10 Great Gift Ideas For Father's Day

Ok, so Father’s Day is approaching and you’d rather go to the dentist than buy another tie. Save the appointment for wisdom teeth trouble and make shopping a little easier. Here are 10 gift ideas for Father’s day that are sure to bring a SINCERE smile to his face.

10. Father of the Year Plaque – Show your appreciation for that special Father with a trophy or plaque that honors him as a Father.

9. Magazine Subscription- This is the gift that keeps on giving year round. Popular subscriptions are Sports Illustrated, Men’s Journal and Muscle & Fitness. There are others that I would rather not mention, but I am sure would get a positive reaction, if you know what I mean.

8. Sports Tickets- Because Father’s Day is during the summer, baseball would the sporting event to get tickets for. Other options are wrestling events or golf tournaments.

7. Golf Getaway- Speaking of golf, a golf getaway is a really nice gift and a great way for busy dad to unwind.

6. Gift Basket- You are probably thinking Gift Basket?! Yup I said gift basket. You can find any themed gift basket nowadays including golf, fishing, football, baseball and movie lovers.

5. Clothing- I gave my father-in-law a T-shirt with his only granddaughter’s picture on it and it he has it folded in a drawer so that he can’t ruin it. Saying he worships it -is an understatement. If he isn’t the sentimental type, golf shirts and shorts work too.

4. Watch – They seem to be a necessity that men don’t splurge on. If he is wearing a watch with a plastic wristband, you need to read no further. Go shopping right away.

3. Barbeque Supplies- The weather is warm and there is a good chance you are having a BBQ to celebrate Father’s Day. Start the BBQ off right with new cooking tools for the BBQ cook.

2. Tools- This is a pretty obvious choice but a great gift nonetheless. Especially if you married someone like Tim Taylor – The Tool Man

1. A day to watch sports, pig out and do whatever it is, he likes to do. Consider this his special day. Things like breakfast in bed, renting his favorite movie (you know the one with all the guns, violence and macho stuff) and cooking his favorite dinner could be just what the father asked for.

8 Things For A Wife To Do For Father's Day

No, I am not talking about picking up the dry cleaning or filling the dishwasher. That “To Do” list will just have to wait for another day. Things for a wife to do on father’s day are special and celebratory of the fact that this man is your husband and the father of your kids. So, if you are ready, here are some of the many things for a wife to do on Father’s Day:

Provide your husband with some “mad money” – Believe it or not, your husband puts off buying little things he needs for the good of the family many times, too. So, giving him some money specifically for purchasing what he wishes, he will feel okay about buying that new pair of khakis or the DVD he’s wanted for months.

Have him plan a “night on the town” that you pay for! – Most times when couples enjoy a “date night”, the wife does the choosing of the restaurant and movie. This Father’s Day let your husband make all the decisions and treat him to it all!

Surprise him with a vacation day – Plan an outing to the beach, the park or a nearby zoo! Then, contact your husband’s boss and tell him he will be taking the Friday before or the Monday after Father’s Day off! To make it a real surprise, don’t inform your husband until he gets up for breakfast!

Go get his car, truck or SUV cleaned and waxed – add an oil change for a total vehicle make-over. Since the men of the house are normally the ones responsible for car maintenance, this will not only be a surprise, but a truly appreciated gift.

Send him off for a weekend – Send him to a men’s retreat, out fishing with friends, or anywhere he can relax and rejuvenate.

Put aside money all year so you can buy that really expensive gift he wants! Even if you don’t make much, setting aside a little each paycheck can really add up! Make sure this fund is strictly for Father’s Day, so you aren’t tempted to tap into it for groceries. Each year, a nice sum will be available to buy your husband that extravagant gift he really wants!

Give him some “alone time” – Set aside a whole day that your husband can do as he pleases. Send him off to golf, play baseball, or have an all day poker party with his friends. Let him know you can hold down the fort and the kids while he enjoys himself.

Plan a night “in” – When kids are in the picture, intimacy is not always on the top of your list. Make sure for Father’s Day you make romance the #1 priority. Send the kids to grandma and grandpa for the day and prepare a candlelight dinner, followed by cuddling on the couch in front of your favorite movie, followed by a bedroom rendezvous.

The options for things for a wife to do on Father’s Day are limitless. Just ask your partner, lover, and friend what you can do to make that day the most special day of the year.

“Nope!” said dad. “I’m going to sit back here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just like you’ve been doing to me for sixteen years!”

Happy Father’s Day to all you dads!

Father's Day Steak: Tips For Cooking a Mouth-Watering Steak

It's a trite, but often repeated saying: The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. So why, when Father's Day rolls around, do we buy endless ties and "message" T shirts? Is the way to his heart through his clothes? Not likely. It's the stomach, people, and that means good food. For many men, good food comes in the form of a great steak.

So what if you're not a steak eater, or you eat it only in restaurants and the thought of purchasing a raw slab scares you to death? Fear not. It's not that complicated, really. Even a caveman can handle this job.

It's important to know your cuts of meat before planning the menu. You don't want to cook the dad in your life a tasteless, tough piece of leather. You might not notice the difference, but let's face it - he will. Since you'll likely be grilling, it's important to know the best cuts of meat for the grill.

You want to choose the most tender portions of meat for grilling. Experts generally consider these cuts of beef to be the best for grilling:

- Rib Eye
- T-Bone
- Porterhouse
- Strip steak (like New York steak)

If there is the word "loin" on the package, you're in good shape, though most grill experts agree the T-bone is the most superior cut of beef for grilling. It stays tender and juicy, and is thick enough to withstand a fair amount of time on the grill without overcooking. Stay away from top round or anything with "round" or "chuck" in the name. These will not cook well on the grill. Flank steak and London broil can also be tough.

Next, it's important to know how to choose a steak. Don't just grab the first package that looks good to you. Look for some good marbling in the steak. Yes, this is another word for fat. But we're not cooking for the dieter in the family on this special day, we're trying to give dad a good steak, remember? Those little bits of fat scattered about the steak will essentially melt while the meat is cooking, giving the meat a rich and more tender flavor.

In that same vein, don't trim the fat from your steak before cooking. It might be the diet book author in you coming out, but that thick layer of fat around your steak is what will give the steak a wonderful juicy quality and rich flavor. You can cook the steak, and then trim the fat, but cook the steak while it's still dressed in its fat clothes. It's worth it.

Do you need to buy a "name brand" steak? Experts say it's not necessary, even though branded meat is a new commodity and becoming more widely available. Nor is it necessary to choose a steak from a butcher shop or from behind the glass window in the meat department at your local grocery store. Usually the pre-packaged steaks are the same you would get from behind the glass, and since the butcher is a dying breed, you could certainly go that route if you have a neighborhood butcher, but if not, a good quality grocery store will provide what you need.

Finally, it's important to know your grades of steak.

- Prime is the top grade, and it features the most marbling and is the most tender, but most of us don't have access to this grade in mainstream grocery stores. This is often what you get in a restaurant.

- Choice is the best grade most of us can get in the grocery store. But choice does not guarantee high quality as this grade encompasses meat that can be almost as good as prime, or almost as bad as select, our next grade.

- Select beef is the most lean and least expensive beef and is the grade of beef most commonly found in your grocery store meat case. Since this is Father's Day, try to find choice and splurge a little.

If you are unsure about your ability to pick up a good steak locally, consider ordering online and having fresh, high-quality steaks delivered to your door.

At OmahaSteaks.com, you can buy a large variety pack of meat, grill some for dad, and then send him home with a few spares for another day. KansasCitySteaks.com offers prime quality steaks for a restaurant-quality dad's meal.

Unique and Unusual Gift Ideas For Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a wonderful time of year for men. It’s a wonderful time to honor them and a wonderful time to buy for them.

Let’s first talk about honoring our fathers. It is true that we have many homes without fathers. My heart goes out to those mothers and children who are not blessed with the love and attention of a wonderful man. My prayer for them is that they can overcome that deficit in their lives and be blessed in other ways.

Men play a critical role in the well being of our families. Father’s Day is the time of year we let them know how important they really are. Children make them cards and little gifts they will cherish forever, at least until they get lost in the drawer. But that’s O.K. We all lose things in the drawer, but we still have them.

Women want to find the perfect gift for their own father or the father of their children. We want to buy them something special to let them know we love them and to remind them of the important roll they play in our lives. But when you’re buying, don’t forget this rule - you’re not buying for yourself, you’re buying for them.

This is the man’s time of year. Everything manly is on sale. Is he into sports? You can find almost anything you want, from clothing to picture frames, sports mugs, gift baskets, jewelry and the list goes on. The same is true for the fisherman, the hunter, the golfer, the businessman and even the couch potato.

Outdoor shops have great selections for any outdoor activities including sports, hunting, fishing, camping, boating, etc. But if you can’t get to an outdoor shop, it doesn’t matter. You can still find something great on the web.

Online gift basket shops offer terrific ideas for men of all interests. For the couch potato who wants to enjoy the T.V. and snack, the businessman, the fisherman, or the hunter, they try to offer something for everyone.

Don’t forget personalized gifts. You can personalize pocket watches, jewelry, photo frames, mugs, desk accessories, etc. There are many great online sites that specialize in personalizing gifts. These gifts are extra special because you are giving more thought and attention to your selection.

And gadgets! Men love gadgets. It doesn’t matter if it’s electronic, mechanical, or somewhere in between, men love boy’s toys. These are hot sellers and they’re everywhere. You can find them in the stores and you can find them online.

Let the dad or dads in your life know they are special. When you give them their gifts and hugs, don’t forget to say, “I love you.” Men need to hear those words, too.

For our military dads serving away from home and perhaps in harm’s way, we’re all praying for their safe return so they can once again resume that all important roll of being “Dad”.

Whether at home or away, may God bless our Dads. Happy Father’s Day!

A Look at Casino Slot Machines

Casino slot machines easily account for nearly 70% of yearly casino income. Beginning and expert gamblers alike enjoy the fun and excitement of pulling the lever at a casino slot machine. Casino slot machines require no special skills, nor are there any strategies for winning. Winning at a casino slot machine depends entirely upon luck. We have all heard stories of people striking it rich after depositing only a few coins. Those of us who have played casino slot machines also know how easy it is to keep feeding the machine because playing is so much fun.

You can play casino slot machines at various casinos across the country. For those in the Southeastern United States, Tunica, MS is a grand hotspot for casino slot machines. Every year, thousands of people from surrounding, non-gambling states pile onto charter buses to spend a night or weekend gambling their time away. Casino slot machines are one of the primary attractions. Other gamblers will agree that Las Vegas casinos are the best place to play slot machines. You will certainly find no shortage of casino slot machines in Vegas.

Casino slot machines were first thought to be a very effective means of occupying the bored wives of the high-rolling gamblers of Vegas. The first casino owners who came up with this brilliant plan certainly had no real idea of what was in store for casino slot machines. Little did they know that those menial machines would eventually account for millions of dollars in revenue each year.

