5 Reasons Why Online Poker Is Better than "Real Life" Poker

5 Reasons Why Online Poker Is Better than "Real Life" Poker

1. You don't need to do any organizing.
If you are having a poker game round at your house, there is a lot of organizing to be done. You need to make sure you have all the right equipment in place for the game - poker table, poker chips and cards as well as some sort of snacks and nibbles. You might be there for a long time so you need to provide some refreshments for your guests.

2. You don't need to rely on anybody else turning up for the poker game.
Most people have one or two friends who are unreliable. If you play poker online you don't need to rely on everyone turning up at the appointed hour for the home table game. When you play home poker there is always the dread that the phone is going to ring and somebody is going to call off at the last minute. You don't get that with online poker, you just turn up and play against whoever is there.

3. You can play for as long as you want to.
When you play poker on the internet it is up to you how long you play for, you don't need to wait until all your friends have had enough and want to go home. Or if you're the type of poker player who always wants to player on after everyone else is burnt out and ready for bed, you can do so on the internet.

4. You can play any time you choose.
When you are trying to organize a real life poker game, one of the biggest obstacles is getting all of your friends available at the same time. You might need to wait for weeks until they can make it on the same night, people are very busy nowadays and nobody seems to have much spare time any more. But you can have a game of poker Texas Holdem any time of the day or night on many internet poker sites, and games like Omaha and Stud poker are available most of the time too.

5. You can go and do something else instead.
If you want out of the game it is very hard when it is taking place in your house! You might be on a big losing streak or you might be tired or even bored with the company but if the poker game is in your house you'll need to be there until the end.

No-one else can cheat and lean over and look at your cards

Or you can not accidently drop them so everyone sees

What happens if someone else does have a good hand, even if they think they are the weakest they might call if the pot is good enough and the odds aren't too bad.

You wouldn't be laughing then

So what happens if you drop your card on table by mistake do you get to withdraw free of cost or you have to continue playing for the rest of the game ?

If you've misread the cards and made an awful mistake your opponents won't see you going bright red, kicking yourself, or even worse, showing your cards with a big grin on your face only to realise you haven't quite got what you had thought...
