How Psychics Have Fun

Texas hold 'em poker is classed as the king of card games and is very easy to learn no matter what your skill level. It's a fun game to play online, but it is even better to play live. If your used to playing a round of poker at a friend's home game then it is important to take note of not only the rules of the game, but also the etiquette involved in a live casino.

The object of the game is to win the pot by forming the highest ranked five card poker hand or have all the other players surrender the pot to you by folding to your bet (You can do this by bluffing).

Casinos offer different varieties of poker these days, but the main two you will see is limit or no limit Texas hold 'em and pot limit Omaha. Unlike other casino games like roulette or blackjack, players of poker play against each other. The casino provides the dealers, the cards and other equipment to conduct these games for a small fee, which is usually charged in either a time charge every hour and a commission of the pot which is called 'Rake'.

About the Best $.25 I Ever Spent
Gambling doesn’t attract me at all. In fact, it mostly seems idiotic, since everyone knows ‘the house’ is going to win in the long run.
Furthermore, I’ve never liked casinos much. The first time I went into one, at the urging of a friend, I was already developing my psychic abilities, and all I could see or feel was everyone’s depression and desperation. I couldn’t find anyone who was having fun. And I kept wanting to leave my body, because it felt so unsafe in there. I went a couple more times with other friends, and felt the same awful energy. Someone once gave me a roll of dimes to convince me to try the slots. I actually won — $1.30 more than I’d played — which was kind of nice, but so what? Still didn’t seem like fun to me.
Fast forward a decade or two. I now have a friend, Kim, who is a massage therapist at a casino. She’s a terrific psychic, and we trade readings a lot. We also look psychically at world events, non-physical beings and other things together. A couple of weeks ago, a woman came in for a massage who made her living playing cards at casinos. She described her 6 figure income, as well as the royal treatment at the casinos. Kim thought about this, and said to me, “Well, if we’re good psychics, we should be able to figure out which slot machines are going to pay off, and then just play them.” And in the spirit of experimentation, I agreed to join her for an afternoon at a casino local to Sacramento while I’m up here on business. (For those of you wondering why no radio show, the answer is that I just couldn’t keep up all the driving while I have to be here — it’s about 3 hours each direction, which drains me for several days.)
There were a couple of weeks between the day I agreed to go to the casino and the day we actually went, so I had time to think about what I wanted to know and how I might go about it. I decided that my goal for a first visit was just to be able to stay in my body and feel safe in the casino. If I could do that, then I might set about figuring out how to connect to a slot machine to learn if it would pay off.
We went to the casino on Tuesday. At first, I was totally disoriented as I walked into the gigantic room, where it’s perpetual night (no windows), with rock oldies playing, all sorts of lights flashing at irregular intervals and bells and sirens going off periodically. I really understand now that part of their strategy is to disorient the patrons, to suck more money out of them. But we did what I always do — walk around to understand the layout of the place, which is casino in the middle (only about a third is “people games”, like blackjack, and the rest is a huge field of slot machines) and food, drink and bathrooms on the edges. We had to leave after about half hour to relax by a fountain in the shade and get back into our bodies. Kim had a cup of coffee.
Then we went our separate ways. I concentrated on learning about the machines: what you’d do to play one, how many ways there were to play it, how much each one costs. Turns out that there are basically two kinds of machines, one in which some symbols always line up and another where they aren’t even always on a “winning” line. Each type is can be “dressed up” in different types of themed symbols, like Indian or Chinese or Native American or Hawaiian. (each theme will appeal to different patrons as lucky, I guess, but they’re really the same machine.) There were more themes than I could count. And you can play each machine in a myriad of ways, with up to 20 different (straight and crooked) winning lines, at multiples of the minimum bet. After half an hour of this, Kim and I went back outside by the fountain again. I had to get back into my body again.
When I felt like I could be myself and still be in the casino, I began to consider how I could tell when a machine was about to pay off. First I tried looking for a color in the space over a machine, somewhere on the floor, hoping I could just go directly to the right machine. No luck (pun intended). So I resorted to walking up and down the banks of slot machines, seeing if I could feel anything in my aura. Nothing. Then I thought maybe I could ask each machine if it were about to pay off (for you hypnotherapists, or folks who have been in some of my classes, I was using the ideomotor finger response). When I found a machine that “said” it would pay off, I sat down and put my first dollar in the machine (at 5 cents a play, I figured I’d get a real chance to see if I were right). After about 60 cents, the machine did pay me — 35 cents. So I was right, but the question was wrong. The question needed to be, “Will you pay me MORE than I put in?” I further amended that to ask, “Will you pay me within 10 plays? 20 plays?” because I quickly discovered that playing slot machines is boring. Another trip outside.
Back in the casino, I began to ask each machine if it would pay me more than I put in, in fewer than 20 plays. It was really hard to find a machine that would say yes, and I tried dozens. In fact, I never found one. I did find one machine that said it would pay me within 10 plays, but not as much as I put in. As I stood staring at it, a skinny elderly woman, who was playing the machine two over from it, scooted across the chairs directly to it. Her feet never even touched the floor! She began to push “Play” over and over, like a demon. At first, I was annoyed, because now I wouldn’t get to find out if I were right. Then I realized I could see her totals, money in and money out, from where I was, so I’d get to find out for free. She was playing multiple nickels, and on her sixth play, she won — about fifty cents less than she’d bet in total!
It’s clear to me that these machines don’t pay often, and when they do, they don’t pay much. I’d certainly want to go back a number of times to verify that my intuitive methods really work. So even assuming I’m able to regularly suss out which machines will pay, how much time am I willing to spend prowling the floor to find the ones with the big payouts? Probably not much. Of course, Kim and I did have a really nice lunch, with very good food for the price, so that’s a plus for going back.
But I left feeling really good. Not only had I been able to stay in the casino with my wits about me, I’d possibly figured out how to use my abilities to beat the system. You might even say I had fun.

