Ladbrokes Poker is fast becoming a go-to game for me. As you know I've often written about playing Bingo online, but the complexity and psychology of Poker has me fascinated.

First off I like the fact that Ladbrokes Poker comes from a reputable company. I've tried a variety of sites online and many of them look good but I'm never sure how well they are run. Ladbrokes may not look as flash but it has all the information you need at your fingertips.

Like other sites, Ladbrokes has a Welcome Bonus. This is where the site essentially doubles your first deposit. This was ideal for me as I set aside a certain amount to play with each month -- so I'm sure I keep things just for fun. The month I tried Ladbrokes I had double the money to play with.

A big part of the enjoyment of playing Poker is the social aspect for me. It is good to see that Ladbrokes has a exclusive social series for Facebook and Twitter users. This makes the experience feel much more friendly. They also seem very responsive on their Twitter account -- which is another good sign in my book.

I know not everyone likes gambling but I guess there are worse things a girl can do aren't there? I liked that Ladbrokes.com has a dedicated Responsible Gambling page to ensuring players get the most out of the game in the right way.

There are also lots of tips and information on how Poker works. Coming from an experience with Bingo I found myself doing more reading before I started playing to make sure I understood things. I even got a couple of books out of the library to gen up -- get me!

For more experienced players, the Poker School is also a nice way to learn about the finer details of the game. If I could just remember all this information when I'm playing I think I'd be a much more successful player. Time will tell.

If you are looking for a professional poker site I think Ladbrokes poker is very good.

"I think it's probably true that most of us have grown up with computer games - I have a dark and distant memory of some sort of black box with two controllers that allowed us to play an extremely primitive and pixelated game of tennis."

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
