Confusing Poker Opponents

More than 2,000 years ago, Sun Tzu wrote in his classic, The Art of War, “All war is based on deception,” and several writers have made the same point about poker. In fact, without deception, poker can’t exist; if we played with our cards faceup, the game would fall apart. Because we don’t know each other’s hole cards, and we misunderstand how our opponents are playing, we all make countless mistakes, calling when we should fold, checking when we should bet, and so on. This series has shown that first impressions are one of the most important deceptive factors. They distort the way all later information is processed. First, we must understand how we are biased by first impressions and do whatever we can to decrease these biases. Second, we should generate first impressions that confuse our opponents, and then reinforce these false first impressions to maintain and increase our edge over them. It isn’t easy to think or act this way. In reality, most players are long-term losers. If you want to be a winner, you have to do the unnatural things that winners do.

If you arrive at the poker room with $100 as your bankroll, you should probably start at the lowest limit possible, no matter how skilled you are. A hundred dollars can go fast even in a $1-$4 game but it will last a lot longer there than it will in a $5-$10 game. Many beginners have a certain amount of anxiety they bring to a game. This is only natural and it will go away in time. It’s best to do some deep breathing and get yourself as relaxed as possible before you dig your spurs into the horse’s side and take off across the landscape like a wild man.

Unrealistic expectations and overestimation of our abilities increase frustrations because we expect to beat games that are too tough for us. Our selective memories reinforce both our overestimation of our abilities and our anger about being “so unlucky.” Be sure to play the game and not play your emotion!

Thank you to everyone who supported the beta and to everyone who are buying the game, without you we would not be able to continue working on Darkout and improving it for a long time to come!

There you have it! Many exciting goodies are going to come our way.

Price, Final Verdict

The game is priced at $14.99. Is it worth it? I believe it is. Like I said, I make sure I research the game prior to purchasing it so personally, I felt like I picked well and it was a money well spent.  I am actually very happy.

With everything the game has so far, and as you guys have read, many more new and exciting features to come, Yes, I do believe it is worth it.

I am really liking the fact that the devs are trying to tailor the game towards the suggestions and constructive criticism of the community. The devs seems like they are really trying to reach out to us in order to help improve their game. They also ask the community to help them decide what to create or implement next. These are unpaid developers who created this beautiful game and wished to share it with us, so honestly, if I have to pay 15 buckaroos to show them love back and support, I really don’t mind. Like I said, I am also receiving more than $15 worth of current and upcoming updates and features.

Stardew Valley Game Review

A hybrid RPG+SI am Game Sneak-Peak Review

Image taken from official Stardew Valley website

I do not know about you guys, but I do not really believe that for a game to be great, it has to have weep-worthy graphics. I actually like playing good quality games where the graphics is not as godly as let us say, mass effect. I find it nostalgic and endearing when I play games that has the pixelated thing going on like on Terraria or other sim games on my smartphone (a present from my father. So yes, I am still a qualified poor college student) .

Now having said that, Chucklefish LTD is going to publish a ConcernedApe creation, an RPG+Simulation game called Stardew Valley (Note: Chucklefish LTD are the ones currently developing the sci-fi sandbox game with the same 2-bit style called Starbound).

Known Features So Far

(Note: Unlike Starbound this is not a sidescrolling game. I also think this is a game for Harvest Moon Fans everywhere. I am excited for this game to come out so that I can do a full on game review on it for you guys.)

There is a lot of things you can do in this game. Not only do you get to work on your farm, but you get to interact with the NPC in your village (30 characters I believe), and even woo that sexay thang you got your eyes on and eventually marry him/her. Sounds Familiar? I am currently playing Harvest Moon for 3DS and it is  very similar to this version of HM. Now, similarly to HM, you may customize your characters appearance as well as customize your home with wallpapers that you can apparently purchase from the local store. There will also be numerous furniture choices.

The game also has a certain feature that intrigues me. You are able to make choices where the consequences  of your action can make or break your land.

here is a preview of the game:

You will be able to play 4-people co-op:

Build and manage your farm!

Of course a farm would not be complete without animals to raise! (This is my favorite feature, they are just so cute!)

Now what about the RPG/Adventure side of this game? Well you get to explore caves and kill shi~.

Yup, no rest for the wicked farmers here.~ here is a sneak peek for you guys. Check it out:

I will keep you guys updated with the game =) if anymore information comes out concerning features and updates Ill post it up.

End Note

Now, knowing these guys, I am pretty sure we are going to see some hefty amount of contents. I am actually confident that this game is going to be fun indeed. What do you guys think?

🙂 Thank you for reading my humble ramblings.

Harmful effects of gambling

Gambling takes several forms. You can bet on sports, cards or you can play lotteries and machine games. You can even gamble online. In general, gambling is harmless. Many people gamble for fun, however, there is a population of people that gamble so much that it becomes an obsession that inhibits their normal life activities and leads to harmful effects.

The first harmful effect gambling can have on you is financial. In order to play you need money. Many casinos have developed low cost games to entice more people to play their games of chance. People on limited budgets are attracted by low cost games like nickel Keno, penny bingo and low stakes poker. However, many people lose track of how much money they are actually putting into these games, and after hours of playing these low cost games, hundreds, if not thousands of dollars can be spent. This puts many players into a difficult financial position.

The second harmful effect gambling can have on you is psychological. Gambling can become an impulse and lead to an addiction. People who become addicted to card games can gamble away their food money, their rent money, their homes and eventually, their lives.

The third harmful effect gambling can have on you is social. People who gamble online a lot are missing out on social interactions that can enrich their lives. If a person develops an online gambling addiction, they may spend most of their waking hours online, isolated from the world. This is not healthy and it can lead to feelings of isolation, depression and agoraphobia.

The final harmful effect that gambling can have on you is emotional. Casino games, and gambling in general, is designed so that you are going to lose money. Constantly losing at a game can impact your self esteem and make you feel that you are a loser. The wins that you do achieve only add to the problem. They give you false hope that you will walk away a millionaire and they entice you to play more. Unfortunately, this enticement leads you to gamble away all the money that you won plus some.

Online gambling regulations

Many people think that the fact that online casinos are online means they are not subject to the normal rules and regulations of gambling. This is not true. Online casinos and gambling are regulated by several laws and restrictions. Learn what they are before you set up your online gambling account.

The first online gambling regulations that you will want to learn about are licensing requirements. In order for an online casino to operate legally, no matter what country they are set up in, they need to be licensed. The license must be issued by the country that the online casinos owner has the business set up in.

In the United States, the legality of online gambling is a state issue. In order for an online casino to be legal to play in you have to make sure that there are no laws against online gambling in the state you are in and in the state or country that the online casino is registered with. Currently there are no states that permit online gambling site licensing. However, some states are working on online casino legislation to permit online gambling in their state. Until this legislation has passed, it’s a good idea to stick to playing at the free casino sites.

Another regulation that has passed long time ago is the Unlawful Internet Gambling Act of 2006. This act received a lot of press. It was designed to prevent online casinos from evading state gambling laws. However, because federal jurisdiction does not extend to offshore companies, this act took steps to prohibit American banks from funding any type of online gambling account. This made it nearly impossible for U.S. residents to play at pay-to-play casinos.

Age is another issue that is carefully regulated by online casinos. Generally, you will need to be over 21 years of age in order to play at an online casino. If the country that licensed the online casino has a lower legal gambling age, then people over 18 years of age may be allowed. However, you will need to read the Rules for Playing page at the online casinos that you are interested in to determine age restrictions.