Lottery Vending Machines

While Internet gambling is technically not illegal in the United States (the Wire Act refers only to gambling over the telephone), 70% of the world wide offshore gambling business is attributed to Americans. This is mostly due to the fact that US law imposes restrictions on the income from online casinos. Gains must be declared, while not taking into account any losses made. With this legal restriction, many casinos have decided to pack up and move their business overseas.

Offshore Gambling sites are the solution to an international resistance to online gambling. Internet gambling is not legal in some countries, so one solution created by online casinos is to move their businesses overseas to a more sympathetic country. Since their business is conducted online, the physical location of their offices and facilities do not really matter. This is what is known as offshore gambling, and refers to the lack of jurisdiction over these casinos by any particular nation or state.

Many Internet casinos and poker rooms are thus evading US law (while still being able to service US clients) by setting up shop in Gibraltar, the Isle of Man, and other more liberal places. The costs involved in transferring to other countries are negated by the fact that the online gambling business is now worth approximately $2.4 billion, and is still growing in popularity.

Because of the lucrative nature of this business, most casinos continue to look for loopholes in the laws that countries implement to regulate online gambling. For instance, although the United States has technically banned advertising for online gambling on magazines, television, and the Internet, savvy advertisers have found a way around it. Instead of directly advertising the casino part of their websites, they advertise tutorials on how to play poker (for instance) which uses only play money. But a link to the actual casino would be there somewhere for the gambler to sniff out.

But gamblers at these casinos should of course be more wary. Precisely because these

are 'offshore' and thus beyond jurisdiction, the players are not as well-protected as they would be if they were playing in a land-based casino. Because of this, some organizations have been formed to act as watchdogs for these offshore casinos, protecting the players and enforcing some security.

