technique Casino poker game
When playing casino poker chips are used. They are not coins or tokens. Players are dealt different colored chips by the dealer and place their bets. After the dealing is completed, the players are allowed to exchange their chips (which may be up to the number of chips on the table) for cash with the attendant at the casino poker table. The amount exchanged is the amount of the small bet or ante.
Bets are not placed in a logical progression. The first person to play may "call" (pick up); the second player may "raise" (pay an additional amount of chips to stay in the game); and the third player may "fold" (lose all their chips).
The dealer keeps track of all the players' chips. If a player loses all of their chips, he is out of the game. The dealer places a marker on the top of the chip stack of the losing player to indicate this fact. The dealer places a fifth player card in the middle of the table to pay the "house" (the casino) a bonus for the players' participation. Casino poker is played no matter where people gather, and the rules are the same no matter where the game is played.
Casino poker is often played for real money. People play Golden Casino Poker in Las Vegas. Others play Super Mega Poker in Tunica, Gulf Coast Poker in Atlantic City, and California Casino Poker in Redding. There are Internet poker sites where players can play for points rather than money. There are specialty "poker" magazines for the serious poker player. The game of casino poker is big and the stakes are high. This article is concerned primarily with the rules of casino poker. The strategy of casino poker is the subject of another article.
There are typical mistakes that players make. Some never study the odds; they assume that they know how to play the game and stand no risk of losing. Harrah's requires each new player to read well and know the importance of the odds.
Roulette is a game of chance but there is a method of increasing the odds of winning. The best method is to understand the house edge.Basic roulette counting methods provide a rough idea of the percentages that the ball will land on each number. Those methods are: Red or Black, Odd or Even, 1 to 18 or 19 to 36. Then there is the High/Low system. The numbers are either red or black and the High/Low system is either a 1.00 or 19.00 bet. But there is a "split bet" that puts the odds in your favor. You can bet high or low, odd or even, and use the High/Low method or the 1 to 18 method.
Pai Gow is another game of chance. The house edge here is 10.85%. Players must predict the total number of "look" cards there will be. There are six cards, the Ace, the King, the Queen, the Jack, and the Ten. The values of these cards are the same as in regular poker. The Ace is either a 1 or an ace and the King is either a 1 or an ace. The cards are ranked according to the number of diamonds over each card. The number 6 is the highest number; the number 13 is the lowest.
