There are procedures, etiquettes to be followed and rules that are distinct for most casinos. For those who are new to a casino, all such aspects can confuse them as well as make it difficult for one to understand how to proceed. One should not get embarrassed or intimidated.

Once the poker destinations are checked out and you have chosen a poker room to play at, starting off becomes difficult.

Check what games are made available at the poker room you wish to play at. Usually the poker room organizers communicate as to when games would be available for the players. Many have TV screens on which the games are listed as well as those who have enlisted to play. Some poker rooms have the lists up on white boards. Most poker rooms would list the games and mention the table numbers alongside. Some mention the names of the players under a game heading so that one understands who would be playing what game and at what table.

Often the numbers could indicate different things. For instance, the numbers in front of a no limit hold’em game would indicate the blinds; in certain cases they stand for the buy in amount. With time and familiarity a player gets to understand the terms and their significance at a poker room.
