Figuring a proper cost for poker players and casinos

posted on April 10, 2018 by

Poker by George | Casinos and cardrooms are in business to make a profit. Otherwise they would not exist. As a matter of fact, not all casinos are successful. For example, in Atlantic City five casinos closed between 2014 and 2016.

Crazy for Keno | The attached picture shows a $50,000-plus winning way ticket from the El Cortez in downtown. It is an example of a combination ticket used to good advantage. A combination ticket is where multiple rates are used on a way ticket.

Winning Strategies | I admit to pretty much stop checking my NCAA brackets after the opening weekend. When a 16-seed knocked off a 1-seed that I had going to the Final 4, I knew I wasn’t going to do well. This evening, I decided to check. It wasn’t pretty.

Advice for highly aggressive tables

posted on April 03, 2018 by

Heavenly Poker | I thought it appropriate to offer GT readers more advice about playing at highly aggressive tables. Playing in such games can be very expensive. On the other hand, a few changes can substantially increase your winnings, since the pots are bound to be bigger.

Online casino goers need to be explorers quite often. Since real money is at stake we all want to invest it the best way possible, at the best places, honest places, somewhere where we’re treated with respect, honesty and rewarded for our loyalty, devotion and ambition.

Ways to play a flopped set

Ways to play a flopped set

posted on March 27, 2018 by

Poker by George | A set is three of a kind when you start with a pair in the hole. The odds are long against connecting on the flop; but it does happen. It’s a powerful hand, and often wins the pot. What’s the best way to play your flopped set? It depends.

Heavenly Poker | Playing low/middle limit Texas hold’em, lately there seems to be more raising preflop, and players are much looser. Have you noticed that, too? I’m not sure why this has happened.

Crazy for Keno | The answer to the question “Which is the best ticket to play” is obvious. It is the ticket that wins for you. Short of doing the mathematical calculation for each ticket, how can you tell which ticket is the best one to play?

Winning Strategies | If I could capture every event in the casino, I’m fairly certain I would find that players are shy about hitting into busting in blackjack, fold too infrequently in most other games and almost never use the Surrender option in blackjack.

Heavenly Poker | Several issues ago, we discussed Texas hold’em drawing hands that hold great promise – loads of outs; but in the end, would cost you lots of chips if you were to connect. As we explained, the problem is some of your outs may be “tainted.”

Crazy for Keno | I am a great favorite of hitting a large payoff with a minimum investment. The Atlantis Reno has just the pay table to make this effort possible. It is their 10 cents per way keno in which you may bet a minimum of 10 cents a way and a maximum of 10 cents way.
