Choosing an Online Poker Site

Online poker is a great way to play the game you love without ever having to leave home. Its ubiquity allows players to play when it is convenient for them and to find games that fit their skill levels. Whether you are a newbie or an experienced player, you will want to be sure that the software runs smoothly and is user friendly. The more comfortable you are with the software, the more likely you are to perform well.

The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing an online poker site is to make sure that you choose one that offers the games you enjoy playing. This includes Texas hold’em, Omaha, and stud games as well as a variety of different tournaments. You will also want to find a site that offers rakebacks, which can be substantial and help you break even.

There was a time when the distinction between live and online poker players was quite stark and many pros belonged to one group or another and largely ignored the other. Today, however, there is more and more overlap and top players of all levels play both live and online poker.

Real money online poker is currently legal in six states including Delaware, Michigan, Nevada, West Virginia and New Jersey as well as a number of tribal casinos and card rooms. The addition of Pennsylvania in 2023 and Kentucky’s potential entry into the iGaming market in 2022 would significantly expand the available player pool and make online poker more attractive to operators.
