Well, let me tell you that there are three basic reasons. First, it is a big enough pool to not leave big gaps in the top. Second, players are already familiar with the casino. Third, they have the right attitude.
A good casino is one where you are able to feel that the whole casino is working for you. You are on your own. No one is controlling you. As a poker player you just have to wait for it to work for you. A bad casino feels like someone is taking personal credit for what you already did just to get to that big win. But don’t make the mistake of thinking there is anything you have not done just to get there.
The big gap does not exist – there were no games played during this period! At this casino my best winning streak ended in early May 2013. I won a single hand in March (which wasn’t much by today’s standards). You have to keep track, or the gambling world will simply not believe that these people could actually do something in real life, without betting themselves.
I like to think that my average performance was quite high, but you only need to observe your win ratio. For example, a streak of 6 or 5 or 8 times out of every 10 hands is all you need, but some days you are on and off the table. I’ve had many times when I missed a shot for my streak, only to be completely at the table again the next day. This means that I am actually better than average at this casino, given the right environment and time. I am fortunate to have friends with money.
Why play casinos with low win ratios?
First, these low win ratios allow you to play with friends, family and anyone else who gives you an open mind. Many more people play poker in their spare time than they do casinos. The only way to do that is to pay a lot of interest to the casino, and you have to be willing to play on any available bet size.
Second, you can play the roulette, craps, pool tables or sports tables without any fear of being “dumped”. This is especially important if you have only lost 5 times before – you can lose again if you lose one good hand. You can keep a winning streak as long as the casino lets you. The money comes from the people who are paying $5 to play. And there are many of them.
You are in a casino as much as you are in a
