feel yourself going on tilt, stand up & take a break until you feel calm later on. Fellow players will sense your mood & take advantage of it.

7. Do Pay Attention to the Cards on the Table
When you first start playing, it’s enough just to remember how to play and pay attention to your own hand. But once you’ve got that down, it’s incredibly important to look at what’s going on at the table. In Texas Hold’em, figure out what the best possible hand would be to fit the flop. Make sure you notice flush & straight possibilities. In 7-card stud, pay attention to what’s showing & what people have folded when you consider calling opponents.

8. Do Pay Attention to the Other Players
As you play, one of the single best things you can do is observe your opponents, even when you’re not in a hand. If you know if one player always raises in a certain position, & another has a poker tell when he bluffs, & a 3rd folds to every re-raise, you can use that information to help you decide how to play against them. Once you know that player 3 always folds to a re-raise on a river, that’s when you can bluff & steal a pot.

9. Don’t Play at too High Limits
There are many reasons people move up to a higher limit game than they usually play. Good reasons like they’ve been winning consistently at a lower lever & are ready to move up, & bad reasons like the line is shorter for higher limits or you want to impress someone. Don’t play at stakes that make you think about the actual money in terms of day-to-day life or with money you can’t lose. Even if you had one super-good night at $2/4, resist the urge to play $5/10. The next tip explains more why.

10. Do Pick the Right Game for Your Skill Level & Bankroll
One of the reasons you shouldn’t jump into a $5/10 game after winning a huge bunch of money at $2/4 is because as the stakes rise, so does the average skill level of the players sitting there. You want to be one of the best at the table,

Chris asks…

whats the best online poker game for pc? 10points?

Which do you thinkis better or Partypoker? (For free users not playing real money)? for playing with playmoney

admin answers:

Seriously, nothing different between pokerstars and parytpoker if it’s playing with play-money. I’d like to say if you play play money, you may have to endure a bunch of reckless actions as the play chips are easily reloaded.

If your goal is to hone your skill and improve your game, I’d rather recommend you try allinspot poker because it is not a real money poker, the risk is zero, however because the virtual money can be exchanged for real money, it has real value and the quality of play is extremely high. I’ve been playing there since this Feb. And I’m very satisfied with it. It also offers freeroll games every half-hour, so you can just play game as long as you want. Hope it will help.

Thomas asks…

Online poker question?

I’ve been playing for a while, and frankly I don’t find it very difficult to gain, say 10k for example. However I’ve been thinking about switching to real cash lately, so want to see what I can expect.

What is a good starting point, how much should I invest if I want to make $1000. What site should I play at? Is playing with real money a lot more difficult than with play money?

Anyway, thanks. Hope to see some good answers.

admin answers:

#3 Has good tips about fulltilt including how to make the max out of your sign up bonus!
