Gambling Professionally: 10 Ways to Make a Profit as a Gambler

Gambling professionally probably has at least as much to do with what you don’t do as it does with what you do. The main thing to avoid is playing games where you don’t have an edge.카지노사이트

Some professional gamblers do play games where they don’t have an edge over the house, but they’re the exception to the rule. And even then, they stick with money that ISN’T part of their professional gambling bankroll.

In other words, if a professional gambler plays roulette, he does purely it for entertainment.

When I write a blog post, I usually try to assume that the reader knows little or nothing about the subject. So when I write a post about how professional gamblers only gamble with an edge, my first assumption is that the reader doesn’t know what a mathematical edge is.

That’s why the first point on this list explains the math behind gambling.

Psychology plays a big role in being a professional gambler, too. Depending on the nature of your gambling activities, you might only be making a moderate middle class income. In a lot of cases, professional gamblers sometimes go through dry spells and/or losing streaks. In those cases, they need to have money to live on.

Self-discipline and math skills are just for starters. Once you’ve developed those 2 skills, you still have to achieve a certain amount of proficiency in your chosen activity, regardless of what it is. Being a professional level poker or blackjack players requires skills. It takes a lot of effort to develop those skills.

In fact, most people aren’t cut out to be professional gamblers. For most people, the amount of effort required compared to the rewards aren’t worth it. It’s also hard for most people to divorce themselves from their emotions enough to make the kind of consistent, rational decisions necessary for success.

If you think you might have what it takes, this post provides as good of an introduction to the topic of gambling professionally as any you’ll find.

Gambling : Understand the Math

If you want to gamble professionally, you must have enough knowledge of math to understand some of the intricacies of probability. I can provide an introduction to the subject here, but you might consider buying a textbook or taking a class on the subject.

Probability is the branch of mathematics that deals with predicting the future. It examines in a black and white way the likelihood that certain events will occur. In fact, the word “probability” isn’t just a description of this kind of math. It’s also a description of the likelihood of an event.

The probability that something will happen can always be expressed as a number between 0 and 1. If something will NEVER happen, it has a probability of 0. If something will always happen, it has a probability of 1.

You can express a probability in the following ways:

  • As a fraction
  • As a decimal
  • As a percentage
  • As odds

Here’s an example of a probability expressed as a fraction:

You’re flipping a coin, and you want to express the probability that it will land on heads. You have 2 possible outcomes, each of which is equally as likely as the other. To express that as a fraction, you put the outcome that you’re looking at on top of the fraction (the numerator). You put the total number of possible outcomes on the bottom of the fraction (the denominator).

In this case, the probability is ½.

You have 2 possible outcomes, but only 1 of them is heads.

Here’s an example of that same probability expressed as a decimal:

By the way, this isn’t even a probability problem. It’s just an exercise in converting fractions to decimal. To convert a fraction into a decimal, you just divide the number by the denominator. 1 divided by 2 is 0.5.

You can also convert that into a percentage–which is easy for most people to understand:

To convert a decimal into a percentage, you multiply it by 100 and add the % symbol. 0.5 X 100 = 50%.
This is one of the most popular and easily understood way of expressing a probability. If you watch the weather on the news, you’re probably pretty familiar with this already. When the meteorologist says there’s a 50% chance of rain, you know what she means.

The words “per cent” mean “per 100”, so you can always think of a percentage as the number of times out of 100 that something will occur.

Expressing a probability as odds might be the least intuitive way to express this number, but it can be incredibly useful for gamblers. Instead of comparing the number of ways something can happen with the total number of outcomes, when you’re talking odds, you compare the number of ways something can happen with the number of ways it can’t happen.

In the coin toss example I’ve been using, the odds of getting heads is 1 to 1. You have 1 way to get a heads results, and you have 1 way to NOT get a heads result. This is called even odds.

In gambling situations, you risk money on certain outcomes. If the payoff odds for a bet are better than the odds of winning, you have a profitable situation. (Pros called that +EV, which stands for “positive expected value”.) If the payoff odds for a bet are lower than the odds of winning, you have a losing situation. (This is called -EV, or “negative expected value”.)

If you consistently put yourself in +EV situations, you can expect a profit when gambling. In fact, this is what casinos do all the time. It’s how they stay in business.

The rest of this post is filled with examples of +EV situations, but here’s an easy to understand example that continues from our coin toss discussions:

Suppose you’re convinced that you’re psychic, and you think you can predict with some degree of certainty which way the coin was going to land. In fact, you’re so convinced that you’re willing to bet $2 to win $1.

I’ll ignore any question of the likelihood that you’re really psychic, and I’ll just ask you the following question:
Who, mathematically, has the edge in this situation?

Obviously, it’s the other guy. He only stands to lose $1, and you stand to lose $2, and mathematically speaking, you both have a 50% chance of winning or losing every time.

If you assume 100 coin tosses, and you win 50 times, you’ve won $50. But you’ll also have lost 50 times, losing $100. Your net profit is -$50.

If you want to be a professional gambler, you want to be the guy on the other side of that bet. Pros don’t rely on psychic powers. They rely on math and the long run.

Gambling : Develop Incredible Self-Discipline

Gambling is an emotional activity. All kinds of hormones and chemicals get pumped into your brain when you’re playing a game of chance for money. And once those get started, it’s easy to start making irrational decisions.

Professional gamblers can’t afford to be irrational. If and when they are irrational, they lose money. And losing money is not a way to make a living at any activity.

Here’s an example from the world of poker:

You’ve been playing solid poker for hours. Bet when you have a big hand, and fold when you have lousy cards. Pay attention to position. You know what the other players’ tendencies are.

Over the last 6 hours, you’ve only had 6 hands worth playing, and you went into the pot of every one of them as the favorite to win.

And every single time, your opponent sucked out on you. He started with a worse hand, and then he got lucky.

So you start playing a little more emotionally. You start betting big when you don’t have the cards to justify it. You make raises when you know your opponent probably has a better hand.

This is called “tilt”.

It’s a great way to make a bad situation at the poker table worse.

And good poker players can smell when you’re on tilt. They’ll sit back and wait until they have great cards, then they’ll bust you.

Pro poker players don’t go on tilt. If and when they do, they quit playing until they have their emotions under control again.

Tilt can happen to any gambler playing any game. It takes self-discipline to avoid tilt and/or to change your behavior.

Professional gamblers also need the discipline to be extremely frugal. The nature of gambling is that your expected results happen in the long run. In the short term, anything can (and will) often happen. That’s why some slot machine players sometimes come home winners even though the odds are against them.

In other words, you can be the best at your chosen gambling profession and still have a losing month. In order to continue to pay your bills, you have to be frugal enough to be able to afford these downswings.
I was friends with an online poker professional a few years ago, before Black Friday. He and I discussed what it was like making a living playing poker online.

He told me that 5 months out of 6 he won 5 figures playing poker. But also, 1 month out of 6, he lost 5 figures. He was insanely profitable over time, but he did have 2 months out of the year when he was losing.
I couldn’t get him to tell me his exact numbers, but let’s look at the minimum he’s talking about. If you make $10,000 in profit 10 months out of the year, but you lose $10,000 2 months out of the year, you’re looking at a net profit of $80,000.

But you still have to eat, pay rent, and pay bills during those months when you’re losing money. That takes self-discipline.

Professional gamblers also need the discipline to maintain a bankroll. Recreational gamblers just need to make sure they have enough money to play as long as they want to. Their goal is to get maximum entertainment value for their money.

Professional gamblers need to make sure they maintain enough money that they can stay in action until the long term math kicks in and they start showing a profit. It can be hard to not dip into your gambling bankroll to take a pretty girl out on a date, or to buy tickets to a boxing match you really want to see, or to buy a new television when the pictures goes out on the one you have.

But it’s necessary if you want to stay in business.

A professional gambler is a businessperson. And businesspeople have to maintain enough capital to continue doing business.

It probably also goes without saying that people with impulse control problems—alcoholics, drug addicts, sex addicts, etc.—rarely succeed as professional gamblers.

The reason is simple:

If you can’t control your behavior, you’ll eventually start playing games where you don’t have an edge. You might get lucky for a while, but in the long run, you’ll lose all your money.

Professionals don’t lose money in the long term.

Become a Bookmaker

A bookmaker, if you don’t already know, is someone who takes bets on sports. At your local bar, you’ll often hear this person called “a bookie”. In the United States, it’s illegal to be a bookmaker unless you’re in Nevada and you have a license. That’s a legitimate, if expensive, option, by the way.

But you could consider becoming a bookie and make a living gambling, even if you don’t live in Nevada.
That’s probably not what you had in mind when you thought about betting on sports professionally, but think about who’s most likely to win money in a sports betting situation.

First of all, the bookmaker usually has you place $110 in action in order to win $100. And he’s also set the lines in such a way that he has equal action on both sides of a game.

If you’re a complete novice to sports betting, here’s what all that means:

“Action” is the amount of money you bet. If you have to bet $110 to win $100, that gives the other party an edge, but only if the other party has a 50% chance or better of winning the bet.

That extra $10, by the way, is called “the vigorish”, or “vig”. This is where bookmakers really make their money.

The line is the amount a team has to win by in order to consider it the winning team in a bet. For example, if the line has the Cowboys as a 7 point favorite over the Redskins, that means that the Cowboys have to win by 8 points or more for your bet to pay off. If the Cowboys win by 7 points or less, a bet on the Redskins is considered the winner.

The reason bookmakers create these lines is to create a situation where the bettors feel like they have a 50% chance of winning. If they succeed in this, then they get an equal amount of action on both sides.

Here’s an example:

10 people bet on the Cowboys to beat the spread. 10 people bet on the Redskins. That’s 20 X $1100 in action, or $22,000. Half of those bettors will win, and half of them will lose, because half of them took one side and half took the other. The bookmaker has to pay out $10,000 in winnings. But the bookmaker collects $11,000 in winnings from the other side, so they get $1000 in profit.

The losing side pays off the winning side and then some. That’s how the vig works, and that’s how the bookmaker makes his profit.

Small-time bookmakers might have trouble balancing both sides of a contest in this way unless they have an unusually large client base. Many of them place bets with other bookmakers to cover the action on the other side, too. Of course, they have to pay the other bookmakers vig, too, but it can help them cover the other side of the action.

Becoming a bookmaker involves more than just a willingness to ignore the laws in the United States. (In fact, please don’t construe this post as encouragement to break the law or as legal advice.)
You also have to put together a client base.

For most people, finding clients to bet sports with them isn’t too hard. You need to be reasonably personable, but finding clients is as simple as spending some time at a bar. The kind of bar you troll for clients at can make all the difference, though.

