Banker? According to the BANKER has about 1.2% more
"winning" combination than that of PLAYER. But BANKER has 5%
commission, therefore is it wiser to bet on PLAYER or BANKER?

I would go with BANKER. 5% commission on
1.2% winning edge equals 0.06 commission, which is peanuts. That

My advise on slots is start out KNOWING
you are not going to hit the progressive payout. If you need to
bet three coins to hit the progressive, only bet one, If you hit
what would have been the progressive payout on one the return is
still very good and if you feel lucky you will have plenty of
money to continue to play betting three. I hit the Cash Splash
Progressive at one of the Micro gaming casinos betting only one,
the payout is set at $800.00, on a $25.00 deposit that is still
a very nice return, and keep in mind on a 25.00 deposit at $3.00
a spin you are broke in 8 spins so betting 3.00 to me is not an
option until I am playing on their money. This really works on
many of the progressive games, but remember to always read the
payout schedule before pushing the button I played only one coin
on the Wow Pot progressive and hit it, one or two coins played
pay 0000, man did that frost me .
On non-progressive machines
I continue to change my bet until I find a combination that pays
then stay there, its better to win a little than to loose it
all! If I am betting large and no payout I go small (less lines
really is a better bet). If there is 15 line only bet on 7 to 9
GOOD LUCK GAMERS !
while you're ahead strategy
I know, I know....how many times have
we all been ahead and then we get greedy trying to "win a little
more before cashing out" only to lose it all...or worse
yet....that darned REVERSE WITHDRAWAL BUTTON!
piece of advice I learned was when you are ahead and have cashed
out at a casino, SIMPLY UNINSTALL THE PROGRAM during the period
of time that is required before the casino will submit the
withdrawal! i did this the other night at a new casino I
tried.....and am so glad I did. Otherwise, I would have been
tempted to reverse that withdrawal.
**Of course, I would
suggest you wait to uninstall until you have received a
confirmation email with the tracking # of your withdrawal from
the casino. Fortunately for me, I received that immediately
How to win at online poker?
The first thing you have to bear in mind is
that online poker is rigged. The online casino makes it's money
by raking or taking part of the pot. So the casino rigs games in
a several different ways to increase their rake.
some simple rules for playing online poker. If you obey them
you׳³ג€™׳’ג€ֲ¬׳’ג€ֲ¢ll immediately win!
1) Always play any hand and at
least take a look at the flop especially if you are UTG.
2) If you receive big hole cards (AA, KK, QQ, AKs, etc) be
cautious. If you flop a monster hand check the board and see if
anyone else could have the nuts or draw the nuts. If there is a
chance of someone getting a better hand it will probably happen.
3) Always chase flushes and straights. you will be surprised how
many you will hit on the river.
4) If you flop a straight
or a flush, fold immediately. If you flop a straight someone
will get a flush and if you flop a flush someone will get a full
5) If your stack is getting a little short, just
push all in. Chances are you will win regardless of what you
have. You do have to keep in mind that someone with a smaller or
equal stack may call you though.
Where to start for money
Hold'em is a tricky game, and it's really
difficult to gauge whether you're playing well, or not, simply
because it has that "any crap hand can win" luck factor.
On the subject of bonuses, there are differences between say,
Pacific Poker Bones, which tend to encourage you to play at
higher limits (bonuses are usually worked out on the amount you
stake) and the Inter/Will Hill/Empire/Party which are paid on
either the number of hours you play, or the number of hands
completed. Clearly, as a novice, you need the latter.
There's also a subtle, currency related difference in bonuses.
If you play at William Hill's GB׳²ֲ²ײ²ֲ£ site, you get ׳²ֲ²ײ²ֲ£5 an hour, but
at the us$ site it's $5 an hour. This is a significant
difference with the ׳²ֲ²ײ²ֲ£ approaching $1.90
It's might be
worth noting that the wager logic sites often email you re
additional bonus on certain days of the month, like say, an
extra $10 for pocket queens. They also give bad beat bones and
royal flush hand-outs. It's unlikely that you'll ever get a
royal, (I did once, but Murphy's law had me at another site that
didn't pay the damn bonus.) Anyway, the best thing to do, is be
patient, and wait until they're paying these special, date
specific bonuses, and only play whilst you're getting your ׳²ֲ²ײ²ֲ£5
per hour, and only play at the $1/$2 tables. This technique
should ensure that you don't loose too much at hold'em, and you
might win a bit, even if you're a novice. BTW, I don't follow my
own advice. But it would be the most logical thing to do.