Young people who are experiencing their first time in a casino to the seasoned gambler, everyone is certain to find a casino slot machine that is invigorating.

A Look At Roulette Gambling

For the novice gambler, roulette gambling seems like a very difficult task to learn. It is true that learning the strategies used by pros can take years of experience to master, but you can find many sources online that outline the basics of roulette gambling. Just keep in mind that it takes a while to become a master gambler and to pace yourself.

Basically, you use chips to place your bets on a variety of number and colors on the roulette table. The Croupier (dealer) spins the wheel and a number and color is chosen. As the wheel spins, a small ball rolls around the wheel and lands on a destination. This is just an example of the basics of roulette gambling.

Roulette gambling can be as simple as placing a bet and watching the wheel spin. Winning in roulette gambling is a combination of strategy, odds and luck. You will not win every round; knowing the odds of the game can greatly influence your success in roulette gambling. Practice does not necessarily make perfect in roulette, although the more you play and the more experienced you become, the better you will be at gauging the odds.

You can always try roulette gambling at an online venue to begin with. Many websites offer free roulette gambling and this might be a great way to learn the game and test your abilities. As you feel more comfortable with the game, you may decide to play at a casino or at an online venue that is pay-to-play. Roulette can be a fun and exciting game with the potential for great payouts.

A Matter Of Winning And Losing: Tips On Playing Blackjack

Today, blackjack seems to be one of the most popular card games. This is because playing blackjack is so easy to learn and play. Unlike poker, blackjack does not have any combinations to remember.

In blackjack, the object of the game is to get the sum of the two cards close to 21. When a person gets cards that are over 21, he or she loses the game.

Normally, a player receives two cards. After the players see their cards, they have to decide whether they would hit or stand. When a person says “stand,” this means the player thinks he or she is closer to 21 already. When a player says “hit,” this means that he or she still needs additional cards just to get close to 21.

Players can draw as many cards as they want until they feel they are close to 21 already. A player who is nearer to 21 wins.

However, there are people who have devised some tips and strategies to get an edge over the other players. There are times that these tips really can help some people win.

Here’s a list of some tips that players may choose to use them so as to win the game.

1. If a player gets 17 or higher, it is always better to stand, and if the player has any number from 13 to 16 and the dealer’s card is 6 or lower, it would be better to stand. But if the dealer has 7 or more, it would be better for a player to hit.

The theory here is that, if the dealer is showing a card of six or lower, the dealer may take a card, assuming that the dealer’s card facing down is a ten. The players, then, assume that the dealer is banking on a bust hand, so the other players have the tendency to maintain a lower card number.

The rule of thumb: players should always assume that the dealer’s down cards is 10.

2. If a player has aces or 8’s, it would be better to split them regardless of the dealer’s showing card.

3. A player should remember not to split 10’s. Chances are, they might end up getting busted.

4. If the dealer is showing 4, 5, or 6, it would be better for a player to stand on hard 12, or hit hard if the dealer is showing 2, 3, 7, or higher.

5. In order to win, players should always remember not to split fours, face cards, and fives.

Indeed, gambling is a game of chance, but with keen observation, winning is possible.

A preview of March's UK Horse Racing

The four-day Cheltenham Festival dominates the March programme, but there’s also a busy programme of racing throughout the month including the ever-popular Imperial Cup day at Sandown plus the thrills and spills of the Midlands Grand National day at Uttoxeter. Flat fans, meanwhile, will need no reminding that the new turf season kicks off with the William Hill Lincoln at Redcar on March 25.

March begins with the newly-established Vodafone Gold Cup at Newbury on the 4th over two and a half miles. It’s something of a surprise to find such a valuable race staged so close to the Cheltenham Festival, and many trainers face the dilemma of deciding whether to run here or in either the Ryanair Chase or Racing Post Plate over similar distances at the Cheltenham Festival.

Twelve months ago a solid handicapper in the shape of Supreme Prince held on to land the valuable prize while in its inaugural year, the classy Isio was a well-backed winner. Absent since that season, Nicky Henderson’s gelding may well reappear in this race and would be an interesting contender.

On the same day Doncaster’s Grimthorpe Chase, a staying handicap over three and a quarter miles, has been transferred to Lingfield and may well be the chosen target of A Glass In Thyne, who won the Skybet Chase that had also been switched from Doncaster to Southwell in January. Maybe the changing fixture pattern will repeat itself again for Ben Pollock’s improving young chaser.

Champion trainer Martin Pipe has endured a stop-start season but plenty of punters will still be scouring the list of runners for the Imperial Cup at Sandown on March 11 in the hope of unearthing another Pipe hotpot for one of the season’s most keenly-contested handicap hurdles.

Pipe has won the race five times overall and has landed the prize three times in recent seasons. His mass of entries should be studied with the utmost care and may well include progressive sorts such as Buena Vista, Acambo and Desert Air.

The punishing combination of a fiercely-run race and a stamina-sapping finish up the demanding Sandown hill has often meant that lightly-weighted horses have held an advantage over their higher-weighted rivals, while waiting tactics have also proved successful for several of the recent winners. Making all in a race as competitive as this isn’t easy.

The Irish won this race with shock outsider Regency Rake, trained by Arthur Moore in 1999, and any runners from across the Irish Sea should be accorded the greatest respect. Jessica Harrington’s Studmaster, an easy winner of his last two races might take in this contest or wait for the County Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

On the same day at Sandown make a note also of the EBF Novices’ Hurdle Final, a race that often produces a star of the future. Plenty of classy young hurdlers will have this contest in their sights including the Lambourn-trained duo Mr Pointment, and Wogan while the NickGifford team intends to field Dusky Lord.

In recent years the Irish have held the Champion Hurdle on March 14, the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival, in a vice-like grip, winning five of the last seven renewals and looking at the somewhat weakened field for this year’s renewal it’s hard not to envisage the hurdling crown being whisked away once more across the Irish Sea.

Reigning title-holders boast a superb record in the Champion, but recent dual winner Hardy Eustace will have to banish a bout of the blues on his latest and disappointing effort in the AIG Europe Champion Hurdle at Leopradstown. At the age of nine many think his time may have passed.

Plenty of horses that have been placed in the race previously have put that beneficial experience to good use by returning again the next year to run well. Ireland’s formidable trio of Brave Inca, Macs Joy and Al Eile, who finished third, fifth and seventh respectively in last year’s race will all be fancying their chances of winning this race a second time around.

The home-based challenge looks poor and has been hit hard by a spate of cruel injuries as well as the loss of form of emerging contenders such as Faasel and Penzance. Maybe the best of the British will be Arcalis, whose chances will be much increased by quick ground at Cheltenham, and a return to form for his stable.

Wednesday sees the two-mile heavyweights clash in the stirring championship that is the Queen Mother Champion Chase. Predicting this year’s winner revolves around whether punters think dual winner and reigning champion Moscow Flyer is just a jaded member of the old guard ready to be swept away by young pretenders such as the classy Kauto Star and the improving Fota Island.

Disappointing on his two starts so far this season, the mighty Moscow Flyer is twelve years of age and you have to go back almost thirty years (1977) to find the last winner from that age group.

Kauto Star, by contrast, has youth on his side and hails from the Paul Nicholls stable that has the best recent record in this race with winners in 2004 and 1999, and four placed horses since 2000. Kauto Star is a worthy favourite to add to that auspicious tally.

Thursday’s championship race is the World Hurdle, formerly known as the Stayers’ Hurdle and rather like the Queen Mother Champion Chase, it features a past champion in Baracouda attempting to add a third title at the age of eleven in what must rank a one of the most open renewals in living memory.

But for the foot-and-mouth abandonment of 2001, Baracouda would already have three Stayers’ titles to his name but his task this year is made even harder by his advancing years and the presence of a strong domestic and Irish challenge from Mighty Man, No Refuge, Asian Maze and Golden Cross.

Friday March 17 is Cheltenham Gold Cup day and after the brilliant dominance of the chasing blue riband by three times victor Best Mate, this year’s renewal is one of the poorest and also most open in years and likely to produce a surprise result in this greatly-anticipated championship event.

The loss through injury of Kicking King, last year’s easy winner, has left the race wide-open but many backers will be looking to Monkerhostin, runner-up to the imperious Kicking King in the 2005 King George VI Chase, as a possible winner. Seven of the last ten Gold Cup winners ran in the King George, making it a key trial for future Gold Cup heroes.

Cheltenham week closes with the Midlands Grand National day on March 18 and Ossmoses, a course winner last year, will be a leading fancy for the four-mile one-and-a-half furlong prize given his preference for running over long-distances in the mud. On the same card backers should watch out for Sue Smith’s tough mare Viciana in the EBF Mares’ Novices’ Chase Final.

March closes with the William Hill Lincoln run for the first time at Redcar (due to building work at Doncaster) and the draw is sure to have a big say in the outcome of this one-mile handicap, and the first big prize of the new turf Flat season.

Twelve months ago Newmarket trainer Sir Michael Stoute won this contest for the first time with Stream of Gold and bids to do the same again with the progressive King’s Majesty while James Fanshawe will be looking for easy ground if he’s to run Cesare, another young and improving horse.

Poker tables come in varied shapes and sizes and can also be customized to suit any poker game specifications. There are no fixed shapes or sizes for a poker table; however, the most common poker tables are mostly rectangular or hexagonal. Rectangular poker tables are usually thirty inches high and forty to forty-two inches wide, though the lengths do vary from seventy-two inches to 110 inches.

Sometimes a dealer/player may have to sit in the middle of a rectangular poker table due to the large size of the table.

Today, the Internet has made it easy to design and acquire a poker table. Some manufactures also offer custom, folding poker tables, card tables, pedestal poker tables, three-in-one poker tables, Texas Hold’em poker tables, blackjack tables, poker tabletops, and craps tables, along with matching chairs, poker cards, and other supplies to suit the needs and tastes of prospective buyers.

Then there are some multipurpose poker tables that have an attractive wooden tabletop, which can be flipped to form a roulette table, a craps table, or a six-person blackjack table. The poker table also serves the purpose of a functional storage for storing the game pieces and poker chips.

No matter in what shape or size they come in, poker tables are in demand worldwide. With the introduction of multipurpose tables, the dealers find it easy to juggle around games. The Internet has made it possible to acquire a poker table suiting your tastes and style without much difficulty.

Betting Systems
Some players swear by them. A good online casino directory devoted to giving players all the facts possible should explain in depth the most widely-used betting systems online or off.

A Horse Racing Certainty

I have been gambling since around the age of sixteen. I see it as a bit of a hobby and really enjoy playing poker and bragg. I go to the casino as often as I can and also love to go to the horse racing and to the greyhounds. This article is a story about when I lost a lot of money on a horse which was supposed to be a racing certainty.

