Poker – So Many Ways to Play and Now So Many Places!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water. That was the advertisement for the famous 1975 Stephen Spielberg film Jaws and one could argue they are about to be a few more sharks at sea.

The Ladbrokes Poker Cruise IV is taking place on January 22nd 2011. The Ladbrokes cruise will set sail from Fort Lauderdale, Florida stopping off at three different ‘exotic’ locations before returning to shore on the 29th of January.

The whole event takes place on board the largest cruise ship in the world, the ‘Oasis of the Seas’. Entry to this festival of poker can be either bought or won.

So what is on offer here? Well put it simply a three day event, the first two of which are of starting days and the third being a final to crown the King of the Waves. Also many other poker based events to keep all manner and level of poker player occupied for this eight day event.

This got me thinking about just how popular and accessible the game of mega88 is. Putting the glitz and glam of this event to one side, one has to accept this event as yet another example of just how popular and accessible poker is.

I mean here we have an example of poker being played on the seas, as it has been for years, but we a little imagination and some cleaver marketing a whole event has been born. Given this event is now in its fourth year and with the backing of bookmakers Ladbrokes one can assume the previous events have been a success.

So now I am wondering, where next for the game of poker? Where do we take the game now?

At the start of this article I quoted the advertisement for the film Jaws, well now I am borrowing the main phrase from Star Trek nonetheless, ‘Space the final frontier’.Sir Richard Branson is about to embark on the first commercial space flights with the birth of Virgin Galaxy. Access to space travel is about to become a whole lot easier, not cheap but easier nonetheless.

Now is this another opportunity presenting itself to promote the good old game of poker. Though the game doesn’t change, the way a tournament is targeted & marketed can and does change, so can we dare to dream of a new poker tournament amongst the stars.

Is it possible that one day we could witness the first intergalactic poker tournament. Granted zero gravity may pose some difficulty when trying to deal from the deck of cards or keeping them firmly face down on the poker table. I am sure though whichever entrepreneur chooses to follow this venture will have many issues to deal with.

As jovials go, how about recurring revenues from a casino slot machine? I have no idea how you would formulate a prize to entice the average punter to play the slot machine, but one thing is for sure, a prize is a prize.

The only issue is that a prize is unlikely to be won on a single hit, it is extremely unlikely, that someone will get a perfect flush on the slot machine. A lot of punters have tried to win the jackpot on slot machines and it just keeps on giving them money. Wouldn’t it be nice if it did happen, you might even be able to buy the shirt the winner did.

Knowing How to Heads Up Bet

Knowing How to Heads Up Bet

Knowing how to heads up bet is extremely important to your success as a poker player. The ability to do so differs greatly for cash games and tournaments, but you still need to be taking a look at what your opponent has to offer and what it means for you as a player. In the event you are left with no option, you will need to take the time to think things through carefully before making your move.

As a general rule of thumb, the later your position, the better off you are. If you are in the first few spots at the table, you are in an advantage over your opponents as there are fewer players behind you. Being in the last few spots is pretty much the worst place to be in poker. Behind many of the players at the table you are risking being raised by them, or worse, re-raised, which puts you back into a pot that you didn’t even begin with. Being in early position at the table is always a bad place to be.

Not only because you have no information on any of the others, but you also have to worry about being re-raised by someone. This is the number one reason why you want to keep your opponent in the fold, or out of the pot. They don’t want to give away any information with a raise so they will only raise with the best hands. The last thing you want to do with a raise is to encourage players to call with a wide range of hands.

So when is it a good time to make a raise? It’s best to do this with suited cards close to your hand, like ace Queen, ace Jack suited, and King Queen suited. These cards give you what is known as monster hipsters. If someone calls you here, you are probably not going to get a call on the flop. Champion poker players know that these types of hands win hands down in the end, so don’t be afraid to raise with these hands.

Another advantage of getting dealt ace queens and king queens is that they are queens and also cards that have a lot of flush potential. If you happen to hit a queen on the flop you can get a queen on the turn and maybe even a queen on the river if your opponents check to you. Similar to ace king, if you are not suited, these cards are best played in a wide range of situations, and suited cards are best used to make a big hand.

