Poker is a VERY mathematical game.

The Good News: The math is pretty simple and if you can do 5th grade math you will be able to compute the odd's well enough to win.

Fact 1: There are 52 cards in the deck.

Fact 2: There are 4 suits in the deck, 13 cards in each suit. Unlike bridge, suits do not count. In other words all four aces are of equal value. Given the above facts you can begin to calculate a little about odds and to begin to understand a little about probability.

1. What is the probability of randomly drawing the Ace of spades?

Entertainment Report: Dionne Warwick

There are not many performers who can remain at the peak of their game over the span of more than 40 years, but that's just what Dionne Warwick, who appears March 30 at Harrahs Rincon, has done. Since recording her first single in 1962, Warwick has always enjoyed a huge audience, although it's a little difficult to define her style. In some ways, it is easier to define her by what she isn't, rather than what she is. Although she grew up singing in church, she is not a gospel singer. And although Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan are clear influences, she is not a jazz singer.

Who Owns Tokens Left In Slot Machine Trays?

Stella Romanski found a nickel token in a slot machine tray and won a jackpot, thanks to a runaway jury and judges who think casinos have too much money.

Stella, 72, had paid $9.00 for bus rides and a lunch buffet at Detroit's MotorCity casino. After playing nickel slots with no luck, Stella apparently decided to do a little "slot-walking," looking in the trays for spare change. She found one nickel token.

What and Who Wins a Tight Game of Omaha H/L

In my last article we compared two different loose tables to see what kind of player would dominate and what hands would win. Unquestionably the tighter players outperform the looser players. Before you continue reading, jot down how many hands per hundred dealt, you play. If that number is too high for you to work with, count the number of hands you play in a single round with ten seated players at the table. If all else fails just jot down how many hands you play per hour. If the dealer is good you may get 20 to 25 hands per hour.

Monkey in the Middle

Most of us have heard the expression Monkey in the Middle or have played the game as children. How I relate this phrase to poker is holding a medium strength hand where you must realize that you are either way ahead or possibly buried by your opponent's holding. The trick, of course, is figuring out which of these two possibilities is reality. The way to help determine where you stand is to analyze the betting coupled with the board cards and knowledge of your opponent's tendencies Admittedly, this is many times easier said than done. It is certainly not an exact science.

The Good Humor Woman

Sitting at the bar, Bill spied me leaving the poker room and waved for me to join him. An attractive blonde still in her twenties, the bartender fixed me with a warm smile as she served me a small draft beer. Watching her bustle about the busy bar, Bill mused that her sole experience at Hold'Em had been unsuccessful. Interested, I asked for the details.

Viva La Difference

I hear a lot of "poker babble" at the tables. Some players talk about tells and bluffs like they are the same thing. And then it may sound like everything is a trap. You will here that word mentioned like it's a bluff. Not all tells are bluffs and not all bluffs are traps. So, let's do some defining to see how to distinguish tells from bluffs from traps.

Today's word is... 'Tipping'

Sometimes in poker, things that seem unimportant make a shocking difference to your bankroll. Tipping the dealer is an example. Most of us tip routinely and appropriately. And I'm in favor of that, as you'll soon discover.

But one thing that's seldom discussed is that tipping changes the value of poker hands and often dictates which ones we can profitably play.

I'd feel honored if you listened closely to this obscure lecture I delivered online years ago.

The odd truth about tipping