As well as gambling, I love to have a few beers. It was during one of my nights out drinking when I met an old school friend. His name was John and we had not seen each other for around fifteen years. The conversation soon turned to talking about various forms of gambling and we realised that we had very similar interests.

John told me about some of his more profitable days and I responded by talking about some of mine. I must say his seemed far more impressive than what I had ever won. John then told me that he was very good friends with a local trainer and that he had some information that I might be interested in.

This night was becoming more interesting by the hour and I enquired as to what type of information he had. He started talking about a horse which the trainer and its connections thought could not lose. The horse was going to run in ten days time and was of a far higher class than what the other horses in the race would be. The trainer wanted the horse to have an easy victory so that it would gain some confidence from the race.

I told quite a lot of people about this horse over the next few days, this was to be a big mistake, a mistake I will not be repeating in the future.

The big race day arrived and I was very excited. I will not tell you how much I placed on the horse but lets just say it was a lot of money. The odds were five to one and I believed that this was going to be the easiest money I would have ever obtained.

The race in question was a three mile hurdle and with only three fences to go the horse was cruising. It was challenging the long term leader who was fading and being strongly ridden. Approaching the second to last fence the horse took the lead but disaster was to strike, yes it fell at this fence. I could not believe it, the horse would have won if only it could have jumped those last two fences.

These are my horse racing tips, beware there is no such thing as a racing certainty and only gamble what you can afford to lose. Gambling can be lots of fun and you can have some great days and nights out, I now treat it like a hobby and have decreased the amount I bet as I now have a family to support.

A Little History on the World Series of Poker

The World Series of Poker is the most anticipated and crowning event in the world of poker. It’s been around for so long and its history has been clouded by its popularity that people tend to forget just how great the WSOP was when it first started. Over the past couple of years, thousands of people have been trying to cash a quick buck off its popularity, and hundreds of web sites have suddenly popped up, but despite all of this the WSOP has been around when poker was considered serious card playing. It wasn't a fad that was made to be televised into some sort of fashion. It was quality poker.

Back in the day, men smoked cigars and sipped whisky while eyeing up their opponents. It was a game made for men like Nicolas Dandolos, commonly referred to as Nick the Greek, and Benny Binion. These two were champion gamblers and poker players back during the 1940s. It was no wonder then when Nick the Greek approached Binion to set up a world class match. Nick challenged the supposed champion of all poker players, Johnny Moss.

Binion agreed to the plan and he set up the match between Dandolos and Moss. There was one exception though, Binion made sure to attract as much attention to the event as possible by holding it in public. It was to be on public display and seen as a marathon. After five long months of discussion and compromises, all parties agreed to continue with the match. Thus, the World Series of Poker was born in 1949. It was a grueling event where the players only took breaks to catch up on sleep. Moss came out on top and reportedly took home around $2 million in cash, nearly an entire casino’s worth in 1949.

Nearly 21 years later, Binion decided to try his hand with the WSOP again. It was 1970, and this time he officially deemed it the WSOP. And once again, Johnny Moss did what he does best and walked away with the pot.

By now Binion knew he had something particularly special in the poker world. He continued the World Series of Poker yearly from then on. By 1982, there were 104 top poker players signed up for the WSOP. Now in 2006, at the height of the poker craze, everyone believes he or she is the next gift to poker. Last year, there were 5,619 people entered into the main event. This year, the numbers are predicted to be over 8,000 entrants. The size of the WSOP has changed, but the quality has not. It is the biggest, most anticipated poker tournament for any poker player.

9 Sweet Secrets of Live Tournaments

Playing poker online is fun and I dabble at it as well from time to time. But, many players seem to feel that playing in a live tournament is very similar to playing online. Well, it is and it is not. Here are 9 golden tips on how to ease your transition from playing online to playing in a live poker tournament.

1) If you have difficulty facing pressure in daily life, do not think that playing in front of watchful eyes and a roomful of people will have no effect on you. If you are very easily moved and influenced, I suggest you keep your money and forget about playing in a tournament at all and this is relevant even more when talking about a live poker tournament.

2) Wear comfortable and not fashionable clothes. This is not a fashion show: this is poker. Thus, wear those clothes that will help you feel comfortable and at ease. I have known a woman who wore tight jeans and then all through the round, she kept fidgeting uncomfortably. Regardless to say, she was the first one to lose and all because she was dressed uncomfortably.

3) Drink only water and even then only a little so that you will not feel thirsty and also will not get the urge to go to the lavatory. Either of the two feelings are disastrous to a poker player in the midst of a hand.

4) Do not drink alcohol or even sugared soft drinks. Alcohol will cause you to lose your concentration and sweet drinks give a false sense of well-being; both will work against you when you play in a live game.

5) Do not sit next to the dealer. Most poker tournaments allow you to pick your seat in the earlier rounds. It is best to sit opposite the dealer so that you will be able to look at each and every poker player.

6) Try not to change positions while playing. If you really begin to feel uncomfortable, change your position after a hand ends. In not circumstance should you move while playing.

7) Go to the toilet when the break is announced and do not hang around talking. It is best to loosen your gall bladder than exchanging a few words with other players.

8) Watch how others are doing. Those about to lose will opt to play only when they have strong hands; those with a large stack will be more willing to risk it.

9) Learn the rules and regulations of the particular poker tournament you have entered so as to save unnecessary losses.

Live poker games are against people and so if you can read people well, you will have an advantage when playing in a tournament. But do not over-estimate your opponents. Many poker pros fall to relatively unknown players because they are over-confident.

9 Ways To Win At Sports Betting

If you are looking to try your luck at sports betting then know that you do have greater odds of winning in this game than you would in roulette or craps. While those are games of chance, sports betting is a game of predicting a foreseeable outcome. Here are some tips on how to win big at the big game.

9.Place Bets on the Right Sports Book
Statistics suggest that placing bets with the correct sports book will make a big difference, and increase the odds of winning by 3%.

8.Bet Against the Public
There are some that claim that “fading the public” can be profitable. This has led many bettors to bet on the other team than is predicted.

7.Do Your Homework Before the Game
The best way to win sports betting is to research all aspects of a game, especially circumstances and data that others would not consider. Not even bookies will have time to research every sport and every game. Therefore, if you can create a niche for yourself, you could become an expert on a smaller conferences and find yourself winning big money.

6.Choose the Underdog at Home
Statistically speaking, it’s a good idea to bet on an underdog at home. A team will put forth their best effort at home stadium and underdogs have a way of triumphing over the odds in general. Using this strategy you may beat the odds too.

5.Bet at Just the Right Time
Bettors who bet on underdogs usually bet early. Therefore, if you are betting on an underdog try and bet late. If you are betting on the favorite then bet early. Going against the grain in sports gambling is often a smart move.

4.Make Arbitrage Bets
You can make money on sure bets regardless of the outcome of a game with arbitrage bets. The advantage of these bets is that it doesn’t matter what the outcome of a game is, since the only bet you made was on a specific happening.

3.Square or Sucker Lines
Many betters try to stay away from square lines (that is, lines that are designed to lure public opinion into betting a certain way) and in the end, can even make money off these phony wagers if they can closely monitor the betting percentages.

2.Never Gamble While Drinking
This may be common knowledge to some, a great shock to others. However, when you drink an alcoholic beverage, your judgment will be significantly clouded. A drink may also give you that extra “courage” to make a rash and expensive decision.

1.Manage your Gambling Money
Another lesson in common sense that is often ignored when it comes time to put down a wager: never bet more than you can afford to lose. In fact, it is recommended that you set aside a portion of your money for betting and to stick with it, regardless of your winnings or losses. Lastly, try to spread your total among a few smaller bets rather than risk it all on one sure thing that may not be as predictable as everyone thinks.

10 rules to observe when playing poker online

SELECT A CASINO. Rule number one. Be a member of no less than six online casinos so you can rotate and move around from casino to casino during play. Select only well~known casinos with excellent reputations for paying quickly and maintaining industry~ accepted randomizing algorithms (more on this later).

SELECT A BETTING LIMIT. But only if it's $1/2, $2/4 or $5/10 blinds. This section will discuss the research, the math, and the studies on human nature that prove conclusively that high~stake limit tables are not the place to make money. They are however an excellent place to lose large amounts of cash in a big hurry. The return on investment (ROI) is best at medium limit tables.

SELECT YOUR STAKE. No decision here if your smart. You must have 50 to 100 times the Big Blind. Any less and your chances of making money nose dive. More will only improve your table 'cred'and help to intimidate weaker players.

SELECT A TABLE. Spend at least 15 minutes watching the play at each table. Review your notes if recognized players are present. Check out at least three tables before you start. Then select the loosest table. To win at Texas Hold'em Poker you must play tight in loose games and play in loose games only. If all the tables are tight, run. Go back to Step 1.

SELECT A POSITION AT THE TABLE. Watch for the tightest player at the table. Pick a spot to that players left. We have dedicated an entire chapter later on to table position strategy.

TAKE NOTES ON PLAYERS. Record playing styles. Do they raise before the flop? Do they fold before the flop? What's the size of their stake? Do they react quickly or slowly when their turn
1. comes up? What kind of cards did they play on? Everyone should take player notes at casinos like Party Poker where they offer the feature. Don~t know how to take notes? Just right~click on the avatar (picture) of the target player and click ~Player Notes~. That feature is there for a very good reason -use it.

TURN OFF CHAT. It's distracting and rarely valuable. If you want to chat, use MSN -but never while you're playing for money.

TURN OFF TV's, MUSIC, OTHER DISTRACTIONS. Now is not the time to catch the score on your favorite game or consume a bucket of chicken. If anyone's going to be distracted, it should be your opponents. Let them miss cues, watch their stack disappear and wonder what happened.

PLAY TIGHT. Follow the Food Chain Theory. Learn the rules. Understand the odds. Bet like a'shark', not a'fish'.

PLAY FOR ONE HOUR -then take a break, regardless of whether you're winning or losing. This will keep you sharper than the other players who are hanging on for that one last win.

And there you are. Ten steps that will make you thousands, maybe a lot more over time.

10 Tips To Find That Right Online Casino

Casinos are becoming easier to access thanks to the power of the internet. The internet allows gamblers to play 24/7 wherever they may be. Because of that, there have been more and more casinos popping up online. How do you know which one is the best online casino to pick? Here are some tips to pick the best online casino out there.

1. Find out which software the company is using to run their online casinos. Some major software providers are Microgaming, Cryptologic, Net Entertainment, Boss Media, Playtech, and Rtg. A company that uses tried and tested software means that they are trying to make a name for themselves. Software created by major companies is not cheap, if they use expensive software; it only means they are probably serious.

2. A great casino should also offer great customer service support. They should be available where ever, when ever. They should also be able to be contacted in every way possible, 24/7. They should also be friendly, helpful and quick to respond to player’s problems.

