Why Play Online

Advantages of Online Poker

Now more than ever, people are choosing to take part in online poker instead of going to a casino. One of the major reasons is because visiting an online poker site is far easier and handier than going to a live casino. Imagine, instead of having to travel outside of your home to a busy, noisy casino, you can relax and experience just as much poker enjoyment in the virtual world with a simple click of your mouse.

Here are just a few main highlights of the advantages of online poker:
  • You can play at any time of the day or night from the comfort of your own home or place of choosing at your convenience.
  • You can play against players from all over the world.
  • You can play for fun.
  • You can use special strategy tools to assist you when you play.
  • You don't have to worry about the other opponents seeing your expression or hearing your comments during a hand.
To further appreciate the advantages of playing online, we'll take a closer look at the differences between live and online poker. Following are some notable distinctions:

Physical Vs. Virtual

Perhaps the single most obvious difference between live and online poker is the fact that at a live poker table, players are physically present and can therefore see the moves of their opponents, their emotions, as well as their reactions. This makes playing live poker far more challenging than online, because players always need to be conscious of what their opponents are doing, and if they are being watched. Moreover players need to have control over their body language, emotions and expressions, as sudden reactions or nervous gestures or movements can often be a dead giveaway to an experienced player.