Suited connector cards are more powerful than most people think. The fact is, ace connectors can win hands down in the end when you draw out on somebody, and people are reluctant to raise with connectors because of the worry that they are drawing too much of their stack to a worse hand. The fact is, ace connectors are one of the best hands you can draw. The only problem is, other players know that too and will call you pre-flop raises even with weak hands, as long as you don’t make too much of a risky play and essentially become predictable.

For example, you are in the small blind and have pocket 7’s. It is folded around, so you make a three times the big blind raise. The player in the big blind makes the call. To your surprise, the small blind calls! He could have a pocket pair of queens or aces. What a weird play! Since he called your raise, you can assume that he has a hand that can beat yours. Since he called the big blind’s pre-flop raise, you can assume that he doesn’t have a high pocket pair, but rather a middle to middle pocket pair. In addition, the fact that the small blind called your raise gives you some idea that he didn’t have a big pocket pair, but was rather making a small sized bet on the flop.

The fact that other players are opponents to your style of play can sometimes keep you from getting all your chips in with the best hand, King Queen suited is an example of this. This is a hand that I still can’t get over how I played it.

I was sitting there half the half way through the DewaGG, having a good hand (which turned into a monster) and the rest of the table folding. Not a single player indicated that they had any strength behind their hands, not even close. When it got to me on the button, I kind of whimpered at myself, since it was apparent that I was out of position. I tried so desperately to hide the fact that I was struggling to process what I had in my hand. When it comes to retention, I don’t want a multi-way pot, I want a one on one pot, or even a heads up pot. Looking back at it, the poor play cost me more than it should have, since that particular players likely to be holding AK or AQ anyway.

Once Upon a Time in Online Gambling

Once Upon a Time in Online Gambling

In a world were everything is possible, how did gambling became the talk of the town? Easy money. One day millionaires.

Casino on Net is one of the earliest online casinos. It was established in 2001-2002 and licensed in 2003. Before gambling was made illegal on the Internet, this online casino was a trend in the industry. But in 2006 the court ruled that the online casino and the other prior gambling sites are legal, and people can gamble online again.

First online casinos were equipments put up by small companies. When these companies grew enough, they invested in larger and larger online casinos, which led to the current situation: Online gambling is growing continuously, simultaneously with the development of the Internet.

There is nothing like surprises about the new trend, Everyone expected that online gambling would be more or less connected to the conventional casinos. So everything was okay, because no one imagined that the Internet would offer software, services, and players as good as those equipments traditionally offered in the places where they were based.

This is also the case with online casinos, as the software and services company invests heavily in research and standards, leaving no stone unturned to make the players and their experience better.

The real question is: Until what will the people still do things the old way, will they throw everything at the internet?

Some statistics on online gamblers

  1. To what extent people are still gambling the old way, we can safely say that this is a small percentage of the total people that are involved in online gambling.
  2. The majority of the people that play online are under the age of 34. Most of them live in the US, and the UK is not their native country.
  3. The majority of those that play online are female.
  4. The majority of those that play online bingo are between the ages of 25 and 44.
  5. Only 5% of those that play online bingo are between the ages of 16 and 24, and the rest are between the ages of 45 and 59.
  6. Only 5% of those that play online bingo admit to have spent more than $100 in gambling in the previous year.
  7. From the answers given in the previous questions, you can interpretation that over half of those who play online bingo are addicted to the activity.

Even more revealing than the number of addicted people is the fact that even those who play less serious gambling related activities are finding themselves visiting online gambling websites. One possible explanation for this could be the easy access to online gambling sites, 24/7 access to the variety of online casinos, and the promotion offered by online casinos.

One thing is for sure, those who visit online Dewalive websites are there because of the promise of easy money, and nothing else. If they had any other reason they wouldn’t be gambling in the first place. The only thing possible explanation for their involvement is that they love to see other people happy, and sad or satisfied, feeling good or feeling sad.

