NL Texas Hold'm in Genting..

Postby 89suited » Fri Feb 08, 2008 5:19 pm

Hi all,thought i fill you in on this.They now hv two tables,7 players max each.You play agst the dealer,min M$10 ante.You may also put min M$10 on "Bonus" bet in case you get pocket pairs,AK,AQ or AJ suited or unsuited.You're paid min 3 times up to 30 times. With bets placed ($10 on Bonus + $10 on ante),the dealer deals a card each to the players till each gets two hold cards.At this stage,dealer is NOT dealt any cards yet.Having seen your hold cards,you decide whether to fold (meaning you lose M$20 straight away) or you continue by betting M$20 (2 times yr ante)on the "Flop" spot.Then, the dealer deals the three Flop cards.You next decide to either check or bet another $10 before a card is dealt to you at the Turn.Now you can either check or bet (put up another $10) before the River.Next, the River card is then dealt. Finally, dealer gets his two cards.Then, you win, lose or tie with the dealer. Good luck and have fun if you should play there!

to those who dont know what -EV means, its means you have more chance of turning a profit throwing money down the toilet or burning it

hey yup i was just there.. it's definitely negative expectation if you just play the hands. but the bonus pay out is abit imba i think. I personally think they will lower it..
the holdem table was one in the casino that was actually losing money the 3 days i was there. i made abt 600RM of them too. can see they still monitoring the holdem tables for EV cos the managers were always ard..

uh huh

you quoting evidence from a guy who thinks it takes 11 hours more to lose his bankroll in a game with better odds?

craps vs blackjack

The numbers there are obviously pulled out of his ass. Craps even takes longer to play than blackjack. Even if they had the same odds, craps would take longer to bust you.

I'm not even going to go into the insane +EV he puts on investing in penny stocks.
I especially like how he thinks futures are high risk negative, but property is high risk positive.


Also, not all house games are advantaged to the house. That's why they kick card counters out of vegas, and use continuous shufflers most other places.
Basic strategy for blackjack yields 0.5% to the house, not 0.8%.

yeah , your probably right. I have learnt that not all information we get from the internet is accurate.
But I do know that stepping into the casino is probably -EV, unless you are playing poker, but even if so , the rake in live casino is sooo horrible.

Online poker = still the best ^_^

As for spending $$ for entertainment, i think many other forms of entertainment are more worth while then gambling in the casino

Girls > Gambling

In my view, LOL
