Online poker has seen a surge of popularity in recent years, mainly because it’s available to play day or night and comes with a variety of options traditional casinos simply don’t offer.
For starters, many sites allow you to play poker for free. Others will match a certain percentage above your initial deposit. This is great for those wanting to play purely for entertainment, or brush up on their skills, without worrying about losing too much money.
Avoid Beginner Pitfalls
You should always start with low-stakes poker. This will allow you to familiarize yourself with the game, which is slightly different from casino poker. Online gaming has a different nuance to it, which is best figured out from experience.
Many people that play poker in USA online are avid players so they tend to play more than one game at once. This is a tactic called multi-tabling and professionals even use it in live tournaments, but it’s risky for the novice. Starting out, it’s important to play one table at a time until you experience consistent wins.
Create the Right Gaming Environment
Playing online poker in the middle of the family room can pose many distractions, which may cause you to lose money if you lose focus. Treat online poker like traditional casino poker. Sit at a desk in a supportive chair, preferably in a closed office away from distractions.
If you do get to the point where you want to try your hand at multi-tabling, it’s important to have a high-resolution monitor, an ergonomic mouse, and even a wrist pad. More than just being physically comfortable, these considerations will help you avoid eyestrain and pain from prolonged playing.
You can’t expect to win right off the bat. Poker takes practice and persistence, so try not to give up too easily. There have been many reports of online poker players working their way up to multi-tabling, high stakes games, and massive payoffs. Although rare, none of these players would have gotten there had they not been determined to be the best player they could possibly be.
Above all else, have fun. Online poker may provide a few payoffs here and there, but it’s best experienced as an exciting form of online entertainment.

The holidays are here, and for many people this is the best time of the year. You get together with friends and family, eat home cooked food, enjoy some cocktails and watch plenty of football.
But for many people, this time of the year can be a mini nightmare if you have one of those dysfunctional families, and the Wall Street Journal has a funny and frankly useful guide to surviving these get togethers. They call it “Dysfunctional Family Bingo” and it’s worth a read. Here are some examples:
All of these are good ideas, but we have some ideas as well. First, if you’re traveling for the holidays and staying with family, make sure to plan some activities that take you out of the house. Go places. See other people. Just don’t spend all your time surrounded by people that will drive you nuts.
Also, plan on some time killers. Bring your iPad so you can catch up on movies, play games, use online time-killers like PartyBingo.com, or read some e-books. Or, make sure you have a deck of cards or even a chess board to kill time.
We also like the divide and conquer strategy mentioned above. Think about that when you’re planning activities. Take your mom to the mall, and your dad to a sports bar. Think about what works well on smaller groups and you’ll save yourself a ton of aggravation.
And finally, buy some good wine, craft beer or smooth Scotch. Anything that will dull the pain!
