Winning Secrets Of Online Poker

Our goal is to show you how to be a better poker player, regardless of how you want to play the game. If you only want to play good cards and never take any risks, you can play that way. If you want to be a wild man who always stays in for the last card in a hand, where you only have a 5 percent chance of winning, you can play that way. For that matter, you can write out a list of strategies and tactics, and then roll dice to determine your next action. We don’t care what you do, as long as you don’t throw away a winning hand after the last bets are down. That would break our hearts.

Playing poker online is a blast. No one can tell you how to dress, that your music is turned up too loud, or that your play fails to meet a certain minimum standard. More specifi cally, if someone does try to tell you anything you don’t want to hear, you can muzzle the moron with a few deft mouse clicks. Online poker has come a long way since the early days, but you’ll appreciate the game more if you know from whence it came.

Poker, particularly Texas Hold ’em, has exploded in popularity over the last three years. You can fi nd Late Night Poker on the air in England, the World Poker Tour on the Travel channel in the United States, and even ESPN, a sports-only network based in the U.S., has expanded its World Series of Poker coverage to include the Razz, Stud, Omaha, and other tournaments in addition to the $10,000 buy-in main event. Dan Goldman, the vice president of marketing for the popular online poker room PokerStars, said in a September 2004 interview that his best guess was that between 50 million and 60 million people worldwide play poker at least once a month.

How many people play online poker? It’s hard to tell, mostly because it’s diffi cult to associate an Internet identity with a person’s real name, but online card rooms do note the number of players on their sites. Figure 1.1 shows what that note looks like on PartyPoker.

PokerPulse, a Canadian site that tracks the player and wagering statistics published on the most popular online card rooms’ home pages, estimated recently that during one 24-hour period 7,341 players played for real money in online tournaments, 7,072 players wagered real money in ring games (games that continue at the same limits and without eliminating players from action when they lose a set amount of chips), and that more than US$141 million was wagered in online ring games during that 24-hour period.
