Playing Poker Online

For most people getting a regular game of poker can be difficult. Some may find it impossible whilst others might only get the occasional game here and there. This is one of the reasons why online poker is hugely popular now. Most poker sites have thousands online at the same time.
  • Poker Software - All poker sites let you download their software for free. The size of the software file is usually between 3 and 6 meg though obviously this will steadily increase over time as internet connections get better. There is little to split the poker sites software apart. They are all very similar and have around 10 seats at the table so its really just your own preference.
  • Play Money - All online poker sites also offer what is known as 'play money'. After you download their software (its free!) you can start playing right away with 'play chips'. Play money is a great way to improve your hold em.
  • Free Roll Tournaments - For beginners and all us cheapskates, freeroll tournaments are a godsend. Freeroll tournaments are free to enter but the winners (say top 20 or 40) get cash or a ticket to a bigger tournament.
Poker Room was launched way back in 1999. They have freerolls twice a day and their poker rooms are always very busy so its easy to find a suitable game.
