Poker is Hot
Poker has recently rocked the world, exploding with a surge of popularity in North America and around the world. Television coverage of the World Poker Tour, the World Series of Poker and others have brought Texas Hold'em into the mainstream. I was talking to my dad the other day and was surprised to hear that he looks forward to watching the Hold'em poker games on TV. The game as definitely caught on to a whole new audience. Millions of new players are joining online games or visiting land based casinos. Many of these players are using only the knowledge they have gained from watching the no-limit games on tv. Please remember that your strategy of play in a no-limit tournament should not be the same as a low limit game.
How to Play Texas Holdem
The game of Texas Holdem combines skill and luck unlike "pure luck" games like slots and roulette. You can enjoy the game with little or no skill. You can even win with luck alone, at least in the short run. Over the long run, the better players will do well while others won't do so well. Spend a little time to learning how to play well and where to play.
The first time I played
Texas Hold'em was at a Las Vegas casino. Even though
I had watched the game and asked a bunch of questions
I still had a hard time playing and learning at
same time. Texas Hold'em has quite its own language. Even though I had played regular poker
for 25 years I was overwhelmed with terms like, blinds, half blinds, buttons,
river, turn and kicker. All of sudden, kings were
known as cowboys. Needless to say, I made a bunch
of mistakes at the table. And no, drinking doesn't
help your game.
