Online bingo

While talking about bingo we can make a definition of bingo as it is a legal online gambling game. In order to play bingo you need not to learn any hard and fast rules. The rules and regulations are very easy and straightforward in bingo.

But the factor is that in a legal online gambling casino or operatoe, it is required to fulfill the legal gambling age. And in many places 18 years is considered as legal gambling age. There are no rules or method that can make you the winner of the game sadly. This is all about the Luck.

In other words everything depends purely on the goddess of luck. In a bingo game the player can’t control the game result or the total process. They can’t control over the outcome of the game but they can decide which numbers to choose. And for that reason women get the preference.

The games of blackjack and poker are basically played by the men mostly, these are more macho games. The reason behind that the men like to control the game. They want to have more control over the game. They don’t like to depend on the fate as women do sometimes, or do not care. The only reason that make the online bingo most popular is that it provide the privacy to the player.

The rules and regulations that are needed to play bingo are very much easy and simple. You need to prepare at the beginning of the game at first. At the start of the game you need to buy a playing card. These card are marked with the letter B, I, N, G, O on the front of the column in the top. In another column there will be also some other letter. The participants have to mark the cards when the host announces to do so.

In many patterns you can play bingo. You can play in a vertical direction. If you wish you can play in a horizontal direction. You can also play diagonally or create any pattern you like. The four corners of the board include the other patterns. A bingo player will be the winner when all the numbers of their bingo card have been be selected.

The Mathematics of Poker

A very good book that you should read to better understand poker odds is ‘The Mathematics of Poker’, by Bill Chen and Jerrod Ankenman. You can get a free copy with your frequent players points at Pokerstars. If you have not yet registered, note that there is no pokerstars rakeback, but instead they have a great VIP Club.

I found it to be an informative and challenging read. Short review: This is one of the most important books about poker ever published. For a longer review you can read Terrence Chan’s great early review of the book.

Few books on gambling take a truly analytical approach. In fact, the only other book in my library which comes close is ‘The Theory of Gambling and Statistical Logic’, Revised Edition, by Richard Epstein. Unfortunately, that book has very little real poker content. Chen and Ankenman do the world a service with their thorough analysis of poker. Their methodology is clear, the problems and solutions are interesting, and their insights into the game are remarkable. They’ve also done an excellent job of keeping most of the mathematics accessible to anyone who has a solid grasp of algebra.

Here is an example of the kinds of insights you can get from reading and understanding this book. They have a topological representation of the solution to the one street heads-up finite pot game with a maximum of two bets.

The strongest hands are at the top of their chart, and the weakest hands are at the bottom. The action maps as: f=fold, k=check, c=call, b=bet, r=raise. Each column represents the optimal strategy for the game. The strategy for the first player is in the X column, and the strategy for the second player is in the Y columns. If X bets, then the Y(b) column is used, if X checks, then the Y(k) column is used. It’s important to note that the actual location of the boundaries are not illustrated here, only their relative ordering.

Some basic insights from the solution: You need a stronger hand to check-raise with than you bet-call with. You should fold some of your value bets. Your bluff raises should be done with hands which are stronger (not weaker) than your bluffs.

This is just one example of how deep the book goes, so this is not for you if you are not mathematically inclined.
