Poker Online is a game where players bet against each other for money. Players can play a variety of different poker games such as Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo and more. When a player plays poker online, they can also choose to play in tournaments or cash games. Players can deposit funds using a credit card and withdraw their winnings by Bitcoin, e-wallet or even a check by courier.
While the rules of poker remain the same whether played at home or a casino, online poker requires a different skill set that relies on monitoring an opponent’s betting patterns instead of reading physical tells. Fortunately, new and casual players can overcome this learning curve much faster and for less money than they would at a live casino.
Online poker first took off in the United States after a Tennessee accountant aptly named Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2003. This ushered in the “poker boom” and fueled an unregulated market that was bound to experience some setbacks.