Given this few observations, one can only conclude that online gambling will continue to grow until all there is left of it is a multitude of anonymous cents in the pockets of peoples’ blogs.

How To Spot A Vulnerable Horse Racing Favourite

How To Spot A Vulnerable Horse Racing Favourite

As the popularity of the betting exchanges grows, so more and more people are looking to profit from horse racing by laying horses to lose. But what is vulnerable?

Vulnerable means that the horse racing betting market is saturated with competitors, and the price in the market will grow more slowly than the price on Betfair, for example. As a result, rivals will constantly snap up the prices in the market, driving down the price on both sides of the market.

All Betfair horses are virtually worthless, but for the ‘best’ horse, at £10,000, you have to invest £10,000 to win £10,000 – these are 2.8 and 2.7 on Betfair, which are practically even money. So if you think a horse is worth £10,000, and it is being offered at £10,000, when you hear of a lay bet of £10,000, you can obviously think that the horse is not worth £10,000.

Many people believe that Lay Bets pay more than other bets. Firstly, if you lay a horse, you are challenging other users to match your lay stake – you are acting in the same way as you would in a bet. Secondly, laying a horse, in itself, is risky. It is called ‘ laying the favourite ‘ because you are betting that the horse will not win, whereas in bet betting, you can simply back the horse to win. Many horses run in races with only one runner, so we never find a favourite available to lay in these races.

Therefore, laying a horse, in itself, is a risky business. For this reason, many professional traders try and create systems or programs to identify when horses are viable to lay and when they are not. However, there are no systems which identify when a horse is not suitable for a lay bet.

Placing Lay Bets on Betfair

Lay bets are typically expressed as a fractional figure. By laying a horse, you are effectively handing that horse over to the betting exchange, so the amount you lay is the amount of money you are willing to lose. When you lay a horse, you give up your lay claim, so the amount you are entitled to get back is the whole of your stake plus the free stakes.

When you lay a horse, you give up your backing claim, so the amount of money you are entitled to get back is the whole of your free stake. However, any money you pay to the bookie in excess of the free stake money may be nibbling away at your profit, and cause you to have a less than optimum outcome (you may be less than optimum, but bet to 128.199.107.129).

MUSL is the same concept, except that the stake won’t be nibbling away at your profit. The whole point of muslim betting is that, whilst you give up some of the money you bet on the horse, you are genuinely independent of the outcome.

The odds market is a very tough one, because muslim handicapping methods are themselves a form of arbitrage.

When you spot an arb in an outcome, you back into the market, where the price is far less than the actual chance of the selection coming first or second. In this instance, muslim betting carries a really big risk – you could lose your bet!

An outcome with a very low level of certainty will involve very low odds, whereas for an outcome with a greater level of certainty, you would back that horse or team in preference to the one at a shorter price.

To work out what the optimal lay bet is for a particular selection, you need to work out the lowest price available at the betting exchange, and subtract the weight of money devoted to it on the exchanges, giving you the net price you want.

advertise horse races on all the major betting exchanges, such as Betfair and Betdaq – they advertise horse races and give you the chance to back or lay horses which are going to win or lose on the exchanges.

If you are serious about working out what the optimal lay bet is for a horse race, you are probably going to have to either take the method in the bookie’s favour, or work it out yourself. Either way, you are going to have to make some big bucks to make your horse race betting hobby profitable!

Recent studies have shown that profitable sports betting averages about 8 wins for each losing bet from a total of 14 bets made. Obviously, you can’t win all of the time, and even if you do win at times, the sheer small percentage of wins will soon dry up.

What you need to do is center all your betting around three to four races a day. Each time, only place one bet on each selection, but always bet on the same selection.

How to Quarter the Pot Before Going To All In

How to Quarter the Pot Before Going To All In

What is the most difficult decision you have to make in a poker match? That is when your opponent decides to go all in. In simple terms, what does it mean when your opponent decides to quarter the pot? It means that your opponent is making a half-hearted attempt at getting you to fold.

This is seen usually in situations where your opponent has a strong hand and wants to get the pot odds to be in his favor. Let’s say, for example you have AA and your opponent has Q9. Most likely your opponent will think that you have the best hand available and he will try to make the best hand and induce you to fold.

