How to Feel Like You're in a Casino Playing poker from home

After thousands of chips to analyze the history of the casino games, some manufacturers have achieved their own avant-garde designs. For a poker chip Interestingly, they found that they needed to be legitimate and tell a story to be. The best teams gather to become a Las Vegas style and a new look at the history of the game chips for four reasons become higher. Inlays, edge spots, shapes and materials.

Inlay design is the most important component of the manufacturing process and each chip is designed by a team of artists. You need to make sure that each overlay model uses advanced techniques and every chip seems as if it could have come directly from the casino floor. Each insert tells a story and evokes a sense of nostalgia.

An approach in four colors on board the points makes them more interesting chips. Each poker chip has a basic color and three accent colors in the edge. All games use a different color system. This process creates an exciting and wonderful variety of colors on the poker table. The edge points are also unique and exciting.

Avoid simple approach 8-band or a boring rectangle two-color design edge points of the chip. Triangles, tri-band, multi-colored rectangles and rectangles are part of a network of points most exciting point.

The key is to design unique and interesting shapes that create a stored print (known as shape marks) around the chip. You need to make sure that their poker chip systems are not just boring flat discs. Mold marks give the chip an identity even before placing the insert. Casinos use to create a mark for uniqueness and brand. If your chips are not traces to shape, then they will not look or feel authentic. The shape marks a poker chip texture that lend security and authenticity. The shape marks give poker chips personality.

The use of the best materials and clay compounds during the manufacturing process is essential. The best chips use only casino-quality materials in their forms. Not only are fleas seem to have left the casino floor, but feel authentic.

When you design a new poker chip, the best manufacturers create fictional casinos to help bring the authenticity to the other aspects of poker games. One of these popular types of poker chip-sets is called "Bluff Canyon Casino". It consists of clay poker chips comes in various types of account and wooden carousel for lower numbers or an aluminum case for sets has more. These chips are different beliefs. The Inlay Bluff Canyon is located on a Greek key shaped poker chip. These chips twelve threads in groups of three have their marks to edge. The design of this chip is similar to the Venetian Casino chip popularly popular poker. The insert itself uses a group of evergreen trees like its fictional logo, but sends a strong exterior theme. The target casino fiction "Bluff Canyon Casino" is written on top of each chip. The label is placed large and near the lower end of the ladder.

Learning How to win at Texas Holdem Poker

The fascination with Texas Hold'em Poker continues to grow. The successful young poker players of the World Series of Poker attracted the attention of young people around the world. Jonathan Duhamel, a student and part-time professional poker player, became the Main Event Champion of 2010 World Series of Poker at the age of 22, winning nearly $ 9 million. Add to that the fact that the best eight players who were still in their twenties, who each won at least one million dollars and you can see why the calling of Texas Holdem Poker has been a huge explosion of interest. Duhamel in the footsteps of the other young champions, Daniel Neagreanu, PHIP Hellmuth, Chris Moneymaker and Peter Eastgate, who have risen to superstar status by beating in the World Series of Poker.

For the novice poker, a basic plan for the development of poker skills should be part of your learning strategy.

The learning process begins with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of poker. There is basic knowledge about the classification of poker hands, the understanding of the concepts of Paris, check, raise, re-raise, bluff and folds. The ability to calculate probabilities and mathematical probabilities is a great ability to have. But for many players who are not so happy, a basic understanding of the strength of the hand necessary. Knowing that the hands are strong and their hands are low and the chances for making a hand treated with the cards is a basic skill. Without this basic knowledge and skills of poker, the success of poker at any level will be difficult to achieve.

How to detect Collusion in Online Poker Rooms

Poker is a highly competitive game where
 the winners stand to win large amounts of
 cash for beating their opponents. 
Online poker is no different.
 As such, player cheating is an issue.
 Some players will do anything they can to gain
 an edge and increase their chances of winning,
 even if it means resorting to cheating.
 The relative anonymity of internet poker facilitates this.
The good news is that online poker rooms
are well aware of player cheating and
 the tricky schemes that people invent.
 Here’s a rundown of some of the
 common methods employed by online poker cheats,
 and how the online poker rooms have responded to them.

