Being a beginner online poker player can be a frustrating time.
Poker is truly a game of skill and the more you play poker the better you become. Obviously there is the element of chance, but seasoned poker players reduce that element greatly.

OK enough of that, now here are a few things that just might you help out in the long run.

  • First of all, We believe that one of the most important parts of playing online poker is to have a pen and paper beside you, and take notes as the game goes on. You are wondering what would I possibly write down when playing online poker? Well, there are a lot of things to write down, and these are a few of the things that we like to keep track of:
    • keep track of players names
    • players betting habits
    • length of the game
    • total number of hands
    • how many hands you won
    • how many hands you lost
    • how often you bet
    • how often you folded

Some poker players collect much more data to tabulate than this, but this is the beginner section, and you can modify the criteria as you progress from newbie to skilled player. Go over the info after a game, and analyze what occurred during the poker game.

  • Knowing when to bet with the hand you have. What we mean is, if you have a good hand then bet, but if you don't have much, then throw them down. Knowing this will certainly keep you in the game a lot longer. Not folding enough is a clear indication that you are a newbie poker player and advanced players will spot you a mile away and start to read all your actions. Try not to let them know you are a fish!
