Cheat At Card Games! Check Out These Tips!

While most people will consider cheating as being "wrong", sometimes cheating is more about learning and pulling the wool over your mates than anything else. Get caught cheating at a World Poker tour and you get thrown out and in a lot of trouble! Cheat with your friends? And it's usually funny, especially if its played with REAL money! I'm not promoting cheating, but if you want to, here are a few things you need to consider doing! First there is the old "card up the sleeve" trick. Not everyone can do this, especially if you laugh at funny stuff.

If you do want to do this, you should wear long sleeves so you can hide the card(s) up there! You also will want to stick cards up your sleeve when you know you're going to lose. Then, once you have all the cards for something like a straight flush, take them out slowly and bet big! Another big and very popular cheat is the bum deal trick. Try not to make it TOO obvious, but when dealing the cars arrange it so you get the best cards. And lastly, you can try peaking at your opponents cards. I'll be honest, I've done this one!

You can purposely play in front of something with a mirror or glare which is going to be able to let you see their cards. You can also try this with a glass table as well, but if you are playing with casino poker tables you can also "accidentally" drop something on the floor and look up at their cards. Most people won't even know what you're doing! Collect your poker chips and make some money - you cheater you!

The Different Kinds Of Rummy 500

As a kid, my mom and I always played Rummy 500, its one of my favorite card games, mostly because I actually KNOW how to play it. Other games like Texas Hold Em absolutely confuse me and take way too much patience for my liking! The rummy 500 game can be played with either just cards or you can also add in chips as well, poker chips work fine. The poker chips are if you want to make bets or side bets. There are several different kinds of rummy games that can be played right in your very own home.

Each one is going to have varying rules and guidelines. For example, with Canasta, also a personal favorite, you can play with 2 or 4 people. If you play with 2 people there are 108 cards in the pile, jokers, no laying off, and the main target is 5000 points. Each player also gets 15 cards for two players. Whereas with something like Kalooki which is a European game (known as Rummikub in the US), you get two decks, can play with almost as many players as you want, as long as each one gets 13 cards, there are jokers, you can lay off, and it's very similar to rummy 500.

Other card games you can check out are Pagat, Gin Rummy, and of course Russian Rummy. Rummy isn't your game? That's okay, you can also find poker chips and casino poker tables at our website as well as other accessories for all your gambling needs. This includes poker, blackjack, bridge, mahjong and just about any other game that has cards and chips!

How To Play Smart At The Casino Poker Tables

One of my number one rules about ANY kind of gambling is to NEVER bet more than you can afford. Remember, just because you are good, doesn't mean the cards are going to do exactly what you think every single time. You can lose and you can lose big. You hear about stores like this all time - heck they even made a few movies about it (see Lucky You with Drew Barrymore)! In order to play smart you have to be smart, this means using common sense. One thing you should be doing is cashing in your poker chops regularly.

Casinos are ALL about the lights, the action, and the excitement. So if you cash in your poker chips, you will be more liable to STOP betting. Which is sometimes a good thing! It’s like having a 22oz steak in front of you. Its juicy, it's delicious and it's calling your name. Same thing with poker chips. They sit in front of you and taunt you until you finally give in. Second off, have a "keep" pile and a "gambling" pile. For instance, if you just played on the $100 casino poker tables and you won $100 take that $100 you won, and pocket it.

Don't use this! You can use the $100 you originally started out with. If need be, and you really want to up the ante so to speak, take 20% out of the won cash and re-bet that amount, but place the rest in your keep pile. Lastly, stay smart and don't get emotionally involved. If you win big continuously throughout the night and you end up losing big - chances are you are going to feel really bad! Know when it's time to stop!

How Can I Learn To Read Poker Tells?

As most of you probably know, a person that can tell another persons "tells" are considered to be the most skilled player. A tell is any physical reaction to a hand. For example, maybe you have played with someone that coughs every time they have a good hand, or someone else that "shifts" in their chair when they have a bad hand - this is a tell! If you learn these tells then you can ultimately make better decisions in the game and hopefully win more money! There is a whole slew of them so here are just a few of the top ones!

