Know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’emPoker is America’s national card game, and its popularity continues to grow. Nationwide, you can find a game in progress everywhere. If you want to play, you can find poker games on replicas of 19th century riverboats or on Native American tribal lands.
You can play poker at home with the family or online with opponents from around the world. Like bowling and billiards before it, poker has moved out from under the seedier side of its roots and is flowering in the sunshine.
Maybe you’ve never played poker before and you don’t even know what a full house is. Poker For Dummies covers the basics. Or perhaps you’ve played for years, but you just don’t know how to win. This handy guide will help you walk away from the poker table with winnings, not lint, in your pockets.
If you’re a poker expert, you still can benefit – some of the suggestions may surprise you, and you can certainly learn from the anecdotes from professional players like T. J. Cloutier and Stu Unger.
Know what it takes to start winning hand after hand by exploring strategy; getting to know antes and betting structure; knowing your opponents, and understanding the odds. Poker For Dummies also covers the following topics and more: Poker games such as Seven-Card Stud, Omaha, and Texas Hold’em Setting up a game at home Playing in a casino: Do’s and don’ts Improving your play with Internet and video poker Deciphering poker sayings and slang Ten ways to read your opponent’s body language Playing in poker tournaments Money management and recordkeeping Knowing when and how to bluff Poker looks like such a simple game.

You can succeed in poker the way you succeed in life: by facing it squarely, getting up earlier than the next person, and working harder and smarter than the competition. Foreword by Chris Moneymaker, 2003 World Series of Poker Champion.
I bought this book as a beginning poker player who is starting a home poker group with people who never played poker before. The book was great and has helped me choose which games to start with and what options there are for us down the road.
It also has tips on improving our play which we will use later. This is a great resource for beginning and novice poker players.
I am a beginner poker player and have been watching alot of poker on t. v. and wanted a referance guide to some of the terms that sound different. This pocket referance guide is just that. I enjoyed reading it and with it being pocket size can slip it in my purse and go to it fast to get information.
The only thing that I did not like about this referance guide is that it mentioned different types of poker such as stud, whaich was a little to take out of the context. Over all, for the beginner, I would recommend this book.

Includes sturdy aluminum storAge case with handle for onthego fun and keeping all your pieces organized.
I just opened this last night. The case is not well put together. The tray that the pieces sit inside is already falling apart and the seam of the case is now coming off. I almost find it laughable that this happened after two opening and closes of the case.
We were excited to get this case to add to our collection. This is definitely a regret purchase. Don’t waste your time or money.
Definitely not the most high-quality poker set but a heck of a good deal for $25! Some of the chips are a little right and have players but exceeded my quality expectations overall for the price! Case is very strict and will probably let for years to come.

Bicycle brand cards were coveted by my son when he was younger and loved doing magic tricks. They are high quality, they slip easily against each other and do not become sticky over time. They do not split at the sides when they are shuffled like other cards do.
I teach kindergarten students and we use cards a lot for maths games. I ordered these bicycle brand cards to gift a pack to each child in my class for the end of the school year. I gave them out today and the kids were thrilled.
These cards were purchased to replace some pathetic cards. It took multiple tries to get the plastic more pliable. Definately holding up better than the old cards. My hands have arthritis. Not as comfortable to handle.
Do you remember learning your first card game. How about winning at an old fashioned game of solitaire. Or that holiday tradition of Gin Rummy after dinner. Known for quality, heritage, and bringing people together for generations, Bicycle playing cards have been a part of household gaming since 1885.
From professional card players to the neighborhood game night, Bicycle playing cards are part of the gaming tradition. Every Bicycle playing card deck is specially crafted so that you can trust Bicycle cards performance hand after hand.
The Rivals for Catan puts you in charge of one of the two factions developing newly-settled Catan. Use your under card mix to create your own principality. Explore and settle new lands, acquiring resources through card play and the luck of the dice.
Use gold, response combinations, and trade to develop your domaine. Expand your settlements and cities recruit heroes, and defend your lands through politics, invention, and intrigue. Your cunning and a dash of luck decides who will be Prince of Catan.
Terrible. Basically nothing like the original. Over complicated is an understatement. No way my 10 year old could understand this. Or my 13yo or me, at 34, for that matter. Set up alone took 30-40 min the first time, and that wasn’t even understanding what you were gonna do.
Games should be fun, relaxing, and enjoyable; this made me frustrated, crabby and after the first 2 turns we put it away and it will be donated or thrown out. Complete waste of $26, wish I could get my Money back.
I can’t express enough how awful this was. Glad I played the original version first because had I tried this one I would have never tried the multi player. Please don’t waste your money or judge the 3 player game on the 2 player version.
I don’t know what all of the complaining is about. This is a pretty damn easy game to learn, just gotta play the introductory game a few times with rule book in hand. The hardest part is remembering what each symbol on the event die does, but that’s where you easily reference the rules.
This my partner and I’s new favorite game! It’s easy to learn, yet the strategical depth is there and there is so much you can do! I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys the board game hobby outside of basic childhood board games.
It goes without saying that Settlers of Catan is the game that started it all (for me and a lot of other people who enjoy the hobby) Rivals of Catan very much maintains the core idea, and infact uses some pretty cool play mechanics to simulate the full game.
My wife and I enjoy this game a lot, although without some of the expansions which are included the game can feel like more of a race against each other, more than a trading game as player interaction is limited.
But it doesn’t stop it being fun, and of course all the cards help it to feel like you are in the world of Catan. As a finish I would say that this game shouldn’t be thought of as what 7 Wonders Duel is to 7 Wonders, i think those games are better.
But the dice, events and clever layout still make it very enjoyable. I very much recommend.

I was invited to a friends party when I tried this tequila. I loved it is so smooth I did not even feel like I was drinking alcohol. I am at this party 5shots in having a blast when suddenly i feel a bit of the alcohol come over me like a nice warm blanket.
I proceeded to take 3 more shots and I was taken over by the alcohol I was not able to walk straight, nor do I remember how I made it into the room. In conclusion this was the best tequila I have had in a while 10 out of 10 experience.
This by far was the best gift given at my friends 25th birthday! Even with all the designer purses and Apple products she received, she was most impressed and wowed about this bottle! Not only was it fun for the party, it’s a statement/memory piece she can keep on the mantle forever to remember he 1/4 life birthday party! This is definitely my go to party present for now on.
