Kaypoker is a widely used online poker platform in South Korea offering SSS Poker, which poker pros understand as Short Stack Strategy. Strategically playing SSS Poker denotes playing with a stack of chips that is much shorter than the regular stack of chips played in poker tables.

Actually, the term short stacks strategy is no longer as frequently used in poker tournaments. It simply refers to playing with minimal or with the least amount of chips at the tournament table. Generally the value of a short stack is below the value of 20 poker blinds. The blinds being the mandatory wager that players must stake on the table before the cards are dealt.

Online Poker as an Alternative Betting Market to Seasonal Sports Betting

off season in sportsSouth Koreans are also sports betting enthusiasts, but the sports betting markets are seasonal. That is in light of the winter and even summer seasons. It’s the time when players are in a furlough since extenuating circumstances like snowstorms, typhoons, hurricanes and flooding can disrupt the schedules of events. While live poler is undeniably an exhilarating experience, there are greater benefits when playing poker online.

Benefits Derived from Playing Poker via the Internet

Although engaging in any form of gambling is illegal in South Korea, many techno-savvy gamblers and gamers play only at sites that use Virtual Private Network (VPN) as means of communicating with customers. Besides, Korean gamblers enjoy the following benefits when playing poker online:

Convenience of Playing Poker Online

First and foremost is the convenience of joining poker tables while each player stays within the comfort of their respective home. Typically, going to clubs or casinos that offer live poker games entail looking for a parking space, or riding a public transport which limits one’s playing time.

In South Korea, local punters face greater hassles if they are to play in a local casino. Mainly because the only casino where they can gamble publicly and legally is in Kangwon Land Casino. It’s an integrated casino-resort complex located at the foot of Daedunsan Mountain in Jeongseon-gun in the remote province of Gangwon-do.

Maximize One’s Betting Money

A player can maximize his gambling money by eliminating the need to pay for transport or fuel, as well as buy food and drinks when playing live poker in a club or casino.

Comfortable Waiting Environment

Waiting in line for a vacant seat at a poker table is not a big deal since a player is within the comfort zone of his home.

Playing in Multiple Tables

An online poker player can join in multiple tables; a feat impossible to achieve with success in live games. Even if one loses a bet on one table, he can recoup losses in another table, especially where his other hands have stronger and greater potential to win.