All-in Protection/Abuse

This is a method of cheating by abusing
 a featured called “all-in protection
” or “disconnect protection”,
 which was designed to help online
 poker players.
 Basically, it works as such – when
a poker player times out or disconnects
from an online poker room
(a rather common occurrence, given the
 fickle nature of many internet connections),
 any money that the player has invested in
 the pot will be protected. When the player
 logs back in,
they’ll be entitled to receive the money they
 invested, since it apparently wasn’t their own 
fault that they were disconnected.
 If the disconnected poker player wins, he wins the part of the
 pot that he bet on, and the player with the next best hand wins
 any side pots that happened after the disconnect.
Some poker players try to exploit this feature.
 They intentionally disconnect their internet connection
 when they’re afraid to make a poker decision, in order
to hold onto their invested money instead of
 folding and losing it.
 This is a clear-cut example of cheating and
  online poker rooms are well aware of this exploit and have responded.
 This type of cheating is nowhere near as much of a
problem as it was in the past.
There was a time when virtually all online poker
sites had a feature called “disconnect protection”.
 Many online poker rooms have completely stopped offering disconnect protection. Full Tilt and Poker Stars will give players adequate time to reconnect, should there be a legitimate disconnection problem. But if they fail to get back to
 the action within the allocated time, their hand is folded
 if further betting actions occur. This completely
 eliminates the all-in abuse cheats from these
online poker rooms.
Other online poker sites that still offer disconnect 
protection nearly always have more tables that
 don’t offer it. These are listed as “no all-in” or “no DP
 (disconnect protection)” tables, which turn off the disconnect protection feature for players who are concerned 
about the exploit. If you ever notice what you deem 
to be all-in abuse at your online card room, 
contact support staff immediately.
In addition, all poker rooms prevent this type
 of cheating by monitoring disconnects.
 Online poker players that are suspected of this type
 of abuse will have their account banned and players
 victim to this type of cheating are often eligible for 
monetary compensation.


Collusion is basically defined as two players
covertly working together in order to increase
 one player’s chances of winning. To get an idea
 of how this works, imagine two or more friends
 logged into the same online poker room, playing
at the same table. They share information about their cards
 in order to get an idea of what cards aren’t remaining in the deck. Worse still, they work together to increase the pot size
 or to squeeze other players out of a hand.
 Presumably, they’ll share their profits when the game is over.
Collusion is often difficult to spot because it’s often
 hard to tell if players are working together or
 simply making decisions on their own based
on their individual poker strategies. A player
folding AQ before the flop might be doing it
 because his friend has AK, or he might
 simply be a very tight player who is only
 willing to pursue absolute premium hands.
Player cheating of this nature, however, is actually
 easier to detect than you might think. Online poker
 sites have a complete hand history database for all
 of their poker players. They know if certain players
 have a history of playing on the same tables.
Their databases are automatically scanned
 with complex algorithms that search for any
 signs of collusion. When something fishy is
spotted the staff will manually review the action.
Online poker rooms take multiple steps against
 collusion and, accept on the rarest of occasion,
 it is not an issue when playing online poker.
 Having said that, online poker rooms take
reports of suspected collusion very seriously.
 Poker Stars is widely considered one of the
 best sites when it comes to reviewing these
situations thoroughly. Regardless of which
online poker room you play at, be sure to
contact customer service immediately if you suspect
 player cheating, including collusion, at your table.


It is against the terms of most online poker rooms
 to sign up under more than one player account.
 However, this doesn’t stop people doing so –
 and in many ways the online poker rooms only
have themselves to blame for this. Most of the
 cases where players have create additional
accounts are usually because the player wasn’t
receiving rake-back on their existing account,
and therefore paying more than other players.
But there’s a big difference between creating a
 new player account and the true definition of
 multi-accounting, which can be a form of collusion.
Multi-accounting is when an online poker player
 who plays under more than one account at the
 same time on the same site. A player might enter
 an online poker tournament under several different
accounts in order to increase their chances of cashing.
 In some rare cases they could even end up on the
 same table, which would obviously be a huge
 advantage (see collusion, above) and unfair
 on the other players. The good news is that
this form of cheating is fairly easy for the online
poker rooms to spot, and players who attempt
to cheat in this way will face serious consequences.

Online Poker Bots

Poker bots are software programs that have
been designed to analyze a poker game,
particularly starting hands and community
 cards, and make decisions for the player.
A poker bot can be set up to play poker for
 real money while the actual player sleeps,
 goes to work, or just generally doesn’t pay
 any attention to the game himself.
The simple fact is that online poker sites
 disapprove of bots, and that you should
 consider them to be a form of player cheating.

