Poker 101

  • Stick with the same strategy as normal poker – use a combination of tight play, aggressive play, random play and taking advantage of opponent’s mistakes. But mix it up so that you don’t become predictable.
  • Don’t expect to win every time – your goal should be to play your best, and to improve.
  • Be prepared for the time-bank feature. Online poker can progress a lot faster than playing at a regular casino.
  • Start small – online poker makes it possible to multi-table (playing several games at the same time). Master your game at a single table before branching out!
  • Decide on your reasons for playing before you start – is it for fun or is it because you want to win. Play accordingly.
  • Check bonus offers – online casinos offer players different bonus offers when signing up. Decided whether you want a FreePlay offer so that you can get used to the game before making a deposit or if you want a deposit bonus that will boost the amount you deposit yourself.
  • Stick to your limit – decide how much money you could happily do without and don’t play with more than that.
  • Never stop learning – poker is a lifelong game. Never approach it thinking you know everything.
  • Don’t overlook tells – you might not be sitting across the table from the other players, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tells. Read into any chat that happens between players and look for betting styles and repetitive actions.
  • Take a break – don’t let the convenience allow online poker to take up all your time.
