Which Poker Room should you choose?

The first thing you should consider when starting to play poker is which poker room you should choose. Even though many of them share the same network they can differ a bit. The iGaming Company you choose can be more or less safe and provide different types of campaigns and bonuses. I’m a member at several poker rooms and what I do is that I never sign up at a poker room I haven’t heard about. A good reputation is really important in this business. I google a bit and look at different forums to see what players have to say about the poker room I’m interested in. If they have bad things to say or if they only have good things to say about the poker room. Most of the poker rooms that are famous are really good ones, otherwise they wouldn’t stand out in a competitive business.

One thing I consider is about the payment. How long does it take for the company to fix the payout? That’s interesting, because you really want your winnings as quick as possible, but sometimes it can take several days before you see them in you bank account.

I also consider the campaigns, if they can provide a lot of bonuses, big tournaments, satellites to live tournaments etc. That’s important to me.

Also, you should take a look what games they offer, what formats, stakes, buy-ins etc. I guess to many this is the most crucial part when it comes to choose on online poker room. It can also be of significance what kind of players you will meet, if you only meet amateurs or professionals. Like Unibet for instance, when they modernized their poker room, they were very clear that their target were hobby players. While I guess you will find more professional players at the world largest poker room, PokerStars. I am member on both these poker rooms and when I play it depends on my mood which I choose that day. Or if there are any fun tournaments scheduled :)

I will also recommend you to look for poker guides that specializes on writing reviews and will therefor check up the poker room in detail. Here you can read about different poker rooms and compare them.

It’s free to sign up at a poker room, so you can do this before deposit real money to get a good look at the poker room before starting to play.

Depending on where you live, you should also look for the poker room’s license. For example, I live in Sweden where gambling online is legal and if you win in a poker game on an iGaming Company that is licensed within the European Union you don’t have to pay tax for your winnings. This you have to do if the poker room is licensed elsewhere and then you have to keep track in your winnings yourself, which can be a bit tricky.

Well, this is some of the features I think about when choosing a poker room. Do you think differently or have any more tips, please contact me. It would also be interesting to hear which poker room you recommend.

Welcome to High Stakes Poker!

Here we talk about everything that relates to poker High Stakes Poker. It can be about the television-show, about the feeling when winning a poker game, what to think about when playing high stakes poker and the feeling of loosing in high stakes poker. I will talk about some of my favorite poker players which aren’t afraid of playing high stakes poker! Players like Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth and Viktor Blom are among my favorites.

You can play high stakes poker online or in a live casino. All you need is to have a lot of cash in hand… For example, in the television show High Stakes Poker the minimum cash buy in were $100 000 but were later raised to $500 000.

I will also discuss some of the worlds largest tournaments. Like The Big One for One Drop which has a $1 000 000 buy in. In 2012 the tournament was won by Antonio Esfandiari, who then got the largest cash prize in the history of poker. He won $18 346 673, an amount you can only dream of! The tournament is played every second year during World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. During this tournament poker players from all around the world gathers in Las Vegas to prove their skill. I would really like to go there some day. Main Event costs $10 000, so perhaps one day I can fulfill my dream of playing there.

Poker is a game of skill but also a bit of luck. There are a lot of books to improve your game and also television shows. Poker Players love to share their knowledge for a bit of extra cash. One of my favorite shows are Poker After Dark and I usually follow tournaments all around the world live stream. It’s interesting to analyze the game when you see the hole cards.
