What It Means to be a Professional Player on casino en ligne



There have been a number of recent articles at various poker web sites regarding how you can’t make money on the tournament trail. One article even went as far as to say that you can never be a professional poker player. I would like to address that article.


First of all, in order to deciefer whether or not one can be a professional poker player, one must know what the definition of “professional” is. According to one definition at, “professional” means “engaging in a given activity as a source of livelihood or as a career”. With that definition in mind, I can confidently report that there are “professionals” playing at just about every level of poker.


Here are a few examples…


Let’s start with Wayne. Wayne is a good friend of mine that plays about six hours a day of 1-4-8-8 at the President Casino. Wayne is a solid player who never goes on tilt. He takes the swings and survives the rake of low limits. While I think that Wayne could do much better for himself if he would move up to 10-20, he seems to be satisfied taking home an average of about $500 per week. You might compare his salary to that of a “professional” bartender.


Scott is an online player. We interviewed Scott on a recent edition of our Monday Night Poker radio show. Scott says that he plays limits that range from 2-4 to 15-30 and takes home an average of $600 per week. Again, this is not an example of somebody making a killing with poker, but certainly an example of somebody using poker as a source of livelihood. You might compare his salary to that of a “professional” educator.

During the 1994 Los Angeles earthquake, my house convulsed in the dark. I leaped from my bed to the hall doorway moments before a bookcase fell across the spot where I had been sleeping. Was my action a gamble or a calculated risk? Was I lucky? When we buy stock, change jobs, buy more computer technology, get married or buy a lottery ticket are we gambling or taking a calculated risk? What’s luck got to do with it?


In these turn of the century years, chaos and change bring disruption and opportunity to almost every area of our lives. Job security, gender roles and viable opportunities are in continual change. To keep our balance, survive and thrive we need to be clear and focused in our actions. Every choice we make, including the choice to do nothing, involves some kind of risk. A gamble has a high probability of loss. A calculated risk has a much higher probability of a positive outcome. Knowing the difference is essential to our success.


To make successful decisions and take positive action we must be in the realistic present. Emotional decision making can be lethal when governed by unexamined personal weaknesses and wounds from childhood. Finding and resolving old patterns of emotional highs and lows increases our ability to make a calculated risk. Even if old patterns are not resolved, acknowledging them and setting them aside during decision making can create better chances for being a winner.


Here is a comparison check list of traits and tendencies for gamblers and calculated risk takers.

Women Togel Hongkong Poker Players Step Into The Spotlight



There is no reason for women not to be able to compete on equal footing against men playing a game that requires brains and not brawn. Several Togel Hongkong women are among the top players in the game today, including Cat Hulbert and Barbara Enright, who has a trio of World Series of Poker championship gold bracelets adorning her wrist and the distinction of being the first woman poker player ever to make the final table at the World Series of Poker main event.


Even so, the popularity of poker as Togel Hongkong television entertainment has reached such heights that Binion’s Horseshoe Casino & Hotel in downtown Las Vegas has announced it will be the site of the inaugural Women’ Poker Club Showdown Tournament September 9 through 11.


The Women’ Poker Club (WPC) lists 700 members among its ranks. Many women players who find live poker room play intimidating and unfriendly have found online casinos to be a suitable alternative for their passion. For some, the upcoming Las Vegas tournament will be their first experience in a “brink and mortar” environment.


“Many men seem to feel that women are easy targets at the poker table,” said Maryanne Morrison, president of the WPC. “Yet our WPC tournaments have proved tougher competition than most mixed events I have participated in. Women are outstanding contenders in this sport.”


The main event at Togel Hongkong Binion’s will be a No Limit Texas Hold’em Tournament on Saturday, September 11. The buy-in of $100 plus $25 will create a prize pool estimated at over $10,000.


“It will be an exhilarating three days, with optional poker classes and social events built into the tournament agenda,” Morrison said. “Many Togel Hongkong members know each other from playing online and sharing strategy …

5 Tips For Winning At Video Casino Extra Poker



Video Poker combines both Luck and skill. The luck part is the cards that are randomly dealt to the player. The skill part encompasses much more then simply knowing what to hold and what to fold. In this article we’ll discuss some of the things every video poker player should be doing, regardless of their game play strategy.


  1. Only Play At Full Pay Machines


One of the smartest things any potential video poker player can do is to check the payout schedule before he or she starts playing. The payout Casino Extra schedule tells you how much you’ll be paid for each winning hand. In a Jacks or Better Video Poker game 9/6 is considered full pay. That simply means that 9 coins are paid out for a Full House and 6 coins are paid out for a Flush. Many casinos pay out less then 9/6, meaning that in the long run, you’ll simply win less money.


  1. Always Play Max Coins


A Mistake many novice players make is to play fewer coins, thinking this will keep them in the game longer. The problem with that theory is many machines will give you proportionately more coins for hitting a Royal Flush with max coins then they will for hitting with less then the max. If you’re worried about going through your bankroll too Casino Extra quickly, play at a low coin size. Or, if you’re really not sure how to play, us a play for free version of the game until you’ve gotten your feet wet.


