In my opinion texas hold em is the best poker game, i play 1/2 limit poker games on pacific poker... casino's arent the only places to play poker, there are underground poker houses everywere, but i would immagin that those would be for proffesionals though...

I play at Stars and I'm up 10k from $400 from 5 months ago. as long as you have enough of a bankroll for your limit you can handle the online swings.

I use to play now however i have to go outside the province to play (i work at a casino and hold a Ontario Gaming Licence) they don't let us play, anyhows, if you want to play a game where you can win, play Blackjack and play every hand by the book, statics show you have a 51% edge. Other then that the house wins, ofcourse there are a few times where you can get lucky but the house wins. How else can they afford to pay 4500 people plus all utilites, etc, etc. and thats just at Casino Windsor alone. P.S. PM me if you want to know how to cheat, i know all the little secrets, just if you get busted by the RCMP (they are at every casino in Canada, Floor Walking) don't blame me

I started learning blackjack basic startegy/book playing and then onto card counting systems....practiced alot and worked with a computer simulator. Just as I was about to put it to the test as Casino Naigara I hear that they have an auto shufle system or some S*&T like that which shuffles between each hand. Out the window goes any counting system, and in turn your chance to take a 2% edge on the house. Are there other "tricks" beyond this. I'm gonna put some effort into Poker now as I think it's mainly a skill game with a bit of luck here and there.

Hey man, what limit tables did you play at for this type of gain?? (fixed limit/NL) How long have you been playing, and did you ever drop below your initial $400?? I'm gonna get a couple books and continue learning and practicing before I take the plunge in a few months.

Yeah seriously I wanna know as well....

If you want a game of Black Jack with a "shoe" I know the casino in hull still have some tables with them....I find with the automatic shuffler between hands decreases your odds of winning.....


325isRED: You really have to know "People" to get into those kind a places like the KGB ....You go in there and start cleaning house and you don't know anyone...you're leaving in a Pine box...

The white "D" is the dealer button, and it moves arround to identify who is the dealer, and how the game will be dealt.

as for posts, instead of everyone having to put in an ante, just the two players clockwise to the dealer have to post either small blind(one person clockwise to dealer) or big blind(two people clockwise of dealer). blinds are different for each table, and if your in a tournement, they increase every set ammount of rounds.

Its a good system because you can actually go up to 8 rounds without placing any money, you wont be able to see the flop(first 3 cards dealt face up) but you will be able to see your hand.

I lost my first deoposit of $300 when I didn't know what I was doing. I read supersystem and a couple other books then deposited another $400. I started at $1/2 shorthanded and worked my way up to $5/10 ring everytime my bankroll had 250 BB . Just now I've been working on multi table tournies too and been doing pretty well. Stars has a $400,000 tourney every Sunday which you can usually qualify into for $30 or less. 10k is really nothing on there, there are a couple of 18 year old kids who have netted over 200K just playing from $4-500 deopsits.

This is a legit online place? So if you want you can cash out some of your dough and go buy some mods and stuff? USD funds as well???