Lottery Vending machines make it possible for the average person to become rich, maybe even a millionaire, anywhere and at any time. They just put a dollar, or maybe a few dollars, into the machine, get an instant scratch ticket, scratch, and hopefully win big. They are normally placed in high traffic areas like, for example, the front doors of supermarkets where the number of people that pass by it is maximized. These vending machines generate a lot of money for their respective lottery corporations.
Lotteries that have lottery vending machines tend to generate more revenue than lotteries that do not. The main reason is that it increases the number of places that consumers could purchase tickets. Whereas, without the machines, people would have to buy from a retailer during business hours, the machines provide for many different sales venues, sometimes 24 hours per day.
Lottery vending machines tend to be quite colorful too, making them hard not to notice. Not only do the machines tend to have highly attractive colors, the tickets lined up inside tend to be colorful too. People that pass these machines, thus, notice them because they tend to stand out.
Consider some sales numbers – According to a report, in 2006 combined sales from lottery ticket machines was more than $2.3 billion in the United States. Because of this, more and more worldwide lotteries are starting to use the machines to supplement retail sales.
So, the next time you pass one of these lottery vending machines, you’ll know why they are there. Perhaps, you’ll even try your luck and win some money!

Doing a Bankroll Test in Slot Machine Games

Casino employees are often vulnerable to a range of physical and emotional problems. Employees who work in casinos are expected to always treat customers with respect, smiles and dignity. Shelly Field, who counts "100 Best Careers in Casinos and Casino Hotels" among the 20 books she has written, said the 24-hour go-go atmosphere found in casinos piles stress on workers. "In the casino business you always have to be `on,' and that adds to stress. Having to smile and be customer-service oriented on a constant basis becomes stressful in some instances," said Field. The primary goal is to keep customers in the casino happy in spite of their attitude or behavior. Customers may often be intoxicated or angry over gambling losses. Employees are expected to tolerate rude and often insulting behavior. This can lead to stress, depression, hypertension, heart disease and anger. Since anger is a secondary emotion it is almost always preceded by frustration, stress or some other intense emotion.

Unrecognized and/or untreated workplace stress and anger can lead to an increase in sick day usage, accidents, interpersonal conflicts and poor morale. The resulting frustration experienced by the employee can trigger an angry outburst or employee burnout. According to an article published in CasinoDealers.net. Stress is extremely problematic among casino workers: 75% of casino workers identified stress as a significant cause of job dissatisfaction.50% of surveyed casino workers reported "a lot" to moderate stress.15% of medical claims among casino workers are reported to be stress related. Medical providers report that stress is a major contributor to most physical and mental health problems. Substance abuse, excessive eating and gambling are the principle occupational injuries of white collar and customer service workers. Stress indirectly costs employers $150 billion annually. Unfortunately, 25% of all surveyed managers believe that anger is an acceptable management strategy oblivious to the cost to the company as well as to employee morale. Stress is expensive emotionally, physically and financially for both employees and their employer.

Enlightened risk management and human resource consultants are aware of the business and legal exposure to organizations that ignore the need to address workplace stress, interpersonal conflicts, anger and person directed aggression. The average cost to an organization to defend itself against litigation charging workplace abuse, is $700,000. The introduction of anger management courses which include techniques for recognizing and managing stress, managing anger, improving communication and increasing empathy have been shown to effectively address workplace stress and interpersonal conflicts.

Research conducted at the University of South Florida, demonstrated that when an anger management program was introduced to students in one class, the entire school benefited. Similarly, a twelve month study conducted in one unit consisting of 16,000 employees in the U.S. Postal Service resulted in a savings of 1.7 million dollars. There was an increase in morale, increase in workplace performance, and reduction of sick day usage, a reduction in accidents and a dramatic decrease in workplace conflicts.

In addition to offering anger management to employees who exhibit problems managing stress, communicating effective and demonstrating emotional intelligence; anger management classes can be a cost saving intervention relative to preventing workplace conflict and improving employee morale.

A typical program can be implemented by providing brochures, or pamphlets explaining what an anger management class is and is not. Often, employees are reluctant to attend any program which may imply mental or emotional disturbance. Therefore, it is essential that the course be explained in simply language as a class designed to teach skills in managing stress, anger and improving communication and increasing empathy.

In order to address the stress and frustration often found among casino workers a good anger management program can provide the workers strategies to manage their stress and anger. In addition the essential components of a good anger management program should include skills to improve communication and increase empathy. This is not a program to deal with severe emotional problems and therefore employees should not experience any stigma associated with attending such a class. These courses are generally taught in small groups with approximately 20 employees with separate groups for management and line staff so that each can feel free to express themselves openly. Management staff often benefit from additional training on how to recognize signs of employee stress or depression in their work units.

