IS THE ART OF RAISING GOING OUT OF THE GAME OF POKER?

Monday, 26. October 2009 15:25

That is the question. When playing any type of poker game you will have to make a decision based off of your knowledge of the cards, the players, and off of luck. With online poker this decision is even harder to make because you have to use the way they have been playing their game versus the body language of the other players.

Body language during a regular poker game can tell you a lot of things. You may be able to tell if somebody is bluffing, or if they have pocket aces by the way they act. In a game of online poker, you have to go by the way they play. You can only guess what they have based off of what you have and depending on what type of poker you are playing the cards that are visible. You might be able to have a general idea by the amount of money they are putting in the pot, but are they bluffing?

Regardless the decision to raise comes down to you when it is your turn. Are you just going to check and let it go as is? Do you stay in the game and call it? Do you raise it? Do you fold? Depending on what cards you have and what type of player you are you might raise the pot.

The game of poker is a game of skill and luck. It doesn’t matter how much skill you have it is not a guarantee of a win, although it will help. There is a certain percentage of luck that goes into every hand. Knowledge of the game will make you a better player, and as you play that knowledge will be used. Luck comes in where you never know what cards you are going to get. Are you in luck and get that last card of a royal flush or do you get the lowest card of another suit? If it is the last card in play, and you are betting on luck to give you the needed card you may be finding yourself a big winner or a big loser.

The knowledge of the cards and the different combinations that allow you to win a hand are just as important as a little of luck. Knowing the difference between a flush, a straight, and four of a kind is easy for those that play all the time. For a new player, they might be confusing at first. They will quickly learn the different hands and what is worth more. How many times have you seen a royal flush?

The cards can be funny. Sometimes they will go the way you want and other times they will go the opposite way. Sometimes even in the same hand. You have to trust yourself, and your luck to make the decision on whether to raise or bet. Do you have a good hand to start with? Do you have what is possible the best hand on the table?

Poker – you got to know when to hold em

Thursday, 24. September 2009 19:06

Poker: You got to know when to hold ‘em. Texas hold em poker is officially recognised as being developed in Robstown Texas in the early 19th century in Texas State legislature. It wasn’t until 1967 that Texas hold em poker made its way to Vegas where it quickly became regarded as a game for the thinking man. Hold em is one of many variations of poker available today and the “no-limit” version is the main event of the World Poker Tournament which is held annually and televised to many locations worldwide. It was this exposure on the small screen that caused the strategic games popularity to skyrocket.

The World Series of poker was the first ever poker tournament held in 1970, it was in 1971 that “no-limit” hold em became the main event. Other forms of Texas hold em include “Limit” and “Pot” .The arrival of Texas hold em saw a fall in popularity of the once much loved 7-card stud poker. Although regarded as being a strategic and analytic game, hold ‘em is not as difficult as some people think. A standard 52 card joker-free deck is used to play the game with players tasked at making the best 5 card hand possible with a combination of the cards they were dealt and the 5 “community” cards on the table. As with all poker games both online poker and in the casinos and card rooms, the aim of the game is simple, win.

The pot is what all poker players are after. This is essentially the chips representing money that has been bet for the hand. The game is played in a series of deals or hands and usually there is one winner each hand awarded the pot unless the game results in a tie, in this case the pot is distributed evenly amongst the winners. A dealer is appointed and a dealer button is placed in front of this player to represent a dealer.

This button takes a clockwise trip after each hand in order to swap the position of both the dealer and the blinds. In hold em poker there are two blinds, the big blind and the small blind. The small blind is placed by the player to the left of the dealer and the big blind is posted by the player sitting to the left of the small blind. These blinds are posted differently in the event of only two contestants remaining. The big blind is the value of the minimum bet and the small blind is usually half of the value of the big blind. In example:

The big blind is $10 which means the small blind will be $5. Each player is dealt two cards by the dealer which are known as your “pocket cards”. Being a “closed game” your cards are only revealed at showdown if at all. Show down is when you are at the end of the hand and you must show what cards you hold in order to determine a winner. Betting and raising commences before the first three community cards are placed on the table face up, known as the flop. A small bet is equal to the value of the big blind. So if your big blind is $4 then your bet must also be $4, a raise is equal to twice the big blind and is known as a big bet. After the “flop” another round of betting and raising takes place, players are more likely to bet more in this round due to having a better idea of how good of a hand they can make. A fourth community card is placed face up on the table, this is the “turn”. Once again players make their bets and after this the fifth and final community card is placed on the table, this is the “river”. At anytime during the game a player may “fold” their hand. This means that the player is no longer playing that hand and cannot win the pot.

The player will sit out until the next hand begins. A contestant may go “all in” which essentially means they are betting every chip they have. If this player loses they are no longer in the game and if they win they get all of their chips back and all the chips that have been bet. A great way to learn how to play Texas Hold em is by playing online poker as opposed to jumping straight into the deep end and going to a casino. Online poker provides an avenue for the skilled and beginners alike to participate in games against other opponents worldwide and beginners can play against others of their own skill level. Online poker offers people the ability to play anonymously and affordably gives you the ability to enter great tournaments without the added travel expenses. Visiting an online poker site will give you much insight into the game and you can play for either your own cash or play money which is worth no real monetary value which makes online poker and perfect avenue for beginners and the social player.

Evony in big trouble — Bruce On Games

Monday, 14. September 2009 12:54

Seeing as Evony is most likely classified as an “ online real time MMORPG game ” and NOT an “ online gambling service provider” such as an online poker site, I would guess this law does not apply here. ….. In addition, the number of RTS players is likely to exceed the number of people that play online video games
