Re: Poker

I see it a lot at casino's. Most people don't want to build pots. Their bet sizing is all wrong or they shove on the flop after hitting massively (depending on stack sizes and blinds etc). Too quick to take the hand down. They get all giddy and excited. There's a tell lol.

Re: Poker

I'd never shove on a dry flop if I'd hit a set. You want someone with top pair crap kicker calling. You don't want them folding. You want their chips. If they hit runner runner to beat your hand there's bugger all you can do about it. You played the hand out how it should be played. You're just damn...

Re: Poker

I used to live and breath poker. I still do but don't play as much as I did. I was at a casino nearly every night at one stage a few years ago.

Re: Poker

Poker's probably easier to make money nowadays then it was. Too many just rock up thinking it's an easy game. I put a lot of time and effort in when I first started by watching the pro's/tournaments and reading books. The missus plays too and she's always asking me what I'd do in certain situations....

Re: Poker

Casinos are superb for poker, played in many. The downside to online is the speed. I've made a lot more money online as you can find the weaker opponents quicker - which is ultimately how you make the most money. Which casinos have you played in?

Re: England v New Zealand

New Zealand batted first. So they set the total runs needed to get. If this match had been played years ago NZ would've won if it was tied by way of losing less wickets. As the game was still tied after 1 super over each the next best thing to separate them was who had got the most boundaries in the...
