The gambler’s life became easier with introduction of online gambling and casinos, but such dinosaurs like Texas Holdem had grown into something bigger, and it seems mutated more on the Web than it was expected. Anyone may go online and download Texas Holdem free software applications or just use those online, but not everyone is aware or digs what is behind the options and modes of every piece of such software. At the same time, today even Texas Holdem book authors put a strong emphasis on the necessity to use training poker simulators or, at least, their ‘talkative’ modes, which may help in many trivial situations and expose more subtle problems in one’s process of playing.
Being capable to make use of online training tools is crucial for the modern world of gambling; it is important for a number of reasons and the most important one lies in the ability to respond to events quickly and thoughtfully. These personal qualities have nothing in common with a strategy or skills to ‘read’ other players’ faces, but they are very specific to successful online gambling. People, who play online a lot, are not, as a rule, good players of live poker, while the reverse may happen much easier. This is explained with some habit patterns that players of poker bring up from the very beginning of their gambling career. Every experienced poker player will never allow a call without a reason, but an online gambler may play in a semi-automated mode and take such risks with no problem.
