Blackjack: Don’t listen to the Casino Dealer

Of the number of things to keep in mind at the blackjack tables, one of them is never listen to the dealer. Not that you should be such an amateur that you’d be seeking the advice of a casino employee as it may determine whether you win or lose money to said casino, but even if it’s offered unsolicited (it happens), you should turn a blind ear and take care of your own business by yourself.
Many dealers, regardless of how much they smile at you and thank you kindly for your tips, are extremely loyal to the online casinos, and are interested in screwing you out of your money, pushing the limit up to but not including stacking the deck. This often can include misdirection with advice, and to the unsuspecting player, will often lead you down the wrong path. It might not cost you the hand, but it likely will cost you some winnings.
What am I talking about specifically? How about a dealer claiming it’s a good thing for everyone that he has an Ace but not blackjack? How about a dealer who’s telling you to hit a 13 against his five? Or better yet, one that discourages you from splitting Aces against his…anything. I’ve seen and heard it all, and it’s amazing to see how many players who seem to know what their doing abandon their strategy and better judgment to follow what the dealer has to tell them, often leading them straight into a brick wall.
Don’t fall prey to this. Some casinos even have profit-sharing systems with the employees on the floor, so the motive and incentive is there for them.
Also, if you’re at any of the USA online casinos and hear it, try to resist the urge to start an argument with the dealer, it won’t end well for you. Since the “wrong decision screws up my hand” theory has been disproven fairly convincingly, you really have nothing to worry about except some other poor schmo losing his bank account. I recommend you play until you win one more nice-sized hand and intentionally stiff the dealer of any tip. Then gather your chips and get up to leave. If you want, you can slide in a “there’s a reason for that” comment to let everyone else here. I can’t see any harm in that.

Poker: He’s a maniac…maniac.

That’s right, no matter how well you play, how much time you spend trying to surround yourself with friendly, reliable, calm players, you’re going to eventually end up in that one online poker tournament where the maniac gambler shows his face. This guy’s raising so much you have to factor it into you’re pre-bet strategy as an assumption.
So how do you handle this guy? There are many schools of thought, and they all have valid advice to give depending on what your tendencies are as a player.
A maniac player is just another name for a bully, and like a bully in any other situation, they’re looking to expose and abuse your weakness. If you’re playing tight, that’s a perceived weakness and he’ll target you to throw you out of your comfort zone and out of the hand. As a calculated tactic, bullying can actually be quite strategic. However, most of the time the bully gets carried away in the moment, and eventually just becomes “that guy” who raises every hand.
As I was saying, though, the bully will back down at most signs of true strength. Although, a bully is not to be taken lightly. Just because he seems out of control doesn’t mean he is. He might be playing over the top the first hour to see what emotional response he can pull out of you, and he might be trying to read you during a strong return or initial bet on your part. So I would recommend, if you are going to try to butt heads with the PokerStars maniac, that you are either confident in your ability to bluff, or just wait until you have a strong enough hand to back up your wager. The upside to playing a bully is if you have the cards, it’s free money.
It’s easy to put the maniac on nothing when he bets pre-flop, too. If he’s betting at least 75 percent of the time, then statistically speaking he will have nothing more often than not. Don’t play your strategy any different than you normally would when it comes to this, though. Assuming someone who may be difficult to read has nothing is a recipe for disaster. Especially since it’s someone you’re not likely to knock out before the flop, thus giving him at least one big chance to catch a card.
Just accept the bully, that’s the best option, and when the time is right, strike with confidence.