If you think that your hand is beat, you can call your opponent’s half-hearted attempt at getting you to fold. But, if you are beat, you can also call him because you are out of position. In this case, if he puts in half the amount that you have put in, you will win the entire pot. This enables you to be the one to act in the current betting round, which is typically more profitable for you.

However, if you want to quarters the pot, you have to do it in increments. If your opponent is willing to put in 1/4 of the amount that you have put in, you can not put in anything and only hope that you will win 1/4 of the pot. In this case, you would not be getting any value for your hand and it would not be beneficial to you to continue playing.

The general rule regarding quartering the pot is that you should only quarter the pot in order to try to get your opponent to commit a huge amount of his stack to the pot. If you want to half the pot, you want to give your opponent a context in which to put in a bigger amount of money.

You do this by starting off the betting round with a bet that is relatively cheap. Let’s say you start off the betting with 10 cents. If your opponent puts in half of that the pot, you can call him without any fear of losing your hand. This is because if you were to call and lose, you would only have 9 cents left, whereas if you called and did not lose, you have 95 cents left. So essentially you are risking 10 cents in order to gain 95 cents.

Now, there are additional, smaller bets that you can make in order to try to get your opponent to commit more money to the pot. These are typically done in order to get maximum value for your hand. Obviously, if you own a better hand, you want your opponent to fold as soon as possible. This is why you should call him or try to induce him to fold early in the game.

However, you don’t necessarily have to do this with a monster hand. In fact, it is better if you don’t have a lot of knowledge of poker and you are just trying to steal the blinds. Once in a while, it is alright to show your hand then, at least you can put your opponent on a hand. However, making your hand known at this time may cause some confusion later on, so it is better to avoid.

There are some poker players who are very good at reading their opponents. They are able to distinguishing and analyzing the hand of their opponents. They are experts at figuring out what the opponent’s hand is unless the opponent himself gimmicks his hand. These players know when their hand is weak and time to fold.

Here some techniques on how to quarter the pot. Pick a round where you think your opponent is a lot weaker than you. Time to go to them. If you pick a round that is more vulnerable to wild card turns than you, then you can go to your opponent and try to make him commit a lot of his chips to see whether he has a better hand than you, with a semi-bluff.

It is extremely important to understand that in order to execute a semi-bluff, you will first have to plan to commit your chips to the pot. You might even want to pick a spot where you think your opponent is a lot weaker than you, yet you can still win the pot. An example: your opponent is a lot stronger than you in a 7meter game, yet you think he is a lot weaker than you, so you want to commit your chips to the pot because you think you can still beat him.

The time to semi-bluff is when you think that your opponent is weak, but you have a better hand than him. However, you don’t want to overdo it and bet too aggressively because it will drive your opponent away. It is better to just ease off a little bit and let your opponent make a mistake, then re-raise back and push him around a little bit if you think he is weak.

A Selection of Women’s Poker Dollars

When playing poker, it is important to remember that the biggest spenders are in fact, men. Statistics confirm that 98% of poker players are men. Within that group, however, exists a notably smaller percentage of women. There is something refreshing about women not wasting their time in the casino. Also, spending a bit of time away from the guys tends to loosen up thePG millions in the ladies.

PG women certainly don’t have to worry about their male counterparts losing their balls. In fact, men seem to be quite delighted about the fact that women present such tempting alternatives. This can be credited to the fact that women are seeking and seeking the best poker spenders in the game.

It is quite understandable that men enjoy such light entertainment. After all, poker is no doubt a sport for MALE poker players. Indeed, some poker players truly thrive in this card game alone.

It is rare to see women poker players raising their female with other men. The reason is because poker is still perceived by men as a game that is won by the man. Interestingly, though women have had no way to compete in poker, the game still rests on the skills of the players. And rightly so, because men are natural born card players.

Women, on the other hand, when they learn of their ability to generate poker points, look for ways to use that skill in their favour. That’s why you will find that women players are seeking ways to make it aOthersGamble.