"I have enough money to last me the rest
of my life unless I buy something." -Jackie Mason
"Big bet" means the larger bet in a fixed
limit game... in a $10/$20 game, the big bet is $20.
much you can make of course depends on the "quality" of the
competition, and how you win pots -- win several pots beating
one opponent in a tight game, win one pot in a loose game
against many opponents. In lower limit Los Angeles games you
might only be dealt 20 hands an hour, with everybody playing
ever hand. If you are playing right, you won't play very many
(meaning you wouldn't win very many too) but when you win you
win huge pots. In higher limit online games, it's not uncommon
to face one opponent, where what you both basically do is split
up the blinds. These different roads might even lead to the same
profit an hour.
Personally I never think about money
wagered as long as I stay within my bankroll. Then you just
decide which game is most profitable to you, or has other
reasons to play (most player's brains and stomachs would be
better off making $40.05 an hour in a passive game than $40.06
an hour in a wild game).

The most common mistake most
holdem players make?
Not taking advantage of their position.
Which is the smarter move. Raising with Ace-king in the blind or
raising with pocket tens one away from the button or on the
button. Although the ace-king is a slight favorite, heads up, in
the real world the tens will win more money. When the ace-king
gets a favorable flop he will win a small pot, but 3/4 of the
time he be forced to bluff or check and is really at the mercy
of the players following him. The pocket tens on the other hand
can bet or bluff depending on the nature of the hand. Even when
an over card flops you bet knowing your opposition puts you on a
better hand. When the betting makes it is obvious that you are
beaten, muck em. Calling that last bet, when you are beaten is
futile and expensive. Stay tuned, more tips on the fine art of
holdem will be forthcoming..
I play mainly No-Limit tourneys, and even
with a full table you'll often get into a position where you're
heads up with a showdown pre-flop. In these situations you've
got to know the power of a small pair.
If you're getting
short stacked and need to double up, a small pair is often the
time to take your chances.
If you can get heads up with
your small pair then your only fear is a bigger pair, against
everything else you're either a small fav or a big fav. You're
dream opponent will be a big stack trying to take you out and
calling with something like A5s, if you've got 66 in your hand
you'll be a 2-1 fav
You're actual point at the start of
this thread about AK vs TT and the position of play when your on
a full table is a lot more complicated. Is it a tourney or cash
game? Is it limit, pot or NL holdem? If it's a tourney then what
stage are you at, what's the blinds and what's the stack sizes
of the players? Are your opponents tight, aggressive, lose etc?
Even with a lot more info about the hand you'll often still get
the answer 'it depends' and that's what makes poker such a great
Bluffing....Look, I'm no expert, but I read
a lot...and this is the advice will I have read.
Basically, in a long handed game, say 7 or more players, you
really don't need to bluff. This is because with so many
players, someone is almost bound to have a hand that beats
yours, and is also prepared to call your bluff. So only play
strong hands. This is incredibly boring, as it means you play
about one hand in 12, and on a bad day, you might not play a
hand for well over half an hour at a time. This only play good
hands strategy isn't original or interesting, but it is
effective because for some reason I can't understand, few other
players stick to it, and few adjust their play to allow for your
It's still a good idea to bluff
sometimes, the idea isn't really to win anything out of it, but
almost to get caught bluffing. If you do this people will say
"Ah, that C.M. , he's a bit of a bluffer". This means that the
next time you play a hand, even if its a pair of AAs, people
will say "Ah, that C.M. , he's a bit of a bluffer" etc.
Hopefully they will raise against your bet on your impossibly
strong hand, & you clean up. Well that's the idea anyway. I
think it's probably best not to bluff more often that once in
every 10 or so hands that you play. That's a guess. I don't know
for sure. As you're only playing 1 in 12 hands, that means you
bluff about once every blue moon. But you get the idea.
In short handed games esp with 3 or less, then you need to bluff
a lot. In this sense, it means raising loads in order to
convince your opponent that you have a strong hand. Strangely,
because there are only a few players, if you have almost any
hand of any quality it probably is stronger anyway. This
tendency to raise a lot in short handed games makes them very
aggressive, so pref. should be avoided by the likes of us.
