How to manage playing against all-in

posted on September 26, 2017 by

Poker by George | In a game of poker, once a hand is in play the casino rule is that a player cannot add to his chips. During this hand, if he bets the last of his chips he is “all-in.” The dealer usually places an All-In button in front of him.

Heavenly Poker | An optimist is a person who is confident the future will bring good things for him. On the other hand, a pessimist believes the worst is bound to happen. As we will explain, their perspectives while playing the game of poker are so much different.

Heavenly Poker | Playing limit hold’em, on the flop, you can expect to pair up one of your hole cards about one out of three hands. Sometimes, it’s the top pair on the board. That’s nice! But what if there are also two suited cards on the flop?

Poker by George | Playing Texas hold’em in your Sunday afternoon home game, from a middle position, you are dealt Kd-Jc and limp to see the flop along with several other players. The flop comes down on the board, showing Ks-9d-3d. That gives you top pair on the board – an Aha! moment for you.

Winning Strategies | To date, I don’t think I’ve ever been asked to analyze a game that I found impossible to analyze. Some are more difficult than others. The number of cards dealt plays a significant part in the complexity of the analysis based on the sheer number of combinations.

There’s no doubt about it: mobile technology has come a long way over the last decade, especially when it comes to gaming. That said, there is one element of modern smartphone technology that is still lacklustre, to say the least, and that is storage.

posted on September 12, 2017 by

Winning Strategies | When people ask me which games have the highest paybacks in the casino, I generally answer blackjack and video poker. Ultimate Texas Hold’em is not far behind, but with a much larger average wager size, it is not completely fair to put it in the same category.

Heavenly Poker | The game 7-card stud was once a very popular poker game, enjoyed by most players around the world. But, over the last 10 to 15 years, for all intents and purposes, it has been replaced by Texas hold’em. That game is a “has-been.” Few casinos, if any, still offer it.

Winning Strategies | Over the years when talking to friends, I have flippantly remarked how I could sit at a $5 blackjack table with $100 and have it last for a week. The point I’m trying to make is, by using the right strategy, the choice to play in a casino as a form of entertainment does not have to be a costly one.

Poker by George | Playing Texas hold’em, you have been dealt two holecards. Now you must make the most important decision: whether or not to invest in this starting-hand. I always teach my seniors poker classes to use the Hold’em Algorithm. That makes the decision much easier – and less stressful.
