How to get paid playing online poker for FREE!
Play Free Poker: Poker on TV is almost the
most stimulating game to watch. Many thousands of regular people started
watching Texas Hold'em tournaments on television turning them into online poker
addicts. Who can blame them? Poker is probably the best card game invented since
the 1820's. After many people see the many ups and downs, thrills and spills,
and crazy poker games on TV,
texas hold'em poker has never been bigger.
So...you are dying to play poker right!? There are two basic
options when deciding to play poker, either playing with your good ole buddies
around a smoke filled room, drinking your ass off or play online poker against
the millions of other online poker room players. To me, both of these options
sound extremely fun. With online poker you have the advantage of going at your
own pace and playing without having to use poker faces, so it is easier to earn
alot more money, if you have patience and you know what your doing.
Playing poker at home face to face with some friends is one of
the best experiences anyone can have. There is nothing like getting your best
friends together, break out the beer and play a few hours of poker. The problem
with this is it is hard to get all your friends to come over all the time,
everyone is so busy now a days. Not to mention, some of your comrades might just
have a few dollars to risk, while your other friends are ready to put up their
mortgage. Where is the happy medium? Who wants to play poker for free and not
have a chance at winning any cash anyhow?
Of course, on the other hand,
Internet poker is live, instant,
and booming. You will never have a hard time finding a game of poker online that
suits your pocket book. Also, I don't think I have ever seen a poker site that
didn't offer free players the opportunity to play the game without risking any
money. This allows you to build your confidence and understand the game before
taking any poker risk at all, which is alot better than watching it on TV.
So if you have decided to play poker online, what are the
options you now have? Well these are split into three basic categories, money
games where you play for cash, play money games where you can practice for free,
and a third type of game – the
poker freeroll. A freeroll is a sort of hybrid
between cash games and play money games and in fact is the best of both worlds.
In freerolls, your entry to the game is literally free, you do
not have to pay anything (although you will be required to complete a simple
form to become a member of the poker room). The big bonus however is that if you
win the tournament or are placed highly, you will win an actual cash prize.
These freeroll tournaments are of course very popular, anywhere
offering something for nothing usually is. But if you get in early you will be
able to sign up for the freeroll tournament and play for real money – without
risking a penny of your own money.
