Pub-Club Poker Gambling Standards

Ok, so you head to your local pub head to the bar order your favorite tipple and have a seat before the TV that is currently showing live horse racing.

You turnaround to see who else is there before settling down to own 5 mins with the newspaper,
On looking around you find four men in the corner of the room with increased than £40 on the pool table as they are playing for £10 a man per frame

In the opposite corner, you see four similar-looking men sat around a bit of green cloth in what seems like connect4 coins before them, and on the ledge underneath the table you find a glass with the same £40 in it.

You stroll to begin to see the four men playing cards whilst the pool does not interest you and you are of low quality at it and they should be good as they are wagering £10 each.

You ask to pull up a chair at the card table and watch for approximately 5-10 minutes before asking to join as "This looks easy it's all luck nothing like the pool where you will need to have the ability to play" ;.

Within 5 minutes of seated, you are already reaching into your pocket to have out another £5 as you've been already fleeced from your first initial buy-in. "Ah that's OK though that bloke just got lucky on me he must experienced good cards to bet very much all of the time"

But did he?? Or was he utilising the same type of skill that has been needed by the pool players to win their money?

This is actually the underlying question isn't it?

I have now been playing poker now in league's casino's and home games for over 4 years and the total amount of those who don't play or understand poker have uttered the immortal words "I possibly could beat you at poker it's easy its exactly about who has the most effective cards" is unbelievable.

I think they're the same those who write the laws on Public House / Private member Club Poker Gambling restrictions.
£5 in 24 hours per player with no more than £100 spend for Pub's & £10 in 24 hours with no more than £250 spend for private members clubs, what a joke

If you're playing pool, bingo, the tote or on usually the one arm bandit you could wager a full weeks wages within just an hour or so, but when you intend to use your whit your skill and your capability to play poker against other like minded people if you visit a casino, every time you open the cards and place a lot more than your £5 or £10 up for grabs you are immediately breaking the law.

It always gets mentioned but I will repeat it for the sake of this short article "Why we always see the same faces at the last tables" Daniel Negranu has just proven this with his second final table at the WSOPE in 2 years and the same with 2008 WSOP runner up Ivan Demidov reaching the last table of both the WSOP & WSOPE in the area of a couple of months, Dennis Phillips last years final table appearance at the WSOP and a good deep run as of this years event. These people are not lucky yes they've had to catch a couple of lucky cards here and there and win a couple of coin flips along the way but they're skilful at what they do and keep this well through there knowledge and comprehension of the overall game not by pure luck.

I think that the us government really need to look at this and so long as the games are run fairly and league nights are run honestly and openly then poker ought to be treated as just as much as a game title of skill as some other sport or game. And the restrictions ought to be raised allowing an improved standard of play throughout the poker playing community and never having to break the bank or the law.

How about our MPs looking at raising the stakes to not silly amounts but to an acceptable price where players will bring it more severe and a higher standard of play will be reached across the way.

The quantity of those who do well at pub leagues however completely bust out when planning to the casino is due to the massive gulf in the conventional of play.

We need to look at obtaining the Games raised to a min on £20 per 24 hours with a maximum spend of £500 for pubs and £35 and a maximum spend of £750 for private members clubs.
