With the vast expansion of the internet in recent years, there has been an equally large growth in the online gaming industry. Hundreds of new people sign up to play games online everyday. One of the most popular games in this upcoming technological trend is poker. Fans of Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Stud, Razz and much more can simply log in to there favorite site and play against people from around the world.
It's quickly becoming one of the best ways to earn a little money and have fun online.

The process is quite simple. Go online to one of the poker sites and download the software to play. The most popular sites are free to use and available twenty four hours a day. Then create an account to manage chip/money earnings. Each site starts the players off with around 1000 play chips that they can use in online tournaments or tables. It is possible to play for real money as well by making a deposit from a credit card or bank account. After that, the earnings are all up to the skill and luck of the player.

There are some things to watch for though when playing online. Although each site is designed to simulate actual play, the system isn't entirely precise. It's impossible for a computer to be completely random because it's based on equations and technologies that are always exact. As a result, online games don't always come out with fair results because the computer for one reason or another will favor a player with a larger chip stack or more aggressive style because they give the impression that they have a good hand. This doesn't always happen, but it is something to be aware about.

Another issue involved with online poker is that it's a lot harder to read the players. There is no face to face interaction; rather, each transaction is carried out between one online static face and another. Although betting styles and time taken to make decisions do have some telling qualities about them, the key reads of body language and facial expressions are lost over the internet. This is why some of the best players online usually do badly in face to face play because they aren't used to being read by other people.

Simply put, there is no way to fully create the experience of live poker on the computer. Though online poker sites have gotten close, they will never capture the intensity and focus involved to play against people face to face. Playing online is simple, fast, and fun, but it isn't identical to live play. Don't be scared to play online though just because it has some glitches. It's still one of the most fun activities that someone can experience behind a computer screen.

    I also find the online poker experience to be slightly lacking in some parts. Especially since you can go down to a local poker room and sit and talk with fellow players. It brings a certain aspect to the game that cant be reproduced online.
