I know it seems like a lot to digest, but you will benefit from it in the long run. This is the last page so just keep reading :)

  • As a beginner, it is a good idea to play with fake money. However, be careful using this strategy, as people that have played with fake money for a while, tend to be very loose with their real money. By this we mean that throwing away $200 fake dollars is a lot different than losing $200 real dollars in a live poker room ! So to reiterate, start with fake money, but don't play too long!

  • If you find yourself playing in a poker room where you haven't even won a hand and are getting your money stripped from you fast, then just get up and leave. You are probably at a table where the players are above your level of poker. There are always other rooms to play in, and you are better off finding that poker room where you are the whale, not the fish.

  • Having a few drinks while you are playing a game of online poker is just fine. But getting tanked while playing is a good way to lose all those hard earned bucks very fast. As I said earlier, and will probably say a lot more, poker is a game of skill, and you need your brain in full form while playing!

  • So the above point leads me into this one, try to follow proper online poker ettiquette, and don't be rude. There is nothing worse than playing in a room with a player that is loud and obnoxious. Yes you can be loud and obnoxious online :)

  • The most important tip of the All Stars Poker beginner section is to make sure you set a budget and stick to it religiously. Do not deviate even a penny from this budget. You will lose some playing online poker, and chasing your money is a serious problem.

With all this said, just make sure you have fun :)
