Las Vegas, NV - When Jeff Cabanillas first strolled through the doors of the mammoth Rio poker tournament room three days ago, few people recognized him. Few appreciated his talent.

Ace-pectations

On a chilly Friday in mid-winter Fred ranted about pocket rockets. "I'll never raise with Aces again," he swore. "I should just muck 'em in the first place, because they always get cracked!"

On the button in a $2-4 Hold'Em game, Fred raised with Aa-Ad. Eight called. The Flop was [Jc]-[Js]-[9c]. After they all checked, Fred bet. Three called. The Turn card was the [3h]. Fred bet; the Big Blind raised; Fred called. The River was a blank; the Big Blind bet; Fred called. Fred mucked his Aces after the Big Blind tabled [Kh]-[Jh].

Shaquille-A Bedtime Story

Once upon a time, in the magic kingdom of "Lost Angels" - or L.A.- there lived a great team of basketball stars. As was the custom of this elite basketball powerhouse - each year right on schedule - advancing to the finals of the N.B.A. playoffs - or so it seemed. So charismatic and entertaining were these gladiators of the round ball that they would lure celebrities from all occupations to attend. So upscale and glitzy were the playoff atmosphere proceedings that ticket prices hikes were an acceptable part of the package.

When you make bad poker decisions, you lose money. That's obvious. But the concept is so vague in players' minds that it sometimes isn't enough to prompt them to improve. I've found a better way to motivate you to play better. And I'm going to share it with you today.

Sure, it's just a psychological trick. Whenever you condition yourself mentally to play well, that's really what's happening - you're tricking your mind. But you're tricking it in a good way. Today I want you to forget about losing money.

Luck in Poker

A question that has been bouncing around the poker community forever is how much of poker is luck versus skill. Depending on your thoughts on this issue the question of whether you believe poker to be a gambling game or skill game becomes clear. Clear in your own mind, that is, as the debate will rage on. I can't even recall how many times I've been involved in these discussions either with fellow devotees or in an attempt to explain to an "outsider that I'm not just a "gambler----not that there's anything wrong with that. Sorry, I just couldn't resist.
