Two and a half additional points: 1) You do not mention what the buy-in is for those $2,500 in chips, but the style of play you cite indicates the players assign low value to those chips. So, to help change the "calling station" behavior, you should increase the buy-in or reduce the number of chips received. 2) Winning against such players is not about ...

Against these types of players you want to make a strong pair and bet big on all streets for value. If you get raised, just fold unless you have a stronger hand than medium two pair. You don't even need to continuation bet as a bluff against these players. Firing double or triple barrel bluffs is totally unnecessary and is just fancy play syndrome at this ...

I would consider playing a Tight Agrgressive (TAG) style of Play as the best optpion here. The general guideline of poker is to maximize your wins and minimize your losses.

Focus on playing hands that have polarized showdown value. High flush draws and pocket pairs (preflop) are good examples. Basically, against passive callers, the difficulty is that you don't gain information about what they have during the hand, so you have to play only hands where you can be sure you're either leading or losing with high certainty, and ...

I find the best way to bluff is to imagine what hands you could have. For example: Let's say UTG opens for 3BB. Everyone folds, and you call on the button with T9s. Flop comes 2-4-7 rainbow. The opponent bets the flop for 2/3 pot size. At this point I can fold, check or raise. If my opponent is tight and has mostly mid pocket pair type hands I'm just going ...

I have seen the behavior you talk about as well. However, if you pay close attention, it will usually throw the blind that was missed into the pot on the next round that you play a hand. There are situations where this is not true, however, such as when a third player just went out, the blind order sometimes changes in a way that someone will miss a ...

Some people on here mention state and federal laws and jurisdiction, however, everyone knows you can gable in Nevada and no feds are gonna come busting up the casino. I figured I would post here as the last post with good information was from a couple years ago. In Nevada, and possibly some parts of New Jersey, you can play online poker legally if you ...

There are 2 main cases to the "who must show the cards" rule: 1). The last-aggressor situation. This applies when there is some betting activity on the river. Let's take some examples: Let's say there are 3 players playing (Small-Blind, Big-Blind and Under-the-Gun) and they got to the river. case 1: SB checks, BB bets, UTG raises, SB folds, BB calls. In ...

As a dealer at a local bar for 40/60$ tournaments, I would consider a player throwing in his card protector as a motion of betting... without any verbal statement, it would count as a bet or a call if another player has bet that street already... This can also be classified as an illegal forward motion especially if the player is looking toward his opponent ...

In real poker tournaments, when the lowest denomination chip is no longer needed, they chip-up all they can and then have a chip "race" for the odd ones. Cards are dealt in such a way that each odd chip has a 1/N chance of becoming the next larger chip, where N is the ratio of the larger chip to the smaller. That way, the total of chips in play stays the ...

It is fair if you are the only one with odd chips at the table - Official Rules The lowest denomination of chip in play is removed from the table when it is no longer needed in the blind or ante structure. All lower-denomination chips that are of sufficient quantity for a new chip will be changed up directly. The method for removal of odd chips is to ...
