Choose Online Poker over Land-based Poker

More people are now into online poker than in land-based poker. Online poker has become the flavour of the season exceeding the craze over land-based games of poker. Why it is that more people are slowly shifting to online poker and stopped parking at land-based casinos for a poker game? There are a lot of reasons for this - that includes convenience among others.

If you have tried playing poker online, you would say that playing online is super fast than you when you sit down in any of the poker rooms in the casino. The super fast process of the game allows you to play two games, perhaps, in an hour when you normally play a game for two hours. You enjoy more games in lesser time.

Your local casino may have its opening and closing times but online poker is available 24 hours a day for the whole week - even Sundays and holidays. That means you can play whenever you want to not minding it is seven in the morning on St. Patrick's Day.

Playing online is also inexpensive. You do not need to spend money on travel to visit the nearest casino. Also the rake in online poker rooms are five percent of each pot while in land-based casino the rake is ten percent per pot and so playing online poker saves you more on your betting money.

Online poker affords you to play in two different poker rooms at the same time. It gives you more flexibility in choosing the placing you want to play. Being in two poker rooms at the same time is impossible in land-based poker rooms.

Still another reason while people choose online poker over land-based poker is the absence of tell signs. In online poker, you will only see an avatar or computer graphics of your opponent. That way, you will concentrate on your betting and time rather than on judging facial expressions and/or body movements to calculate your edge in the game. If you are not good at spotting tell signs - which is a very vital skill in land-based poker - then you can eliminate that obstacle by playing poker online.

And so why is it the more people like online poker over land-based poker? Online poker is convenient, super fast, always available, cheap and flexible. Well, that should be enough reason you should go into online poker is you haven't tried it yet.