3. Try to ask around for the best online casinos. Why believe only what you read in their sites? Try to find out what other users think about their site.

4. Find a casino that fits your computer and internet connection. If you have a slow connection, you may have a long time to download the games. If your computer components are also kind of slow, it might affect the images and game play. The main reason people play online is to experience a better gaming experience. If your computer and the casino are not compatible, why play online?

5. Always look at the terms and conditions. There will be online casinos that offer bonus play, but only after some conditions are met.

6. Always check out the different games offered. The more games that you like, the better. If you love playing slot machines, try looking for a casino that offers great slot machines.

7. Always consider how you'll be able to pay for those games. Are there easy ways to pay for them through the bank? Always pay in the most efficient way .

8. Consider how you can be paid. Some casinos pay within 24 hours, some takes long weeks and could even reach months. If you win a big amount, some will pay you in staggered payment. I.e. if you win $15,000 you’ll be paid for 3 weeks. This is because some casinos limit their pay to $5,000 per week. So check their holding and process terms.

9. Do more research about the casino. There are online casinos that are linked with land casinos. This gives them less chance to run off with your money (unless the casino can be folded up and flown away).

10. Follow your guts, all of the things mentioned above may be correct. But in the end, your gut will tell what is right and what isn't.

10 Ultimate Texas Hold’em Tells

Being Able to distinguish the Cards of a player would help you to save you’re money when you have a bad hand and win you the pot when you have a good hand. Of course, you can’t see what cards you’re opponents have. The only thing you have is there facial and body expressions. In this 2 part guide, I will teach 10 of the best tips on the net. These are amazing secrets that will help you win every dollar on the table you are playing at.

The tells of a player range from what they do to how they act. You have to look at what you’re opponents are doing AT ALL TIMES. Pay attention to there every move and look for the following signs which will help you win every Texas hold’em game. Read the following 5 tips very carefully and please print it out as a reference.

1. The way the a player arranges his chips is one of the main signs you have to look for. This is a tell that can help you identify and classify you’re opponents before the game begins.
Now the secret is whether or not the player keeps there pile of chips neat or messy. If the player keeps there pile neat, 9 times out of 10 that is a tight player. This means that they will not bluff often and you have to expect that they call with strong hands. If they have a messy pile of chips, you know that they that is a loose player and you can be sure that they will be bluffing and playing rambunctiously.

2. The way a player places the chips from his stack to the pot is a sure tell. If the player throws his chips in nervously, they spill over, and he cleans them up he is bluffing. The fact that he cleans them up means that he is trying to cover it up. He wants to make sure you wont call so that he can win the pot. This means that you should call because you are competing against a weak hand.

3. Another tell hat is amazingly obvious but not understood by many as the way someone will pay is the way they buy chips. If a person yells to the dealer that he wants chips and he openly waves his money and is very showy with his money, he is a loose aggressive player.
If the player is quiet and asks for chips politely, you have a conservative tight player.

4. This is an audible tell. This one you have to listen to carefully because it is not easy to spot since it’s a noise a player makes. When a player makes a sad sound like a sigh or a tisk sound, they are obviously bluffing. Make sure not to bet because they, most likely, have a strong hand. When a player sees the flop and makes that sad “tisk” sound, it means they completed a good hand, they are trying to cover up there happiness.

5. The final tip of the day has to do with the flop. This is THE MOST IMPORTANT TIP;
DON’T LOOK AT THE FLOP WHEN IT COMES! What you want to do is look at the players reactions to the flop. If a player looks away from the flop, they have a good hand because they are trying to keep from looking like they have a good hand. They want to seem uninterested. The players who stare at the flop have a weak hand.
These are top secret poker tells that you can use to help you win money in any casino. You can probably take these 5 tips and win at table with an advanced skill playing level right now.
I hope you enjoyed these tips and I hope you will read the other 5 tips because those are the better of the 10.

18 horses to keep an eye out for during April's UK Horse Racing

April is the month when the turf Flat season starts to hit full stride and for many punters the fixture that lights the blue touch paper is the Craven meeting at Newmarket in the middle of the month.

Before sampling the breezy delights of Newmarket’s Rowley Mile course, however, there’s the small matter of the ever-expanding Grand National meeting at Aintree that begins with a cracking card on April 6.

In recent years Aintree’s prestigious three-day meeting has begun to rival Cheltenham’s somewhat bloated four-day fixture for thrills and spills, and there’s little doubt that the highlight of the Merseyside racing calendar offers three days of top-class racing culminating in the running of the world’s most famous race on the final day.

As racecourses go, Cheltenham and Aintree are chalk and cheese: where the former is twisty and undulating with a punishing uphill finish, the latter is long and flat and essentially sharp in nature, and given the two contrasting course configurations it takes a good horse to win a race at the Cheltenham Festival and then do the same at Aintree.

Exactly a year ago at Aintree that’s exactly what Fota Island managed to do when adding the John Smith’s Red Rum Handicap Chase to the Grand Annual Chase that he had won in such superb fashion at Cheltenham just over two and a half week’s previously.

Not surprisingly there will be plenty of horses from this year’s Grand Annual that will be seeking compensation on Merseyside including Andreas, an early casualty in the Grand Annual when a well backed favourite and Green Tango, who made strong late headway in the same race despite seeming unsuited to Cheltenham. Aintree’s flatter track should suit.

In the Betfair Bowl Chase on the opening day, Cheltenham also-rans boast a healthy record and Gold Cup failures Monkerhostin and Beef Or Salmon could well be among those bidding to banish the blues of a poor Festival run, while the versatile Impek, a runner-up in the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, may compete and is already a winner over slightly shorter on this sharp course earlier in the season.

In the big juvenile event, the John Smith’s Anniversary 4-Y-O Hurdle, several key players from Cheltenham’s Triumph Hurdle seem likely to figure including Fair Along, the Triumph Hurdle runner-up, who has already won a race over course and distance, along with Afsoun, who was under the weather in the Triumph, and rates a strong fancy.

On the second day - April 7 - the big race is the John Smith’s Melling Chase, and since its inception in 1989 this race’s roll-call of winners has featured the top chasers in training, who have successfully stepped up in trip after excelling at their specialist distance of two miles.

Remittance Man, Viking Flagship, Katabatic, Martha’s Son and Moscow Flyer are just a handful of past two-mile champions who have added this valuable prize after being crowned two-mile champions with a victory in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

Newmill, this year’s shock Queen Mother hero, won’t be running at Aintree but Kauto Star and Dempsey may line-up for this prize. The former, who was a warm favourite for the Queen Mother, fell early in that race bringing down the well supported Dempsey. If they have recovered from their tumbles, they should go close, while Irish raider and course winner Fota Island will be a likely contender too.

The unique Grand National fences come into play for the John Smith’s and Spar Topham Chase on the second day, and sound-jumping and well-seasoned campaigners do well in this hurly-burly contest, while in the John Smith’s Mildmay Chase it pays to look for a fresh horse that hasn’t endured the rigours of running in Cheltenham’s Royal & SunAlliance Chase, a race that tends to spoil their chances at Aintree.

Grand National day features the big race itself that stands alone as the major betting race of the year. The 2006 contest is dominated by Clan Royal, a runner-up in 2004 and last year’s easy winner, Hedgehunter. Since the course was modernised in the early nineties and the fences made easier and the landing sides raised, the classy and better horses have come to fore and dominated the event. Indeed, the National now has the look of just another long-distance steeplechase but one with plenty of history attached.

All eyes will be upon the fillies in the Shadwell Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes on the second day of Newmarket’s Craven meeting on April 19, but sadly in recent years this race has supplied few serious pointers towards the 1,000 Guineas, while further Classic clues may be on offer in the Craven Stakes for colts on April 20, the meeting’s final day. In 2004 the Barry Hills-trained Haafhd became the first colt since Tirol in 1990 to complete the Craven-2,000 Guineas double.

The search for Classic pointers switches to Newbury on April 22 when the Lane End Greenham Stakes takes place over 7f. In recent seasons Turtle Island, Celtic Swing and Victory Note have all landed Classics after scoring here and backers should pay this race plenty of respect in the colts’ Classic reckoning.

The Spring Cup Handicap at Newbury on April 22 is another race worth a second glance. Horses that have run well in the William Hill Lincoln during the previous month have an excellent record here, and any that come from Redcar following a prominent showing in the first big Flat handicap will surely warrant close consideration.

At Ayr on the same day there’s the Scottish Grand National to whet the appetite. One thing’s for sure and that’s any horse which has run in the Aintree Grand National must be avoided as such runners have an appalling record in the Scottish equivalent.

In 2004 Northern-trained Ryalux recorded a popular success and if the ground turns soft at the West of Scotland track plenty of folks will be rooting for another northern runner in Ossmoses, a strapping grey and stout stayer who all but landed the Midlands National over a similar marathon trip at Uttoxeter last month.

Twelve months ago trainer Paul Nicholls failed by a whisker to win this race with Cornish Rebel and the same trainer’s lightly-raced Ladalko has been kept fresh for this valuable prize. The Nicholls yard may also run Desert Quest, the County Hurdle winner, in the Scottish Champion Hurdle while Monet’s Garden, a runner-up in the Arkle Trophy Chase, bids to land a three-mile novices’ event at Ayr.

The curtain comes down on April’s busy and varied month with the mixed jumps and Flat card at Sandown on April 29. The Betfred Gold Cup is the jump season’s final big handicap and fancied runners from the Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson stables should be noted. The latter almost landed this prize plus a valuable bonus a year ago with Juveigneur and he could well become a serious candidate again.

Paul Nicholls should also be the trainer to watch in the Betfred Celebration Chase, with either Kauto Star or Andreas, two of the stable’s crack team of two-mile chasers, likely to land the honours. On the Flat the Betfred.com Mile Stakes is the highlight, and horses that ran well in Newmarket’s Earl of Sefton Stakes earlier in the month hold a good record in this Group Two contest.

OFFLINE GAMBLING...For richer or poorer

Gambling is very popular, from way back when, and more so today. It is a scam itself. In fact the oldest form known. Not only a scam, but very deceptive. Statistics show that about six percent of adults that are involved in gambling are severely addicted to such a "past time" as they call it. People who are hooked on gambling have the urge to bet on almost anything. From horses, cards, and the casino. The number doesn't end there. It continues to expand.

Casino scams are everywhere. High payouts and promising winnings are put up in huge slogans thereby attracting people who want to earn money the fast, easy and enjoyable way. A fact is gamblers waste a lot of their time, in the hope of winning. So they don't give up easily.

Studies show that gambling problems can easily occur in individuals with no self control. It is necessary for one to identify if he has problems, so it can be identified and acted upon promptly.

Here are some questions one should ask to detect if there is a problem:

* After gambling, when you lose money, be it a small or a large amount, do regret it, or feel resentment?

