Poker, Tips For Beginners

Poker, Tips For Beginners Part 2

Make sure you know all the rules well

Make sure you know all the rules well

In poker, as in any other game, do not do without knowledge of all the rules. To begin with, you need to learn to deal with combinations, to understand “what beats what”. That is, you must understand how 2×2=4, that the flash beats the street, and the full house beats them both. But that’s not all, you have to deal with bets, with opening cards, with side banks, with different formats of tournaments, etc.

There are many different resources for learning in today’s poker world, from books and forums to tutorial videos and handouts analysis. If you prefer to play online, you can start making your first steps in poker with a game of conditional money. There’s no shame in it. We all used to start and learn combinations. And there’s nothing wrong with doing it on tables with conditional money, where you won’t risk anything.

All poker rooms online offer a game with conditional money. There you will get used to the game, you will understand all the rules in detail. But remember that there you can not win real money. And the goal of every professional green carder is to earn poker. So as soon as you understand the basics and feel comfortable, go to the game for real money. Otherwise, you can get stuck on a safe game of conditional chips for a very long time, and lose precious time.

Do not be fond of drawing a dart

There is a bug that is very common with beginners inexperienced players – they love to play dro and are willing to pay a lot for them. Here it is important to understand the concepts of basic poker math, and above all the chances of the bank.
You can only collide your wood hand if the odds of the Pot allow it. That is, your equity (chances to collect a winning hand) should be higher than the current chances of the bank.

Do not play the highsteix

This advice is directly related to the game of bankroll. You need to play as part of your bankroll. But even if you have a big bankroll, you should not go to limits for which you do not have enough experience.

If you are just starting your poker career, I would advise you to start with the lowest limits – both online and offline. Most often online, this limit will be NL2. This game has a maximum buy-in of $2, and the blinds are 1 and 2 cents. You may be bored on such low limits. But this should only give you the incentive to beat this limit faster and go further.

This game will help you form the right poker habits, and above all discipline. If you are inexperienced and with money immediately go to the clouds’ limits, the regulators will be only glad to see you there. But for you it will end quite quickly and sadly. You should not overestimate your strength and abilities. You can’t do without experience, distance and a long work on yourself in poker.

Do not play too many tables at the same time

Do not play too many tables at the same time

Beginner players should not hurry and quickly move to multiteaming. In online multiteibling is very profitable, and thanks to it you can increase your winnings. But for this there is a necessary condition – you must be ready for it.

Each additional table takes away some of your concentration, and you can start making mistakes. So you should start the game with one table. And when you feel confident, comfortable and even a little bored, only then add the next table. Adding tables is also recommended one at a time. So you can gradually get used to the new format of the game, and can stop in time if you feel uncomfortable playing and you will notice some mistakes due to loss of focus.

Understand the importance of the position

Understand the importance of the position

Position is one of the key moments for success in poker. You should try to play as many hands as possible from a position, and then your winnings will grow. When you are the last to make a decision, you have an undeniable advantage – information, and thus you can increase your profit on the course. Information about your opponent’s actions will allow you to take full control of the handouts. You will be able to place a valley or bluff bet. You will be able to check back and see a free card on the next street. You will have everything in your hands.

But your opponent will have to act first and guess exactly what you will do. So try to play a lot of hands from the Button and Cat-offs – from late positions, and be more careful when you do not have a position.

Use poker software

Some poker professionals win without using poker software. But if you are a beginner player and want to take all steps to improve your results, you can not do without poker trackers. Such programs will definitely help you make better decisions, so you should definitely try them.
Poker trackers collect all the necessary information from the handouts you play and convert it into convenient statistics. This will help you generate useful reds on your opponents.

Using HUD becomes just a necessary part of the game if you switch to multiplaying – simultaneous play at several tables. Multiteaming requires many decisions at once, and it will be very difficult for you to keep track of all the events and actions at all tables at once. Using poker software will help you quickly classify your opponents as chips or regulators, and you can build a suitable counter strategy against each of them.

Have fun

Have fun

This advice does not seem serious, but in fact it is very important. You need to learn how to love poker and enjoy the process of playing it. Poker is a fascinating game with different formats (from cash games to tournaments, from heads-up to MTT). You need to find the most suitable format for you, and it is necessary that you like what you do.

In poker there are strong Astrias and Downtrees. Sometimes you will jump with joy, and sometimes you will fall into deep depression. A professional greener plays a lot, and you just won’t be able to play this volume if poker is not for your joy. Your love of the game is what will help you cope with failures and go further, straight to the victories.

Poker, Tips For Beginners

Poker, Tips For Beginners Part 1

All professionals once were also quite inexperienced.