Tips for Improving Your PL Omaha Hi/Lo Game

Omaha Hi/Lo holds about the same popularity as Omaha Hi on Party Poker and it will only be a matter of time before you will want to play this game. It’s one of the only poker games where two players could potentially win the pot due to both a high and low hand being able to win. I’ve gathered some tips for all of you new players who want to try playing Omaha Hi/Lo and we’re going to look at them now.
* Try to play hands where you’ll have the chance to win both the high and low hand. In order to win the low hand you need to have the lowest hand using two of your cards and three from the board. In order for the hand to qualify for the low hand there needs to be three cards 8 and under on the board. If you have a hand such as an A-K-Q-2 then you have the chance to potentially win both hands depending on what hits the flop.
* Don’t chase the low pot because sometimes even if you end up hitting what you need for the low pot you’ll end up splitting it with the winner of the high pot. This means you’d only get 25% of the pot, so if you’re the only other player in the pot betting into it you’d lose 25% of the chips you bet. It’s not always smart to call down the low hand unless you have the nuts and you’re getting the right value.
* Play at Poker Stars with a strategy similar to the push/fold strategy when you’re playing pot limit. If you have a hand then bet the maximum and raise it up when you can and if you don’t then just fold. The only time you should flat call is when you have a nut draw that you’re chasing.
* Don’t get in the habit of calling three raises preflop even if you’re playing on the small limit tables. Often players will have very good hands when the action is being raised and called down so unless you have the nut high hand or nut low hand you should stay out of the action.
* Watch how the other players play their hands and see if you can pick up on any tips from the players who are making money. Often you can learn a lot by analyzing hands you lost or by analyzing hands that go to the showdown with other players on the table. You can also take notes in most online poker rooms about the information you learn when analyzing hands so that you can look back on them later on.
The tips I’ve presented you with above will no doubt help you prepare yourself for playing Omaha Hi/Lo. In order to become a better player though, you’re going to need to put these tips and strategies in use on the tables. Practice will make perfect just like in anything else you try learning so make sure you start playing. You can play for free if you don’t have a bankroll already or you can play low limit games if you have money to fund a bankroll.

Caribbean Stud Poker Tips

Once you have read the rules of Caribbean Poker and you know how to play the game I would advise going through the tips below. The tips I have organized for you today will help you with the basics of the game and are ideally for new players who have just finished reading the rules of the game. If you already know how to play the game then you probably won’t the tips very useful.
* Make sure you read what the minimum bet is before you sit down at the table. Often in casinos you will find that the minimum is $15 ante which means a hand is $45. If you don’t have the bankroll for this type of action then you will need to play in an online casino where you can play for a lot less.
* Since your goal in Caribbean Poker is to beat the dealer’s hand you should make sure you learn what the value of poker hand is. Although it isn’t really that important due to the fact you should call with any pair or better, it’s still worth learning them now. Your second bet is also paid based on your hand value so you can find out how much you’ll win before the dealer looks at your hand if you know the values.
* You’re not supposed to see the other players hand when you’re playing this game, but often it won’t matter. Most dealer’s won’t say anything if you’re glancing at the other player’s hands and it helps you lower the house edge so make sure you do it when you can. The worst thing that can happen is that they will tell you not to do it again.
* Always bet on the progressive jackpot when there is one at the Caribbean Poker game you’re playing. Nothing would be worse then winning the progressive jackpot, but not qualifying for the money because you didn’t put in the $1 bet that hand. It’s very rare to hit the jackpot, but it’s worth a $1 a hand because you never know when your lucky day could roll around.
* When you have A/K at the FullTiltPoker.com table, it’s often profitable to make the call because the dealer doesn’t have the best odds for qualifying. If the dealer doesn’t qualify then you win the hand no matter what you have. It will be more risky to call without anything, but you can often win $15 due to the dealer not qualify and you getting paid 1:1 on your ante bet.
* The dealer’s up card can be used to help determine the likelihood of whether or not they have a pair. If you or another player has the same card as the dealer’s up card then that lowers the chances of that card being paired up in the dealer’s hand. This is a good hand to bet even if you don’t have anything because the dealer will only have four cards to make a pair and not five.

Blackjack: A sure thing? Be reasonable

I recently was asked a question in general conversation. “What’s a sure thing?” Turns out this guy needed to parlay about a hundred bucks into thousands to pay off some mounting bills.
Let’s all get the laughs out of the way and focus not on the absurdity of the question (obviously, if there were a sure thing, it wouldn’t be called gambling), but the topic that it spawned. That being, what really are the best odds in the casino? What games give you the best chance, statistically, to hold your own against the house.
Blackjack Online, while it has some of the most favorable odds at the casino, is surely not the game for this guy’s situation. Why? Because it takes money to make money, even in a casino. For game’s like blackjack, the trade-off to decent odds is the need for around half what you think you’re going to win. So if you want to walk out with, say, a $3,000 profit, you’re going to need at least $1,500 to get yourself going. Even seasoned card counters will tell you that.
Now, that’s going to be true of most games, but with craps or roulette, you can man up and put it all in play in one hand if you want. Dropping that roll on the “come” bet in craps isn’t a half bad idea if you’re desperate. If it hits, you’re walking away with your winnings. You can start off on the pass line for a few hundred, and then hope you get reasonably lucky 5 or 6 times in a row. I’d rather take my chances there than betting a color on roulette any day.
Avoid three card poker, though, as the payoff just isn’t worth it. Same with Caribbean Stud. On three-card, the most you’ll see on a payoff is about 40:1, and that’s with a three-card straight, which you’re not likely to see nearly enough to make it even worth your time, not to mention your money. Caribbean Stud is a trap, I won’t say more. If you really need to hit the jackpot, you can just as easily play your local lottery, you don’t need to Caribbean progressive to do that.
The safest option, but one that requires the most time, is to continue to bet on near sure-things of sports matches. The payoffs will be like nickel and dime-ing your way up the ladder, but it’s better odds than any casino game you’ll find across the way.

