As you’re wandering around this site, then I bet you’re interested in some gambling. Maybe poker? However, before making your first deposit to the casino of your choice, you do need to think about many aspects of this game.
We all have played poker with friends when we were just little kids, right? I have, I admit that. It was fun. Every player was dealt first 3 cards and then two more cards. And between the deals everyone could raise and call and check and…yeah, it was fun. Independent of whether you played for small coins or for bananas. At least that’s how the play was for me. However, the usual Casino poker – Texas Hold’em is something a bit different. So if you’re not aware of it, be sure to get introduced.
First, before you even see any cards, you can decide whether you want to play this hand or not or maybe you want to raise the initial amount that you put into the game. After that 3 cards are put on the table and the checking, raising, folding, etc takes place again. Then there comes the fourth card and then the fifth. And there’s often some stupid guy (or smart guy) who raises to ALL-IN. Then you have two choices. You can do the same or fold – of course, if you’re folding, you will lose all the money you have previously put into this game. If you go ALL-IN, you do have to be sure you actually have something. And by something I don’t mean two 2’s. You need to have something more than that. For a longer explanation about which cards you should play with, etc, you can read a longer article at gamblingdudes.com – Which Cards Should I play?
Okay, now that you have the basics, you need to set yourself limits. Have you heard about a thing such as gambling addiction? It’s not a myth that gambling is addictive, it isn’t. So now you need to think – am I able to control myself with all the adrenalin in my brain when I have 2 aces and someone puts ALL-IN? In most cases, you shouldn’t go all-in, especially with no cards on the table yet. So before you actually start to gamble for money, you need to learn to play bit. Even though I have written this article to sound as easy as possible, there are certain terms that you need to learn. As a next thing you need to set yourself limits. How much can you afford to lose? How much can you afford to lose today? And once you have put that on paper (or saved it into your mind), stick to it! You can win big in poker, but you can lose even more.
As a next thing you also need to think about which tables you should play on? What is the maximum bet you can survive? One thing is that in higher tables the players are stronger. But that’s just one side of the coin. To make it possible for you to play and actually enjoy it without running out of money, you should have 100x minimum bet. So if you’re playing in a table with minimum bet of $1, then you need to have at least $100 in your account. Though this is really the minimum.
Okay, here are the main thing you should have learned from this article once again:
* Know the game
* Know your cards
* Know the terms
* Know your limits
* Stick to it!
