Sometime being short stacked makes you wary and careful of your betting and gives you time to make strategic plays and teach you patients as well.

It might be true if you are with a table full of beginners or people who are playing poker for the first time. But if you are able to get a full grip of what poker really is you will see that being short stacked has no difference in playing big stacked – except for the bullying of course.
The good thing about being short stacked is that players will treat you as nobody, well at least sometimes. When you rise, your opponents have a big chance of calling your bet. This is good timing especially if you have a sure winning hand. You can employ other strategies such as the check raise to lure your opponent to calling you raises, taking the pot in the end.
Being short stacked requires a lot of reading, you must read your opponent’s emotions, guess their cards, see if they will call your bet, etc. It is recommended that you play tight when you are short on chips. Only play those cards that you have a very good chance of getting the pot or stealing the blinds.

*Places to go and Play Pai Gow Poker
One of the games in the casino that is tagged as a poker game but has originated in Asia is Pai Gow Poker. In this game, there are seven cards being dealt and it is governed by a specific set of rules. Both the person playing as well as the person dealing needs to have both a five card hand and a two card hand each. In order to win, the five card hand and two card hand both need a higher rank and the comparison is based on normal poker rankings.
In most online casino games it is only a matter of determining how much of a bet you want to place. This game not only involves putting on a bet and waiting to win. A player needs skill and learns how to strike a balance between both two and five hands so he can make the most of the chance to win. Barring that, he can aim for getting one of the hands at least. Pai Gow Poker can be found in almost all software that has online gaming. It always goes together with the casino game suites. It has also become popular to casino players due to the expertise needed to play the game. It may of even have surpassed the popularity of traditional casino games like baccarat or roulette. The question is where to go in order to play Pai Gow Poker, what is the best online site?
There are a number of online gaming software providers that offer Pai Gow Poker and each has their own promotions and bonuses offered for one reason or another. The players have to learn to choose between these numerous online gaming providers and determine which one will give them the best winnings. They have to options to register only at a certain online casino or register to different ones and have a choice of where to play at any given time. If you are registered to just one online casino, then you are limited to playing only at that site versus having a choice of different sites.
Although the rules and payouts for online Pai Gow Poker are mostly the same in all online casino sites, there are little distinctions that are not immediately noticeable. Some features are available to certain sites but not to others. One if these is called House Way. This is the ability of the software itself to split a player’s cards into two hands instead of the player doing it. Just like everything else, using House Way will give both good and bad results. But it is an important factor to keep in mind when choosing which online gaming casino to use. The good thing about House Way is it helps someone who is new to the game by providing the best way possible to split the cards. The bad thing is for people who are experts at the game and is playing it because they wanted to pit their skills with the software; the House Way removes the part where skill is needed. That is a big discouragement for talented players. But then, this feature is only an option and not a requirement. A player can maximize the use of the feature by mentally doing it first so he can use his expertise and then letting House Way do it for him. That will give him an idea of how good he is compared to the software.
There is a 5% commission for every winning in Pai Gow Poker. A $2 win will get a payout of $1.90. Some online casinos though have a minimum built in commission amount like 25 cents which is in a $1 win means 25%. They make up for it by getting the players to bet a minimum of $5 as a requirement.
Therefore players should look for online casinos for Pai Gow Poker that has House Way but does not have a minimum commission requirement.

The Quicksand in Gambling
*Magic Three Card Poker
Are you a smart gambler and you desire to play two games in one? Then the Three Card Poker offers you the rare opportunity. It is real that this is a two in one occurrence. How is it? Three almost tiny cards and two games in hands. This is heaven for a gambler. So let’s quickly get down to business and explore Three Card Poker.
Three Card Poker exposes you to two options of betting: “Ante and Raise” which is formally referred to as “Ante and Play”. The gain of this is that you can outdo the dealer using three consecutive poker values on the three cards.
“Pairplus” aka “Pair Plus” hinges on the wager that your three cards may have a value that is higher than a pair or settle at a pair at least. Apart from being simple in style, three card poker is a game of utilizing socialization because there are no opponents as such.
Let’s talk about the betting circles. There exist three betting circles in Three Card Poker. From the bottom we have two circles that belong to the Ante and Play. The top circle then belongs to the Pair Plus stage. With this unique feature a player can decide to play a single part of the game or both. In order to play both games you have to bet in both the Pair Plus circle and ante circle before commencement of the game.
At the start of the game, the dealer passes the set of three cards to the participants. Depending on how good the cards are looking, you can decide to opt out of the game aka “fold out” or proceed to bet in the circle. If a player does not fold out, the dealer is at liberty to reveal their hand.
Winning the game is achieved by having a better hand than the dealer. The dealer carries the day if he is in possession of a Queen or higher. Failure on the part of the dealer means that a refund of the bet is given together with an even amount on the Ante circle. The worst case is when the dealer carries the day. In such a case you lose both the play bet and the Ante. The win-win scenario is when a tie arises. This means that the dealer automatically loses. Why this way? The presence of three cards means that Three Card Poker is played with different hands. A Straight flush arises when three cards in sequence arise. This does not depend on the suit. When the cards are from the same suit then a Flush arises. The Pair and the High card follow the list at the bottom respectively.
The other play type is the pair plus which requires any pair or higher to outdo the dealer. Higher payouts in this play arise from better hands. For example, a bet of $10 magically turns into $400. The case of a Pair may generate even more currency.
The bonus stage forms the last play. A funny characteristic of a “True bonus” is that you don’t have to input more money on this bet. Your struggle should be to get a Straight, a Straight flush and extra payout will be yours. Better payouts accompany better hands is the overriding statement in this stage.
Is it not a pretty game? A whole world of winning opportunities. Why don’t you bet yourself against the whole house and not only a single table?