Poker bots are not really as big of a problem
 as some angry poker forum posters
 (that may have simply been beaten fairly)
 would like people to believe, and get far
 more attention that they deserve. In the
 rare event that a poker bot has been
 identified in the past, it has been shown
 to be a quite unsuccessful technique.
 Bot algorithms are no match for even the
amateur poker player and sites found guilty
 of using poker bots (however ineffective they
 may be) have always failed or been
 forced out of the online poker market.


There’s no denying that cheating occurs.
 It happens in live poker games, and it happens
 in online poker games. There will always be
 cheaters trying to scam people when there’s
 money involved. But it isn’t nearly as bad as
 you might think. Online poker rooms know 
that dishonest players will try and cheat given
 the opportunity, and they put a lot of time and 
resources into making the games fair.
 If you truly suspect foul play at an
 online card room, simply cash out 
and take your money elsewhere.

The Fear of Losing at Poker

Aside from the most obvious, I have identified three distinct risks from losing that may affect your poker game – and then their antidote. Let’s take them all in turn.

#1. Loss of self control 

Self control is one of the twin towers of winning play (the other being correct poker strategy). Knowing the correct move for the situation is absolutely irrelevant if you don’t have the self control to execute it. If, for example, you have a well defined and winning list of starting hands to suit your situation but you are too impatient to fold the hands that aren’t on your list, then it hardly matters if you have a list of correct starting hands in the first place.
Losing puts that self control at risk. In its most apparent manifestation a player loses a lot and then goes on tilt – unable to keep his inner demons from corrupting his optimal game. The deeper he sinks into the red, the less self control he has. He enters what I call a “death spiral” of bad decisions, more losses, and decreasing control – ending only when he has run through his entire bankroll or leaves the room.

Solution: Loss Limit

A loss limit is the setting of a predetermined amount of money that, once lost, is a trigger for you to leave the game, no matter how good or bad you believe the game to be. So, for example, if you are a $2/5 no limit player, you might set your loss limit as two complete buy-ins of $500. If you lose $1,000 you leave – no matter what.
Admittedly, this goes against the strategy that has you continue to play poker as long as you gauge the game to be good. But it acknowledges that when you have lost this amount of money you may not be good enough to beat the game.
Not everyone falls victim to a loss of self control when they have lost a considerable sum of money. A small percentage of us are experienced, even tempered, or skillful enough to be able to maintain our best game even when we are losing. For these players this antidote doesn’t make sense. Stay as long as the game is good, play your optimal game, and all will be well. Still, for the rest of you, setting a loss limit makes sense – to stem the losses before a lack of self control has you losing everything you have..

