Poker is an immensely popular card game that is known worldwide, it has a large following and there are many games in the poker family to choose from. Many people have individual preferences when it comes to playing poker, which is the most exciting fun to play, which game they are best at and which games give you the best odds and highest wins etc.
There are many different reasons why people enjoy playing poker. Playing poker for fun is a great way to learn the game and improve your skills, however because the other players are also playing for fun the game might not reflect the true choices a person may make when playing for real money. An example of this is, say a player was holding a pair of two’s and the betting had been taken to the table limit, because the player has no real money to lose they might just say “what the hey” and gamble anyway. However if the same player was playing in a real money poker game with the money to lose the player would most certainly think twice about his next move. Because people are more willing to bet with free chips the game is considerably different, players will often stay in the pot until the final river card. Real money poker games are on the other hand completely different as players are playing to win and not just for the fun of it.
Some view gambling online as inferior for them it doesn’t compare to playing in a real game and playing for fun isn’t the same as playing for real money even small amounts. I think as long as you’re having fun it doesn’t matter – Everybody’s different.
