Online Poker Guide & Poker Room Reviews

Online Poker can now be played at numerous gambling portals that are fully licensed to offer real cash poker games. The most popular version of poker which is available at every online poker site is Texas Hold'em, but other versions such as Razz, Stud and Omaha are also now widely available in the real cash mode.

Most poker sites today have a wide range of ring games (cash tables) for you to sit down at and most poker tables generally cater for low rollers, high rollers and all of the players in between. This means that blinds can start from as little as $/€/£0.01 / $/€/£0.02 up to in some cases as much as $/€/£200 / $/€/£400 (small blind/big blind). There are normally plenty of adjustable filters that can help you to find a suitable table in no time at all.

If you prefer not to play on the cash tables, you can enter into Sit 'n Go's, Multi-Table Tournaments (MTT's) or Scheduled Tournaments, all of which are now widely available. In the Sit 'n go's, MTT's and other similar events, you only have to pay the cost of the buy-in (entrance fee) and you will be given X amount of chips to play the tournament. These poker tourneys will have a certain amount of paid positions and they could last for as little as five minutes or they could go on for five or more hours.