They're difficult to win, unless you really have a feel for the
game, which takes time. I'll give it another year for my ability
Because of all this, when selecting tables,
the thing I most look out for is full tables. They're easier for
enough money to last me the rest of my life unless I buy
something." -Jackie Mason
The way I see it, in limit poker there are
only two good times to bluff, the semi-bluff when you have a
four flush or open ended straight. In other words you have the
worst hand, but a very good chance of making the best hand.
Sometimes you have both , with 15 cards that can make your hand.
I particularly like having a pair and the flush draw. Of course
if it's the top pair, you are not bluffing. The other time to
bluff is the position bluff, when you are last or second last
and everyone has checked. I prefer to do this after the turn
card, too many players will call after the flop with over cards,
and the bigger bet on the turn discourages callers. Remember
they have no idea what you have, in their mind you could have
slow-played a set, or have made a set or two pair on the turn.
Some poor players can't be bluffed, so it's a good idea to know
if this type player is in the hand. Just the other day, I saw a
bluffer called , and the caller couldn't even beat an ace high,
which of course what the bettor had..
If you play low limit against more players,
then do not bluff or very rarely, because there are players who
never fold. If there are 1-2 opponents only, then of course you
have to bluff, when you feel your opponents do not have good
cards. If the pot is large, then the bluffing is bad idea,
because if the players fold, then they lose lot of money, so
some of them will call. If the pot is small, then the bluff can
be good. (I'm quite good low limit Hold'em player.)
Low Stakes Online Poker Great
Way to Learn
The key to winning in the higher stakes
game is one to have sufficient $ to outlast the inevitable
losing streak, in 10-20 I buy in with $500, but my total $ that
I can afford to lose is $4000, which I believe is a minimum.
Being a gentleman and a gracious loser are good qualities to
have, also. You are going to have monster hands beaten...I
actually lost a hand where I had four aces. It is burned in my
memory. I'm a terrible bluffer, but I will overcome this by
using an obvious tell. My right hand tremors due to an accident
some years ago. Early in the game I will use it throw my chips
when I have the nuts or near nuts. Later I use it when I bluff
or semi- bluff. More than 90% of the time I'm able to steal the
pot. A semi- bluff is like a four flush and a lower pair. Do not
be a calling station, your opponents will run over you. If you
have a hand your going check /call, it is best to bet. I
generally play only good cards, meaning tens or above in early
position, but have played many suited connectors late and on the
button. I make it a point to show my opponents these mediocre
hands, so that don't always assume I have big cards when I call
or raise. If the game is loose, play tight. If the game is tight
play loose. The idea is to keep your opponent guessing. Protect
the big blind, too, especially if there are no other players in
and the raiser is the button. I could write a book on this
subject, but others have done it better than I.E. have played
with some of the best and used to beat former WSOP champ the
late Bill Smith like a drum. He had an obvious tell, which I was
surprised no one else picked up on. Whenever he was dealt a
premium hand, he would take a drink from the ever present beer
and change body positions ever so slightly to make getting at
his chips easier. There are even tells in the online games, like
betting patterns. On true poker you can chat with your opponents
and can see if they they take a second or third peek at their
hole cards. Most realistic of the sites I've visited. I suggest
you download their software, and watch the real money games, it
is a great learning experience. You will soon be able to
identify tendencies of certain players and have a good idea of
what to expect when you actually get in the game...
Winning Tips I Use and Win
I play for Entertainment only, but there is a challenge to
playing and being able to deposit $50, or $25, then get
longevity in play for the small amount I deposit.
I also have
my own Rule set in place for playing, and that is to CASH OUT
when i get ahead, have it sent to my Neteller, then it gives me
money to deposit at other casino's (playing the same exact way),
then repeat what I did at the 1st casino. Also, it gives me
money to make more deals with to earn more GG's to play on.
First, there is no such thing as a HIGH bet, and A Max bet per
spin. NO-NO-NO !!!!!!
Bet sensible, bet small, hit many more
smaller wins, let them build up, then cash out- YES- CASH OUT.
I play 99% of the time at Micro Gaming casino's because my way
of playing goes very far, and I do cash out daily form #300 to
1k, sometimes more.
The last 4 days, between deals done(2)
and deposits at FL casino's, I spend only $50 of my own money to
get started, All the rest was from winnings at the 1st casino. I
cashed out over 4k in those 4 days, and still have $$ in 3 of
the casino's to play more later this week.
There is no
special time to play, because I won and built these winnings
during various times of the day/week/weekends. So, that is no
way put into my way of play.
