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".

Metaphysical Poker and Life

Playing poker all my life as a marginally successful player, I awoke to the fact that all the poker knowledge and experience in the world would not help enough to play my best game. My skill level and knowledge of the game had reached a ceiling and to become a better player I needed to raise the whole ceiling. This was a life issue as well because it seemed obvious that to become a better player I needed to become a better and happier person.

Today's Word is... 'Middle'

Imagine you're sitting in the middle of the back seat of a VW Beetle on a long drive from Tulsa to Amarillo. You're wedged between two other passengers. Got the picture? Now, let me ask you: Are you feeling comfortable? Oh, you're right - it might depend on who the two people are. But, let's not go there. Usually, you'll probably agree that being cramped in the middle like this is no fun. Well, it's the same with poker on the last betting round. Being in the middle is no fun.

Global Gaming Expo: Everybody Wants A Piece of Poker's Action

The Global Gaming Expo, the annual international gambling industry trade show was held at the LV Convention Center recently. Over 700 leading gaming vendors, including more than 100 international companies, showcased their products and services.

The world of gaming gathered for three days to stroke the sexy new slots, peek at the titillating new table games and fondle all the responsive new technology. But to this observer it was clear; Lady Poker was the Madame of the House.

Wisconsin's Compacts- Bad Law And Politics

The Supreme Court of Wisconsin has thrown the future of Indian gaming and the fiscal health of the state into doubt.

And it was not entirely the Court's fault.

In a long and carefully drafted opinion, Justice David C. Prosser, writing for a narrow 4 to 3 majority, ruled that Gov. Jim Doyle had exceeded his authority in agreeing to extend and expand the state's casino compact with the Forest County Potawatomi Tribe. Although the decision is limited, on its face, to terms contained in this one compact, it impacts all tribal-state agreements in Wisconsin.

Winning Stud Play on the River: Not Too Tight!

You can learn some lessons too well. It happens to beginning Stud players all the time. They came to the casinos with the loosey-goosey style of the home game. They lost. They read some books, watched their opponents, and soon learned that if they were to win in a casino they had to play tight. So they did. They limited their Third Street play to Trips, high pairs, low pairs with a high kicker, 3-Flushes and 3- Straights. Gradually, and painfully, they learn to throw away the 9-K-A double suited, the 3-3-6, and even the 3- 9-9 that they played for profit in the passive easy home games.

Poker Table Ettiquette

Most poker room rules are often just common courtesy and good manners. However, with the recent popularity of games like Texas Hold 'em, many players haven't learned some common practices that help to keep the game smooth. Some of these courtesies are written rules and others are common practices. Here are a few.

Killer Poker: Pretense Defense

"The best offense," someone once said, "is a good pretense." In this column we're going to discuss defending your blinds, not based on what you hold, but what sort of pretense you can sell. Some blinds are easy to defend. If you happen to pick up a real hand in the blind, you'll play it straightforward and hope that the strength of your hand is enough to overcome your positional disadvantage. Some blinds are easy to surrender. If you've got crap, you fold and wait for better times.
