Bluffing is, without a doubt, a fine art when it comes to poker and especially when it comes to Texas Hold ’em. You must have courage, nerves of steel, or to quote our Jewish friends, a lot of chutzpah. But that’s not all, you also need the talent to be able to know when to bluff, when to represent that you have a winner when you may have nothing, and the ability to keep your tells completely under control. That may mean you purposely act one way or another to mislead your opponents or you keep a completely frozen face that tells no one anything.

Next time you sit down at a Texas holdem poker table will you have what it takes to bluff? Will you be able to not give away your tells? Can you hold a straight face long enough for your opponents to never know if you may be bluffing? If you’re ready to win and you’re ready for fun then watch the video below and listen to the song we wrote and produced to get our point across that we “May Be Bluffin’ But You’ll Never know.”

Daniel NegreanuWe’re revisiting this post from several years ago because it is still very relevant, helpful to all poker players, and most assuredly very educational for beginners.

Sticking with Daniel Negreanu for now because he sure knows how to play Poker. Daniel will tell you that “Small Ball Poker is all about the art of increasing your poker chips without risking a lot of them”.  In his videos he states that aggressive betting in Small Ball Poker will help you win lots of small pots, and I for one certainly agree with him. I know that is a great way to increase my Texas Hold em poker chips count.

Poker tables from the Texas Poker StoreYou too could start winning at the Texas Hold em Poker Tables using the following  Small Ball Poker Strategies:

1. Attack blinds aggressively but only raise 3 times the blinds.

2. Don’t try stealing the blinds if some one else has called in front of you.

3. Make sure to try stealing only with hands that have potential to hit big.

4. Avoid trying to steal with trash hands.

5. Play position; be aggressive and use position to steal pots.

6. Don’t limp in, bet 1/2 to 3/4ths of the pot

Bottom line, to be effective get into a lot of pots and put constant pressure on your opponents. Good luck

The dates for the 50th Annual World Series of Poker have been announced. Poker’s most well known and extremely popular poker tournament series is now set to take place from May 28th to July 16th, 2019. As usual the series will take place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas and as of now it is expected to award more than $200 Million Dollars.

There will be a special Historic Event in honor of the tournament’s 50 Birthday that is currently slated to start on opening weekend, May 30-June 2. This will be “The Big 50” -$500 buy-in, 50,000 chips, and 50-minute levels with a $5,000,000 million guaranteed prize pool & $1,000,000 to the winner.  “We’re excited to commence our golden event,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart.  “We expect our opening weekend Big 50 event to be one of the largest in our history, and certainly one of the best value tournaments ever offered.  This is part of our concerted plans to make the 2019 WSOP a better value all-around.”

There will also be lots of new events added to this year’s WSOP. To me, one of the coolest new event additions has to be a $1,000 buy-in Mini Main Event. Beginning a couple of days before the $10,000 buy-in actual Main Event gets on the way, the Mini Main Event will begin Monday, July 1 and Tuesday, July 2. Like its bigger namesake counter-part, the Mini Main Event will see players start with 60,000 in tournament chips and features the same blind structure with the only difference being a 30-minute  instead of 120-minute levels.

The popular Colossus event is back, with starting days on Wednesday, June 26 and Thursday, June 27. The Colossus will be the lowest-priced gold bracelet event on the 2019 schedule, with a $400 buy-in – down $165 compared to last year’s $565 buy-in. It comes with 40,000 in starting chips and will play 40-minute levels throughout. On June 28 the survivors see the field combined for Day 2 with the final table scheduled for Saturday, June 29.

There will be One-Day Super Turbos, the only live way to earn a bracelet in a day at the WSOP. In the $1,000 version, each player is a $300 bounty, while in the $1,500 version, each player is a $500 bounty.

Nearly 500 poker tables will be set up across more than 100,000 square-feet of ballroom space to accommodate the thousands of players from around the world who attend poker’s annual series of tournament events.

Individual event online pre-registration won’t open until March/April after all events have been determined and approved by regulators. WSOP.com’s real-money online poker offerings in New Jersey and Nevada will be the exclusive online home for players in these states to win seats into WSOP events, including the Main Event, as well as to participate in the exclusive online WSOP official gold bracelet events.

The full event-by-event schedule is expected to be released sometime in the first quarter of 2019. All above-announced dates, times, and events are subject to change, according to the WSOP press release.

We all know how good a poker player Daniel Negreanu is, but how many of you knew that he has a huge advantage because he is also a psychic? Watch this little video where he is playing against Jerry Buss, best known as the owner of the Los Angeles Lakers. Daniel actually calls for an 8 of diamonds and a jack of diamonds and gets them both on the turn and the river to beat Buss with a straight flush against his ace high flush.

When I saw this my immediate thought was that I would give up any of my poker chip sets to become a poker psychic. And my second thought was to never ever play against Daniel Negreanu. How about you; are you a poker psychic? What would you give up to become the Edgar Cayce of the Poker World?
