Play poker while waiting for the NHL lockout to end



The [NHL lockout: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_NHL_lockout] is still continuing, leaving hockey fans wondering what they will do with their time. There are many avenues they could pursue, one being learning how to play poker. For complete beginners, this game can seem daunting at first. However, with a little instruction and practice, it is possible to firmly grasp the game of poker and to even become quite good at it. Here are some pointers to follow, if you are thinking of taking up the game that is so popular all around the world.

Step One: Familiarise yourself with the rules. Learn about how the cards are dealt and the general format of a poker game.

You can find many useful tips on the partypoker site and you should spend some time learning about the different techniques and tactics that are involved in the game.

Step Two: Practice. Now is the time to begin playing poker. The best way to do this is with friends, in a game of very low stakes. Use this opportunity to build up your confidence and simply enjoy the game. Here is a useful article about [succeeding at low stakes poker: http://www.feltpoker.com/poker-strategy/beating-small-stakes-poker/]. After you have done this, you will then be able to enter into higher stakes games and head to casinos.

The more you play, the more you will get to know your favourite tactics to see and how good you are at bluffing your way through hands, You should also become better at reading the actions of others around the table. Poker is not just about playing your hand, it is also about sitting back, taking it all in and planning your strategy. Stay aware of those you are playing against and try to discover their 'tells' as well as keeping yours secret. Here is a useful video that will help you spot a bluff around the table:
