High Stakes Poker Online

Lots of online poker rooms offer extremely high stakes poker games. One should be aware though that playing for big money isn't necessary to make a living or even to beat the rake. You can make a great living playing $10/$20 or $15/$30 if you're a solid player. In fact, if you're not a really great player, you might not even want t mess with the higher stakes games.

High Stakes Poker at PokerStars

PokerStars is our top pick for an online poker room for a number of reasons. Not only do they have the best software and the most tournaments, but they also have some of the biggest poker action on the Internet.

PokerStars offers at least three big high stakes games of $100/$200 and up.

You need to be able to lose $5000 without batting an eye to be able to handle this kind of high stakes poker action. Most of us would be short stacked at a table like this, myself included.

A High Stakes Poker Bankroll

How much cash would you need to sit in this game? You can convert this game (and any other game for that matter) into the equivalent of a game that you're more used to by thinking about how many chips are being wagered.

What I mean by this is that in a $300 - $600 game you're playing $3/$6 holdem with $100 chips.

So if you feel comfortable playing in a $3 - 6 poker game with 2 racks but want to be able to buy 10 racks just in case you run unlucky you can simply convert this by multiplying these racks by $100. So 2 racks in $3/6 is $200, therefore in order to have 2 racks in $300/ 600 you'll need $20,000.

Consequently you'll need $100,000 to get that 10 rack comfort level.

THAT is high stakes poker.
