Pokerís a great game. Itís fun to watch and itís fun to play. Just
look at Las Vegas to see how many people enjoy it. While thereís not
much physical skill involved, itís all about mental skill. Being able
to know when to stay in or when to fold, or reading the other players,
thereís no doubt that poker is a
highly skilled game. The good news is that you can win a lot of
money very fast. The bad news is that you can also lose it just as
fast. If youíre going to
play poker, you should look for ways to get a sponsor. Youíll find
three ideas below.
Throw a poker party
A great way to get sponsorship is to invite friends over and have a
poker party. Not only will you have wonderful time, practice your
poker face, and win a bit of cash in the process. Just be sure that you
donít win too much. Remember, your friendships are worth more than the
money you could win.
Go to the casinos
Once youíve got your friends to help you out, going to the casinos is
the next step. Youíll find a variety of different skill levels there,
both the novice players and the
professionals. Youíd do well to not only play at the tables, but
also to observe other players. You can learn a lot by watching how
other people play.
Enter poker competitions
The cash prizes should be enough reason to enter a
poker competition. However, there are other reasons as well. If
the event is televised, you will get free publicity and get the chance
to be noticed by other sponsors who viewed the event. Another point is
that since the event will be televised, you can get the chance to replay
it and study both yourself and the other players and learn from it.
