Entertainment Report

Don't know about you, but I love Latin music and I particularly like the music of Marc Anthony, who will be performing Sept. 5 at the Mohegan Sun Casino. I've only seen him once live, but I gotta tell ya, he puts on a great show. I also have to admit that several of his CDs, including his first salsa album, Otra Nota, get played a lot while I drive around town.

Small Stakes Tournaments: Playing Each Stage

Why do we do it? Why do we pay $100 of our hard earned money for a few hours of watching the blinds climb faster than Lance through the Alps only to end up putting our tournament on the line with hands like Q-J suited and pocket fours? Because it's the only game in town.

Any time you discuss poker strategy, you are forced to paint in some broad strokes. Please remember that every situation is different, and you have to respond appropriately.

In order to keep things simple, I will use what seems to be a typical structure for small buyin NLHE tournaments:

Today's Word Is... Value

If you want to get a casual poker player confused in a hurry, just talk about "value betting." There isn't even a universal definition of what it means, so you're free to make up your own. Here's mine: A value bet is a risky wager designed to extract every penny's worth of profit from opponents.

The United States of Poker: Connecticut

There are only two casinos in all of Connecticut, both on reservations, and out of those two, only one has live poker - the Foxwoods Resort Casino. The other Connecticut casino, the Mohegan Sun, closed its poker room in 2003. It remains to be seen if the poker explosion will entice the Mohegan Sun to give poker another try.

The Foxwoods, known as the biggest casino in the world, is located on the Mashantucket Pequot Reservation, one of the oldest, continually occupied Indian reservations in North America, according to foxwoods.com.

The Weak Lead: Strategy and Counter Strategy, PART 1

Have you ever played against an opponent who makes a minimum bet despite a large pot? There are different reasons that an opponent uses this strategy. For some players they do not understand the no limit betting structure. A savvy player uses the minimum bet when they are on a draw, when they have a medium strength hand, to gain information, to steal the pot against certain opponents, and when they have a very strong hand. By making a minimum bet they might prevent an opponent from making a larger bet when on a draw.

Oklahoma to Vegas and back to Oklahoma

Whatever happens in Vegas-Stays in Vegas. But here is a different line-What happened in Vegas-started in Oklahoma then it came to Las Vegas. And then the bottom line is: What happened in Vegas- Started in Oklahoma, Came to Vegas and now is returning back home to Oklahoma.

Player Profile: Wendeen Eolis

Wendeen Eolis was up early on a recent morning for business-related conference calls to Asia and Europe, all about deals requiring her expertise concerning the strategic use of lawyers to get big deals done.

She was working from her hotel room at one of the new Indian-owned California resorts, but modern telecommunications being what it is, some things can easily be done anywhere. In this case, Eolis was balancing the demands of two very different kinds of challenges, all of them involving very big deals.

Letter to a Loser

Dear Loser, I'm sorry to hear you've been running so badly. If I understand your situation, it's this:

You're getting spanked right now and there doesn't seem to be anything you can do to stop it. The last few weeks have been a perfect storm of bad beats, bad luck, and bad decisions, and it's combining to chew a hole in your bankroll, your confidence and your normally sunny disposition. And it's not like you don't know it's happening. To paraphrase Paul Kelly, "You see the knives out, you turn your back. You see the train, you stay right on that track."
