Low Limit Aggression

My guess is that 99 percent of today's poker players watch those poker tournaments on TV. The other 1 percent don't have TV's! We have tournaments for Hollywood actors, soap opera stars and race car drivers. We also have a ton of reruns of the World Series of Poker, the WPT, and new challenge matches keep popping up everywhere. Is it any wonder that the texture of our game is changing?

Playing Poker is Gambling

In a recent column by Fresh Young Face of Poker, Jennifer Matiran (Poker Player; November 29, 2004), the point was made that the outcome in a game of poker is never certain. Gambling, she explained, means to bet on an uncertain outcome. Her cautions struck a chord for me because I have been reprimanded by several people for teaching my now 9-y.o. granddaughter, Esther, to play poker - thereby encouraging her to gamble. I admit to that; but is it wrong for a youngster to learn to gamble?

To Raise or Not to Raise

Today's lesson is taken from one of Mike's previous lectures, dealing with "When not to raise." You need to rationally justify your decision when you're preparing to raise. It is necessary to know why you're taking this action. You should also make sure your reasons are valid when you're about to call, but it's especially important if you're raising. If you don't have a good reason for raising, don't take the risk.

Adjusting to online play

Poker has been greatly enhanced by the popularity of online poker. People who have never played poker before are now finding it comfortable to learn the game by playing online, where they don't have to be observed or feel intimidated by real people. New players don't have to experience that frightful first-time game of going face-to-face against opponents much more skillful than they are.

It Ain't Easy, PART 2

In the last issue of Poker Player I got on a tangent about smoking. If you missed it, don't misunderstand. I was the world's most addicted smoker, so I wasn't lambasting anyone. I was simply discussing the addiction and how very difficult it is to beat it. I speak from experience.

I believe that everyone has to do it (quit) his or her own way, find their own path so to speak. I have talked to people who have tried, shots, pills, gum, patches, hypnotism, and prayer. Nothing worked.

Mob Mentality

Sociologists uncovered an interesting phenomenon that occurs with Gypsies. This nomadic pack of people has an uncanny rate of successful recovery to relatively serious illnesses. Despite the fact that they do not have total access and understanding to all of the modern treatments and preventative measures, they still have a higher recovery rate to many illnesses and diseases than most "regular" folks. Researchers found that their immune systems were not superior. Instead, it seems that their success in physical health is linked to their emotional and mental health.

I have three fours; I hold one and two are on the board, plus a seven and a two, on the river comes a nine of clubs. Out of the blue, this guy bets big and there's a club flush draw on board. Something had to be up and I thought I should fold. As I was about to, the guy says "Oh no, I didn't see that there was a flush draw." I'm thinking he has something weaker than the flush, so I called. He shows his pocket nines, making his boat full. I have never been slapped across the face in my life but in that moment, I knew how it felt. What a manipulative punk!

Diamond Jim Brady: American Salesman, Celebrity, Gambler

"The Gilded Age" was the name Mark Twain gave to the 1880s, '90s and early 1900s. It described an America rich with resources and glittering with wealth and accomplishment. Yet, beneath this golden veneer, lay a society of poor, ill educated, hardworking people.

It was a time that gave rise to America's early industrialists. Men like financier J.P. Morgan, railroad mogul Cornelius Vanderbilt, steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, and oil baron John D. Rockefeller became the "Captains of Industry".
