  • Subtle Gear Changes to Improve Your Poker Game new
    Poker strategy is never black and white, or one size fits all, and your poker game shouldn't be either. In order to excel and take your game to the next level, you need to know how and why to change gears or strategies while you play. It's all about adapting your play to the table and player dynamics at any given point in the game. But there is more to it than simply switching from a TAG (tight-aggressive) or LAG (loose-aggressive) or maniac style! As with all strategies, you need to have a plan...

    Here is a hand i played at 5NL Zoom. My question is if my play on the flop is correct. After reviewing the hand off the table I thought that i eiter should've folded after his all-in, or called to see what would develop on the turn.

  • Casinos, poker, and blackjack card counting. My early years
    In 1978-1980, I was a craps dealer in Reno, Lake Tahoe, and Las Vegas before getting a legit job at the USPS. Before becoming a dealer, I loved playing poker with my Greek-American friends once a week before turning 21. Also sneaked into casinos and played poker before coming of age. One time I drove 6 hours from a Sons of Pericles and Maids of Athena lake party (a Greek-American fraternity and sorority and Junior Order of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association or AHEPA) at Mi...

  • I got Shit Canned from my Job
    So yesterday I got fired from my job. I had worked there just over one year, as a Customer Service Advisor for a large UK bookmaker in their call center Head Office. The reason they let me go was because I had been late six times, and also had six single day absences (sickness) since I started. To be fair two of those absences were self inflicted from killer hangovers, and I cited food poisoning as a reason. My argument was that they don’t even do sick pay for short term absence, so they were co...

  • A year passes by...
    A whole year has passed since I dusted off the computer and shared my poker experiences with the community. The main reason I haven't chose to share is simple, bad play. It's easy to write when you're winning but damn near impossible to recap your losses when you have no financial reason to share your downfall. After a quick and disappointing Colossus at the 2016 World Series of Poker ( QQ...

  • Casino Host Chips
    In the not-too-long-ago days of Las Vegas, your Casino Host was the man to know. They had the power of the pen and were generous with the RFB comps (Room, Food, and Beverage). They made you feel like a truly valued customer. Always happy to see you at their casino, they knew you were there to gamble, and gave little attention to today's obsession of tracking your play by computer and analyzing how much in comps you are entitled to receive. If you were there, you were playing, so you got comped a...

  • WSOP Tournament Chips
    I booked my trip to Las Vegas this week for the 48th annual World Series of Poker. I'll arrive on June 5th and stay 18 nights. I'm catching up on a few PFA podcasts and listened to one yesterday where Druff suggested that the WSOP should have more than 2 racks of tournament chips. These two items gave me the idea to write up a Rio/WSOP chip article. The first thing I did was to check the Nevada Gaming Control Board Gaming Commission website. Each month they publish the Chip and Token Report. Thi...

  • The Big and Small of It
    The Big We've all seen those Frisbee 500,000 and 1,000,000 WSOP tournament chips on the ESPN broadcasts. You've probably even handled a few oversized $1,000 chips in the pit or at the poker tables. These large chips are something of a novelty. They certainly stand out in the crowd. But did you know that a few casinos have produced oversized $1 chips? The standard casino chip has a diameter of 39mm. Oversized chips have a diameter of 43mm. Casinos generally order oversized chips as a means of pro...

  • Casino Chips with a Coin Inside!
    Most of us have played with clay, plastic, or ceramic casino chips, but there's a fourth type of chip that is slowly being phased out of play. These chips have a metal disc, or coin, visible in the center of the chip. Known as Coin-In-Center, or CIC chips, these chips have simply become too expensive to produce, lack the array of colorful design options that today's casino chips do, weigh more than the average 11.5 gram chip, and do not offer the sophisticated security features such as RFID, mic...

  • The Demise of the Snapper
    Well, by now you know that I've written several casino chip stories, so what on earth is a snapper? The $2.50 denomination chip used by casinos on the blackjack tables are known as a snapper. Most are pink, but I've seen colored snappers as well (insert jokes here). There are two competing stories on how snappers came to get their name -- both related to the table game where they're used. The Twin River Casino chip below will give you a hint. Wed, 28 Dec 2016, 06:33 am PST
