Many online poker sites have chat rooms. These can be a great place to go for lots of reasons. It can be a great place to just socialise with people who have a common interest but also a good place to discuss tactics and the game.
You might be able to pick up some hints and tips form other players who are willing to give away a few of their secrets. You might also be able ask questions and learn more about the particular site you are on. If you are new to playing or want to try out different sites, then this can help you to choose between them.
You will get a feel for the chat room, even if you do not actually do much chatting. You can read what people are commenting on and it will give you an idea of whether it is the sort of place you want to be and whether they are talking about subjects you are interested in.
You may prefer to read reviews of the various sites and see whether they mention what the chat rooms are like. This could save you some time in searching a lot of sites and registering on them, but it will mean that you are relying on the opinions of others, when you may not necessarily agree with them. It might be better to read some reviews and make a short list of sites and then go and check up on those for yourself. Also it could be better to look at a selection of review sites to see whether they agree with each other.
It may take a while, but it will be worth it as you will find somewhere that will suit you rather than going for the first site you find which may just be up to scratch.
If you find that playing poker is getting addictive, make sure to seek help.
