An Introduction to Poker Games
Life before online poker and life post-flop. Ask any poker player, and these divisions become far simpler – once the poker bug has bitten it becomes hard to recall what it was you actually did in the days before you became aware of the Holy Trinity of the flop, turn and river. It’s a bit like someone trying to remember the distant days when they quite happily watched snooker on a black-and-white television set – it wasn’t a problem at the time, but the thought of it now sends shudders down the spine.
But can a ‘game’ really enrich your life that much? Well, yes it can. Ask the millions of football fans around the globe who watch and play football week in, week out, and see what they have to say about something that’s ‘just a game’. Both football and poker inspire passionate competitiveness and possess a healthy social side, but as a poker aficionado I’d say there are some major differences, dare I say advantages, that poker has compared to footy.
For one, the likelihood of you pulling on a shirt to have a kick-around with Becks and Rooney is as remote as Trinidad and Tobago lifting the World Cup, yet in poker games you can sit down to face world champions at tournaments all around the world. All it takes to have a tilt at beating the best is a single victory in one of the many online poker tournaments.
What’s more, if you play poker games, there are life-changing piles of cash to be won for free. A great example of which is the Ladbrokes Poker Million winner Tony Jones who swiped $1,000,000 from under the noses of some of the world’s top poker pros.
If you’ve never picked up a deck of cards, then Ladbrokes Poker will put you on the track to winning poker games – with hints, tips and tuition, from the basic mechanics to advanced poker strategies.
If you’re already a dedicated online grinder then we are probably preaching to the converted. But if you’re a Texas Holdem player, it’s high time that you got stuck into Omaha Poker and Stud Poker, too. Let us lead the way…