To women, gambling is nothing more than a well thought out plan to spend their money for gambling. They know that gambling, when done properly, is a source of entertainment and nothing more. Gamblers, when ranked according to the LQ statistical parameter, are 6% more likely to be losers than winners in the long run.

The least favourite games for gambling are cards games. Although online bola88 games are getting more popularity, women prefer to wager in offline games. The reason is that poker, though a game of skill, is still perceived by many as a game of luck. Moreover, men seem to think that women who win are ‘ luckier than others.’

Playing skill based poker such as poker for money is quite a lot different than playing poker just for rush of adrenaline. Any time one spends gambling is a time when they can invest in something that they know they will enjoy. Sitting in front of the computer, in front of the television, or travelling far away places to gamble usually means that the person is without any negative emotional associations. Yet gambling is a habit that can psychological people who are afraid that they will get addicted and lose control.

Due to this, women are much more likely to be addicted to gambling than men. Studies have shown that female gamblers use lessLimit than men do.

So, gambling certainly looks set to continue its streak of Julius Ballosque individuals winning at their chosen fields of activity. And with the number of women increasing in gambling, it doesn’t seem that the streak will slow down any time soon.

No Limit - What is a Bad Beat

No Limit – What is a Bad Beat?

In a previous article, I talked about all the things that really annoyed me in the world of poker. It’s only natural that after playing poker for a long time, you start to sort of get used to things. You get comfortable in the world of poker, and when things start getting tough, you start to get stressed. That’s a natural human tendency. It’s also a tendency that can cause huge problems in your poker game.

When things get tough at the poker table, the natural reaction is to believe that it’s going to get tougher than ever before, and that you’re going to lose again, and again, and again. The natural human tendency is to say ” Well, if I don’t do something, I’ll never win!” Yet, you fail to realize that the only way you’ll ever be able to become un-oughened is if you stop making the same mistakes.

If you get a bad beat, more than likely, you’re going to feel it. It may be called a “bad beat” as opposed to a “bad plunge.” However, regardless of how you feel about the suck-out, you are still going to have to deal with it. You feel like you let a huge load of chips go there, and you want to go back and do anything but feel that way.

The natural human tendency is to struggle to get back to even. If you understand this, you’ll have more success in getting back what you have lost. Similarly, if you don’t make mental notes of the tight and aggressive players at your table, you will struggle in moving beyond your past mistakes.

If you’re dealing with a tons of junk going on at your table, you’re going to struggle. That’s a fact. You may feel unbeatable because you’ve got a lot of chips, or you’re used to having more chips than anybody else at the table, but if you don’t deal with the activity at hand, you’ll continue to feel that way.

There’s a lot to deal with when you’re in a tough spot at the poker table. If you don’t bring sufficient goods to the poker table, you’re going to struggle. Likewise, if you bring a sufficient quantity of good chips to the poker table, you’ll have a better chance of getting those chips into the pot when you need them.

Finding “Dewabet” chips is the difficulty in getting back what you have lost. If you don’t want those kinds of difficult situations, you have to be prepared for them. You’ll need to have a supply of chips waiting for when you’re in a tough spot. When you’re not yet making any money playing poker, you can get yourself a little pre-planned money reserve.

A poker player is a risk taker. He is someone who is willing to put extra energy and effort into the game. He is someone who is willing to take a chance. And most of all, he is someone who is determined to do whatever it takes to win.

You can’t outplay a big bankroll or a big stack. You can’t bully your way to the final table if your tournament payoffs are small. You can’t play any old tournaments you want, unless it’s a sizable buy-in for your own benefit. And you better have a big stack, or the other players at your table will be impressed with your abilities and probably take more risks against you.

On the other hand, the really expensive tournaments with $1,000 starting chips may or may not be the best way to learn and practice poker. You can get a lot of valuable experience for a small investment, and you can have some fun while you’re doing it. But you’ll need to make a big enough investment to take home aual prizes.