Conclusion

Casino workers experience a high degree of workplace stress and anger based on the unique nature of their work environment. Like doctors, firemen and law enforcement officers, the stressful nature of the work is not likely to change. Instead, it is the employee who must be taught skills to manage his or her stress in ways that increase rather than decrease his job performance and team morale. The introduction of anger management courses are a cost saving intervention for business and industry.

When in the casino, slot machine games are mostly played by many individuals. This is because the slot machines are practically very easy to play with. A newbie in slot machines will learn all the mechanics in just a few games. On top of that, the fun and the entertainment that you will get from this game can be pleasurable.
To maximize the pleasure that you are going to experience when playing in slot machines, you would always want to win more. In order for you to increase the odds of your winning you need to know how to choose the best slot machine that gives the best payout. When you choose a machine to play with, choose the ones in the best locations – the ones most casino players called “hot slots”. These hot slots are often situated near the winning claims booth and in the food area. These types of machines are sometimes placed in locations in the casino where traffic is heavy.
In locating the hot slots, be mindful that these machines are not arranged adjacent to each other. In case you have noticed a machine like this, avoid the one next to it because it is most likely to a bad machine that gives bad payouts. This is one way to ensure high chances of winning.
Doing a bankroll test is the best way to identify if the machine is a hot slot or not. This should be done before playing slot machine games so that you can maximize you profit. The goal of this test is to know if the machine is high paying or not. Basically, you will have to start of with whatever bankroll you have.
During your bankroll test, if you have made about 50% profit from your initial bankroll, it is advisable that you leave and stop playing with that machine. Chances are, that machine will make you lose more often as you play along. 50% win from your bankroll is a big prize and surely the machine will not give you the same win again. That is why it is better to leave that slot machine.
If you win in your initial bankroll with a profit of less than 50%, cash out and play again because this machine is most likely to be a hot slot. Machines like this will surely give you another win in your future spins. Also, when you lose more than 20% of your number of spins, do not think twice and leave that machine at once. That slot is a bad machine to play with and can lure you to more losses in during your spins.
Whether you play for fun or for money, it is always good to do a bankroll test on the slot machine. This will enable you to find out which machine is a hot slot or not and which ones are good to play with.
However, whatever your purpose in playing slot machine is, it is always good to set limits on how much you are willing to spend to win or lose in gambling. It is always good to play in amounts which you can bear to win and lose. The best way to be a responsible gambler and play slot machine games in moderation.

Roulette In Detail – Odds And Percentages

If you want to learn how to win a slot machine, then read this. You will discover tips about the slot machine random number generator which will help you have more success in slots.

One of the latest craze in the game field these days is slot machines. The game can be either played online or offline (or traditional land based). Playing the game is quite entertaining and fun especially that it offers chances of gaining more money. Now, both young and old folks enjoy playing the game.

Since many people are now playing slots, you need to have an edge over the others. It is empirical that you should be geared with tips on how to win at slots. Even in playing online, same modes and rules as that of the traditional land based slot games govern the game. Whether you play in online or offline casinos, here are the things you need to know:

First and foremost, like an Olympic player, you should be well prepared and ready before you play. In playing with slot machines, you need money. Thus, make sure that you have enough money to play. Vouchers are not honored in casinos, only cash. Even if you have the cash, you may end up having debts if you do not know how to manage your money. So, allocate a certain amount for your game on that day. Strictly stick to your budget. If you have consumed all set amount, then you stop, stand and say goodbye. Come back again next time rather than spending all that you have earned from your job.

Another tip is to have a time alarm. Set a time frame for you to play. If you reached the designated time and your watch alarms, then stop playing and go home. There are other more important things to accomplish than just playing. Besides, slots are made for recreation and not for production.