The games I found that my way
works best are:
ISIS, Dolphins Tale, Dynamite, Loaded, Halo
weenies, and Thunderstruck. (in that order)
Play all lines. (ie 15/20/25/30/40 lines depending on the slot).
2. Play at 1(one) cent per line. (or 2 cents if brave).
EXPERT Mode set at 100 or more spins in auto mode.
per line: (I play 1 coin per line) sometimes when I double my
deposit in winnings, then I go to 2 coins per line bet.
ISIS is a 25 line slot, so my bet per spin of the slot is only
25 cents x 100 or more spins.
Here is the key for successful
winning at these games.
KEY= Free Spin Feature= In Dolphins
Tale and Loaded, and the best results for getting better payouts
are by choosing 25 spins in Dolphins Tale, and 25 spins in
I hit more wild symbols x5 or 5 of anything in
these selections giving you an automatic win of anywhere from
$25 up to $680 for just that 1 spin, then you have all the
remaining spins to go and win more.
When I finish all the
free spins, if my total is over $200, I go to the bank and cash
out 1/2 of what I won, then return to the same game.
plays the same way. I'm looking at other games and trying this
on, and it works with any of the games I have tried so far.
Believe me when I say I have tried playing at Max bet, max $$,
and I lost so fast, but the minute I went back to this way of
playing, I won, and I built it back up to where I was. So, play
smaller for longevity in play.
This way can win from a Bonus
of $10 won from here at , because I cashed out 1k from a $10 win
Playing this way I have played 3 days and cashed
out over $500, and still left $152 to play on later. (its still
in the casino).
I HOPE THIS WILL HELP YOU PLAY LONGER AT
MICRO GAMING CASINO'S, AND I REALLY WISH YOU LUCK IN GETTING
MORE VALUE FOR YOUR DOLLAR WHILE PLAYING.
Good LUCK to you
WIN BIG, but more importantly, have fun...
Now, I am testing ways of play
at other casino's like Hot Pepper and others to find easy ways
of winning there too.
A little note:
If you are playing at a Microgaming Casino that
has instant payment, then here is what to do. (you must have
made a deposit via Neteller and/or have Neteller as your
preference for payment)
You cash out and get the transaction
number, then go to main lobby, click on banking, it will bring
you back and show reverse- but, click on instant withdrawal, and
follow the info it shows (you want neteller, acct, etc), then
click finish and wait for it to process. Then it is instantly
there in neteller for you to use.
The minimum is $250 and the
max is $2500 for instant, and the balance will follow into
neteller the next day.
I do it every day as I cash out.
Good Luck to you.
I play on a $50 deposit only.
mostly Multi-Line slots, with feature bonus's and/or spins.
(favorites are: Loaded, Moonshine, and Casanova).
I will use
Loaded as an example:
I play 2 c (cents) per line, and play 3
coins per line for a total of 150 coins per spin.
I go into
expert and change it to 100 spins, then hit save and return to
I play 5 spins, just to see how the game is working
on my computer, then when it finishes I hit auto, and go into my
Usually before I get to 25 spins done I have get
the bonus spin feature, and I always take the 24 spins because I
win more in that one that the pother 2 choices.
night i was in the spins, had 19 spins to go and hit 24000 coins
for $480, and still was spinning. This 24 spins ended up with
$1123 so I went to cash out and cashed out $1000, and I am still
playing on the balance. Yes, I will cash out another $500 before
tonight is over..
Keep playing until you start cashing out,
and usually it won't be long before you do cash out.
play the same way on all of the machines that show coins instead
of $ amounts.
I will do the next one on playing the slots
where you see dollar and cents instead of coins.
You do not need to be a high roller to cash out, meaning wait
for a single win of $5000 or so........no way, because i can
have 10 or 15 $100 cash outs and still have that money ....
big win (to me) is like a bonus...Surprise me!!!
Good Luck and try this, it may help you get
more play for your dollar.
Texas Hold `Em Basics and How It
Works at Poker Rooms
There have been quite a few questions around here lately
about Texas Hold'Em because of the recent Tournament. I'm going
to try to answer as many as I can, and any further questions
about the game I can answer behind this post.
1. Texas Hold'Em is based on Regular Poker, except
for a few minor variations. In Regular 5-Card Poker, You try to
make the best hand possible out of your 5 cards that are dealt
Cards are in suits and numbers. Suits have no
ranking, but the numbers and letters do.
