During the weekend I ended up playing a lot of poker with my buddies who came over to watch the Grey Cup.
I am not an expert with Poker and Texas Hold 'em and I probably played more games than I ever played combined prior to 06.11.17.
One problem we came with was when a player was short of the required minimum wager (set by the little and big blind). For example if the big blind was 32 tokens and a player had 15 tokens left, did he have to leave the game or could he gamble with what he had left?
I decided to look that up on the internet and could not find any specific debate on that question. While I was searching, I decided to look at shuffling cards. I found that it was interesting that it was standard for poker players to shuffle the playing card in this order:
"A typical sequence between hands of poker, for example, is a wash, two riffles, a strip, a third riffle, and a cut, which an experienced dealer can accomplish in as little as five seconds." [Source: Wikipedia]Anyways, I sure hope I do not become a compulsive gambler after that weekend, but it was fun to be able to play frequently with lower wagers instead of playing once with a higher wager.
On another note, I was rooting for Alouettes so it sucks that the Lions won.
