Bluff-Check-Raise, and its value in medium-stakes online poker.

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

I got this from a video Gus posted through ThePlayr.com – and obviously he has a point. Check-raising represents an extremely strong hand, and in the games Gus plays I’m assuming this strategy, if used rarely, works like a charm. Here’s what he says:

Well, from my experience in medium- and low-stakes online No-Limit Hold’em games, I can tell you this strategy is a lot less valueble the lower the stakes get. Try to use it only when you have a good read on your low-stakes opponent, because on average they will not be experienced enough to understand your advanced play, or even what BASIC representation you’re trying to make WITH your advanced play. Beware!

Online Poker in Europe

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

Online Poker in Europe is growing like never before. The Casino and Poker Market are getting better and bigger every day. On the other hand the US is loosing terain every day because of the Uiega. The beste online casino are not permitted every day in the US and thats really a shame. Of course you can play Poker and casino games every day in Las Vegas but thats not the same as playing in a online Casino or online poker room.

In Europe for example the casinos en ligne are not forbidden and alot of players play every day and win big numbers. Also the bonus casino en ligne is much better in a online casino or online poker room. If you play poker online it’s allways good to search the best option for you available. Some people in Holland play the best games in their ideal online casino. Some people in Germany like to play with the beste online casino or online casino bonus.

Gus makes Quads in this hand also featuring top high-stakes players David Benyamine & Brian “sbrugby” Townsend. Benyamine makes a boat but obviously loses to Hansen’s Quad nines. Small blind special, anyone?

Gus Hansen Loses a M, Wins a M back

Saturday, April 12th, 2008

This is Gus Hansen naked. I mean he’s not naked but he’s talking to us 100% pure, talking about a 2-month cold streak and climbing back out of it in one night. This is not Gus empostering about winning a million, it’s Gus talking about winning a million in 3 days and still being down for a 2-month period.

Gus is a gambler, and it’s video blogs like this that school players like us — playing lower levels and having a hard time coping with losing streaks. Thanks, Gus!
