There’s a bewildering choice of many different types of online poker game for you to choose from. There are games where you start with one (yes, one!) chip and it’s basically all-in or fold every hand. Or there are Multi-Table Tournaments (MTTs) that have blind and chip structures that mean the tournament can last for many hours. And just about every variation in between. How do you decide which one is best for you to play?

I believe that we all have our different poker playing styles and mindsets, which makes us more suited to a particular type of poker game. It depends on your personality.

Have a think about what type of poker mindset you’re in. It can vary from day-to-day, what mood you’re in, how much time you have etc. If you have low (or no) patience concentrate on the turbo STTs that are available. Most poker sites even have different levels of turbo, catering right up to super-fast, which makes for very aggressive play. This might be highly suitable for you? If not, stay away!

Maybe you naturally have lots of patience, and can spend hours on one Daftar Akun Sbobet88. In this case look for the MTTs that have larger starting chips and longer blind structures. These can last for several hours, and some would argue attract a more ‘serious’ style of poker player.

At the moment I mostly play turbo STT games, due to various commitments. I fit the odd game around everything else I’m doing that day and squeeze it in for a bit of relaxation and ‘me time’. Some people do a crossword, I play a turbo poker game! My mindset is consequently geared for a quick game, with quick decisions. I’ll play more aggressively than I would in a longer format game.

Have a good think about what type of poker game you’re suited to and don’t just play any random game. Seek out the ones where you think you’ll have the mental edge!
Good luck at the tables,
