When it is your first time playing poker at a real casino, make sure you know the basic game rules before entering the game. You must make sure that you put your name on the waitlist if all the seats are occupied. Get your own chips from the cashier counter to save time for exchanging the chips at the table. Lay the money on the table as the casino staff cannot accept money directly from the guest’s hand. Do not keep your chips or hands at the play area unless you are betting. Listen for your call always, and avoid getting distracted during the games. The best way to play poker is always to make reasonable bets during the game.
