Top Poker News and Strategy Stories

Recognizing hold ’em hands quicker

By Mike Caro
 
For more than a year, I’ve been giving hourly poker lessons by Skype. My students come with a wide variety of skills, from absolute beginners to established professionals.
 
So, naturally, I tailor the lessons to their needs. But, here’s something strange. I was puzzled that so many beginning hold ’em players had trouble identifying what hands were possible after seeing the board. It turned out that most weren’t able to see all of the basic threats that were possible.

Seniors’ Scene - Was it a Bad Beat?

By George “The Engineer” Epstein
 
Playing in a $4-$8 limit hold’em game at a local casino, it had not been a good night for me.  I was quite a bit behind;  and it was getting close to time for me to head home.  As the game had progressed, it had become more aggressive, with frequent raises and reraises before the flop.  A young man joined our table, two seats before me, and proceeded to raise almost every hand.  Probably a “maniac,” I concluded.   Fortunately, I had position over him for most of the hands dealt.  
 
The pots had grown substantially.  If I could win a couple of these big pots, I might yet go home a winner. . .

The Future of Poker at the New Hollywood Park Casino

By Robert Turner
Originally published in Gaming Today
 

The new Hollywood Park Casino, located just minutes from downtown Los Angeles and Los Angeles International Airport in Inglewood, California, provides a unique gaming experience that embraces the future but also honors its historic past.

Close to Beverly Hills, the beach areas and West Los Angeles, Hollywood Park Casino has always had its fair share of celebrity poker players, but the new casino is a glamorous addition to the Los Angeles poker scene where everyone is treated like a VIP.

Evaluating Tells

By George “The Engineer” Epstein
 
A skilled poker player always seeks out tells from his opponents.  Tells are mannerisms that reveal information that can help him make better decisions – win more often and bigger pots.
 
The easiest tells are when the cards are first being dealt out.  I always teach my poker classes to especially observe the players to their left as they first look at their holecards.  Those are the ones who will be betting after you.

Sad News

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our founder and publisher Stanley R. Sludikoff.  For over 30 years, Stanley helmed Poker Player Newspaper, which was, at its heart, a family-run publication.  The bi-monthly print edition was a staple in poker card rooms across the country.  PPN was brought into the digital age with the launch of the online site and gave voice to many talented writers and poker players over the years.  
Stanley celebrated his 80th birthday last year with his wife of 43 years Ann and their family.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all of them. 
The funeral will be held this Wednesday, March 16, 2016, at 2:00 PM at Mount Sinai, Hollywood Hills, 5950 Forrest Lawn Dr.

Get Ready for the World Series of Poker Main Event Final Table

Can't make it to Las Vegas this weekend to catch the final table of the WSOP Main Event?  Have no fear, ESPN has you covered.  The sports cable channel will be covering every hand as we go from the November Nine down to the 2015 ME Champ live-ish.  The final table will be shown with hole cards on a thirty minute delay starting this Sunday, November 8, at 5:30P/8:30E and continuing through Tuesday night.  Longtime poker commentators Lon McEachern and Norman Chad will be providing play-by-play first on the flagship station ESPN, and then starting at 8:00P/11:00E coverage will switch to the secondary station, ESPN2.
 
While the November Nine does not include one of the biggest names in poker, 11th place finisher Daniel Negreanu, the final table does not lack for interesting stories and great players and it should be entertaining to experienced players as well as those relatively new to the game.

Take Advantage of the Maniac

By George “The Engineer” Epstein  

There will often be a “maniac” at your table.  He loves to bet and raise – and reraise!  He does it almost every hand.  How can you best play against the maniac;  and. better yet, can you take advantage of his playing style?

Dealt a strong hand? RSPF is Best; Consider Your Betting Position

by George “The Engineer” Epstein
 
Playing hold’em, when dealt a strong hand, it is wise to Reduce the Size of the Playing Field (RSPF) before the flop.  Cutting the field down to two or three opponents is more likely to help you win the pot. 
 
In a previous column, I disagreed with another poker strategist’s preflop strategy for playing hands such as pocket Aces, Kings or Queens.  He stated:

Dealt a Strong Hand, When is it Best to RSPF?

by George “The Engineer” Epstein

 

Some years ago, I read a rather controversial column in a major poker magazine; it related to holding a strong hand preflop and then trimming down the number of opponents staying in the hand. The goal was to Reduce the Size of the Playing Field” (“RSPF”) in order to increase the probability of winning.

4-Betting tips and Techniques

By David "The Maven" Chicotsky

Sometimes we're put in a tough position after getting 3-bet pre-flop; and rather than calling or folding - we'll decide to 4-bet our opponent. The number one thing I like to emphasize to students when discussing 4-betting is to be precise.

We're essentially attempting to exploit our opponent through 4-betting in three predominant ways:
