Some Poker Tips for Newbies

You have had a rather good run of cards in online poker. When you and your buddies set up a weekend game in your den, you’ve also ruled the game. Now, you think that it is high time to try your hand in a game of casino poker. Problem is, the thought of sitting at a poker table with poker players who’re probably more experienced than you are fairly shakes you up. You’re understandably scared of making yourself the laughingstock of the game. Here are a few tips that can help set your mind at ease.

Show Your True Colors

So you are green and rightly so. You are new in the casino poker scene so why should you dread the thought of looking what you are – a casino poker newbie? If you don’t know what to do, ask. It’s as simple as that.

Of course, you may try learning more about casino etiquette before you actually sit at the poker table and play. It may be alright to show your inexperience, but it certainly isn’t alright to bug your opponents with your shamefaced questions and inevitable gaffes. There’s also the fact that newbie players are usually ‘lunch’ to poker game room sharks. Therefore, look inexperienced, but don’t be bothersome or stupid about it.

The best thing that you can do is go to the casino early and get some poker instruction with the casino in-house instructors and trainers. Most casinos have this value added service for newbies just like you. You should take advantage of this and use it as a learning experience before you go and get some serious playing done.

Use What You Can Afford to Lose

You’ve often enough heard the admonition that you should know your limits and stick to it. This is just a reiteration and it is strongly recommended that you heed this advice.

Before going out to play poker in the casino, set your limits and do not stray from it. Having a limit will give you a definite benchmark for saying when it’s time for you to quit. This is very important since you are new to the casino. You are more likely to be outmatched by your more experienced opponents so it pays to have a definitely set quitting point.

To ensure that you don’t find yourself at a great disadvantage, why don’t you choose to sit at tables with limits and with minimum stakes? At such tables, you know that your bankroll will go a longer way than it would ever do in a high-stakes, no limit game. Moreover, most players in such games are novices such as yourself so you won’t feel so obviously out of place.
