Let's make a day dedicated to video poker

Let's make a day dedicated to video poker

Winning Strategies | Back in March, I wrote about National Blackjack Day. March 2 was selected for this day because it is written as 3/2 and a major push for this day was to get casinos to go back to paying 3 to 2 on blackjacks.

Poker by George | Robert Turner made an interesting point in a column, “Show some class.” His message was that players, especially the pros, should consider their behavior and actions as they interact with others while playing poker in cardrooms and casinos.

Heavenly Poker | We all dream on occasion. I have had nights when I dreamed about poker. Recently I had a dream that was so vivid, it seemed like it actually was happening, and repeated itself over and over during the night. I had to wonder if there was a message here for me.

Winning Strategies | We’ve all heard the phrase “if you build it, they will come.” It was popularized in the movie “Field of Dreams” and over time has come to mean that as long as you provide something to the people, they’ll come to it.

Poker by George | It was only a dream, but what a dream it was! It was so realistic, I wished it was for real. Perhaps it was in anticipation of my regular Thursday visit to the Hustler Casino in Gardena, California, later that day.

Deuce over an Ace?

Heavenly Poker | Everyone, even a teenager, knows an Ace is the highest card in the deck; whereas, a deuce is at the bottom of the card rankings. A pair of Aces always beats a pair of deuces – or any other pair, for that matter.

Poker by George | Playing Texas hold’em, it’s always nice to be dealt an Ace in the hole. But what is the best way to play such hands? Of course, the obvious answer to that question is “it depends.” Most important is the Kicker that accompanies the Ace.

Heavenly Poker | Playing low/middle limit Texas hold ‘em, lately I find there seems to be more raising preflop, and the players are much looser. Have you noticed that, too? All that raising makes it much costlier to stay to see the flop.

posted on May 01, 2018 by

Winning Strategies | I consider Ultimate Texas Hold’em (UTH) to be the ultimate casino game. I don’t say that just because I played a part in its creation. I played no part in the creation of video poker, but still consider it to be a transformational creation for the casino. What makes UTH as close to perfection as possible is its unique betting structure.

Beyond the Numbers | I have been defending poker my whole career. I was once an executive host for MGM. I booked a well-known poker player who got drunk and knocked a female security guard across a gaming table. I was called because he was escorted off the property, and they asked me what to do about him.

Heavenly Poker | Strategies and tactics are both important in playing winning poker. There seems to be some confusion in the poker world; many regard these as synonyms for one another. But there is a subtle difference – an important one, as a matter of fact.

Poker by George | In the April 10 issue, I wrote a poker column about “Figuring cost to playing.” What does it cost you to play poker in a casino? The cost-to-play includes your share of the casino rake, the drop for the Bad Beat Jackpot, and tips you give to the dealer when you win a pot.

Crazy for Keno | Little has been written on tickets greater than 10 spots due to the very long odds of hitting a solid catch for more than 10 numbers. However; on tickets of 11 numbers or more most of the money paid out is for hits on less than all the spots.
