Evaluating Tells

By George “The Engineer” Epstein
 
A skilled poker player always seeks out tells from his opponents.  Tells are mannerisms that reveal information that can help him make better decisions – win more often and bigger pots.
 
The easiest tells are when the cards are first being dealt out.  I always teach my poker classes to especially observe the players to their left as they first look at their holecards.  Those are the ones who will be betting after you.

Seniors’ Scene - Aphorisms for Poker

By George “The Engineer” Epstein

An aphorism is a concise and usually witty or humorous statement of wisdom or opinion, such as “Lord, what fools these mortals be!”  (from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night's Dream”). In his “Essay on Criticism,” Alexander Pope wrote:  “To err is human, to forgive divine.”  Perhaps the most familiar aphorisms are: “Children should be seen and not heard,” and “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”  I am sure you have heard/read some of these.

The Barstow Poker Hall of Fame

By Max Shapiro

“Hey Maxey,” Big Denny bellowed on my latest visit to his dumpy card shack, “did ya hear about da Minnysoda Poker Hall of Fame?” 

“That’s ‘Minnesota,’” I corrected him.

“Oh, yeah, dat’s da name of da city.”

“Minnesota is a state,” I said wearily.

“Yeah, whatever. But did ya hear about dere Poker Hall a’ Fame?”

“Yes, I read about it. It was started by the Canterbury Park Racetrack and Card Casino to honor poker players from that state and those who helped the development of poker in Minnesota. So what about it?”

“Well,” the big guy explained, since Minnysoda is startin’ one, I figgered I could do da same an’ have a Barstow Poker Hall a’ Fame.”

Sad News

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our founder and publisher Stanley R. Sludikoff.  For over 30 years, Stanley helmed Poker Player Newspaper, which was, at its heart, a family-run publication.  The bi-monthly print edition was a staple in poker card rooms across the country.  PPN was brought into the digital age with the launch of the online site and gave voice to many talented writers and poker players over the years.  
Stanley celebrated his 80th birthday last year with his wife of 43 years Ann and their family.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all of them. 
The funeral will be held this Wednesday, March 16, 2016, at 2:00 PM at Mount Sinai, Hollywood Hills, 5950 Forrest Lawn Dr.

Get Ready for the World Series of Poker Main Event Final Table

Can't make it to Las Vegas this weekend to catch the final table of the WSOP Main Event?  Have no fear, ESPN has you covered.  The sports cable channel will be covering every hand as we go from the November Nine down to the 2015 ME Champ live-ish.  The final table will be shown with hole cards on a thirty minute delay starting this Sunday, November 8, at 5:30P/8:30E and continuing through Tuesday night.  Longtime poker commentators Lon McEachern and Norman Chad will be providing play-by-play first on the flagship station ESPN, and then starting at 8:00P/11:00E coverage will switch to the secondary station, ESPN2.
 
While the November Nine does not include one of the biggest names in poker, 11th place finisher Daniel Negreanu, the final table does not lack for interesting stories and great players and it should be entertaining to experienced players as well as those relatively new to the game.

Take Advantage of the Maniac

By George “The Engineer” Epstein  

There will often be a “maniac” at your table.  He loves to bet and raise – and reraise!  He does it almost every hand.  How can you best play against the maniac;  and. better yet, can you take advantage of his playing style?

Dealt a strong hand? RSPF is Best; Consider Your Betting Position

by George “The Engineer” Epstein
 
Playing hold’em, when dealt a strong hand, it is wise to Reduce the Size of the Playing Field (RSPF) before the flop.  Cutting the field down to two or three opponents is more likely to help you win the pot. 
 
In a previous column, I disagreed with another poker strategist’s preflop strategy for playing hands such as pocket Aces, Kings or Queens.  He stated:

Dealt a Strong Hand, When is it Best to RSPF?

by George “The Engineer” Epstein

 

Some years ago, I read a rather controversial column in a major poker magazine; it related to holding a strong hand preflop and then trimming down the number of opponents staying in the hand. The goal was to Reduce the Size of the Playing Field” (“RSPF”) in order to increase the probability of winning.
