Just about any topic you can think of has an online forum dedicated to it. Whether you are looking for a specific answer or just like to chat about your favorite subject, forums are a great way to exchange information and make friends. Poker is no exception. In fact, there are thousands of poker communities on the internet.
Poker forums are a great place to discuss strategy and talk about bad beats. If you’re not sure whether you made the correct play or not, you can post the hand history or the situation and ask other members what they think. Many times you will get lots of different answers and suggestions depending on the type of player who answers. It’s interesting to see how others would have handled the situation.
Poker communities are also great for letting each other know about upcoming tournaments, inviting members to play in private tournaments and keeping leader boards. The poker forum that I am a member at has a few different leagues and they keep points for each of them, so the members can see where they stand all through out the year. Prizes are usually given to the top players. It’s a fun way to compete and meet people.
Many communities also participate in poker forum challenges. In these challenges, your points are added up with other members from your specific forum and the forum with the most points wins.
Some players are members of many forums, but most players consider one forum to be their home forum and that forum is usually the one they spend most of their time and the one they represent at forum challenges.
Whether you are an online or off-line poker player, the benefits of joining a poker community are virtually endless. Don’t miss out on all of the updates and advice from great players that you can only find at such communities.
