Poker Cop: 'N' is for Needle

I come to in the back of an ambulance, tied down to a stretcher. A paramedic, his back turned, is filling a hypodermic needle. I ask, "Am I going to live?"

The Ugly Man, holding the needle, turns around and says, "No. You're going to die!" I struggle with my restraints. The Ugly Man, holding the needle, says, "You have to the count of three to give me your invitation to the House of Cards. One." He raises the needle.

"I can't give you. . . ." "Two." up over his head ". . . . what I don't have." "Three." and plunges it downwards.

Simple, Powerful Key to Poker Success

The latest lesson Mike has taught me is easy to apply to limit poker games. Here's the concept behind it. You can focus on a poker decision in two primary ways.

Conservative approach. Approach 1: Begin with the assumption that you should check or fold every hand and then gather evidence to the contrary. Only if the evidence is strong enough to outweigh the argument that you should check or fold do you take an aggressive action, by betting, calling, or raising.

Busted for Betting Online

Jeffrey Trauman has made history. As best I can tell, he is the first, and only, person who has actually been charged and convicted of online gambling. From the email Jeff sent me, I know that all he wanted was to be left alone.

Position Makes a Difference

Experienced poker players know that seat position at the table can make a big difference - whether you win or lose. Most important is how aggressive are the players to your left, those who bet after you.

Illuminated Crisis

It has become exceedingly difficult to concentrate on poker related issues when so many life-altering incidences invade my mental psyche. The unfortunate catastrophe in the gulf region is the ultimate reminder how fragile we human beings are. No matter how we as a country-or we as a people-prepare for these "Mother Nature" occurrences, we clearly are no match for so formidable an opponent.

Autumn -- the start of the poker season, when cards hit the air, flops fly and players try to "bundle up". Three big tournament thunderheads cover the Fall calendar.

Setting up the Bluff

Successful bluffing involves, usually, a combination of ingredients to be successful. Ideally, you'd want to have some value to your hand, some possibility that your hand might improve on future cards, timid and tight opponents, and good scare cards. But I'm not going to focus on any of those items in this column. Instead, I'm going to look at something less tangible - something you can't touch - but something that is ultimately very important and something you can actually do something about. I'm going to look at your image in the mind of your opponent.

How Can I Be Losing?

As we continue on our journey of discovery about poker and ourselves let's see what we're made of in this installment. Have you ever been running bad and asked yourself the question, "How can I be losing?". It's usually not just the losing that prompts this question because, as poker players, we know that you don't win in every single session.