The best bars at which you can find sports bettors are small bars where the barflies drink hard and watch sports. You’ll do especially well with bars which have a crew of regulars in the afternoon before happy hour. Since there are regulars there, if you pick up one client, they’ll often refer you to other clients.

I have a friend who’s a CPA. One of his clients was a bookie. He said that his client never had a problem with the IRS turning him over to the FBI; as long as he was paying his taxes, everything was fine.

So that’s an important point:

Budget your income taxes into the equation.
Getting on the wrong side of the Internet Revenue Service is a big mistake.

Also, if you’re going to run an illegal bookmaking operation, keep a low profile. Don’t set up a website or take sports bets of any kind over the Web. Prosecution is rare with bookmakers, but it does happen. But it’s more likely to happen to high profile bookmakers with a Web presence.

And again, please understand that I’m not offering legal advice. This entire post is meant for entertainment purposes. But I think a lot of these details are instructional and helpful, too.

The bottom line is that it’s a lot more profitable to be the guy taking the bets than it is to be the guy making the bets.

Own a Casino

Another way to profit from gambling is to own the casino. This might be a stretch for a lot of people. There are licensing and financing issues that are beyond most folks’ ability to comprehend, much less implement.
On the other hand, no one in the gambling business is more profitable than the owner of the casino. You’re still gambling, but you’re gambling with the odds in your favor on every bet.

That’s the best way to gamble professionally.

Underground casinos are possible, too, but in most states, it’s a felony to run an illegal gambling operation. Depending on how strict the laws are in your area, you could wind up with some serious probation or even jail time.

That being said, I don’t know how many bars and/or gas stations I’ve visited in the state of Texas which had “8-liners” in them. That’s just another way of saying “slot machine”. Theoretically, these games are legal as long as no one’s winning any cash.
But let’s be realistic.

I was a regular at a bar in Dallas for years. They had a couple of 8-liners in the back near the jukebox. If you won a significant amount of money, you didn’t get paid off in cash by the machine. You told the bartender, and on Friday, you went into the bar to pick up an envelope from the owner. The envelope contained your winnings, in cash.

A buddy of mine won a few hundred dollars one week. He called the bar to talk to the owner on Friday, wanting to ask when he could pick up his envelope. Of course, the owner didn’t know my friend, so he said, “I don’t give envelopes to people I don’t know.”

I had to call the owner and explain to him who my friend was. Once he knew, everything was okay.
That’s a small-time casino, I know, but I can only imagine how much money those 2 machine made. I knew one old carpenter who lost $300 in those machines on Thursday night. He borrowed $200 from me to try to catch up. He lost that, too.

To his credit, he paid me back the following Thursday, as promised. But if he was dropping that kind of money on those machines on a Thursday night, how much money were the other regulars putting in there?
I asked the bartender one night, and he seemed to think they were making at least $1000 per week from each machine on average. That’s not bad for a bar so small that the maximum legal occupancy was 60 people.

On the other hand, had they ever gotten busted, it would have been a drag.

I also had a couple of friends who owned underground poker rooms. I’m lumping this into the professional gambling category even though the house isn’t really gambling in this situation—they just collect a percentage of each pot over a certain amount. That 5% or so that they collect from the pot is called “the rake”. It’s basically the same thing as the house edge for a casino or the vig for a sports book.

I did some of the math once about how much money you could make owning an underground cardroom. I figured that you could rent a decent apartment or office space for $1500 a month. Your electric bill would probably run $200 a month, and you might budget $300 for other miscellaneous expense. I’m not 100% sure, but I think the dealers worked only for tips.

But how much money were you looking at making?
If you have 4 full tables most of the time, you have 36 players. Assuming each table plays about 50 hands per hour, that’s 200 raked hands per hour. If the size of the average pot is $20, that’s $4000 per hour in action, and $200 per hour in profit for the cardroom.

Let’s assume you’re only open 4 nights a week for 8 hours a night. That’s 32 X $200, or $6400 per week. Even if you assume that my assumptions are too optimistic and you divide them by 2, $3200 per week more than covers your expenses and leaves you plenty of profit.

Let’s talk about something else related to owning your own casino—the house edge. Most of the time, when we talk about a casino, we talked about a business that hosts casino games. All of these games pay out at odds less than the games offer.

The difference is the house edge. It’s expressed as a percentage.
The house edge is a long term expectation. We’re talking about a near infinite number of bets. But a casino with a reasonable number of customers nears that long term expectation much faster than an individual playing those casino games.

That’s why casinos are able to continue to get customers. In the short run, players can win.
But in the long run, the casinos inevitably win.
You want to be a professional gambler?
Own a casino.

Here’s an example of the house edge:

  • American roulette has 38 numbers on the wheel. 18 of them are black, and 18 of them are red. 2 of them are green.
  • You can bet on black and get an even money payoff if you win. But you’re not facing 50/50 odds of winning at all.
  • You have 18 possible winning situations and 20 possible losing situations. The total number of possible outcomes is 38. So your odds of winning are 18/38, or 9/19.
  • That means the percentage chance of winning that bet is 47.37%. The probability of losing is 52.63%.
  • Suppose you placed 100 bets and saw mathematically perfect results. If you were betting $1 per bet, you’d win $47.37 and lost $52.63. Your net loss would be $5.26.
  • And that is the house edge for roulette—5.26%.

The house edge varies from game to game, but the house always has an advantage in a casino. (There are exceptions that I cover later in this post.)

Learn to Cheat

This might be the riskiest professional gambling technique on the list. I don’t recommend it, actually, but it’s an option. Cheating is anything that changes the conditions of the game in order to give you an unfair advantage.

Here’s an example:

You have long, sharp fingernails. You’re playing poker. You mark the backs of certain cards with your fingernails.

Now you know when your opponents have certain cards. You have an advantage that the other players don’t have. It’s also unfair, because you have, without their knowledge or consent, changed the conditions of the contest.

Get caught doing this in some poker games and you’re likely to get shot–or at least beat up. The shooter or the guy delivering the butt kicking will also take your money, which is a net loss instead of a win.

That’s not the only way to cheat at gambling. Past posting is one popular way to cheat. That’s just a matter of putting additional money on top of your bet after you’re already aware of its outcome. It’s almost impossible to get away with, and if you get caught doing it, you can face arrest and prosecution.

Any number of card tricks are possible if you’re a card mechanic. You can deal people whatever cards you want without their knowing it. This can obviously create a tremendous advantage for you.

You can play craps with loaded dice. Again, this changes the conditions so that the game of chance is no longer fair.

You could bribe a boxer to take a dive. This is also a way of changing the conditions of a bet and give yourself an unfair advantage. That technique is popular in the movies, by the way, especially in film noir.
Slot machine cheaters have used various devices to rig those games in their favor, too.
Cheating is NOT the same thing as advantage gambling, though.

Count Cards in Blackjack

The best-known advantage gambling technique is card counting in blackjack. “Advantage gambling” just means using legal techniques to put the odds in your favor instead of the house’s. Since counting cards basically just involves thinking about the game while you’re playing, it’s hard to consider it “cheating”—even though the casino tries to imply just that.

This site has lengthy pages about counting cards in the blackjack section, but I’ll explain it in simple terms here, too. I’ll assume you know next to nothing about the game.

Your goal in blackjack is to get as close to 21 without going over and beat the dealer’s total. You start by getting dealt 2 cards. The cards are worth their face value except for the ace and the face cards. The ace is worth 1 or 11, whichever you prefer. The face cards are worth 10.

If you get dealt a “natural” or a “blackjack”, you immediately win a 3 to 2 payout on your bet. So if you bet $100 on a hand, and you get dealt a natural, you immediately win $150.

This bonus payout on that hand is where counting cards can get you an edge. Unlike most gambling games, blackjack has a memory. Here’s what I mean:

When you play roulette, and a ball lands on a particular spot on the wheel, the number of spots remains the same on the next spin. There were 38 slots, and you had a 1/38 probability of getting any particular number.

On the next spin, the odds are the same—1/38.
But in blackjack, every time you deal a card, you change the odds.
There’s an easy way to understand this, too.

You have to be dealt an ace in order to get a natural. If you’re playing with a single deck, and all the aces have been dealt, it’s impossible to get a 2 card total of 21.

On the other hand, if the ratio of 10s and aces in the deck to lower cards in the deck is relatively high, your odds of being dealt a natural increase. This means you’re more likely to get that 3 to 2 payout.

And that’s exactly what card counters do. They track the ratio of high cards to low cards, and when there are a lot of high cards in the deck, they raise the size of their bets in order to get those extra winnings.

Since blackjack has a 0.5% to 1% edge on average, it doesn’t take much of a chance in the odds to turn the game into a positive expectation proposition for the player. By betting the minimum when the deck doesn’t favor you, but betting a lot more when it does, you improve your odds against the casino to a point where you have an edge over the casino of between 0.5% and 1%.

This doesn’t mean much in the short run. You can easily lose a lot of money even when the odds are in your favor. But in the long run, over a lifetime of play, you’ll eventually see a profit.

The expected amount of that profit is easy to calculate, too. You just look at how many bets you place per hour, then you multiply that by the edge you have over the house. You multiply that by your average betting size.

Here’s an example:

You’re playing at a table where you’re getting 50 hands per hour. You’re betting an average of $100 per hand, so you’re putting $5000 per hour into action. If you have an edge over the casino of 1%, you expect to win—in the long run—an average of $50 per hour.

That’s not a great living, by the way. It’s roughly $100,000 a year if you’re playing 40 hours a week. But I don’t know any blackjack players who spend that much time at the table. In fact, I don’t know many people who would WANT to spend that much time playing a card game of any kind (except poker, maybe).

Spending that kind of time at the blackjack table means avoiding heat from the casinos. “Heat” is just a jargon term describing the efforts of a casino to stop players from counting cards. They reserve the right to refuse to let you play blackjack. They even sometimes ban players from a casino altogether.

To avoid heat, most card counters limit the amount of time they spend at a particular table to an hour or less. They also limit the number of times they play at a casino each week to once or twice. They also avoid playing at the casino during the same shifts.

This makes it harder to get in 40 hours a week.

One way card counters make more money is by working in teams. They have various techniques for avoiding heat from the casino. One example is the “big player” strategy.

Most card counters raise and lower their bets based on the count. That’s a big clue to the casino that you’re an advantage player. But blackjack teams will sometimes have a player who just flat bets the entire time he plays, regardless of the count.

But when the count gets really positive, he signals the “big player”. This player is wandering the casino floor, acting drunk (and rich). When he sees this signal, he walks up to the table where the count is positive, and he places a huge bet. Having the increased odds of getting a blackjack on this huge bet gives the entire team an edge.