* When you win, do you have a strong desire to win more, therefore you want to go back?

* When you lose, do you feel a need to go back very soon?

* Do you spend a lot of time gambling, usually longer than what you planned?

*If you have problems, do you gamble to forget them?

* Are you spending more time gambling than with work?

*Do you not stop until your very last dollar is taken up?

*Do arguments take place between you and your family as a result of your need to gamble?

*To finance your gambling, do you borrow money from friends or associates?

Gambling addiction can be destructive. Family, friends and your reputation are at risk. It is a condition often times ignored. There are escape gamblers that affect seventy five percent of women from their thirties and up. Usually the reasons for gambling is to escape from the emotional pain that they are in, being bored, lonely, depressed or that they make gambling their hobby or past time. These types of addiction can be cured in three to six months.

The action gambler is much more difficult to deal. Most are men, where gambling for them creates ecstasy like a drug addition. This is much harder to cure, since the individual will deny the fact, when confronted. They will typically not stop until left with nothing, financially.

As gambling creates a lot of scams, it is a fact that still more and more are drawn to it. The primary reason is to win a huge amount of money. But then comes in the most lethal of reasons -- that of feeling a certain euphoria. Scams or no scams, an individual still continues to gamble and is a reason why offline gambling still thrives today.

So let me ask you.......If your looking for something that is realistic investment of your time and money, look at this ooprtunity. It's better than any gambling you could do.

A Action Arrangement Can Net Great Results

A Action Arrangement Can Net Great Results

When it comes to gambling, there are as abounding action systems as

there are things to bet on. Whether it's horses, football,

boxing or beyond, there are absolutely hundreds of altered

betting systems to consider. Back it comes to horses, however,

some action systems absolutely accomplish a accomplished lot of sense.

But, what are action systems and how do they work?

In general, a acceptable action systems takes a attending at the algebraic

behind the sport. That's right, the math. The odds, if you will.

The algebraic is advised the be all, end all in a acceptable action

system.

This is so for a cardinal of reasons, but the best accessible is the

fact it's aloof apparent logical. The admired in a chase is the

favorite for a reason. It's aloof added acceptable that horse will be

the aboriginal beyond the line.

When application a action arrangement to action on horse races, it's a acceptable

idea to bethink a few things and apply some accepted faculty forth

the way. Let's attending at some of the top tips for putting a

betting arrangement to use:

* Don't avoid mitigating factors. If, for example, the action

system you're application and the clue annal of the horses in

question point to a accurate acceptable winner, but you saw the

horse beforehand and noticed it was a little beneath the weather, you

might appetite to accept a altered winner. Or, if the admired is

not addicted of mud advance and it's raining, aces afresh (possibly).

* Don't bet your absolute bank. Abounding who use action systems tend

to go a little overboard. To anticipate action the abode and the

farm, set abreast X cardinal of dollars (that you can afford) and

never bet added than a baby allotment of the absolute you accept on

any accustomed race.

* Keep your bets consistent. Try to action the aforementioned amount, or

percentage of your bank, consistently. You can access the bet

when you've added your bank, or disposable money.

* No amount the attempt your action arrangement employs, it's a

good abstraction to bethink that they can be off on some days. No

matter how acceptable the action arrangement is, there are some canicule that

they aloof won't work. The allowance are in favor of the favorites

winning races, but sometimes the underdog will appear in.

* Don't apprehend after-effects over a distinct race. The key abaft best

betting systems is that they pay off in the continued run. That agency

they charge be active consistently over assorted contest with the

above in apperception - some canicule the allowance aloof don't assemblage up.

* Apperceive back to quit. Whether you're up or down, it's a acceptable abstraction

to apperceive back to airing abroad to comedy addition day. That means, set a

bottom absolute and a win limit. Back you ability the point (either

up or down), airing away.

A acceptable action arrangement helps those into antagonism attending at the allowance

carefully and comedy them in their favor. Because horses are

subject to acceptable canicule and bad days, aloof like people, it is a

smart abstraction to bethink a action arrangement won't consistently work, but

when it does, it does well.

A Craps System Increases Your Chances of Winning

If you're a craps player you probably enjoy playing the craps game with a minimum of risk. A craps system is a method of obtaining this. If you follow this system you will have a long and more enjoyable play whether you're playing craps at an Indian casino or from the best casino gambling online website.

A good system for the craps game should include


a Craps game plan
odds, such as knowledge
executing enough discipline to follow the craps game plan

The Craps game plan

Have you ever seen The Lakers or any other top football team going into the Super Bowl without a game plan? I haven't. And this is also true for the Craps game. You don't enter a serious Craps game without some sort of a game plan. With a good Craps game plan to follow, it’s less likely that you'll get caught up with all the "bad bets" at the table when things go wrong Vital questions your game plan must answer, for example is when to bet, what to bet on and how much to bet, etc.

Know Thy Odds

You should know the odds for any number that is rolled in the Craps game. As Craps players we know that the house has a definite advantage as the seven has the highest chance of rolling than any number. So a general rule of thumb should be that the further away from a seven the number is, the lower the chance it has of being rolled. Let's say a two has a one in 36 chance while an eight has five in 36 chance of rolling. So by applying a little common sense, you'll see that you should chose to place bets on numbers that have higher chances of rolling.

Craps discipline

To carry out your craps game plan, you need to drum up discipline. This means doing like the professional gamblers do; don't let greed and fear tempt you away from common sense. If you keep focused and execute a little discipline, you can play only the strongest bets on the table and eventually walk away with minor losses instead of ruin.

If the fortunate event of having a nice stack of the casino's chips in front of you occurs, executing discipline will also help you to go home.

A Crash Course on Casino Bonuses

Online casinos have been flooding the online world lately. It seems that they have been trying very hard in attracting more and more players to try their luck at online casinos. They have been have been trying to think up of different offers to catch a potential player’s attention. One such promotion is offering different types of casino bonuses to get people into playing on their online casinos.

Casino bonuses are offers being given by online casinos that would enable a player to avail of bonus betting money to wager on the several casino games being offered. The amount may differ for different online casinos. Some may give out 25 to 50 dollar bonuses for a minimum bet. There are even some online casinos that can offer a 100 percent match bonus for every deposit that the player makes. This means that if the player deposits $100 o his account, the online casino will match that amount in full, making the player acquire $200 initial betting money on his account. There are also other casinos offering bonuses next to nothing, just to have people have a taste of playing online and possibly have them hooked to play some more later on.

Although you might think that this is easy money on your part, there are certain requirements that you have to follow in order to cash in on your proceeds. Online casinos have established these requirements as a safeguard to possible abusers of their offer. One of the usual requirements is that a player should wager at least 25 times the amount of deposit and bonus before being able to cash in. There are some games like baccarat, craps, roulette and even blackjack that do not count in meeting the required wagering provisions.

Casino bonuses can really attract players into getting started on online betting. They seem to want to avail of the extra amount being offered that would provide them with more betting money. It has made many people turn into regular online players and has done well for the online casinos. But there are also some people who have taken advantage of this offer in order to cash in on casino bonuses. These players, otherwise known as “bonus hunters”, take full advantage of the offered casino bonuses by opting to cash in on their winnings after all the betting provisions are met. Whether players may like it or not, these actions are strictly prohibited by the online casinos because it has been part of their conditions that players may only play for recreational purposes only. Online casinos are always on the lookout for bonus hunters. When caught, their promotional privileges are usually revoked.

If you do not want to be labeled as a bonus hunter and have your online privileges revoked, there are certain things that you should avoid. First of all, you should refrain from maintaining multiple accounts when playing in an online casino. Also try not to cash out on your winning before fulfilling the casino’s wagering requirement. You should also try to gamble normally. A sudden increase in the amount that you bet may make the casino throw a red flag at you. And last but not the least, make sure that you have the proper credit information given and avoid having irregularities on your credit card. Wrongful information may compel casinos to bar you from playing on their site and deny you the privilege of availing casino bonuses.

A Few Tips For Blackjack

When I first started showing interest a few years back in playing blackjack, a friend of mine gave me a list of tips and unofficial personal rules; where he got them from I have no idea, but I more or less stuck to them and they served me well, so I figured the time has come to share the wisdom a little.

Choose a low minimum bet table: 5% of your bankroll is around the max that you want to be betting per hand, so playing at a table with a minimum that exceeds that percentage is asking for trouble. The danger is that with a high minimum table you run the risk of loosing your bankroll before without opportunities to regain lost revenue.

Never split 10s: it may be tempting to play the two hands, but 20 isn't far off from 21, so be happy with what you have!

5s Never, 8s Always: a pair of 5s should never be split but a pair of 8s should be split in all circumstances except for when the dealer is showing a 10.

Always split Aces: getting a blackjack is, as they say, the name of the game, so splitting aces gives you two chances to do just that.

Stick on 17; no matter what your gut says, just stick with what you have. Bear in mind that the dealer has to stick on 17, plus if you think even for a second about the number of cards in the deck and how much they add up to you will soon realize that the chances of getting a 4 or less are much lower than the chances of getting a 5 or more - just don't do it!

The fewer decks in use the better the odds are for the player; the biggest leap in the house advantage is between one and two decks, but it does rise, all be it less steeply, with every deck added. Therefore, in a choice between a single deck and multi deck game, always go for the single deck; in a choice between a 6 deck game and an 8 deck game, always go for the 6 deck.

Rules vary from table to table, so the more player-friendly rules a table plays by the better it is for you. Specific rules to look out for are, the surrender rule; double down after splitting pairs; multiple pair splitting; and ace re-splits.

Remember that you're only opponent is the dealer, so don't look at anyone else's hand, it's not your business and it will distract you from your game.

The rest of the advice I received was basic common sense and money management; don't bet anything you're not prepared to loose, set limits, don't gamble when drunk, you know the type. Anyway, I hope these tips will be as useful to you as they were to me.

A Friendly Game Of Texas Holdem?

When playing online Texas holdem there is rarely such thing as a friendly game of poker. If you want to be a winning player at Texas hold em you cannot afford to keep the game friendly. Now you do not have to belittle players and talk trash to win, doing that is simply poor manners and being rude, but you do need to be aggressive in your Texas hold em playing strategy.

A friendly game of Internet Texas holdem consists of not raising the person who is the short stack at the table. A friendly game on Texas holdem online might also include not raising before the flop. There are many techniques that you can use to keep the game friendly, but these friendly techniques are losing techniques.

Particularly when playing a tournament game of free Texas holdem, the goal is to eliminate other players and to be the last one standing. When you get the opportunity to eliminate a player from the tournament you should do so. Allowing another player to remain in the game when you play Texas holdem online is a mistake.

Other players may get frustrated with you when you play Texas holdem aggressively, but your goal is to win, not to make friends. It is acceptable to raise pre flop when you have a good hand, and you should do this even though it may not keep the game friendly. If you are learning how to play Texas hold em you need to be aware that it is appropriate to put another player all in if you have the absolute best hand.

