Poker Cop: Bust-out Joints

I'm a Card Thief. Tonight, in an underground card room called The All Inn, I cheated a flock of dead money ducks by slight-of-handing out a check-and fold [7d][2h], and switching in a flop-fitting [6d][4c], hitting the nut straight and leaving my opponents badly beaten. I had stood up to leave when Daffy Duck yelled, "Wait! I folded a pair of black fours! How could you show down the [4c]?"

"You know," says Donald, "I'm sure I folded an [Ad][6d]."

I take one step back. Huey, Dewey, and Louie eye me suspiciously. Daffy says, "Let's check the muck."

"Good idea!" says Donald.

Jackpot, Crackpot

Today I am going to present my selection for the all time worst play in the annuals of recorded card playing history. Before I go any further, I would just like to point out that I would do this player no justice if I merely awarded this player the year-end 2005 Bonehead- ineptitude-moronic-play-of-the-year trophy! No, he rightfully deserves better than that, say like a...gigantic sign posted in his front lawn, stating in part: "You ain't 'gon believe how badly this guy who lives here, played this poker hand at the neighborhood casino"

Robert C. Schenck America's First Ambassador of Poker

Although the passion for Poker is international, it is an American game. It developed here in the early 1800s and has been a part our national history and culture ever since.

The British were the first Europeans to embrace Poker. Today, the Brits are among the best. The man who introduced America's Game to the British and the world was Robert C. Schenck, of Ohio, in 1871.

One writer called it, "the most significant export from the New World since the potato."

Today's Word is... 'Proportional'

Televised poker has brought big changes. The two most conspicuous are (1) hold 'em is now the game of choice almost everywhere; and (2) poker tournaments are much more popular.

You've heard me talk quite a bit about poker tournaments - how they should be modified, why I don't play many, simple strategy for profit, and more. Let's go beyond that. Here's advice specific to your tournament chips and how you should use them to control your fate.

I think you'll be surprised. Let's listen to a strategy lecture I delivered long ago...

Itty Bitty Flush

LindaMae lay in wait for me on that chilly Thursday afternoon in November. When she saw me she left her table, steamed over to me and said, "You wrote that the chance of exactly two people having a Flush is 4.4%, is that right?" I said that that was correct in a ten-handed game when there were three trumps on the table and she had none. "Then when I have a Flush, the chance that anyone else has one has to be less than 4.4%, right?" she asked. Wrong, I told her. "What," she exploded, "how can that be?"

Omaha H/L: Straight Draws

Straight draws, in and of themselves are not profitable unless combined with a low draw. This was the lesson we learned last time. Can we improve upon the results by pairing one of our cards? Not just any card, let's pair the high card affording us the best opportunity for our pair to hold up. For this simulation I kept all the parameters the same as in part 1 and tried to keep both the player's cards and the flop similar. The results are presented below. So did the addition of a pair improve the net? The simply answer is yes.