And that’s just one advanced technique that card counting teams use to get an edge over the casino. Professional blackjack players have a whole list of techniques they can use to get an edge over the house, including things like shuffle tracking and dealer tells.

Master Video Poker

Video poker is my favorite casino game. It looks like a slot machine, but in reality, the games are dramatically different. Here’s why:

Both games involve lining up randomly generated symbols in a line on a computer screen. In slot machine games, these symbols could be anything, but they’re often fruit, bars, playing cards, or novelty symbols tied into the theme of the game. In video poker, they’re always playing cards.

The big difference is that on a slot machine game, you have no way of knowing what the odds are of getting any particular symbol. You know what you get paid off for the various combinations, but without the odds of getting those combinations, you can’t make any kind of judgment about how much of an edge the house has over you.바카라사이트

But on a video poker game, the odds of getting each symbol are the same as they would be if you were playing with a real 52 card deck of cards. (If you’re playing in a game with a joker, it might be a 53 card deck.) This does something for you—it enables you to calculate the payback percentage for the game.

Okay—that’s another new phrase I’ve introduced to you. The “payback percentage” is the flip side of the house edge coin, and it’s used to describe gambling machines. Subtract a game’s house edge from 100%, and you have the amount it’s expected to pay back over time.

For example, if you’re playing a slot machine game with a 4% house edge, the payback percentage is 96%. Of course, slot machines are the ONLY game in the casino where you don’t know what the house edge is.
But that’s the first major difference between slots and video poker. You can calculate a video poker game’s payback percentage and house edge by analyzing the payoffs for each combination (in poker terms, each “hand”) against the odds of getting each hand.

Here’s the other major difference:

On a slot machine game, you don’t really make any decisions of any consequence. You put your money in, spin the reels, and hope for the best. But on a video poker game, once you get your 5 cards, you then decide which cards you’re going to “hold”. The computer then deals your new cards.

This means that there is a mathematically correct way to play every hand. Your goal is to maximize your expected return on every hand.

Here’s an example of how you might need to compare options in a video poker game:

Let’s say you’re dealt a hand that consists off the ace, king, queen, and jack, all of hearts. The 5th card in your hand is the jack of spades.

So you have 2 big options here to choose from. One of them is to hold the pair of jacks. After all, that’s a sure win—but it only pays even odds. You basically have a 100% chance of getting a 1 coin payout. (I’m using a standard Jacks or Better pay table for this example.)

You also have the option of discarding the jack of spades and trying to draw a 10 of hearts. If you get the 10 of hearts, you’ve hit a royal flush, which has the highest payout of any hand in the game. In fact, it pays 800 to 1. But there’s only one card in the deck which will make that hand for you.

What’s the better decision?

To calculate the expected value of a decision, you multiply the probability of winning the bet by the payoff.
We already discussed how you have a 100% chance of winning 1 coin, which is a 1 coin expected value.
But not we have to look at the probability of hitting that royal flush. The odds aren’t great. But we can calculate it accurately.

You only have 1 outcome that will work. But you have 47 possible outcomes total. So the probability of getting the card you want is 1/47, or about 2%. A 2% chance of winning an 800 coin payout is an expected value of 16 coins.

Since 16 coins is better than 1 coin, you would opt for drawing to the royal flush, even though 98% of the time you’ll miss your hand.

Perceptive readers might notice that this is a hugely simplified way of calculating which is the better decision. I didn’t account for the fact that you might also hit 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, full house, a straight, or a flush, depending on which choice you made.
But you get the idea.

Since you can calculate the payback percentage and the correct decision, you can treat video poker a lot like blackjack. It’s a low house edge game, and there are ways of getting an edge over the house.

One way is to just stick with extremely good pay tables. If you can find a “full pay” Deuces Wild video poker game, and if you can play it with perfect strategy, you can achieve a payback percentage of 100.76%. That’s an edge over the house of 0.76%. That’s comparable to what blackjack players achieve.

(A “full pay” video poker pay table is the best possible version of that game—the one with the highest payback percentage. Different casinos and different machines within the same casino might have less optimal pay tables. In fact, they often do.)

Here’s the problem with specializing in full pay Deuces Wild:

There are only a tiny handful of casinos in the country that even make this game available. Most of them are on the Boulder Strip in Las Vegas. And the games are only available in low limits.

How much money could you realistically make playing full pay Deuces Wild professionally?
You always bet 5 coins per hand in video poker, so you’re looking at wagering $1.25 per hand. If you’re a pretty fast player, you can play 600 hands per hour. That’s $750 per hour in action.

If you’re winning 0.76% of that, over a long period of time, you’re looking at averaging $5.70 per hour in winnings. That’s not even minimum wage.

But most video poker players are combining games with a slight negative expectation with other factors to increase their overall payback percentage to over 100%.

Here’s an example of that:

One player might be playing Jacks or Better with a 99.54% payback percentage. But he’s also a member of the rewards club at the casino, so he gets 0.2% back.

But that still doesn’t create a positive expectation. He’s still playing a casino game with a house edge, albeit a small one of just 0.26%.

But this player decides she’s going to only play this game during the triple points promotions. Now she’s getting 0.6%. This gets her a tiny edge over the house, but she’s retired, and she sees it as an opportunity to gamble for free and get cool stuff on her vacation.

Also, she can play for higher stakes. This casino has dollar machines AND $5 machines. So she can bet $25 per hand. That’s $15,000 in action per hour. With an edge over the casino of only slightly more than 0.1%, she’s still making more money per hour–$15 per hour instead of $5.70.

The real video poker pros wait until a progressive jackpot gets big enough that the game has a really high edge for the player. The higher the progressive jackpot gets, the lower the house edge. At a point, it becomes so low that the odds are actually then in the players’ favor.When this happens, advantage gambling teams usually stake out all the seats on those games. When they need a break, someone else from the team will take their spot. When the jackpot is finally won, the team splits the proceeds.

Play Poker at a Professional Level

Betting on sports and playing poker are probably the 2 best ways to become a professional gambler—short of owning your own casino. That’s because these 2 ways are both profitable and reasonably easy to get involved in, at least compared to the other options on this list.

But it’s not as easy to be a long-term winning poker player as you might think. And if you’re playing Texas hold’em, which you probably will be, since it’s the most popular poker game today, you’re dealing with a huge luck factor. In fact, lots of people get on winning streaks in hold’em even though they’re playing terribly. When their long term expectation kicks in, they’re awfully disappointed.

The reason that it’s hard to beat poker is because most of the time you have to not only be better than your opponents, but you have to be better than they are by a certain amount. Most cardrooms take 5% of every pot. So not only do you have to be better than the other players, you have to be far enough ahead of them to make up for the 5% and then some.

Most of the literature I’ve seen about professional poker suggests that you measure your hourly rate in poker in terms of big bets won. The big bet is the number after the / when you’re talking about the game’s limits. For example, if you’re playing in a $5/$10 limit game, you’re looking at your winnings in terms of $10 per hour.

A poker professional can count on a long term winning rate of 1 or 2 big bets per hour. But if you’re playing online exclusively, you can increase that multiple by playing more per hands per hour and by playing at more than one table at a time.

If you’re good enough to win one big bet per hour, and you can manage playing 4 tables at once, you can win 4 big bets per hour.

To make a reasonable living, let’s assume you need to earn at least $10,000 a month. If you specialize in $5/$10 holdem, you need to be able to win 1000 big bets per month. At 4 big bets per hour, that’s 250 hours per month of play. That’s a little over 60 hours a week of play.

Most poker players can’t play for 60 hours a week and maintain any kind of quality of life. So you have to look at ways to increase your hourly earnings.
Do this by playing more tables at once.
You can do this by increasing the amount you win per hour.
You can do this by playing for higher stakes.

Let’s say you’re able to increase all of these factors by 50%. Now you’re playing 6 tables at a time. You’re playing for $7.50/$15. And you’re now winning 1.5 big bets per hour.

You’re now earning $135 or so per hour. To make $10,000 per month, you need to play for 74 hours per month. That’s less than 20 hours a week, and that’s a little more like it.

None of these numbers are exact, either. Your hourly earnings will fluctuate upward and downward over time. The level of competition will improve and get worse. Your energy levels will fluctuate, so you might play more or fewer hours a month.

Might change stakes based on fluctuations in your bankroll. You might find that the competition gets much better at one level compared to another, so you might have to stay at a certain level before moving up. You might never get good enough to move up to the next level.

No limit players, by the way, measure their progress by ROI (return on investment). They look at how much money they’re putting in the pot per hour and what percentage of that they expect to win. They also face higher bankroll fluctuations. But their potential profits are higher.

Tournament players also look at return on investment as their key performance indicator. You might lose 80% of the tournaments in which you play, but you make enough money from the 20% you place in to make up for your losses and more.

If you’re really good and really lucky, you might be able to win the World Series of Poker Main Event. Pull that off, and you’ve made a living for the rest of your life. But even great players know that winning that event is like winning the lottery.

Here’s why:

Let’s say you’re 3 times as good as the average player in the World Series of Poker. There’s a $10,000 entry fee for this tournament. The top prize in 2015 was $7.7 million, and anyone finishing in the final 9 won at least $1 million.

Your odds of being the first place winner would be 1 in 6420 if you were playing with players who were all exactly as good at poker as you are and no better. But since you’re 3 times as good as any of them, your odds of winning first place are 1 in 2140.

That’s still a longshot, but it’s not quite as bad as the lottery.

And you still have a good shot at being in the final 9, too. The odds for that are 9 in 6420, and since you’re 3 times as good as the average player, that’s 27 in 6420. That’s a 1 in 238 chance of winning a million dollars on your $10,000 entry fee.

Your odds of winning anything at all, or at least getting your entry fee back, are actually quite good in this scenario. The top 1000 places paid out, which is 1000 out of 6420, or roughly 1 in 6.4. If you’re 3 times better than your opponents, you have an almost 50% chance of finishing in the money and at least making a small profit.

Here’s the trick though:

Getting to a point where you’re that much better than the average player at those stakes takes a lot of time, effort, talent, and smarts.

Poker isn’t a physical activity, but you can still consider it a sport. Some people are talented at sports, but some people just don’t have what it takes to excel.

Think about it this way:

No matter how much you practice, you’ll probably never be as good a quarterback as Peyton Manning. He just has more innate talent than you do. (And I apologize to anyone reading this who’s the exception to the rule, but what are the odds of that?)

The same might hold true for poker. Many players, no matter how much they practice, will never have enough talent to compete with the likes of Doyle Brunson, Phil Hellmuth, or Daniel Negreanu.

This doesn’t mean you should avoid the Main Event at the World Series of Poker. It’s still a game of chance. Even if you’re only half as good as the other players, you still have a chance of coming out the winner. It’s just that your chances are 1 in 12,000 instead of 1 in 6000.