If you have won at a certain slot machine, abandon that machine. There is no lucky slot machine. Do not be greedy and think of playing with the same machine after your win. The slot will surely make you lose after that. Slots are regulated by microprocessors or generators which set combinations randomly.

These change the sets for a thousand times in every second. Thus, if you win now, it does not mean that you can win again with that machine in a consecutive, immediate play. Another thing, when you win, do not use the money that you have won to play. Stick to your set budget. For this, it is better that you request that your prize be given in check and not in cash. Casinos require cash only in playing. Thus, if you have your prize in check, at least you will not be tempted to use it to play.

For better chances of winning, play with slots that offer very high jackpots, high bonuses, and more spins. Also, check the payout and pay table. Play with the slot machine that have 95 percent and above payback. If there are newly opened casinos in your locality, try it. They have promotions for sure and they offer higher bonuses and jackpots plus extra prizes.

I’ve already gone over the basics of roulette in a previous article, but in this one I’m going to go into a lot more depth as to the exact chances and percentages of winning with roulette.
When thinking in terms of a roulette wheel and the chances of winning, most people only calculate their percentage of winning without taking the zero (or zeros as is the case with American roulette) into account. Although it might appear as only a slight factor, it does make a heck of a difference in the long run, which is what casinos rely on to make their money.
Let’s take for example if you were to place a bet on red, which would cover half of all the standard numbers on the board. If we don’t consider the zero, your odds would be 50% of either winning or losing. The law of averages states that you should win 1 out of every 2 spins, or 50 out of every hundred.
But when we do take the zero into account, the odds start to change quite a lot more.
To calculate the casino’s average from the zero, we take 100 (which represents 100%) and divide it by 37 (the number of slots on the roulette wheel including the zero). This gives us a figure of 2.7, which means that the chance of the ball lancing on a zero (or any other single number for that matter) is 2.7%.
This doesn’t sound like much now, but in the long run it adds up in the casino’s favour and this is what we’ll look at next.
So we’ll take our bet on red again and scrutinize that again. But this time instead of having 50% odds of winning, we must take into account the 2.7% edge the casino has with the zero slot. We do this by subtracting the 2.7% from 100% and we are left with 97.3%. Now that we have the real chance of the ball landing on any of the coloured spaces, we can divide that by two to give us the real odds of the ball landing on a red slot, which gives us a figure of 48.65%.
So as before you had a 50% chance of winning or losing, you now only have a 48.65% chance of winning and a 51.35% chance of losing.
To show you what this means in the long run, let’s say that a person bets 10,000 consecutive times on a roulette wheel with a $1 bet each time on red, they will only win 4,865 of thise times, and the casino will take their money 5,135 times, meaning that no matter where they bet, the casino will always some out on top. It always has the advantage, which is called the casino’s ‘house edge’.
I have just explained this with a simple red-or-black bet, but the odds are in the casino’s favour no matter which way you look at it. This is the inherent fact that makes casinos money machines, wired only to take the money from the people and not to give it away.
Sure it’s possible to have a lucky streak, but normally that’s exactly what it is; luck. There are very few ways out there that don’t involve cheating to give you an edge over the casino and when you do find one, they’re generally very guarded secrets.

Progressive Jackpot Slot Machines – Chasing the Dream

I was really overjoyed to discover a few months ago that you can actually play live roulette online. I love the game and have played in Casinos all over the world from New York to Monte Carlo and yes I do know its not the best odds to gamble on but for me it's by far the most enjoyable. Actually to my circle of rather dodgy friends I am probably regarded as a font of knowledge of one thing and one thing only and that is online roulette and casinos. In my opinion there's simply no better game and if you can dress up smartly , go to a glamorous casino with a few hundred bucks to throw around there's no better feeling, and yes pretend your James Bond for a few hours with a martini. In fact generally this is the problem I have with online casinos, a complete lack of atmosphere yes they are often very well done and there are some fabulous variations - I quite like the 3 wheel variants you can find in many casinos, but the problem is that you still feel like you're playing a computer game. Although I'm sure none of the online casinos I play roulette in cheat you're still at the mercy of a computer algorithm at the end of it. When you put your stack on odd and the ball lands on even you'll be cursing the computer and not lady luck. This is why I was so overjoyed to find out that you could play roulette online and completely live. Anyway before I tell you about that I want to make sure that anyone who tries gambling in an online casino for the first time avoids these mistakes.

