I am Joe Marshall with Expert and today we are going to learn how to win
at poker. I wanted to briefly mention the differences between playing in a casino and
playing in a private game. When you are playing a private game there isn’t a rake usually
and in casino games there is always a rake, What the rake is, is you are playing against
all the other players; you are not playing against the house. Since you are in the casino,
the dealer that deals you the cards will take portions out of each hand out of the ante
and the winnings; it is called the rake. Expert mathematicians say you shouldn’t play in
any casino where they take more than 5% of the rake. Your odds just plummet after that
apparently. So just look out for that.