If a player is caught glancing at his poker chips or the actual poker casino tables - chances are they have a good hand and are trying to figure out how much they should bet. If a player stares you down and tries to "scare" you, he probably has a weak hand and is trying to make himself feel dominate over you! If a player takes a long time to call or to make a bet, he or she is probably calculating the pot in their head trying to figure out if its worth it and if he or she has the cards they need to draw a completed hand!

Remember, a lot of experienced players will purposely throw off "false tells" to confuse YOU, so it's always a good idea to find out if a player is a novice or a pro before you even play them! To find some of out top rated poker chips and casino poker tables, visit

How Can I Buy Casino Poker Tables?

It used to be that the game of poker was only played in casinos. But nowadays, people would rather play in the comfort of their home than have the inconvenience of going out. Which is pretty understandable! Dodge the crowds, dodge the noisy people, and sit at home with your friends doing what you guys want to! When choosing ANY table - you absolutely need to make sure you focus on three main aspects; size, price, look. The size is going to depend on how much room you have for the specific table.

If you want a cheap and spacious choice you should take a look at tabletop options or fold-aways. If you want to spend a little more money and have the space, then you could consider something like a professional poker table. The professional table is also going to have some extras as well such as drink holders! Also, for size, you need to consider the number of people that will be playing. The price is going to depend on you and what casino poker tables you buy. For something like a tabletop, you are looking at a measly 100 bucks, but you also get less options as well. As for something like a professional table it's can come to 1000 more or less.

Alas, these tables are very sturdy, and have a very professional look to them - choose from different options, colors, and shapes such as circular, square or oval. For some reason the oval ones are always the most expensive! For something that's aesthetically pleasing you might want to choose from a professional or premium professional table. You can pick the color of the material and the textile used for the actual table set up, type of material (wood, plastic, metal), and you can also choose from various felt options as well. Don't forget about accessories! You will need things like poker chips and card dealers and you can get’em all at!

Solid Poker Table with Folding Legs

The main reason one would want to buy a folding table is mainly because they are cheap and they are space saving! However, these tables still can have quality and a nice look to them as well. The Internet is an awesome place to start looking for things like casino poker tables and poker chips. First off you should be taking a look at sizes. How many people need to sit at the table, how much room do you have for the table and what will you be playing at the table? Secondly, you need to think about how much you might want to spend.

Usually the cost of these folding tables depends on the size and the railings. Make sure if you buy a tabletop table that it actually fits ON your table - measure first, ask questions later. Next, you need to start taking a look at poker accessories such as poker chips, poker chip sets, holders, different kinds of felt, card dealers (auto and manual), etc. You have your choice when it comes to chips, there are all kinds of makes, models and textiles to choose from, but most people prefer clay or plastic PVC.

Lastly, make sure you take your time choosing a poker table. It doesn't matter if its $40 or $10,000 this table should be something that you really like and can get a lot of use out of!

How Can I Buy The Perfect Casino Poker Tables For Home Use?

If you want to host the best game in the neighborhood, you will need to invest in a few things such as poker chips and casino poker tables. I'm sure when you were playing with your family or practicing the game, you probably used your kitchen table, but now that you have special guests coming for a real game you are going to need to upgrade! There are several factors to take into consideration when buying new poker chips and a new casino poker table. First off, how often will you be using the table?

Usually if a game is only played once or twice a month you can get away with purchasing an inexpensive table. If you plan on scheduling regular poker games once a week it's a good idea to buy a quality table. Second off, you need to consider the number of players. Ten or less and one table should be good enough, ten or more then you would need to buy extra tables or an extra extra large one.

You can also buy a variety of felt options as well. Everything from solids and patterns to actual logo inspired themes. Depending on how much you want to spend, you will buy whatever table is up to par with your expenses. The premium is obviously going to costs a couple of thousands and the Roll Ups are going to cost the least at around $45!
