10 Tips for Playing Poker Online

Online poker has been around forever, but even today online poker games strip away the most interesting, the most valuable and the most entertaining part of sitting at a poker table: the people. The key difference between logging into your favorite poker app and sitting at a table with friends is that one of them focuses on the cards and the other focuses on the game. Think about it, in online poker you're left with your hole cards, the stacks, and the betting history of your opponent...and nothing else. Adding live streaming video to your online poker experience brings you back to the table and the live poker experience you love.
