Tips for Playing Real Money Poker

Most players begin their online poker lives on the play money tables, where they can learn the basics of the game without running the risk of going broke. While these tables can be a lot of fun - and a great way to learn - there comes a point in every gamer's life when they need to step up to the plate and try their hand at poker with real money. This step can be intimidating to say the least, but there's no denying the thrill that comes with competing against a table of players willing to risk their own money to hit it big. If you've tired of playing for fake chips and are ready to step up to the big leagues, here are a few hints for transitioning to real money poker.

Start Out Small
When you first take the plunge into live poker, whether it be at the cash tables or a poker tournament, the first thing you'll want to do is establish a bankroll. As we have discussed previously, it is important that you know how to manage your bankroll, to know how much money you are playing with at all times. When you're first starting out, you'll want to stick to tables and tournaments with smaller blinds or sit-and-go's with low buy-ins. You may have run roughshod over the competition on the play money tables, but things are different in real money poker, and you'll want to make your money last. Speaking of which…

Be Patient
Whether you're a naturally aggressive player or like to hang back and observe, if you're just moving up from the play money tables, you'll have to relearn how people play. With nothing to lose except some virtual chips, many players treat the play money tables as an excuse to be reckless with their betting. It's not unusual to see one (or more) person go all in on the first hand, regardless of hand strength, because there is no real risk involved. This will change at the real money tables, as players will (mostly) play a bit smarter and more conservatively when actual money is on the line. That's not to say you won't still find loose or aggressive players - particularly at the cheaper real money poker tables - but it does mean you'll have more leeway to splash around and see a few flops without worrying about committing a large portion of your stack.

Prepare For the Worst
Though you should approach the table with confidence and a willingness to take a chance, you'll definitely want to prepare yourself for your first big loss. Poker is primarily a game of skill, but there's no denying the pull that the luck of the draw has on players' fates. As such, even the best player will taste bitter defeat at some point - and the first big loss when playing poker with real money can be a hard pill to swallow. This is one of the reasons why we stress the importance of never playing with your entire bankroll. No limit hold’em can result in costly mistakes, as all it takes is one bad beat to wipe you out entirely, so set a limit and stick with it. Otherwise, you could wind up on the rail without a cent to your name.

Find the Right Table for You
If you've been playing online poker for a while, you're no doubt familiar with the many table variations that exist at virtual card rooms like Titan Poker. From limit to no-limit, high-speed to short-hand, there are a number of ways to play the game at any time, and you'll need to find the variety that best fits your playing style. Each variation has its own strengths and weaknesses, so be sure to sample more than one style and make a note of how you like to play, as being comfortable at the real money poker table is the best way to win. Also realize that many online card rooms will allow you to sit at more than one table at a time, so hitting more than one high-speed table may not be the best choice if you find that your attention often wanders elsewhere. Which brings up one final point…

Watch Your Spending
Many of the top professionals in online poker will play multiple tables at any given time to maximize the number of hands they see and ultimately set themselves up to win more. While you might be tempted to try this strategy for yourself, be sure to keep an eye on your money. Playing four tables means four sets of blinds/antes to call, up to 32 opponents and countless hand variations you may be too distracted to deal with. As such, it's best to stick with one table until you've got your game - and your bankroll - under control. Play poker real money games only if you can afford them.
