Making Money Through Internet Online Poker

Despite the many websites designed to grab your attention with moneymaking schemes, there are those who seem solid enough. Websites who provide the basic “buy and sell” principle have flourished. Look at Ebay. Another crazy website that has made lots of money is the free, community reliant Wikipedia.

The one true thing that makes money on the World Wide Web is Internet online poker. It is our love affair with gambling that continues to rake in the money for us (some of the time) and the online casino house (most of the time).

What is Internet online poker? Well, it’s basically poker without having to travel all the way to Vegas. There are no walls, no bouncers and no visible distractions in this world. Internet online poker is poker played right in your homes, with real money.

You see, playing poker online is not a new concept. It is just another vehicle for the sport of poker to attract new players into the game. That’s the appeal of playing poker with your computer to the younger generation: easy access to the game and they can learn the game by themselves through free tutorials for online poker sites.

Since online poker is like the real-life poker, the old patrons of casino houses can play alongside the computer techies. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Playing Texas Hold Em on Internet poker rooms is as hip and popular today as it was years ago.

Now the next question is how will Internet online poker make me enough money? The answer is simple, by playing various poker games online. Don’t worry. This is not a scam. You can really double your earnings by playing Internet online poker rather than heading off to the “brick and mortar casino” houses.

Here’s the trick. Internet online poker is played the same way as any regular poker except now you are allowed to play multiple tables. The key to increase your winning is by betting on a low limit. While playing poker in a casino can only allow you to play in one table, playing online poker takes away the physical barrier and gives you the option to view three to ten games simultaneous in one screen.

There are no secrets to it. Just play smart and you will be sure to double your winnings by the time the online poker tournament is over. That is, unless lady Luck decides to pass you by.

Another advantage of playing Internet online poker is the increase in the number of hands you can play. The usual casino house had a dealer and could only play 30 hands per hour. When you remove the human weakness from the equation and add in technology, there is a dramatic increase in the number of hands played. An Internet online poker game can deal 60 to 80 hands per hour!

This is basically the gambler’s dream come true. Internet online poker is user-friendly, it’s also a professional’s recruitment arena. How did that happen? Well, every year online poker rooms hold their annual tournaments called satellites. And instead of just winning money, the winners can get an entry to real-life poker tournaments and play in the World Series of Poker Tournament.

So far there have been two recorded winners of the World Series of Poker Tournament who gained entry by playing Internet online poker. Chris Moneymaker (2003) won the main event and caused a sensation within the poker world. Then another Internet online poker player, Greg “Fossilman” Raymer, followed Chris’ footsteps when he won the next year’s World Series of Poker.

It’s great that by playing poker online, you can earn money and have a chance at making it to the real-life poker tournaments. But all of this is not without a sacrifice. You will be asked to make an investment, especially for the Internet online poker tournaments where an entry fee and built-in fee is required. You can also get hooked on so much Internet online poker that real things in your life are beings to suffer like relationships and career.

Remember, playing poker online is fun but don’t let it run your life.

Making Money at Online Poker With a Bot

Online poker is a billion dollar business. The thrill of sitting at home and playing poker has become an everyday event for millions of people all over the world. The World Poker Tour and similar tournaments have made people rich playing poker and they opened the door for online poker sites to start their own version of poker tournaments. Beginners, as well as seasoned players are spending money and a lot of time to win jackpots worth millions.

Poker playing is a combination of skill, focus and intuition, blended with an initial stake and a desire to win. Age, race, education and economic status are not as important as taking the first step and learning how to play the game the right way. Thanks to relatively new poker technology any player can become a seasoned winning veteran quickly by purchasing software called a poker robot, which is better known as a poker bot. The poker bot hooks up to any online poker site and is programmed to bet, raise, call, bluff or fold at the appropriate time during a game. The player can adjust the program to suit playing styles and the style of other players. Everything a player needs has been programmed into the bot, all the player needs to do is pick the online site and start winning.

Winning is not guaranteed by poker bot companies, although some poker bot makers strongly advertise their winning capabilities. Poker bots are legal, but there are some poker sites that don’t allow players to use them. If a poker bot is detected on a site that does not allow their use, the site will confiscate all winnings, as well as any money deposited in the account and will ban the player from the site There are new poker sites popping up daily and many of them condone the use of bots and even pay companies a commission to sell them to players. Some poker sites use poker bots to keep the tables in play during slow times or to fill a table when there are just a couple of real players playing.

Most poker players who invest in a poker bot want to win and make money. Marketing companies that sell bots claim a player can go from rags to riches using a poker bot, but most of the inexpensive bots on the market are not worth the investment. In order to find the right bot to win money, the first step is to do some research. All poker bots are not created equal, after all, they are software programs and they are only as good as the information that was used to program them. Most programmers understand the game, but if they knew how to win big money consistently, they would be playing, not building programs. There are other programs that are worth the investment because they have been designed by groups of University students who have share knowledge about different aspects of the game. Those groups, as well as others are creating great poker bots that keep getting better every year. Poker bots are not far behind new backgammon and chess bots that are designed to win every game and are almost unbeatable.

