We would like to thank you for spending time to read our guide for beginners. Below, we list the main concepts.
Decide on poker room to play
Make sure that your country is not in the list of prohibited by the rules of the site, and the poker room has a good reputation. Make sure that there are enough tables of your chosen discipline and stake level in the lobby.
Check the VIP program of selected poker room
If you plan to play a long time on one poker site, rakeback and first deposit bonus will give you a good amount of money at long distances. For some disciplines rakeback is the bigger part of the total profit.
Decide on a basic set of software, and do not forget to take care about security.
Decide on program - tracker that suits better for you. Then consider what additional programs or services at the moment will give you the maximum benefit?
Find out for yourself what other software you may need.
Cash players will probably prefer a good program to do table selecting, and the Sit’n’Go players will want something like SNGWizard.
Look for useful poker coaching site.
Subscribe for some materials, constantly learn, develop your poker skills. Sign up for at least one poker forum (preferably on several). Do not waste your time looking at complaints and bad beats, look for useful threads and articles that can help you improve your game. Try to communicate with the players you respect.
And more important - have fun playing!
Poker is a game of skill and you should know how to enjoy it.
