Beginner Poker: How to choose the right game?
Poker for beginners has a fundamental decision when it comes to starting your career, and is none other than choosing the right game to start.
You have decided to play poker for the first time after having watched a game on television. Should you go to a casino to play at a cash table or maybe it would be more convenient to access an online poker room and start playing from the comfort of your bedroom?
I think the best option is to start online because you need to play a large number of hands before you feel comfortable and know all the features of the game.
Starting in a casino would only add extra pressure that would prevent you from focusing on what is most important at the beginning, which is nothing more than learning.
What level of bet to choose?
I think there is a very used argument that is to start from the lowest levels and play against all kinds of opponents to go level up but in terms of learning speed to become a great poker player you should know that the higher are the best in the tables where you play, the faster you will learn.
The vast majority of the best online players start playing a new variant of poker at the highest possible levels. They lose a lot of money at first, but they learn a lot faster because of the higher level of the rivals and the greater existing competition.
Tournament Speed: Regular, Turbo, Hyper-turbo, Slow
The slower, the better it is for beginners. When talking about tournaments, the stacks are deeper and more hands can be played against the same group of players, so you can analyze and learn much more.
Satellite tournaments for big tournaments
The satellite tournaments are incredible to offer the possibility to participate in a big tournament and therefore, to increase (with luck, of course) the budget enormously. Although, as we are talking about beginner players and the main thing is learning, I would not recommend this option for them, even knowing that they can have a lot of value.
Which variant to choose?
I think that beginning players should start without any doubt. This variant of poker is the most popular, so it is much easier to find information to improve and it is also the best place to earn money both live and online (leaving aside the High Stakes games), something that does not look like change in the near future.
The basic strategy and the value of the hands is also easier than in other variants, so online playing is the best option to start playing, even if you are interested in other variants as they will help you understand the game in yes and it will be much easier to move to other games from there than to start from scratch (without any experience in poker) in them.
