Online Poker In The Spotlight
Amaya Gaming has revealed that two of its prestigious poker brands, PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker recently received the “green light” by the gambling authorities in New Jersey to enter the regulated market in the Garden State.
Poker Stars, the leading online poker room, is attempting to enter the New Jersey gambling market by signing a contract with Resorts Casino Club in Atlantic City to provide the casino club with online poker and games software.
Amaya Gaming Group, the entertainment provider for the regulated gaming industry, is thrilled to announce that it has acquired Ongame Poker, the leading B2B online poker network, from Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment.
After it revoked Full Tilt Poker’s operating license in September last year, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission commissioned an independent review of the way it handled the case in a bid to see whether it could have improved things and to hush any critics. The results of the review, undertaken by Peter Dean, who once served as the chairman of the British Gambling Commission, show that Alderney handled the case ‘appropriately’ and that due process was followed.
Omaha Hold'em, as you know, is different from the way Texas Hold'em is played. However, there is one thing common to both these forms of poker, and indeed any other form of poker you may like to play – for fun or for money: the use of poker strategy. While the strategy for the two different forms of poker is obviously different, what is still the same is the need to have strategy in place.
We all think that poker strategy is all about knowing the right moves during the course of a game. That is a very critical aspect of the game, true. There are those who even have fine demarcations between poker strategy and poker tactics. While the line separating that may be distinct or a blur, depending on which boat your foot is in, let me throw another aspect into the mix – the concept of psychology in poker.
A vital contributor to winning in any game is the pre-match planning and strategy that happens with any professional and win-focused team. If you want to win, if you have a passion for winning, knowing your opponent inside out is very important. This applies even to poker – you would do well to know how your opponents play before taking them on.
