Using an Opponent to Your Advantage

In "Harrington on Hold' em" there is an example of using an opponent to your advantage when you were going to raise with K-K and saw that the short stack to your left is reaching for his chips. It is a single table no limit hold em satellite (one winner). There was an early position player with a decent stack who limped in for 60 (blinds 30- 60). Rather than the kings raising to 200 as he was initially going to do, he just raised to 120. The short stack with 240 now moves all in essentially reraising you double your raise.

Poker Game Show Part 3

Hobby and I had been about to take off with a drug dealer in the back seat of the car -- we wanted to question him about T.V. Producer Bailey Mack's murder -- when his cohorts came to the rescue.

Suddenly I was under attack by a steroid freak shaped like the Michelin tire man.

Pulled from the car, I narrowly escaped having my head stomped by a size 14 boot. Before he could launch another kick, Hobby cold-cocked him with a karate chop. As we jumped back into the car I saw the other bozo laid out on the sidewalk. "What happened to him?" I asked.

'J' is for Jackal

TheFBI Agent says, "Paulo, Don Giuseppe's son, has started a Mob War over the death of his father. He believes the assassin who shotgunned Don Giuseppe and Gyp and is now after him. "You're the only one who's seen the killer." I'm shown a sketch of a Frankenstein's Monster look-alike. "Is this Gyp's killer?"

"No," I tell her, "not even close, "Who is he?"

"The Jackal." A killer-for-hire. His weapon is a shotgun. Have you ever heard of him?"

First, Get Clear on Your Goals

Dear Poker Counselor, I am a great poker player who consistently wins money. Over the past year I am probably up over $30,000 playing poker, but my problem is leaving the casino. After every winning session, instead of getting into my car, I find myself blowing my winnings at the craps table. I now have nothing to show for the long hours that I put into poker.
I know that I could make poker a living, if only I could get to my car! Sincerely,
Broke in Boston

Player Profile: 'Miami' John Cernuto

The poker pro known as "Miami" John Cernuto shows this little smile, explaining, yes, it's true, things couldn't have happened the way they did without Ronald Reagan growling and flexing his presidential muscles.

That's the way it was during the summer of '81.

Cernuto was living and working in the Miami, Fla., area, an air traffic controller, a traffic cop of the airways who figured he also played a decent game of poker.

Samuel Goldwyn Risk-Taker, Movie Maker, Poker Player

America's greatest independent film producer, Samuel Goldwyn, was an immigrant. Although semiilliterate and only able to speak coarse English, he made movies that spoke to the spirit and values of 20th Century America.

Schmuel Gelbfisz was the oldest of six children of a desperately poor Jewish family living in a Warsaw ghetto. When his father died at 43, the fifteen-year-old decided it was time to escape his prison of poverty.

"The only place I wanted to go was America", he recalled years later, because "I heard...about how people were free in America."
