The turn comes out Jc, so now the board reads 10s-7d-5h-Jc, you decide to stay aggressive because you feel like at best now your opponent has middle pair and or a draw and with the right bet you can get him to fold. So you bet out in front of him 10$, he pauses for a moment calls your 10$ and re-raises you 5$ more. Now you really hate your hand but your poker instinct and pot odds is telling you to call his re-raise, so you do and then the river hits it is a 10d, the board now reads 10s-7d-5h-Jc-Jd. You are sure that your beat but equally sure your opponent is still on a weak hand in order to escape the hand and save some of your bankroll you check to your opponent, then your opponent pauses and then bets into you 4$. In disbelief you call […]

Comments Off on Poker Strategy – Mixing It Up Part 1

When playing in a tournament or cash game one key to success is having the ability to mix it up. If you’re playing style becomes known to someone at your table you will soon find yourself on the other end of a very short stack. For example let’s take a look at Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, here is a guy that you would say never mixes it up, always stone-faced, takes a measured pause before each and every poker decision, and never deviates from this seemingly dull style of play, right? Wrong, Chris Ferguson is a player who really understands mixing it up. His style or approach to playing each hand is another level of security to his mastery of the game. Although it can seem predictable and repeatable at times it is just the opposite, no matter what two starting cards he gets dealt he plays them in the exact […]

Comments Off on Team Fortress

Team Fortress Classic is a classic. A classic. Did you know Team Fortress is responsible for starting team play in online games? And also introduced drivable vehicles? The online community has so much to be thankful for. Gameplay: You choose from 2 different tribes to play from. You are loyal to your tribe. But it doesn’t stop there.

Comments Off on Sudden Strike

The game is addictive, realistic, and cool. It takes place in World War II, Europe. Sudden Strike is about defending, attacking, killing and winning. The game gets boring after a long time. Gameplay: Sudden Strike is one slice of a game. You really need strategy to win. Protect the Volga bridges from the Nazis or land the invasion of Normandy that happened decades ago. There are two things I dislike about Sudden Strike, 1)The units cross bridges dumbly, and 2)Soldiers who you command to cross a valley full of corpses actually LISTEN and get themselves KIAed. The game is easy to control and has thousands of units you control. AI can be bad. Graphics: The graphics can be awesome. The Dutch-like European houses and farms, light, white snow terrain, and dark forests. The brown, dirty craters after battle, the LSTs, everything looks good. Sound: The sound is beautiful in Sudden […]