A friendly game of free online Texas holdem would not include a check raise. A check raise is a very effective technique for winning a pot and eventually the game though.

When you play a Texas holdem poker game online you should focus on strategies that result in you winning the game, not making friends.

It is important to be a good sport and to not trash talk though. Trash talking can work against you because other players at the table may make it their sole goal to eliminate you from the game, so be warned.

A Gambling System That Works

Since gambling began, there have been people who have strived to find the perfect gambling system - one that puts the odds so much in the gambler’s favor that riches are almost certainly guaranteed. In all these thousands of years, has anyone ever really found a gambling system that works?

Although there are people who claim to have found systems to beat the odds at any type of gambling, most of the gambling systems that you hear of are for a particular form of gambling; such as Blackjack, Poker, or Roulette. There are many books about systems for particulars areas of gambling, most written by people who have focused a lot of time and energy on their choice of game. There is no arguing that there are people out there who win more at certain games then they lose; just look at the professional Poker players you see on TV these days who live quite comfortably on their winnings. Many of these professionals have written books on how to win at Poker, and more than likely their advice is sound and potentially profitable.

For the serious gambler, the best thing to do is to choose one game - two at the most - and do as much research as possible. Practicing the game helps, but you may not be the kind of person who can come up with winning strategies easily. More often than not a great deal of math is involved, and for some people math just isn’t their strong suit. It’s best to find systems that have already been established by successful gamblers, and see if they work for you. Systems differ with whomever invented them, and it may be worth the time to try several different systems before you decide on which one works best for you. Keep your wagers small until you feel comfortable that a certain system is going to work well for you.

Although systems do exist that can put odds more in the gambler’s favor, one must never forget that gambling means taking risks, and these risks can never really be completely omitted. Sinking your life savings into a gambling system that you believe is foolproof and will put you on the road to riches is a foolish idea, and any reputable professional gambler, no matter how successful, will agree with that. That being said, it certainly doesn’t hurt to test gambling systems by starting with small amounts of money that you can comfortably afford to lose, and seeing which system works best for you. If you win, gamble with your winnings, and set aside the amount that you started with. That advice, by far, is probably the gambling system that will always work best.

Tips For The Beginner GAMBLING AND CASINO Player

#1 Secret Poker Strategy

If you have ever played poker before you know that you can obviously see all the players around you since you play in a circle (unless you’re playing online poker). You just figured out the most important part of poker. You may be thinking that that’s impossible.

You probably think that the most important part is the cards; what cards you get how to use them, ECT... These are very important, you are correct, but it all starts with your ability to use your body language to your advantage. The cards are going to be relatively the same for all the players. Luck usually doesn’t factor in well in poker since everyone has the same chance to get the same cards.

In case luck begins to play a large role in your game then what can you does? A player always has 4 basic choices; you can check, bet or call, raise, or fold. If you are not getting good cards you can always fold right?
This is not always a good idea. You may be leaving large amounts of money on the table in the long run after a few initial folds. Sure you seemingly get away with losing less but you give up the chance to even try. Bluffing is the art of misguidance. You want them to think you have a bad hand one second and the next a great hand with all the best cards that are sure to win you the pot.

How do you accomplish such a thing? Simply with your body language this can be done. If you have good cards act happy. You may not want them to know that you have good cards but it’s a way to change there thinking; now every time you act "happy" they will think you have good cards and may fold.
If you have bad cards and you act happy they might fold because now they are afraid.

What you want to do is create a complicated pattern of sad, happy, indifferent, ecstatic, angry, ECT. Actions for certain hands. You want to throw them off but try and lure them into a safe zone where they think they understand your bluffing pattern and then hit them with the reality. As long as they are trying to keep up with whatever pattern you have, you will have them all under your control.

In one game of poker tournament I was playing in I decided to create very complex poker faces. They where not good they where not bad. I scrunched my face, grabbed my lip and scratched my leg; I did the craziest thing that nobody understood. They had no idea what my faces meant so they assumed that when I didn’t raise that my cards where not good and they would raise and raise. When it came time to show, guess who took home the pot.

The moral of this little story is that you have to be creative. This is step two of poker (after learning the basics and learning them by heart), body language is very important. If you are known as a newbie and you come in they will expect you to show your cards loud and clear through your body language. You can mislead and kill your competition with a good poker face.

1-2-3-4-5-6

Catchalotto’s view on why you should never play 1-2-3-4-5-6 in Lotto

A while ago Camelot, the UK National Lottery Official Operator, used to release combinations that were played most commonly. Unsurprisingly, combination 1-2-3-4-5-6 was one of them in that it was entered into each Lotto Draw by many people. And by many I mean thousands!!! If I recall correctly, at some stage there were about 10,000 tickets purchased for each Lotto draw containing this combination. This brings me to the reason number 1 why such combination should be avoided like the plague.

REASON NUMBER 1:

There are so many tickets being bought containing combination 1-2-3-4-5-6, the jackpot payout would be very low indeed should this combination win!

Let’s say you play 1-2-3-4-5-6 and it does win (yippee!). Let’s say you are in to share an average £3,000,000 jackpot with 10,000 other jackpot winners. This would mean that your share of winnings would be a miserable £300! Yeah, okay, still good money, beats the tenner that you get for guessing 3 numbers, but definitely this is not the money you have in mind when you dream about winning the jackpot, right?!

There are many reasons why so many of us play this combination. It’s easy to remember… It’s easy to mark on a lottery ticket… Some are lazy/short of time to pick out a good non-biased non-ordered combination…Statistically combination 1-2-3-4-5-6 has the same chances of being drawn (1 in 13,983,816), so why not play it… Some people play the same combination every time, so it could be that they played this combination for a while and do not want to give it up now in case if it does come up… Camelot no longer announces combinations that are played most commonly, so many are simply unaware how many people they will have to share their jackpot with should this combination be drawn.

Whatever the reason, it’s a pound down the drain when 1-2-3-4-5-6 is played because of the above reason alone. There is however another reason why you should NOT play this combination.

REASON NUMBER 2:

As mentioned above, statistically the combination 1-2-3-4-5-6 has the same chances of being drawn, in other words you have 1 chance of winning the jackpot with this combination and 13,983,815 chances of NOT winning it. That’s statistically.

However, if you look at vast amount of literature that is now available with regard to lottery analysis and probability laws, you would see that most authors give out a slightly different story. Most believe that the combination 1-2-3-4-5-6 is biased and is guaranteed to loose because it is far out of balance to come up in a random drawing. This opinion is based on vast research undertaken by many who analysed the draws of past lottery games from around the world!!! If six consecutive numbers have never been drawn in any of the lotteries worldwide, and six numbers from one number group have never been drawn either, then what chance does the combination 1-2-3-4-5-6 have?

It is believed that the least likely combinations to be drawn are those at the tail ends of a bell curve. These are the lowest six numbers and the highest six numbers of any lotto game.

Now onto the good news. The good news is that Lottorino can help with Lotto combination selection. It incorporates many filters and checks whether a certain combination is biased or not. Lottorino consults probability laws rather than those of possibility. The idea is that whilst it’s possible for any combination to be drawn, certain combinations are less probable to come up.

If you ask Lottorino to analyse 1-2-3-4-5-6, it would assign a low Lottorino score of 2%, meaning that this combination seems to be biased in some way and as a result assigns the probability of it being drawn as 2% (the percentage would depend how many rules/filters have been broken). By sieving out this and many other combinations, your lotto ticket simply stands better chances of being a winning one!

If you look at Lottorino’s scores of all officially drawn UK Lotto combinations in the past, you would see that some do appear to have a low Lottorino score (i.e. Lottorino would have advised NOT to play it), but 95% of time, Lottorino score is 50% or above (Catchalotto’s recommended advisable limit). So 95% of time, the odds would have been indeed improved by Lottorino.

3 Card Poker Strategy

When you break out the 52-card deck and deal a hand of 3-card poker, the first strategy you need is a firm understanding of the rules. Rather than competing against other players, you are competing against the dealer. You need a better hand than the dealer (and at least a pair) to win. Each of you is dealt three cards, and the cards are shuffled after each hand. Because there are fewer ways to make a straight with 3 cards than a flush, straights rank higher. Aces are high or low.

You can make two bets: the Ante and the Pair Plus. The Ante is the fee charged to you for playing the hand. The Pair Plus is your bet that you will get a hand with a pair or higher. You don’t have to make both bets, but you do at least have to bet the Ante to stay in the game.

You ante when you put your bet on the game table’s Ante spot. Both you and the dealer are dealt three cards face down. Your next decision? Are these cards good enough for you to bet or should you fold? Fold and lose the ante. Bet and you place your bet that equals the ante in the game table’s Play spot. Win and you get the Ante and the Pair Plus payouts.

The dealer has to have a Queen or better to stay in the game. If not, you get payment on their ante only if it pays even money (1 to 1) – and as long as you didn’t fold.

Ante Payout

- A straight gets a 1 to 1 payout.
- A three of a kind gets a 4 to 1 payout.
- A straight flush gets a 5 to 1 payout.

Pair Plus Payout

- A pair gets a 1 to 1 payout.
- A flush gets a 4 to 1 payout.
- A straight gets a 6 to 1 payout.
- A three of a kind gets a 30 to 1 payout.
- A straight flush gets a 40 to 1 payout.

Remember these tips to help your strategy:

- If you have a Queen or better, bet the Pair Plus. If not, fold.
- A dealer will get a Queen about 66% of the time.
- The house has a 3.4% advantage.

3 Tips For The Beginner Poker Player

So you want to be a poker player? Poker is a very challenging game although gameplay is relatively simple. Before you start throwing money around familiarize yourself with the rules of betting, calling, raising, and folding. Also, it is important to know the rank of each hand, because you do not want to bet on a hand that YOU think is a winner. Below are 3 other tips on helping you get started as a poker player.

1. Start by playing with play money- This is probably the best way to get started. You do not have to worry about blowing your whole savings account trying to become a good poker player. Start out playing for fun with friends or go online and play with play money. Numerous sites offer this service and you should take advantage of it.

2. Experiment with different strategies- Find the poker style that suits you best. Perhaps you don’t have what it takes to be an aggressive player, so don’t try this strategy if it doesn’t work for you. Don’t stick to one strategy in the beginning. You’ll get read like a book by better players and you will end up getting very frustrated after getting bullied around the table by these people.

3. Don’t get a big head- You may get lucky and win a few big hands when you start out. Don't get cocky though. Keep a level head when you are up and also when you are down. This will help you to concentrate better and, in turn, play better poker.

Hopefully these things will help you as you are learning the game of poker. Poker takes a little bit of luck, but this will eventually run out and the skillful players will rise to the top. By following these rules, you can be the last one standing at your poker table.

