This wager can be tough to place unless you're in Las Vegas standing at the betting window. It's only available for a short period of time, because it's posted at the end of the first half of a game, and your wager has to be placed before the start of the second half.

I suggest that you only bet half-time lines on games where you have seen the first half of the action.

Because poker basic rules are so simple, anyone can learn poker in a few minutes, and novice players may even think they're pretty good after a few hours. From the expert's point of view, the veneer of simplicity that deludes so many players into thinking they're good is the profitable side of the game's beauty. It doesn't take long for pool players or golfers to realize they're outclassed and to demand that a match be handicapped, but losers in poker return to the table over and over again, donating their money and blaming their losses on bad luck, not bad play
