Playing Online Poker Comes in Many Variations

Written By Janice Doughtrey

If you’re an avid poker player, a beginner testing the water, or even if you’re just an average person, playing occasionally as a hobby you have to admit that the online forum provides and incredible range of ways to play poker. There are tournaments you can enter, there are singe player and multi player games, and there are even live table games too. And let’s not forget all the different variations on this popular game there are too!

Tournaments are a great way to play poker online and there are so many to choose from because online casinos aren’t limited to physical space! Freeroll tournaments are a great place for any new poker player to start because they can start playing poker and usually only need to spend some or sometimes none of their own money. Online freeroll tournaments can sometimes require other types of fees to play like depositing money into your account. Most freerolls will have real money prizes, can award points, merchandise and even sometimes entries into other tournaments. Freerolls can also be used as qualifiers for bigger tournaments too.

Satellite tournaments are also fun to play online because you can win yourself entry into bigger money tournaments like the World Series of Poker Main Event. Satellite tournaments act like feeder tournaments and usually (if won) will win you the buy-in for the bigger tournament. And even though these types of tournaments usually require an entry fee, they offer players a nicer alternative then laying down thousands of dollars on the big event buy-in.

And let’s not forget to mention all the different great types of poker games you can play online (aside from the standard Texas/Omaha Hold’em style games usually played in the above mentioned tournaments). There’s Caribbean Stud poker, Video Poker, Three Card Poker, Let it Ride, Pai Gow and more! Each game comes with different rules, different odds and a different kind of skill and strategy required to play. In short, an online poker player will never get bored!
