"Online poker is great. It took me years to learn what players can learn now. They spend only one year on the things I had to learn for 10 years," once said Brad Daugherty, one of the most famous poker author and a very successful Texas Hold'em player. Online games appeared in recent years so only the new generation of poker players has an ability to play poker at any time without going to a casino. However, the players of the "old school" enjoy online games and do not miss a chance to participate in online poker tournaments.
Now you can find a great number of sites offering you their online poker games. There's a severe competition between different sites so each of them try to make some promotions, bonus programs and hold free-roll tournaments to draw the players.
There are a lot of advantages of online poker rooms. The possibility of playing at home has been already mentioned. The fact that there are almost no chances for your opponents to cheat is a very remarkable advantage. The software is usually secure and is constantly being improved. However, there are rumors that sometimes the online casino can play dirty tricks with you. The electronic dealer has an ability to rig the deck to reward new players with better luck to keep them coming back and also of other shady dealings. But these are only gossips and no sites were caught at doing it.
