We are Geraldine, John, Marybelle and Sanjay. After playing online poker for the last two years, we came up with the idea of writing about our experiences to help other players do well too. If you wish to read more about us, read below or pick from these recommended poker rooms to play:

This is an experiment in honesty, clarity and ingenous creativity, that hopes to light up the secret essence of poker. Playing online at a variety of poker rooms, we found that the content is basically identical. None of that here! So, before we reveal any poker secrets, we will introduce ourselves.

Geraldine

She is studying for her MA's degree in the South of France in Arts. We miss her, and we hope that she will return soon. Geraldine, we miss you at our Saturday night poker games! We are in constant touch and have been playing online at various poker rooms. She is a true man-killer online player, and I hope you don't run into her. By the way, she goes under the name of coolslickcat. Watch Out!

John

Winner to play at the 2005 World Series of Poker, he has amassed an incredible sum of $254,105 playing at Pacific Poker. His fast and sharp thinking has allowed him to compensate for his lack of initial capital to make it right near the cream of poker. If he could only sometimes manage to control his stubborness, he would make millions.

Marybelle

I met her one day at the park as she was trying out some poker moves all alone. Engrossed, we began to talk, and, eventually, landed up in my appartment. We stayed awake the whole night not humping, but playing poker. (I know it sounds funny...). The next day, she introduced us to and we have been hooked ever since.

Sanjay

Thats me - HI !
I wish I could tell you I was a great player and have amassed a huge sum of money playing online. I wish I could tell you that I added a very small sun into my personal casino account and tripled it in to time. I wish I could tell you that all the tips, techniques, strategies and calculations have helped me win constantly. I wish I could, maybe then I wouldn't be creating this site helping Geraldine,John, Marybelle and other such players win money from players like me.

If you do not want to lose like I do - practice and play sharply. And I also have to specify that online gambling isn't for everyone. If you do not frighten easily, if the idea that your actions will decide whether you win or lose and if you can withstand pressure - enter any one of the above poker rooms and begin playing.

I am weak and shiver when playing for money. If you are man enough - take up the challenge and begin making money. (Unfortunately, you will do it on the backs of players like me.)


Playing poker online is like watching a football game! The more you know about it - the more fun you have and the more you win (on the bets you made). We have joined together to help you win more!

If you want to enter, or even taste, the gambling world of online poker, first I would recommend you on learning the rules of the game, before hitting the casinos and poker rooms.

How to Become an Online Poker Player

Poker evolved from different kinds of card games, to the point of becoming one of the well known games in the gambling world. If you want to enter or taste the gambling world of online poker, first I would recommend learning the dry rules of the game. There are 52 cards in the pack, and the ranking of the individual cards, from high to low, is ace, king, queen, jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. There is no ranking between the suits in poker, so for example the king of hearts and the king of spades are equal.

A hand consists of five cards. Poker ranks are always based on five cards only. To play online poker, it is important to understand which hands are better than other hands.

1. Royal Flush

When all five cards form a straight from a ten to an ace and all five cards of the same suit. In poker suit does not matter and pots are split between equally strong hands.

2. Straight Flush

When all five cards are in sequences and of the same suit. Between two straight flushes, the one containing the higher top card is higher.

3. Four of a kind

When four cards are of the same rank. If two players share the same Four of a Kind, the fifth card will decide who wins the pot, the bigger card the better.

4. Full House

When three cards are of the same rank, together with any two cards of the same rank, in a poker game this means it is a full house. When comparing full houses, the rank of the three cards determines which is higher. If the threes of a kind were equal, the rank of the pairs would decide.

5. Flush

When all five cards are of the same suit but are not continuance. The highest card of the five makes out the rank of the flush. When comparing two flushes, the highest card determines which is higher. If the highest cards are equal then the second highest is compared; if those are equal too, then the third highest, and so on.

