Escazu, Costa Rica (PressExposure) February 20, 2009 -- Poker News Daily is gaining fame as the worldâs premier source for poker strategy articles. In addition to the industryâs most experienced team of poker news reporters, the site also features a full strategy section, with content authored by the industryâs brightest minds. Two recent additions to the Poker Strategy library include examinations of proper Omaha High-Low play as well as an overview of HORSE, which incorporates five of the most popular varieties of poker.
The Omaha poker strategy article is entitled âSome Simple Omaha High-Low Advice.â In it, Poker News Dailyâs Dan Katz discusses profitable starting hole cards to play and stresses the importance of sticking to the basics. Katz added, âSomeone almost always has the nuts,â six words that should be at the forefront of every poker playerâs mind as they navigate the sometimes murky waters of Omaha. The game is one of the fastest-growing genres of poker around, as established Texas Holdâem players begin to seek out a new challenge.
The $50,000 HORSE Championship held during the annual World Series of Poker has attracted a healthy amount of attention to the game. Last yearâs escapade involving Scotty Nguyenâs potentially inebriated play really put HORSE on the map. Poker News Dailyâs Earl Burton takes a look at the five games that make up HORSE: Holdâem, Omaha, Razz, Stud, and Stud Eight or Better. Burton cautioned prospective HORSE players that Razz is often the most difficult of the games to master: âBecause the objective is to get the worst hand possible instead of the best, many players will make mistakes. It isnât played much as a stand alone game and, as such, most poker players arenât proficient in its nuances.â
Other poker strategy articles have focused on the min-raise, the power of perception, and classic ICM situations. In addition, Poker News Daily writers have recruited some of the gameâs best to break down key hands. These have included Team PokerStars Pro member Bertrand âElkyâ Grospellier on a hand that propelled him to victory during the World Poker Tourâs Festa al Lago, Steven âPiKappRaiderâ Burkholder battling against Adam âRoothlusâ Levy, Scott "dorinvandy" Dorin breaking down pots during the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), and WSOP bracelet winner Matt âmattg1983â Graham discussing hands during his PokerStars $100 rebuy victory. Poker News Daily has 40 strategy articles in total running the gamut of topics, with more added each week.
