I am new to Denver and heard there are private poker clubs around downtown (not the mountain casinos), and want to know the following info:
Games and limits
Do you have to pay a membership, or know someone to get in?
The games in the Denver area have slowed down quite a bit in the past few months. The only game going right now is a 10-20 Holdem at the Med Club on Colfax Avenue and I believe you have to know someone to get in. Their phone number is 303-329-0485 if you want to call and find out for sure.

I am planning to take a trip to Biloxi this weekend and would appreciate any/all advice or suggestions. Where to stay, what online roulette site is the best, where to have a few drinks. Should I all somewhere to reserve rooms? I will be driving from Atlanta and this will be my first time playing at the casino, but I played for about 4 years at $1-$3 home games. Any advice would be helpful.

Well dont stay at the Grand (great rooms but $139/night weekend rate) or the Holiday Inn (just plain sucks). You definitely need to make reservations if you want to stay in Biloxi itself over the weekend. There are a couple of Best Westerns that didnt look too bad, and a brand new Holiday Inn Express. If you cant find anything in Biloxi, there are tons of economy motels along I-10...
Im a pretty good poker player not the best, but good, and improving all the time. I play tight/aggressive, read opponents well, and dont chase unless the pot odds are there. Ive always subscribed to the theory that I should stay in a good game, even if Im losing. I now think this is not a good strategy. Over the past few sessions, Ive been getting killed in great games. Getting beat by two outers over and over again. Whatever card they needed, they got. Whenever I needed a card, it never came. Why should I continue to play if Im running ice cold like that?
I believe firmly in confidence and momentum, they feed off each other. Once you lose one of them, the other goes too. The fact that youve even posted the question shows youve lost both for the moment. Take a break. A short one... Read More
Why doesnt Planet Poker offer pot limit or no limit? They could have a great holdem or Omaha pot limit game if it was offered, I would like to see a small blind pot limit game, such as 1-2-2 or 1-2-5. Small enough for the little player but big enough to protect a decent hand that usually gets cracked in the limit games.
If were talking about pot-limit and no-limit games with pot sizes and fluctuations larger than the fixed limit games, the reason has more to do with the mechanisms by which money can easily be gotten into the system in large sums than any limitations on the software. Same goes for limits beyond $20/$40. Read More
Also, Im a little sceptical about how popular pot limit or no limit would be online, being that face-to-face tells and manipulation is such a large part of the gam...
Is there some simple philosophy regarding the posting of a blind upon entering a game? Should you post immediately, wait for the button to reach a certain position in relation to your seat, or what. I feel that there is probably a pretty simple explanation for this, but I cant see it. Some people post immediately and others choose to wait out. Sometimes Im told that I will be unable to play until after the button. Whats this ruling?
Answer 1: Read More
The logic behind waiting is fairly straightforward. If you post immediately, you wind up paying $25 in blinds for 10 hands of poker (2.50/hand.) If you wait for your big blind, you only pay $15 in blinds for 10 hands of poker (1.50/hand.) If you wait for the button to pass, you pay $10 for 8 hands of poker (1.25/hand.)...
There are 12 players left in a Holdem No Limit Tournament – six players on two tables. Nine players receive money first prize 196000. The blinds are 2000/4000 and youre in the big blind with 26500 left after youve posted. Aggressive player (pre-lop raise rate 20-25 % since the blinds where 1500/3000) raises from the button. You have AJ.
What do you do?
c) Raise all-in
My first question would be how much he/she raised, and my second question would be how many players have entered the pot and/or called their raise. I would also take into account the size of his/her stack. (I dont think I would like taking AJo against a raise from a large stack, aggressive or not. But thats just my opinion.)
Unless you have near 100% certainty that the raise is a bluff, f... Read More
10-handed semi-loose game. You are 2 to the right of the button with JJ and 2 players already in a pot which is un-raised. You have a very tight image. Call or raise?
Call. Hope for a multi way pot. 3 or 4 is the worst for hands like jacks, so just call and hope for a large multi way pot.
This is a good situation to exploit to your advantage in 10-20 if you have a tight image. Raise. With a bit of luck, youll buy the button and chase out the blinds. If you can buy the button, you are in a good position to steal the hand on the flop... Read More
