Learn to put up a good fight when there's a bully at the poker table
It can be really frustrating to have an extremely aggressive player at your table who just won't seem to leave you alone. No matter what you do, the bully keeps coming after you, especially if you aren't getting any good cards of your own. Hopefully, after reading this column, you'll have all the tools you need to fight the good fight and start pounding back. If you know anything about a bully, you know that if you stand up to him, he'll usually run away and hide. Let him run, but get his chips fi...

More than chips at stake in poker pioneer's best bluff
Henry Orenstein, perhaps the father of televised poker where the audience can actually see when a player pretends to have a good hand, knows a few things about running a bluff. More than 60 years ago, his life literally depended on it. And so did the lives of his brothers and several dozen other prisoners of a Nazi concentration camp. For most of World War II, the 82-year-old Orenstein - who developed and patented the camera concept that allows TV viewers to see poker players' hole cards - was hel...

World Cup of poker on CBS
Henry Orenstein, the Verona resident who created the card camera, continues to provide innovative ways to present poker on TV. While most of the poker world is focused on the 2006 World Series of Poker, which began last week, Orenstein has his own summertime coup -- a weekly poker series on CBS. "The Intercontinental Poker Championship," which airs at 3 o'clock Sunday and continues the next three Saturday afternoons, features 21 of the world's top players, all from different countries, battling fo...

Knowing when to lay down is one key to survival
Happy Fourth of July weekend - a time to get together with friends, barbecue some dogs and burgers and maybe play a little Texas hold ’em. And like the man says, if you want to finish top dog in poker, you gotta know when to hold ’em, and know when to fold ’em. The hardest hand to lay down, of course, is top pair. But knowing when to muck a seemingly dominant hand is what separates the players from the pretenders. Such lay-downs are tough, but at times they’re the only smart thing to do. F...

Mike Sexton splits $1 million pot with charities
It was 17 years ago that Mike Sexton won his first World Series of Poker bracelet and it took 17 hours for him to win his second WSOP tournament, the much-heralded 2006 WSOP Tournament of Champions at the Rio in Las Vegas. The spokesman and host is now sitting on top of the world, having returned to the winner’s circle in an event that he actually helped to conceive in 1998. Sexton, elated, but exhausted after a gruelling 17 straight hours of play, got a chance to see the $1 million passed his way...

Poker Movie Trend Continues
The proliferation of poker productions continues -- with at least three big-screen movies, in addition to such TV fare as celebrity-poker tourneys and reality TV. With Curtis Hanson's "Lucky You" drama with Robert Duvall, Drew Barrymore, Eric Bana and Jean Smart, due Sept. 15, Joe Carnahan's "Smokin' Aces" is in hold 'em mode -- now due in January. That's the action-comedy with a cast including Ben Affleck, Andy Garcia, Ray Liotta, Alicia Keys and Jason Bateman. And now, add to the lineup "Posit...

Stuck with a short stack? Don't give up yet
When playing in a poker tournament you'll often find yourself in situations where you're short-stacked in relation to the blinds. This can happen for a number of reasons. Maybe you've lost a big hand, or perhaps the cards just haven't been coming for you. Whatever the cause, you have limited options, but you do have options. Too often I see players go all-in with garbage hands, essentially giving up, since they are short-stacked. Well, would you believe that World Series of Poker champion, Jack St...

2005 World Series of Poker winner says he's got target on his head
LAS VEGAS (AP) - A year ago, Joseph Hachem was a mortgage broker who surreptitiously played poker online to support his family. After winning last year's World Series of Poker main event and $7.5 million, the Australian says he's now treated like a rock star - but he's got a price on his head. Players nowadays are targeting him for the chance to say they toppled a giant, he says. That makes the likelihood of a repeat win this year very small. "The reality is, the chances (against) me winning again...

Be careful what you learn from televised poker
While watching televised poker is an excellent way to learn how to play the game, you really need to be careful about how you interpret what you're seeing. The key point to remember is that you're watching an edited-down poker show. You're not seeing all the hands played, and that can give you a skewed version of what is really happening. For example, you might have seen me make a bluff in a certain situation that looked foolish because my opponent called. What you might not have seen, however, is...
