How to clear your poker bonus

Most online poker sites offer depositing players a variety of cash bonus schemes. Commonly, players will clear their bonus when a required number of ‘frequent player points’ or ‘poker points’ are earned through game play at the site. The bonus schemes fall into one of two categories. Incremental payout; where the bonus is paid in stages as points are earned toward the full amount. Final payout; where the entire bonus is paid upon gaining the full number of required points. Additional offers for depositing players may include exclusive freeroll tournaments, buy-in tournament tickets and merchandising gifts as enticements. Regular players...

Advanced Poker Strategy

Do you consider yourself to be an advanced poker player? If so, there is a good chance that you already have a poker strategy in place that you rely on when you play. But if you do not, you should really look into implementing one today. The main reason that a lot of players do not have a poker strategy is because they are not sure what it means. Sure, they know what the word “strategy” means, but when it comes to developing one that they can use during poker they are a bit lost. The good thing is that...

Improve Your Skills by Killing the Luck

I started playing Texas Hold’em almost a four and a half years ago now.  Like many new players my approach to the game back then was much different than my approach now.  If you are familiar with the “5 levels of thinking” of Texas Hold’em, I used to play with only the first one.  I certainly never considered things like my position at the table, the blinds, my stack, the pot odds, etc.  My plan was to look at my 2 pocket cards and try to guess what I could hit on the flop, the turn, and on the river....

Master Caribbean Stud Poker

When I am asked what my favorite poker variant on the planet is, I usually like to think a bit before giving an answer. This is because I try to expose myself to as many different options as possible, constantly seeking new information about each type of game. Poker is unique in that it so easily adapts itself to a wide range of variations. This is part of what makes the allure of the game so timeless. It is impossible for me to choose one particular poker variant and claim it is my absolute favorite. Instead, I would have to...

Short-Handed Play

It’s extremely common to play in a multi tabled or large single table tournament and then once the game becomes short-handed (meaning there are less players) there is always a player that instantly becomes a maniac. This person will raise, bet, re-raise, call all-in and often take complete control of the game. Although this player is often raising on poor cards such as a K5 off suit they often seem to ending up winning time and time again. The reason behind this is purely aggression, the key to winning a short handed game is being able to play a solid...

Dealing with Poker Downswings with Grace and Strategy

A downswing in poker is bad. Very bad. Soul crunching, teeth grindingly bad.

What Are Marginal Hands in Poker Anyway

If there’s one concept that seems to cause discussion at every turn, it has to be hand selection. Poker is all about hand selection. The hands we play can end up making us a lot of money, or pulling us into a losing streak best washed away with the liquor of your choice. We’re bourbon people, if you must know. Now then, what about this marginal hands thing? If you’re a new player that’s being picked on for playing too many marginal hands, you might wonder what the term really means.