How do you get good at poker?

The same way you get to Carnegie Hall—practice, practice, practice.
I suggest starting by playing online at some of the free games. Read a basic book about the game you’re most interested in—probably Texas hold’em, since that’s where most of the action is.

As soon as you can, move up to real money games. The way people play differs dramatically even when there’s only a tiny amount of money on the line. Even $0.01/$0.02 games see better hands winning the pots and more people folding.

As you start winning consistently, you can go up in stakes. You should go up in stakes as soon as you have a large enough bankroll to avoid going broke at the next level.

You should also read books about the game. Some of the better ones include Super/System, which was edited (and partially written by) Doyle Brunson, Small Stakes Holdem by Ed Miller, and The Theory of Poker by David Sklansky. In fact, The Theory of Poker is essential reading for anyone who wants to seriously learn how to win at the game in the long run.

Play Daily Fantasy Sports

Daily fantasy sports were started by a lot of the people who were involved in the online poker industry. The launch of these games was directly a result of the passage of UIGEA (The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act). That law had a specific exemption built into it for fantasy sports. So the poker moguls put their heads together and figured out that they could shorten the time frame for the fantasy sports contests and treat them just like poker tournaments in terms of buy-ins and payout structures.

Smart players who know a lot about sports are able to put together teams that are more likely to win. And if you can beat the other players often enough to overcome the vig or the rake, then you can make a profit playing daily fantasy sports.

Of course, I should explain how the vig works in fantasy sports. If you’ve played poker online, you’re probably familiar with the structure already.

To enter a daily fantasy sports league, you pay an entry fee of something like $10 + $1 or $20 + $2. The first number is the amount of money that you’re contributing to the prize pool. The 2nd number is a fee that you’re paying to the house. If you’re in a $10 + $1 tournament with 10 players total, the prize pool is $100. The other $10 in entry fees goes to the house.

In order for you to show a positive ROI playing daily fantasy sports, you have to be able to win often enough to compensate for the additional feels. The reasons why should be obvious.

Suppose you are just as good as everyone else in a daily fantasy contest. If there were 10 contestants, you’d be expected to win once out of every 10 times. So you’d win $100 over 10 contests, which is $10 per contest. But you’d still have lost another $10 in entry fees.

On the other hand, if you won twice, you’d have won $200, but you’d still have paid $10 in entry fees.
So the better your chances of winning are compared to the other players, the more likely you are to be able to beat the vig.

The intricacies of winning these daily fantasy contests are many. You have to decide which kinds of tournaments you prefer—the 50/50 tournaments and the ones with the big prize pools. Different strategies are rewarded in each type of tournament.

If you’re playing the 50/50 tournaments, which are also called “cash games”, you’re looking at minimizing volatility. You want dependable players. You want a balanced team that you’re certain is going to outscore the average team, but they don’t have to outscore the team by much.

In this type of contest, half the field gets paid—the top half. So you don’t get any more money from being the #1 point-scorer than you would if you were #49 or #50 in a 100 entrant tournament. So you’re looking to put together a fantasy team that has an 80% chance of scoring 120 points, not one that has a 35% chance of scoring 180 points.

The other type of daily fantasy sports contest you can participate in is called a tournament. In this type of content, the top players get paid more based on how they placed. For example, the winner of the tournament might get 30% of the entire prize pool. 2nd place might get 20%. The other top 18 players out of 100 might get the rest.

In this case, you have to go big or go home. You have to embrace volatility. And you need a team that’s potentially going to score more points than any other team. In this case, you’d much rather have the team with the 30% chance of scoring 180 points.

Gambling : Bet on Sports

In the book How to Make $100,000 a Year Gambling, the authors suggest that a talented sports bettor can make more profit than any other kind of gambler. Of course, if you want to win on this side of the equation, you have to be able to win often enough to beat the vig. This means winning at least 52% or so of your bets—just to break even. Every percentage point you can increase your winning percentage by results in a higher ROI for you.

Let’s look at the math behind that for a minute:

100 sports bets in a row, and you win 55% of them, betting $110 on every game. You win 55 X $100, or $5500. You lose 45 X $110, or $4950. Your profit is $5500 – $4950, or $550.Most sports bettors measure their performance based on ROI (return on investment). You calculate that by dividing your winnings (or losses—you can have a negative ROI) by the amount of money you wagered.

In this case, with a 55% winning percentage, you profited $550 on an $11,000 investment. That’s a 5.5% ROI, which sounds small, but it’s actually not bad at all. Many people are happy to see that kind of return on an annual basis. In fact, you’re lucky to find a savings account that pays 1% per year these days.

One way to think of this ROI is as interest on your money. When you’re talking about interest, you can think about compound interest, which means that you’re making money based on the new total.

Here’s how that works:

You bet that $11,000 over the course of a month. Next month, you have $11,550 to bet, so now you bet $115.50 per game. Now you’re winning slightly more on your bets. (You don’t have to bet in multiples of $110, even though that’s what the ratio of your winnings is based on.) This month, you lose $5197.50. You win $5775. Your profit this month is $577.50.

The rule of 72 says that you can divide the interest rate you’re earning into 72 to find out how long it will take you to double your money. If you’re earning 5.5% on your money, you’ll double your money every 13.1 periods. So in a little over a year, your bankroll will increase to $22,000.

Now that you have a bankroll that’s twice the size of the previous year, your earnings will double, too. Now you’re profiting $1100 a month instead of $550.

And obviously, if you’re starting with a larger bankroll, you can see greater monthly earnings. Let’s say you’re able to put $110,000 into action every month instead of $11,000. You’re earning $5000 a month, which is enough to live on. And in a year, you can double that to $10,000 a month, which is a decent living by most standards.

But how do you get good enough to achieve a 55% win rate. After all, the handicappers who work for the sports books are experts. Their lines are going to be as close to accurate as you can imagine.

You can look for patterns to exploit, but these patterns don’t last forever. Think of sports betting as a marketplace. As the marketplace matures, it becomes more efficient. This means that yesterday’s betting systems won’t work today.

One tactic that seems to work well over time is called “fading the public”, or betting against the public.

How does this work?

You watch for changes in the line. When the line changes, it indicates that the general public is betting heavily in one direction. The sports books change the lines in order to stimulate action on the other side of the event. If the original line was correct, and it usually is, betting against the public is a positive EV move.

It’s always a good idea to bet against the general public, because the general public doesn’t really know what it’s doing it. So if the line is improving on one side, bet with where the line is improving.

Here’s an example:

The Cowboys are playing the Redskins, and the Cowboys are the favorites by 7 points. The bookmakers wind up with 70% of their action on the Cowboys and 30% of their action on the Redskins. They want to get more money on the Redskins.

So the bookmakers make the Cowboys a 7.5 point favorite instead. That movement of the line is a clue that you should bet on the Redskins. Often the line will have to move several times in order to get the money even on both sides. The sharps I know bet more every time the line moves. (A “sharp” is a knowledgeable sports bettor who wins more often than he loses.)

Fading the public is just one way of getting an edge in sports betting. Following the news more closely than your competitors is another way of getting an edge. If you can find out information that might affect the outcome of a game sooner than the general public, you can get an edge that way, too. The point spreads will adjust based on the new information, but you’ll have made your bet before that happened, giving you an edge.


Making a living as a gambler isn’t the easiest thing to do. It’s not nearly as glamorous or as exciting as you might think, either. But it is something you can pull off, especially if you’re willing to work hard for it.

The first steps you need to take are learning the math behind gambling and probability. Follow that up with developing the self-discipline to set and achieve your financial goals. Without those 2 factors in place, you won’t be able to succeed as a professional gambler.

Then you need to decide which approach to gambling for a living that you want to take. You’re not limited to the 10 suggestions on this page, either. You might be able to figure out other ways to get an edge. In fact, the only way you can make a profit in the long run is to figure out how to get a consistent mathematical edge. Once you’ve done that, it’s just a matter of being disciplined in your approach.온라인카지노

2023 Australian Open Women’s Singles Futures Betting Odds and Picks

Betting we looked at the early opening Futures odds for the 2023 ATP Australian Open, so now let’s look at the numbers for the numbers Women’s Singles market for the 111th Australian Open from Melbourne Park (Hard) set for January 16 through January 29.카지노사이트

The first Grand Slam Tournament of the year, the 2023 Australian Open will again be covered on TV and Digital devices by ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN+ and ABC with ESPN providing the coverage for both the 2023 Australian Open Men’s and Women’s Finals.

Last year in the 2021 Australian Open Women’s Singles Finals, Australian native Ashleigh Barty beat Danielle Collins in straight sets, 6-3, 7-5, and became the first Australian player to win the event since Chris O’Neill over American Betsy Nagelsen back in 1978.

Champ Barty, Venus Likely Not in 2022 AO Bracket Betting

After receiving her AO trophy at Rod Laver Arena from fellow Aussie icon Evonnne Goolagong Cawley, the 26-year-old Barty then promptly proceeded to retire from Tennis in the following weeks, the second time she has retired from the sport she loves so much.

“Nothing will ever get better than this on a tennis court betting,” said Barty—who was born in Ipswich, Queensland, Australia—about her Australian Open win last January when ultimately announcing her decision to retire.

“Not just that we had won a Grand Slam, it was all the work we had done to get to that point and the memories and experiences we had along the way and how much fun we had in those two weeks at the Australian Open.”

Veteran American sisters Venus and Serena Williams (25/1 to win 2023 Australian Open, BetOnline)—the latter the winner of 23 Majors—are always question marks, but Serena was back training this weekend and is expected to play in Toronto between August 8-14.

The current No.1 player in the WTA Rankings is 21-year-old Poland native Iga Świątek (+250 to win 2023 Australian Open), and she sits almost 2000 points ahead of the No. 2 ranked player, Anett Kotaviett of Estonia (4476) at this particular strange point in time.

Here are Futures betting odds to win the 2023 WTA Australian Open Women’s Singles championship from online sportsbook BetOnline—ranked our No. 1 Tennis Betting Site—and as you can see, Świątek is the oddsmakers favorite to prevail come January.

Swiatek, Halep, Rybakina Best Looks Down Under?

Kazakh phenom Elena Rybakina (12/1 to win 2023 Australian Open) won her first Major this Summer, winning Wimbledon in Jolly Old HotterThan Hell Now England, beating

So looking at Rybakina as a potential foe for favorite and current world No. 1 Świątek is something to ponder Down Under as are potential Iga Świątek +250 and Romanian Simona Halep (12/1) and Rybakina-Halep matchups in Melbourne Park this Winter.

