The Unwritten Rules of Online Poker

If you’re a new poker player, you may be a bit confused with the rules. Most games have a standard order of play, but there are some variations that make it more complex. Understanding the unwritten rules can help you win more.

There are a few things to watch out for when playing online. First, you should not talk about your hand to the dealer. Even if you’re not a professional, you should be careful not to reveal your hold to your fellow players.

Another important rule is to avoid giving advice. You might be a great poker player, but you don’t have to give a player bad advice. It is rude to point out someone’s mistakes, and it tends to spoil the game.

Similarly, you shouldn’t be too quick to call out someone’s hands. You can’t expect your opponent to remember what you said.

There are also some moves you can make to give the illusion that your hand is weak. One is to count your chips and move them closer to the middle of the board.

When you’re making these moves, make sure to keep the following in mind: if you’re using a computer, do not log into your account in real time. This could result in your account being credited for another player’s bet, which isn’t a good thing.

You should also be cautious about using a cell phone. WFP (Women’s Friendly Poker) rules prohibit cell phones from being used in a live poker room.
