What’s your take on Bulldozers

Monday, July 6th, 2009

Everyone has a different view on Bulldozers in the game, some will leave the table, some will want them on the left and some will want them on the right. What’s your take on bulldozers at the poker table?
Personally I love to have a bulldozer directly to the left of me, this leaves him open for a little stunt I pull every time. He will of course defend his blinds if I bet into him preflop if I’m on the button or if I’m small blind (this stunt works with anyone defending their blinds to hard but it’s better with a bulldozer because you can sort of do the same thing even when he’s not on the blinds). I realize that I’m building this trick up a little to much as it’s not the most amazing poker play you have ever seen but it has one good quality, it’s certain money.
It will cost you a little to set this up both in time and money,  you have to try and steal the blinds a number of times and fail. Don’t try to hard because you don’t want to drop to much money in to the pot. If he folds, fine, you got the blinds, it was not really intended but it can happen. Usually though he will either call or raise (he is a bulldozer after all) and if he calls, play the hand passively afterwards, fold to any bet if you don’t hit a good hand, never bet. If he raises, fold fast.
Keep doing this until you get a hand and when you do, slow play him like if you were at a shuffleboard game. Check if you can, call with lots of tought and I promis you he will bet big. He might not bet big on the flop, he might not do it on the turn but he will bet big on the river. The best part is that you can do this over and over again, he will think that he is outplaying you all the time yet money somehow seeps in to your stack.
This is how I like to do it, how do you like it?

Legend of the Drunken Master

Friday, March 20th, 2009

Legend of the drunken master - girlIf you’ve ever seen the old Hong Kong flick, the Legend of the Drunken Master you know something that a lot of fighters don’t know, some people are better when drunk.

There are some of us that play better poker when drinking as well, I would not promote this as a strategy but for some reason it is true.  Maybe it’s the old relaxing theory, maybe it’s something else but I have a totally different idea. Alcohol makes you really, really smart.  This might seem weird to you becaue you’ve been told by really smart people all your life that alcohol is bad for you. They wouldn’t say that if it actually makes you a genius?The truth is that they would. If you have an edge on your opponent, there is a tell or you he tilts badly after every lost hand, would you try to keep that edge? I think you would because the world is a competitive place. If you would happen to be one of the really smart people, getting the best grades, having the highest salary around, would you go around telling people how you became so smart?


The truth is that if you did you wouldn’t be all that amazing anymore, your grades would be averege and sooner or later som young punk would steal your job because you would be mediocre. Really smart people understands this.

There is all the reason in the world for really smart people to keep the rest of the people in the world dumb. They will protect their domain as best they can and being really smart they would probably come up with an amazing scheme. We are very close to the truth now because this is exactly what is going on in our world today, alcohol makes you smart and the evidence is flawless, smart people tell us the opposite.

The next time you sit down at a table and there’s one of those guys that always keeps a glass of free alcohol in his hands, he might be a card counting brainiac so watch out.

Good players never get lucky

Friday, March 13th, 2009

Are you one of those players that have a constant bad luck? Is your hand always the better when you go all in and does your opponent always aout draw you? There is a very simple explanation to this and it has nothing to do with luck.
We have all seen them throw a tantrum at the table, the players that actually are good but their temper makes them go on tilt every time they lose a hand on the river. We have them at the home games and we have them on tv when we watch the pros play. They complain that everyone else is lucky and they never get to win a hand on luck. Maybe you’re even one yourself and let me tell you, it can cripple your game.

Raging titl?If you on the other hand understand why it’s actually true, good players are lucky less than the beginners, maybe you can stay calm and prevent that raging tilt. It’s all about simple statistics, if you are the better player you will not get lucky, the worse player you are the more room there is for luck.  This is quite the opposite of sports where good players can opt to have more luck (or more random events being in their favor) First of all we need to remember that poker is a game of odds. If you go all in when you have the better hand you might have 70% chance of winning or with an even better hand 80%.

If you have your opponent pinned with a flush draw after turn and you already hit the straight he has about 25% chance to hit that missing card. You have a massive advantage of 75% chance of winning. You did everything right, this was a good play from you, 75% is about as good as it gets but remember he still has 25% chance to win. He will win 1 out of 4 showdowns like this and he will be lucky every time he wins.

