Chicago Poker – Poker Play: An Effective Strategy At Any Level

I never had an interest in gambling until I moved to Vegas. I was living in the suburbs of Chicago and working as a kitchen manager of a downtown restaurant. I never had time to socialize since work seemed to take up all my time. I was usually too tired from the long days of managing the restaurant. My wife and I were in the process of building a house in a brand new development. After our house was built, we made the decision to moved to Vegas. The timing was perfect, there was a housing boom in full force at the time and we bought our 2nd home at a great price. I moved out ahead of my wife for the purpose of finding work in the restaurant business. She was a registered nurse and was guaranteed work at a very nice hospital. Everything was good, or so I thought. Still unable to find a job at that point, we both eventually settled in our new home in Vegas and sold our house in Chicago and then divorced. I was single and jobless. I went through a few meaningless jobs before I landed a job dealing poker at Binion's Horseshoe during The World Series of Poker. I had a natural love for the game and was intrigued by the math involved in poker. My fascination with being able to get good "reads" on people led me on a pursuit to learn all I could about body language and the math behind poker.

Cheap Poker Tables – Does Anyone Know What The Three Fold Poker Tables Are Like? Are They Of Good Quality?

I've seen them. Some of them are OK... they "rail" and cupholders are deep enough to place a drink. Some are really thin, and it's like putting a drink on a flat surface.

Also, check the felt. Some of the table surfaces are really hard, which sometimes makes it harder to get under your cards to pick them off of the table. Some of them are good, though.

Lastly, whenever there's a fold in the table, there's a chance for the table to get misaligned (almost creating a ramp or a barrier). When dealing over the "ramp", sometimes the cards will turn over, causing a mis-deal.

So, a three-fold table has the possibility of two of these ramps or barriers.

Personally, I'd prefer a full table (non-folding), or a single-fold table. There are blueprints/plans on the internet where you can make a really nice table yourself, and not have to worry about the folds.
