Legal Consequences of Cheating At Poker
As long as poker has been played, there have been crooked players trying to beat the game through cheating. The history of poker is not perfectly clear, but the game was played on Mississippi riverboats in the early 1800s and one of its first references was in a book written by Jonathan H. Green in 1843 where he called it “the cheating game.”
Muck Aces Preflop
However, you only get dealt aces about 0.45 percent of the time (or 1 out of about 222 hands). Since aces are so rare, most people want to make the most of them. Some players choose to raise preflop no matter what position they are in. They would rather take a small pot than allow an opponent to sneak into the pot, and watch their aces lose a huge pot.
Beware Of The Minimum Raise
Say you're playing in a low-stakes ring game. The blinds are $.50 and $1, and it's folded to you in middle position. You find a nice hand - pocket Tens - and bring it in for a standard raise of three times the big blind. It's folded around to a player in late position, who re-raises the minimum amount, making it $5 to go.
