Online poker is the game of poker played over the Internet. It has been partly responsible for a dramatic increase in the number of poker players worldwide. Traditional venues for playing poker, such as casinos and poker rooms, may be intimidating for novice players and are often located in geographically disparate locations. There are serious differences between online poker gaming and in-person gaming.

One obvious difference is that players do not sit right across from each other, removing any ability to observe others' reactions and body language. Instead, online poker players learn to focus more keenly on betting patterns, reaction time, speed of play, use of check boxes/auto plays, opponents' fold/flop percentages, chat box, waiting for the big blind, beginners' tells, and other behavior tells that are not physical in nature. Since poker is a game that requires adaptability, successful online players learn to master the new frontiers of their surroundings.

Online poker is also considerably cheaper to play than traditional poker. An online poker player can play at home, which means he or she incurs no transportation ...
... costs to get to and from the poker room. Provided the player already has a modern computer and an Internet connection, there are no further start-up costs for the player. An additional advantage to online poker is that a player can enter and leave tables almost as he pleases; in traditional poker, however, the player must remain seated until he or she wishes to stop playing, or else go back to the bottom of the waiting list.

One issue exclusive to online poker is the fact that players come from around the world and deal in a variety of currencies. This is not an issue in live poker where all of the players are expected to carry the local currency. Most online poker sites operate games exclusively in U.S. dollars, even if they do not accept players based in the United States. There are two methods by which poker sites can cater to players who do not deal with U.S. dollars on a regular basis.

The first method is to hold players' funds in their native currencies and convert them only when players enter and leave games. The main benefit of this method for players is to ensure that the money they've won is not subject to exchange rate fluctuations against their local currencies whilst they are not playing. It is the policy of most sites to apply the same exchange rate when a player cashes out of a game as when he or she bought in; this ensures that players do not expend significant sums simply by entering and leaving games. The other method is to require players to convert their funds when depositing them. One benefit of this method is that a player who constantly "tops up" his chip stack to a constant level does not have to worry about rounding issues when topping up.

Online poker has enjoyed tremendous a success which is likely to continue into the immediate future. Online poker can be a fun, interesting, and inexpensive way to explore or enjoy the game of poker. Learning about its intricacies is an important part of mastering the game in its virtual form.