#2. Futility

This is a variation of steaming, but it has a unique flavor. Losing sometimes triggers a sense of futility. Once you lose a lot of money, you become more willing to shove in your remaining money even if you know it’s not likely to be profitable for you to do so. Here’s a real world example of what might happen.
You bring $1,000 to a $2/5 no limit game at your friendly neighborhood poker room. You optimistically buy in for the maximum of $500. You’re tight at first, and hit a long string of hands that you deem unplayable. Your stack sinks to $450 or so in the first 15 minutes as you literally fold everything that isn’t a blind. But you’re no rookie – so you’re not worried.
You finally get a playable hand – two black Queens in early position. You raise to $25 – perhaps a little too exuberantly because of your early drought. You get a caller on the button – and the big blind calls too. The flop is A,J,3. The small blind checks. You hesitate a bit as you wonder if either of your opponents has an Ace, and then you bet $75. Both opponents surprise you by calling. The turn is 9 of Spades. The board is now Aofhearts Jofhearts 3ofspades 9ofspades . The big blind bets $100. You wonder why he makes such a small bet. The growing pot, now about $400, tempts you. You think about whether he might be pushing a flush draw; you think it’s more likely he had a weak Ace and just made two pair. Or maybe he started with J9? You’re not sure. But for $100 you’ve got to see the bet. So you call as does the third player. The Qof hearts  hits on the river, making the board Aofhearts Jofhearts 3ofspades 9ofspades Qof hearts. The big blind checks. You have just hit trip Queens, but you’re worried about a flush or even a straight so you check. The third player bets $300. The big blind pauses a long time and then calls. You think you’re probably beaten – in fact maybe third best. Still, you look at your trip Queens and think about all the hands that they could beat. You realize that the third player may have just been betting his position, figuring to steal the pot with trash. The big blind may be calling with a hand as weak as two pair just to stop the steal. And you have two pair beaten. You’re have to kill yourself if you folded a winner when getting 4:1 pot odds on your call. So you call. You lose to a flush and Jacks up.
You don’t throw your cards or have a tantrum, but you’re very upset. You are pissed that you started out ahead but failed to win the pot on the river when you hit trips. You see the poor play of your opponents and are convinced you’re the best player at the table. Armed with this thought you buy in again for $500 – determined to make back what you’ve lost and then push on to at least doubling your bankroll for the day.
You win a few small pots with large raises that force everyone else out. And then you lose a couple of hands much like the first one – starting out ahead, playing correctly, correctly putting your opponents on hands, and then getting outdrawn on the river. Despite your skillful play your stack goes down to $200.
It’s now seven hours into the session. You’re tired, and angry, and at the same time a bit numb from being down. You realize that with only $200, it’s highly unlikely that you will finish the session even – and a near impossibility that you’ll end up reaching your initial goal of winning $1,000. You didn’t bring any more money – and you are very wary of borrowing money or using the high-vig credit card machines. You stick around because you figure there’s still a chance you can turn things around – convinced as you are that you’re at a great table. You’re not on tilt.
You’re dealt five or six unplayable hands and then get Aof diamonds and 9of clubs in the cutoff seat. There’s a raise in early position to $25 from a loose and wild player – and then another loose player, with a huge stack, pushes in $75. You figure that you’re just about ready to go home anyway – and you only have $200 – so you might as well get as much bang for the hand as possible – so you shove for the entire $200. Everyone folds but the three-better who calls you and then flips over his black Queens. You don’t improve, you lose the hand, your stack, and your bankroll for the day. You’re done. You leave, walk up to a credit card machine that charges 7% juice plus a $10 fee. You have the sense to shake your head and leave, disgusted with yourself and with poker.
Had you won early on you might have been fine. You would have continued to use your skills and may well have finished up $1,000 against what were probably players inferior to you. But when you got down to your final $200 you essentially gave up – flinging it in carelessly (had you used your good poker skills you would have realized that you were either a small underdog if the re-raiser was raising with a medium or small pair, a huge underdog if the re-raiser had a bigger Ace, or a medium underdog if the raiser had a big pair.)
Your sense of futility at being down to your last $200 prompted you to lose it thoughtlessly.

Solution: Leave with a short stack

If your stack is short, and you’re either unable or disinclined to buy back in for a full stack, leave.

#3. Desperation

For some players, losing money triggers an uncontrollable desire to get back to even for that session. There may be real world reasons for this. They may not be able to afford to lose money, or they may owe money they must repay. For whatever reason, when they are down a certain amount, their desire to play is controlled by their desperate need to win back what they’ve lost.
Typically, to do this they become more aggressive – taking more chances than they would be taking if they were playing their optimal game. In their desperate hunt for a stack restoring large pot, they’ll throw in their chips without the proper pot or implied odds.
At their worst, they’ll move up to a higher stakes poker game, figuring that it’s the only way they can make back quickly what they lost elsewhere. The results are sometimes positive. Sometimes, a $2/5 no limit player, down $1,500 for the session, can move up to $5/10 or $10/25 no limit game, play wildly, get lucky, and win back his losses. It does happen. More often than not, however, it is a sure route to the poor house – as skillful poker players eat his sad lunch.

Antidote: Leave and consider giving up gambling

Of all the risks to losing, this one should concern you the most, as it’s a sign of compulsive gambling. The initial antidote is much like those in the earlier two examples. If you are feeling, desperately, that you can’t lose, that you must at all costs win back what you’ve lost, then your best course of action is to leave the game – since you’re no longer playing thoughtfully. Similarly, if you find that you cannot control the urge to play poker, even when you know that losing more money will hurt you, then you might want to give up the game entirely and stay away from all forms of gambling.
In sum, losing at poker presents risks that linger beyond the initial hit to your bankroll. In general, if being down causes you to deviate from your best game, then you should leave the game before a small or mid-sized loss turns into a catastrophic one.

The Unluckiest Man to Ever Sit at a Poker table!

A bad beat jackpot is a prize paid when a sufficiently strong hand is shown down and loses to an even stronger hand by another player. 

Bad beat jackpots are usually progressive, often with a small rake being taken out of each pot to fund the jackpot in addition to the regular rake. When a jackpot is won, it is usually split among all players sitting at the table at the time of the bad beat. The losing hand gets the largest share followed by the winning hand, with all the other players dividing the remainder.
Specific rules, collections, payout percentages and amounts vary from one casino or card room to the next. Poker is still the most exciting game in the world.

Funniest outburst in poker ever! 26 MILLION WON!