(from lowest to highest):
A 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 J(Jack)
Q(Queen) K(King) A(Ace) (Aces may be used high or low).
The possible hands are listed below (note that no two cards can
be the exact same (value & suit) at any time in your hand):
1. High card (lowest hand in poker): No 2 cards alike, unsuited.
Use the highest card in your hand.
2. Pair (Beats high card):
2 like cards, with 3 other unlike cards (i.e., A A 7 3 9).
Two Pair (Beats a pair): 2 sets of 2 like cards (each set
different from the other), with one card unlike the other sets
(i.e., 7 7 A A J).
4. 3 of a Kind (Beats two pair): 3 cards
all alike, with two unlike cards (i.e., Q Q Q 8 3)
Straight (Beats 3 of a kind): 5 consecutive cards, unsuited. A
suited straight is a straight flush. (i.e., 2H 3H 4D 5C 6S)
6. Flush (Beats straight): 5 cards all of the same suit, not
consecutive. (i.e., 6 of Diamonds, 8 of Diamonds, 4 of Diamonds,
A of Diamonds, J of Diamonds)
7. Full House (Beats flush): a
3 of a kind plus a pair. (i.e., 5 5 5 8 8)
8. 4 of a kind
(Beats full house): 4 like cards plus one unlike card (i.e., 10
10 10 10 K)
9. Straight Flush (Beats 4 of a kind): 5
consecutive suited cards (i.e., 7 8 9 10 J, all of clubs).
10. Royal Flush (beats straight flush): Essentially the highest
straight flush possible (i.e., A K Q J 10 of the same suit).
In No-Limit Texas Hold'Em, there are some slight differences in
the play of the game, however the hand rankings remain the same.
Before any cards are dealt, 2 people are "forced" to make a bet.
These people are called "blinds." The "small blind" must post
one-half of the required minimum bet, while the "big blind" must
post the entire minimum bet. Then, all players are dealt 2 cards
face down, so that only the player may see them. A round of
betting then occurs. Players at this time decide whether they're
in or out. Each player must post a bet equal to the big blind in
order to remain in the hand. If the player does not want to bet
this hand, s/he folds his/her cards and sits out the hand.
However, if a player wants to post a bet larger than the big
blind, they may do so. This is called "raising." The raise must
be equivalent to double the big blind or greater. All players
who wish to stay in must bet again or fold their cards. Once the
bet gets around to the big blind, they may choose to bet again
or "check," which means they do not want to raise their bet,
however, they want to stay in the hand.
At this time, all
chips are collected and placed in the center of the table. In a
regular game at an online poker room (player-vs-player), the
house at this time will take a percentage of the pot, known as a
"rake", as payment for its services of hosting the game
(explained in further detail below). Now, the top card on the
deck is "burned" (placed face-down and out of play) and 3
"community" cards (cards that can be used by everyone) are dealt
face-up. This is known as the "Flop."
Another round of
betting then occurs. Players may check if no bet is on the
table, bet at least the big blind, raise, or fold. After the
completion of betting, the chips are collected, the house will
take its rake, the top card is burned, and the fourth community
card will be dealt, known as the "Turn."
Another round of
betting occurs. After all bets are complete, the rake is taken,
another card is burned and the fifth and final community card is
dealt, known as the "river."
A final round of betting
then occurs. When all bets are complete, the players remaining
in the hand reveal their cards. However, if a player reveals
their cards before another and the player decides not to show
what they had, they may "muck" (leave the cards face-down and
pass them to the dealer) and let the other player take the pot.
If two or more players have the same hand that cannot be
improved by their hole cards (a community hand), then those
players shall split the pot. If players' hands are equal, but
not by a community hand, the tie shall be broken by using the
players' highest hole card. If these are also equal, then both
players will split the pot.
I am a player whom wants more
play for my depositing dollar..
So I have active accounts at more than 30 casino's, and 95% of
them i cash out anywhere from $500 up to over $28000, and all
done within a years period.
At first I played, won a little,
cashed out, then thought to myself that "gee, i have $800 now,
so if I reverse it, I can make it $1600, then I have more money.
My very 1st win was $750 and I cashed it out without
reversing it. Boy, was that Great to feel I got $700 above the
$50 i had deposited, and how easy it was to get it. WRONG AGAIN
Yes, it was easy, but, it was Luck shining on me.
second win was $4000, the very next day ! WOW, so, so, easy on
another $50 deposit...WOW, I can quit working and just gamble to
make wages and pay bills...WRONG!
