Advantage Casino Credit
 

This section is for those who do legitimate playing in recognized American casinos, and when we write of taking advantage of casino credit, I'm not writing about scams or about gambling in excess or going crazy at the tables with casino money. What I'm going to discuss is a same way to handle your credit and to make certain that you don't hurt yourself in the process.
How can you legitimately take advantage of casino credit? The best way is by establishing credit at a few casinos that you are comfortable playing at, then using that credit in the best possible way.

First of all, most casinos will ask you to set a check-cashing limit of your own, an amount you don't want to go over, for your own protection. If they don't ask you, tell them you want this limit. In other words, even though you may have estab-lished a $10,000 credit line, if you state that you don't ever want to sign a check for more than $2,000 while staying at the casino or have your outstanding unpaid markers exceed $2,000, then the casino will have to automatically cut off. Your credit for your own protection.

If they don't do this, if they allow you to play for than the $2,000, you may very well have a legitimate for not paying any gambling debts in excess of that, casino may back down and forget about these debts in of $2,000.
By doing this, you'll prevent yourself from losing your entire credit line during one disastrous spree at the tables, when you're losing heavily or have been drinking too much. Once that limit is reached your credit is cut off, and you're action. This procedure is always suggested because it's saved a lot of people from really hurting themselves at the tables

What About Your Odds of Winning When You're Not on a Draw?
 
This is a much murkier task. When you calculate the odds of making a draw, you work with known figures: the number of outs compared to the number of unseen cards. This simplicity stems from the assumption that if you make your draw, you will win. Conversely, when you are playing a hand that is already fairly strong but not as good as a made straight or flush, its odds of 'Ainning are based on unknowns, because you don't know what cards your opponents hold. It is usually possible to guess what draws your opponents are on and figure their chances of hitting. But because of the chance that your hand is already beaten, you can't assume that you will win if all your drawing opponents miss, which thwarts any attempt at a precise calculation. But all is not lost.
It turns out that when you have a hand like a high pair, two pair, or three of a kind, which have respectable chances of winning without improvement in real poker games, your strategy doesn't depend on your precise odds of winning. In all these cases, whatever your exact odds are, they are good enough for you to stay in the hand. So your play with hands like these is based not on a probability calculation but on your knowledge of the general strength of your hand and your perceptions of your opponents' strengths.