Once you have read the rules of Caribbean Poker and you know how to play the game I would advise going through the tips below. The tips I have organized for you today will help you with the basics of the game and are ideally for new players who have just finished reading the rules of the game. If you already know how to play the game then you probably won’t the tips very useful.
* Make sure you read what the minimum bet is before you sit down at the table. Often in casinos you will find that the minimum is $15 ante which means a hand is $45. If you don’t have the bankroll for this type of action then you will need to play in an online casino where you can play for a lot less.
* Since your goal in Caribbean Poker is to beat the dealer’s hand you should make sure you learn what the value of poker hand is. Although it isn’t really that important due to the fact you should call with any pair or better, it’s still worth learning them now. Your second bet is also paid based on your hand value so you can find out how much you’ll win before the dealer looks at your hand if you know the values.
* You’re not supposed to see the other players hand when you’re playing this game, but often it won’t matter. Most dealer’s won’t say anything if you’re glancing at the other player’s hands and it helps you lower the house edge so make sure you do it when you can. The worst thing that can happen is that they will tell you not to do it again.
* Always bet on the progressive jackpot when there is one at the Caribbean Poker game you’re playing. Nothing would be worse then winning the progressive jackpot, but not qualifying for the money because you didn’t put in the $1 bet that hand. It’s very rare to hit the jackpot, but it’s worth a $1 a hand because you never know when your lucky day could roll around.
* When you have A/K at the FullTiltPoker.com table, it’s often profitable to make the call because the dealer doesn’t have the best odds for qualifying. If the dealer doesn’t qualify then you win the hand no matter what you have. It will be more risky to call without anything, but you can often win $15 due to the dealer not qualify and you getting paid 1:1 on your ante bet.
* The dealer’s up card can be used to help determine the likelihood of whether or not they have a pair. If you or another player has the same card as the dealer’s up card then that lowers the chances of that card being paired up in the dealer’s hand. This is a good hand to bet even if you don’t have anything because the dealer will only have four cards to make a pair and not five.

Blackjack: A sure thing? Be reasonable

I recently was asked a question in general conversation. “What’s a sure thing?” Turns out this guy needed to parlay about a hundred bucks into thousands to pay off some mounting bills.
Let’s all get the laughs out of the way and focus not on the absurdity of the question (obviously, if there were a sure thing, it wouldn’t be called gambling), but the topic that it spawned. That being, what really are the best odds in the casino? What games give you the best chance, statistically, to hold your own against the house.
Blackjack Online, while it has some of the most favorable odds at the casino, is surely not the game for this guy’s situation. Why? Because it takes money to make money, even in a casino. For game’s like blackjack, the trade-off to decent odds is the need for around half what you think you’re going to win. So if you want to walk out with, say, a $3,000 profit, you’re going to need at least $1,500 to get yourself going. Even seasoned card counters will tell you that.
Now, that’s going to be true of most games, but with craps or roulette, you can man up and put it all in play in one hand if you want. Dropping that roll on the “come” bet in craps isn’t a half bad idea if you’re desperate. If it hits, you’re walking away with your winnings. You can start off on the pass line for a few hundred, and then hope you get reasonably lucky 5 or 6 times in a row. I’d rather take my chances there than betting a color on roulette any day.
Avoid three card poker, though, as the payoff just isn’t worth it. Same with Caribbean Stud. On three-card, the most you’ll see on a payoff is about 40:1, and that’s with a three-card straight, which you’re not likely to see nearly enough to make it even worth your time, not to mention your money. Caribbean Stud is a trap, I won’t say more. If you really need to hit the jackpot, you can just as easily play your local lottery, you don’t need to Caribbean progressive to do that.
The safest option, but one that requires the most time, is to continue to bet on near sure-things of sports matches. The payoffs will be like nickel and dime-ing your way up the ladder, but it’s better odds than any casino game you’ll find across the way.
