Poker is America’s national card game, and its popularity continues to grow. Nationwide, you can find a game in progress everywhere. If you want to play, you can find poker games on replicas of 19th century riverboats or on Native American tribal lands. You can play poker at home with the family or online with opponents from around the world. Like bowling and billiards before it, poker has moved out from under the seedier side of its roots and is flowering in the sunshine. Maybe you’ve never played poker before and you don’t even know what a full house is. Poker For Dummies covers the basics. Or perhaps you've played for years, but you just don’t know how to win. This handy guide will help you walk away from the poker table with winnings, not lint, in your pockets. If you’re a poker expert, you still can benefit – some of the suggestions may surprise you, and you can certainly learn from the anecdotes from professional players like T.J. Cloutier and Stu Unger. Know what it takes to start winning hand after hand by exploring strategy; getting to know antes and betting structure; knowing your opponents, and understanding the odds. Poker For Dummies also covers the following topics and more: Poker games such as Seven-Card Stud, Omaha, and Texas Hold'em Setting up a game at home Playing in a casino: Do's and don'ts Improving your play with Internet and video poker Deciphering poker sayings and slang Ten ways to read your opponent's body language Playing in poker tournaments Money management and recordkeeping Knowing when and how to bluff Poker looks like such a simple game. Anyone, it seems, can play it well – but that's far from the truth. Learning the rules can be quick work, but becoming a winning player takes considerably longer. Still, anyone willing to make the effort can become a good player. You can succeed in poker the way you succeed in life: by facing it squarely, getting up earlier than the next person, and working harder and smarter than the competition. Foreword by Chris Moneymaker, 2003 World Series of Poker Champion.

It takes a special book to take a player to the next level, and this is that book. --Amy Calistri, Poker School Online While other highly touted books on hold'em poker offer enough tips to turn a committed beginner into a moderately successful player, none offers the strategies needed to turn an experienced player into a consistent winner--until now. This guide even goes one step further by exposing exactly what the pros don't want you to know. "My only worry is that they have given away too much information." --Matt Lessinger, author of The Book of Bluffs Revealed within these pages are the actual techniques--equally effective for virtually all poker games--that professional gamblers use to win consistently. You'll find out how to quickly recognize and capitalize on betting patterns, how to develop a table image that pays big dividends, advanced bank management techniques, and why the cards you hold are often less important than the way you play them, plus: * Why folding more can lead to winning more * How betting limits dramatically impact the way you should play your hands * Why women have an innate edge * Telltale signs to look for when choosing a casino table * Why it's smarter to be the one who bets and not the sucker who calls "Easy to understand, helpful, and fun to read." --Dave Scharf, author of Winning at Poker Take that next step--armed with the secrets of the pros! A popular columnist for several magazines, including Bluff and Fifth Street, the newspaper The Nevada Sunday, as well as the author of seven top-selling books on poker, Lou Krieger is one of gaming's biggest names. In 2000, he was dubbed "one of the most influential gaming writers of the past hundred years" by Casino Journal--an honor bestowed on only four others worldwide. Sheree Bykofsky has been the winner or first runner-up in hundreds of poker tournaments, both in casinos and online, and won a seat as a participant in the 2004 World Series of Poker. She is also a literary agent and the author of more than twenty books, as well as countless articles on a variety of subjects, which have appeared in major magazines and newspapers.

It’s becoming almost as big as baseball, football, hockey, and other sporting events. Television has increased its popularity. With the Internet, it’s coming into our homes at a lightning fast rate. The rage that’s sweeping the nation – poker! Although the game has been around for years played in family recreation rooms, smoky bars, casinos, and even retirement homes, these days, poker has become the game of choice for hundreds of thousands of people. Family game night used to mean getting out the Monopoly board and battling over Park Place and Broadway. Now, family game night is more likely to be characterized by breaking out the poker chips and battling each other for the best hands. More and more people are talking about their bad beats, their great hands, and their prowess for play. Popular on college campuses, fraternal clubs, and even retirement homes, poker has become our new game of chance, and our new game of choice. What has led to the rise of this game? Most likely, it has been television and the media. On any given evening, the average person can flip on the TV set and find a poker game being aired. The World Series of Poker, Celebrity Poker Showdown, and Ultimate Poker Showdown are rising in the ratings as we tune in to see professionals battle it out and compare our play to theirs. Nearly every home these days has at least one computer. The Internet has become our lifeline, in ways, for information, contact with the outside world, and – yes – our portal to the world of poker beyond our kitchen table. Now ordinary people can log on and play poker with people other than our parents, kids, and friends. Many professional players sponsor online website where they are required to play allowing Average Joe to match his poker skills with the likes of Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson. Perhaps the biggest rise in poker popularity – specifically online poker – stems from one man’s $40 online buy-in leading to the Cinderella story of the industry. Chris Moneymaker qualified for The World Series of Poker main event through a small buy-in satellite event at Poker Stars. At the Series, he outlasted a field of 839 entrants – the largest in World Series of Poker history at the time. He pitted heads against some of the most well-known poker professionals in the world – and won! Moneymaker’s first-place finish netted him $2.5 million dollars, which wasn’t bad considering it was his first live tournament. Many people looked at Moneymaker’s win as monumental. After all, he was just an average guy. He could be anyone’s next door neighbor or co-worker, and he went up against the pros and won. Chris Moneymaker opened the door for everyday people to dream about being the next professional poker player. In fact, the 2004 World Series featured triple the number of players over the 2003 turnout. At least four players in the WSOP final table won their entry through an online card room. Like Moneymaker, 2004 winner Greg “Fossil man” Raymer also won his entry at the Poker Stars online card room. There are a myriad of tips and tricks for playing the game of poker. Everyone seems to have an opinion on the best way to play the game. True, poker is a game of chance, and many would argue that there really is no secret to winning the game. However, there is a best way to play. As Kenny Rogers sang in “The Gambler”, you’ve got to know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em. Know when to walk away, and know when to run. There are many variations on the game of poker, but the one most popular today has got to be Texas Hold ‘Em. It’s a relatively simple game, but like all poker, it can change with the deal of every card. In this book, we’ll explore different ways to play the game online to maximize on your buy-in. We’ll touch on tournaments as well. Online poker can be fun and even profitable when you play smart and follow the advice of those in the know. Whether you’re playing for fun or for money, the game can easily become an obsession, so we’ve also given you information about getting help with a gambling problem. We won’t make you a professional – that’s up to you! But we will try to give you some food for thought when the cards are dealt and it’s time to bet. So, let’s talk poker! Table of contents Introduction. Chapter 1 – History of Poker Chapter 2 - History of Online Poker Chapter 3 - Poker 101 Poker Vocabulary Chapter 4 - Playing Texas Hold ‘Em Chapter 5 - Position Chapter 6 - Pot Odds and “OUTS” Chapter 7 - Playing the Flop Chapter 8 - Playing the River Chapter 9 - Betting Chapter 10 - Strategies Chapter 11 - Tells Chapter 12 - Bluffing Chapter 13 - Playing Multi-Table Tournaments Chapter 14 - Playing Sit and Go’s Chapter 15 - Limit Games Chapter 16 - Some Things to Keep in Mind Chapter 17 - A Word about Addiction Conclusion
