Chinese Poker Online: Finding a Needle in a haystack

As Chinese poker has fallen from favour it becomes increasingly difficult to find a site that you can play at. The only site I could find was Tiger Gaming. Although even on this site you would have to look for it under the ‘13 Card Poker’ Banner.

Tiger Gaming has long been the most well known online providers of Chinese Poker and other exotic games. Both eastern and western styles of play are available so you can choose which type of game suits your taste.

Play money tables are available so new players can learn Chinese Poker before deciding to play for real money. Real money games range from 25 cents to $10 per point.

Fortunately for fledgling Chinese poker players Tiger Gaming has some of the worst poker players around. Although bear in mind at the higher limits of Chinese Poker the standard will be a lot better due to a lack of places to play Chinese poker.

Tiger Gaming, part of the Action Poker Network, which is in the top 25 poker sites and Networks on the internet, shares it’s players and tables with the other members of the network. Tiger Gaming has good customer support, decent software and good tournaments and reloads. New players can get a sign up bonus and it runs decent promotions. Tiger Gaming offers reloads nearly every month. These reloads are generally quite lucrative with 50% up to $1250 [or a player's maximum deposit limit].

Building a Bankroll – A Rough Guide

If you want to play poker to have a bit of fun and you don’t care about making money, (or perhaps you are independently wealthy) look away now. Maybe sing a little song to yourself or go and play a bit of poker.

Right now the monkeys are out of the way you can focus. One of the key things about actually making money online is bankroll management. To build your bankroll so you can play with big boys can take a lot of hard work. However if you set yourself some guidelines you can become one of those players that actually make money and not one that is endlessly reloading.

Firstly keep records. Know for certain whether you are a winning player. You can get software to do this for you, pokeroffice or pokertracker, or you can set yourself up a little spreadsheet in Excel. Record wins, losses, rakes, hours played as a minimum.

Secondly implement some rules. If you play cash NLH then roughly 300 times the big blind is adequate (so for 50C/$1 games you need about $300). If you play SnG or MTT then 20 or 30 time the buy in should be adequate. If you suffer three or four bad beats (or losses through stupidity – yes we all do it) the get up from the computer and do something different. Whatever you do don’t double up to cover your losses.

Lastly play at a level you win at. If you make some money and move up a level but find you start to loose don’t be afraid to drop down a level. Being a winning player at a lower level that your bankroll suggest is better that blowing all your bankroll in one session.