The 3rd win (my favorite
one) was another $50 deposit, and because BIG JOHN here at Gone
Gambling kept showing his great wins playing Gopher Gold slot, I
played that one @ $2 bet and auto spin for 100 spins. I won
$24000 hitting all 5 eagles !!!! WOWOWEEEEE, that's almost
$30000 in less than a week ! For sure, time to quit working.
OK, there are allot more I could tell of, and all but
2 or 3 were total cash outs without any reversals what so ever.
99% of my wins have been on Micro gaming software, no special
time of day/week/ etc. The casino's have no control over the
software once it is installed and everybody has downloaded it.
Here are a few tips on when to cash out, and if you feel you
will want to reverse it and play more, then there is also a fail
safe way to do that too.
#1. Always go play in a positive
mood, and never think or say that you must win.....That will be
a down fall for you to lose for sure.
#2. Always play for
entertainment, and to relax, have some fun. Winning is a Bonus!
#3. Play within your means, not betting over your set limits for
#4. When playing, start with a deposit you are
comfortable with. (for me it is $50 max).
#5. Play at a
conservative amount: 1c,2c,5c,10c,etc and per line bet, and stay
with that bet.
When you change bets from 2c, then go to 10c,
then the games seem to change against you (but they really
haven't), because you are betting more, losing faster than you
were at 1c. (longevity of play)
#6. With a deposit of $50,
when you reach $150, then go to Banking, withdraw $100, then
return to the same game and play on your $50 you started with.
Keep doing this every time
you add $100 or more to your start money.
After an hour or 2,
you will have cashed out over $500 and you are still playing....
#7. When you lose that first $50, and (by now should have at
least $100 pending-or more), dis connect from the casino and DO
NOT go back for 2 days...
#8. The casino will put a hold of
24 to 48 hours from the time you hit withdraw before they pay
you. Thay do this because they know that 98% of the players do
reversals and lose it all back to them..
These are just a
few pointers that i use.
I hope they will help you cash out
and forget they have a reverse button..
I will do the next
post on how to play on $25 or $50 and cash out while playing for
Note: Here is the fail safe way to ensure you
do not reverse any cash out until you learn not to go back to
After you have lost, and have any cash out
pending, just uninstall the casino until you get the money paid.
Then, log back into gone gambling, use a link above the forum
and download the casino again, start playing..
I am pretty new to Money Maker
Machine(MMM) and have tested MMM last night
first time, playing for fun.
I've got a 'play for fun
capital' of $2k from the online casino.
when I woke up and checked the computer,
surprised to see nice profit.
And here are more
After some first small tests I decided to
let MMM run over the night hours.
I used exactly the
same settings for dynamic betting like MMM did in it's
example on the website.
It run fine, but later it
broke up because I couldn't answer the question for the
8th bet... black or red, since
I have got a timeout
from the casino ( I was sleeping during that time )
But I was already in plus with $203. So the machine
worked for me during I slept - sounds good.
the morning I have started another MMM run,
came to the point that I was asked by MMM software,
how to decide for the 8th bet: black or red,
accepted MMM's suggestion, and bingo - it was correct.
The program continued to run and produced more winning
bets for me.
Than, around 2 hours later, I came back
home from an appointment,
and found another black /
red request for the 8th bet. Timed out by casino
since I couldn't answer in time.
Balance at this time was a nice and surprising amount of
That's a profit of $275.
I guess it could
have been a much higher amount,
when I would have
been available to answer the questions.

Are Women Better Gamblers?
A study conducted by a Harvard medical school, using
statistics from leading Austrian online gaming company
Bwin, has revealed that high-stakes female gamblers who
bet over the Internet win more frequently than men.