Poker bots that think and reason have not been created yet, but a big advantage of a poker bot is it can not be intimidated. Players will back off from aggressive players, bots will not. The good poker bots are programmed to do whatever it takes to win. In order to win money using a poker bot, a player must be able to identify where and who to play. Veteran players and big money games are use to poker bots and can hold there own playing against them. Low limit games and new players don’t have the experience or the focus to play against a poker bot and that is where a player has the best chance of winning consistently.

It’s better to win 10 small pots of $20 over an extended period of play than it is to play in a big game. Winning small pots on a daily basis in low limit games is the best strategy when using a bot, especially if you’re new to a site or have just started to play. As long as a poker bot is not undermining the confidence of other players or winning becomes too obvious and causes the site to investigate, a player can develop a money making strategy using a bot. In fact if a player finds four or five low limit games on different online sites, the bot can play for a good portion of each day and the winnings increase substantially.

People are winning big when they develop a system that works for them. Any player can win money consistently using a poker bot if a strategy is developed that contains research, patience, knowledge and a strong desire to win. Poker bots are changing the way poker is being played on online poker sites. It’s not people vs people vs computer anymore, it’s computer vs computer vs people and it may even come down to computer vs computers unless the online sites develop new guidelines, terms and conditions. Until that happens the poker bot is man’s new best poker friend and winning partner.

Reading Poker Tells – Ten Ways to Read an Opponent and Make More Money

If you learn the art of reading poker tells, you can not only watch for the habits and tics in your opponents, but also watch your own behavior to make sure your body language isn’t telling all your secrets.

A poker “tell” is a mannerism or a physical action that a poker player makes during the play of his or her hand. The tell can be either verbal or nonverbal and it can be either made on purpose or unconsciously. This kind of behavior or habit gives (or tells) you information about the other players’ hands.

Many poker players pay little or no attention to their opponents’ actions at the table. This is not the way to play winning poker. Mike Caro, a leading authority on poker, says, “You will make more money from your opponent’s mistakes than you will from your own fancy play. Therefore, in order to be successful, you will need to study and evaluate your opponents at the table.” You can’t capitalize on mistakes if you are not aware of which players are making them!

Here are some general guidelines for reading poker tells:

Pretending To Have A Weak Or Strong Hand – As a general rule, when a player acts strong, he’s probably weak and when a player acts weak, he’s probably got a really strong hand. Watch out for the players who overact during the betting process.

Physical Indications – Heart rate and adrenalin are involuntary reactions. If you notice a player’s hands are shaking, a rapid heartbeat in the throat or their chest rapidly rising and falling it probably means they are excited about a big hand.

Changes In Mannerism – A player who sits up straighter, puts on their reading glasses, quickly finishes their drink, or abruptly ends a conversation probably has a good playable hand.

Tries To Intimidate Their Opponent – If a poker player belligerently throws his chips in the direction of a particular player as a dare, he’s usually weak and is trying to intimidate that player into folding the better hand.

The Impatient Players – Impatience is usually a sign of a reasonably good hand. If they intended to fold, they probably wouldn’t care if it took a few extra seconds for the action to come around.

Grabbing For Their Chips – There are two ways to interpret this action so you must be paying attention. If the player is reaching for his chips in an aggressive (whatever you bet, you will be called) manner before you’ve even acted, he is generally faking strength. But if you see a player setting up chips in a thoughtful (how much to bet or raise) passive way before the action gets to him, he might be thinking how much money he can make off of his good hand. This is where your ability at reading poker tells is put to the test.

Shows Signs of Indifference – When a player shrugs and says, “Oh, I guess I’ll call,” they are usually trying to hide a big hand.

Exposing One Of Their Hole Cards – Players who flash or expose one of their hole cards to an opponent or a neighbor, is trying to convince the potential caller that he has a good hand. If his hand were really that good, he’d be very careful to conceal and protect it.

Stop Doing What They Were Doing – Pay attention to the food eaters, the candy sucker, gum chewers and the book readers. When this type of activities stop, you can bet that they have a poker hand that they find favorable.

Body Language And Tics – Some poker players will fold their hands, scratch or rub their face, cover their mouth or any other number of little things that will give you subtle hints about the strength or weakness of their hand.

Although reading poker tells is not 100% reliable, it can be very interesting. Next time you are at the table, see how many poker tells you can pick up from the other players. Just remember that there is always someone else doing the same thing to you!

Poker Knowledge = Poker Skills = Poker Wins.

You can read more of my poker articles at [http://www.pokerplayershouldknow.com/]. This website has poker tips, advice, rules and strategies a poker player should know to learn how to play poker, develop poker skills and win at poker.

I try to write articles that educate the average poker player. When I visit other internet poker sites, they all seem to look alike and have the same information. My goal is to create a blog where poker players can actually learn all aspects about poker (not just the best online poker rooms) and enjoy doing so. I hope you will be entertained and also gain some useful poker knowledge. See you at the poker tables.

I started playing poker when poker wasn’t cool. My family always played card games so poker came naturally. I am not a pro by any means; I’m an average person just like you who likes to play all types of poker; although Texas Hold’em is my favorite. My only “claim to fame” is that I have played for many years and in all kinds of venues. My philosophy is: Poker Knowledge = Poker Skills = Poker Wins. I’ll leave you with this thought, “There are no perfect poker players; only those of us humbled souls who strive to be”.
