Blackjack has always fascinated the minds of enthusiastic players. It is impossible to consider casino games without including blackjack. A game older than 200 years, Blackjack was first played in France in the most famous and popular casinos. However, the game gained its current popularity and fame only after it was played in the United States, by the immigrants. As a rule, blackjack is not a game which can be considered complicated. The game can be played easily by anyone who enjoys a good game of cards.

The fact that over time Blackjack has made numerous players wealthy men has contributed to the aura of legend floating around the game. There are players who are exclusively dedicated to Blackjack with a loyalty that can hardly be matched by any other casino game. The purpose of playing blackjack is in fact beating the dealer without actually busting on him. Blackjack is also called 21 because the winning party is the person or house that finishes on 21 or is closest to 21. 21 is calculated as the added values of the cards. Cards have different values but generally from 2 to 10 they have the same value as the number on the card. The Ace can be either 1 or 11 depending on the players, while the Jack, Queen and King are 10.

Blackjack starts by placing the cards in the Shoe. Then players and dealer are given two cards each face up except for the dealer who gets one card which is face up and other face down. And now the game begins. Blackjack depends on the decision of the players to take one more card and get closest possible to 21 WITHOUT actually busting. The dealer must turn face up the card, which was dealt face down for players are not busting. Now, it is the dealer’s turn. When the face down card is tuned and if the value of the card is 17 or any number higher than that, the dealer stays. However, if dealer gets a face down card, which is 16 or lower than that, the dealer has to take another card. A Push is when the value of the dealer’s cards is the same as the highest value on the available table. That means that the hand or the activity is to be replayed.

Unlike other casino games, Blackjack is both a game of chance and a game of strategy. That is why the players should know their game. Online Blackjack games are not the same in every online casino and they are not the same as Blackjack games played in land casinos. There are many Blackjack variations and each variation has its own rules. It is advisable to know those rules before you get involved in playing seriously. Blackjack is an addictive game!

Another aspect of Blackjack is to be consistent with your winnings as well as your losses. Never bet too much or nothing. When you are winning, you are allowed to bet a little bit more but when you are losing do not forget to bet a little bit less.

One of the most exciting hands to flop is three-of-a-kind. When I flop a set or trips, my primary goal is to figure out how to get as many chips as possible from my opponent. Naturally, though, there are many things to consider, starting with the type of three-of-a-kind that presents itself.

For those of you who are new to poker, I would first like to clarify the difference between a “set” and “trips.” A set is a three-of-a-kind made with a pocket pair and one community card. Trips is a three-of-a-kind made with one of your hole cards and a pair on the board. This vocabulary distinction is not important when it comes to how you play the hand, but rather when describing the action to somebody. The listener will understand what happened better if you use the terms “set” and “trips” appropriately rather than interchangeably. Read more…

At the beginning of the poker boom, USA Broadcasting cashed in on the phenomenon with a unique take on the game show. Find out more in this week’s Poker In The Media.

This is one that came up in an email discussion last week around the offices: back in the very, very early days of the poker boom, USA Broadcasting (whose stations are now all owned by Univision) aired a game show based on strip poker for one season. The show, creatively enough called Strip Poker, only lasted one season – from 1999-2000, and from what I’ve found digging around the internet, that’s probably for the best, even with the prospect of naked people dancing around over the end credits.

Michael Mizrachi won a dramatic hand with A Q against Matthew Jarvis with pockets 9s. The flop came down with two queens giving Mizrachi the lead. But the turn was a 9, giving Jarvis the lead with a full house. An ace on the river gave Mizrachi a better full house to eliminate Jarvis in 8th place. Mizrachi was eliminated by Jonathan Duhamel in fifth place and won $2,332,992.

Pretty much every online poker player starts at the low-stakes tables when they decide to move into real-money games, and the reasons are pretty obvious. A lot of players will tell you that low-stakes games aren't profitable, but that's generally because low-stakes players find themselves in on way more hands than the should be. It's possible and in fact practical to play low-stakes poker for profit if you are comfortable with a longer, slower burn at the table with less action. Think Tight Aggressive and crank it up to about 10% past your usual play.

Preflop Strategies

As with any hold ‘em game, position plays a huge factor in low-stakes online poker games. Early position preflop players want to restrict their play to only the absolute best hands: AA, KK, QQ, JJ, AQ and AK. Limp in with a pocket pair of TT or lower and AJ is always more tempting than it should be. You're better off folding everything else when playing from the blinds or immediately after.