No. 21 ranked Halep is 2-2 in 4 lifetime head-to-head Matches against Świątek, while against Wimbledon winner Rybakina, the 30-year-old Halep has also gone 2-2. Halep is an impressive 31-9 this year while then 23-year-old Rybakina has gone 26-12 and is No. 12.

Rybakina is 10-5 on Hard Courts with Halep is a profitable 15-4 on hard surfaces with Świątek going 46-5 so far in 2022. And against Rybakina, Świątek is 2-2, so there have been no real Trends that have emerged yet when Świątek, Halep, or Rybakina have played.

The final WTA Grand Slam event of 2022, the 2022 US Open is scheduled to start on August 29 and run through September at the UTSA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Queens, New York.

Naomi Osaka (6/1) and No. 2 ranked Anett Kontaveit (14/1) are worth some considerations, but head-to-head vs. Świątek, Halep, and Rybakina, Osaka is 1-1, 0-0, and 0-0 respectively, while Kontaveit has gone 2-3, 1-3, and 0-0 respectively to date.

In short, Świątek and 46-5 record and her 27-match Win Streak which ended at Wimbledon with 3rd Round Loss to Alize Cornet is too hard to ignore, so with Barty retired and Halep maybe the biggest threat, backing hor Pole Świątek is the call here. 온라인카지노

About Mark Magsayo

Mark Magsayo is 27- year-old who has been on the Ring Top 10 Featherweight rankings list for 135 weeks and who like veteran Vergas, hasn’t lost a bout yet, so unless we see a Draw here, one of these fighters is finally going to suffer his first Loss in the square ring.

“Magnifico” Magsayo was born in Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines and he has held the WBC Featherweight title belt since January of 2022 and he is ranked No. 2 by Ring magazine, No. 3 by BoxRec, and No. 3 by TBRB in the Featherweight weight class.

WBC World Featherweight champion Magsayo is 5’6½” (169 cm) and has a 67½” Reach (171 cm), and will have the Age (youth) edge but Mexican sensation Vargas is much taller (5’10½), has the 3-inch Reach advantage (70½”), and will have the crowd in his corner.

About Rey Vargas

Rey Vargas is a 34-year-old Mexican-born professional Boxer and the right-hander has gone unbeaten in his first 35 bouts of his career and who is now facing the biggest fight of his career on Saturday night and hopes he will “Remember the Alamo” in the right way.

Vargas made his Pro debut back in may of 2010 and won the IBF championship in his 11th bout, Vargas won by a KO in 15 of his first 16 fights and was knocked down for the first time by Sylvester Lopez, but came back (obviously) to win that fight.

His last 6 fights have all been Unanimous Decision Wins and with those big Height (4 inches) and Reach (3 inches) edges and the crowd in San Antonio expected to be pulling for him, it’s easy to see why oddsmakers shaded Vargas as the Favorite against the champ.

Why Magsayo Is the Pick Here, How to Approach

This fight seems like another decent chance to back an unbeaten underdog—we nailed the IBF Cruiserweight Championship fight between Mairis Breidis and Jai Opetaia for you here last weekend— in a scheduled 12-rounder that might see a surprise Knockout.

With money possibly pouring in on slight favorite and former Mexican Featherweight champion Vargas, maybe the best betting on Boxing strategy here is to wait until Vargas Opetaina rises 10 cents to -135 or more and then look for Magsayo at a moderate plus.온라인카지노

Monday Night Hockey – Betting Odds and Predictions

Pick the NHL kicks off the week with five games on Monday night to help you ease into the holiday stretch. The league is celebrating it’s anniversary of the first game ever played on December 19, 1917. It was 99 years ago today that the inaugural games were played and the league has come a long way. Let’s set up the matches on this historic night.카지노사이트

Edmonton Oilers at St.Louis Blues The Lines

Edmonton (+126) at St.Louis (-139)

Edmonton (+1.5) at St.Louis (-1.5)
Total – Over/Under

Two teams with almost identical records strive to stay relevant in the West on Monday. The Oilers (16-12-5) skate into St.Louis to battle the Blues (17-11-4) with both teams struggling a bit during their most recent stretch.

Edmonton is coming off a 3-2 win over Tampa Bay, but is still just 4-3-3 in their last ten games. St.Louis meanwhile has fared slightly better with a 5-4-1 record over their last ten, but are coming off a rare loss at home. They let in a whopping six goals against the Blackhawks to drop just their second game in their own building 6-4.

The Oilers offense has been rejuvenated this season. Edmonton is scoring 2.94 goals a game which ranks 7th in the league. They rank one spot better at 6th for their power play performance.

Edmonton is connecting on an excellent 22.22 percent of all power play opportunities and find themselves with the extra attacker 3.27 times a game.

The obvious catalyst for the resurgence in Connor McDavid. McDavid leads the league in points with 39 but has cooled off slightly over the past few games. He has just a two point lead now for tops in the NHL.

Another reason for their strong offense is Leon Draisaitl. Draisaitl has been buried on the third line thanks to Edmonton’s depth cat the centre position, but that hasn’t stopped him from feasting on weaker opposition. He has 14 goals and 14 assists for 28 points this season.

St.Louis has been no slouch with the puck either this season. The Blues are up to 2.84 goals a game and have another young sniper to thank for it.

Vladimir Tarasenko is the aforementioned player who is just two points behind McDavid for the lead league in points. Tarasenko has 15 goals and 22 assists for 37 points this season and the 24-year old Russian continues to be the Blues leader on the offensive side of the puck.

Like Edmonton, St.Louis has a strong power play as well. The Blues succeed on 21.90 percent of their opportunities and get those chances 3.28 times a game. The goals should becoming fast and furious on Monday.

Both teams have defenses that rank below the league average, which is surprising given their positions in the standings. If you had to guess going into the season who would have the stronger defensive unit, most people would pick St.Louis. Most people would be wrong.

The Blues are allowing a shocking 2.91 goals a game despite having some of the strongest defensemen in the league. Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester have combined to go -10 on the ice this season and only Colton Paraynko has a “positive” rating of 0 this season along the blue line.

The Oilers on the other hand are just off the league average, allowing 2.73 goals per contest. Andrej Sekera has been the biggest surprise for Edmonton with 15 points and a +9 rating this season on the ice.

Edmonton also does a good job killing off penalties, shutting down the opposing team’s power play 83,.17 percent of the time.

A strong reason for Edmonton’s defense has been the play of Cam Talbot in net this season. Talbot owns a 15-10-4 record with a .916 save percentage and a 2.54 goals against average.

He’s had a few tough outings during the season, and may find himself over-powered by the Blues’ high-octane offense, but has shown time and time again that he’s capable of some resilient play.

In St.Louis it will be Carter Hutton in net for a rare start after Jake Allen played so poorly against Chicago.

Hutton is just 2-4-1 on the season in nine appearances and has a brutal .889 save percentage with a 2.92 goals against average. It will be a tough spot for a rare start against one of the best offenses in the league.

Key Matchup
Connor McDavid against Vladimir Tarasenko. They’re the number 1 and 2 scoring leaders in the league, what more needs to be said?

After a tough loss at home against the Blackhawks, we don’t see the Blues opening up the first night of a back to back set with a loss against the Oilers.

With that being said, Edmonton is still capable of winning this, and the moneyline just isn’t strong enough to take the Blues. Why not take a chance on the Oilers on the spread given how strong their offense is this season?

Nashville Predators at Philadelphia Flyers The Lines

Nashville (+110) at Philadelphia (-121)

Nashville (+1.5) at Philadelphia (-1.5)
Total – Over/Under

Now that Philadelphia’s incredible win streak is over, we can start analyzing them as a real team, instead of some mystical unbeatable juggernaut. Despite the win streak the Flyers are still just the second Wild Card team in the East, and only own a +6 goal differential on the season.바카라사이트

After a tough loss against Dallas, they’re rewarded with the Predators. Luckily for the Flyers, the Preds continue to struggle despite how good they look on paper. Nashville is just 3-5-2 in their last ten games and a downright awful 3-9-2 away from home.

Key Matchup
Jakub Voracek against P.K. Subban. The Flyers leading scorer has 33 points this season and goes up against one of the most talented defensemen in the NHL.

Teams often struggle to find consistency after going on such a long win streak and finally losing, but with the way Nashville has been playing this season, it doesn’t feel right to take them on the moneyline despite the good odds. Take the Flyers on the moneyline and the Preds on the Spread if you want action on both sides.

Anaheim Ducks at Toronto Maple Leafs The Lines

Anaheim (+111) at Toronto (-123)

Anaheim (+1.5) at Toronto (-1.5)
Total – Over/Under

At first glance, seeing the Ducks getting favorable odds in almost any matchup is awesome, let alone against the struggling Leafs, but look against and you may find some reasons to hesitate.

Toronto is coming off an enormous 2-1 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins and have improved to 4-3-3- in their last ten games. While it’s true they’re still ten points out of a playoff spot, they also haven’t won a single game in the shootout this season, which many argue isn’t a true test of a team’s performance.

They’re capable of scoring at any moment with players like Mitch Marner, Auston Matthews and William Nylander, but have struggled to defend teams at all this season.

The Ducks should be able to take advantage of that defense with their 91 goals this season but have struggled on the road. They’re just 6-7-4 away from home this season.

Key Matchup
Frederik Anderson against his former team. Anderson has the skill set to shut out any team, on any night, it just depends on how his defence plays in front of him. If he can get some quality help, it will be fun to watch him stack the pads against his former team.

As much as we want to take the risky play and bet the Leafs, it just doesn’t make sense with the odds given. Anaheim getting a goal and a half against a bad team just doesn’t happen very often. So take the Ducks on the spread and run.

Detroit Red Wings at Carolina Hurricanes The Lines

Detroit (+128) at Carolina (-141)

Detroit (+1.5) at Carolina (-1.5)
Total – Over/Under

Two evenly matched teams hit the ice in Carolina, but evenly matched isn’t necessarily a good thing at this point in the season. Thanks to Philadelphia’s recent win streak, Carolina and Detroit are both eight and nine points out of a wild card spot in that order.

Both teams are coming off a win however and each have four wins in their last ten games. Tomas Tatar is coming off a hat-trick and maybe his recent offensive play can spark the struggling Wings. In Carolina Sebastian Aho tries to be the spark plug after posting his second multi-point game in December.

Key Matchup
Dylan Larkin against Jeff Skinner. Larkin has been disappointing after his 45 point rookie campaign but capable of gaining momentum at any moment against the always fun to watch Jeff Skinner.

Detroit is 7-5-1 on the road this season and getting a goal and a half on the spread against a similarly weak Hurricanes team. Take the spread all day.

