The principal instrument due to which a casino systematically wins is an in-built mathematical advantage in all the games. Either you play in slot machines, roulette, baccarat, or dice – it is all the same. Firstly, you play against a gambling establishment. Secondly, it must still be in the black. It charges a fair price for satisfaction of a human game need, in particular a gambling need.
However, there are gambling games in which you can gain a mathematical advantage thanks to your abilities. These are black jack, poker, slot machines, for example, some types of videopoker.
As regards black jack, videopoker, then, in point of fact, you play against a casino, so to say, dive into the pocket of a commercial enterprise. Do you think a gambling establishment likes it?
Surely, not. Therefore, a casino will always counteract such gamblers. As a result, even if you win, yours will be rather a hard toil.
What is left afterward? As you have probably guessed – it is poker. Poker is a game in the variety of types of which there are both the factor of luck as well as the factor of abilities, mixed in different degrees.
For example, in a tournament poker the factor of luck is rather essential – here, a super champion can get the knock after the first round. Here a person who has got a gambling experience of just one year, more than that, on-line, can win the largest tournament and get a check for a seven-digit sum. It happened just this way last year at the World Series of poker.
Understanding poker’s rules are not burdensome. It will take you hardly a few hours. To thoroughly understand and effectively use a number of strategies, it will take you a few weeks. Even at this stage, one can gain the result, which will at least come to zero. It is already great – to satisfy one’s gambling need free of charge. If you are a football fan, then it is just the same as visiting all the matches of your favorite team free of charge!
To become a master of poker, you will need several years. In this case, again, sticking to a football analogy, you will not simply watch your favorite team play but become its full member and get money for it.
There are not so many real professionals. Generally speaking, I would not personally recommend becoming a full-blood professional. It is my belief that for the majority of people, it is pretty enough to become a successful poker player, regularly to gain, and then you will decide for yourself if it is worth “getting mad” and in the course of many years playing one and the same game.
How is it still better to play: off-line or on-line? Much can be said about it, but if you are a beginner and would like to try yourself, then I am sure it is better to start with on-line games.
It would help if you had a computer priced at more than 300 dollars. You need stable access to the Internet. It would help if you had a lifelong gambling bank the size of 500 big stakes or the so-called sessional one the size of 200-300 big stakes. I won’t go into detail – to begin with, 100 dollars will be more than enough. Also, having opened an account on-line, be sure that you will get a bonus from 50 to 100 dollars on average. It will be enough to start with.
The primary advantages of an on-line game are as follows:
Also, a crucial moment to remember: you can play without any strategy and use poker as an ordinary slot machine to play at random and at a venture.
At this, you can surely win something like jackpot, that is, to win some big on-line tournament, and the chances for it are not less than, let’s say, while playing on the ordinary slot machines.
Nowadays, poker is played by dozens of millions of people all around the world. I advise you to start playing this exciting game which can considerably add to your budget as a result or even become your professional and principal earner!
