Burn Poker

If you are new to online poker you might become a bit lost when it comes to finding an online poker room and setting up an account. Here is a walk through for new players:

The first thing you need to do is decide which online poker room is right for you. You'll need to find a poker room that has a long standing reputation, such as PokerStars, and also offers a quality game and software. Make sure you spend some time reading the reviews on this site of the different poker rooms in order to find a room that works for you. If a bonus is important then you'll also need to make sure that the room you choose offers a good bonus program.

Once you've chosen the online room that you want to play in you'll need to download the software which is always free and a quick. After downloading the poker room software onto your computer you'll be able to visit the poker room lobby which is where you can set up your account.

After creating your account you can either start playing for free with play money or register for a real money account by making your first deposit. There are always dozens of options for depositing money into your account. There are different options for different countries and I'm sure they'll have a method that you can use. The easiest methods are credit cards or eChecks.

Depending which method you used to deposit money into your account you will be able to play almost instantly. Most rooms have filters which you can use to narrow down the list of tournaments or regular table games. Once you're sitting down at the table everything is self-explanatory with regards to Call, Raise or Fold. It doesn't take long at all for a new poker player to get set-up online and start playing. The entire process can be completed within minutes which is one of the reasons online poker is so popular.