  1. Plan How Much You’re Willing To Lose –And Stick To It.


There is a lot of luck involved in winning Video Poker. Unfortunately, too many players keep pumping coins into the machine, thinking their luck is bound …

‘Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles’ DVD review

Over the past couple of years we’ve been treated to some amazing Lego Star Wars treats on television (The Padawan Menace and The Empire Strikes Out) and so comes this collection of the first two episodes from the new series, The Yoda Chronicles.

Fans of the previous two specials will be glad to hear that The Simpsons writer Michael Price, who penned the aforementioned instalments, has also written these little beauties.

These stories focus on, as the title may suggest, Yoda and find the little green one up against a new, dark force as Kaiburr crystals are stolen from lightsabers to produce a Sith-enhanced Clone Trooper. Old skool fans will be impressed to see that the Kaiburr crystal gets a mention and plays such a big part in the story (initially part of the original Star Wars screenplay).

The first episode, ‘The Phantom Clone’, sets up the premise whilst the second, ‘Menace of the Sith’, finds the Sith-enhanced Clone Trooper not too happy with being either a Sith or a Jedi, determined to make his own way in life. But don’t think that the plot gets in the way of humour – you’ll find both eps bursting with laughs.

There are numerous, very knowing, and quite surprising digs at the movies: Anakin Skywalker is a “great Jedi but not a very good actor”; a neat origin gag about General Grievous and his coughing; and the continuing inability of the Jedi to notice that Palpatine and Sidious were the same person (sorry, spoilers if you haven’t seen Revenge of the Sith).

But it’s Yoda himself that attracts the most guffaws as his speech pattern is wonderfully toyed with. It’s been done many times before, and by lesser talented hacks, but Price is a master at getting laugh …

‘Horrible Histories’ Series 5 DVD review

CBBC’s Horrible Histories returns for a final series. It’s still very good, bowing out while the quality is still high and with the cast moving onto new things (The Wrong MansYonderland).

As well as being educational, and 99.9% historically accurate, it also never overestimates the capability of a well-pulled face, silly voice or a rat in a hat to make you laugh. The writing, acting and music work on several levels, with subtle jokes for the kids, fart jokes for everyone and Morrissey references for the parents.

By this stage, it’s very consistent. Most sketches garner a laugh, and by now the appearance of Charles II, Death and Henry VIII are comedy shorthands.

It’s reminiscent of The Day Today in terms of replicating televisual styles, as historical events are inserted into contemporary genres. Behind the scenes there are some names with impressive credits, ranging back to Alas Smith and JonesThe Mary Whitehouse Experience and The Office. The look of the show is also deserving of praise, from cinematography to costume to set dressing.

Another reason it works so well is the way it’s both incredibly silly and gleefully unsympathetic at times. While there are celebrations of figures such as Rosa Parks, there’s more about revelling in the stupidity of the past. Even Archimedes is portrayed as a bumptious genius, and the Titanic sketch is very funny, but incredibly bleak.

Still, at least no-one can claim ‘Too soon’.…

‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ DVD review

When Nip/Tuck creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s American Horror Story first surfaced a couple of years ago, it proved to be a high camp, deliciously OTT small screen take on classic horror movie conventions.

This second installment ups the ante significantly, with the action transported to a 1960s US asylum and the general atrocities you might imagine could go on there.

Reuniting some of the cast of the first season’s haunted house adventures

, though with each actor playing a different role, we see Jessica Lange preposterous as ever as Briarcliff Mental Institution’s authoritarian senior nun, Sister Jude, who is charged with overseeing the recuperation of accused killer Kit (Evan Peters), lesbian journalist Lana Winters (Sarah Paulson) and axe murderer Grace Bertrand (Lizzie Brochere).

Along the way, we encounter Zachary Quinto, returning as the enigmatic Dr Thredson, alongside new recruits Joseph Fiennes as the Institution’s troubled Monsignor and the great James Cromwell as Dr Arden, who may or may not be an escaped Nazi war criminal.

As brutal as the first outing, Asylum pushes the boundaries of television censorship with often unrelentingly grim depictions of torture and savagery. Still, this is made extremely palatable by an excellent ensemble cast throwing themselves into the sometimes almost cartoon caricature roles. With supporting turns from a brilliantly (literally) devil-may-care Lily Rabe as the possessed Sister Mary Eunice and the perfectly cast Chloe Sevigny as a doomed nymphomaniac, it’s the performances which really mark this out as great TV.

A few problems do arise, though. Occasionally, shaky writing and melodramatic silliness do take over as plot contrivances serve to confuse in a badly-written, rather than deliberately mad-ass David Lynch way, making a few moments which should have been gloriously out-there just a bit underwhelming. Still, with guest writers including The X Files’ …
