Trust Your Opponent... Sometimes

Fred steamed out of my local poker room on that Thursday afternoon in early fall, muttering under his breath. The next day he had calmed down enough to tell his tale of woe. Holding Ad-Jd in middle position, Fred raised $4.

Entertainment Report: Las vegas Hilton

Big news in our town last week was the announcement that the Las Vegas Hilton has signed country music and television star, Reba McEntire, to a multi-week engagement in 2006. The superstar begins the first part of her engagement on Wednesday, May 3. This was a surprise announcement as many observers, when hearing that the Hilton was going to make a major announcement, thought it might be Bette Midler, who has been in town talking to Steve Wynn about doing a permanent gig at his Wynn Las Vegas.

When Social Engineering Is A Disaster

It took a hurricane destroying Mississippi's entire Gulf of Mexico gaming industry, but the Legislature finally voted to allow casinos to be build on solid land.

What were they thinking, to not only permit, but actually require casinos to float in a hurricanes zone? Hurricane Camille, in 1969, had flung ocean freighters over Highway 90.

The answer helps explain why the gaming industry is subjected everywhere to bizarre laws that are never imposed on any other business.

Gathering Information

Since we were down to the bubble, action had tightened up considerably. I told myself that I was playing for the win, not the guaranteed cash for making the final table. Well, my play did not follow that mindset. I took a chance to steal a pot from the button with 2-3 of hearts. The big blind reluctantly called. The flop came down with all paint, and two more hearts. My opposition checked, and my brain went into the toilet. I under bet the pot in a meek fashion, making it an easy call for the guy sitting across from me. I checked on the Turn when it was a black 4, another error.

Shorthanded Play in Stud

It was Thanksgiving night at Foxwoods. I played short-handed $20/40 stud for a few hours. My experiences there might prove instructive for you. The house cut the rake down to $2.00 maximum instead of the customary $4.00. Even so, I wasn't sure if I wanted to play. My game is built around extracting profit from bad players. Were the other three players who remained bad enough for me to make a profit?