You on the other hand will win 3 out of 4 and none of your wins will be lucky because you had the best hand. If this is constant, you are the better player and you will never win a hand on luck. Your opponent will though, he will win 25% of all hands on pure luck and that is due to the very simple reason that statistics demand him to win some hands.

Comparing Play money Backgammon to Play money Poker

Monday, December 15th, 2008

If you like me have played a lot of poker you know that play money is more or less useless. Betting play money isn’t the same as betting real money.In No limit hold’em this is extra obvious as it is actually a good strategy to go all in with almost anything just to double up. This because you have nothing to fear. Calling an all in with 9, 6 offsuit isn’t as stupid as it sounds as you might double up and the cost is nothing. Play money poker made me think play money is stupid in general but I have actually changed that opinion.Play Money Backgammon table from True Money Games Play money Backgammon is actually a real game even though the money is fake, yes play money players tend to double a bit on the wild side but it doesn’t destroy the game as it does in poker. Someone always accepting the double in backgammon does a lot less damage to the game than someone always calling every raise in poker. The doubling is only a minor part of the game in backgammon and more of a traditional bet on who’s going to win. If you feel secure that you will win you double. Betting in poker though is the game, if you take that out of it and go all in all the time poker is one of the most boring games in the world. Just getting 7 cards and trying to get the best hand is more of a kids game than a proper game. 

From my perspective play money backgammon is actually fun (even though I hardly ever win even against play money players). It’s really worth a shot playing. 

Want to become a Porno Star?

What kind of tournaments have you seen in world of online poker?

In championships of poker the majority of participants are there to show their level of skill in the game. The best way to do that is joining a league, where you will find other good players who also want to show their skills and competitive instincts. Last but not least, in the end of all this you have the enormous prizes.

Championships are fun, emotional and make you want to prove that you are the best among all other competitors that are there and the odds are always an attraction for those who play and those attending the events.

There are championships every week so whether you are an amateur or a professional there is always somewhere to play.

But what to do when that is not interesting anymore and when you actually goal is to become a porn actor? The Swank Poker joined the industry of online sex and if you are 18 years or older this might be something for you. The promotions include supply of condoms for a year, international trips to brothels, erotic videos or what about a whole day with an escort girl? The imagination of Swank Poker is definitely not lacking.

The site has created a league that its members take very seriously. The championship gives the winner the chance to be a part of an adult film and guess what – it is a success!

The advantage in this promotion for those players more timid is that the site gives the option of doing the filming of the sex scenes using a mask which helps even more to promote the championship.

The poker is increasingly being associated with sex. The Strip Poker is a fever among many players of poker and is now available on the internet and electronic games for curious.

But who would have said that a site for online poker could have as much success as putting a championship together rewarding you with a place in a adult movie as the main prize?

Well, I bet you have seen nothing yet – what’s next?

James Bond – No Limit

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

The story of James Bond also known as 007 began in books. The first story, written by the writer Ian Fleming is entitled Casino Royale and was published in 1953.

Ian Fleming was inspired by himself to write the story of James Bond, as Ian was a secret agent of the British government during World War II, fascinated by betting and games together with luck with the women – doesn’t that remind one of 007?

The name James Bond was inspired by the name of the author of the book (Birds of the West Indies) that Ian read while traveling to Jamaica on vacation.

The story of the first book of the James Bond saga is about before he was promoted to be a 007 Agent with license to kill. In his first mission, James Bond goes to Montenegro to face Le Chiffre (the villain of the story) in a game of poker in the famous casino called Casino Royale. There are currently 22 James Bond films including the missions and stories of Agent 007. The first film was released in 1962. It was called Dr. No and starred at first Agent 007 – namely Sean Connery.


James Bond

Casino Royale is the 21th movie in the series of James Bond and in 2006 Daniel Craig became the sixth actor to interpret James Bond with Casino Royale which marked his debut in the role of Agent 007.

Casino Royal was produced in 2006, but is actually a prequel to the whole series as the movie is the first story in a beginning saga of the James Bond with the codename 007.

In this movie, as well as in the book, James Bond needs to go to Casino Royale in Montenegro to play a game of poker – in this movie against Le Chiffre, played by Danish Mads Mikkelsen.

It is the sixth time that the casino in Montenegro is shown in the official Bond films and the scene where Bond and Le Chiffre is heads-up will certainly be a classic in cinema, which once again shows the great importance poker as a competitive game of cards in the world has.