4 Gambling Mistakes New Poker Players Make

Poker is a game of chance, but there is still a large amount of skill involved when playing. Many new poker players make gambling mistakes that cost them a lot of money and get them out of tournaments. Some novices play free poker online and never win because of terrible gambling techniques. However, by knowing four common gambling mistakes that are made by new players, you can greatly increase your chances of winning games and tournaments.

1. Going all-in too often or in obvious desperation. In many tournaments with play money, some players go all-in the first hand. It may work for a few times, but after a while, someone will call you. In that case, you better hope that you have actually good cards. All-in can be used to get players to fold, but it should really only be used if you have a solid hand and could possibly double your stack. People should bluff very infrequently with an all-in. Going all-in with a bad hand is what many people call “bad poker.” Sometimes you can get lucky, but the best players bet carefully.

2. Under betting. If you have a good starting hand, don’t be afraid to raise pre-flop, or bet high after the flop. If you have a great hand, then slow playing can work very well. However, when you do start placing bets in a no-limit game, they should not be too small. One reason is that you won’t end up winning as much money if you bet small. Another reason is that you are giving incentives for many other players to stay in the hand. Therefore, you are giving other players chances to hit a hand that is better than yours. The best players bet just the right amount to get it where only one or two players call. In that case, your odds for winning are a lot better.

3. Over betting. Some players get very excited when they have a good hand. They may go all-in, or lay down outrageous bets. Not only is it a waste of a good hand, but also people can start to read you. If you constantly over bet only when you have something, then people will always fold and you won’t win money. However, if you don’t have anything, then people will also know because you aren’t laying down monstrous bets.

4. Finally, it is important to know when to fold. The best poker players are constantly watching other players, and guessing who could have better hands than they have. If someone bets high, and you know you have the best possible hand (which occurs rarely), then you can call. However, you need to know the odds of the other person having a better hand. Additionally, many new poker players call large bets when they don’t have anything, they just need a draw card. This is the worst type of gamble. Seldom will a person get that final card they need for a straight or a three-of-a-kind. Knowing the odds is key to playing good poker.

New poker players are often very easy targets for experienced players. Many new poker players make gambling mistakes that can be capitalized on. In order to avoid those mistakes, it is important to study the odds in poker, analyze what other players could have, and bet intelligently. If you do that, then you will have a fairly successful poker playing experience.

5 Easy Ways to Improve Your Bingo

Bingo is an international game played by millions of people the world over. Many play the game for enjoyment, a social activity or just to gamble at an over all easy game. Because of the relative easiness of the game, there is always room to improve the play of your game. Here are the ten easiest ways to improve your bingo the next time you go to the bingo hall.

1) Bingo is a game of concentration and focus during the game. Make sure that you are always in control of the game. This means paying attention when the numbers are called and focusing on your numbered cards.

2) Bingo players that play bingo seriously know that the early bird gets the worm. Arriving early to the bingo hall allows you the chance to buy a larger variety of cards, or with a larger difference of numbers varied through the cards. This alone will help raise your chances of winning, because numbers that are spaced too closely together or in clumps tend to be played as dead numbers throughout the game.

3) Experienced players know that having too many cards in front of you during the game can be a distraction and can actually hamper you as you search for the numbers on your cards. It is actually better to play a fewer amount of cards to make sure that you will not get passed by while the numbers are being called. One bad thing in bingo is searching for a number and the caller continues the game and you mistake marking a card because you have too many and it costs you the bingo.

4) Talking during play is a general no no, so I am adding this in just because it can make a difference while you play. During the game, if someone near you is talking and you cannot hear the numbers being called, you will find it very frustrating and aggravating. This is a two way street, not only for someone sitting near you, but also for you as well. So it is best not to talk to others except during the breaks between games. It will also help you concentrate on what you are doing while you are playing.

5) During the general play of the game, it is common to mark a card incorrectly. Due to this, it is recommended to use several different colored daubers to correct a mistake marked on the card. This will allow you to know what exactly is happening on your cards as well as allowing the judge or person judging to know if you correctly hit a bingo.

These are all very easy ways to help improve your bingo with the most amount of ease. Even just working on one rule at a time will greatly improve how you play bingo and increase your chances of winning.

5 Reasons Why Online Bingo Is So Popular

Online Bingo was a relatively minor industry as recently as the year 2000. But their has been an explosion of popularity in the six years since. The world's growing familiarity with the internet is one explanation for the game's online proliferation. But there are several specific reasons why more people every year stay home from the bingo hall and play the game from the comfort of their own homes.

1. THE IMPROVEMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY: When interet Bingo first got started, the experience couldn't match what you found in the bingo hall. People preferred the sights and sounds of real world bingo to simply having a bingo number pop up on the screen.

The online experience has changed. These days, most sites have a voice actor to mimic the bingo callers you'll find in live action settings. These sites tend to have flashy graphics and sounds of the bingo hall, which are meant to enhance your experience. But what makes contemporary online bingo so entertaining is the various interactions with your fellow players.

2. THE CAMARADERIE: You might think playing online wouldn't be a social experience. Actually, it's quite the opposite. Online bingo sites have Chat Rooms which mimic the table talk found in bingo halls.

Most sites offer a variety of chat rooms. The choices are divided into specific subjects, from the state of bingo gaming to current events. If you prefer, you can enter age-specific chat rooms. Friendships can form with people you would never have met otherwise.

You can play bingo while chatting with players from all over the world. You can make friends from Japan, Hungary or Eritrea. I mention the last country, because I met a friend from there in an online Bingo hall. I'd never heard of such a country before.

The people you meet playing Bingo online are the type you'll meet in a live bingo parlour. They tend to be friendly and talkative and share a love of the laid-back bingo camaraderie.

On the rare occasion that isn't the case, chat rooms are moderated by employees of the online bingo sites. This assures that the bingo players stay in line.

3. THE CONVENIENCE: It might be hard to get to the bingo parlour these days, due to job, family or health considerations. Online bingo is convenient for those players who don't have the night in the week for live bingo games.

Online bingo rooms are open 24 hours per day. You can play for a quarter of an hour or all night long, depending on your gaming needs. If getting a babysitter is too much trouble, simply wait until the kids go to bed and go online. If the weather conditions are bad, stay at home and play on the computer.

4. THE COMFORTS OF HOME: If there is something about the local bingo parlour you don't like, just stay at home in your comfort zone. If you don't like cigarette smoke, that won't be a problem in your den or bed room. If you try to avoid places liquor is served, stay at home and away from temptation.

And, of course, if you want to play bingo, but don't want the hassle of a talkative neighbor, you can play in solitude. The online experience lets each person control his or her gaming preferences. You are master of the situation.

5. SELECTION: Online Bingo is a highly competitive business. There are literally hundreds of sites on the internet. They are competing for customers, so the online parlours are willing to give compensations and perks you won't get at your local bingo hall. So if you want to shop for the best deal in bingo, it is likely you will find that deal on the worldwide web and not down the street at the only bingo game in town.

5 Things To Consider When You’re Thinking Of Playing At On Online Casino.

Online Casinos try very hard to create the “real-world” gaming experience on your home pc. The best casino software offers astonishingly realistic graphics along with fast paced action and a user friendly interface. While most of today’s online casinos do their very best to ensure that the games are fun and fair, as an online casino newbie, here’s a few thing you should consider before you plunk down your money.

1) Read the fine print! Before you even consider playing for real money you need to know the rules. Some casinos charge a fee to send your funds, others restrict how frequently you can withdraw funds. "Look before you leap", find a set of rules that you can live with before you make a deposit

2) How does the casino handle customer support? Is there a toll free number for you to call? Do they offer real time chat mode support? Is support simply handled via email? Better casinos will have several convenient ways for you to contact them. Here’s a tip; don't be afraid to call their toll free support line and ask a few general questions, just to get a better feel for the casino.

3) What do other players have to say about the Casino? Visit the various online gambling forums and see what others are saying. Reputable online casinos do their best to keep their customers happy. Disgruntled players can cause quite a few problems for a casino with only a few mouse clicks. With that said, if you see a rant against a particular casino, try to determine if it was simply posted by an unhappy player who lost his money. In other words, go deeper then just looking at a single post; see if others share this player’s view.

4) Understand how the bonus structure works. Because competition is so fierce, virtually every online casino will give you a bonus for signing up with them, this is very nice, but there are always strings attached. First, there are almost always play through requirements. In other words, if the casino is giving you $50, you’ll have to bet that money some number of times before you can cash it out. Also, there are often restrictions on the games you can play using your “free money”. Games with a smaller house edge (like blackjack for example) are sometimes excluded from the games you can play using the bonus money. Also, there may be maximum cash out amount when you’re playing with the bonus money. So once again, it’s up to you to read the fine print and make sure you understand what the restrictions are when playing with the bonus money.

5) The Edge is always with the casino! While we all dream of hitting that huge jackpot and being set for life, the odds against that ever happening are simply astronomical. Gambling, whether it’s online or in Vegas, is designed to be a fun way to spend some time – if you win a few bucks’ great, but more then likely you’ll wind up with less money then you started with. That’s the simple truth. Gamble for the thrill and the excitement, not for the rent.

5 Tips For Winning At Video Poker

Video Poker combines both Luck and skill. The luck part is the cards that are randomly dealt to the player. The skill part encompasses much more then simply knowing what to hold and what to fold. In this article we'll discuss some of the things every video poker player should be doing, regardless of their game play strategy.

1. Only Play At Full Pay Machines

One of the smartest things any potential video poker player can do is to check the payout schedule before he or she starts playing. The payout schedule tells you how much you'll be paid for each winning hand. In a Jacks or Better Video Poker game 9/6 is considered full pay. That simply means that 9 coins are paid out for a Full House and 6 coins are paid out for a Flush. Many casinos pay out less then 9/6, meaning that in the long run, you'll simply win less money.

2. Always Play Max Coins

A Mistake many novice players make is to play fewer coins, thinking this will keep them in the game longer. The problem with that theory is many machines will give you proportionately more coins for hitting a Royal Flush with max coins then they will for hitting with less then the max. If you're worried about going through your bankroll too quickly, play at a low coin size. Or, if you're really not sure how to play, us a play for free version of the game until you've gotten your feet wet.

3. Plan How Much You're Willing To Lose --And Stick To It.

There is a lot of luck involved in winning Video Poker. Unfortunately, too many players keep pumping coins into the machine, thinking their luck is bound to change. Successful players know that some days you have it and some you don't. Before you start playing, have a set amount that you're willing to lose, once that money is gone quit playing.

4. Take Your Time

Video poker is a game of man against machine. Always remember that there is no time limit. Make sure that you carefully review your cards, with each hand. Take as much time as you need, no one is waiting for you so don't feel pressured to make your move. Don't hit that draw button until you're ready.

