Play Online Poker Games at BookMaker
Not that long ago, online poker was “a thing” with explosive growth and national television coverage. Due to the recent COVID-19 situation wreaking havoc on sporting events, gamblers have flooded online card rooms for action.
Online poker is certain to return to prominence with very little else in the way of wagering options these days. Fortunately for both seasoned poker players as well as new or aspiring ones, Bookmaker.eu runs the best online poker rooms in the world.
One of the original draws to online poker is the wide variety of ways you can play. Regardless as to whether or not you have a huge or limited bankroll, we have the poker games that are perfectly suited for you.
Online Poker Cash Games
Online poker cash games are where you make a buy-in for a certain amount of money with the winner of each individual hand getting all of the money put into the pot. Cash game poker is going on 24/7/365 and is easily accessible any time you are in the mood or when it best fits your schedule.
You can join and leave a cash game at any time and take all of your winnings with you, no questions asked. Should you lose the hand that you played, there is an easy remedy; You can simply buy more chips and stay in the game for as long as you want. An old online poker adage is that there is always a seat open at a cash game. That is true and the ultimate appeal of cash games.
Some online poker players prefer cash games because of the freedom to come and go as they please. Such players will even employ hit and run strategies and utilize unique money management tactics to assist their efforts in maximizing profits while minimizing losses.
Keep in mind that when you enter a cash game you will be going up against players from all over the world, all at the same table, and at the same time. It is totally impossible to know the skill levels and the playing experience of the players you will be up against, at least at first. Ultimately this means that the only thing that you will know about is yourself and your own abilities.
Big money cash games are not for the faint of heart and its best that you start slow and play for smaller amounts if you are not used to them. Acclimate yourself with the actual rules and betting limits to give yourself the best possible chance at success.
Online Poker Tournaments
Online poker tournaments are quite popular and also continuously offered morning, noon, and night. In order to participate in a tournament, you pay an up-front entry fee and in return receive a fixed amount of chips that are the exact same amount as the other tournament contestants.
The winner of each hand played at a tournament will of course win all of the chips on that particular hand. Eventually as the tournament proceeds players will start being eliminated when they run out of chips. The objective in a tournament is to be the final player holding chips after everyone else has run out.
Online poker tournaments will have different entry fees that appeal to every level of gambler and bankroll. Keep in mind that each specific poker tournament is an individual entity in and of itself. While the rules are normally simple and similar, they can at times be different and unique so be sure to make certain that you understand that before joining in.
When you watch poker on television it is usually based on a tournament format. Additionally, with so many tournaments available you will be able to find ones that offer various levels of prize money. Ultimately it is the combination of winning a big tournament prize for a comparably small risk of an up-front fee that makes tournament play so appealing and in such high demand.
Online poker tournament play has evolved over the years and has become much more specialized in order to try and best accommodate every level and type of player.
Best of all, even if you have a small bankroll or limited experience, online poker tournaments are great way to quickly learn the game with minimal risk and great potential reward!

Online Poker Rake Fees
“Rake” is one of the most common terms in poker. The actual meaning of the word is in regards to the scaled commission fee charged by the house for operating a poker game. The rake fee is collected from most real money ring game pots, (also commonly referred to as “cash games”). Much like the “vig” charged on a typical sports bet, the rake is the amount of commission deducted as a percentage of each pot played by the online poker room with a predetermined maximum cap amount that is set by the house.
