In an article published in USAToday, Borgata talks about the various advantages of playing poker games online.
Playing poker at a live poker room is very distracting, especially if one is playing for a living. If players really want to concentrate on their game, online poker is the best option for them. They can play in peace without distractions from people who generally crowd a live poker room. In addition, online poker is convenient. As long as players have a good mobile device or a computer with excellent Internet connection, they can play from any location under the sun.
Online poker players need never forget the mistakes of their past and valuable lessons learned as they can keep a note of their hand history. They can even replay their hands to find out what went wrong.
Live poker rooms are the worst places on earth to learn the game of poker. If players want to learn how to play, they must register at an online poker room, which allows them to play for free, make as many mistakes as they like, and learn without risking their hard-earned cash.
Live poker is not anonymous, but online poker is. It gives beginners a chance to build up a new poker identity and avoid being taken advantage of especially during those days of learning how to play poker.
While playing online poker, players are in full control. They do not have to wait for a waitress to take their orders. They can just fix their own snacks and get their own drinks. They can even watch TV as they play and get as comfortable as they can.
Live poker rooms do not allow players to play several poker games at a time, but online poker rooms make this possible. As long as players have the self-confidence and expertise and a good Internet connection, they can play as many games as they can.
If a player wins a poker tournament in a live poker room, he/she will not be able to celebrate the way he/she would like to. For instance, capturing the great moment on camera will be impossible. But online poker players are free to grab a screen shot of the cards and celebrate as much as they like.
Playing online poker is comfortable. Players do not have to get dressed and travel a long distance. While there are no free drinks, players can claim great bonuses and rewards for loyalty.
