Texas Hold'em A to Z: L Is for Lay Down

19 August 2011
The biggest mistake that losing poker players make is playing too many hands. It takes discipline to throw away hand after hand waiting for the right starting cards. However, this is only one part of playing winning poker. After waiting patiently for a decent starting hand, the player may find that the hand does not improve and it is very likely that their opponent has them beaten. ... (read more)
 

Texas Hold'em A to Z: K Is for Kicker

5 August 2011
A kicker is a card in an unpaired card in your hand that will determine the winner in the event of a tie. Example: If the winning hand was a pair of Aces and you held A-K and your opponent held A-J, your King would beat his Jack. In this example the King and Jack are the kickers. A sixth card is never used to break a tie. ... (read more)
 

The Price of Convenience

29 July 2011
Several months ago my nephew came to me seeking financial advice. He is a recent college graduate living on his own and working full time. His job pays him a fairly good salary, but he complained that he never seemed to have enough money left at the end of the month after he paid his rent, student loans, car ... (read more)
 

Loose Slot Myths

22 July 2011
The ultimate goal for a slot player is finding a loose machine amidst the vast sea of machines on the casino floor. Some equate the task equal to finding the proverbial needle in a haystack, while others concede it is more like looking for a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Players dream of finding a loose slot machine but few really achieve their goal. ... (read more)
 

Texas Hold'em A to Z: J Is for Jacks

17 June 2011
Kings, Queens and Jacks are often called face cards, pictures cards or paint cards. The Jacks are sometimes called the "Baby Paints." A pair of Jacks is a powerful hand and computer simulations show that it ranks fourth in hands that make the most money. Yet I constantly hear players lamenting that pocket Jacks cost them more money than any other hand. ... (read more)
 

Casino Safety

3 June 2011
If everyone were as honest as you and me, we would never have to worry about safety. Unfortunately whenever there is money involved, you are bound to run into some dishonest people, and at the casino there are a lot of players walking around with a lot of money. Casinos do their best to protect the players ... (read more)
 

Texas Hold'em A to Z: I Is for Implied Odds

20 May 2011
Implied odds are the pot odds adjusted for future betting and should be considered when deciding whether to continue playing your hand in Texas Hold'em. When you figure implied odds, you are adding bets that you expect to win if you make the winning hand. Before you can consider implied odds, you must have a ... (read more)
 

Playing Together Adds to the Fun of Slot Playing

6 May 2011
In the past, playing the slot machine has always been a solitary endeavor. It has been player versus the machine and, other than occasionally making conversation with the player seated next to you, there was not a lot of social interaction amongst slot players. Some players prefer this solitude of slot playing but others miss the camaraderie that can be found at the gaming tables. ... (read more)
 

Texas Hold'em A to Z: H Is for Heads Up

22 April 2011
Playing Texas Hold'em heads up against a single opponent requires a completely different strategy than playing at a full table. While some players may choose a heads up game, the most common situation is during tournament play when it gets down to the final two players who are battling it out for the top prize money. ...

Deal or No Deal

8 April 2011
I have always loved playing games. I grew up long before the video generation and most of the games I played as a child were board games or card games. It didn't really matter. I just loved competing against my family, friends or anyone else I could entice into playing. I guess my love of games is why I also enjoy watching certain games shows on television. ... (read more)
