Poker by George | Poker columnist Ed Miller wrote a recent piece called “Specialize Your Game” and it led me to give serious thought to this subject, which I now share with my readers. Going one step further, I offer my own perspective on specializing when you play poker.

Heavenly Poker | If you play much poker, undoubtedly you have experienced (suffered?) at least one “bad beat.” It’s when you have a great hand but lose to an opponent who drew with few outs – and caught it. As they say, your opponent “drew out” on you.

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.

Deuce over an Ace?

Raising tactics in low-middle limit hold'em

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.
