"Texas poker can be learned in 5 minutes, but it takes a lifetime to master." (Doyle Brunson). At the same time, here are some tips for getting started with the Internet correctly.
Our 5 tips for getting started with online poker:
1/ Choose your online poker room
Even if it seems obvious, you must choose the right online poker room: it must compulsorily stimulate your happiness, but it must also be ergonomic for you, allowing you to choose your language, preferences, etc. . Tip: Before you decide to choose a room, please don't hesitate to try a few rooms in free mode.
2 / Choose your table / opponent
Again, this advice may seem obvious to some people, but you should avoid sitting with opponents who play better than you. Of course, if your performance is worse than others, then you will usually be the biggest loser at the table.

3/Avoid excessive restrictions
Likewise, when starting an online poker game, be sure to pay attention to your own funds and use your limits wisely.

5 / Accept the game speed
In online poker, strokes will soon follow each other. If you have worked hard before, you may find the pace is different. Tip: First practice in demo mode until you feel comfortable and the tone is sufficient for real-time playback.