There are two main types of roulette wheel, the French or European Wheel and the American wheel. The number distribution on them is slightly different but the important point is that the American Wheel has an extra zero. This makes a huge difference to the house edge, the advantage the house has over you, always look for a single zero and never ever touch a table on the internet that has two zeros.

Whatever your game, most online casinos have free games to try out the software. It's always worth having a quick go on these to check the rules and make sure you understand everything. But if you find yourself winning very easily, I urge you to find another casino online, if they can manipulate the payout levels of the free game to entice you in I simply woudn't trust them.

Please don't do this, roulette is a fun game but with any form of gambling you need your wits about you. The online roulette game I'll show you shortly will demonstrate the effect of alcohol on your average punter. Seriously though don't play drunk you can get reckless and end up losing a bundle and betting more than you can afford. Play roulette make some money walk away then get the beer in!

So OK I promised to tell you about this casino where you can play online live roulette. It's called Dublinbet and you play at a real casino, in real time via a videofeed from a Casino in Fitzwilliam Street in Dublin. I've put some stuff about it in the link below but it's the most fun I've had in ages the free game is even fun as you can watch all the other players and what they're doing.

The jackpot pay outs on video slot machines are one of the things that make each slot different from its cousin. Some slot machine games offer relatively low jackpot prizes, but make up for that with lots of smaller prizes in free spins or bonus games. Other slots go slightly the other way – you can spend longer without getting too large a prize – and then bang! Out comes the big payout.
The biggest payouts you can get on video slots are on the progressive jackpots. These slots take a small amount from each spin to add to the jackpot. When they are networked over several machines (live) or across a group of casinos (online) then there really can be life changing sums won in a single spin. One player in August this year won €943,000 on a slot machine spin at the Maria Casino, on the game Arabian Knights. As we said – life changing sums of money.
Video slots, or any form of slots style game, will tell you how the payouts work. You need to click the button with “pay table” or something similar to check out the how things work. There are plenty of slots to play out there, so if you want to shoot for huge sums on slots, make sure you look carefully – and change your slot if needs be.
Jackpots are not the only way to win big on slots though – bonus games and free spins can all add up to serious prizes. But if you really want to gamble for that big payout, you simply have to play progressive jackpot slots.

Illegal Online Gambling Community Feels Heavy Hand of Authorities

Oh, the fun of a casino! Not only can you play the slots, shoot craps and play twenty one, most casinos offer special dining and meeting facilities. Some even offer spas and special entertainment on stage. On top of all of that, you can enjoy very nice rooms for what time you do need to sleep while having fun at the casino.

When I say very nice, I really mean very, very nice. The best is a suite with a huge bathroom, a dining area, large TVs, a comfy sofa and a big, fluffy, king sized bed and a super view to wake up to.

When not if, you get hungry, check out the dining choices available to you in the casino. Most casinos have several choices, such as steakhouses, being able to watch your favorite game while enjoying a meal or an extensive array of delicious food on an endless buffet. The buffets will offer all you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, so there is always food to be found any time of day or night.

After dinner, why not catch a show on stage or enjoy check out the lounge for food and music. I'll drop just a few names to be on the lookout for. How about George Jones, Jo Dee Messina and Deja Vu, just to name a few. I even like it when they offer Karaoke night, you get to see some fun talent, and some cool beverages and a chance to improve your income.

What better way to enjoy a business meeting, than to have your meeting in a casino ballroom. Once business is through, draw up a chair in front of your favorite slot machine and have some relaxing fun. When looking for a casino in Indiana, look at the

, you will enjoy every inch of property and every moment of time.

