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.

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.

Heavenly Poker | Have you ever been a “chaser” at the poker table? These are players who hope to catch one of their outs even if they only have a few. Some may go all the way to the river and the showdown.
