Play Poker Via Browser

Some major sites allow free online poker games without the need to download or install software.

PartyPoker - Free Online Poker No Download

One of the best examples of this in action is the PartyPoker 'Instant Play'. This allows players to pull up their accounts anywhere in the world with no download necessary - only internet access and a browser.

Compared to more casual browser-based gaming sites, PartyPoker pits players against those who are also using the software, which means more serious games and better practice against live opponents.

Software-Free Poker Practice

PartyPoker also has non-player computers, or bots, to practice against in free online poker games. There are two primary reasons players would want to play against bots.

The first reason is for people who simply do not currently feel like playing against human opponents. This allows players to take their time and play without pressure or worry about appearing to be thinking or bluffing. Second, playing against bots is a good way to develop new or secret poker strategies.

To get to these practice tables through PartyPoker's browser-based application, change the view to 'Classic' which can be found under the 'Deposit' button.

Next, choose 'Play Money' from the tabs above the listed tables. From there, scroll down in the small 'Game Name' window then choose and open the 'Training Table' as highlighted in the image below:

Play Free Games with Caution

However, as with all free online poker games, you should ensure that you attempt to play as though you were dealing with a real-money bankroll. Otherwise, you can fall into bad habits that will carry over to your cash games and tournaments and lead you to moments of bad play or tilting.
