Let’s start with the pros:
Pro #1: Play anytime, anywhere
Playing through an app or poker website allows you to get your poker fix whenever and wherever you want. As long as you have your smart phone, tablet, laptop or computer with you (and you have access to the internet), you can start playing right away.
Pro #2: No need to dress up
Why bother dressing up when you can play straight out of bed? Again, all you need is a device that can run a poker app or website and you’re good to go—even if you’re still in your underwear!
Pro #3: No need to commute
Another benefit of playing online poker is that you don’t have to waste time and money commuting to an actual casino. The time and money you save can then be used to play and win more games. Sounds like a good deal, right?
Pro #4: No need to carry real money
Carrying real cash—especially lots of it when you’re playing for the big bucks—is risky. Online poker completely eliminates this by allowing you to play for as much money as you want without actually using real cash in the process.
Pro #5: Easier to keep track of your progress
Modern poker apps and websites record valuable information like player stats, earnings and losses to provide users with an accurate snapshot of how they are doing at any given time. This gives you an opportunity to adjust your strategy accordingly and ultimately up your chances of winning.
Now that we got the benefits out of the way, let’s take a look at some of the cons of playing real money poker via an app or poker website:
Con #1: Cheating is more difficult to detect
In physical games, all you need is a good pair of eyes and a bit of experience to catch cheaters. Unfortunately, digital cheating is much trickier to detect for the average person because happens in the background. Unless you pay super close attention and you have a sufficient enough understanding of how things are supposed to work exactly, you probably won’t know anything is wrong.
Con #2: Confusing currencies and conversion fees
Some poker apps and websites only let you play using digital tokens or any other similar form of pseudo currency. The problem is that in most cases, it’s not exactly clear how they convert to real money. Also, when you do push through with the conversion, you’ll most likely end up with less money than expected because of conversion charges and other surprise fees.
Con #3: Unsecure transactions
Whether you’re playing with real money or some form of digital currency, doing any monetary transaction online comes with certain risks, especially when the platform you are using does not have topnotch security.
Con #4: No way to read your opponents’ tells
Finally, since you’re not playing face to face with your opponents, it’s impossible for you to read their facial expressions and mannerisms—which is a crucial part of strategizing in poker. This ultimately makes it more challenging for you to plan your moves and make the necessary adjustments along the way.
