This maxim has been used and overused through time. I have heard it said so many times in so many contexts that sometimes, I do not even know what it is about. Still, if you think about it, knowledge REALLY is power. Whatever the context you may be in, having the appropriate information can make or break you.
The best players for example in the online card rooms make their money but having knowledge that the other players simply don’t have. The industry pros at sites like 888 simply make their money from players with less knowledge….its that simple.
Same thing when you go into a casino. I think the main reason that casinos and gambling in general get the bad rap all the time is the fact that many people go into the casino without the appropriate knowledge. What happens then is that they end up ruining their finances and themselves. Then the bad flak starts.
But it doesn’t have to be like that! Casinos are here for fun and entertainment. They shouldn’t ruin a person’s life. That is why I strongly believe that before you go inside a casino, you should hold all the necessary information for you to have a fun time – and hopefully a successful one as well.
So how do you do that? I think that you should do all your research prior to actually visiting a casino. Check out what games are being offered in the casino and make sure that you know which ones have the best table games and which games have the best odds. This knowledge does not come with instinct. If you are new to casinos and their table games, you have to actually LEARN and read about these things. Remember, knowledge is power and with it comes success at the tables.
The fact of the matter is though that the really successful practitioners in any field are the ones that operate with creativity and flair and are different to everybody else. The casino acts almost like the dealer in blackjack in so much that they have fixed rules. The player on the other hand has the chance to be the “card counter” so to speak and can use ingenuity to gain an edge. This is really when the casinos have very little defence from some very intelligent and determined individuals.
