The E-casino Industry
 
A look at some of the statistics and players of online gambling shows that beef-dairy is not just a cutesy metaphor; there is powerful evidence that the most important players are insisting on an honest games. Besides the software and e-cash firms, there are the consortiums that own strings of major websites; they all want a clean parlor. Tending toward the beef trade are the small, single proprietor Internet casinos. They do not have the capital for the fanciest software. They cannot afford to offer jackpots of hundreds of thousands of dollars. They cannot buy respectability. in the form of a government license. The beef operations will be increasingly squeezed in future years by the big guys. These are the places you want to avoid. If you can identify them, you can have a happy career of bonus hustling.

On the whole, e-casinos will pay. Why? Because they know we've got milk. They will make far more money if Internet gambling is trusted. The software providers are in a central position for benefitting from high volume. As the licensors of the gambling platforms, the software companies are also in a powerful position to influence the honesty of the games. Dairy casinos outnumber the quick-buck beef sites.

Basic Mechanics of Omaha-8
 
Whether or not the board allows a low is a land of toggle switch that invokes one of two dynamics for the hand. A low is possible when the board contains three or more unpaired cards of eight or lower, which happens roughly 60 percent of the time to an outside observer. Your chances of making a low are usually less, however, because you are holding low cards and you have to subtract the chance that the board will pair one or more of them. This is one of the ways that the interaction between the board and your hand is more complex in Omaha-8 than in Texas. It's called counterfeiting. Counterfeiting is when a card in your hand that gives you strength is copied (or otherwise nullified) by a common card on the board, thus spoiling your hand. This happens fairly frequently in Omaha-8, particularly with the low. Example:
- Suppose you hold A-2Q-T, and an opponent holds A-4-Q-K. The board on the turn is 5-6-K-8. Right now, you have the nut low with 8-6-5-_2-A_, and your opponent is in second place with 8-6-5-4-A.
- But you do not have a lock on the low. What if the river is a 2? That makes the board 5-6-K-8-2. Your low hand would still be 8-6-5-2-A, but your opponent would have 6-5-4-2-A and beat you. In this case, the 2 on the river counterfeited your nut low hand.
