Basic Concepts
Notwithstanding cheating, the cards that come off a properly shuffled deck are random for all your intents and purposes. No higher powers are going to influence them, and no sixth senses are going to tell you which ones will fall next. The only things we can know about a properly shuffled deck of cards are the chances of certain cards coming, and we know that from the mathematics of probability. Without an understanding of the probabilities at workin poker and ]low to bet on them, you will never be a competent player.