Basics that you must apply in your game to become a strong player and to succeed.

Sometimes it is difficult for a novice player to understand all the information about poker, which today can be found in the expanses of the Internet. And you just want to find clear, simple, specific tips written in clear language and applicable in real life.

The right start in poker is very important. It is during this period, you will form poker habits and skills, which will be necessary in the future. If you develop the wrong habits in your game. It will be very difficult for you to get rid of them in the future, and they will seriously harm your results on the course. Therefore, in this article we will discuss basic tips for beginners, which will help to organize the right start to a poker career.

Play a small number of hands

Play a small number of hands

For beginners in poker, it is very important to learn to play secretly. That is, you need to play only relatively strong starting hands. What do I mean by “relatively strong hands”?

Here is the basic rule that will help you play cache games for 6 and 9 players:

  • 6max – top 20% of the starting hands
  • 9max – top-15% of starting hands

In order to make it easier for you to understand what are the ranges of 20% and 15% of the starting hands, I will give you an approximate chart here.

That is, in practice, it means that you have to fold 80-85% of the starting hands that you get at the beginning of distribution. This may seem unrealistic, but listen to this advice.

There is a reason why poker beginners are better off keeping a strong secret in the game. If you start playing immediately with a wider range, you will more often find yourself in difficult situations and will have to make difficult decisions. You will be able to get into a situation when you get into a top pair or even a flash, and your opponent will have an older kicker or flash drive.

So accept the fact that at the beginning of your poker career you will have to fold, and do it very often.

Be aggressive with the hands that you are playing

Be aggressive with the hands that you are playing

So, you know an approximate range of starting hands that you are recommended to cast. So how exactly do you need to cast them? The only answer is aggressive.

This means that it is desirable for you to enter the distribution of the races. If you are the first player to enter the distribution after the blinds, do not make a limp, make a raid. I would recommend you to make a 3 BB raid online. And in live poker you can put even more.

Do not let yourself play passively, an aggressive game will help you immediately take control of the distribution in your hands. And then on the flop you will be able to continue your aggression (put a contrabet), and very often you will win the bank without further struggle.

Play against weak poker players

Play against weak poker players

There is the most important key to success in the poker world – look for weaker players and play with them as many distributions as possible. It is often possible to hear phrases like “sweet table”, “profitable game. It means. That there are many weaker players at the table – chips or recreational players, as they are called. These are players who play much more than 20% of the starting hands, some play with “any two”. They also often enter the game with a limp and play post-flop passively.

In poker it is against such opponents you will get the maximum profit, because they constantly make big mistakes. Against experienced mystery rivals you, on the contrary, will receive a profit is much more difficult, because they play thoughtfully and are mistaken much less often.

Therefore it is very important to learn how to search and notice recreational players, and then take advantage of their weaknesses. And this will be helped by Table Selection, which is an essential skill for any poker professional.

Do not get carried away with bluffing

A very important point when playing against weak players is not to bluff in them often. And there is an obvious reason for that – these players love to call, and will often open your bluff even with very weak hands.
If you’ve raided a preflop, you can make a contrabet very often on the flop, and that won’t be a mistake. But if your bet has been collided, you need to be able to stop in time.

You shouldn’t blindly put barrels on the thorn and river, especially if you have nothing at all. Many players spend a lot of money trying to bluff the weaker players. It is very important to have discipline and learn how to just play the check or fudge at all, when you have nothing at all, and you are opposed by the autocolller. So you will lose a lot less and you can win in another hand.

Often put the valleybet

Often put the valleybet

Excellent quality poker – for each yin there is a yang. In other words, there is a plus for every minus. And if weak players are so fond of collating and so it’s almost impossible to bluff against them, there’s a plus – you can always put the valleybet, and they will collate them.
If you are opposed to a recreational player whose favorite action is to call, don’t be afraid to go too far with the valleybet. Often, he will call you by the younger pair and even by the ace-hai. So if you have a top pair or even a middle pair with a strong kicker, it’s time for your volleybet.

Such players will be a great source of profit for you, and this is the main reason why you have to play a lot against weak players. Fishes will play very wide ranges and will gladly pay you for your frequent volleybettes.

Play exclusively as part of your bankroll

Play exclusively as part of your bankroll

This is one of the basic tips for beginners – to play on your bankroll. What is a bankroll, you may ask? It is the total amount of money that you have allocated exclusively for poker. This applies both offline and online.
Personally, I suggest you have at least 20 buy-ins for the game you prefer to play, which means that if you play a $50 buy-in, you should have at least $1,000 at your disposal for your bankroll. There is an obvious reason for this – poker is characterized by the Austrians and Downstrians (so-called swings). There is even a technical term that characterizes the volatility of poker – dispersion. Sometimes you can lose 5 buy-ins in one session.