Calgary Flames at Arizona Coyotes The Lines

Calgary (-141) at Arizona (+128)

Calgary (-1.5) at Arizona (+1.5)
Total – Over/Under

Calgary is just 16-15-2 this season, which is a respectable record, but not one you would expect to be good enough for a playoff spot in a talented Western Conference. The thing is, that talented conference has struggled this year,

Every single team outside of the payoffs has a negative goal differential, and Calgary can join that club. The Flames are above .500 despite a goal differential of -11 on the season.

Thankfully for the Flames, they take on a woeful Coyotes club on Monday night. Arizona is a -27 in goal differential on the season and just 6-5-2 at home. The Coyotes have scored just 70 goals on the year and now go up against one of the best defensemen in the league in Mark Giordano

Key Matchup
Johnny Gaudreau against Oliver Edman-Larsson. Two of the youngest and most talented players in the league have struggled this season, but are rounding into form lately. Look out for some burst of speed and highlight reel plays from both.

Calgary on the road are actually better than at home this season with a 9-6-2 record so we wouldn’t blame you for taking the moneyline. The only problem is it doesn’t pay much. With both teams struggling to score this season, why not breathe easy and take the under so you don’t have to cheer for either of these inconsistent teams? 온라인카지노


The Walking Dead: 12 Characters That Died Way Too Soon

If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead and you haven’t seen the entire series, you might want to stop now.카지노사이트

If you stumbled upon this The Walking Dead article because you are just now getting into

AMC’s zombie epic series, ditto.


There are some harsh TWD spoilers coming your way, as season 7 is arriving this weekend and we can’t help

but think of all the past horrors we’ve experienced.

After all, the teaser trailers assure us someone was killed by Negan and we probably need to brace for a whole lot more dyin’.

We’ve seen enough death on this show to last us a lifetime, though.

While it was all fairly warranted and helped piece together a magical story, we can’t help but wonder what

the show would have been like if some characters we allowed to live, or at least had their time on the show prolonged a bit.

For one reason or another, we can across some pretty key characters that we personally felt deserved a little

more air time, or should have perhaps never been killed off on The Walking Dead in the first place.

Without further haste, in anticipation of the next The Walking Dead death,

we look back on the top The Walking Dead characters that arguably died way too soon:

Jacqui (Death: Suicide at the CDC in Season 1 Finale)

Jacqui actually offered very little as a character on The Walking Dead and in turn,

she understandably didn’t last very long on the show.

In fact, she lasted just six episodes, as the first season ended with the CDC blowing up.

The scientist at the CDC basically informed Rick Grimes and the group that there was no reason to fight,

as survival in the new world was impossible.

Rather than risk being eaten alive by zombies or hunted by savages,

Dr. Edwin Jenner gives them an out when the CDC building enters self destruction mode.

Jacqui decides to give up and blows up with the building, which does serve a purposes by offering what the other path gives our characters.

It serves a double purpose as the “out” the majority of our characters denied without knowing that everyone carried the virus.

No one misses Jacqui and she wasn’t a key character, but she also was never allowed the chance to develop into one.

We would have gotten the same effect if just Dr. Jenner stayed and died and perhaps she could have gone on to prove herself a la Carol. We’ll never know.

Dale Horvath (Death: Guts ripped open by zombie and shot by Daryl in Season 2)

This is our first stop at “necessary” The Walking Dead deaths, but we can make a strong argument that

the lovable Dale could/should have lasted a lot longer.

For one, he was a smart guy, he was carrying a gun at the time of his death and frankly,

it didn’t make a ton of sense that his character would go out pursuing strange sounds at night.

Dale probably needed to go, though, for two key reasons: Carl’s character needed to evolve a bit and he

ultimately realizes he’s responsible for Dale’s death, while the arrival of Hershel also gives us one too many old wise men.

Dale was the voice of reason for all of season one and a good part of season two,

but Hershel took that role over and ran with it.

Dale still could have been a useful part of the group, however, and his death could have been delayed

at least until season three.

Shane Walsh (Death: Stabbed by Rick Grimes in Season 2 Finale)

This is the one we have the biggest beef with, as Shane was hands down one of the best characters

The Walking Dead has ever provided us with.

Jon Bernthal’s turn as the best bud that takes care of Rick’s family when left for dead to bitter enemy who

thinks he knows better is truly a fantastic performance.

Obviously the rapid evolution of both Shane’s character and the deterioration of his and Rick’s relationship added to his demise,

but it didn’t have to shake the foundation of the show so quickly.

Later in the series we see people go out on their own and at one point Rick even exiles Carol.

Shane’s death could have been avoided until a later stage, where we could have seen Rick vs. Shane be taken to new heights.

Maybe Shane and Andrea leave together, join up with The Governor and that entire season three (and 4) storyline is even more powerful.

Of course, the season 2 finale of The Walking Dead was what it was because Rick had to kill his best friend

for the betterment of the group.

That’s a huge part of Rick’s character development and we get how that was necessary.

We just hated to see such an awesome TWD character go when it felt like there was more story to work with there.

Merle (Death: Shot by the Governor and then stabbed as a zombie by brother, Daryl)

Are we sad that a racist, sexist is off the show? Not really, but let’s face it, Merle was actually one of the funnest early characters to hate on The Walking Dead.

And as bad as he was, to his core he was never truly evil – at least not on the level of The Governor or Negan.

Merle wasn’t really all that necessary to progress the story here, and it actually helped tell us more about Daryl and the relationship between the two brothers.

However, he was a strong personality who knew how to fight and was so determined to survive that he cut off his own hand.

It seemed a bit weak for a guy with guts like that to go down so early.

We would have been plenty pleased with Merle getting shot and/or escaping without injury,

only to turn up later in the show. Perhaps at the end of season 7 he’s with Negan and The Saviors?

That would have been great and at that point we could still have gotten that bittersweet Daryl vs. Merle showdown.

Andrea (Death: Bitten by Milton Hamet, then suicide by gun in season 3 finale)

This was absolutely an unnecessary death. Andrea was a key character and we’re sure TWD show runners constantly feel like they have to off someone,

but Andrea had turned from a weak character to one of the strongest over time.

We didn’t really shed tears when she ultimately died, but she was placed in a pretty crummy situation,

where The Governor locked her up in a room and killed his right hand man, Milton, hoping he’d eat her alive.

That’s pretty much what happened, as Milton naturally turned after dying and Andrea couldn’t escape in time to prevent herself from getting bitten.

The group discovers her too late and gives her the classic out of a bullet in the head so she doesn’t have to walk the earth as a zombie.

It provided us with a pretty powerful scene to close out season three,

but Andrea was a strong character and could have been rather useful down the road.

She also was never allowed to truly redeem herself after joining up with The Governor,

so it was a shame to see her story cut short.

That’s partially the point, however. In this post-apocalyptic world, it’s not always going to be a happy ending.

Karen (Death: Got sick and then murdered and set on fire by Carol)

We don’t know much about Karen, other than she was Tyrese’s girl,

seemed to be a good person and had some badass qualities.

What we really know is she escaped The Governor’s community, got sick and then got dead.바카라사이트

Her death did play a key part in the evolution of Carol (and Tyreese and others),

but Carol could have killed anyone and the thing with Tyrese could have been used differently.

The potential for another strong female character was there and she was promising in the bits we saw her,

but the show robbed us of any other possibility by killing her off in season three.

Hershel Greene (Death: Decapitated by The Governor in season 4)

Hershel picked up where Dale left off and for a good two seasons, was a fantastic fatherly figure that really guided Rick Grimes and the entire group.

Hershel survived a ton of bad stuff, too, as he escaped an infested and burning country farm,

watched as his friends and family were brutally murdered and even endured an amputated leg and getting bitten by a walker.

The big mistake was Hershel getting caught by The Governor near the middle of season 4, in what ended up being an epic “finale worthy” episode.

Hershel’s death was massive and lead to a big war at the prison, while it also played a key role in further character development for a lot of the group.

That being said, he didn’t have to necessarily die at this point. The Governor was already a ruthless character

that wanted to take the prison and kill Rick’s group. He didn’t need to send a message by first offing Hershel.

The Governor (Death: Stabbed by Michonne and shot by Lilly Chambler)

The Governor was a massive character in the comics and a great TV character, so it was tough to see him go even after almost two full seasons.

The evolution of his character probably did come full circle, though, so we can see why the group needed to defeat him and move on to a different obstacle.

Still, TWD could have had the group win and move on without The Governor’s death,

only to bring him back later with a bigger, stronger army and present a much more difficult test.

That could have also given way to killer storylines dominated by The Governor.

Gareth (Death: Hacked to bits by Rick)

Gareth was the nasty leader at Terminus and he certainly got what was coming to him,

but the entire Terminus storyline felt a little underplayed after so much build up with the journey and destination throughout season four.

We really only see this epic storyline last four full episodes, as the group realizes their possible fate in the season four finale,

escapes in the season five premier and murders Gareth and his group out of necessity in the third episode of season five.

That all gave us a great story and no part of the Rick/Group versus Gareth/Terminus lacked power,

emotion or importance, but it all kind of came at you pretty fast.

That entire storyline could have been heavily layered and strewn out, quite possible over all of season 5.

Gareth’s death and the triumph over what’s left of Terminus does lead to a transition that gets our beloved characters one step closer to Alexandria,

but there was more to work with here via such savage characters like Gareth.

Beth Greene (Death: Shot in head by Dawn in hospital in middle of season 5)

There is no taking away from Beth’s death on The Walking Dead. She had a weird relationship with Dawn,

the show probably needed a big character to die and she was basically making a power play to save Noah.

It was a major letdown to go through the entire process of Beth being abducted and basically held against her will,

only to finally have the group catch up with her and see her die.

It was a powerful moment, one that again led to further development of several main characters,

but Beth was a sweet, kind character that looked for the good in most situations.

There was also a potential budding romance between her and Daryl that was loosely explored.

Unfortunately, we’ll never know where that would have gone or if Beth could have served a greater purpose.

Tyreese (Death: Bitten by walker while losing his freaking mind)

This death was just disappointing because Tyreese was such a brute physical force, and also a kind, gentle soul.

He was a complete character, heavily useful and had strong ties to numerous characters.

More than anything, his death was just reckless and pointless. Tyreese and Rick join Noah to see if his old

community is habitable, and there we see Tyreese hallucinate and eventually get bitten by one of Noah’s dead brothers.

It was a pretty weak way for Tyreese to go, but it seemed like the rough journey he’d been on was starting to weigh down on him mentally.

He probably didn’t have much longer beyond that, even if he’d avoided getting bit.

Noah (Death: Ripped apart by zombies after being caught in revolving door)

Noah’s death was annoying for several reasons. For one, Beth basically died for him to live, we visited his

community where Tyreese got bit and we literally knew of this character for just a handful of episodes.