The thing to remember is that most of the profitable poker strategies will involve becoming a better player. And a better player will cost more than a poor player. Poor players almost always lose, and the ones that lose don’t really lose that much. They might have to go without food for a few days, but a great player can make a lot of money.

Finally, the really expensive tournaments are the ones you really want to try your hand at. Even if you lose money in these games, you’re probably not losing very much. You could probably earn back the money you lost, you might even be up quite a bit in profit. So if you can afford the fee, go for it.

Tournaments that cost more than $1,000 are very difficult to win, and even if you make back your $1,000 (and probably a lot more), you’re probably still going to lose at least another $1,000 making the game essentially unprofitable.

How to Win a Poker Tournament – 3 Poker Plays That Win

You may know how to win a MPO777 tournament in theory, but how do you actually do it in the field? I’m going to describe here a few moves that I actually use when I get into a tournament. These moves will not make you a winning tournament player, but they will make you a more patient player, which will increase your chances of winning.

The First Plays in a Poker Tournament

For the first couple rounds, you want to play very tight. The blinds are so low in the beginning that you don’t want to risk chips with bad hands. There’s nothing worse than getting a low pocket pair and having people call with AJ, so you want to just call all the time. Even with the right hand, like AK, AQ, you want to stay in the hand only if you can limp in cheap. When you hit the right hand (with AK, for example) then you want to be in the pot to see the flop.

When you hit the flop, you’re in a different position. This is where patience plays a big part in your decision making. If you just hit a set, you want to make sure that you don’t slow play too much money. You don’t want to be taken advantage of when you hit a set, since you’ve got a pocket pair. Take those sixty or so dollars and use them to try and win the tournament. Don’t slow it down or you will end up being called in those situations where you really think you have the better hand.

The Second Plays In a Poker Tournament

So, you got yourself to the second round. Time to play some hands. Again, with AA and AK, you want to be in the pot only with one pair. That makes it easier to push two other players off the hand. If you flop a set, you can get two players with sets to fold, which will save you a lot of money. You also want to be heads-up in the hand. This is especially important with the advent of turbo and super turbo tournaments. You will not get these tournaments very often, so when you do get them, the stakes are going to be extremely high.

So, don’t be afraid to play your hand if you think you are behind or on a draw. You never know, you may be drawing out to an open ended straight, which will make it very expensive for the others to catch up.

Strategies To Winning A Poker Tournament

Reading opponents is the hardest part of any strategy to apply in a tournament. You are watching less experienced players to try and understand them. This means you will probably get confused when they put their hand so forward. One strategy to use to chase the players drawing hand, is to not let it scare you. If you do not call the bet, you are giving your opponents a free card.

Always take your time in making a decision when you know you are behind. Don’t call a bet or raise when you are almost sure you are going to lose.

Play some wild hands, like suited connectors, high cards, high pairs, etc. and other hands that you are not nearly as confident with. This is a good strategy, because you want to build a big pot. You want to keep your flop hands second to free throwing ones.

Instant Lottery Tickets – How To Make Money With Losing Lottery Tickets

Buying and scratching instant lottery tickets is something that almost everyone has done at one time or another. For some folks it’s probably something they do too often. I guess for me, the bad buying habit is junk food. If I had spent my Saturday nights in front of the TV watching random drawings, I may end up getting addicted to the lottery.

Here’s what I’ve learned about instant lottery tickets over the years:

  1. They cost a lot more than the instant you buy tickets from your local convenience store.
  2. Most instant lottery tickets have an initial $1, $2, $5, $10, and sometimes $20 cap on the amount of the prize you can win. But if you buy the $20 cap ticket, the actual payout is usually closer to $15, or even $30 or more. A $20 cap on the amount of the prize also means that there’s less money available to win a larger payout.
  3. The lower the cost of the ticket, the higher the payout.
  4. The higher the cost of the ticket, the lower the payout.

If you’re lucky enough to win the $200 cap prize on a $1, $2, $5, $10, or $20 game, for example, you can expect to get about $2,000, $4,000, $8,000, $16,000, and $32,000 (in case the game has larger jackpots). However, if you buy the $20 cap prize, the payout is usually closer to $1000, and even $20,000.

