All poker games originated in casinos. It is only some years back that online games have become popular. Texas Hold ‘Em Poker originated in a small city in Texas from which it reached Dallas. Gradually it became so popular that it was introduced in Las Vegas casinos in 1920s. Since then the game has achieved tremendous fan following and had been included in World Poker Tournament. Though the rules of online and land-based Texas Hold ‘Em Poker are same but there are certain advantages in the online poker game.
The best part of online Texas Hold ‘Em Poker is that you can play it in the comfort of your home. You don’t have to make an effort to get dressed and drive to a casino to play the game when you want to. Also, you can play whenever you feel like. The online games are available 24×7. So it doesn’t have to be only the evenings when you can play. All you need is a computer and Internet connection.
At one time you can play more than one game if you are a hard core Texas Hold ‘Em Poker player. Most online casinos have the feature of allowing their players to play two games at a time. There are thousands of sites to choose from. So the player can leave a Texas Hold ‘Em Poker room if he/she is not satisfied and can join another room within matter of minutes.
All this is not possible in a conventional casino. If you don’t like the ambiance the chances are that you are stuck with it for the rest of the evening. Also, in a casino the game starts only in the evening. At one time you can play only on one table. It is physically impossible to play more than one game.
It is easier for a new player to watch and learn the game in case of online games. You don’t have to play immediately. You can take your time and play a couple of free games while reading some tips and strategies. Then you can start playing with real money. These options are not there in conventional casino. If you are going into one game, you have to play hands with real money and learn.
In a land-based casino the atmosphere is charged with excitement. The whole scene is different and it is great fun to play a live game. But once you get used to online game it is equally exciting. In both the places you have to play intelligently and see what suits you the best.