6. Straight

When all five cards are in sequences but with mixed suits. When comparing two sequences, the one with the higher ranking top card is better. Ace can count high or low in a straight, but not both at once.

7. Three of a Kind

When a player has three cards of the same rank. This combination is also known as Triplets or Trips. When comparing two threes of a kind, the hand in which the three equal cards are of higher rank is better. If you have to compare two threes of a kind where the sets of three are of equal rank, then the higher of the two remaining cards in each hand are compared, and if those are equal, the lower odd card is compared.

8. Two Pairs

A pair in an online poker game is two cards of equal rank. In a hand with two pairs, the two pairs are of different ranks (otherwise you would have four of a kind), and there is an odd card to make the hand up to five cards. When comparing hands with two pairs, the hand with the highest pair wins, irrespective of the rank of the other. If the higher pairs are equal, the lower pairs are compared, if both pairs are the same, the odd cards are compared.

9. Pair

When two cards are of equal rank, and three other cards with different rank from the pair and from each other. When comparing two such hands, the hand with the higher pair is better. If the pairs are equal, compare the highest ranking odd cards from each hand; if these are equal compare the second highest odd card, and if these are equal too, compare the lowest odd cards.

10. High Card

Five cards which do not form any of the combinations listed above. When comparing two such hands, the one with the better highest card wins. If the highest cards are equal the second cards are compared; if they are equal as well the third cards are compared, and so on.

Learn About Online Poker:

Here we provide a brief introduction to the concept of online poker together with several rules, hands and a few popular poker versions. Poker is a microcosm of all we admire about capitalism and democracy. It can be rough-hewn or polished, warm or cold, charitable and caring or hard and impersonal. It is fickle and elusive, but ultimately it is fair, and right and just.

What is Poker?

Poker is a family of card games, almost invariably played as gambling games. Additionally, online poker is a game of chance. However, when you introduce the concept of betting, online poker gains quite a bit of skill and psychology. Online Poker is played with a standard pack of fifty two cards. The cards are ranked from high to low:
  1. Ace
  2. King
  3. Queen
  4. Jack
  5. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2
  6. Ace
There are only four suits:
  1. spades
  2. hearts
  3. diamonds
  4. clubs
However, no suit is higher than another. All online poker hands contain five cards, the highest hand wins. While the game of poker is played in hundreds of variations, most follow the same basic pattern of play.

Community Card Games:

In community card poker games, each player is dealt privately an incomplete hand (hole cards) which is then combined with the community cards to make a complete hand. The set of community cards is called a board, and may be dealt in a simple line or arranged in a special pattern; rules of each poker game determine how the community cards may be combined with each player private poker hand.

Texas Holdem:

The most popular community card game today is probably Texas Holdem (and variants) originating sometime in the 1970s. In home games, it is typical to use an ante, while casinos typically use only blinds for these poker games. Fixed limit games are most common in online poker rooms and casinos, while spread limit games are more common in home poker games. No limit and pot limit games are less common, but some online poker games play particularly well with those structures.

Betting Rounds:

As with stud poker, later betting rounds often have a higher limit than earlier betting rounds. Each betting round begins with the player to the left of the dealer (when blinds are used, the first round begins with the player after the big blind), so community card games are generally positional games.

Most community card games do not play well with lowball hand values, though some do play very well at high-low split, especially with ace-to-five low values, making it possible to win both halves of a pot. When played high-low split, there is generally a minimum qualifying hand for low (often 8-high), and it is played cards speak.

Some of the More Popular Community Card Online Poker Games are:

  1. Texas Holdem Poker
  2. Pineapple (and Crazy Pineapple, Tahoe)
  3. Double-Board Holdem
  4. Omaha Holdem Poker
  5. Courcheval Poker
  6. Manila
  7. Pinatubo Poker
  8. Cincinnati
  9. Iron Cross
  10. Tic Tac Toe
  11. Lame Brain Pete
  12. Six-Pack Online Poker
