Online poker adventure

Of all the card games, online poker may be said to be the best known worldwide and the one that has been played for the longest period of time. However, it is not played as much as it can be imagined as some of its main characteristics make it more suitable for casinos and clubs than for informal contexts like the home. The exception to this would be the traditional meetings held by friends and neighbours who gather round a poker table in the US on Friday or Saturday nights, but this is not the case for other countries.


Being poker a game of skill more than a game of chance, as the ability to deceive the opponent is more important than the value of the bet –though the latter is key when it comes to bet strong– it is rarely played in a family context.


We aim to provide a reader-friendly presentation of what this exciting game is all about. Its potential for dramatic exploitation has been explored by literature and in American western and gangster films in the twenties. This game has played an important role in the gangster world; let’s remember Al Capone’s Chicago or Frank Costello and Lucky Luciano’s New York which bristled with gambling dens run by the big gangsters where poker was the protagonist together with other card games and the roulette. And as regards western films, Wild Bill Hickok’s luck in a round of poker played in Deadwood in 1876 is worth remembering. Poker has been one of the most exciting games in novels, films, and real life as well.


Do not expect to find magic recipes for success or odds calculations here. It is strategy and the ability to deceive the keys to success or failure. However, you can expect to find all you need to know about poker if you really want to be a winner.
