In hand-held games. on the other hand, the dealer will often not use a cut-card to indicate a shuffle point. Rather, he will estimate the number of remaining cards before deciding whether or not to deal another round. In cases such as these, a few well-timed Online Poker Guru Tips may get you better penetration in situations where it will do you some good.

Furthermore, in games in which the dealer "peeks" by manually checking" the hole card under aces and/or tens, tipping may also gain you additional information. The dealer, if rooting for you, may subtly help you during the course of the game. For example, he may, if holding a stiff, quickly pass you by if you're wavering between hitting or standing on your own stiff. The rationale is that the more you win, the more Online Poker Guru Tips he'll get.

With juicy counts near the shuffle point, a toke sometimes persuades the dealer to deal one more round. These "specific tokes," as Arnold Snyder has labeled them, must be dispensed with great care. Even with a K-O running count of +4 (the pivot point, so roughly a 2°Io advantage), a $5 tip on a $50 hand will cost you 10%, leading to a large overall negative expectation for the hand.

Don't Assume that Poker Players are Liars Away From the Game
One of the reasons I love poker is that I believe strongly in honesty and integrity in personal and business relationships, but I also have a "sneaky side" that I like to indulge and one can play only so many practical jokes. Poker allows me to play little games within the rules and to get my sneaky side out of my system.

Perhaps it is this undercurrent of deception at the tables that accounts for the easy way that so many players tell "white lies" about their results. A "big win" is often just a decent win, a "won a little" means the player broke even, an "I broke even" means a small loss, and "I lost a little" means it wasn't a pleasant night. Only results at both extremes seem to be reported accurately: "I set a new personal best for one night" tends to be trustworthy, as does an "I got my butt kicked so bad, I'm going to have to play standing up for the next month."
