Some of the best gaming TV channels are using up to twenty cameras to cover exciting poker events. It seems the James Bond image of thousands of dollars being at stake in any one hand is grabbing the public's attention and making celebrities out of the players with nerves of steel prepared to face down any opposition. THe cameras involve the audience by spying on hole cards that the players themselves can't see and as a result heat up the unfolding drama. It's Big Brother with risk, money, strategy and skill.
Today's Poker Tip
One of the finer points of poker is that the game exposes you to more experience as you move up through the various stakes. If you've been doing well at $1-$2 games, make the move up to $2-$4. Make sure you watch the more expensive games first and see what more experienced players bring to their game. It's a bit like natural selection. You'll see right away how the players at higher stake games have evolved their play to the next level. It's a rewarding move because even if you can find it tough, you'll learn more and you can always drop back down for a while. If you do, you'll find right away you're a bigger fish in a smaller pond. Try it. Dinosaurs tend to die out after a while. Move up the food chain!