It is well-known that online gambling is illegal and yet, many who participate claim that the laws are vague and therefore non-existent. Well, they were not enforced much until just recently, now those so-called non-existent laws, rules and regulations are being enforced as some 28,000 online gamblers had their online gambling bank accounts seized, and it’s not as if any of them really believed that this was going to be allowed forever. Now many are saying that they didn’t know, although, that’s going to be a hard one for the courts to swallow.
Some $34 Million Dollars were seized on this first go around with accounts in SF, LA, and Arizona being culled. Gambling is a huge business and online gambling is a huge business. Some claim that it is the casinos that want to stop the online gambling competition to their fixed locations, yet at the same time want to get permission to set up Internet sites themselves, which may someday be allowed. There have been attempts in Congress to push through such legislation, but it hasn’t happened yet.
Those who have these bank accounts are able to cash out and have a check sent to them when they do, unfortunately, those who went through the Allied Systems Incorporated in Arizona will find their checks are no good, if they have not yet cashed them, as the bank’s accounts were seized. It really was only a matter of time before something like this happened, as the writing had been on the walls for a couple of years now. But all that fun and thinking that no one would get caught all came to an end now. Please consider all this.

The Best 10 Las Vegas Poker Casinos

Gambling psychology for most people conjures up images of stony faced poker players and their habits and actions (tells) that suggest the value of the cards they are holding.

I contend that there is much more to gambling psychology. When we look at successful gamblers, they all have a sound money management strategy, a sound game strategy, a high level of game skills, distinctive presentation and when appropriate, the ability to psyche their opponents.

You may contend that that some of these aspects of gambling do not involve psychology. I disagree.

The sound money management strategy allows the successful gambler to recover from a number of consecutive losing gambling sessions. Especially in poker, opponents notice these things and the ability to bounce back has a subtle psychological effect on opponents. This also allows you to approach the next session in a better frame of mind than what you would otherwise be in because you know that if you should loose again, you still have adequate reserves to try again multiple times.

Without a sound game strategy you will be taken to the cleaners regardless of the game you play or where you play it. A sound strategy simply requires you to play the game to take advantage of all the favorable bets and to avoid those bets where the house has an unreasonable advantage.

This allows you to play with confidence because once your strategy has been tested and proven, you know that when you win, your winnings will be reasonable to quite good and on those occasions when you loose, your losses will be relatively modest.

Your game skills give you the confidence to adhere to your strategies when under pressure so that you maximize your winnings and minimize your losses. If your game stresses you unduly, either find a game with lower limits or a different game that you find less stressful. If that is not possible, then it is time to find another past time.

Your distinctive presentation sends a message to your opponents. That message is dependent on where and with whom you play. Many years ago, I worked as a ringer (cowboy) and long wearing western shirts, jeans and polished riding boots have been both my preferred work and casual wear ever since. In the city, that gives me the image of a hay seed (hillbilly). At the poker tables, that's great because most of those who do not know me personally will tend to assess me as an inexperienced and poor player.

To me these are the unnoticed aspects of gambling psychology that all combine to build your personal confidence and allow you to exude confidence during your gambling session.

Virtually everyone has heard about poker "tells" even if they do not really know what they are. Tells are the subtle signs that others pick up on that give them a good idea as to the strength of our poker hand. Hiding these tells from your opponents, requires a great deal of acting skills and practice especially when you suddenly find yourself sitting on a good full house or a royal flush.

I recall playing against this stony faced guy who hardly moved or spoke for hours when suddenly the artery on the side of his neck started jumping like he had just run a marathon. He obviously had a hand that he found very exciting. Whilst he could control his voluntary actions, he could not control his involuntary actions. All those who could see that side of his neck folded in turn. If he had come dressed as 'dandy' complete with a cravat, no one may have noticed his obvious excitement and his pot would have been much bigger.

This incident vividly illustrates the visible aspects of gambling psychology.

Lastly, I thought I should do some research to see what the experts have to say about gambling psychology. After a few hours, of reading those papers, the overwhelming thrust was that we were all exhibiting the early signs of abnormal behavioral patterns and if caught early, the problem could respond to treatment. Unfortunately, there are some in our midst where gambling has become a problem.

