Poker is a sport that is not only unique in the universe of table games, but is unique to the casino culture as well. With that in mind, there are a few things you should remember when entering a casino and sitting down to play Texas Hold’em, Omaha poker, or any other variation of the game.
1.First of all, when playing poker the house is cut completely out of the competitive mix. Unlike Blackjack and other table game, the odds are not skewed in favor of the house and your only worry is the rest of the opponents at the table. While this may not give a poker player a competitive advantage, it does give gambling enthusiasts a reason to give up other games in favor of poker.
2.At many casinos the drinks are free to poker players (and everyone else). Alcohol dulls the senses and can have a negative impact on your game. Players should avoid making drinking an integral part of their game. Just because a waitress is willing to fetch you a drink, it doesn’t mean you have to take it.
3.Playing poker in a casino is much different than playing online poker. One of the biggest differences is the lack of turnover at the tables. This means they group you start playing with will be largely intact several hours later. Players in a casino are going to have to learn to change their game up within a long session. If not, your opponents will figure you out.
4.Finally, online players are used to a hyper-aggressive environment. This is not the style that dominates most casino poker tables. Aggressive play may bring short term success, but those who do not tighten up will wind up giving away all their chips.
Those are just a few poker tips to remember when entering a casino to play some Texas Hold’em.