5. Take advantage of the "Play for Free" Games

Novice players need experience; obviously the best way to gain experience is to play. Fortunately, many online casinos offer "Play for free" versions of some maybe even all of their video poker versions. Take advantage of these and develop your strategy before you plunk down your money.

5 Tips to Improve Your Heads Up Poker Play

You’ve finally made it! You’ve played Texas Hold’em for hours and hours, dodged some scary all ins, caught a couple of breaks and now you are sitting at the final table playing heads up poker. Once the joy of making the final table has subsided you will have to get down to business and stake out your opponent. Hopefully by now you have got a good read on the player, their tendencies, strengths and weaknesses. However, it may be important to know that poker players often switch modes when it comes down to heads up play. A poker players heads up play may be completely different than their regular play. Here are some tips to help you improve your heads up Texas Hold’em poker strategy.

Tip#1 – An Ace in the Hole

The #1 rule of heads up poker play is that when you have an ace as a hole card you will usually be in a dominant position pre flop. You should then raise/re-raise strong to see what the opponent’s reaction will be. Often times an opponent will fold (depending on the specific style of the poker player) for fear of the ace or a pocket pair. Sometimes you may get called but remember, in heads up poker players have a tendency to make loose calls. Odds are you will still be in a dominant position.

Tip #2 – Lower Your Expectations

While playing heads up Texas Hold’em poker, chances are that you cannot afford to wait on a good hand. A quality hand in heads up poker is not the same as when playing with a bigger group. You may have to settle with J-6 offsuit and just see what happens. The odds are that many times your opponent will have a bad looking hand as well.

Tip #3 – Try To Pick Up A Betting Pattern

Many poker players have an extremely difficult time playing heads up. Some collapse under the pressure and others become painstakingly obvious in how they bet in heads up. Make sure you keep an eye on your opponents betting habits. Every now and then you may want to call a hand that you know your probably beat in just to see what the opponent has. If you can pick up an opponents betting habits it’s almost as if they are showing you their hands.

Tip #4 – Mix Up Your Play

Even if you are not getting the best of cards you must always try to mix up your play to throw your opponent off your scent. Raise with 9-4 suited. Call with A-3 offsuit. This way your opponent cannot pick up a good betting pattern from you. Many poker players are not great when it comes to heads up play. By throwing your opponent off your scent it possible that he/she will be enticed into making a careless all-in call. All it takes is one big mistake in heads up play and you’ll have your opponent right where you want them.

Tip #5 – Don’t Over Do the “All-In” Call

Please do not go over board going all-in. This is like leaving your hand up to fate. There is some luck involved in poker but you don’t want to just get by on being lucky. Besides, doing this is a clear give away that you may be less advanced and a veteran will wait for their chance and BURRY you. Mix up your play, raises, calls and folds, and in the end the better player usually wins out.

6 Helpful Online Slot Tips

Gambling is a world where it seems as though everyone’s trying to give you money. But the reality is that all the casinos and gaming dens lure you hoping to see your wallet shrink in size. Every gambler dreams of that one big win, but for most it remains a dream.


Slot machines are a comparatively less harmful way to take charge of how much you loose and win. It is a way wherein you can play with a relaxed mind and don’t need to plot, plan, or guess. Here the luck takes charge. Well, almost!


Here are a few tips to help you come out a winner when gambling on the slot machines:


• Don’t play on borrowed cash. This will only make you tense and keep that jackpot miles away from you. A positive and relaxed mind attracts treasures as you are less prone to overlook clues and information that could lead you to a win.

• Be very clear as to why you are near the slot machines at all. Are you there to enjoy yourself while you win some money doing ‘just so’, or are you after the ‘big win’. This will govern the type of slot machine that you will choose because the machines for small frequent small pay outs and less frequent big jackpot will be different from each other.

• Read your destiny in the symbols on the slot machine. When you select a slot machine, check how many symbols it has. The number of symbols is directly proportional to the combinations that can be made and therefore the number of times you are likely to win. But remember – more wins mean less winning amount.

• When to go for that biggie? Small wins will not keep you satisfied for long. Your palms will itch to play for the progressive big jackpot. Do not succumb to this desire until the progressive jackpot becomes exceptionally big. History says that when the progressively building jackpot becomes really big, it is very likely to burst. Wait for such an opportunity.

• For your own safety play slots at reputable online casinos that offer a bonus. This will not only give you peace of mind but also generous bonuses to play on.

• Remember to stop. Many players forget this simple rule and loose all the money they earned from playing slots and sometimes much more.
It is easy to get carried away when you see the money roll in. True winners quit when they are still at a ‘high’.

6 Ways To Securely Choose A Decent Internet Casino. Frauds Won’t Pass!

There are thousands Internet casino sites online. You’ll never look every single one through. But if you decide to try a bit of staking at the roulette or to play blackjack, it is worth spending your time on choosing a suitable casino.

It is actually quite simple to pick an Internet casino. There exist a small characteristic set, according to which you’ll be able to easily value any casino. What are those features you wonder?

1.Web site design
If you see a poor fudged design, run away as fast as you can from such a casino. A site of a good Internet casino is to be an excellent one. Nobody would play at Caesar Palace if it looked like a foul hovel. Why should things go different on the Net?

2.Licence
Look through the site. See if there are any links to the licence. Any Internet casino, irrespective of the country its server based in, must have a licence. And don’t be afraid of those off-shore licenced casinos. Though they have liberal licensing conditions there, it’s too expensive for frauds.

3.Support
A good Internet casino has a good client support. Test it. Ask any question. Let it be a most obvious or foolish one, but ask it. And note the time. The reply should be prompt. On the site there should also be telephone numbers for feedback. Their absence is a sign that you might get nicely left here.

4.Bonuses
Bonuses are another stage of testing an Internet casino. There should be some. The casino doesn’t have to grant necessarily money bonuses, but promo actions should take place regularly there. Try to find some bonuses provided by the Internet casino jointly with payment operating partners like Neteller. Neteller and organizations alike won’t cooperate with just anyone. Having such bonuses is an excellent sign for an online casino.

5.Software
A casino should have licenced software. Best of all it should be software provided by one of the leaders of the industry such as RTG, Microgaming, etc. If the casino has a self-made software, it should be verified by a competent organization. Creating and licensing a good Internet casino soft is rather costly. Those who spent their money on it are likely to play fair.

6.Community opinion
If the reliability of the Internet casino still seems doubtful to you, apply to the gamblers’ community. Take a search through Google using the name of the Internet casino and the word
“scam” as key-words. Then look through a couple of links found. That will give you the final answer whether you deal with a decent Internet casino. Be careful though! Many gamblers use to blame the casino for fairly losing their money.

And there it is! 6 simple tests will sift out the dubious casinos. Only the best ones will remain. Just place money on deposit and enjoy the game.

7 Tips to Becoming A Smart Gambler - Part Two Of Two

Last time we spoke, I started to share with you my 7 tips to becoming a smart gambler. To recap, we went over three vital smart gambling tips-knowing the house edge, establishing a bankroll, and always taking possession of your money.

Today, I'll continue on this great journey of ours. We all should strive to be smart gamblers. The last 4 smart gambling tips will fly at you fast, so get ready. And remember, these are just primers to get you started. If you're super serious, you could go deeper. For instance, you could read an entire book's worth of information on bankroll alone. Here are smart gambling tips 3 - 7:

3. Know thy game

Don't play any casino game seriously unless you know it really well. It's one thing to spend a few bucks while learning or just having fun, but it's another to play it over and over without knowing the fine details of odds, strategy, etc.

4. Know more than one game

It's fine to “specialize” in one game, but you should know two games or more well. There will be times when it's smart to walk away from a game. Maybe your head just isn't working well at that time or the game is too hot the wrong way.

5. Slots are for fun

Show me one player that's played slots a ton and has won a lot and I'll show you either someone that happened to get lucky by hitting a very large jackpot or a liar. Slots are for fun, not profit. There's nothing wrong with enjoying them in doses, but don't make this your main game.

6. A tip is a loss

This is for the guys and gals playing in the real world. It's a common courtesy for players to tip good dealers or the cocktail waitress. This is fine, but it's money lost, so you need to treat it as such. If you're playing $1 Blackjack and you're up $10 when the cocktail waitress comes around think for a minute. If you tip $1, you've just lost 10% of your profits. I'm not saying don't tip, but you need to keep it relative. And all money out is money lost-good cause or not.

7. Love what you do

It doesn't matter if Baccarat (House Bet) is the best bet in the house if the game bores you to tears. You've got to love what you're doing. If not, you'll get mentally lazy and that's when money is lost for sure. Stick with your passions. And there you go. That's 7 solid tips to becoming a smart gambler.

8 Golden Rules for Betting on Horses

People assume that betting on horses is based on luck, and that the only method to win money while doing it is to get inside information. By inside information, people generally refer to match fixes or some other knowledge that one or more of the horses is sick. This might have been true once, but in todays modern world where the gambling is institutionalized and checked daily, this sort of thing rarely (if ever) occurs.

So What Then? Should you gamble according to unexplainable hunches and simply hope for the best?
There is a better option. Base your bets on information that you collect about the different horses and then make a calculated guess. I have listed here the 8 Golden Rules you should look out for when judging how good a particular horse will fair in the race you are going to bet on.

1. Check out the weather, and then check how the horses in the race fared accordingly. Certain horses have a tendency to outlast others in the rain, while others charge unstoppable to the finish line on cloudy days. Why? I don't know, but what's important is that its true, and it has worked for me.

2. Do not think that older horses run slower than three-year old ones as the season comes to a close. This is just not true. What you have to check is how many races each horse did run. Sometimes horses compete in too many races and this slows them down, but this has nothing to do with age.

3. Surprisingly, though you might think that there is a direct ratio between the weight of the jockey and how fast the horse can run, but this is not true. Since most of the jockeys weigh approximately the same, its actually the relatively heavier ones who manage to win.

4. Similarly, heavier horses can run faster than lighter ones, but only up to a point. A colt weighs about a hundred pounds more than fillies and thus they are more likely to win long distance races.

5. Just because a horse has new blinkers does not mean that the horse will run faster. I know this sounds crazy, but a friend I met at the horse-track offered me this piece of advice, and I had to refute it to spare the heartache from any who do fall for it.

6. Check the pedigree of the horses. Remember to keep whatever information you find. You can even buy one of the books on certain horses at your local bookstores. After you have gathered all the relevant information keep in mind that a colt doesn't need as much of a pedigree as a filly to run very fast.

7. Don't rely too much on pedigree at the lower class races. This is the place where those horses with a weak pedigree tend to shine.

8. Female jockies are starting to make a name for themselves, so don't underestimate them when they race. Lately, they have been winning admirably.

Use the above 8 Golden Rules of Betting on Horses the next time you go to the track or enter an online sportsbook to place your bet so that your wager will have a better chance of winning.
