The only guide you'll need to start your online poker journey
“Poker is a lot like sex, everyone thinks they are the best, but most don’t have a clue what they are doing” – Dutch Boyd
Currently, we all are stuck at our home wondering when this goddamn lockdown will end. Sadly, none of us have any clue about that. All we can do is make this quarantine time as fun as possible. But how? Stuck in a similar dilemma since the lockdown begun, we decided to invest this time to learn a skill that doesn’t bore us to death. Tried our hands on quite a few things actually. Nothing quite caught our attention as Poker.
Now we are no Dutch Boyd to give you any advice on ‘how to win every hand’. Most probably even he can’t tell you that. What we can tell you though is, where can you play some online poker. Whether you want to earn real money online or just play with friends for fun, that’s on you.
FTR Poker, one of the best online poker platforms in India. The website as well as the client are pretty self-explanatory thus being easy to navigate. Once you land on the website, you need to register with your Email ID and download the client that is available for Windows, Mac OS, Android and IOS in order to play the game. FTR Poker has a dedicated ‘How to Play’ page which takes you trough the rules of poker while getting into the nitty-gritty of the game. Apart from this, the ‘Tournaments’ page lists all the upcoming tournaments that they host on the client while the ‘Best Offers’ page list down the ongoing offers players can avail for literally just playing the game.
Speaking of the client, it’s very easy to get a hold of. One can either play with real money, buy poker chips from their online store which then can be used to play in tournaments or play with fake money just for fun. New comers can play with fake money till they get a hang of the game and feel confident enough to play with real money. To be honest, playing poker with fake currency is just like watching a YouTube video of an adventure ride. You can neither experience the thrill of the game nor understand the game to its full extent.
For those of you who aren’t aware already, there are different variations of poker played across the world. FTR Poker lets you play the most popular variations of the game – Texas Hold’em & Omaha, both explained quite precisely on the website.
Poker made our quarantine time better. Though we haven’t started playing with real money yet, we plan to start soon as we get better at the game day by day. Look, it worked out for us doesn’t mean it will for you as well. But you’ll never know unless you try it out yourself. But before you try the game, please remember, Poker is a game of skill. Do not treat it as gambling and gamble your life for it. The more you gamble the more you lose. The more skill you develop, the more you win.
For those looking to get into the beautiful game of online Poker, we’ll be sharing our personal poker experience every alternate day, if not every day. Hope we all learn a thing or two about the game while also starting a side income to achieve our financial goals. Stay tuned to know more about our poker experience! Util next time. Ciao!
