    Just remember... dealer holds at 17, but if he's showing a face or 10 and you're holding 15 or less, hit.

      When you get 2-4, even if it's off-suit, all in. Unbeatable hand.

        Don't you mean ESPECIALLY if its off-suit?

        And 2-7 offsuit > 2-4 offsuit

        It's for exactly the reasons some have stated above.

        In a real money game, two pair can win the pot. In a play money game, it's straights, flushes, houses or better.

        Because no one folds.
        Yeah I agree, it is tough because nobody folds preflop on the small tables... but in the bigger tables at least it gets a little tighter... with only half the table in each flop... and in tourneys its a lot better, especially the big ones.

        I don't think he needs to worry about coercing people to call him in play money games lol.. they don't even notice when a certain person is playing tight... its just a bunch of turds going all in every other hand.

        If you want to win, I will tell you right now how you can always win at poker, regardless of what the math is, regardless of how bad you are, regardless of how unlucky you are.

        Likewise, if you do not do this, I don't care how good you are, how lucky you are, or how well you can read anyone else in the world at a table - you will eventually lose.


        There is a way to ensure that you NEVER lose at poker, and that you always win.


        Ready?


        "Learn to manage your bankroll."


        Yes, that's it. I don't care how bad you are at poker, if you learn to manage a bankroll you will eventually be successful.

        I also don't care how good you are at poker. If you do not learn to manage a bankroll, you will eventually fail.

        Period. Absolutely. No question about it.


        "Bankroll management."

        Learn it - and you'll never be "bad" again.
        Well, you can still be bad... I once got 8 pocket aces in 3 hours at the casino.... lost all 8... and thats with raising preflop sometimes.

        I've only played poker at the casino twice and I won $100 each time, but it was limit which sucks.

          Limit is an entirely different game. It's like comparing Arena Football to the NFL.

          Totally different. I don't know anything about limit poker.

            That's right, that's the best hand in poker, bar none. 2-7 off-suit. I always get luck with 2 of clubs and 7 of hearts.
