If you are a card game lover, poker lover or just someone who likes the adrenaline rush of the sport, then you have had bad days playing cards and some good days.
Often times the numbers or better known as the odds make you feel like you are not gambling as much but ultimately you are still gambling even if the other player has one card that can beat you. So you are not really guaranteed to be a winner, often people win 30x what they came in with and don’t walk away with a dime… Why is this? Some will say it was a bad day and others would say they didn’t calculate the odds right… Often times other players trap you into going “all in” and have no problem with losing more money then you are.
If you are only willing to lose $100 but the other player is willing to lose $500, most likely the player with the $500 will walk out the winner. Again, most likely if you 2 are near the same skill level simply because he/she will just be willing to throw more money on a “maybe” and the river often time gives them their triplets or straight. The only way someone can still be apart of this game and be a winner every night are the dealers.
Becoming a dealer may be kind of hard to become especially if you do not know where to start. So where do you start? Well there is a few ways you can attack the problem; often times it is better to be a player for awhile learning while you are playing much like people who are sports officials and coaches.
The best way to become an official is to be a player and then become a official because the need to know the rules and regulations is a must. One objection many will have – and the objection is justifiable, is “I don’t have enough cash to play games with my money and I don’t want to risk my fun money either.” Well, the best bet would be to find local places that play free rolls and take advantage of the free lessons one will have by playing these games.
In order for someone to be successful you really don’t have to play the game at all; just know the rules & regulations, have great dealer mechanics, good morals and find someone willing to give you a shot at dealing at their games.
Suggested route 6 steps to dealing:
1 Become a player (free roll or cash), watch poker on espn and/or just learn what wins hands
2 Learn the W.S.O.P rules and the rules & regulations of the type of poker you wish to deal and/or play
3 Learn poker ethics
4 Learn dealer mechanics by going to true poker dealer website and/or find a dealer willing to teach you the mechanics of the game
5 Learn the rules and regulations and most importantly Practice, practice and more Practice
6 Begin asking the managers or host about potential places that may allow you to deal games(start at a small level to ensure you are not over your head)