If your bankroll consisted of only five buy-ins, you would lose all in one session and could not afford to continue the game. This is a common mistake of beginner players to take risks, enter a more expensive game than their bankroll allows and lose everything.

Blackjack players’ shiks, tips for the right game

According to Blackjack theory, whole books are written, and in one article it is impossible to give recommendations that will turn a beginner into a professional who regularly makes a profit. But ignoring the following tips in the shortest possible time will lead to the loss of the whole bankroll.

In Blackjack, as in any other gambling game, there are certain rules that it is desirable to follow in order to defeat your opponents. After all, in another case, the chances of winning an online casino will be simply miserable. In addition, it is very important to avoid popular mistakes in this game. What are the most common mistakes made by blackjack players? For your convenience, we have collected them in this article.

Don’t follow the cards

Don't follow the cards

Players who decide to just have fun playing blackjack often do not pay any attention to the types of cards on the table, as well as their total number. Yes, the vast majority of errors in this gambling fun happen because of the strong inattention of participants. So, if you do not pay attention to the ratio of small and large cards after each shuffle, you can simply forget about reasonable bets. Chances to win, as a rule, are determined in the first rounds. That’s why if at this stage you can see a lot of aces and a dozen, then you shouldn’t make big bets at once.

Play without knowing all the rules

All entertainment in the casino has rules. So before you start a certain game it is very important to know its official rules. The same goes for blackjack. When can I double it after splitting? Will the dealer stop at seventeen points or more? Is it possible to just give up in this case?

Play with shuffle machines

As a rule, such a machine contains five or four decks of cards. It collects the dropped cards from one or more rounds and systematically mixes them. Thus, the chances of winning the casino are increased and the player is reduced. Therefore in any case game with traditional shufflers for two or one deck is more preferable.

Place additional bets

Place additional bets

What are the other major errors when playing blackjack? Making additional bets, which cost only one dollar and can be of different types, is quite an attractive opportunity for beginner amateurs. However, it is important to understand that even if a player wins a number of additional bets, he will lose more. After all, the advantage in the game in this case is on the side of the gambling establishment. Since the additional bets, compared to the usual chances, do not cost much, the player feels tempted to continue betting, without paying attention to his losses.

In the end, the user loses all his money. This trick was invented solely to increase the profits of online casinos.

To believe that blackjack is a real team game

It may well seem to you that blackjack is such a card team game. That’s why everybody should work together at the table to be able to defeat the insidious dealer. To think in such a way is a dangerous mistake. Therefore, it is worth playing only according to the basic strategy.

Not to understand the difference in payments 3:2 and 6:5.

Often players simply do not see any difference between receiving a payout 6:5 or 3:2. Currently, online casinos offer a 6:5 payment in Blackjack with only one deck. The difficulty in playing the game with 6:5 payment is not just that you will get a little less money in this case. It also increases the chances of the institution by almost 1.5%. That is, it is desirable in any case to avoid such a game if you expect to win.

Fall into excitement

Fall into excitement

If we talk about the main mistakes when playing blackjack, we can’t help but mentioning too much and uncontrolled gambling. Individual players, whose attention is fully absorbed by the atmosphere of a gambling establishment, flaunt the love of great risk. They put much more than they can afford, and play only because they came here for the game, not for the winnings. You can win a card game of blackjack, but for this it is important to remember what you are playing for. It is not worth playing just for the impression of other players.

At the beginning of the game you should keep your own bets on the minimum. If you are lucky enough to win several bets in a row, you should not imagine yourself invincible. If all your money will be lost, it is important to deny yourself a trip to the ATM to continue the game. It is necessary to accept the fact that today is not your day.

And now a few tips for a beginner on the game itself:

Wrongly chosen casino

Different institutions vary the rules, which affects the probability of winning the client.

Increases the chances of the player:

  • maximum allowed number of respirates;
  • possibility to double the bet on any two cards;
  • a ban for the dealer to take on soft cards.

Decreases the chances:

  • Increases the number of decks in the shuzes;
  • a ban on surrender if the dealer has dozens or aces;
  • impossibility to play double after split.

By these criteria, you should choose a casino with the most loyal to the visitor conditions. And most importantly – do not even consider participating in the game, if the payment for Black Jack is less than 3:2 (some institutions practice 6 to 5, and this is what brings them the most serious advantage).