The reason to buy the most expensive ticket is the fact that the odds are less. The lower the cost of the ticket, the higher the payout odds. So if you can’t afford $20, you should probably invest in instant lottery tickets that are closer to the $10 or $20 mark.

Also, when you buy the higher priced tickets, you open yourself up to more possibilities. If you win the jackpot, you can probably get a bigger payout. However, if you don’t win the jackpot, you can still obtain relatively good prizes.

The Take Home Payouts For Big Jackpot Games

For the big games, like Dewatogel or Mega Millions, you normally win the jackpot. So if you buy a $20 instant lottery ticket, the highest payout you can take home is $200.

However, the $20 tickets often have a second and smaller payout. The smaller payout is usually available if you buy the least expensive ticket.

For example, if you buy a $20 instant ticket, you win the Powerball jackpot. However, the smaller payout available when you buy the $20 ticket is $10. For this reason, you should most likely avoid purchasing the $20 tickets and stick with the $10 tickets, unless you really like the numbers.

Avoiding Buying Too Many Games

100 games isn’t enough. You may think the more games you buy, the better your chances are of winning. However, the chances of winning are no better than 50%. So, no matter how many games you buy, your chances of winning still remain the same.

The secret is to research and better your choices. If you really like a certain game, then do research and find the best game (without spending a lot of money) to play. In addition, by avoiding the jackpot entirely, you may actually win money.

However, most of these strategies are based on myths and old beloved techniques that most of the gaming public believe in. In reality, you have only yourself to blame for not winning at blackjack.

To win at blackjack, you need to beat the dealer or hope that the next card will bust the dealer. If you bust, you lose, it’s as simple as that. But if you don’t, you can still win!

However you choose to play blackjack, there is no doubt that playing like this is a great feeling, but you need to know the reality for what it is. Yes, the house does win at blackjack time and time again, but there are ways that you can lower the house edge and increase your chances of winning so that you can actually beat the casinos in the long run.

Card counting is, perhaps, the best known of all the blackjack strategies. This strategy was first discovered by Edward Thorpe’s in his 1962 book ‘Beat the Dealer’. However, people over the years have made many that feel that card counting is impossible, in the face of all the mathematics that needs to be satisfied for it to work.

Card counting, if you don’t know, is the process of assigning numerical values to the cards that you see the dealer receive. If you know what cards are on the table, then you know what chances the remaining cards have of being dealt to the dealer.

The idea is quite simple, with many rewards. First of all, as a player you get to be in charge of your own game. This means that you have a greater chance of winning, because you have a greater control of the cards than the dealer does.

Second, you can make better decisions as to how to split your cards, and when to double down. If the cards are distributed approximately 50-50, you double down on your 2nd card, regardless of the face value. This is great for the players, because the house only offers 1 to 1, or even zero, on both the dealer’s and your cards.

plying back, the house’s advantage begins with what is known as the ‘True Count’. This is the amount of cards that are in the deck and still available to be dealt, cards that will not help you. In other words, Las Vegas has a ‘Better than Even’ advantage over the player, yet the player can still win, provided that the casino gets a lucky streak.

Unfortunately card counting is not illegal, although it can get you kicked out of casinos. And, when you get caught you may well be threatened with legal action, so, while it is still fun to try, take a pen and note pad and write down the dealers worst possible scenario.

Two of the best blackjack strategies are to make very low bets and to increase your bets steadily. Both of these techniques are pretty much scams because no matter how low your bets, when you hit, you can still lose, you can still lose a lot. Also, if your betting very low, there is less chance that the casino will win your money.

‘Comporting’ Columbia University Professor, Lawrence M. Kahn has published a book in recent years, called ‘You Don’t Have To Card Count To Win Blackjack’. Kahn lays out a rather simple, but effective strategy on how to go about playing blackjack, even if you’re not a card counter.

Although he never played blackjack himself, Kahn has made a lot of money as a professional gambler, and now devotes a substantial amount of time to teaching others how to make the same kind of money, from the comfort of their homes, from the comfort of their homes.
