Q: When I watch poker shows on TV, I get the impression that only good hands are dealt to players. Are they being manipulated there? The answer: In fact, these are all the wonders of editing. Thanks to editors, you'll never see thousands of boring, trivial giveaways. All this is done to make it interesting for viewers to watch the broadcast. Another point you should be aware of is that you almost never watch a live broadcast.
All editions of the WSOP and any other series on TV are broadcast later one month after the series was held.
Q: in a heads-up game, I go all-in, and my opponent turns the cards over without saying a word. Are his actions considered a pass? I threw my cards into the Mac because I thought he had discarded his cards. However, players with NATs (the best possible combination on the Board) very often turn their cards over in the blink of an eye just to avoid wasting time and "drinking the blood" of their opponent. In this case, the demonstration of cards will be counted as a call, based on the strength of the combination. But it should also be noted that in tournaments, your hand can be considered "dead" if you turn the cards over. This may not seem important, but it is better to check the rules with the dealer or Manager. And if you play at home, then make an agreement with other players so that there will be no disagreements.

However, there is a strong possibility that some US States will legalize poker. And if this happens in new York and California, we can expect a mini-boom.Let's imagine: online poker in, But there are also points on the world map where poker has just begun to develop.
This is primarily South America.
Well, Asia remains the sweetest whale in the world poker aquarium.

Question: My friends and I they were playing poker. I had - on my hands, my friend J-. Who should win in this situation? Answer: Your friend. This is a fairly common situation that causes confusion for beginners. You have two pairs in your hands (Fours and Threes), but there are two older pairs on the Board (Fours and Tens).
In this situation, seniority is determined by the kicker.
Your opponent has collected a --J combo, and you have collected a.Seniority of poker hands in no-Limit hold'em Q: I just recently started playing poker online. But once I was suspected of colluding because I simply marked my hand on the river. Why? Answer: Most likely, you just checked with the best (of all possible) hands on the river. That is, they did not take any active actions. An experienced player will consider this action as collusion on your part with another player. Don't worry, this situation can happen to any player. Just remember the rule: if you have the strongest hand on the river a combination of all possible ones on the Board, you must perform an active action.Strange poker rules that you didn't know about before Question: I play online poker at low limits. A month ago, I withdrew my winnings. And since then, regardless of my hand, I've been outbid by my opponent every time on the river, getting one of their outs. This has been going on for the second month now. What should I do? The answer: This is called "variance". There is a chance that you had a good time before, since you were able to withdraw your winnings. But now your luck has run out. If you believe that the RNG is being adjusted after the cashout, then write down your hand history for the past year and carefully review it. You will see that over time, the distance returns everything to its place.
