But the house will catch card counters, and they will either kick them out, or they will structure the game so that they cannot win even with counting. One of the greatest blackjack players who ever lived, a guy by the name of Stuey Ungar, lost the last of his money at the blackjack tables. He was so adept at reading cards, they changed the game from a $5/$600 spread to a $300/$600 spread. The result was that, since the minimum bet was $300, he could no longer create edges for himself in situations where the odds were in his favor, and he could no longer dribble chips away in the vast amount of situations where the odds were not in his favor.

Quote:

I also read a book by a guy who gives a complete method for winning at small-stakes, limit hold-'em poker. It's very specialized - the game changes if you go no-limit, or move to higher stakes, or play in tournaments - but he says he could reliably average winnings of $12-$15 per hour. He notes, however, that that is an average, and that it's not like you can walk into a casino with $50 and be confident of walking out with $75 two hours later; sometimes you will have much more, sometimes you might have nothing.

I'm a semi-professional poker player, and I know the books you talk about (I've read them all). Anyone can learn to beat a game of limit poker by learning basic probability. No limit poker is an entirely different beast, but definitely more profitable for those who know their odds. Tournament poker is completely different, and I'll freely admit that I'm just another donkey at the tournament tables. That said, I made about what your friend quoted, $12-$15 an hour, playing in a live $3/$6 limit hold 'em game, and this is over a span of about 500, 000 hands. I could move up in levels, but the problem for me is twofold. 1) I feel bad for the problem gamblers at the table, so I just have to leave sometimes to ease my own conscience and 2) Playing a $5/$10 game, where I was averaging about $20 an hour, the pots were so dang big they started to affect my game. A key element in being a winning poker player is not letting the size of the pot affect one's judgement. I will eventually move up, but I have no long term plans of going pro (I love my day job too much).

It depends partly on luck, and partly on the quality of your opponents - the whole method depends largely on the fact that most of the other people playing low-stakes, limit poker won't be very good at it. He recommends saving up a "cushion" of several hundred dollars before you start playing seriously.

You would be surprised. You already know more about the game of poker than most of the donkeys I meet who actually play the game on a regular basis. I'll be honest and say that out of the hundreds (no, thousands) of players I have encountered at poker tables over the years, there are about 12 good players (note, I've never played in Vegas). While every session is not a winning session, and some sessions are actually big losses, there is no gambling in poker for me, and there is no luck involved. The point you made about bankroll management is the most important reason why. I play $3/$6 as a game of choice, and that means that the biggest bet at any given time is $6. I have a bankroll of $2, 000 to play in this game in order to absorb the swings. With this much cushion, there is no short term for me. Put me at a table with 9 donkeys indefinitely, and I will get their money.

The difference, though, between me taking a poker player's money and the casino taking a slot machine player's money is the fact that the poker players have all the resources at their disposal necessary to beat the game. It's just that 99% of the poker players I run into think they are better than the people writing the books. Yep. And that's why the people writing the books do it for a living.

  • avatar How much money can you win from slot machines at casinos?
    • That depends on the slots. Some slots are progressive, which means the pot goes up until someone wins. Others have set amounts.

  • avatar Can you win at the slot machines?
    • yes.
      ANSWER:
      Sometimes. But if you keep playing, you will eventually lose it all back. Slot machines are set in favor of the House. Odds are, you won't win.

  • avatar How can you win at the slot machines?
    • The best way to WIN, is to stay HOME. If indeed, you head out with cash in hand. Set a preset spend amout, plan on how much you can afford to lose.
      Some "loose" machines are placed in high traffic areas.
      Do not spend time pumping cash into one machine thinking it is bound to hit, it will take your money.
      Go with machines with the best odds, and read the machine carefully before you play. Some only pay on with the second pay bet.
      HAVE FUN at it, and do not plan to win!
