Poker and its variants
Poker is a very popular game in casinos. The games are not only based on luck and chance, but also on strategy. Poker invites you to be smart, bold and focused to win the game.
Over a century old, poker has several variants such as: Texas Hold'em Poker, Omaha, Stud, Razz, Closed Poker, Royal or Peney Hold'em. Each variant has its own specificities, for Texas Hold'em Poker, the most popular variant, the tables consist of 2 to 10 players. The objective is to obtain the best possible combination of 5 cards, by choosing from your 2 personal cards and 5 other cards revealed on the board. Of course, before playing, each participant must buy a minimum amount to join the game. The blinds are called and the game can begin.
In Omaha, each player is dealt 4 cards face down, not 2. Omaha is considered an ultra-aggressive variant of Texas. Stud offers only hole cards or face cards, but never community cards. Razz is the opposite of Texas Hold'em Poker in that it offers the worst possible hand.
Draw Poker is the variant that allows you to test your bluffing strategy to fool your opponents. The Royal is a more recent variation of Texas Poker, in which cards under 10 are removed. This makes it a very aggressive game. Finally, Peney Hold'em is the variant that requires the most skill. Many tournaments are held every year.
If you're a new GAMR, GAMRFIRST advises you to start with the simpler variations and work your way up. Rise to the top and take the crown!
The differences between online poker and regular poker
Since 2000, poker has grown exponentially and continues to do so. Poker offers many tournaments in which novices and experienced players alike can compete. The bets are piling up and everyone hopes to have a lucky star overhead to make a rush (a series of winning moves).
However, with the development of online casino games, some differences are emerging between video poker and traditional poker, played around a table.
In a visual that resembles a slot machine, in video poker you play against the computer. There is no need for bluffing or pressure tactics. You can play quietly, at your own pace. This makes it the perfect game to play when you want to get your feet wet before becoming a legendary GAMR.
The rules of video poker are also simpler than those of regular poker. In general, there is only one round of betting. You are dealt 5 cards, just like your virtual opponent. Then, as in poker, you discard or hold cards for the final round.
Another option you can find at GAMRFIRST is live poker. If you want to play poker like in the Casino Barrière Montreux, join one of our live tables. Here, a dealer deals the cards and real players participate in the game. Everyone is playing against the bank in a 1-on-1 format, so use your wits and strategy to win the crown!
What are the strategies of online poker players?
Did you know that the best poker players in our online casino don't just rely on their lucky stars? There are many effective online poker strategies that can help you win the game!
The Poker Bluff
This is the most common strategy used in the poker world! Bluffing is the act of deceiving your opponent into thinking that you have a better or worse hand than him or that you are going all-in. However, bluffing is a strategy of logic, which requires great concentration and probability calculations. Indeed, for a successful bluff, you must take into account various parameters. The number of opponents and their aggressiveness, your reputation at the table, the amount of the pot, the board and your position in the game are all fundamental elements for a successful bluff.

The Slow Play
The slow play strategy consists of making your opponents believe that you have a weak hand when you have more than one round left in your hand. This tactic is based on pure psychology and bluffing. The opponent, believing he is winning the game, raises his bet and feeds a pot that he is not in a position to win. The slow play is quite basic, but very effective.
Slow play can be a good tactic when your hand is unlikely to be beaten or if your opponent is aggressive or has few chips left. After the flop, he goes all-in, no matter what.
Stealing the blinds
Another tactic based on psychology and your ability to keep your cool. You have no game and yet... you can take the crown!
When the game starts with the first few bets (on the button, small or big blind), raise your opponents as if you had a bold hand. The purpose of stealing blinds is to force the other players to fold to win the blinds (bets). Only a clever and daring player like you can pull off this trick.
The check raise
The check raise tactic is one of the most formidable strategies and the poker player's best weapon. Indeed, this strategy can be attempted whether you have an excellent hand or a total bluff, for the most confident players.
Similar to slow play, the objective of the check raise is to increase the pot by simulating a weak hand. Even with small hands, opponents are encouraged to bet more, since they are almost guaranteed to win the jackpot! Then you raise with a large bet. The other players understand the trap and naturally fold.
The blocking bet
The blocking bet is a strategy that consists of making a moderate bet that allows you to stay in a game at a lower cost. More defensive than aggressive, this tactic is used by experienced players when they know they are being dominated by their opponents. It is also used to slow down the pace of the bidding. Thus, by making a small bet, it has a chance of being called, but not raised. The goal of the maneuver is to see another card or even the showdown, and at a lower cost.
The New York back raise
With the New York back raise (NYBR), you play double or nothing! This tactic is best used by experienced and seasoned RMSGs. This strategy is best used when the player knows his opponents, their psychology and their style of play. The goal of NYBR is to raise the pot by making a pre-flop call (i.e., during the turn before the simultaneous turn of the first three community cards of the stack after the first round of betting) while anticipating a squeeze, or raise, from an opponent. The GAMR can then make a back raise.
