All About Online Poker
Online poker is simply the online version of poker, which is commonly played over the Internet with the use of a computer. It was partly responsible for the rise in number of online poker players all over the world. This is because unlike land-based casinos, you can play online poker for free and without the fear of getting banned by your bank or other poker rooms. The major advantage with online poker is that it allows players to play poker at their own convenience, from wherever they may be in the world.
One of the things you need to know about online poker is that there are two different kinds: live and non-live. Live poker is where you actually pay to play. You will be playing in a real casino with other real players. However, you will not have the chance to see each other during the course of your game. Non-live poker, on the other hand is where you play against the computer, and your win or loss will not depend on whether or not you see another player during your turn.
Most online poker rooms offer both types of games for their players, and while the majority of sites offer the free live games, some of them offer non-live versions as well. As such, if you are only planning on playing in one table, you will need to choose a site offering non-live games. However, if you are planning on playing poker online for real money, then you will probably want to stick with the live games to begin with.
