Poker Goes to Hollywood (Part 2)

Tags : 

Judi Dench gets first-ever tattoo at age 81 \u2014 see what it ...Hollywood tends to distort poker with stereotypes and really stupid moves and tricks described by scriptwriters who obviously know nothing about the game. But once in a while, you come across a movie that does a decent job of bringing the excitement of poker to the big screen. Here are a few films to rent, enjoy, and be inspired by.

One of the oldest poker movies in the history of Hollywood is the 1922 classic, Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler. It’s a bit kitschy, as you would expect from a movie this old. The premise is that psychic/arch criminal/madman Dr. Mabuse can control the minds of his opponents, and he uses this amazing power to force his gambling opponents to make a dumb move like stand on a three in blackjack, or fold a winning poker hand. The movie has a winning line, which all serious players should be able to quote: “A dream of youthful ambition, to win at cards and love.” Another winning line is “Cards or Cocaine?” which was the password of the private club. It was directed by master director Fritz Lang (who crafted Metropolis), and is considered one of the best silent foreign films.

Born Yesterday, a 1950’s classic with Judy Holliday and Broderick Crawford, will completely redefine the way you think of the phrase “table image”. Holliday’s the stereotypical dumb blonde, and Crawford’s embodies the gruff giant with a hidden soft spot. You may have heard of the 1993 remake with Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, but that wasn’t worth much. Hard to find a copy of the original, you say? Keep looking. The gin scene alone in the 1950’s version will be worth the extra effort.

Henry Fonda and Joanne Woodward star in the 1966 film, A Big Hand for the Little Lady. The title pretty much gives a taste of where the movie is going, and there are a few gaps in the film that will make a poker player roll his eyes and say, “That’ll never happen”, trik bermain judi; https://judionlineterpopuler.doodlekit.com, but all in all it’s a good way to unwind on a slow night.

Three Godfathers was made in 1936, and after that were several remakes-one of the best being the John Wayne 1948 version. It’s got one of the best poker lines in movie history. When Walter Brennan connives to help a man he knows nothing about cheat at a poker game, somebody asks him what he could possibly have gained from breaking the rules. He answers: “I dunno. I guess I’m just a no good rat.”

Another great Hollywood poker scene can be found in the 1950’s film, The Gunfighter. It’s one of the best known Westerns, and stars Gregory Peck as a gunfighter ready to retire to a more quiet life. (Of course, we all know there’s no such thing). There are many comic poker scenes, with winning lines like, “I wouldn’t sit in this game with cards I made myself.” Watch this movie with a beer in one hand and your sense of humor in the other-it’s meant to be fun, not artistic.

Why TV poker can make you wealthy!

Tags : 

Poker is great to watch on TV, trik bermain judi kartu domino it is about psychology and people more than it’s about the cards and so it attracts a large percentage of non-players. People love watching other people in real situations and poker is the latest reality TV craze.

The apparent simplicity of Texas Holdem draws the TV audience and holds them, like all great games and sports it is incredibly simple to understand but extremely difficult to master. Everyone from teenagers to grannies can work out the basics – three of something beats two of them! It’s only a short step to fill in the other hands on the ranking table.

TV Texas Holdem also has a very powerful addictiveness about it. Very quickly you will start to like some players more than others, in some cases people will become fans of certain players and follow their progress. If you start watching early on in a tournament, poker has the ability to hold the attention in such a way that you need to stick with it until the end to see who wins.

OK you’re asking, but how will that make me wealthy?

Well, remember all of these non-players who start watching poker on the TV and get hooked by it’s sheer entertainment value? Very soon some of them will be saying the four little magic words to themselves, the four words that will make you money.

“I can do that!”

Yes of course they want to join in. After all it looks so easy when the professionals raise all-in with a Jack high and steal the pot on a complete bluff against two pairs. What they don’t realise is that it takes years of practise to develop the instinct to know when they can bluff like that. The other point they miss is that TV will edit out the majority of hands and will give a distorted view of the play, it will look like these big bluffs can be pulled off every two or three hands!

Position is of course the other great unknown to the new player. Again to create a more exciting spectacle for the viewer, there is a disproportionate amount of heads up play shown on TV. The non-player absorbs this and takes two false impressions from it, one that you should see the flop almost every hand, and secondly that a good heads up hand is a good hand in any circumstance.

So along come these rookies to the internet tables, full of hope and expectation. They’ve watched Phil Hellmuth take a big heads up pot with pocket Queen Seven and thinks it is OK to call with it when he’s first in to play in a 10 player tournament.

This is very good news for you if you’ve played internet Texas Holdem poker for any length of time at all. All these novices entering the arena on a daily basis eager to try out the new found skills that they’ve learned from the TV means rich pickings for you.

And it’s not going to stop anytime soon. TV poker coverage is getting bigger all the time, and every time Texas Holdem is shown, another new “expert” is born!
