Are You Interested In Playing Poker?

Maybe you recently caught a glimpse of the show Celebrity Poker and all it took was one episode and you found yourself hooked. Or maybe, all your friends have been raving about how addictive the game is and how much money they've won. Now you know you're getting a little bit interested, no matter even if you think taht curiosity has indeed started to kill the cat.

But don't worry, with poker, there shall be no senseless animal killing and anyone and anything can examine it to his heart's content. And so, if you're interested in playing poker, here's what you can expect.

Poker Is No Ordinary Game

Most people think that poker is one of the easiest - or maybe even the silliest - card games because you're only holding two cards in your hand so how hard can it be? And it seems silly because with just two cards, people actually expect you to be able to deduce whether you've got a good poker hand or not - and isn't that silly?

We're not all born with ESP here! But ladies and gentlemen, those are misassumptions - although the general rules for poker are quite easy to understand, to be able to win not just once but consecutively, you need to have a variety of mental strategies to see you through. Michael Jordan said that basketball is more of a mental rather than a physical game, didn't he? Well, I'm here to tell you that poker is more of a mental game, too - rather than one that simply deals with random luck.

You Can Earn Money Playing Poker

Another erroneous belief most people have is that since poker is above all, a card game. Since it's mostly played in casinos, it's very much a vice and can be the reason why your money's flowing out like water. Well, that's where they're wrong again! It's very easy to earn money playing poker.

All you need is to improve your playing style and money management. Yes, there's such a thing as money management in poker. Lastly, you need self-control. If you have that, then you'll know when it's time to stop playing poker and when it's okay to press your luck some more.

Poker Is Fun

If you think poker is a very serious game, you're partially right. But not all serious things are lacking in pleasure, you know. Take the game of chess, for example. It seems boring at first glance but when you learn how to play the game, it gets addictive. And that's how it is with poker as well.