The findings of the 40,499-person study 'favor women as
exhibiting more effective sports gambling behavior than
men,' wrote author Richard LaBrie and his team of
The results of the study, which
was partly funded by Bwin, is set to be published later
this year although it was initially released at the end
Conclusions reached by the study, which is
based on eight months of scrutinizing gambling patterns
at the Austrian bookmaker in 2005, include the fact that
women bet 15 percent more cash on average when compared
with their male counterparts and a finding that the
surveys largest bettors, i.e. women, were 50 percent
less likely to lose than smaller players.
hmmm, where to begin
Signed up to this casino a
couple of days ago, not one of the best bonuses on here,
but given a bit of luck it hads the possibility of being
one of the most profitable
I used the deposit code 400CLUB, this
being a 400% match up bonus up to a maximum of $800 with
a 30x wagering requirement (quite reasonable for this
size bonus) only problem was the bonus isn't
...so i deposited my $200, got
credited with $800 and set to work i played using the
well known and terrible method of doubling up, with the
aim of doubling my bank roll to $2000 and then cruising
to the finish until i had cleared the wagering
my betting method went (2 handed)
$5, then $10, then $25, then $55, then $120, then $250
started plodding away at it with the thought that my
$200 was ls ot from the start as I do with most
bonuses... got to about $5k wagered and had made
$360ish... Nice I'm thinking...
that's when the
first nasty down swing came, went on a massive run of
losses and went down to as little as $80, over the next
$2k of wagering like a maniac i pulled up to $1500ish
and called it a night.
the bonus the same way from the start, continuing my
betting, had a nice run $1700 with no major troubles,
$1800, thinking ooh I'm getting close, then started
getting a bit iffy as I approached $1900..... by this
point I had wagered about $10k
It's at this point
I must mention that although my aim was to double up my
starting BR i also wanted to have wagered at least 15x
before I started playing normal.
carried on, got to $1930ish and was just under $11k
wagered and then it happened.... nasty run of luck
wagered something like $4k in about 5 minutes and busted
out..... $1k or 2 short of my target and $70 short of my
so close yet so far...... still a
lot of potential nonetheless
I highly recommend this bonus if you are
feeling a bit daring ...
2 WAR STORIES
I already did my first casinos with
Golden Palace (+ $ 800) and Starluck (+ $700).
Wagered for sure to much to get the requirements met,
but had a fair streak of luck at both and seemed I
couldn't lose, so after betting 1s for a long time at BJ
I was up quite a bit at both sites I increased my bets
to 10 a hand and a few 25s a hand! I know this was risky
too, because it's easy to get caught up in the fire of
this game. So my advice is also to keep using the
strategies that you need to use with 1 or maybe 2 dollar
bets, till you are sure to make your WR and at least
walk away with a smile.
I did the
River Nile $1000 Free Play promotion and managed the
WR of 10x the free play amount and 100 bets, ending up
at 1500 or something, enough to get 200 transferred into
my bonus account. So I deposited the 40 Euro (in my
case) and got the bonus in my account the next day. I
managed to double up the total amount to around 500 Euro
with 50 Euro hands om BJ (only count 2% or 5%, but a
good game to try and double up) and after completing the
30x play through on American Roulette (counts 100%) I
still had about 400 Euro ($ 520)left in my account. I
played 1-18,19-36,red,black,odd,even and played just red
for a while with 2 dollar bets till I met the WR. Cashed
out the 400 Euro. With a 40 Euro deposit that's a nice
profit I would say.
In total my first 3
casinos and total winnings of + $ 2000 for about 5 days
|I'd say it is a
mistake, and it usually indicates a
conceptual error, but it is often
not large in magnitude.
One common conceptual error is failing
to recognize that a reprise may be
better. A reraise actually allows
you to work with the initial raiser
to knock out the blinds and limpers,
or at least to give them
unattractive odds. In limit, a
single raise does not protect a good
hand from many mediocre hands that
are getting a 50% discount.
Reraising increases your share of
the dead money in the pot, and may
be appropriate when you are
behind the range of the initial
In practice, many
casual players cold-call because
they don't care about the raise.
They usually have a hand that would
be better to fold. They have some
chances, but those are worth a bit
less than 2 small bets.
Common examples of when it may be
right to be the first cold-caller in
early or middle position are when
you have suited KQ, AQ, and AJ, and
can expect the pot to be multiway if
you cold-call. These suited hands do
not do well (or ar just ok) after
isolating an early position raiser,
but they are quite good in multiway
Calling a raise from
the small blind is similar to
cold-calling. Usually, reraising or
folding is better.
In no limit hold'em, flat calling a preflop raise is much more acceptable. The short version of why is that you can expect to win considerably more after the flop when you hit a big hand (or in some cases if you slow play your big hand preflop).
It's not just a trap or for
speculative hands. Reraising reopens
the action for the raiser. It's not
a big deal if someone caps in limit
after you 3-bet. It's just one small
bet, and you get a lot of
information for that. It can be a
disaster to let someone push in NL.