He hadn’t earned his keep yet, much less cozied up to our “give a crap” feels when it came to losing a character.

Truth be told, his death was massive for the evolution of Glenn and it made for a powerful scene,

but it could have absolutely been avoided – if not at least delayed.온라인카지노

Why the Raiders Are a Lock For the 2016 Playoffs

The Oakland Raiders marched into New Orleans as slight underdogs in week one and ultimately prevailed

with a massive upset thanks to a bold two-point conversion with under a minute to go. 카지노사이트

Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio did not waver under the pressure of high expectations, nor the intensity of a tough road battle with an explosive Saints team.

Instead, Del Rio opted to “win right now”, and sent Derek Carr back onto the field to go for the win on a pass to veteran receiver, Michael Crabtree.

The gutsy move worked out, as the Raiders took a 35-34 lead and held off the Saints’ last ditch effort to get a huge week one win.

Oakland showcased their talent, confidence and upside in just one game – all of which could easily be

parlayed into the franchise’s first trip back to the NFL playoffs since 2002.

The Raiders’ last trip to post-season play also happened to end with an appearance in the Super Bowl.

With Oakland’s impressive 1-0 start taking center stage among NFL story-lines, it’s fair to wonder if Oakland

can not only finally get back into the playoff picture, but also make a deep run.

AFC West is No Picnic

It may start within their own division, where the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs still look like tough outs in the AFC West.

The Broncos still have some questions at the quarterback position, but have owned the Raiders for much of the rivalry’s history.

They also won a tough battle with a good Panthers team in week one, and by all account have the elite

defense and strong running game to make another run at an AFC West crown – something they’ve claimed five straight seasons.

The Chiefs could also be viable contenders, as they displayed just as much grit as Oakland did in week one,

as they stormed back from a 21-3 hole to take down the San Diego Chargers in overtime.

None of that says the Raiders are for sure the inferior team of that trio, but there’s no denying the competitiveness inside this division.

Needless to say, even if Oakland can’t take the top spot, they’ll probably need to at least finish second in the

AFC West if they want to earn a wild card playoff spot.

Whether or not they can accomplish that will likely largely be determined by their matchups with Denver and

Kansas City, but a 1-0 start in a hostile environment is a strong start.

Reason For Optimism

Oakland still has a ton of work to do in 2016, but what we saw in week one was extremely encouraging.

There were some obvious hiccups on defense, as the Raiders allowed a 98-yard touchdown pass and Drew

Brees put up over 400 yards and four scores through the air.

It’s a lot to ask for even the best defenses in the NFL to stifle New Orleans in the Superdome, but the Raiders really had no answer for the Saints defensively.

Had their offense not shown up, this game would have been an ugly blowout. 바카라사이트

That being said, Oakland’s defense has a lot of nice pieces and is slowly turning into a strong, balanced unit.

They can learn a lot from getting shredded through the air in week one, while they can take solace in the fact

that it did come against a potent offense on the road, and not some trash offense on their home field.

Defensive issues in week one aside, the Raiders did a lot in week one to show us they just might be the real deal.

Overall, we learned:

  • Oakland is resilient
  • Derek Carr is clutch
  • Jack Del Rio isn’t scared
  • They can win on the road
  • They can hang with anyone

Coming back from a 24-10 hole in the second half proved the Raiders not only don’t quit, but they can fight

back in a tough spot on the road.

Going for two and actually converting also showed us they’re not scared, have clutch ability and can close the deal in a tough road environment.

Oakland didn’t torch a good defense in week one, but putting up 35 points on the road against anyone

displayed their immense offensive upside.

Given the atmosphere and pressure situations they were in during the entire second half, it was quite impressive.

Oakland’s Super Bowl Odds

Whether all of this turns into a division title, playoff spot or dramatic run at a Super Bowl remains to be seen.

What we do know is judging by one week, Oakland is a very interesting team and if you’re looking for

a Super Bowl sleeper, they’re definitely in the conversation.

Raiders’ Super Bowl Odds +2500
Bovada seems to agree, too, as the Raiders’ Super Bowl odds sit at a decent +2500 at the moment.

If they keep handing out thrilling wins like they did in week one, those title odds might even increase.

Naturally, if you’re buying into Oakland, the time to bet on the Raiders to win it all could be now.

Raiders Prediction
A flier Super Bowl bet can be fun, but we wouldn’t bet the farm on Oakland winning it all just yet.

There is still enough out there to keep us from fully buying into the Raiders. The list is actually a tad daunting, too:

  • AFC West is tough
  • Derek Carr is in just his 3rd season
  • Running game is unproven
  • Defense needs to be better
  • AFC wild card is no lock

The big takeaway is a total catch-22: Oakland is very talented and not at all afraid to aim high in 2016.

They’re undefeated at the moment and with so much potential and confidence meshed together,

they truly could be capable of great things this year.

Still, their division is not going to be easy, we still need to see high level consistency from Carr,

their running game remains a question mark and as talented as their defense is, we still need better production.

Throw in a challenging wild card fight that could include teams like the Bills, Jets, Ravens, Steelers, Colts

and others, and it’s clear that Oakland won’t find getting back to post-season play to be easy.

That being said, we do think it’s time the Raiders make their way back to the playoffs. Kansas City and Denver

both have some flaws and understandably could be due for some regression and even if they aren’t,

the Raiders matchup well on paper with most of the best wild card teams in the AFC.

It won’t be easy, but we like Oakland’s chances to reach for 10 wins and a playoff spot.온라인카지노

Why Casinos Love Gamblers Who Play Roulette

Picture, maybe, a casino freshman in your life who doesn’t understand anything about betting.

If you had any desire to give them a quick and painless prologue to the universe of wagering, which game could you pick?

For my cash, the roulette wheel will generally be the ideal vehicle for first-time card sharks to get in the game.

Paired “either” wagering, a lively speed of play, and premium payouts that reach 35 to 1 make roulette agreeable and charming for novices and regulars the same. 카지노사이트

So, players ought to always remember that the club emphatically savors each bet put on a roulette turn.

Check underneath for seven justifications for why the house is generally glad to offer all the roulette activity you can deal with.

1 – Roulette Players Can’t Use Strategy to Boost Odds

Whenever you place a bet inside the limits of a gambling club, you should rest assured that you’re taking the most horrendously terrible of things with regards to the chances.

Each betting game at any point created was planned explicitly to offer the house an intrinsic edge.

On the gaming machines, players endeavor to endure to the point of lucking out and arrange the reels perfectly to create a big stake payout.

Obviously, with each twist bringing about a lofty house edge somewhere in the range of 6% and 8%, the openings can undoubtedly wipe away whole bankrolls many times over before truly apportioning their valuable big stakes.

And meanwhile, players can’t do a thing aside from relax and take it all in the reels turn while wanting to see lightning strike.

Different games, for example, blackjack and video poker, give players a little rope to work with.

By permitting players to follow up on their hand — by sitting tight, attracting extra cards to possibly improve, or twofold the bet when ideal spots emerge — these expertise based games bear the cost of a few key components.

The house actually holds an edge, keep in mind, yet a brilliant and canny player who realizes their fundamental methodology outlines can trim that edge down to simply parts of a rate point.

Indeed, as anyone who has watched the mark red and dark wheel turn endlessly round can bear witness to, roulette is an unadulterated toss of the dice.

At the end of the day, whenever you’ve put down a bet, you have totally no capacity to impact the result or work on your chances of accomplishment.

Appropriately, clubs love to see players take a shot at an irregular toss of the dice like roulette instead of an ability based issue.

2 – Roulette Offers Players One of the Highest “Base Game” House Edges Around

Also, presently, we should continue on toward certain points of interest…

In an advanced American club, nine out of 10 roulette tables you see will turn a twofold zero wheel.

In other words, the wheel will include the numbers 1-36 in red or dark, alongside two green spaces (0 and 00).

The first roulette wheels, and the ones utilized predominantly in Las Vegas up until somewhat as of late, just showed a solitary 0 space.

Today, those single-zero wheels are known as “European” or “French” Roulette, and they’re commonly saved for hot shots (more on this to come).

On a solitary zero wheel, the house edge against players remains at a sensible 2.70%.

However, because of the expansion of that subsequent green space, twofold zero wheels swell the house edge to 5.26%.

Put another way, for each $100 you bet on twofold zero roulette, the house can hope to win $5.26 regardless.

When contrasted with a game like blackjack — which offers a house edge of just 0.50% on its “base” game bet — roulette is basically multiple times more regrettable according to the player’s viewpoint.

Also, regardless of whether you maintain your concentration to shots in the dark alone, roulette is way more awful than contenders like baccarat (1.06% on investor hand/1.24% on player) and craps (1.41% on the pass line).

3 – Roulette Players Routinely Pass up Better Odds Out of Inexperience or Inconvenience

Discussing those single-zero roulette wheels of old, numerous players erroneously accept that the corporate club transitioned away from them altogether.

All things considered, walking any Sin City club will introduce many twofold zero wheels, while single-zero games are rarely found.

However, in actuality, tables offering that diminished 2.70% house edge rate can be found all over town when you know where to look.

The captivating betting royal residences on the Strip will quite often hide their single-no games in detached high-limit rooms.

With by far most of the wheels in the general pit region highlighting twofold zero play,

the armies of travelers who show up day to day basically wagered on the nearest choice within reach.

Simultaneously, they almost twofold the chances against them while never seeing the distinction.

Truth be told, The Venetian even explored different avenues regarding a triple-zero wheel which expanded the house edge to an indecent 7.69%. 안전한카지노사이트

Obviously, that indecent bastardization of roulette actually figured out how to draw stuffed tables

on the grounds that the typical speculator simply doesn’t have the foggiest idea about any better.

4 – Roulette’s Most Popular Bet Will Only Win 2.7% of Spins on Average

At the point when you see a Hollywood scene including roulette activity, the players are never wagering on double equal odds choices like red or dark, odd or even, and low (1-18) or high (19-36).

All things being equal, they put a couple of chips on their #1 numbers and desire to see the bobbing white ball land totally set up.

These single-number wagers are a roulette table’s meat and potatoes, thanks to a great extent to a succulent 35 to 1 payout.

Believe it or not, a measly $5 chip on your birthday or fortunate number can bring back an incredible $175 consequently.

You won’t find recompense proportions like that beyond the machine games,

or the longest longshots in craps, which makes roulette interesting to the typical player.

Well, why attempt to crush out twelve winning hands in blackjack when simply a solitary lucky twist delivers a similar benefit?

Indeed, that 35 to 1 payout may be sweet, however it’s as yet a far sight from the 37 to 1 chances against handling a solitary roulette number.

Also, in view of that error, you can hope to see your number come in only 2.70% of all twists.

