Strength Of Play In Casinos
Posted 16 November 2012 - 12:43 AM
Around the 1st of the month through the 15th there is more action. From the 15th to the end of the month the games are generally tougher.
As the sharks are running out of fish. They will eye your bankroll to keep theirs growing. Be aware of what part of the month it is.
Assuming you know no one there. Here is how i pick out the sharks from the fish.
Do any of the players look at their card last.
Are there alot of players playing alot of hands. ( 6 players or more in every pot )
Is the waiting list really long or short.
Are the players at the tables happy chatting it up or silent.
What kind of cards does each player play? Tight? Loose? Suited face, suited connecters any ace etc...
This is all before you take your seat... Casually stroll around to all the tables at the level you plan on playing. And take note mentally .
Now, once you are called to a table. Buy in. Sit down. And if you dont need to post i suggest coming in after the button.
If you need to post, wait for the big blind.
I dont play any hands for the first hour except kk and AA. Shoot, i hardly ever look at my cards in the first hour. I reccomend 30 minutes.
Just hang out n watch everyone else plays. Take this time to pickup on betting patterns.
If you look at your cards in the first 30 minutes. Think how you can use those cards to beat those whom are in the hand.
Take note if this table is passive. ( lots of calling little or no raising. ) this is the best table to be at.
In a loose table play tight agressive. But be ready to fold on the flop. Even AA.
Be diciplined and very patient. You may only play 1 or 2 hands an hour. Make them count.
If you cant raise with the hand. Dont play it.
Lastly. Leave the dark sun glasses and big cap at home and be chatty at the table. It distracts even the simi pro's at the table.
At the end of the night on a 3/6 table. You can make anywhere from 60.00 to ( my record ) 8000.00 in an 8 hour session. You may loose your buy in also.
Note: when you sit down at the table and do this. If you cant find the suckers.... You are the sucker. Ask for a table change or leave.

If you want to win, you have to come to peace with the idea that you will lose buy-ins and have losing sessions.
If you want to play socially for a fixed amount of time on a small bankroll, you have to come to peace with the idea that you're not going to win a lot of money.
