Video Poker

I have been to Reno in Nevada quite a few times and have played video poker a lot there. Video poker is enormously popular with players the World over as it is your skill that can make the difference between winning and losing. When I got home from Nevada a few month's ago I decided to see if I could play this game online. After trawling through lots of sites I came across 32Red which is listed here at UK Shop Index. 32Red have their own type of video poker which is called Poker Pursuit and is Video Poker with a difference, because you get the chance to increase your stake as the cards are dealt. Your winnings are based on the Poker Hands. You have no dealer to beat, you are rewarded on the Poker value of your hand. If you have increased your bet all the way through you get paid accordingly! So, the objective is to maximise your winnings and minimise your losses. Admittedly I am currently losing money playing this game but it's still great fun and hopefully now I have got a hang of it I will begin to win.

Texas Hold'em

I am currently looking for a site where I can play Texas Hold'Em, which is a popular type of poker, and the game played at the World Series of Poker at the Binion's Horseshoe casino in Las Vegas. Texas Hold'Em poker is by far the best game for a beginner to learn in my opinion and also contains the most skill and ups and downs for any player. Instead of other poker games like Omaha High or 7 card stud which entail a great many more possibilities for calculating odds and perhaps even trying to count cards, Hold'Em can be learned in a few minutes by anyone, and you can be playing fairly well with a few hours practice. If anyone knows a good site to play Texas Hold'Em in the UK then please post it on this site, it's very addictive and I can't wait to return to Vegas to play it.
