The 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event has finally ended and now comes the hangover, when every armchair poker player says why the World Champ is terrible. This year, that talk revolves around one huge hand, the one on Day 8 back in July when the eventual winner, Jonathan Duhamel, sucked out on the river against Matt Affleck, eliminating Affleck in 15th place

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.

There are so many forms of the game that it can be tricky choosing exactly what to do particularly when you want to play poker online for real money. Considering two of the most popular versions of poker, should you choose Texas Hold’Em or Omaha Hold’Em?
Of course, the basic game is the same in both versions – Build the best five-card hand that you can and hope to beat your opponents. The major difference is that in Texas Hold’Em, often known as just plain Hold’em, you can choose any five cards from your hand and the community boards. In Omaha Hold’em, which is generally known as just plain Omaha, two cards must come from your hand. As a result, the potential card combinations are far greater with Texas Hold’Em.
The result of this is significant. For a start, in Omaha you either have the best hand or you don’t, there is not as much room for movement. So trying to deceive your opponent when you have low scoring cards is not usually as effective as it is when you play Hold’Em. The flexibility of Hold’Em also means that there tends to be more action in the game than there is with Omaha. This may impact your enjoyment of the game.
Omaha tends to be more of a tactical game and so where Hold’Em players tend to raise and re-raise, this can be problematic when playing Omaha. Another factor to consider is that Hold’Em is a quicker game, so when you play online you will get more action.

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.

Released a few years ago, World Poker Tour for the Sony PSP is actually the best portable poker game made so far and some would argue that it's a better way to play the game than anything shy of a dedicated online poker room or live tournament.

The game's solid structure and realistic experience has been praised by reviewers and poker players alike and the artificial intelligence used makes decisions more than merely calling or folding based on patterns you've seen.

The experience starts early, when you create your character.
While you can base it on yourself (and I did, my first time through,) it actually adds a level of fun to the game when you go all-out with your designs, in particular the clothing and accessories that are supplied by a seemingly endless virtual wardrobe. Read more…

Much like the fields of crypto zoology and psychic studies, poker is full of myths that have become inflated to the point where they're accepted as fact by many people who aren't familiar with the game, and by a shocking number that are. We're going to do a blow-by-blow look at three of the most popular ones and explain why they are myths and not based on fact. Read more…
