Player Points

When playing poker there are many benefits that come along with playing the game online. Aside from playing in the comfort of your own home or having the opportunity of joining a tournament/cash game table at any moment of the day. Players earn ‘player points’ while they are trying to make some money along the way. Points are sometimes overlooked by some players, but points provide a player with different opportunities. Every online poker room rewards their players for playing at their site by giving them these players points. Points are accumulated differently on every site, but they all reward the players with some great prizes. Let me discuss the ways player points can be used and also how to really take advantage of promotions being offered by online poker rooms.

Over time players can accumulate a bundle of player points that will reward them with excellent prizes. Some of the prizes include branded merchandise from the online poker room you play at. Players can purchase items such as hats, t-shirts, jerseys, bags, drink ware, dart boards, and so much more by using their player points. If players can save up enough points for the ‘finer’ things that are available. The ‘finer’ items I am speaking of are iPods, televisions, cameras, laptops, home theater systems, GPS navigation system, and the list can go on and go depending on the poker site. For the true poker grinders out there that have the ability to earn millions upon millions of points; they have the opportunity of purchasing the most prestigious items on the market. Players that can earn millions of points can eventually purchase their own avatar, a Harley-Davidson, or if two wheels aren’t enough then even cars are available (depends on poker room once again). If the merchandise doesn’t interest you, because you are more interested in making money then use your points to buy into tournaments. Not every tournament accepts players using their points to buy-in, but there are tournaments that do allow it. Find these tournaments and use your player points to earn extra cash for your bankroll.

Players earn these points by playing in cash game hands or buying into a mutli-table/sit ‘n’ go tournaments. This is well known, but players that want to earn more points should take advantage of the promotions being offered by the poker rooms. Often times poker rooms (I won’t say who) offer promotions such as ‘Happy Hour’ or ‘Power Hour’. During these hours, let’s say for instance 2-4 P.M., players can earn up to double or even triple the amount of player points. If players are focusing on earning points then they cannot afford to miss these opportunities. These promotions are offered daily on some sites, and hours vary that will help match any players schedule. Take advantage of these promotions and start your grind during these set hours. Watch your points accumulate like never before, and while you are winning money you are earning points that you can use to reward yourself. That’s all I have to say on the power of the points, and now it’s time to watch the Super Bowl. Everyone enjoy the game and best of luck at the tables my friends.
