Bump.

 

 

 

 

Just my 2 cents so please dont get offended.

 

 

This is my public service announcement for the day.

 

 

 

Do yourself a favor and stay away from the casino.

 

If your a good poker player then by all means have fun taking as much cash from all the donks out there but you will lose in the long run in the casino.

 

The odds arent in your favor in the casino as oppossed to poker which is a game of skill.

 

 

End of speech.

 

Good luck and have fun.

TheDon is correct.....too many idiots in poker.....plus the bodog system favors them.

 

 

 

 

I appreciate you supporting my post but I think you may have misinterpreted what I was getting at.

 

 

In a nutshell, if your an above average poker player (in the realm of a shark), you can do well on online poker sites (bodog,party poker, etc). But you have to be very patient and then when you have monster hand, move all your chips in and often some ape will call you.

 

When I mentioned the term, "casino", I was referring to games suck as blackjack etc (any game other than poker). You will get KILLED in the long run playing any online table game OTHER than poker. With that said, if your are not a good poker player, you will get KILLED playing that as well in the long run.

 

 

Also, if you do play online poker, choose a table where you won't "sweat" the action. By this I mean, if you decide to play a cash game (.50/$1.00 or $2/$4 blind structure) make sure you can afford to lose all your buy in and always buy in at the max buy in. This way if you get a monster hand (flop a hull house) you can push all your chips in and possibly double up. If you buy in for $20 at a $100 max buy in table, then you are already at a disadvantage.

 

And if your a tournament poker player (which I shy away from) then your only risking your buy in (obviously) but you may end up playing for 2 hours and then miss the $ (that why I shy away). But to each his own.

 

 

 

If this post didnt make any sense, let me know and I will try to explain it better.

Playing poker with play money is the most frustrating thing I've ever done. I would think it'd be a little better with real money.

 

 

 

 

Very true.

 

 

There are no consequences for stupid decisions when using play money. With that said, it is a good way for beginners to learn the basics.

And only the absolute basics. Anything beyond that and you're wasting your time.
