  • A big hello from the UK! And a bit of advice?... :)

    Hey My names Luke from the UK and I've been playing poker online for quite a while but only just come over to pokerstars (and really liking the look of it so far!), A casino has just opened up in my city and I plan on going soon to check it out but I've only ever played online, any advice or things I should watch out for that's different from online play, so I don't make a fool of myself or lose quite a bit of money Thanks for any help! umbup:

    Welcome aboard Luke.
    I don't play hold em live so i'll leave that up to others....

    When fish are in schools they sometimes take debate.

      Hi hovislb, Welcome to!<i ...ts"></i>umbup: Please >>CLICK HERE<< for a complete overview that will help to get you familiar with some of the things that PSO has to offer. When it comes to playing live poker at your local casino or card club just be yourself and have fun. There are not that many differences in terms of poker theory live vs. online, besides of course physical tells live. To avoid giving tells away (the strength of your hand via body language to your opponents) just stay relaxed and only look at your whole cards when it is your turn to act pre-flop as well post flop make your action when it is your turn to act! Thank you for being a member of and best of luck to you at the tables!

        Hi Hovis,

        Just be observant in the play and don't act out of turn.

        There is a white line around the table and any action that happens inside that line belongs for the dealer to sort out ie. don't be changing or touching any chips.

        Always announce your raise or call before you move your chips and don't drop your chips in from a height, the first chip to hit the table will be your raise. Similarly if you move a 1,000 chip into the pot and only want to raise 100, you should announce raise first or very likely your raise will be assumed to be 1,000.

        Most important point is enjoy yourself

        I'm sure others will come up with some points., I'm not a regular live player.

          Hey Luke,
          As you can see, you've come to the right place for advice and education.

          Good luck, both online and live.
