Plug Those Leaks!

Many cardsmiths win huge amounts of money on a consistent basis, but they have some bad habits. They may bet the sports to excess, like the girls a little to much, go drinking too often, get into dope, or visit the craps table too frequently. Like the little Dutch boy who used his finger to plug the leak in the dam. Poker players must plug their personal leaks, curb their bad habits, if they are to be successful at playing poker.

Swift Reprisal: A Joe and Hobby Fiction

"What are we doing tonight?" Hobby asked. We usually set aside Saturday nights for the ladies in our otherwise self-indulgent lives, but it so happened that both of them had other commitments.

"I'm always up for poker. How about you?"

"Suits me. Looking for some heavy action, Joe?"

How to Handle Losing

In poker, as in life, things don't stay on an even keel. You have good times and then you have bad times. The good times are much easier to handle, of course. It's the bad times that have a tendency to cost us more than they should if we don't know how to handle them correctly.

Max Pescatori Wins Second WSOP Circuit Title

The sixth event of the WSOP Circuit at Harrah's Las Vegas played out the final table this evening. The two players going heads-up were Michael "the Grinder" Mizrachi and Max "the Italian Pirate" Pescatori. The $2,000 + $80 buy-in No-limit Hold'em tournament began on Saturday with 68 players building a prize pool of $131,920. The Grinder came to the final table an overwhelming favorite with $102,050 in chips giving him an almost 4 to 1 lead over Max in the second play money spot with $26,725.

Player Profile: Yosh Nakano

Veteran Bicycle Casino host Yosh Nakano and his California partners think they have a great idea and they're bringing it to the Internet via a project known as Pokerblue.

One of the differentiating features at Pokerblue will be a whale or high limit room. The identity of players at the table will be known and there will be an "approval process" that Nakano is reluctant to talk about for the time being.

Stud 8 Myths: Part 2

Last time, we looked at two of the biggest myths that players learning stud 8 make - that any hand you'd play in stud you can play in stud 8, and that any pair is playable. As you read (or have learned by experience) doing that is a sure-fire way to lose money, because you are frequently just playing for half of the pot. Stud 8 is all about the scoop - and when you only go in one direction, you end up a long-term losing player.

Poker's Best Training

The first time that I watched poker being played for real was on the Internet. It seemed like a less intimidating way to learn, because there's not much embarrassment associated with being a rookie player.

Medication to Improve Your Poker Game?

Dear Poker Counselor,
I'm pretty sure that I'm dealing with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). I struggled through school with inattention, fidgeting, inability to stay focused, and disorganization. These same things that hurt me when I was a kid are now hurting me at the poker tables, either online or in live casinos. My home games are even worse, as there seems to be even more distractions to hamper my play. Now that I'm looking to raise my game to the next level, I'm considering talking to my doctor about getting Ritalin or other medications. What do you think?
-Steve Harris in Nevada
