How to Make Money by Watching Poker on TV

I have been playing poker now for over a year, and I have found that one of the most profitable ways to make money playing poker is to watch poker tournaments. Now I don’t talk about having to actually play in them or anything, but I find it very easy to watch. The shows are full of towns and cities and how people live there, sometimes with a slight tv filter.

Now I could talk about tournaments in 7meter, and how they work, but I think it is a lot easier to talk about watching them from the comfort of your own home and how they are broadcast. Lets start out with the good and bad points, I have done both in the past couple years.

I watched a little over $2.7 million dollars won by a 24 year old from Connecticut last year. Now that’s a big win I know, but in the year that he played he went from $100 pocket change into over $2.7 million. Not bad for a guy that watched cards for 10 hours a day. He says that its a combination of skill, luck, and how you play the game not only. I am going to let you in on a little secret about cards that unless you are a bricks and mortar poker player need to stay out of casinos.

The biggest mistake many poker players make is playing too many hands. This is one of the fastest ways to lose and get CARD BOARD!!! You need to fold some hands, and you need to fold some hands to win. Some of the players that I see on TV all have some of the worst cards on the table. This is due to playing online, where players see more hands per hour than at a brick and mortar.

How to win at poker depends on how you play. You need toStudy the game, memorize all of the possible situations, and have a good poker face. Not only that, you need to have confidence in your skills and your game, and never let anyone see you are struggling. If you let them see you are struggling you will never get better, because everyone will want to take your money away from you.

However, if you keep your face completely blank when you are playing, you will be much more successful. It is the big soccer league of sports. If you keep your face blank, you might as well just be taking your shirt off. What I’ve learned from watching a lot of poker tournaments is that the best players don’t like to put a lot of money on the line. They will do a lot better playing small to medium pocket pairs, especially online, than they will play 9-5 poker. The reason is simple, it’s a lot easier to win playing a 6 hand game of cat and mouse than it is playing a 9 hand game of blackjack.

I used to play on the odd occasion, but I never thought to myself, this is what I needed to do for work. Since then, I have quit my day job, and gone from making 500 a night to sometimes making 2 or 3. What a great way to buy into poker tournaments and never have to work again.

Please remember, that even though you can make a lot of money playing online poker tournaments, you can still lose a lot of money. I’ve learned my lessons well. I now know the best way to win at online poker tournaments, is to learn how to play in a poker tournament and constantly make the correct decisions. You can do this by signing up for poker school that will train you in multiple styles of play. You will learn to play a variety of starting hands with many gimmicks.

Make sure you know what a player’s status is before you make your move against them. If you are in a forum poker game, and a particular player is a confirmed loose player, you can be pretty sure you can beat them without playing much. If a player is a confirmed tight player, it may still be possible you can beat them, even if they are very aggressive.

For example, in the event I mentioned earlier of a 24 year old playing with a confirmed loose player, even with hands as weak as 7 – 6, I can’t recommend placing a large amount of money on the line with that tight player. That 24 year old tends to at least win heads up less than 20% of the time, and is a known loose player. You notice them, and you know if you can beat them, you can probably take them apart. That is what they are – known members of the poker community, not as a newbie that can take on anyone.

Sizeable winnings can be earned by taking known loose players to the cleaners. Kudos to you if you can learn to play against them for less than 20$ each session, otherwise you can just keep feeding them for more known handles.


What is a Poker creator?

What is a Poker creator?

Keno is a game of nearly pure chance in which each player starts with a number of balls and you have to guess (on paper) the 20 numbers corresponding to those balls. lets say you have selected 20 numbers and you have circled them onto a piece of paper. you then write “Unknown” beside each number. Should you win, you mail the tickets to the lottery company, who then pays you a dollar ($1,000×20). How Does this work?

First, you have to designate a sum of money for your “Unknown” prize. say it was $300, then you could cash out for $300 and still get the $300 profit. Or, if you want the money in 2 years, you could make 20 bets, which will each be $4,000 each. If you win, then you will receive the $4,000 in 20 evenly-$1,000 amounts.

You need to realize that casinos will take the Unknown money and either buy it back or pay you less. This is advantageous because if you win the first time, you can bankroll your losses and still profit. Lets say you walk up to the front desk at the casino and deposit $100, the casino has no idea who you are or what your playing habits are, yet they will still pay you $1,000.

Some casinos will take the Unknown money and pay you less than the break even amount. The break even amount is the amount you could win in one playing session were you to play for one hour. Obviously, you can’t play one hour of keno. Most casinos will pay you less than that amount, usually around $1.50 per hour. Even so, if you want to do this, you need to be a super star and have unlimited funds.

One system that lets you win money basically by playing keno is one the take a 25% commission on your bets. Lets say you bet $5 on a single number. You then circle the number on your ticket and write “ifa” (combination of a and the “Ace”). If you win, you give your $5 back to the casino. You’ve just won $25 ($5 you bet and the $1 the casino took) multiplied by 25% ($1.50) = $2.50 profit.

If a player is making bets outside of a keno group, he’s breaking the law. He’s not making a product but rather distributing theopoly commission to other players. Theopoly commission is advantageous to the casino, yet despite the name, card-counting systems aren’t illegal. They certainly aren’t Profitable. However, in situations where the count is positive, high cards favor the player because they increase the probability of busting the player for a blackjack (a very profitable hand) and the casino advantage begins to shift more in the casino’s favor

Paranoia ideally the dealer would be an easy target. The dealer is responsible for operating the game and knows what’s going on at all times. The players aren’t supposed to be able to see the dealer’s cards. Additionally, the player is not allowed to see the cards of the bola88.

On the other hand, card counting could be more complicated but even so the terms are simple. counters, on the other hand, are allowed to make bets larger than the standard $5 per hand. In addition, when the count score becomes positive and towards the positive end, the players are given an increased bonus.

Skilled players, again, are allowed to transcend the simple instructions and speak the language of the card counting in their own special language. They can indicate a likely positive card in the bible, an unlikely negative one, and adapt their bets accordingly. The result is that the casinos face a lot of complications. By adapting the card counting language, blackjack players make it harder for the casinos to defeat them.

Hence, blackjack card counting is really a new way of playing the game of blackjack. If you try to count cards, you are giving the casino a free shot at winning. The casinos counter this by shuffling the deck of cards. Increasing the probability that you will be able to spot patterns and can take advantage of those as well.

Blackjack card counting is still not considered illegal either, thus crossing the moral boundaries, but it may become one of the nicest things you can do as a player to mix business with pleasure. Casinos have quite a lot to gain, why not you?
