Thanks to the evolution of technology, especially the internet, almost all games are accessible online. As a result, if you are used to playing live, you will face some adjustment difficulties during your transition. Don't panic, no rules change. On the other hand, as a newcomer to online poker, you need assistance. Discover 5 tips that will make you win for sure!
Try to master the aspects of the online game
Online poker has some special features that a beginner needs to take the time to master. For example, a given amount of time is required to learn how to use the time-bank feature. You need enough time (which you don't have during live games), in order to master :
- Discount offers, bonuses;
- Balance and account management;
- The appearance of the site and the lobby,
- The betting features.
As a beginner, play poker on micro-limits.
Whether you're a professional or a beginner, it's advisable to start playing online poker on low limits. This way, you take the time to familiarize yourself with the various nuances. Then you start with a low bankroll. This way you will not be stressed about losing and you will gain knowledge.
For a start, play on a single table
One of the many advantages of online poker is the ability to play at multiple tables simultaneously. You would certainly be tempted to do so, but being a beginner, it would be a dangerous game.
Take a few weeks to assimilate the various technical contours of the online game and then win several times with a single table. Once you get used to it, it will be possible to add another table gradually, until you reach the number of tables you can handle.
Plan to buy new equipment
Playing online poker in an ideal environment certainly increases your chances of winning. This ideal environment is largely represented by the gaming equipment. When you are playing on a PC, sitting on your couch with friends or family, you are distracted. But in a secluded space, facing your PC, you maintain a professional attitude.
If you have to spend a lot of time playing games, invest in a practical, ergonomic chair so that you don't suffer from back problems in the long run. Certainly, as a beginner, maximizing your online profits depends as much on buying the right hardware as on adapting to transitions. For this, in order not to tire your eyes, a large monitor would do the trick. In addition, a mouse would reduce the tension on your wrists.
Play in a distraction-free space
While playing online, avoid :
- Watching television;
- Having conversations with friends or family;
- Surfing the net
These small distractions will make you make mistakes. Developing an unprofessional attitude towards online poker prevents you from improving your level. It is therefore important to create an environment that is conducive to the game. The sooner you master the management of a table while enjoying some free time, the better.