Avoid games using a random number sensor (almost all online offers). Reasons:

  • The unreality of controlling the device;
  • the uselessness of card counting.

Train for free. By joining an online casino you can play blackjack without a deposit, just for the sake of experience. This will allow you to test and improve your skills and invest real money only when you are confident in yourself.

Playing blackjack with a live dealer

Try not to make an insurance bet when the dealer has an Ace card open. The insurance rate has a negative expectation and makes sense only for professional blackjack players who count cards.

And finally, give preference to playing blackjack in a land casino or playing with a live dealer. When playing Blackjack with a live dealer, you will be able to track every step of the game. Do not surrender your fate to a soulless machine.

Roulette and how to play it

Roulette and how to play it?

General Info

In European roulette, the wheel consists of 37 sectors numbered from 0 (zero) to 36, which means that you have a better chance of winning than in roulette varieties with more sectors, such as American roulette.

The betting table is divided into two parts, inner and outer, and you can bet on each of them different types of roulette.

The inner part is for betting on individual numbers or groups of up to 6 numbers located next to each other in the betting table.

The outer part is for betting on big or small numbers, odd or even, red or black (18 numbers each). Groups of 12 rooms (three “columns” and three “dozens”) are also available for betting here.

General Info about roulette

In addition, there are additional bets on groups of 7 to 17 rooms. They are placed on different segments of the wheel, but you can place your bets with a single click on the “rarestrake” – part of the roulette table, which shows the real wheel with the numbers in the same order as on the wheel, rather than in the order as in the table of bets.

Rules of the game

After you sit down at the table, you need to choose the color of chips for this session. The client program allows you to quickly select the face value and number of chips to bet.

For a beginner, roulette bets may seem difficult, as different players place their bets differently. But in fact the betting rules are quite simple.

You can bet on any number or group of numbers using internal and external bets. It is important to remember that any external bet, as well as the sum of all internal bets, must be at least the minimum set for the table. At the same time, external and internal bets are placed independently of each other, and therefore the minimum requirement must be met for them.

Rules of the game

If your bet wins, the original bet is returned to your account and you get the winnings depending on what you have bet on (see table below). If your bet loses, you lose it.

Our client program automatically checks the betting amount and will not let you place a bet less than the minimum bet. Therefore, if you have chosen a bet less than the minimum, you will automatically place a minimum bet by clicking the place for the first time.

The program summarizes all internal bets and makes sure that the minimum betting condition is met. If the minimum bet is not reached, these bets will be deleted when the wheel is started (when the time allowed for betting expires).

If you play at a multiplayer table, only bets that have been placed within the allotted time will be placed. On tables for one player you need to confirm your bets and then press the “Spin” button.

Racetrack and bets

There are other ways to place a bet, including a table area called “raisterek”. This is part of the roulette table, which is a wheel with numbers in the same order as the wheel itself. You can click on one of the numbers to place a bet. You may also place a bet on two adjacent numbers.

With the help of a roulette table you can make four more special bets, which will automatically make the corresponding bets on the table of bets.

Bets on two adjacent numbers (split), having one color (black or red) in the betting table, can be made with one action using the controls located near the raid.

Red next to each other (4 bets)Black next to each other (7 bets)

Betting Restrictions

Most of the casinos around the world that play European roulette have general betting restrictions. In this case, for external and internal bets are often set different minimums and maximums.

The maximum external bet, indicated on the table, means the maximum amount that can be bet on each external betting position. The total maximum is not set.

Maximum internal bet, indicated on the table, means the maximum amount that can be bet on one number (direct bet).

Betting Restrictions

For other types of internal bets (split, line, street, etc.), set its own maximum, which depends on the maximum rate per room. The general rule is as follows: the more rooms you cover with a bet, the higher the limit. For example, a direct bet covers 1 number, and its maximum size is 25 chips. Split covers 2 numbers, so the maximum bet is twice as big – 50 chips. Street covers 3 numbers, so the maximum bet is 75 chips, etc.

For example, if the maximum bet on one number is 25 chips, you can place up to 40 bets on or around 25 chips, for example, such a number in the middle column as 17 (straight bet (1), 4 split (8), 1 street (3), 4 corners (16) and two lines (12)), betting a total of 1,000 chips.

Facility’s Advantage

The advantage of an institution (house edge) is the difference between true chances and winnings. In European roulette this value is 2.70%.

The advantage of the facility in American roulette is 5.26%. The advantage of the facility for betting on 5 lines in American roulette is 7.89%.

Facility's Advantage

Saved rates

At single player tables you can save your favorite bets so that you can then quickly and easily make certain combinations of bets. Click “Save Current Bets” to add it to your favorites list. Saved bets can be managed from the “My bets” menu.