I don't think the term cold-call
should be used in NL to refer to
calling a preflop raise. Flat-call,
smooth-call, and just plain call can
be used instead.
Taking down the pot early
Say you raise preflop with AK. You get one or two
callers and the flop comes K74 rainbow. You bet say a
2/3 to a full pot. Both calls.
Why did the
villains called the preflop raise in the first place? Do
they call every raise or only when they have something
Why did they call you on the flop? Do you
almost always c-bet on the flop or do you only bet when
you hit something?
What type of hands would the
villains call the flop bet with? Would they raise with
two pair or more, would they raise a draw? Would they
fold if they have less than any of the above? Would they
call down to the river with any two cards?
big are the stacks?
What do they think you have,
based on this play and earlier hands?
How are you
going to continue on the turn and river when something
that completes a draw comes. When a blank comes?
This things and much, much more should be constantly
going through your mind every single hand you play.
It's not easy, but you really have to think about what
you and the other players are doing and act accordingly.
Then you have to decide if you are going to fold, call
or raise. And if you decide to bet: bet the amount that
accomplishes your goal for the given hand. No more, no
I am tired so I write way too much
instead of trying to answer your question in a simple
Don't fall in love with your two
cards! In my experience TPTK and similar hands,
shouldn't be played as the nuts. I have lost a LOT of
money on those hands, before I realized that people very
rarely make big raises against the preflop raiser(me) on
a board where it's obvious that I have TPTK or maybe
even an overpaid. If I meet too much resistance with a
TPTK-kind of hand without much additional outs, and I
have no specific reads that tells me that the villain is
a complete idiot, I'll try to get out and wait for a
better situation. This have saved me a lot of money.
That the player is winning "decently" is not the only
What people consider a
decent win rate varies from game to game, and person to
person. Winning 6 big blinds/100 hands is decent in a
tough online HSNL game. Winning 30 big blinds/100 hands
is decent in a soft online microstates game. The
difference changes the bankroll requirements by a factor
Multitabling does not intrinsically change
the bankroll requirements. However, those who play 10 or
more tables usually accept much lower win rates as
"decent" than those who play 1-4 tables at the same
The standard deviation varies
tremendously from player to player and game to game.
Some full ring players have a SD/100 of 60 big blinds or
less. Some shorthanded players have a SD/100 of 160 big
blinds or more. (See the stats threads in the strategy
forums.) This difference means a factor of 7 difference
in bankroll requirements for the same win rate.
Bankrolls also mean different things to different
people. If you can move down to a profitable game with
lower stakes, and are willing to do that when you hit a
downswing, then you can be safer with less. See the
question by Gonso that I answered for an example where
moving down can make someone as safe as though his
bankroll were multiplied by 5.5. Of course, for some
people (particularly those playing for low stakes),
busting out is a temporary inconvenience instead of a
disaster, which means that they can be far more
These are why 20 buy-ins can range
from overly conservative to dangerously unsafe, even for
"decent winners." Offering 20 buy-ins as advice to
everyone is like saying it is 4:00 whenever anyone asks
for the time.
Feel stuck in your game?
Here's what I did.
NOTHING!-I took a 6-week break
from poker...it was REALLY hard to do! Went to bars,
drank, girls, ya know- anything to get my mind off
poker. No poker books, no B&Ms, no ESPN or Travel
Channel poker, no TWO PLUS TWO!!!!
I got drunk
and lost my glasses twice and prolly spent well over a
grand in alcohol.
For the past week I've been
playing in 50 hand intervals and then evaluate my play
at the end of the session. This is something I wanted to
do in the beginning but for whatever reason- being stuck
in a game, having a great session, ect., ect. I rarely
Over my first 18k (pre-6 week break) I was
a break even player overall. 18/9/2
I'm back on
poker stars and only a few regulars are still there. I
guess the other regulars moved on.
My game is
micro limit limit hold em full ring.
I feel that
all the information from this site, all the books and
advice settled and I subconsciously formed my own style.
I've been playing three hundred hands a day for the past
three days and although I may be running got...I am
winning 7bb/100 with 400 hands being at .25c/.50c limit
and the balance at .10c/.20c. My stats over the 1,000
hands are 20/10/2.1 FINALLY!!! I was not really trying
to play 20/10 poker I just remembered stuff from the
past and used it to my advantage.
SSH and going to try to play one hundred hands a day. I
think I'm finally a winning player!
