Sam Soverel Wins The Cage Live at the Taormina Hotel

Poker pro Sam Soverel won the Cage Live at the Taormina Hotel in Costa Rica. The weather was nice and the winnings only sweeten the pot for this poker pro. The Cage Live is a variation of poker where players enter "the cage" and stop at a designated time. At the end of the tournament, the player with the most chips wins whatever chips they have at the time. It's different than waiting for the phases of cashes in a regular tournament and more like a cash game except time is limited. Americas Cardroom will have several more of the Cage Live games at the Taormina Hotel this year. The tournament is sponsored by Americas Cardroom

Diogo Veiga Wins 2018 WSOP $3,000 Big Blind Ante No Limit Holdem Event
Portugese poker pro, Diogo Veiga has won the 2018 WSOP $3000 Big Blind Ante No Limit Holdem event. He is the third player from Portugal to ever win a bracelet. For his win he gets a whopping $522,715. 
The big blind ante format is just entering the WSOP for the first time this year.  In a big blind ante event, players put up the ante for the entire table. In theory it speeds up the game. Its detractors say for low chip stack periods, putting up the ante for the entire table could wipe a player out. Most players agree, though, it speeds up the game.
On the final day, poker pro Barry Hutter seemed to have everything under control knocking out player after player. Hutter and Viega went heads up with Viega taking the lead by 3:1. Hutter moved all-in with ace ten, but the board proved victorious for Viega who won with a king pair.

Place        Player        Earnings (USD)           
1     Diogo Veiga     $522,715    
2     Barry Hutter     $323,019

The History of Texas Holdem Poker

By D. R. Tupniak

Texas Holdem is a variation of 7 card stud that became popular in the United States in the 1990s but had been played a decade earlier. Poker has always been popular in the United States and Texas Holdem is a poker game. It is believed that the concept of poker started in the Middle Ages although the concept of the game of chance with numbers can date back to the ancient Chinese. The game was introduced in the United States in the French quarter of New Orleans as "poque" hence the name "poker."

When playing Texas Holdem poker, you get two cards dealt face down. These are called your pocket cards. Five other cards are dealt face down in the center of the table. The betting commences as each of the first three cards on the table are flipped over. These are called the flop cards.

Poker is always a hand of five cards, although you can be dealt five or seven cards in the game. Even though you have seven cards, you can only use five to make up your poker hand. In the game of Texas Holdem, you have to use your two pocket cards plus any of the five cards on the table, which everyone else can use as well. Each player has the same hand with the exception of their pocket cards.

There are two different types of poker. Stud poker is when the cards that are dealt is all that is dealt from the deck. Draw poker is when you can take additional cards from the dealer when you relinquish other cards from your hand. With draw poker, you stand a better chance of getting a higher hand than with stud poker. Texas Holdem is a stud poker game.

The fourth card turned up is the turn and the fifth is the river. A conservative poker player will go out after the flop if he or she does not have a good hand. A good hand in Texas Holdem or any other poker game is a pair of Jacks or better. However, many players will stay in the game even if they do not have a good hand if they feel that they can bluff their way through. If you are playing in a tournament for real money, you might be tempted to go out if you are unsure of your hand. A good winning hand in Texas Holdem poker is three of a kind or better.

Poker has been played throughout the ages in one form or another. Texas Holdem is just a variation of this timeless game can easily be dated back to the 13th century. There are thousands of variations of poker that are played throughout the world. Once you understand the concept of the poker game, it is very easy to pick up each different game.

The Nuances of Becoming a Winning Limit Hold 'em Player

By Michael Vall

While we all dream of becoming a master Texas Hold 'em Poker player, the stark reality is that most players never progress to become an effective and consistent player. Those that do develop into consistent winners typically do so because they are able to understand and grasp the nuances of Texas Hold 'em Poker.

There are many considerations for the novice to understand when setting out to play limit Texas Hold em Poker.

While many of us have watched Texas Hold 'em Poker on TV and have seen players bluffed out of pots we understand that this effective strategy in no-limit Texas Hold 'em rarely works in limit because you are limited to a maximum bet. This makes bluffing and picking-up small pots more difficult in limit Texas Hold 'em Poker.

While I do favor an aggressive style of play in limit Texas Hold 'em Poker it does need to be controlled. What this means is that when you do play a pot, you play it strongly.

Another factor to consider in limit Hold 'em is that you can have as many as five or six players going for the pot. This is a result of the fact that bets are fixed so it can be harder to trim down the number of players vying for the pot.

Going up against several players for a pot means that the ability to read an opponents hand is one of the most important tools a limit player needs to develop. Most of the times you are going to have to show down a hand, and being able to read what hands you are going up against will help you make better decisions. Because most of the times you will have to show down a hand you will typically want to stick to playing big hands.

Oftentimes the deciding factor in whether you are successful in limit Texas Hold 'em Poker is patience and self-discipline while playing.

Being patient and waiting for playable hands, especially when you are a beginner is very difficult. It can be boring sitting on the sidelines watching others play out their hands.

You can't let past hands ruin your judgment. Being patient will pay dividends in the long run. Resist the temptation to play bad hands, throw them away. We've all folded away poor hands only to see a great flop that comes down that would have given us a full house or straight. Never let that tempt you into playing poor hole cards.

When you are on the sidelines you should be paying attention to what others are doing. This is where you will begin to develop the ability to read your opponents hands. As mentioned previously, this is one of the most important tools that you can develop.

The time you spend watching others and learning how they play hands will be very useful when you do play a hand against them and are now armed with information on how they played in similar situation.

If you've been playing close attention to your opponent you'll know how many hands he plays, is he aggressive or does he tend to call most of the time. Is he a good player? Does he play the same hands the same way all the time?

By carefully observing your opponents you will be able to pick up 'Tells' - physical mannerisms which may give up information about their hand. When playing online, while you won't be able to pick up the physical tells, you will be able to pick up whether an opponent tends to slow play a certain type of hand or just jump right in with a bet.

You're more likely to profit from this type of information if you're playing with relatively inexperienced players. Tell's great if you find one.

Also keep in mind that your opponents will be observing you for clues on your style of play. That is why it is a good idea to mix-up your play by treating the same situation in different ways. You can avoid being too predictable by changing the way you play your hands.

By avoiding predictability you will keep your opponents off balance.