Multiplayer Tables

That’s why we offer roulette tables for several players, at which you can meet friends and have fun together. Multiplayer roulette tables turn an online game into an interactive entertainment that is almost no different from a game in a regular casino.

For people who just want to start gambling, it is difficult enough to learn how to earn money in this difficult way. They make a lot of mistakes trying to fool the system, and as a result they are left with nothing. Therefore, it is worth knowing that the game of slots does not depend on you, the machine produces the result itself and you can not radically affect it in any way.

Casino Tips

Casinos offer a variety of games to captivate everyone – and those who dream of breaking the jackpot, and those who just want to have a good night.

Regardless of whether you are a beginner or an experienced player, it is important to know the useful tricks that will help you spend time in the casino with pleasure and get more winnings.

Some players will manage to make a big score, but the vast majority of them won’t. In the long term, the casino will win, because this is how these games work.

However, in any game there are different strategic techniques that can be used to increase the chances of winning. Here are our main casino gameplay tips for beginners.

Tips for playing the slot machines

Slot machines are the simplest and most popular type of casino gambling.

The gambling process is simple: click the button, win or lose, repeat.

Most of the casino profits (70% or more of the total profit from gambling) is the profit from slot machines.

How does it work?

The average expected profit for casinos on slots varies from place to place, but is usually around 10%.

Everything here is built on pure luck, as opposed to games with predicted outcomes, such as blackjack or poker. On slots, the result is determined by a computer program called a random number generator.

When you click on the start button, a numerical combination is generated. It determines which symbols will be shown and whether it is a win or lose.
No matter what you are told, there is no winning strategy on slot machines, although there are recommendations that should be kept in mind.

Strategies for playing on slots

Consider some strategic techniques that make sense to use to increase your chances of winning money.


1) Play on fixed payments

With a fixed payout there is a better chance of winning than playing on progressive machines with accumulating jackpots.
Because of the huge number of people who want to win one big jackpot, your chances of winning in a progressive slot machine are reduced. This also applies to the chances of smaller amounts.

2) Avoid video slots

Compared to conventional machines, video slots are paid much less; the difference is up to 5% of the refund amount. At first glance it seems to be small things, but in fact it’s a lot of money for slots.

3) Choose games with the smallest jackpots

The smaller the jackpot, the easier it is to win it, so your chances of leaving the casino as a winner increase.

Tips for board games

When visiting the casino it is important to remember that some games you will definitely lose. No matter how capable and experienced you are, the casino is responsible for the chances of winning.

Board Games

First of all, you have to decide beforehand how much money you can afford to spend in the casino, and take cash with you exactly this amount, no more.

If you have lost all the cash you brought with you, go away. Then you will not expose yourself to financial risks just because of the night at the casino.

Secondly, read and remember the strategic tips below to practice the game, increase your winnings and gain experience.

Table games

Basic strategies for board games

To have an advantage over a casino, read the basic rules below.

Table games
1) Keep track of the time
When entering a real casino, please note that there are no watches or windows in the room. Such establishments are designed to ensure that the player lost track of time and played as long as possible.
For the same reason in some casinos the croupier is prohibited to wear a watch. In this regard, it makes sense to wait until you win some money, to know the time and to leave.
2) Do not play Keno
If you expect to earn money, it is better to stay away from Keno, because the chances of winning are negligible. In some places, casino profits are 35%.
No player has ever had all 20 numbers matching the 20 numbers selected on the ticket, so winning is catastrophically unlikely.
3) Keep an eye on the award
In some casinos with board games, sexy girls in bikinis have recently been working as croupiers.
This kind of casino is also called “low-grade parties”, because at first glance they look like a casino in Vegas with free alcohol and beautiful women, and in fact in most cases the expected profit of such casinos doubles. So always go to ordinary, classic casinos.
4) When playing roulette
Always bet on a tiny chance, whether it’s red/black, odd/even, above/below, column or dozen. The winnings will be insignificant, but they will help you win the game as a whole.
Moreover, the gambling house will always arrange a profit on roulette even at 5%. You have a better chance of winning in the short term, but if you play roulette without stopping, the casino will eventually take away all the tokens. So if you win, stop.
5) Do not drink
Alcohol dulls the senses and clouds the mind, which is why the casino constantly offers free alcohol. Avoid drinking alcohol and it is better to just focus on enjoying the winnings.
6) Tips for Texas Hold’em and Omaha
If you play this type of board games, it is important for you to hide all your emotions and play with a stone face. If you do not show your real feelings, your chances to bluff will increase.
