Professional Live Cash Game Players
Although live poker tournaments get almost all of the publicity and TV coverage, it is actually ring games that make up most of the poker tables in a casino at any given time. Players buy into ring games, also known as cash games, with real money chips, and are free to cash out whenever they want.
