Online poker player concentrating deeply

Most poker players think that looking for and reading tells are only for live poker games.  This article will demonstrate the value of “looking for and reading” tells in online poker games.

The world is fiercely competitive.  Poker players feel the competition all the time.  The same is true for people in business.  Many books and articles have been written recently about what makes a person successful either in business or in poker.

Poker players of different ethnicities

Of all the games that we can play on a computer or mobile device, poker is unique.  It requires sound deductive judgment based on many factors plus sound inductive reasoning based on historical examples.  Poker can raise us up, train us for success in our chosen professions, and give us heightened levels of self-confidence.

Poker is a game in which the fear of loss is always at or just beneath the surface.  Since we can’t eliminate fear, we need to learn to use it to our best advantage.  This can result in causing an opponent to fold a winning hand or can simply allow us to shrug off a bad beat.

Until just recently, which we would date at about the time chubby Chris Moneymaker won the WSOP tournament in 2003, poker still had the image of a saloon game which as often as not was settled with a six-shooter and not just the cards on the table. The image had long outlasted the reality. Suddenly, the image changed.

The poker revolution started with two parallel phenomena: the tremendous win by the amateur Chris Moneymaker in the World Series of Poker in 2003 and the explosion in popularity of televised poker.  The importance of televised poker tournaments cannot be underestimated.

The United States has been a sleeping online poker giant for over a decade as the law that nearly destroyed the online gaming market is under renewed pressure from the states.  Many states are looking to legalize and regulate online gaming and poker.

What Could He Possibly Have?

Every Hand Has Its Own Hidden Secrets

One of the aspects of the poker boom brought on by Chris Moneymaker’s win in 2003 is the great popularity of online video clips from tournaments around the world.  The hands presented there are extremely informative and well worth the time you might spend studying them.

Online Poker is a boon to state coffers

Poker Online Can Be a Boon to States

In May 2018, the United States Supreme Court threw out a law from 1992 that had made sports betting illegal in 46 of the 50 states.  Since then, many advocates of legal online poker and gaming have renewed efforts to achieve that goal.  Still, the opposition remains strong as well.

Stunning Saga of Nuns Gone Wild

Two nuns in Los Angeles stole about $500,000 from their church school to pay for gambling trips to Las Vegas.  The story has aspects in the area of responsible gaming.  By its nature, poker lends itself to responsible gaming more than other casino games.

More and more people are playing online poker.

Poker will enter a new "Golden Era" as online poker becomes legal in many places where it has not been legal. The United States will lead the way. The fifty states and their 330 million citizens await new laws that will make online poker legal.