I make a point of never gambling when cash is short because it has been my sad experience that whenever I have gambled in those situations, I have almost always lost and such losses are doubly painful. I have always won most whenever I could well and truly have afforded the loss. Being cashed up removes the stress and reduces the mistakes one makes when playing overly cautiously.

To the intelligent gamblers in our midst who have sound strategies in place and who never bet more than they can afford to loose, I say work on the psychological aspects of your game to improbe your edge and Good Luck at the Tables!

A review of the top 10 casinos and hotels in Las Vegas weighted heavily on their poker room quality. A good read for any potential Las Vegas tourist who wants a quick taste of The Strip before sitting down at the tables.
The Bellagio is the most played casino in Las Vegas and is the choice casino for pros such as Jennifer Harman, Daniel Negreanu, & Chip Reese. The Bellagio, other than being an AAA 5-diamond hotel and casino, has a wide range of games, a great mix of people and an even greater atmosphere. The Bellagio is known for its high stakes with limit hold’em starting at $4/8. Away from the poker tables and you have some great attractions such as the wonderful and famous musical fountains and botanical gardens.
Free drinks and automatic shufflers? What more could you want! Caesars Palace offers a wide range of poker variations from limit holdem to omaha hi/lo. The luxury casino and hotel offers attractions such as an exotic car show room, two free and fantastic fountain shows, a nightclub and a shuttle to and from the hotel. The casino has been featured in over a dozen films and is to appear in the new release, “Iron Man”.
The brand spanking new casino in Las Vegas is sure to attract all sorts of poker players to its luxury suite. Oddly enough, The Wynn is the first casino to hold a luxury car dealership on the 215 acres of space that it covers. The games at The Wynn are similar to that played at The Ballagio, with highly skilled dealers and automatic card shufflers. Anything goes here, if it’s in demand then it will be played; it’s not uncommon to come across a 6 man $20/$40 Chinese poker game!
The wide variety of games and limits at The Mirage is what appeals to most. This is one of the only casinos where you will see less popular variations of poker, such as Omaha, being played at high stakes. The resort has a great exotic theme to it, with a huge Atrium at the entrance to the casino containing palm trees and water features to mention a few. There is also an artificial volcano that erupts during the evening which rivals the spectacular views at The Bellagio fountains.
The Venetian boasts the largest poker resort in all of America and even contains its own shopping mall. The Venetian offers over 122 casino games and a sports lounge. At The Venetian you won’t have to leave the resort, there are 17 restaurants and attractions that would keep you more than busy while you’re not at the tables.
The MGM Grand holds one of the largest poker rooms in Las Vegas and is one of the places seen to play a “kill blind”, similar to a “straddle” in no limit hold’em. If you are looking to play poker to make a killing while on holiday in Las Vegas then this is the poker room for you; as the poker room is situated near the entrance and so fish are constantly passing by. There are plenty of exciting attractions at The Grand including a glass walled lion habitat which has several viewings a day!
Binions is renowned as being the birth place of the World Series of Poker. The poker room contains over 70 poker tables with a featured table to use as the final table for their daily tournaments. Binions casino and hotel is marked with years of history after opening in 1951. Binions is also referred to as “The Horseshoe” which was the brand name used for many other casino properties.
This is the home to the modern day World Series of Poker, which is held in the Rio’s convention room rather than the poker room. Some say the resort is better known for its delicious 5 themed buffet meal than it is for poker; however the poker room is certainly more than adequate for all types of poker player.
Situated far from the main strip in Las Vegas, The Orleans is great for those who want to play lower limit variations of poker such as Omaha. They even have tournaments for any poker players bankroll including a daily $40 Omaha Hi/Lo game. The Orleans is not the destination for European and Asian tourists but more for the Las Vegas locals and long term residents making the atmosphere far more low key.
The Palms has had its name publicized recently after being home for the popular show, Celebrity Poker Showdown. The poker room is spread over 2 separate rooms with just 10 tables and dwindles in comparison with some of the other casinos in Las Vegas. One room is dedicated to limit and the other to no limit making the variations of poker very limited. The Palms redeems some of its poker credibility with a progressive jackpot for hands such as a straight flush or four of a kind.