That’s right, on over 97% of your single-number plays, the wheel will neglect to collaborate and the house wins.

Considering those chances, it’s no big surprise why club spread more roulette activity than some other table game.

5 – Roulette Creates a Fast Pace of Play Which Sees One Spin Made Every Minute

Another enormous shelter roulette manages the cost of the house comes from the game’s fast speed of play.

From the time you move forward and put down a bet, to the croupier waving their hand and turning the wheel, before at long last gathering misfortunes while paying out victors — just 60 seconds pass by and large.

That implies you’ll play at a speed of one twist each moment during your time at the table.

The speed of play itself is somewhat equivalent to games like blackjack and baccarat, yet as you learned before, roulette’s home edge is a whole lot higher. That 5.26% benefit held by the house, squeezed again and again every single moment, just mixtures the unfortunate chances players face.

6 – Roulette Is Rife for Betting “Frameworks” Like the Martingale and the D’Alembert

I totally abhor counterfeit betting “frameworks” sold by the deceitful to the clueless, so I’ll leave this section leniently short.

Self-announced roulette “specialists” have long sold “can’t-miss” wagering “systems” which indicate to create predictable benefits.

You could have known about the Martingale, which guides players to twofold their even cash wagers after any misfortune. Thusly, as the con artists guarantee at any rate, at whatever point you at long last end the terrible streak you’ll be left with a one-bet benefit.

7 – Roulette Attracts Superstitious Players Who Succumb to the “Players Fallacy”

Ultimately, have you at any point seen that splendidly lit show board which goes with each roulette table?

The board shows ongoing outcomes, featuring which numbers and tones have been arrived upon over the last 20 or so turns. By showing players transient streaks like five reds in succession, or no single-digit numbers in the last 10 twists, casinos go after a peculiarity known as the “player’s paradox.” 온라인카지노

How to Find a Great Blackjack Game

With regards to playing real money blackjack, all blackjack tables are not made equivalent. The standard guidelines for club blackjack have moved throughout the long term.

There are a few factors that drive the progressions gambling clubs make to the blackjack tables.

A portion of the progressions are only the casino seeking compensation for income lost because of the increasing expenses of working a casino.

The other significant element achieving changes to club blackjack games is the benefit card shark.

Advantage speculators use strategies like card building up to delete the house benefit and concrete their capacity to procure a benefit playing blackjack. 카지노사이트

Choosing the best blackjack game can demonstrate trying for players that don’t have the foggiest idea what to search for at a table. Fortunately, you have come to the ideal locations.

What Makes a Great Blackjack Game?

You should recognize whether you’ll play on the web or in a land-based club right off the bat in your arranging stage.

While the games are fundamentally played something very similar, there are a few tremendous contrasts between the two.

Land-based casinos have a colossal accentuation on security.

This eye overhead guarantees that all visitors stay safe and aren’t designated by hoodlums while at the same time assisting the club with getting miscreants and spot advantage card sharks.

Each of this costs the club cash, and cash should be made back at the tables.

Online casinos put their accentuation on network protection, guaranteeing that all games are fair and square and individual information isn’t compromised. The expense is as yet significant. Be that as it may, with less all out upward, online gambling clubs by and large have looser principles than land-based club games.

Research the Casinos Before You Leave Home

An opportunity to start scanning the casino for the best game isn’t the point at which you show up at the club. The most common way of exploring the best games ought to begin before you at any point take off from your home or register a record with an internet based gambling club.

Begin by signing on to the site and peruse the gambling club for various games advertised. A few basic variables like the quantity of decks and payout for naturals might be forgotten about.

That is not much, as casino aren’t in no rush to freely air their mysteries in general. In any case, this ought to provide you with a nice gauge of what’s in store when you show up at your objective.

I propose circling back to this progression by checking out at online surveys and betting discussions. You really must believe any singular surveys tentatively. 안전한카지노사이트

Table Rules Are Paramount

The table guidelines will enormously affect your blackjack insight. You’ll have to find a game that permits the player to slide the house edge as low as could really be expected.

You might stay there with no thought of what to search for or where to begin. In this way, how about we cover a portion of the simple ones to kick you off.

The main variable to consider is the manner by which the game plays for a characteristic blackjack. The gambling club standard for blackjack is a payout of 3:2.

For instance, on the off chance that you’re playing for $100 per hand, a blackjack pays you $150 notwithstanding your unique bet.

Most gambling clubs actually have a greater part of tables that pay 3:2.

Sadly, many games have started to pay a much more terrible 6:5 for a whiz.

That implies players wagering $100 per hand just get $120 for a blackjack.

This uniqueness dispatches the club’s benefit to twofold almost.

Track down the Right Dealer

Searching for the right dealers is critical to finding a phenomenal blackjack game.

The dealer is directing the boat with regards to blackjack, and any boat is just on par with what its chief.

On the off chance that you have a messy dealer that seems unkempt, there’s a decent opportunity the game will be untidy and an absolute wreck.

Find a dealer that is more worried about different interruptions,

and the game will feel disorderly and a piece awkward.

Land on a table with a cranky dealer that deals with you like a burden.

Nonetheless, find yourself a settled up dealer that basically seems to appreciate what they’re doing, and you’re in good shape.

The legitimate dealer can add a huge load of happiness to your absolute blackjack insight.

A smooth game will permit you to fall into a cadence.

That can be similarly as in a general sense pacifying the relaxed blackjack player for all intents and purposes to the card counter.

Scope Out the Players

However, it makes sense that different players will impressively affect the blackjack game — not in the manner numerous players accept.

Assuming that you’re new to what I’m alluding to, great.

That implies you’re not in that frame of mind of faulting different players for your unfortunate independent direction or unadulterated misfortune.

It’s vital to investigate the players and figure out the table energy.

It tends to be debilitating playing at a table loaded with beginners while you’re hoping to have a serious meeting at the blackjack table.

You can likewise feel totally out of place assuming you’re there to unwind with a couple of mixed drinks and the table is all around as solemn as a memorial service. It can drain the tomfoolery right out of the game. 온라인카지노

Why Do You Always Split Aces in Blackjack

You don’t need to be a Las Vegas card counter or have many years of club insight to realize a couple of essential gambling club betting realities. Indeed, even the greenest club visitors realize that the house generally wins.

Nonetheless, not all club jokes are actually that inefficient. For instance, I routinely hear players let their companions know that you ought to generally divide pros in blackjack.

That is strong guidance that fills a need and can produce improved results for a player. I accept a greater part of club blackjack players have heard that adage commonly. However, I seldom see players split experts reliably. 안전한카지노사이트

Have they failed to remember this straightforward reality of essential technique, or would they say they are dubious of dividing pros for another explanation?

I believe it’s hard for players to twofold their stake in a hand without understanding why it is fundamental. We will take a gander at why you generally split experts in blackjack.

The Strategy Behind Splitting in Blackjack

Dividing pros works out in a good way past the initial feeling numerous players get. The notice of dividing experts quickly invokes thoughts of the subtle twofold blackjack.

While the twofold blackjack may not be as great to see as a twofold rainbow, it can help your bankroll playing blackjack.

Assuming you’re playing a decent blackjack game, a characteristic pays out 3 to 2. You realize a blackjack won’t push since you’re as of now done assuming the vendor has a blackjack.

Along these lines, you are multiplying your interest in order to win back multiple times your cash. It will not necessarily in all cases work out like that; you will miss a bigger number of blackjacks than you get from dividing experts.

You Shouldn’t Be Excited for a 12 Except in This Instance

For what reason did I regard my pal’s recommendation with such excitement?

Since he was correct, and I knew it before the words left his mouth. There’s nothing there for you with a delicate twelve.

Whenever you sit on a delicate twelve, you’re simply trusting the vendor busts. There’s an explanation: fundamental procedure reliably makes them hit on twelve except if the vendor has a four, five, or six.

This is on the grounds that twelve is awful all alone, yet there’s opportunity to get better. Accepting you miss a ten, you’re naturally in better shape.

You should view the pros as a valuable chance to get one over on the house. That will make the twofold wins that much better.

A few Players Insist That You Never Split Under These Conditions

There’s a gathering of veteran blackjack players who will attempt to persuade you that you ought to never divide your experts when the seller is showing a ten. Their rationale is predicated with the understanding that the vendor’s opening card is additionally a ten. 카지노사이트

That would imply that you should hit tens to win the hand. Your chances of doing that are under 12%, so it appears to be consistent.

In any case, that is provided that the vendor has twenty. The odds are the vendor doesn’t have twenty by any stretch of the imagination.

Yet, that won’t make any difference on the grounds that some other card in the deck other than a two will have you beat. Once more, you should pause and supplicate the vendor busts.

These players likewise neglect to represent how a nine could be exceptionally helpful while dividing experts. In any event, when the seller has twenty, you’ll push with a nine.

You’ll Always Split Your Eights Too

While we’re regarding the matter of continuously dividing your experts, how about we cover another hand that you ought to part each and every time. A twelve is a quite intense number in blackjack, yet just the tens will kill you.

Nonetheless, begin watching a player that is being managed sixteen consistently. Sixteen is the most exceedingly awful hand in blackjack since you’ll presumably get beat assuming that you stand. However, in the event that you hit, you’re likely going to bust.

Sixteen is a genuine lose/lose suggestion at the blackjack table. Indeed, even fundamental methodology will advise you to overlap a fraction of the time, hit the other half, and implore consistently.

In any case, in the event that you’re sufficiently fortunate to manage your sixteen as a couple of eights, unexpectedly things aren’t really horrible. I’ll take my risks with eights whenever, anything 17 or higher, and the vendor has a difficult, but not impossible task ahead.

Never Deviate from Basic Strategy, Unless You’re Counting Cards

Essential technique is one of the most great devices a blackjack player has available to them. I’d say card counting is the main more significant weapon for battling the house edge.

Best card counters will not hold back to let you know that they utilize a fundamental system for each hand they play. That incorporates dividing their pros (and eights).

However, there’s one slight contrast in the card counters’ way to deal with dividing aces. There aren’t a huge number left in the deck when the count is negative.

Along these lines, dividing aces sets out a more huge freedom for losing the two wagers. That is not a strong system for creating a gain from the game.

Appropriately, card counters will try not to divide aces in these situations. On the off chance that you’re not including cards, this doesn’t concern you.

Splitting Often Means Bankroll Considerations

Whenever you start getting into the demonstration of dividing pros, numerous players scoff at the extra burden on their bankroll. Nonetheless, the essential technique as of now represents your parts while considering the house edge.

Assume you’re playing in a good game where the technique decreases the house edge to beneath 1%. That is on the grounds that the mathematics depends on you parting where is proper.온라인카지노
